Ibn Sina’s 1038th Birthday One of the pre-modern world’s most influential philosophers, #IbnSina (sometimes known as “#Avicenna” in the West) was born in the year 980, during what’s now known as the #IslamicGoldenAge. Ibn Sina grew up in Afšana, a village near #Bukhara, near present-day #Uzbekistan. A self-taught polymath, Ibn Sina learned Indian arithmetic from an Indian grocer. He continued to pursue learning throughout his life, undertaking an intense study of #Aristotle’s Metaphysics when he was in his teens, and studying medicine from the age of 16 (reportedly finding this subject “easy”). A writer in a wide range of fields, Ibn Sina authored 131 books, the most influential of which is the monumental Al Qanun fil-Tibb, ‘The Canon of Medicine.’ This pioneering study was translated into Latin in the 12th century, and became the predominant text used in European medical courses until the 17th century. The first work to identify contagious diseases such as tuberculosis, to hypothesize that soil and water spread sickness, and to set forth the basics of anatomy, pediatrics, and gynecology, the ‘Canon’ is now credited as forming the basis of Western medicine. Today’s Doodle celebrates Ibn Sina: a life devoted to education and the spirit of learning for the betterment of humankind. Doodle by Cynthia Yuan Cheng #AncientCMGH

I wonder if Ethos and Pathos are around here somewhere... 🤔 #Logos #ClassicalEducation #NotreDame
Perhaps the most stunning work of art that I saw at the #MetCloisters. Just imagine, this #boxwood carving is only a few inches tall, and it was carved without the aid of any computers or modern technology. Simply amazing. #RosaryBead #Triptych #ChristianArt
This map projection is truly upsetting. Have you ever SEEN such an egregious Greenland?! 🇬🇱 Cute otherwise though...
