Over the course of De fabrica’s seven books Vesalius divides the text into 188 chapters. Amazingly – and perhaps appropriately – the first two books, discussing the skeletal and muscular systems, account for 102 of these sections. It is evident from the headings, moreover, that Vesalius divides his text according to the needs of an anatomist, rather than those of an editor. The text of De fabrica functions as a narrative that follows the chronology of dissection from the inside out, beginning with the skeleton.
And even those who were less interested in mathematical reasoning appreciated the implications of Harvey’s mathematically-inflected concept of circulation for the nation’s financing challenges. Described in the 1628 publication of De motu cordis and taught by Harvey as part of the natural philosophy course of study at Cambridge, the theory that the heart forces blood through the body in a cyclical-motion circulatory system suggested how money, like blood, could be recirculated, increasing wealth and production through continuous repetition rather than through an increased supply of bullion into the system.
However, Paterson’s numbers are remarkable in another sense as well. 27 Political economics challenged the public to accept an abstract, systemic manner of thought that, like Harvey’s circulatory system, was anchored neither by traditional philosophical forms of knowledge about the polis nor by experiential, sensory data. 28 What political economists offered instead of the tangible forms of currency at the centre of their debates was the virtual ‘sensory’ experience of mathematical argument. Paterson’s relatively simple calculations thus invoked an imaginary, idealized world that he needed to make convincing as a stand-in for the complex and constantly shifting accumulation of diverse commercial events that made up his audience’s daily trade practices.
