Abstract

title SUMMARY /title The two letters presented here were sent by Pietro Moscati to the surgeon Giambattista Verna, who passed them on to Albrecht von Haller. By referring a polemic episode related to the discussion upon the insensibility of the dura mater, this edition gives account of a moment of the debate in Italy upon the vires insitae in a living body, redefined by Haller, and reconstructs continuity between Moscati's juvenile observations and his later pro-Hallerian choices.
