The present article analyzes the letters exchanged by Caspar Hofmann and William Harvey in 1636 and the delineation of the main questions and answers on the blood circulation theory. The first part of the article presents concepts about blood circulation according to the time's physiology; the second part presents the changes introduced by Harvey; the third and last part presents the debate between Hofmann and Harvey.

The Significance of the Demonstration of the Harveyan Circulation by Experimental Tests
HY was the discovery of the circulation of the blood completed by an English physician and why was it deferred until the seventeenth century?" This cogent question was asked by SARTON (1937), p. 21,
Reform and the languages of renaissance theoretical medicine: Harvey versus fernel
  • J. J. Bono

TLDR
William Harvey's analysis results in an overt, if somewhat speculative and incomplete, theory of living matter that complements his noted insistence on the primacy and inherent vitality of the blood.
William Harvey and the Pulmonary Circulation
TLDR
It can be said with some assurance that neither the overthrow of Galen's teaching on the motions of the blood in the heart and lungs nor the establishment of the pulmonary circulation was a decisive element in Harvey's achievement.

TLDR
The true historian would in this way aim at removing Harvey from the Victorian pedestal of the 'modern view' and replace him in the seventeenth century and its appropriate spiritual climate.

The current view of Harvey and the problem of the capillaries is illustrated by the following quotations.

TLDR
This paper will argue against both Whitteridge and Bylebyl that chapters 9 to 14 of De motu cordis should be seen in terms of an anatomical demonstration rather than a demonstrative proof and provide an entree into Harvey's general methodology qua anatomist and help to rescue it from an anachronism.
William Harvey and the Purpose of Circulation
TLDR
In later life his work lay mostly outside the field of protozoology; but these researches into the microphysics and microchemistry of "living matter," and other "structures," led to fundamental discoveries in the domains of colloid chemistry and physics.

TLDR
When the relevant texts are viewed in historical context, the relationship between William Harvey and Robert Fludd becomes far less difficult to understand.
William Harvey's use of Quantitative Method *
TLDR
Historically, it is clear that the importance of Harvey's work was his hypothesis of the circulation; his observations on the motion of the heart and blood, while important, have had less subsequent effect on physiology than his concept.
