The Conspiracy Behind the Iconic Statue, the Venus de Milo

The Venus de Milo is one of art’s most widely recognized female forms. The Mona Lisa may be the first stop on many Louvre visitors’ agendas, but Venus, by virtue of being unclothed, sculptural, and prominently displayed, lends herself beautifully to all manner of souvenirs, both respectful and profane. Delacroix, Magritte, Dali, and The Simpsons have all paid tribute, ensuring her continued renown. Renoir is that rare bird who was impervious to her 6’7” charms, describing her a...

Ancient "medicine" once consisted of sacrificial offerings and divine petition. Disease was a supernatural infliction; health was a gift.Hippocrates invented medical science, and his theory of the humors and holistic health dominated Western medical thought for more than two thousand years.Today, medicine is much more disease centred, and perhaps something has been lost from the Hippocratic doctor-patient relationship. You're feeling sick — so sick you can barely walk — and so you visit a prof...
