Max Meyerhof and Heritage of Arab Islamic Medicine (in Arabic)

Auther : Ahmed Assiri

The present study will focus on the life and scientific achievement of prominent a German scholar in researching and disseminating Islamic medicine in the West. Max Meyerhof was a distinguished and well-known scholar not possible throughout his life (1874-1945). As an ophthalmologist and a history researcher, he wrote a great number of researches related to the achievements of Arab and Islamic medicine, particularly in the field of Arab ophthalmology in the Middle-Ages. 
As a result of the great history research about Islamic medicine in the Middle-Ages, Max Meyerhof along with other scholars are still remembered and cited in the West. Meyerhof lived for many years in Cairo and acquired Egyptian citizenship. Through he produced the vast majority of his research while living in Egypt, there is no single study Arabic devoted to the distinguished scientific work of this recognized scholar. To the best of my knowledge, there are only some indications of his role in the discovery and dissemination of some significant Islamic medicine manuscripts along with other important work.
To sum up, this study is intended to provide Arabic Language readers with a comprehensive biography Max Meyerhof showing his scientific efforts in researching the field of Islamic medicine in the Middle-Ages. Special focus will be given to his role in introducing Ibn Al-Nafiess original discovery of the bloods circulatory system.
