      >In reading Gregory of Nyssa's "De opificio hominis" I am impressed by the last chapter where he does not stop at telling us that the organism is some kind of perfect system, he also tries to show in detail how all the organs depend on each other; which one is doing which job.
      >Gregory is after all no neoplatonist, at least according to my standarts. But are there any neoplatonists who bothered with such detailled biological accounts? Or is this to close to the dirty matter for them?
      >And another very special question, way off topic for any neoplatonist, but someone of you learned people in ancient texts might still know it: is Gregory's detailled account due to some known ancient specialist on the topic like Galen of example?
