| Anth. Gazis, a leading thinker, stemming from Milies of Pilion of Thessaly, as it can be seen in his work, had a sufficient knowledge of anatomy and physiology.
Specifically in the fifth chapter of the book "Grammar of philosophical sciences" by the British author Benjamin Martin (1704-1782), which Gazis translated and published in Greek, in 1799, he refers to the anatomy and physiology of the human body. Gazis inserts enough footnotes the content of which indicates that he was informed on the recent discoveries on anatomy and physiology. In parallel it can be seen that he followed up closely the scientific books and journals; this can be assumed from his references to pertinent books of anatomy and physiology.
From what it is known, for the first time in a Greek language book of the Neohellenic Enlightenment period, figures with the human body are inserted. Furthermore, the oxygen is mentioned as an indispensable element in respiration.
