Wikipedia, April 7, 2015 (Paracelsus; birth name: Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim; born 11 November or 17 December 1493; died 24 September 1541; Renaissance physician, botanist, alchemist, astrologer, and general occultist. He founded the discipline of toxicology. He is also known as a revolutionary for insisting upon using observations of nature, rather than looking to ancient texts, in open and radical defiance of medical practice of his day. He is also credited for giving zinc its name, calling it zincum. Modern psychology often also credits him for being the first to note that some diseases are rooted in psychological illness.)
