Abstract

The recognition of electromagnetic effects by and in humans must begin with man’s conscious perception of the light from the sun and other heavenly bodies, thunder-storms, geomagnetic fields and through magnetite (lodestone) to the navigators’ compass. Gilbert (1600) published his treatise, De Magnete, in which he included an account of the “medicinal virtues” of lodestone.
