Abstract [en]

Carl Linnaeus (1707-78) became one of Sweden's most famous scientists at the time not only by means of his scientific production but also for his ability to observe, register, categorize and evaluate the collected data. He had an obvious talent for teaching and to convince the world around of his findings and notions. His interest was mainly for botany but his achievements extended also to medicine and pharmaceutics.

The life and achievements of Carl Linnaeus are from several aspects interesting and never cease to fascinate. His great interest for nature science resisted the wish of his parents that he should study theology to become a clergyman.

The aim of this publication is to give a general view of the flow of events that have contributed to Linnaeus' course to his achievements in the field of medicine and pharmaceutics.
