The map shows a flat Earth centred on Greece and the Mediterranean Sea, surrounded by a 'River Ocean'. At night, the Sun passes from west to east behind a range of high mountains in the north ('region of the night'). To the south in North Africa, is the 'region of the day'. Other mythological references include the Elysian Fields, the island of the Cyclops, and the entrance to hell. Civilisations (historical and mythological) marked here include: Ethiopians, Libyans, Pygmies, Egyptians, Amazons, Phoenicians, Hyperboreans and Cimmerians.

Descartes' optics theory, 17th century

Descartes' optics theory, artwork. This is the eye diagram from Descartes' book Optics (1637). Three external points are shown depicted on the retina at the back of the eye. The light rays from these three points have been focused on the retina by the structures at the front of the eye, including the lens. The image formed on the retina is being observed by the homunculus at bottom - a human figure that is here being used to represent the unknown process by which the brain interprets a visual image. Artwork from Pioneers of Science (Oliver Lodge, 1893).
