A study of Francesco Sambiasi's Lingyan lishao (1624), with Chinese text and Spanish translation.
"Lingyan lishao 靈言蠡勺 (Humble Attempt at Discussing Matters Pertaining to the Soul).... One of the most important themes taken from Aristotelianism was the question of the soul, as appears from several writings devoted to this subject. Francesco Sambiasi (1582-1649) and Xu Guangqi (1562-1633) presented the theory of Aristotle’s De Anima in Lingyan lishao 靈言蠡勺 (1624). Aleni gave a synopsis of this work, and of Parva Naturalia, in Xingxue cushu 性學觕述, written in 1624, but printed in its entirety only in early 1646 during the Longwu reign (Southern Ming) in Fujian." -- Cf. Standaert, Handbook of Christianity in China, vol. 1, p. 607. See also p. 445, 613, and: "...In accordance with the state of knowledge at the time, which viewed the soul as being closely associated with the nerves" (i.e. nervous system, medicine), p. 791.
