When Professor Iuliu Hațieganu linked the field of medical science to consciousness, I think he was referring to human power, meaning the inner feeling through which one realizes the good or evil he can do. It is what we also call moral virtues, which have politeness as a starting point and love as a terminus. If virtue can be learned - and I believe it can be, it happens more through the power of example than from books. The humanistic tradition of the school he leads and the professional development of his students depend on the ethical qualities of the teacher. Science brings innovations, the school led by true masters receives them and makes them fruitful.
