Description de l’éditeur
Hippocrates (460-370 B.C.) is one of the best known of the Ancient Greeks, and his Hippocratic Oath is still in use today. An ancient Greek physician of the Age of Pericles and the Golden Age of Athens, Hippocrates is considered one of the most outstanding figures in the history of medicine, known simply as the Father of Western medicine in recognition of his lasting contributions to the field as the founder of the Hippocratic School of medicine. This intellectual school revolutionized medicine in ancient Greece, establishing it as a discipline distinct from other fields that it had traditionally been associated with (notably theurgy and philosophy), thus establishing medicine as a profession.
Of the Epidemics is a collection of Hippocrates' teachings passed down about how to diagnose and treat certain ancient maladies. It is an invaluable source for understanding the medicine of antiquity. This edition of Hippocrates’ Of the Epidemics is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and pictures of Hippocrates.
