Galen (AD 129-99), researcher and scholar, surgeon and philosopher, logician, herbalist and personal physician to the emperor Marcus Aurelius, was the most influential and multi-faceted medical author of antiquity. This is the first major selection in English of Galen's work, functioning as an essential introduction to his "medical philosophy" and including the first-ever translations of several major works. A detailed Introduction presents a vivid insight into medical practice as well as intellectual and everyday life in ancient Rome.

A translation of Galen's Hygiene (De sanitate tuenda) by Galen ( Book )
83 editions published between 1176 and 2002 in 8 languages and held by 410 libraries worldwide
"The reader who after having studied a Hippocratic treatise turns to Galen, Hippocrates' greatest admirer and follower, feels rather bewildered. He misses the clarity and simplicity of the Hippocratic writer, his straightforward way of putting things, and finds Galen verbose, quibbling, hairsplitting at times. However, he should not let himself be discouraged, should keep reading and he will soon discover that Galen was a very great physician who has a great deal to say. Times had changed since the days of Hippocrates; almost six centuries had elapsed, generations of sophists had systematized knowledge and taught the art of disputation, and gone were the days of the democratic city states of ancient Greece. Galen wrote most of his books in imperial Rome, in the whirl of a metropolis that was the capital of the entire Western world. Galen's Hygiene is a real mine of information. It shows how highly developed and sophisticated personal hygiene had become since the days of Hippocrates and Diocles. It was not a hygiene for the masses, for the common people but was addressed to a small upper class, was written "for Greeks and for those who, though born barbarians by nature, yet emulate the culture of the Greeks." The Romans of noble birth in the second century A.D. were no longer the Romans of early republican days who were not afraid to handle the plough and take the sword in hand. They were landowners, politicians, administrators who lived in close connection with the imperial court. They were deeply imbued with Greek culture and had the leisure to devote much attention to their physical wellbeing. They had the time and the means to follow the precepts of Galen's hygiene"--Introduction. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved).
On the properties of foodstuffs = De alimentorum facultatibus by Galen ( Book )
35 editions published between 1530 and 2003 in 7 languages and held by 375 libraries worldwide
"This book presents a translation of and detailed commentary on Galen's De alimentorum facultatibus, his major work on the dynamics and kinetics of various foods. It is thus primarily a physiological treatise rather than a materia medica or a work on pathology. Galen commences with short section on the epistemology of medicine, with a discussion on the attainment, through apodeixis, or demonstration, of scientific truth - a discussion which reveals the Aristotelian roots of his thinking. The text then covers a wide range of foods, both common and exotic. Some, such as cereals, legumes, diary products and the grape, receive an emphasis that reflects their importance at the time; others are treated more cursorily. Dr. Powell, a retired physician, discusses Galen's terminology and the background to his views on physiology and pathology in his introduction, while John Wilkins's foreword concentrates on the structural and cultural aspects of the work."--Jacket.

Galen : on food and diet by Galen ( Book )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 344 libraries worldwide
"At the apogee of ancient medical advances stood Galen (AD 129-c. AD 210), once the personal physician to the emperor Marcus Aurelius. A prolific writer, among his surviving works is what he believed to be the definitive guide to a healthy diet, based on the theory of the four humours. In these treatises Galen sets out this theory, which was to be profoundly influential on medicine for many centuries, and describes in fascinating detail the effects on health of a vast range of foods, from lettuce, lard and fish to peaches, pickles and hyacinths." "Galen on Food and Diet makes all these texts available in English for the first time, and provides many captivating insights into the ancient understanding of food and health. With clear translations, supported by a lucid introduction, notes, and an extensive bibliography, this volume is an invaluable resource for classicists, ancient historians and all those interested in the history of food."--Jacket.
