Institutio logica; English translation, introduction, and commentary [by] John Spangler Kieffer by Galen( Book )

80 editions published between 1844 and 1985 in 9 languages and held by 886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Překlad spisu starověkého lékaře (2. stol. n.l.), který se zabýval také filosofií, především logikou. Toto dílo je vedle spisů Aristotelových jediným dochovaným antickým spisem o logice. Český překlad byl pořízen podle vydání K. Kalbfleische (Institutio logice) z roku 1895. V devatenácti kapitolách pojednává autor o některých gnoseologických problémech, o základních pojmech dedukce, o kategorických soudech, úsudcích, o vztahu mezi kategorickým sylogismem a stoickými úsudky apod. Galénova logika netkví v oblasti pojmové, nýbrž v oblasti výrokové a zčásti už v počátcích vztahové logiky

Galen : on food and diet by Galen( Book )

16 editions published in 2000 in English and Latin and held by 386 WorldCat member 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

If the work of Hippocrates be taken as representing the foundation upon which the edifice of historical Greek medicine was reared, then the work of GALEN, who lived some six hundred years later, may be looked upon as the summit of the same edifice. He was born in Pergamum A.D. 129, and both there and in other academic centres of the Aegean pursued his medical studies before being appointed physicial to the Pergamene gladiators in 157. Becoming dissatisfied with this type of practice he emigrated to Rome, where he soon won acknowledgement as the foremost medical authority of his time and where, with one brief interruption, he remained until his death in 199

Galen (Claudius Galenus, 129-c. 199 CE) is the most famous physician of the Greco-Roman world whose writings have survived. A Greek from a wealthy family, raised and educated in the Greek city of Pergamon, he acquired his medical education by travelling widely in the Roman world, visiting the famous medical centres and studying with leading doctors. His career took him to Rome, where he was appointed by the emperor Marcus Aurelius as his personal physician; he also served succeeding emperors in this role. A huge corpus of writings on medicine which bear Galen's name has survived. The task of editing and publishing such a corpus, and of identifying the authentic Galenic texts within it, is a hugely challenging one, and the 22-volume edition reissued here, edited by Karl Gottlob Kühn (1754-1840) and published in Leipzig between 1821 and 1833, has never yet been equalled.0
