in English and held by 1,019 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hippocrates, said to have been born in Cos in or before 460 BCE, learned medicine and philosophy; travelled widely as a medical doctor and teacher; was consulted by King Perdiccas of Macedon and Artaxerxes of Persia; and died perhaps at Larissa. Apparently he rejected superstition in favour of inductive reasoning and the study of real medicine as subject to natural laws, in general and in individual people as patients for treatment by medicines and surgery. Of the roughly 70 works in the Hippocratic Collection," many are not by Hippocrates; even the famous oath may not be his. But he was undeniably the "Father of Medicine."

Hippocrates by Jacques Jouanna( Book )

in English and French and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hippocrates, considered for more than two thousand years the father of medicine, came over time to be credited with a life of mythic proportions and an enormous body of work. In view of Hippocrates' exceptional importance in the history of medicine, it may seem surprising that our knowledge of the life and career of this fifth century B.C. Greek physician should be so incomplete." "Jacques Jouanna contends that a great deal can be concluded about the life and works of Hippocrates. Published to both critical and popular acclaim in France in 1992, Hippocrates reveals a man who was not only the greatest of the ancient physicians but also a philosopher of unrecognized ability and consequence who influenced both Plato and Aristotle; a historian who was the equal of Herodotus and Thucydides as a writer and superior to them in his powers of observation and analysis; and a master of tragical narrative who bears comparison with Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides, the great playwrights of the classical period."--Jacket

The medical treatises collected under Hippocrates' name are essential sources of information about the practice of medicine in antiquity and about Greek Theories concerning the human body. In this seventh volume of the ongoing Loeb edition of the Hippocratic Collection, Wesley Smith presents the first modern English translation of Books 2 and 4-7 of the Epidemics (the other two books are already available in the first volume). In the casebooks and notes that make up the seven books called Epidemics---the title originally meant 'visits'---we can watch ancient physicians observing patients, noting and pondering symptoms, evaluating treatments, and developing theories about the body. They appear to be physicians' notebooks from several areas of the Aegean basin. Hippocratic medicine remained the basis of medical practice until the eighteenth century of our era, and the Epidemics long served as textbooks as well as historical records. Smith supplements his clear translation with explanatory notes. Wesley D. Smith is Professor of Clasical Studies, University of Pennsylvania. The works available in the Loeb edition of Hippocrates are the following. Volume I: Ancient Medicine. Airs, Waters, Places. Epidemics 1 and 3. The Oath. Precepts. Nutriment. Volume II: Prognostic. Regimine in Acute Diseases. The Sacred Disease. The Art. Breaths. Law. Decorum. Physician (Ch. 1). Dentition. Volume III: On Wounds in the Head. In the Surgery. On Fractures. On Joints. Mochlicon. Volume IV: Nature of Man. Regimen in Health. Humours. Aphorisms. Regimen 1-3. Dreams. Volume V: Affections. Diseases 1-2. Volume VI: Diseases 3. Internal Affections. Regimen in Acute Diseases. Volume VII: Epidemics 1 and 4-7. Volume IV also contains the fragments of Heracleitus, On the Universe
