Homo patiens : approaches to the patient in the ancient world( )

14 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Homo Patiens - Approaches to the Patient in the Ancient World is a book about the patients of the Graeco-Roman world, their role in the ancient medical encounters and their relationship to the health providers and medical practitioners of their time. This volume makes a strong claim for the relevance of a patient-centred approach to the history of ancient medicine. Attention to the experience of patients deepens our understanding of ancient societies and their medical markets, and enriches our knowledge of the history of indent cultures. It is a first step towards shaping a history of the ancient patient's view, which will be of use not only to ancient historians, students of medical humanities, and historians of medicine, but also to any reader interested in medical ethics
A history of the mind and mental health in classical Greek medical thought by Chiara Thumiger( Book )

12 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Hippocratic texts and other contemporary medical sources have often been overlooked in discussions of ancient psychology. They have been considered to be more mechanical and less detailed than poetic and philosophical representations, as well as later medical texts such as those of Galen. This book does justice to these early medical accounts by demonstrating their richness and sophistication, their many connections with other contemporary cultural products and the indebtedness of later medicine to their observations. In addition, it reads these sources not only as archaeological documents but also in the light of methodological discussions that are fundamental to the histories of psychiatry and psychology. As a result of this approach, the book will be important for scholars of these disciplines as well as those of Greek literature and philosophy, strongly advocating the relevance of ancient ideas to modern debates
Erôs in ancient Greece by Ed Sanders( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edited volume brings together eighteen articles which examine the role of erôs as an emotion in ancient Greek culture. Arising out of a conference held at University College London in 2009, the volume ranges from Archaic epic and lyric poetry, through tragedy and comedy, to philosophical and technical treatises and more, and includes contributions from a variety of international scholars well published in the field of ancient Greek emotions. Taking into account all important thinking about the nature of erôs from the eighth century BCE to the third century CE, and covering a very broad range of sources and theoretical approaches, both in the chronological and the generic sense, it considers the phenomenology, psychology, and physiology of erôs; its associated language, metaphors, and imagery; the overlap of erôs with other emotions (jealousy, madness, philia, pothos); its role in political society; and the relationship between the human emotion and Eros the god

Mental illness in ancient medicine : from Celsus to Paul of Aegina( Book )

11 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 'Mental Illness in Ancient Medicine: From Celsus to Paul of Aegina' a detailed account is given, by a range of experts in the field, of the development of different conceptualizations of the mind and its pathology by medical authors from the beginning of the imperial period to the seventh century CE. New analysis is offered, both of the dominant texts of Galen and of such important but neglected figures as Rufus, Archigenes, Athenaeus of Attalia, Aretaeus, Caelius Aurelianus and the Byzantine 'compilers'. The work of these authors is considered both in its medical-historical context and in relation to philosophical and theological debates - on ethics and on the nature of the soul - with which they interacted

3 The professional audiences of the Hippocratic Epidemics by Chiara Thumiger( )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To summarise our findings, the Hippocratic Epidemics case reports is an example of a text whose intended audiences, despite the ambiguities and historicaluncertainties about the texts? composition and transmission, were very firmlydelimited as professional and medical. Such closure defines this phase of ancientmedicine as particularly territorial and?technical?, on the one hand? no literarypretence, nor broader intellectual appeal of the kind shown by Galen is on thehorizon of these writers, nor any explicit attempt to win over lay audiences, atleast in the Epidemics. 77 Also, it tells us something about the epistemology anddidactics at work in the Hippocratic handling of patients, which we can summariseas follows: non-theoretical, observation-based and data-centred; self-standing, i.e. not relying on a system of knowledge or a?syllabus? (compare Galen?sfrequent recommendation on which of his books one should read first, which arefor beginners, what should follow, etc.), but needing to?support itself? by insuringthe memorisation of the repertoires of observations, procedures, risks andmistakes; lack of a synthesis of the empirical data, such as a form of diagnosis, or of the?epistemological extension? that might turn the observed case into an?experiment?.78 The Hippocratic use of individual evidence? the patient case?remained in this early stage a communication of pure data. Individual memory, in conclusion, the reception of an individual intellect? a future student, a trainingdoctor? characterises the audience of these texts, motivates and even determines, concretely, their very existence
