📙 Greek Rational Medicine. Philosophy and Medicine from Alcmaeon to the Alexandrians by James Longrigg — free pdf


The Greeks were the first to develop rational systems of medicine almost entirely free of magical and religious elements and based upon natural causes. The importance of this revolutionary innovation for the subsequent history of medicine cannot be stressed enough. Drawing upon the latest material discoveries and scholarship, James Longrigg describes the origin and development of rational medicine in ancient Greece and examines its complex relationship with philosophy down to the 3rd century B.C. Greek Rational Medicine examines the important relationship between philosophy and medicine in ancient Greece and beyond, revealing its significance for contemporary Western practice and theory.
