9780674991644: Hippocrates, Volume II: Prognostic (Loeb Classical Library, No. 148)

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'.

The works available in the Loeb Classical Library edition of Hippocrates are the following. Volume I: Ancient Medicine. Airs, Waters, Places. Epidemics 1 and 3. The Oath. Precepts. Nutriment. Volume II: Prognostic. Regimen 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 2 and 4–7. Volume VIII: Places in Man. Glands. Fleshes. Prorrhetic I–II. Physician. Use of Liquids. Ulcers. Haemorrhoids and Fistulas. Volume IV also contains the fragments of Heracleitus, On the Universe.

About the Author:

Paul Potter's earlier volumes in the Hippocrates edition were widely praised for their "excellent--that is, accurate and readable--translations" (in the words of the "Bulletin of the History of Medicine"). He is Professor of the History of Medicine, University of Western Ontario.

Review:

Paul Potter...has brought to his task his considerable philological skills. He has done much more than produce excellent--that is, accurate and readable-- translations. Not only has he engaged in extensive study of the manuscript traditions of all six treatises...but he has also examined and collated the available extant manuscripts of the other three treatises, thus producing a critical text for each. (Darrel W. Amundsen Bulletin of Historical Medicine)

Descrizione libro HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS, United States, 1923. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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 eighth volume of the ongoing Loeb edition of these invaluable texts, Paul Potter presents ten treatises that offer an illuminating overview of Hippocratic medicine. Three theoretical works - Places in Man, General Nature of Glands, and Fleshes - expound particular theories of anatomy and physiology and then elaborate on how disease and healing occur in the systems depicted. Prorrhetic 1 and 2 and Physician deal with symptoms and prognosis and with other aspects of the physician-patient relationship. And four practical manuals - Use of Liquids, Ulcers, Fistulas, and Haemorrhoids - give specific instruction for treatments. Thus from the writings in this volume we gain insight into the Hippocratic physician s understanding of the body, his approach to his patient, and his methods for dealing with a variety of disorders.
