"This book will...be of interest to scholars who work on the methodological disputes in an anciant medicine...Scholars interested in the understanding of Aristotle's place in the history of medicine and biology will also find much of value in this work."
"van der Eijk's initial work in this fledgling enterprise is everywhere on display in Medicine and Philosophy in Classical Antiquity. I recommend it heartily to students of ancient philosophy, ancient medicine, and Aristotle...I will be satisfied if I can convey van der Eijk's enthusiasm for a field rife with possibility and in need of serious scholarly efforts."
-Patrick Macfarlane, Xavier University, Ancient Philosophy
The development of medicine and philosophy in antiquity was closely connected. This collection of previously published essays, some of which have been specially translated into English, explores the topic in a wide-ranging and accessible fashion and will interest students of ancient medicine, ancient philosophy and the history of Western thought.
