A classic study of medicine in antiquity, Ancient Medicine brings together much of Ludwig Edelstein's most important work on a subject that occupied him throughout a distinguished career. Included is his widely known translation of and commentary on the Hippocratic Oath, as well as his other writings on the oath which demonstrate how atypical it is of Greek medical thought. The book also explores the influence of empiricism and skepticism on Greek and Roman medicine, the practice of anatomy and dietetics in antiquity, and the relation of ancient medicine to ancient philosophy.
