The wide-ranging content of Places in Man represents the entire Hippocratic Corpus: anatomy, physiology, pathology, medical ideology, clinical instruction, traditional love, gynaecology. Despite this wide and varied scope, the work is conceptually coherent and stylistically consistent. In this new edition of the Greek text with translation and commentary, the language and content of the work are studied in relation to other treatises of the Hippocratic Corpus, and to fragmentary early medical writings (both Presocratics and texts of Anonymus Londinensis). It is argued that while there are 'Koan' and 'Knidian' elements, a West Greek origin is probable; and that this may be the earliest work in the Corpus.
