Abstract

Summary

Galen provides us with extensive though strongly biased information about his treatment of patients. He does so both in narrative case studies and in theoretical discussions of the principles and methods of therapeutics. He conceives of therapeutics as a comprehensive system connecting all domains of the medical art. His ideal doctor needs to have a firm command of all these domains, including a thorough grasp of epistemology and scientific methodology. At the same time, Galen is aware of the limitations of these principles in medical practice, and he stresses the uniqueness of each patient. His therapeutics also includes the promotion of health and the care of the soul.
