Product Overview

With MD, PhD, and MS (in astronomy) degrees, Garber is as much a polymath as his predecessors. He traces the philosophical roots of modern medicine from the ancient Greeks to the paradigms of medieval theory and practice, with a particular focus on the cosmological harmonies believed to exist between medicine and astronomy/astrology and music (e.g., per Pythagorus). The author also examines the historical and psychological reasons why belief in such systems of medicine as Galen''s four humors persisted for millennia despite advances in the field.
