Description

Why did ancient patients seek medical care from exorcists? Why did Hippocrates believe that a woman's uterus could move around her body? Why did ancient kings allow doctors to dissect the bodies of living criminals? These are some of the questions that this course will answer while covering more than two thousand years of medical history. In learning how to analyze works by Hippocrates and other medical writers from Greece, Rome, and the Middle East, students will discover that modern debates about bio-ethics, mental illness, gender and racial biases in healthcare, and the role of 'alternative' therapies have their roots in antiquity.
