Product Details

Hippocrates, who was born in 460 BCE and lived during the Golden Age of Greece, is known as the Father of Modern Medicine. He is responsible for changing the way that ancient Greeks thought about medicine. No longer were illnesses seen as punishments from the gods or the result of superstition. Hippocrates' method of treating illnesses was based on observation. His ideas that the parts of the body functioned as a whole in sickness and in health were an important foundation for modern medicine. Even today, new doctors take a Hippocratic Oath based on Hippocrates' work and philosophy. Hippocrates' life included both the gods of ancient Greece and the ideas that helped start modern science. Even thousands of years after his death, he is still remembered for his important contributions to medicine.
