 Hippocratic Corpus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Hippocratic Corpus is a library, or rather, the remains of a library.
Although the island home Cos of Hippocrates is located within what was a Doric speaking region, the medical writers of Cos who developed the Hippocratic treatises appropriated the dialect of philosophy, that is Ionic Greek.
The use of Ionic instead of the native Doric dialect is analogous to the practice of Renaissance scientists, such as Andreas Vesalius, using Latin instead of the vernacular for their treatises.

Physicians who followed the Hippocratic method attributed chronic disease to the imbalance of one of four humors in the body.(4) The text The Nature of Man discusses these humors--blood, yellow bile, fl bile, and phlegm-- and the necessity of balancing them to maintain health.
The Hippocratic physician could not see the inner machinery of the body on a regular basis, and even if he could poke around the chest cavity of a patient for some time, he had no knowledge of physiology.(15) The physician had to infer from the outside world what might be happening inside the human body.
One of the most interesting cases is that of the boy who was kicked in the head by a horse.(25) The physician would first examine the wound with a metal probe; a sanitary procedure if the probes were kept clean.

 The Hippocratic Humoural Theory
The Hippocratic humoural theory of disease remains one of the most important, and often misunderstood concepts in the Hippocratic Corpus.
Some thinkers who were more influenced by Empedocles (whose interests included not only philosophy, but medicine as well) never modified the latter's original formulation, but simply retained the original *philosophical* idea of fire, air, water and earth as the fundamental components of the body with disease being an excess of one over the other(s).
Hippocratic physicians carefully observed the natural progression of disease in their patients and made inductive inferences from these observations.

Experimentation obviously played its role in the Hippocratic view of medicine, because the individual approach to disease as exemplified in the case histories of EPIDEMICS I, though basic and undeveloped, is nothing more than experimentation.
Ludwig Edelstein commented in his important work on the oath (THE HIPPOCRATIC OATH, 1943) that the high morality and ethics of this document were not true of the 5th century B.C. but were the result of the infusion of philosophical precepts (mainly Pythagorean) of the end of the 4th century B.C. and later.

 Perspectives on the Professions
Veneration for the Hippocratic "corpus" (the collected works of Hippocrates and his followers) was part of the Renaissance rediscovery of classical texts.
In 1525 and 1526, authoritative Latin and Greek versions of the Hippocratic corpus were published, and academic medical institutions began to teach Hippocratic moral precepts, in particular the oath, thereby cementing the identification of medical professionalism with fiduciary obligations to the sick.
In medicine, therefore, being a member of a "liberal profession", that is, a profession that demanded literacy and thus some form of education, was identified with the idea of taking on (by oath) moral obligations beyond those of an ordinary gentleman.

Despite the burgeoning of interest in these periods, modern scholarship has only recently begun to see Oribasius, Aetius of Amida, and other medical authors as part of the literary and intellectual culture of their times and to evaluate the role of medical ideas in the thought of Plotinus, Origen, and other non-medical figures.
In the Hippocratic Corpus, the gods get no more than their due; they ordered the nature of all things, as the author of Regimen I says, but in the art and practice of medicine they played only a small part.
The variety of authors and medical theories represented in the Hippocratic Corpus and the willingness of later writers to see in the Corpus foreshadowings of their own ideas make precise definition impossible; even so, when we read on p.
