Pubblicità

Galeno di Pergamo è stato un medico greco antico, i cui punti di vista hanno dominato la medicina occidentale per tredici secoli, fino al Rinascimento, quando si cominciò lentamente e con grande cautela a metterli in discussione, per esempio dall'opera di Vesalio. Dal suo nome deriva la Galenica, arte di preparare i farmaci dal Farmacista in Farmacia.

Frasi Galeno

„The best physician is also a philosopher.“

—  Galén
Title of a treatise; cited from Judith Perkins The Suffering Self (London: Routledge, 1995) p. 154.

„For truly on countless occasions throughout my life I have had this experience; persons for a time talk pleasantly with me because of my work among the sick, in which they think me very well trained, but when they learn later on that I am also trained in mathematics, they avoid me for the most part and are no longer at all glad to be with me.“

—  Galén
Context: A god, as I have said, commanded me to tell the first use also, and he himself knows that I have shrunk from its obscurity. He knows too that not only here but also in many other places in these commentaries, if it depended on me, I would omit demonstrations requiring astronomy, geometry, music, or any other logical discipline, lest my books should be held in utter detestation by physicians. For truly on countless occasions throughout my life I have had this experience; persons for a time talk pleasantly with me because of my work among the sick, in which they think me very well trained, but when they learn later on that I am also trained in mathematics, they avoid me for the most part and are no longer at all glad to be with me. Accordingly, I am always wary of touching on such subjects, and in this case it is only in obedience to the command of a divinity, as I have said, that I have used the theorems of geometry Galen.
