Blood, sweat, and tears : the changing concepts of physiology from antiquity into early modern Europe

edited by Manfred Horstmanshoff, Helen King and Claus Zittel

The history of anatomy has been the subject of much recent scholarship. This volume shifts the focus to the many different ways in which the function of the body and its fluids were understood in pre-modern European thought. Contributors demonstrate how different academic disciplines can contribute to our understanding of 'physiology', and investigate the value of this category to pre-modern medicine. The book contains individual essays on the wider issues raised by 'physiology', and detailed case studies that explore particular aspects and individuals. It will be useful to those working on medicine and the body in pre-modern cultures, in disciplines including classics, history of medicine and science, philosophy, and literature.
