    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    In his work De locis affectis (On the Body Parts Affected by Disease), Galen of Pergamon develops a method for detecting a diseased body part even while inside the body and, therefore, in the absence of imaging techniques not directly visible to the physician of antiquity. According to this method, indicators such as impaired activity, excretions, and pain are used as evidence to locate the affected part of the body.  Such an approach is to be closely linked with the resultant therapy, as Galen explains using several examples.


    This volume offers the first critical edition of this important Galenic work on diagnostics and is based upon all known Greek textual witnesses. It presents a full German translation accompanied by a detailed commentary and extensive indices.
