9780842526647: Medical Aphorisms: Treatises 6-9 (Medical Works of Moses Maimonides)

Maimonides, one of the most celebrated rabbis in the history of Judaism, was a prolific author of influential Arabic philosophical and medical treatises as well as two of the most important works on Jewish law. Medical Aphorisms is the best-known and most comprehensive of his medical works, and Gerrit Bos offers here a masterful English translation with detailed annotations. Medical Aphorisms consists of approximately 1,500 maxims compiled by Maimonides from the treatises of Galen, the renowned ancient Greek physician. Maimonides arranges the aphorisms into twenty-five treatises, organizing them by traditional medieval subspecialties such as gynecology, hygiene, and diet. He also includes a section examining unusual cases from Galen and offers a critical analysis of Galen’s theories. The second of six volumes, Medical Aphorisms: Treatises 6-9 provides tantalizing insights into the work of Galen and the world of medieval medicine. It will be a rich and valuable resource for students and scholars working in the history of medicine, Jewish studies, and medieval Arabic culture.

Review:

A user-friendly product which . . . makes the results of this field of study accessible to the wider academic community of medievalists. . . . A very important document of medieval intellectual history and a critical  edition of the original Arabic has been a desideratum for a long time. Garrit Bos' edition and Englilsh translation of Treatises 6-9  meets the highest standards of scholarship." (Tamas Visi Medieval Review)

"The two volumes of commentary now extant confirm Maimonides reputation as an astute clinician, scholar, and critic. Even in today's world of clinical science, many of his aphorisms are uncannily accurate and prescient. . . . There is much of value in these commentaries . . . for what they reveal of one of the greatest clinicians of antiquity, of what constituted clinical wisdom in his time and how much can be learned by close observation and creative reflection on matters medical." (Edmund Pellegrino Review of Metaphysics)
