The doctor and philosopher Galen of Pergamum (129-c.213 CE) may count as the father of western medicine, whose influence dominated European medical history until well into the 19th century. This project aims to explore Galen’s theory of human nature from a variety of relevant aspects: physiological, psychological, moral, philosophical and religious.
