This book includes papers presented in Kiel in 1982 on Galen's chief therapeutic manual, the Methodus medendi. The papers describe the composition of the book, its surgical content, its emphasis on logic, and its fortuna in medieval Islam and Renaissance Europe. No such study in depth of a major Galenic work has hitherto been attempted.
