The contributors cover a wide variety of themes, broadly grouped as: the epistemology, method and practice of medicine, Galen and pharmacological tradition, Galens pharmacological treatises and the transmission of pharmacological texts. Their papers shed a new light on this ancient therapeutic field and also help to understand Galens pharmacology in its relation to the entire body of its work and thought.
