Teorie metodiche della salute tra Asclepiade e Giuliano

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This paper, through the analysis of some passages by Galen, reconstructs the theory of health worked out by the Methodist school of medicine, also highlighting the considerable differences between them: from the definition of health as symmetria ton poron that Galen attributes to Asclepiades and Thessalus to the introduction of the concept of metasynkrisis by Themison, from Olympicus' theory which identifies health with eustatheia of actions to the return to the traditional concept of symmetria in Julian, one of the latest Methodists.
