The uncertainty of medicine: Galen on the notion of techne stochastike

Risultato della ricerca: Article

Abstract

In this article we try to show the Galen’s perspective on the epistemological status ofmedicine, in particular starting from the conceptual category of τέχνη στοχαστική.Even though the qualification of τέχνη στοχαστική attributed to medicine does nothave an explicitly negative connotation in Galen’s Corpus, it does occupy asubordinate position compared with the solidity furnished by the more geometricomethod, and is almost a necessary evil that Galen introduces to justify that fallibilityof medicine, which at the same time he himself tries in every way to minimize.
