Volume II details the development of medicine among the early Indo-European peoples--Greeks, Indians, and Persians. The Indo-Europeans were the first to use empirical knowledge to develop philosophical systems of medicine which looked beyond the sick man for universal laws. This volume examines the Greek rational systems which are the foundations of modern science, and the similar Near Eastern approaches, which had an additional mystic component better suited for handling mental and spiritual problems.
