Colloquium Hippocraticum

The XIIIth triennial Colloquium Hippocraticum will be held at the University of Texas at Austin August 11th-13th 2008.

Mon, August 11, 2008 | UT Austin; auditorium at Dell's Children Center

The objective of the conference is to bring together scholars and students of ancient medicine, science and philosophy to advance our understanding of the compass of the term “Hippocratic”. The term is used primarily to refer to the authors, texts, theories and practices of the Corpus Hippocraticum, which share a basic scientific outlook but which are notoriously polemical one with another. To date most research has focused on the disparities between treatises and polemical relationships between authors.
