About this item

In October 2014, historians of medicine gathered in Berlin for an international conference on mental illness during antiquity, and most of the 14 papers here are from that event. The major themes are broader reflections on mental illness: medical theories in their socio-intellectual context, individual authors and themes, and philosophy and mental illness. Among the topics are between insanity and wisdom: perceptions of melancholy in the pseudo-Hippocratic Letters 10-17, mental disorders and psychological suffering in Galen's cases, satyriasis and sexual disorders in ancient medicine, making the distinction: the Stoic view of mental illness, and whether philosophical psychological therapy had any impact on medical practice.
