Translated by W.H.S. Jones

Hippocrates, often referred to as the ‘Father of Western Medicine’, is credited with being the first healer to separate the discipline of medicine from religion, arguing that disease was not a punishment inflicted by the gods, but rather the product of environmental factors, diet, and lifestyle.
Aphorisms, the best known work in the whole Hippocratic Corpus, is a series of propositions concerning the symptoms and diagnosis of disease and medicine, and the art of healing. It is believed Hippocrates composed it in his old age as a summary of his vast experience.
