In the Grip of Disease by G. E. R. Lloyd

Book Description

This original and lively book explores Greek ideas about health and disease and their influence on Greek thought. Fundamental issues such as causation and responsibility, purification and pollution, mind-body relations and gender differences, authority and the expert and who can challenge them, reality and appearances, good government, happiness, and good and evil themselves are deeply implicated. Using the evidence not just from Greek medical theory and practice but also from epic, lyric, tragedy, historiography, philosophy, and religion, G. E. R. Lloyd offers the first comprehensive account of the influence of Greek thought about health and disease on the Greek imagination.

Books By Author G. E. R. Lloyd

Ideals of Inquiry by G. E. R. Lloyd Ideals of Inquiry, Paperback (July 2016)

Long before science as we know it existed, sophisticated studies of the physical world were undertaken-in Mesopotamia, India, China, and Greece. G. E. R. Lloyd explores the methods, subject-matter, and aims of those studies. He illuminates the origins of human intellectual inquiry, finding similarities and differences across cultures.

Analogical Investigations by G. E. R. Lloyd Analogical Investigations, Hardback (September 2015)

Penetrating cross-cultural analysis of alternative models of human reasoning. Uses examples from ancient Greek and Chinese thought and recent ethnography.

Being, Humanity, and Understanding by G. E. R. Lloyd Being, Humanity, and Understanding, Paperback (July 2014)

G. E. R. Lloyd explores the amazing diversity of views that humans have held on being, humanity, and understanding. In a cross-cultural study that ranges from ancient to modern times, he asks how far we are bound by the conceptual systems to which we belong, and explores topics such as ontology, morality, philosophy of language, and communication.

Disciplines in the Making by G. E. R. Lloyd Disciplines in the Making, Paperback (September 2011)

We tend to assume that our map of the intellectual disciplines is valid cross-culturally. G. E. R. Lloyd challenges this in relation to eight main areas of human endeavour, namely philosophy, mathematics, history, medicine, art, law, religion, and science, by examining how the disciplines were conceived and developed in different times and places.
