There is therefore every reason to study the Hippocratic writers in close connection with the many other medical thinkers that are known to have worked in the fifth and fourth centuries order 2.5 mg oxybutynin with mastercard medicine 91360, such as Diocles of Carystus, Praxagoras of Cos, or the twenty-plus medical writers mentioned in the Anonymus Londiniensis. Again, the realisation of their importance is a very recent scholarly development, partly as a result of new discoveries or fresh examinations of existing evidence;28 and although their works survive only in fragments, there is at least one respect in which these authors compare favourably to the Hippocratic Corpus. They provide an opportunity to form a picture of individual medical writers which we do not have in the case of the Hippocratic Corpus, where, because of the anonymity of the writings, it has become effectively impossible to appreciate the role of individual doctors in the formation of Greek medicine. By contrast, with people such as Diocles and Praxagoras, we have a considerable number of titles of works that they are reported to have authored as well as fragments reflecting a wide range of different areas of interest. And although for some of these works and areas our evidence is restricted to a few lines, it nevertheless gives us a good idea of the sheer scope and extent of their scientific interests and literary activity, which we simply cannot gain in the case of the writers of the Hippocratic Corpus. One such ‘non-Hippocratic’ medical author was Diocles of Carystus, whose importance in antiquity was rated so highly that he was given the 28 See van der Eijk (2000a) and (2001a); see also Manetti (1999a) and Orelli (1998). He practised in the fourth century bce, and although we know very little of his life, we can safely assume that he was one of the most promi- nent medical thinkers of antiquity. He clearly had a keen interest in ‘the phenomena’ and in the practical aspects of medical care, and he rated the results of long-term medical experience very highly. Yet at the same time Diocles was known for his theoretical and philosophical outlook and for his tendency to build his medical views on a general theory of nature. There are good reasons to be- lieve that he was well in touch with the medical and philosophical thinkers of his time, that he knew a number of the Hippocratic writings and that he was familiar with, and to, Aristotle and Theophrastus. Furthermore, he appears to have positioned himself prominently in the intellectual debates of the fourth century, and to have played a major role in the communica- tion of medical views and precepts to wider audiences in Greek society by means of highly civilised literary writings in the Attic dialect. The basis for his fame may lie partly in the impressive range of subjects he dealt with, the almost encyclopaedic coverage of the subject of medicine and allied sciences such as botany, biology, and possibly mineralogy and meteorology, the considerable size of his literary production and the stylistic elegance his work displayed. But a further possible reason may have been Diocles’ philo- sophical and theoretical orientation and his tendency to relate his medical views to more general theoretical views on nature (see frs.
