Caption

Hippocrates. Engraving of Classical Greek marble bust of the philosopher and physician Hippocrates (c.460-c.370 BC). Hippocrates is sometimes called the father of medicine. He was born and lived on the Greek island of Kos during the "Golden Age" of Classical Greece. His approach to medicine was rational, scientific, and clearly separated from religion. Hippocratic ideas included cleanliness, moderation in eating and drinking, and letting na- ture take its course. His code of ethical conduct forms the basis of the modern-day Hippocratic oath taken by doctors. Hippocrates is also credited with the discovery of the painkilling drug aspirin, which he found in willow tree bark.
