	Above section meets with HIST C380

C580 is a history of ancient medicine, from its beginnings in Mesopotamia to
Galen in the 2nd century A.D., and including ancient Chinese and Indian
medicine.  The approach of the course is to understand medicine within its
cultural context rather than to judge it in terms of modern biomedicine-to
investigate different conceptions of illness and healing and how the various
ancient cultures constructed illnesses.  No previous knowledge of ancient
history or medicine is expected.  Three paperbacks, course packet.  Two
midterms and final.
