Abstract:
The ‘’Hippocratic Aphorisms’’ have exerted a singular influence over generations of physicians both in the east and in the west, it also impacted on medical practice, as the Aphorisms were so popular that both doctors and their patients knew them by heart. Hippocratic Aphorisms are divided into seven sections (fuṣūl, sg. faṣl in Arabic) containing between 25 (section one) to 87 aphorisms (section seven). The Arabic tradition is particularly rich, with more than a dozen commentaries extant in over a hundred manuscripts. These Arabic commentaries did not merely contain scholastic debates, but constituted venues for innovation and change.
