AESCULAPIUS ESCULAPIUS CENTAUR CHIRON HUMANISM ART HUMANITIES MEDICINE HEALING ARTS


" ... the vine-wreathed hirsute head of Chiron, the divine Centaur of Greek mythology who tought Aesculapius art and medicine ...  I have heard the rushing gallop of his cloven hooves upon the marble floors of universities and medical schools ... in pain-filled rooms of clinics and hospitals ... in the hushed peace of libraries ... the divine Centaur, who, besides Medicine thought Aesculapius the love of man for man."

from the Introduction to " Cenetaur - Essays on the History of Medical Ideas" by Felix Marti-Ibanez, M.D.
