Hippocrates, said to have been born in Cos in or before 460 BCE, learned medicine and philosophy; travelled widely as a medical doctor and teacher; was consulted by King Perdiccas of Macedon and Artaxerxes of Persia; and died perhaps at Larissa.

Apparently he rejected superstition in favour of inductive reasoning and the study of real medicine as subject to natural laws, in general, and in individual people as patients for treatment by medicines and surgery.
