Biografie (woord)

Chiara Thumiger is a Wellcome Trust Medical Humanities Fellow in the Department of Classics and Ancient History at the University of Warwick and a Gastwissenschaftlerin in the Department of Classical Philology at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Her research focuses on ancient medical approaches to mental health in dialogue with literary sources and modern debates. She is the author of Hidden Paths: Notions of Self, Tragic Characterization and Euripides' Bacchae (2007) and co-editor of Eros in Ancient Greece (with C. Carey, N. Lowe and E. Sanders, 2013) and Homo Patiens: Approaches to the Patient in the Ancient World (with G. Petridou, 2015).


'This book makes an important contribution to the study of mental disorder in antiquity. Thumiger's thorough survey of relevant material offers an invaluable resource for the researcher, and her historiographical introduction is outstanding in its detail and clarity. The methodological remarks in the opening chapter offer a careful account of the role of medical anthropology in the history of medicine in antiquity. There is little doubt that this book will become a standard in the study of mental disorder in ancient medical and non-medical texts.' Jessica Wright, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
