Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of names, terms and concepts that occur in the book Blood, Sweat and Tears: The Changing Concepts of Physiology from Antiquity into Early Modern Europe. The papers presented here are intended to help scholars in a range of disciplines to consider why it is so difficult to provide a history of physiology; how far is this due to changing notions of what physiology is, and how far does it depend on the methods by which physiology comes to its conclusions? Drawing on the methods of a wide range of academic disciplines, this book focuses on the history of the body, exploring the many different ways in which its physiology and its fluids were understood in pre-modern European thought.

Keywords: concepts of physiology; history of the body; pre-modern European thought
