Hippocrates (c.460-c.370 BC), Ancient Greek physician and philosopher. Hippocrates, who is considered the father of medicine, founded a medical school on the Aegean island of Kos. He had a rational approach, believing that disease was caused by physical phenomena, and not by the the gods. Artwork from the 19th century book Vies des Savants Illustres.
