Galenos von Pergamon, auch Aelius Galenus , war ein vorwiegend in Rom tätiger griechischer Arzt und Anatom. Der ihm in der Renaissance verliehene Vorname bzw. Gentilname Claudius beruht auf einer Fehldeutung der Abkürzung Cl. – für Clarissimus. Galen gilt nach Hippokrates als der bedeutendste Arzt des Altertums.

Zitate Galenos

„The best physician is also a philosopher.“

—  Galén
Title of a treatise; cited from Judith Perkins The Suffering Self (London: Routledge, 1995) p. 154.

„For truly on countless occasions throughout my life I have had this experience; persons for a time talk pleasantly with me because of my work among the sick, in which they think me very well trained, but when they learn later on that I am also trained in mathematics, they avoid me for the most part and are no longer at all glad to be with me.“

—  Galén
Context: A god, as I have said, commanded me to tell the first use also, and he himself knows that I have shrunk from its obscurity. He knows too that not only here but also in many other places in these commentaries, if it depended on me, I would omit demonstrations requiring astronomy, geometry, music, or any other logical discipline, lest my books should be held in utter detestation by physicians. For truly on countless occasions throughout my life I have had this experience; persons for a time talk pleasantly with me because of my work among the sick, in which they think me very well trained, but when they learn later on that I am also trained in mathematics, they avoid me for the most part and are no longer at all glad to be with me. Accordingly, I am always wary of touching on such subjects, and in this case it is only in obedience to the command of a divinity, as I have said, that I have used the theorems of geometry Galen.
