Abstract

Medicine has gone through many thought processes until it has arrived in our days. At the beginning, it was based on the religion, superstition and magic plants for therapy. This has been for many centuries until arrived a period of cultural development. This will happen in the Greek world and new theories about nature (physiokratia) and humans advance. From the various mythical traditions, we passed to understand the natural phenomena that surround the universe, thanks to the knowledge of the "hidden causes" by the philosophy.
