Description from the publisher:

The traditional concept of medicine, as presented here, differs profoundly from the view held in the modern world because in the traditional view, the spacesmeridians, channelswithin the body and what flows through them are of more significance in causing illness than the shapes or organs. That is, the emphasis is on that which flows thorugh the channels as the place of the soul. The Canon is the clear and ordered Summa of all the medical knowlege of Ibn Sina's time, augmented from his own observations. Volume 1 (of 5 volumes) translated here was the best medical textbook available in Europe in its Latin translation for 700 years. With notes from St. Thomas Aquinas who said: Anything Avicenna says is true, it presents traditional medicine at its best and is far more accessible than the works of Hippocrates and Galen.

Avicenna (980-1037 CE) was known as the Prince of Physicians in the Persian empire of his time. In 1012 he began writing this, his great medical text. He lived for fifteen years in Isfahan and died in Hamadan.
