2 Natural explanations and Hippocrates
2.1 The most important example of Greek natrual thinking is the work of Hippocrates.
2.1.1 He developed the first widespread natural explanation for disease involving four humours in the body, which had to be balanced.
2.2 The four humours were also connected to the seasons when certain illnesses were more common.
2.3 Hippocrates believed in 'clinical observation', where the doctor has to watch the patient carefully in order to know what is wrong with them.
