P. N. Singer is a Wellcome Research Fellow in the Department of History, Classics and Archaeology at Birkbeck, University of London. His research centres on Graeco-Roman medicine, especially Galen; on the interface of philosophical and medical ideas; and especially on the history of conceptions of the mind, psychology and ethics. He published the first major collection of texts by Galen in English translation with Galen: Selected Works (1997) and edited Galen: Psychological Writings (Cambridge, 2014), the first volume of the series Cambridge Galen Translations. He is also co-editor of a major study of conceptions of mental illness in the Graeco-Roman world, Mental Illness in Ancient Medicine: From Celsus to Paul of Aegina, (with Chiara Thumiger, 2018), and author of a range of articles on ancient concepts of psychology, the emotions, health, disease classification, pharmacology and physiology, as well as on aspects of ancient drama and performance culture. Philip J. van der Eijk is Alexander von Humboldt Professor of Classics and History of Science at the Humboldt University Berlin. He has published on ancient medicine, philosophy and science, comparative literature and patristics. His main research interests are in Graeco-Roman ideas about mental and physical health and the mind-body relationship, in the history of knowledge transfer and in the forms and rhetorical features of scientific and philosophical writing. His books include Aristoteles: De Insomniis & De Divinatione Per Somnum (1994), Ancient Histories of Medicine (1999, edited), Diocles of Carystus (2000), Medicine and Philosophy in Classical Antiquity (Cambridge, 2005), Philoponus on Aristotle on the Soul I (2005), Hippocrates in Context (2005, edited), Nemesius on the Nature of Man (2008, with R. W. Sharples) and Knowledge, Text and Practice in Ancient Technical Writing (Cambridge, 2017, edited with M. Formisano). He is General Editor of the series Cambridge Galen Translations.
