Alex Dean HIST 108007 24 August 2016 Hippocratic Oath Religion was extremely important to the Greeks. They took their practices and beliefs very seriously. They also were deeply concerned with family ties and having good morals. Hippocrates seems to devote his life to learning more about science and medicine. He swears to the gods that he will try to the best of his ability to do the right thing. Hippocrates wants to dedicate his time to learning more into the world of science, technology and medicine. Religion was a big part of the Greeks’ practices though. Hippocrates stated "I swear by Apollo the healer, by Aesculapius, by Health and all the powers of healing, and call to witness all the gods and goddesses that I may keep this Oath and Promise to the best of my ability and judgement.” I think that it is possible that Hippocrates may be devoting so much time in learning and doing the right thing to impress the gods. He feels that it is his destiny to show them the good that he can do. As part of his religion, he does not agree with the idea of euthanasia. He states “I will not give a fatal draught to anyone if I am asked, nor will I suggest any such thing. Neither will I give a woman means to procure an abortion.” Euthanasia was large, political, argumentative topic. Although there are doctors that partake in that, Hippocrates plans to stay true to his religion and beliefs by not providing women with the option of abortion. He does not stray away from his judgement to please others. The Greeks were also very concerned with family ties. “I will pay the same respect to my master in the Science as to my parents and share my life with him and pay all my debts to him. I will regard his sons as my brothers and teach them the Science, if they desire to learn it, without fee or contract”. Hippocrates not only wants to further his education in science for himself, but to help the people around him learn more about it. He also talks about paying his gods and parents the same respect, which is a great honor. He wants to better himself and the Greek society as a whole. Hippocrates shows that he believes in having good morals. “I will use my power to help the sick to the best of my ability and judgement; I will abstain from harming or wronging any man by it.” Whether his ethics are spoken or unspoken, he swears to always do the right thing. He doesn’t want to abuse his power, but to share his education and put it to good use. “Whenever I go into a house, I will go to help the sick and never with the intention of doing harm or injury. I will not abuse my position to indulge in sexual contacts with the bodies of women or of men, whether they be freemen or slaves.” Doctors have always been expected to never have any sexual relationships with their patients. Hippocrates has no intentions but to help them. He also wants to create a safe net with his patients so his patients are able to trust and confide in him. By doing this, doctors are able to find out more about the patient which will help them better understand the patient. Hippocrates wants to stay true to his religion as well as helping his society. Religion was a major part of many Greeks’ lives. They respected their gods and turned to them when making life decisions. Hippocrates makes all of his promises to the gods when deciding to dedicate his life to science and medicine. He also says that he will pay the same respect to his gods that he will his parents, which shows that family is something important to the Greeks as well. The Greeks show they value morals and ethics. Hippocrates explains that he will devote his life to informing others of his learnings, always trying to do the right thing, and never taking advantage of the things in his life or the people.
