Physicians in ancient Greece believed four humours flowed within
the human body-blood, phlegm, black bile, and choler-determining a
person's health, mood, and character. Not until the seventeenth
century would a more complex view of the anatomy begin to emerge.
But by then humoural theory had already become deeply ingrained in
Western language and thought-and endures to this day in surprising
ways. Interweaving the histories of medicine, science, psychology,
and philosophy, Passions and Tempers explores the uncanny
persistence of these variable, invisible fluids. It will change how
we view our physical, mental, and emotional selves.
