Abstract:   (4672 Views)
Giasaddin Mansour Dashtaki Shirazi was a prominent scholar and philosopher in the post-Islamic Iran. Among the fields he was proficient and knowledgeable in, the least attention has been paid to him as an influential figure in medicine, and this has in turn led to his expertise in other sciences to be neglected as well. Among Dashtaki’s works two are on medicine, and there are also historic accounts of his hygiene behavior and adherence to medical recommendations. These are indicative of Dashtaki being an outstanding figure in medicine in spite of his involvement in other scientific and administrative endeavors. The present paper will employ a descriptive-analytical approach to investigate his influence on medicine and his medical treatise Ma’alem-o-Shafa. Based on the findings of this study, any research on the Iranian or Islamic medicine of the 10th century H.Q. would be incomplete without studying Dashtaki and Ma’alem-o-Shafa. It is therefore recommended that Ma’alem-o-Shafa be translated and published so that it can be used in research of this type.
