Full text available as:


The idea of the mind was first systematically explored in ancient Greece. The main figures in this exploration were the early Presocratic philosophers, Plato, Artistotle, and the Hippocratic physicians. The key issues for them were the basic nature of the mind (i.e., what it is made of), and the various parts or functions it has. They also made some early discoveries about the relation between the mind and the brain.
