Galeno de Pérgamo, en griego antiguo, Γαληνός, Galēnos; en latín, Claudius Galenus[1]​ , más conocido como Galeno, fue un médico griego. Sus puntos de vista dominaron la medicina europea a lo largo de más de mil años. Se le dio el nombre de Claudio en la Edad Media, pero esto parece ser un error historiográfico que se subsanó en la Edad Moderna.

Frases Galeno de Pérgamo

„The best physician is also a philosopher.“

—  Galén
Title of a treatise; cited from Judith Perkins The Suffering Self (London: Routledge, 1995) p. 154.

„For truly on countless occasions throughout my life I have had this experience; persons for a time talk pleasantly with me because of my work among the sick, in which they think me very well trained, but when they learn later on that I am also trained in mathematics, they avoid me for the most part and are no longer at all glad to be with me.“

—  Galén
Context: A god, as I have said, commanded me to tell the first use also, and he himself knows that I have shrunk from its obscurity. He knows too that not only here but also in many other places in these commentaries, if it depended on me, I would omit demonstrations requiring astronomy, geometry, music, or any other logical discipline, lest my books should be held in utter detestation by physicians. For truly on countless occasions throughout my life I have had this experience; persons for a time talk pleasantly with me because of my work among the sick, in which they think me very well trained, but when they learn later on that I am also trained in mathematics, they avoid me for the most part and are no longer at all glad to be with me. Accordingly, I am always wary of touching on such subjects, and in this case it is only in obedience to the command of a divinity, as I have said, that I have used the theorems of geometry Galen. Margaret Tallmadge May (trans.) On the Usefulness of the Parts of the Body, Ithaca, New York: Cornell U. Press, 1968. p. 502.
