This book is a republication of a series of papers advocating accuracy according to the genius of the Greek language in the formation of medical terms from the Greek. To attain this end Rose insists that we can not ignore the work in nomenclature by modern Greek physicians, among whom are to be found, he says, excellent philologists, versed in both the ancient and the modern Greek. The book contains chapters, among other things, on "Greek as the International Language of Physicians and Scholars in General," "Greek in Medicine." "A Conspiracy to Suppress the Truth About Living Greek." "Memorial on the Anatomic Nomenclature of the Anatomic Society," by Dr. Hermann Triepel; "Scientific Medical Nomenclature," by Dr. Herbert Kruger, and a "Guide to the Learning of Modern Greek" for those who know classical Greek, also by Dr. Kruger.
