Introduction to Medical Ethnobotany and Traditional Medicine (Athens)
The science of ethnobotany presents a window into the interaction between humans, plants, and culture. As amateur ethnobotanists, learn how to interpret traditional knowledge related to questions such as: Where do medicines come from? What makes a plant medicinally potent? And is it only about the plant's properties, or is there more to the story? As we consider the differences between traditional and western medicine from an ethnobotanical perspective, we begin to travel deeper into the history, meanings, and culture of wellness.
