From Hippocrates onward, the humoral theory was adopted by Greek, Roman and Persian physicians, and became the most commonly held view of the human body among European physicians until the advent of modern medical research in the nineteenth century. The four humors of Hippocratic medicine are black bile (Gk. melan chole), yellow bile (Gk. chole), phlegm (Gk. phlegma), and blood (Gk. haima), and each corresponds to one of the traditional four temperaments. A humor is also referred to as a cambium (pl. cambia or cambiums).[1] Four humors[edit] Paired qualities were associated with each humor and its season. History[edit] Origins[edit] Medicine[edit]

Theories[edit] Many theories exist about what humour is and what social function it serves. The benign-violation theory, endorsed by Peter McGraw, attempts to explain humour's existence. Others believe that 'the appropriate use of humour can facilitate social interactions'.[3] Views[edit] Some claim that humour should not be explained.
