Abstract: 

Upaniṣadic in origin, the Indian doctrine of five elements has played its role in the development of certain concepts in physical sciences, in particular, those pertaining to matter and medicine. The doctrine deserves to be reassessed in the history of scientific ideas, as it seems to be a forerunner of the theory of elements of the Greeks.
