Summary This volume takes the approach that medicine is a social phenomenon with a biological basis and an intellectual content. While diseases, societies, and ideas can change independently of one another or concurrently, the conjuncture of the three is at the heart of medical practice. The essays included in this book explore the relationships between medicine and the society and time in which it was practiced.
