Product description

Review

'The author combines erudition with a lively style in a book that should be read by anyone wishing to understand the history of medicine.' The Scientific and Medical Network Review

'Brilliant chapters discuss the theory of contagion after the Black Death, the impact of syphilis, and how the anatomical work of Vesalius and Harvey - together with the work of figures such as Galileo, Newton and Descartes - forced new attitudes on the profession.' British Medical Journal

'… well-written and interesting … As the final work in a long and illustrious career, Medicine before Science plays and important role in our understanding of medieval and early modern medical beliefs and practices.' History

Book Description

This book offers an introduction to the history of university-trained physicians from the middle ages to the eighteenth-century Enlightenment. While to modern eyes their theory and practice often seems bizarre, the historical evidence is they were judged by other criteria and helped to construct the expectations of society.
