This volume takes its inspiration from a lively one-day symposium held in May 1992 at the Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine, London.
After many years during which the Enlightenment was widely viewed as a lost era or as an arid desert in medical history, today's historians are now becoming conscious, almost for the first time, of the multi-faceted role that medical thinking played in the eighteenth-century processes of criticism and modernisation. This volume should contribute to the revaluation of Enlightenment medicine.
The book includes 15 papers covering Great Britain, France, Germany and other parts of Europe and is part of the Wellcome Institute Series in the History of Medicine
