Research Seminar of the Russian Museum of the History of Medicine
Russian Museum of Medicine invites to a meeting of the regular seminar "Publish or Perish"
Vivian Nutton (London) will make a report "Rethinking renaissance medicine will suffice" at the seminar of the Russian Museum of Medicine on May 29 at 14:00.
Abstract: Despite numerous books and articles on individual topics, there has been no single book-length survey of Renaissance medicine in English for several decades. Prof. Nutton has begun this task, which will break new ground in many ways. The book attempts to answer a simple question: what distinguishes the medicine of the period 1490-1628 from the preceding and succeeding decades? This seminar will look at questions of periodization, a possible structure for the volume, and some general considerations that rarely appear in medical history accounts. The book will also include material on medical life East of the Rhine.
