Medical Ways of Writing: Differentiation and Transfer between Medicine and Literature (1600–1900)

Ausdifferenzierung und Transfer zwischen Medizin und Literatur (1600–1900)

Edited by: Nicolas Pethes and Sandra Richter
The volume examines the interrelationships between the history of medicine and literature from the 17th until the 19th centuries. The papers in the volume analyse these interrelationships using the styles of medical and literary texts, which show how the dimensions of knowledge and of representation determine each other– for example in the case of narrative structures in medical case histories or a diagnostic narrative stance in a novel.

Rezensionen

"Der Band besticht durch die Konsequenz, in der diskurshistorisch die gemeinsame Entwicklung literarischer und medizinischer Diskurse vor allem als Resultat zunehmender Differenzierung der (Sprach-)Formen beschreibbar wird."Marie-Luise Wünsche in: Zeitschrift für Germanistik 3/2010
