Averroès/Ibn Rushd (1126-1198), médecin, philosophe et théologien, est connu en Occident latin comme étant non seulement le grand commentateur d'Aristote (Commentaire au Traité de l'âme), mais aussi celui de Platon, Galien, al-Farabi, et Ibn Sina. Le commentaire d'Averroès qui fait l'objet de cette traduction est celui du Poème de la médecine d'Avicenne (980-1037) al-Urjuza fi al-tibb, Cantica ou Canticum dans sa version latine, considéré comme un abrégé ou aide-mémoire de son célèbre ouvrage Le Canon de la médecine/al-Qanun fi al-tibb. Averroès y apporte les éclaircissements nécessaires à la compréhension du texte ainsi que ses propres réflexions sur la médecine de l'époque. Cette traduction inédite permettra au lecteur francophone d'apprécier l'apport original d'Averroès en médecine.

Architecture de la santé et de la bienfaisance

Architecture de la santé et de la bienfaisance

Exposition


Du 16 décembre 2022 au 28 mars 2023 
Musée d'Orsay


Au XIXe siècle, les politiques publiques sociales émergent timidement et se conjuguent avec la générosité de philanthropes pour améliorer peu à peu les conditions matérielles de prise en charge des malades, des démunis et des accidentés du travail.

Cette fonction sociale s’exprime à travers des hôpitaux et bâtiments utilitaires nouveaux qui prennent en compte l’évolution des connaissances scientifiques sur l’hygiène ainsi que les innovations techniques et formelles dues au courant rationaliste. Plusieurs vagues de construction d’établissements de soins viennent prolonger l’impulsion donnée à la fin du siècle des Lumières par l’émergence des théories « aéristes » (contagion par l’air).

Les initiatives émanent de l’État (asile impérial de Vincennes), de municipalités (hôpital Trousseau, à Paris), ou encore de commanditaires privés faisant acte de bienfaisance, comme le dispensaire Furtado-Heine construit à Paris par Paul Blondel. L’hôpital devient un sujet d’étude dans les écoles d’architecture, ainsi qu’en témoignent les dessins d’Hector Guimard pour un petit hospice et ceux de Maurice Boille pour un sanatorium.

L'invention française de la ménopause

The French Invention of Menopause and the Medicalisation of Women's Ageing: A History


Alison M. Downham Moore

Publisher ‏ : ‎ Oxford University Press (January 20, 2023)
Language ‏ : ‎ English
Hardcover ‏ : ‎ 512 pages
ISBN-13 ‏ : ‎ 978-0192842916

Doctors writing about menopause in France vastly outnumbered those in other cultures throughout the entire nineteenth century. The concept of menopause was invented by French male medical students in the aftermath of the French Revolution, becoming an important pedagogic topic and a common theme of doctors' professional identities in postrevolutionary biomedicine. Older women were identified as an important patient cohort for the expanding medicalisation of French society and were advised to entrust themselves to the hygienic care of doctors in managing the whole era of life from around and after the final cessation of menses. However, menopause owed much of its conceptual weft to earlier themes of women as the sicker sex, of vitalist crisis, of the vapours, and of astrological climacteric years.

This is the first comprehensive study of the origins of the medical concept of menopause, richly contextualising its role in nineteenth-century French medicine and revealing the complex threads of meaning that informed its invention. It tells a complex story of how women's ageing featured in the demographic revolution in modern science, in the denigration of folk medicine, in the unique French field of hygiène, and in the fixation on women in the emergence of modern psychiatry. It reveals the nineteenth-century French origins of the still-current medical and alternative-health approaches to women's ageing as something to be managed through gynaecological surgery, hormonal replacement, and lifestyle intervention.

Histoire de peau

Skin: A Layered History


Exhibition 



10 February 2023 - 13 October 2023
Monday - Friday
10am - 4.30pm
Free entry

11 Queen Street, Edinburgh, EH2 1JQ

 

‘Skin: A Layered History’ explores the changing meaning of skin from the 1500s to the present day.

Bringing together artefacts spanning scientific illustrations, early modern rare books, medicines, wax models, prostheses and sculptures, this exhibition uncovers the social, cultural and medical history of skin.

The exhibition is split into four themes. It starts by exploring the role of the skin as a boundary – one which might need to be breached to let out the disease trapped within.

It then moves on to uncover the history of skin diagnosis and treatment, including the role which scientific illustrations and wax models played in the development of dermatology. The exhibition then considers the history of skin markings – from scars to tattoos. Finally, the exhibition explores skin-related prejudice past and present, in the context of racism, sexism and classism.
