Ways of knowing : a new history of science, technology, and medicine by John V Pickstone( Book )

19 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text provides an accessible framework for understanding science, technology, and medicine (STM) in the West from the Renaissance to the 21st-century. John V. Pickstone's approach has four key features. First, he synthesizes the long-term histories and philosophies of disciplines that are normally studied separately. Second, he dissects STM into specific ways of knowing - natural history, analysis, and experimentalism - with separate but interlinked elements. Third, he explores these ways of knowing as forms of work related to our various technologies for making, mending, and destroying. And finally, he relates scientific and technical knowledges to popular understandings and to politics

Medical innovations in historical perspective( Book )

17 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discoveries and new techniques are the stuff of much medical history, but we know remarkably little about the sources of innovation and how new forms of medicine were created and understood in their own times. In this volume, a team of medical historians apply the techniques of the new social history to medical innovations in the century 1860-1960. Topics range from antiseptic surgery to psychiatry, from new drugs to the reorganization of hospital services. They include "failures" as well as "successes," European and American examples as well as British. The essays constitute a sustained exploration of social context in medical innovation. In sequence, they also provide a perspective on social and political change in medicine. The volume will appeal to practitioners, teachers and students in history, sociology, economics, medicine and policy studies - indeed to all who wish to understand the subtle interactions of science, medical practice and social organization

Historians from the three fields that Porter made his own - the histories of medicine, madness, and the Enlightenment - illustrate his influence while tackling major themes ranging from disability rights to the popularization of science. In their accounts, artisan gardeners jostle with anarchists, dentists, and hypnotists in a lively, and very Porterian, parade
