Discover medical science's extraordinary journey from a time when even the slightest cut held the threat of infection and death to today's era of routine organ transplants and daily headlines about the mysteries of DNA and the human genome. What major discoveries made this transition possible? Who were the fascinating individuals responsible for those discoveries, and what qualities prepared each of them for their unique roles in medical history?
These 12 compelling lectures draw on the lives of medicine's greatest contributors to tell the human story behind the development of Western scientific medicine. Professor Nuland reveals the human side of science - a story about strivings, disappointments, triumphs of human genius, and even greed.
This course is a must-have for anyone interested in the fascinating story of medicine's evolution-and the brilliant men and women who made this journey possible. Topics include the rise of universities and how they influenced medical education; the appearance of scientific method and what we call "inductive reasoning"; the influence of individual personality on achievement along with the accompanying influence of national character and culture; the role of the church; and the part played by each discoverer's psychological makeup.
Please note: This course contains some discussion about certain historical medical practices and experiments that, while common in their time, may seem barbaric and unusual to us today. The professor does not necessarily describe them in graphic detail, but due to the subject matter of this course, some descriptions of these practices do arise. This should be noted before selecting this course for a young or sensitive individual.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Eine bibliographische Geschichte der Medizin

Wer "das Jahrhundert des Chirurgen" geliebt hat, wird seine Freude an diesem Audiobuch haben. Der Autor, Prof. Nuland- selber ein Arzt an der Elite-Uni Yale, hält 12 Vorlesungen über historische Personen, die Meilensteine der Medizingeschichte gesetzt haben. Besonderen Wert legt der Autor auf die Charakterisierung der Protagonisten: Es waren ganz normale, neurotische, egoistische, physisch kleine Menschen, die neugierig waren, Probleme entdeckt haben und gehandelt haben um Lösungen zu finden.

Sehr gute Vorträge, sehr angenehme Stimme.
