Schriften zur Geschichte und Philosophie der Medizin und der Naturwissenschaften
This book series focuses on the reconstruction and analysis of medical and scientific ways of thinking and knowledge systems. It also incorporates disciplines which examine medicine from their own perspective: literature and media studies, historical anthropology and ethnology, as well as sociology and religious studies.
The series Kulturanamnesen uses historiography to interpret present-day medicine and life sciences. The semantic shift from history to anamnesis highlights its practical relevance to the present and at the same time introduces a philosophical perspective to the basic concepts of these disciplines. The series thus aims to build a bridge from their past to an epicrisis of their challenges in today’s cultural environment.
