About This Item

Durham & London:: Duke University Press, 1992., 1992. 8vo. xiv, 342 pp. Index. Cloth, dust-jacket. Fine. RARE IN JACKET. Wellman is Dedman Family Distinguished Professor and History Department Chair. "Professor Kathleen Wellman's work focuses on the connections between science and culture in early modern France. Her career reflects the evolution of both the history of science and of intellectual history, disciplines which have become more sensitive to the broad cultural contexts that shape scientific careers and the production of knowledge in which intellectuals flourish. . . In La Mettrie: Medicine, Philosophy, and Enlightenment, Wellman explores the ways in which philosophe and physician, Julien Offray de La Mettrie's medical concerns shaped his views on philosophy, morals, and social reform, and, conversely, how the emerging thought of the Enlightenment was reflected in his medical writings. La Mettrie emerges as a central figure in connecting medicine to the Enlightenment and in elucidating the medical view of nature, human beings, and society that the Enlightenment bequeathed to the modern world." [Wellman's web-page]. ISBN: 0822312042
