History and medicine: the inheritance of an age-old paradigm

By Maria Helena Cabral de Almeida Cardoso

Abstract

A proposta de estudar a interconex??o entre hist??ria e medicina a partir da heran??a comum de um modelo de conhecimento implica resgatar o passado como vetor para a reflex??o sobre a posi????o de ambas no est??gio atual da produ????o cient??fica. ?? nesse sentido que, neste artigo, busca-se discutir n??o s?? a historicidade e os fundamentos comuns a esses dois campos do conhecimento, as articula????es poss??veis de serem estabelecidas entre eles, como tamb??m os elementos a serem considerados na pesquisa sobre a imbrica????o entre os dois campos. Prop??e-se uma abordagem em rede capaz de mostrar, por um lado, que tanto os discursos epistemol??gicos da medicina quanto os da hist??ria estruturam-se narrativamente como meio de abarcar conhecimentos espec??ficos acerca de seus objetos e, por outro, que figuras de linguagem, especialmente a met??fora, t??m um papel importante na constru????o e divulga????o desses dois campos do saberBased on inheritance of a common model of knowledge, drawing links between history and medicine represents a proposal to not abandon the contribution the past has to make when reflecting upon the current stage of scientific production in both fields. With this in mind, the present study endeavors to discuss history???s and medicine???s common ground and their historicity, the articulations possible between the two fields, and, lastly, the elements that should be taken into account when researching relations between them. The article proposes a network approach that will demonstrate (1) that both medical and historical studies display a narrative epistemology, used as a means of addressing specific knowledge about their objects of study and (2) that figures of language - the metaphor above all - have an important role to play in the construction and dissemination of both fields
