    Leprosy: Medical Views of Leviticus Rabba.Boris S. Ostrer - 2002 - Early Science and Medicine 7 (2):138-154.
    This article discusses chapters 15 and 16 of the ancient midrash Leviticus Rabba and its view of leprosy. The phenomenon of Biblical leprosy is here not investigated from a paleopathological point of view. The focus lies on its physiological, actiological, pathological and therapeutic aspects as represented in Leviticus Rabba. It is argued that the medical views of Leviticus Rabba show a certain resemblance to some of the view of the Hippocratic School, notably with respect to humoral theory, the (...)

    Book Review of Leprosy in Premodern Medicine. A Malady of the Whole Body by Luke Demaitre PhD. [REVIEW]Karin M. Schmitt - 2007 - Philosophy, Ethics, and Humanities in Medicine 2:24-.
    Luke Demaitre's Leprosy in Premodern Medicine: A Malady of the Whole Body is a highly interesting study of the medical history of leprosy and the medical and social perceptions on leprosy that have been around for centuries. Remarkably, it is likely that leprosy will disappear from the face of the Earth in our generation, thanks to the development of a curative treatment and its increasing availability (although the battle has not yet been won completely). Demaitre's book (...)

    The Fiery Crucible, Yorick’s Skull, and Leprosy In the Sky: Hegel and the Otherness of Nature.Jeffrey Reid - 2004 - Idealistic Studies 34 (1):99-115.
    This paper deals with the problematic relationship between thought and nature in Hegel. This entails looking at the philosophy of nature and discovering to what extent it claims to incorporate natural otherness or contingency and how it does so. I briefly summarize other approaches to this question while putting forward my own solution. This is expressed in an argument articulated around the three Hegelian images in the paper’s title. We discover how the relation between philosophy and nature is a dynamic (...)

    Disease and Disability Metaphors in Gospel Worlds.Louise J. Lawrence - 2019 - Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology 73 (4):377-385.
    The use of leprosy and blindness metaphors in the Gospels tends to stigmatize individuals as other. Untouchability was associated with social death and sight with the navigation of both material and moral terrain. Though the majority of disease and disability metaphors in the Gospels fall within this category, there are some exceptions that subvert the normative perspective. These exceptions provide promising spaces for disability advocates to challenge ableist links between disease, disability, and malevolence, and to imagine counter-narratives in which (...)

    Currents in Contemporary Ethics: Shocking Treatment: The Use of Tasers in Psychiatric Care.Cheryl Erwin & Robert Philibert - 2006 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 34 (1):116-120.
    The use of restraints on psychiatric patients has long been criticized, and the need for self-restraint of professionals in response to new technologies has been documented from the nineteenth century. Since the middle ages, when leprosy disappeared from civilized society, individuals with a “deranged mind” came to occupy the public space of outcast once reserved for the leper. This diminished social status conflicts with the ethical precept of respect for all patients and the need for humane treatment within the (...)

    Was There a Bacteriological Revolution in Late Nineteenth-Century Medicine?Michael Worboys - 2007 - Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part C: Studies in History and Philosophy of Biological and Biomedical Sciences 38 (1):20-42.
    That there was a ‘Bacteriological Revolution’ in medicine in the late nineteenth-century, associated with the development of germ theories of disease, is widely assumed by historians; however, the notion has not been defined, discussed or defended. In this article a characterisation is offered in terms of four linked rapid and radical changes: a series of discoveries of the specific causal agents of infectious diseases and the introduction of Koch’s Postulates; a reductionist and contagionist turn in medical knowledge and practice; greater (...)

    Writing Autohistoria-Teoría: Agency and Illness in German Life Narratives by Evelyne Leandro and Mely Kiyak.Katja Herges - 2020 - Medical Humanities 46 (2):e1-e1.
    Health concerns by migrants have been neglected in the German healthcare system, and they are impacted by discriminating discourses of othering. By analysing two autobiographical illness narratives by immigrants in contemporary Germany, this article exposes limitations in existing discourses of migration health and argues for more relational and affirmative theories of illness and care. Evelyn Leandro’s diary The Living Death: The Struggle with a Long-Forgotten Illness describes her own drawn-out therapy against leprosy as a Brazilian in Berlin. In Mr (...)

    Resumo: Ao longo da história, lepra e leproso foram objetos de representações de caráter depreciativo que permitiram a utilização de um modelo de tratamento para a doença fundamentado na exclusão do enfermo e no seu confinamento compulsório em instituições asilares. O artigo procura discutir a relação entre representações abstratas e práticas de poder a partir das medidas adotadas no combate à lepra no Brasil do século XX.Palavras-chave: lepra, representações, segregação, práticas de poder, violência.: In history, leprosy and leprous were (...)

  26. ‘A Petty Form of Suffering’: A Brief Cultural Study of Itching.Naomi Segal - 2018 - Body and Society 24 (1-2):88-102.
    ‘Itching is a petty form of suffering,’ wrote André Gide in 1931. Itching may be occasional or obsessive; it positions a person inside a body that exists in familial and social contexts; it can be evoked in debates about righteousness and justice. This article begins with discussion of the work of Didier Anzieu, psychoanalyst author of The Skin-ego: among the nine ‘functions’ of the skin-ego that Anzieu describes, the last is ‘toxicity’, the skin turned against itself in a gesture of (...)

    The European-American Exchange.Francisco Guerra - 1993 - History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences 15 (3):313 - 327.
    The European-American exchange of infectious diseases was responsible for the demogrpahic havoc of the native population in the New World after 1492. Prior to this date medical writers describe the presence in Spain of viral diseases like influenza, parotitis, smallpox, measles, poliomyelitis, and rabies; there were also rickettsiasis, diphtheria, salmonellosis, plague, tubercolosis, leprosy, malaria, scabies and tinea. In America, before European arrivals, there were no records of human viral diseases, though there were records of rickettsiasis, treponematosis — pinta, yaws (...)

    Epidemics in Perspective.Ronald O. Valdiserri - 1987 - Journal of Medical Humanities 8 (2):95-100.
    Irrational responses to patient with AIDS, particularly in regards to the transmissibility of HIV are examined from an historical and psychosocial perspective. Although these responses are similar to those reported from past epidemics such as plague and leprosy, they are in direct conflict with our current level of understanding regarding the transmission of this virus. Their genesis may relate to the human penchant to react to illness metaphorically. In order to allay effectively public concern about the transmissibility of AIDS, (...)

    Three Women in Martial.L. C. Wartson - 1983 - Classical Quarterly 33 (01):258-.
    ‘Ein vÖllig unverständliches Wortspiel’, said Friedlander. There have been many attempts to solve the riddle. The older commentators, following Domizio Calderini, offered a fantastic solution: Athenagoras was a doctor specializing in leprosy : ‘porro ducta uxore coepit lingere cunnum…unde factus est olficius, hoc est olfacit cunnum’! H. C. Schnur emended to Olbius : Albius Athenagoras , by marrying a rich wife, became Olbius. This explanation deprives the name ‘Albius’ of any point; nor is it particularly witty to say that (...)

    Exploring The Role Of Phronesis In Social Innovation: A Case Study Of Dr. Ruth Pfau.Ansar Waseem & Yasir Rashid - 2019 - Pakistan Journal of Applied Social Sciences 9 (1):1-18.
    Although recent literature on social innovation proclaims its virtue in addressing unmet social needs. Yet little is known about the relationship between phronesis and social innovation. This paper aims to explore how a social entrepreneur uses phronesis in addressing a social problem. Taking case study as qualitative research inquiry, this paper uses the interviews and life account of Dr. Ruth Pfau on how she incorporated her phronesis in treating patients suffering from leprosy. The empirical evidences collected were analyzed using (...)
