|Title:||"It is wisest here, as always, to maintain a balance": the medical dissertations of Friedrich Schiller||Contributor(s):||Albury, William Randall (author); Weisz, George M (author)||Publication Date:||2004||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1712||Abstract:||Johann Christoph Friedrich Schiller (1759-1805) is remembered today for his contributions to literature and aesthetic theory - it is less well known that his first career was in medicine (an army appointment). Scholars have generally held that his primary interest lay in psychology and the psychological aspects of medicine, and that his commitment to other aspects of medicine was perfunctory at best. The present paper argues that a study of Schiller's three medical dissertations - two on psychological aspects of medicine and one on fevers - reveals his attempt "to maintain a balance" between the mind and the body in his approach to medicine.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Journal of Medical Biography, 12(4), p. 231-238||Publisher:||Royal Society of Medicine Press Ltd||Place of Publication:||United Kingdom||ISSN:||0967-7720||Field of Research (FOR):||210399 Historical Studies not elsewhere classified||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://jmb.rsmjournals.com/
