Circulation du savoir médical et politique à Buenos Aires (1820-1852)

Abstract : This article is the final result of research on the history of medical knowledge and practices and their relationship with political power in Buenos Aires between 1821 and 1852. The chapters that make up this study are interested in the construction of the complex interrelationship between medicine and politics. This research has highlighted the lack of work produced on this issue by historiography. The thesis analyzes the early institutionalization process of medicine as an academic and scientific knowledge through the creation of the University of Buenos Aires, academic medical education and control of practice and professional by public-corporate institutions such as the Court of Medicine and the Academy of Medicine. It also focuses on the presence of certain current medical thinking which also circulated in a wider area that exceeds that of doctors. It is studying how this process became operating through two components: one side, the participation of scientific debates in the construction of a public sphere, on the other, the doctor’s intervention as a political member’s of the Buenos Aires parliament.
