9789057024085: Manifesting Medicine: Bodies and Machines (Artefacts, Studies in the History of Science and Technology , Vol 1)

Increasingly, historians and museum curators are using technological artifacts as expressions of human culture. Reflecting the broad scope of interaction between science, technology and society, they can help us see not just machines, but also imaginative worlds of the past. Building on this growing interest, three of the world's greatest depositories of material heritage in the history of technology: the Deutsches Museum in Munich, the Science Museum in London and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington are cooperating in the new series of publications which explores the use of objects as resources in the study of the history of science, technology, and medicine. Each volume will explore a wide range of uses of objects but will focus on a particular area of study.
With its focus upon modern technology, Manifesting Medicine is a history of medicine with a difference. The authors have striven to show that those who today encounter the artifacts of this book, in its pages and even perhaps

Review:

The well-illustrated volume successfully highlights the complex ways in which historians and curators can work with objects, beyond merely using them as illustrations for previously developed ideas....This book conveys some of the rich potential for scholars and curators to use the resources of the worlds museums creatively. Upcoming volumes in the series will have a high standard to meet.
–Technology and Culture, January 2001
