Example text

Which could hardly be more to the point: what indeed “makes a humanist,” how transmit that “art,” and what, in the end, are the “humanities” actually all about? To be sure, Martin perhaps should have worried not only about those trying to “outscience” the scientists, but just as much about those at work cultivating ever sharper and deeper divisions between what C. P. Snow had earlier termed the two cultures. In any event, neither scientists nor physicians, ever more reliant on the biomedical sciences, nor the humanist pretenders to the crown of knowledge were likely to worry about Martin’s appeal.

For just this reason, not only is treatment of individual sick or injured persons a central point of restorative medicine, but the healer made “the afflictions of the human body the law governing his treatment,” in Edelstein’s words: disruptions of or in the body inform the healer what should be done. Closely connected with acting always “on behalf of” each individual (the historical core of the idea of benefit), on the other hand, is the phenomenon of mischief. An intriguing twist, noted already, is included, however.

A bit more modestly, H. Tristram Englehardt, Jr. waited for a few years before publishing his own version of such grand and unreserved visions; (Englehardt 1986) and there are others, (Katz 1984; Pellegrino and Thomasma 1987) no one of which could be ‘the correct’ version, as each most often disagreed more or less seriously with the others—a phenomenon not in the least uncommon in our times, as another commentator noted early on as well. Nor should I forget to mention the vast number of conferences, professional meetings, symposia and the like, along with their resulting published collections of essays (to which, I confess, I have also contributed now and then), not to mention the many other anthologies and book series, which appeared over this span of time, and continue to appear.
