Abstract

For centuries, one principle has stood above all others in the medical field: First, do no harm. But has our basic healthcare lost this vital philosophy in its pursuit of advancement and profit? Follow the journey of medicine from its earliest beginnings at the dawn of humanity to the incredible technological advances of the 21st century. By examining key figures and events, this book’s focus on the rationales of pioneering practitioners and the philosophies behind major discoveries sets it apart from current medical and historical literature for both providers and consumers of healthcare.

In the age of unprecedented advancements, the evolution of medicine and its underlying philosophies has been cast aside for the pursuit of the next, best development. In the search to provide the best care, human history has had great triumphs but also great horrors. It is important in our healthcare pursuits, both as patient and practitioner, to remember that history and examine how today’s medicine fits within its historical progression.
