About Me

My study focus on the history of the complex relationship between medicine and doctors in France since two centuries, with products altering consciousness and sensibility, alternately designed as innovative medicines or as toxic.
This research aims at elucidating the complex chronologies governing these movements; it aims to better understand the actual medical practices through systematic literature review comments and analysis of archive; it is also intended to place them both in the matter of medical expertise and its socioprofessional stakes, and in the wider context of the relationship that society has with psychotropic drugs and therefore with pleasure, insanity, pain and death.
