Abstract

Correspondance between physicians reveals much about their medical practices and the theoretical frame within which they evolve. Concentrating on a correspondance between Daniel De la Roche and Louis Odier, this chapter explores the uses these authors make of case histories and the different cultural genres to which they refer.
