Dorothea Heitsch

Writing as Medication in Early Modern France

Literary Consciousness and Medical Culture

€ 58.25


In this study, D. Heitsch examines fifteenth- to seventeenth-century French authors who treat writing as a process of medication and whose literary production effectively yields a therapeutic substance. Through reference to Plato, Aristotle, Galen, Ficino, and advocates of alternatives to Western medicine such as John Mesue and Leone Ebreo, these writers emphasize the material/gendered soul and the role of the body in cognitive functions, illustrating knowledge as a result of physical interaction. The study explores Hélisenne de Crenne alongside the `pneumo-physiology` of Galen and the `dolce stil novo`, Rabelaisian anatomy together with the anti-Arabist Champier, and debates among natural philosophical poets on the transmigration of souls. The author also considers Marie de Gournay in relation to Juan Huarte`s humoral theory and Jean d`Espagnet`s alchemical philosophy, as well as Michel de Montaigne`s interest in Jacques Dubois`s Arab-influenced approaches to medicine.
