História e Filosofia da Medicina | History and Philosophy of Medicine

Objectivos / Aims
In this Internal Project (IP) we intend to do a systematic study of the cognitive role of images in the construction of medical knowledge. The work is to be done in the line of recent tendencies in philosophy of science which take as their object of analysis, not scientific discourse but scientific practices and procedures. If, at communicative level, science has to translate the plan of theoretical invisibility (theories, laws, concepts) into discursive forms (written materials), on the contrary, the construction of scientific knowledge supposes the explanation of the visible by the invisible (observable by intelligible, fact by law, phenomenon by theory). Medicine is the most decisive case.
