Abstract

[automatically translated] On the basis of the writings of H.-G. Gadamer, H. Jonas and R. Spaemann, in this essay theorizes a conception "neo-Hippocratic" of the medical act, in which the instances of humanization and scientific rigor demands seem reconciled in the famous saying "medicus curat, natura sanat ". Beyond undue medicalization of existence, in fact, the art of medicine will show its human face to the extent that cover not the but-manipulation body but to his care and his healing, discovers, in the heart ancient notion of physis, that ' "hidden harmony" that, even today, is the purpose and at the same time the limit of its exercise.
