"Old Humanities and New Science": Osler's legacy

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Nowadays the call for a return to the centrality of man and the thrust toward humanization of medicine are growing stronger: in this respect we think that William Osler’s life can be considered as one of those exemplar lives that changed the course of medicine, as he was able to overcome the duality of science and humanity, focusing on the ethical values capable of bridging the past to the future of medicine.
