Pills, Powders and Balms - The Cultural History of Medicines

PIllen, Pulver, Salben - Vom Kräutergarten zur Gentechnologie

A cultural history of medicines is also a cultural history of civilisation. Health care has been THE subject in every society and at every time in our history. How does a functioning health system bring about a stable society? What were and are the great evolutionary steps in the development of new medicines and what are the challenges for the future? From the herbal gardens of the Middle Ages and Paracelsus to the great researchers of the 19th and 20th centuries, the cultural history of medicines is a fascinating journey through the history of mankind.
