The Future Place of Science in the Art of Healing
Thomas, Lewis
Journal of Medical Education, 51, 1, 23-9, Jan 76
Medical science, according to the author, is in a primitive stage of development. He traces the science of infection, beginning around 1875, not developed enough to be considered an applied science until the 1930's, and points out that we are only halfway in basic scientific understanding of such diseases as cancer, nephritis, and schizophrenia.
