The Woman: An Anthropological View

  • H.-J. Prill
Conference paper


The development of anthropologic medicine from psychophysical roots on the one hand, and from psychoanalytical roots on the other hand, took place here in central Europe. This development occurred over a long period of time and was marked by many setbacks and obstacles. The beginnings lie actually in the writings of Hippocrates and Plato, who occupied themselves more with the relationship between Psyche and Soma than did Morgagnie, Virchow or even today’s “School of Medical Thought”.
