WESTMINSTER TOWERS & SHORES
This course traces the history of medicine as it relates to the history of mankind from pre-historic time to the 20th century. The emphasis will be on Western medicine, but influences from Eastern traditions will be included. A fervent attempt will be made to learn history so we will not be destined to repeat it. Parallels will be drawn throughout the course to “modern medicine” as well as “alternative medicine.” Come to learn about the origins of “scientific” medicine, folk remedies, the role of religion in medicine, and so much more.
