GOUBERT, Jean-Pierre. History of the body: main axes of research on history of health (France, 1970-2000). Rev. bras. crescimento desenvolv. hum. [online]. 2006, vol.16, n.1, pp. 97-102. ISSN 0104-1282.

This article describes how, having emerged in the last thirty years, research on History of Health in France has been marked by four great research directions: history of health professionals, history of diseases, history of hospitals, history of mentalities. It presents the state-of-the-art in each one of these directions during those decades. Finally, it points to the difficult process of being recognized as a separate specialty due to the broadness of its theme: the body.

Keywords : History; Health; Health professionals; Diseases; Hospitals; Mentalities; France.
