History of the body Q Are the approaches of Foucault and Porter to the theme of this module compatible? Instructions It is very important that you give an accurate reference for each claim that you make. This must always be at least to the exact page (see examples below). For these particular tasks, the exact form of the referencing is unimportant; what does matter (in these as in all cases) is that you make it easy for the reader to find the passage to which you’re referring Referencing can use abbreviations e.g.: • • “Porter 410” for Porter p. 410 “Wesley viii para 11” for Wesley p. viii paragraph 11 [notice here that you should exploit the opportunity to give a more precise reference by specifying the paragraph-number] Use footnotes for references. Sometimes you may be able to save a little on the word-count, if consecutive citations happen to be from the same source (e.g.: “Martin 112, 118, 120-21”) No need for a bibliography No need for external sources apart from the one given (Handout 2B) Please direct the answer to the question Show understanding of the content and argument of the materials There is no need for a formal “Introduction” or “Conclusion”. Nevertheless, the first few sentences should set things up for the reader (e.g. by analysing the question, or by outlining the structure of what’s to follow), and the final paragraph should round the exercise off in some way (e.g. by summarising what you’ve argued, or by delivering a punchline for which the reader has been suitably prepared). Use of quotations: In each exercise, to demonstrate understanding you will have to put things in your own words. But to support your reading, you will also have to use quotations.

Foucault And Porter


It is quite evident that Foucault and Porter's viewpoints form an essential and relevant
contribution to the growth of western medicine. Foucault's depiction of the birth of the clinic
symbolized an important step in the history of western medicine as the new modes of treatment
favored a situation where patients could be admitted and treated in hospitals under the
supervision of physicians and this was a radical transition from the old medicine to the new
medicine. In the preface, Foucault gives a rather convincing contrast of two texts which dealt
with membranes but in two distinct ways. This was the works of Pierre Pomme (1735-1812) and
Antoine-Laurent-Jesse-Bayle (1799-1858).
According to Foucault's analysis of the two texts, there seemed to be glaring differences
as a result of their divergent views in a seemingly similar topic. In his part, Pomme elaborated on
the treatment of hysteria through the expulsion of membranous tissue through different body
openings. On the other hand, Bayle on his part elaborated on a procedure for what he perceived
to be an effective treatment of brain meningitis. Foucault then concludes by alluding that Pomme
is communicating through a language of fantasy whereas Bayle is us...
