Medicine after the Time of Cholera
This book explores the professionalization of American medicine through the lens of epistemological change. It explains how allopathic physicians came to embrace the epistemology of the laboratory, the nature of the epistemic closure in U.S. medicine, and the organizational infrastructure that such closure yielded. This conclusion summarizes the important points discussed in the book and offers some final thoughts on the history and elements of the epistemic contest in the United States.
