Interdisciplinarity of History of Medicine and Narrowness of the Modern Domestic Historical and Medical Field

Prof. Robak I. Yu.

Kharkiv National Medical University

Author provided a classification of modern historical and medical knowledge. Further, the author convincingly proved that certain distortions and disproportions had been developed in the modern domestic historical and medical discourse. This conclusion has been done basing on analysis of publications and speeches at scientific forums of Ukrainian historians of medicine in recent years, and applying problem-chronological as well as comparative-historical research methods. Medical researchers have been trying to undertake a reconstruction of socio-cultural components of the discipline, but without sufficient mastering historical instruments. As a result, works of low quality have published. The author recommended physicians who study History of Medicine to investigate problems of development of medical science and practice, and leave problems of social relations for professional historians.

Key Words: Biography Studies, History of Medicine, History of Everyday Life, interdisciplinarity, Local History, prosopography, Social History, Urban Studies.
