On Medicine, Medical Practitioners, and Advancements in Medicine

Marcel Proust

Marcel Proust

“For, medicine being a compendium of the successive and contradictory mistakes of medical practitioners, when we summon the wisest of them to our aid the chances are that we may be relying on a scientific truth the error of which will be recognized in a few years; time.  So that to believe in medicine would be the height of folly, if not to believe in it were not a greater folly still, for from this mass of errors a few truths have in the long run emerged.” – Marcel Proust, Remembrance of Things Past
