This book analyses how nineteenth-century doctors gathered in medical societies to discuss, evaluate, publish and celebrate their studies. It reveals how the codes of conduct that regulated scientific practice corresponded to the values of social engagement, polite debate and a free press of the urban bourgeoisie.
