Lecture by Christèle Barois: La production de la couleur selon la médecine classique indienne

Les textes qui représentent la médecine classique indienne — la Carakasaṃhitā,  la Suśrutasaṃhitā, ainsi que l’Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā et l’Aṣṭāṅgasaṃgraha,  deux recueils attribués à Vāgbhaṭa (viie s.) —  décrivent des pratiques fondées sur le diagnostic médical, qui laissent peu de place à la magie et à la religion. La couleur y est un attribut de la matière, que cette matière  soit la peau, les constituants organiques ou fluides du corps ou les ingrédients utilisés pour les remèdes.


Suzanne Newcombe presents on ‘The status of indigenous medicine in India from the colonial period to the present’

Suzanne Newcombe will present at a workshop run as part of the 'Law Knowledges and the making of modern 'Health Care'' - a Wellcome Investigator Award (2017-2022) to explore the regulation of traditional and alternative medicines, historically and in contemporary contexts at the University of Kent.
