The Field of Medicine of the Eighteenth Century Nicholas Culpeper’s The English Physician creates a sense that the medical sciences was primitive in the early eighteenth century. His published work is analogous to that of a cookbook with remedies created from various ingredients that can easily be located in any typical garden. Furthermore the remedies in which he provides in his publication appears to be composed of a set of random ingredients without any scientific data to support why he chose those specific sets of ingredients. It appears as though England, at this time, had no standard or regulation for the medical profession. It can therefore be inferred that Culpeper’s motives in publishing this work was most likely to make money rather than contributing to the medical sciences. This idea of making money correlates to the transformation of identity brought about during this time period in which the general public was a consumerist society that bought lots of things causing the revival to come about as a response against it.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
