ABSTRACT: We will analyze a segment of the very complex theoretical background concerning the current History of Medicine. In this sense, it is indispensable to examine the social contextualization of medicine, its links to political and cultural history, i.e. to global history, to meetings between different therapeutic cultures, to moral questions raised by automation, psychoanalysis, anthropology, anatomy, to the very original connections to the epistemological thought – cinema, town‐planning, history of arts or religions, artistic performances. Last, but not least, History of Medicine, maybe, is an etiology of pathos. Well, like any etiology, by definition and etymology, it comes from a myth and arises around the explanation of a noun.
