General Information

From the Paper:

"The major point of the editors is to demonstrate how cultural perceptions have shaped our views of the world. The authors effectively demonstrate their point not by dictating scientific arguments perceptions or explaining things, but through presenting medical and literary works as the essential aspect of culture, representing the way culture has evolved and developed over the course of human civilization. The cultural impact is explained in terms of the aspect of medicine, which is an empirical and scientific and rational form of science and application."
