O objecto e os museus de medicina : aprofundamento de um modelo de estudo
Sónia Paula Castro Faria
Abstract The present article aims to be a reflection on the interpretative study of the medical object. It pretends to cover such aspects as its progress and diversity over time, focusing on the developing of an analytical model that may not only materialize its role in health care sciences development but also map out its contribution to a global society. Preliminary studies have been carried out to frame the analysis through the object reflection on cultural material context and its correlation with meaning in a museum context. Scientifically an approach followed that allowed the verification of the science dynamics in regard to paradigms and their acceptance throughout medical practice. This approach concludes with national as well international medical museums evolution positioning. Finally, the Museu do Centro Hospitalar do Porto project is explained through the history of the institution itself as well as its collections and objectives, and finishes by with applying practices of an analytical methodology, generating a basis on the true nature of medical collection comprehension. From the results collected, a new sorting model applicable to medical objects and their complexity is derived.
