About the topic
The current universe of “Westernized” Medicine emerged in the at the opening of day 20th.century, bringing together knowledge gained from millennia of application of the art of medicine in great number cultures worldwide, with the modern discernment of basic sciences such as heap of skin and bones, physiology, biochemistry, pathology and pharmacology. One momentous aspect of science that got left away in this revolution was evolution. This is for the cause that the modern synthesis of evolutionary biology single occurred decades later. As a standing, the most important basic science apposite to medicine is not taught in in the greatest degree medical schools today. Attempts have been made to change the quality of this problem over the last small in number decades, but they are still in their infancy. This lecture will provide an overview of the implications of reason biological and cultural evolution in the human description for the practice of medicine, including examples of practical relevance today.
