Chinese Abstract

疾病的歷史研究近年來方興未艾。在兩岸對於中國醫療史的整體研究中,疾病史已經不再是個冷門的分支,會讓歷史學家望而生畏;取而代之的,是學者們從各個角度來檢視中國疾病史的各種可能,賦予每一種疾病在特定歷史環境中的多元意義。近代中國,是個中西文化交會的特殊時代,許多舊有的疾病文化與醫學知識譜系都被賦予了新的意義,這種趨勢已經引起了一些學者的注意,並有不錯的研究成果展現。本文試著檢視兩岸疾病史的整體研究,包括專書與論文兩個部分,並帶出近代中國的特殊性,以及這個時期的疾病史應該要加以關切的問題。最後,希望藉由這篇簡短的回顧來粗略的俯瞰既有之研究方式,來省思在近代中國疾病史的研究範疇中,還有什麼是值得開發,或是有待解決的論題,並試著提出個人的一些心得,希望本文能對這個領域的研究做出一些貢獻。

English Abstract

Studying on the history of diseases has become a popular topic in the past years. In the general study on the Chinese medical history across the Strait, the history of diseases is no longer a subject out of favor or one that intimidates historians. Instead, scholars turn to scrutinize the Chinese history of diseases from various viewpoints and try to define how each of the diseases represents a diverse role in certain historical situations. Modern China represent a special era in that Chinese culture converges with the western cultures and that many traditional diseases and medical knowledge pedigrees are redefined with new meanings. This arouses interests of some scholars who have published magnificent research results. This essay purposes to examine the overall researches on the history of diseases across the Strait, including books and essays, expose the specialty of China culture in the modern China, and discuss the issues to be concerned during this period. By reviewing the existing researches, this essay is to find out what subject is worth exploration or unresolved in the field of History of Diseases in Modern China. Personal comments are also put forth in the hope of making contributions to this field.
