Suffering Scholars: Pathologies of the Intellectual in Enlightenment France 
Anne C. Vila

 

"Anne C. Vila's book is a model of concise and well-articulated rigor on a fascinating topic that has been neglected and overlooked—the medical literature devoted to the sicknesses of men of letters. She shows how these texts provide an excellent vantage point from which to survey significant aspects of eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century literature and medicine. A striking achievement."—Colin Jones, Queen Mary University of London

 

Suffering Scholars focuses on the medical and literary dimensions of the cult of celebrity that developed around intellectuals during the French Enlightenment. Anne C. Vila shows how the "suffering scholar" syndrome deeply influenced debates about the consequences of book-learning on both the individual body and the body politic.

Samuel-Auguste Tissot, De la santé des gens de lettres 

Édition d’Anne Vila et Ronan Chalmin 

 

Au xviiie siècle, la santé des intellectuels devient un nouvel enjeu médical et litté- raire. Avec De la santé des gens de lettres (3e éd., 1775) le docteur Tissot propose aux lettrés un livre classique mêlant tableaux de cas cliniques et remèdes pour traiter les maux dus à « l’intempérance littéraire». 

 

In the 18th century, the health of intellectuals became a new medical and literary theme. With De la santé des gens de lettres (3rd ed., 1775), Dr. S.-A. Tissot offered scholars a classic book combining description of clinical cases with remedies to treat the ills due to “literary intemperance”.
