Sexology, Medical Ethics and Occultism
Professor Holger Maehle and Dr Lutz Sauerteig from the Centre for the History of Medicine and Disease are the guest editors of a special issue of the international journal Medical History, entitled ‘Sexology, Medical Ethics and Occultism: Albert Moll in Context’, which is now available through Cambridge University Press (Med. Hist., vol. 56/2, 2012).
The Berlin physician Albert Moll (1862-1939) was an important innovator in psychotherapy, sexual science and medical professional ethics as well as a fierce critic of occult beliefs. The special issue results from a Wellcome Trust supported project of the CHMD and unites contributions from Britain, Germany, the Netherlands, USA, and New Zealand.
