  1. Zwischen individueller Therapie und politischer Intervention : Strategien gegen "Zivilisationskrankheiten" zwischen 1920 und 1960.

    Article - En allemand

    Traduction en anglais : Between politics and psychotherapy : strategies against "diseases of civilisation" in 20th century Germany.

    The concept of « disease of civilisation » is commonly used for a variety of conditions.

    It implies a criticism of the « modem » way of life.

    This criticism and the strategies put forward to prevent diseases of civilisation are correlated to the specific historical context in which they are formulated.

    The paper analyses three positions characterising different periods in 20th century German history : In the Weimar Republic, representatives ofpaediatrics and social hygiene asked for the expansion of public health care programmes according to the principles laid down by the Weimar constitution.

    During the time of National Socialism, more radical measures were propagated by exponents of hygiene and psychotherapy, aiming at a fundamental restructuration of society in accordance with the Nazi ideology.

    After 1945, strategies focused on the individual : Physical exercise, abstinence, and individual psychotherapy were propagated to prevent or treat the consequences of life in modern society.
