This essay explores responses to the Paris cholera epidemic of 1832 to show how medical ideas shaped popular conceptions of the social world, while at the same time this world influenced how scientists posed their basic hypotheses.
It demonstrates how responses to the epidemic were shaped by two major realities : the population of Paris was exploding and France had recently experienced a second major revolution.
