"Of Science and Humanity": The Mütter Museum of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia

Loading...
Gretchen Worden, B.A. (Curator and Director, Mütter Museum of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia) presented a history of anatomical museums in general and an extensive viewing and description of the many anatomical and pathological specimens in the Mütter Museum. Barry Hinton, Ph. D. (Professor of Anatomy and Cell Biology, University of Virginia) concluded by remarking how "we have gone full circle in public dissection." Dr. Hinton showed several images beginning with a 17th century's public viewing of dissection followed by a 19th century's private scene and ended with a 21st century public viewing of corpses that had been plasticized.
