Using 18th century electrotherapy data to learn more about scientific knowledge
Science is subjective and situational. It is shaped by experiences and cognitive perceptions, which are themselves affected by circumstances, knowledge, and beliefs. Being cutting-edge and meticulously recorded at the time, 18th century electrotherapy data offers a unique way of understanding these interactions and how they impacted scientific knowledge. The ERC-funded ELBOW project is an empirical study of how direct experience, cognitive perceptions, experiential knowledge, and the epistemological beliefs of ordinary patients impacted electrotherapeutic practices and scientific knowledge as a whole. In doing so, the project will offer a more complex and enlightened approach to the history of knowledge.
