Abstract En

Claudio Milanesi : Death as an instant and death as a process in late 18th-century medicine. The transfer from the Christian and originally Platonic, paradigm, which defines death as the instant at which the soul is separated from the body, to the physiological and vitalistic model, which sees it on the contrary as a process characterized by the successive interruption of organic functions, took place in the works of the new Enlightenment medicine. The concept long attributed to Xavier Bichat was based on the research of Jean-Jacques Ménuret de Chambaud, Jacques-Benigne Winslow, and Paul-Joseph Barthez.
