Abstract

This article examines different aspects of the history of medicine in the correspondence of the Swiss physician and scientist Johann Jakob Scheuchzer (1672--1733) from Zurich. The focus is on three different levels: persons, contents and functions. On all three levels we can observe that "medicine" takes in some way part of the res publica litteraria. The international correspondence network of Scheuchzer can be seen as a crucial "multiplicator" of communication within the scientific community.
