RIVERO, María Dolores  y  CARBONETTIAN, Adrián. Health exploiters? A study on medical views from Córdoba, Argentina, around empirical knowledge linked to curing practices (1930- 1940). Folia [online]. 2019, n.34, pp.65-90. ISSN 0325-8238.

In this paper, medical discourses from legal medicine that focused on certain practices considered to be bound to "ethical" biomedicine during 1930s and 1940s, specifically those carried out by "curanderos" and "charlatanes", will be studied. Our analysis aims to turn up the voices of two figures of relevance from the "psi" field and criminology in the province of Córdoba, who occuped spaces of prestige and power not only in the provincial academic field, but also in the national one. Their considerations about "curanderismo" and "charlatanismo" will show, on the one hand, a disquieting and continuous discomfort of those who were part of the spheres of the public domain. Convergently, the examination of these discursive frameworks will reveal that the "enemy" was not only among those who did not possess a university degree, but that it was also within the limits of certified medical science. The documentarycorpus is constituted by edited and unpublished writings prepared by Drs. Ariosto Licurzzi and Gregorio Bermann.

Palabras clave : Curanderos; Charlatanes; Knowledges; Córdoba.
