This conference consolidates the international network of historians working on the relationship between the sciences and the ‘occult’ in the 19th and 20th centuries, hoping to contribute to a differentiated appreciation of the historicity of concepts such as ‘rationality’, ‘pseudo-science’, ‘quackery’ and other catchwords routinely used in a simplistic manner by popularisers of science and medicine.
