“Medical materialism” is the historian’s name given to versions of philosophical materialism (according to which there is no soul, only body, or no immortal soul, or all mental processes can be explained in corporeal and/or cerebral terms) that specifically invoke or rely on medical information or more broadly a rhetoric of medical authority, according to which the doctor is the professional who is best informed about body-soul relations (better than the theologian or the philosopher).
