My PhD is a study of the relationship between science and politics in the aftermath of the French Revolution. It explores the way in which ideas derived from natural philosophy and medicine informed attempts to construct a science of politics and society. The prospective title of this study is 'Vitalism, Politics and the Science of Society in France, 1795-1848'.
