Abstract

Charcot frequently used Shakespearean references in his neurologic teaching sessions. With these citations, he emphatically stressed how objective observation and an attention to detail were essential to expert clinical diagnosis. At the same time, Charcot presented his personal credentials as a cultured man. Charcot's interest in Shakespeare permeated many aspects of his professional work, and also his private and family life.
