Summary

#2: “Like anywhere, no more big shots in Health Care!” was the slogan which had the day in May '68. The whole paternalistic model of knowledge and social organization fell apart, in laboratories, hospital departments and universities. Everywhere, students and young researchers challenged hierarchical relationships, any authority no longer accepted, and shouted out loud "Damn the mandarins!"
