Abstract

Chronic alcohol misuse is an intractable problem for contemporary medicine. This paper explores some of the origins of this intractability, by examining the formulation of medical and moral models of habitual drunkenness during the nineteenth century. Its objective is to sketch out an historical perspective for contemporary problems in disentangling the relationship between culpability and susceptibility in alcohol dependence.
