The Concept of Physician in the Writings of Hans Carossa and Arthur Schnitzler


Maria P. Alter

This study compares the concept of physician in the works of two writers of the same epoch who both wrote in German and were both professional physicians. After a review of main similarities and differences in the lives of the two writers, with special attention to their medical background, the role attributed to the physician in their works and the frequency of physicians among their characters are examined.
