For centuries, medicine and medical doctors have inspired various texts and iconographies. This issue of Sociétés & Représentations specifically focuses on doctors who inspire images: as direct producers of these figurations, in the same manner as doctors, who are also writers, especially Martin Winckler, whose testimony is reproduced here, or as indirect producers when it concerns health education videos, engravings of medical monographs, waiting room frescoes, and pharmaceutical advertising. All the same, doctors are of course “prescribers” of these productions, considering that they supervise production and/or define rules. They are even, at times, the major targets. Having thus defined the scope of our investigations, the articulation of this obviously incomplete special report is based on a central question: how do medical doctors choose to represent themselves and what can one deduce from the position this corporation claims in our societies? The interdisciplinary approach of Sociétés & Représentations should provide some answers to this question.
