This morning, I read the post Morals, Mammaries, and the Invention of the Stethoscope on mental_floss:
Then, just a moment ago, I came across this delightful article: Laënnec, le médecin breton célébré par Google and realized that both pieces address the same person! I have a French 4 class at 10:30 this morning and I think we’ll end up reading both articles 🙂 We’ve been discussing love while watching À la folie, pas du tout, so a talk about the heart will fit in nicely. I know next to nothing about the invention of the stethoscope, so was happy to learn about it in both English and French. I hope my students feel the same way!
