Abstract

Modern medicine as a kind of cultural power, is not only taken as a tool of the western colonists, but also turns into one of the goals for the local colonized people to pursue modernization. How medical science developed under the impact of colonialism is the mainly discussed problem in this article. Since the western modernity was transmitted into Guangzhou under the semi-colony background, this article analyzes the medicine advertisements in Canton Times and the various social relationships of its advertiser (company or individual). It is found that the transmission of western medical science was conducted by the colonists and meanwhile was accompanied with a dynamic process of learning, imitation and revision by the local.
