This dissertation analyzes French doctor's involvement in debates and initiatives concerning physical education between 1741 and 1888. Based on a prosopographic inventory of those physicians who participated in the development of physical education, it explores the variety of their discourses with respect to the practice of physical exercises. This investigation relies on a large selection of primary sources: works devoted to medical gymnastic, but also medical treatises related to anatomy, hygiene, therapeutics, physiology, orthopedics, etc. The sources also include articles from the major medical dictionaries and journals of the nineteenth century. These documents are used to explore the socio-scientific mechanisms that underlay physicians' commitment to physical education.
Three chronological periods structure medical engagement in the area of physical education. Between 1741 and 1817 the thesis traces the emergence of a questioning; the years 1817 to 1847 represent an « orthopedic moment » in the development of gymnastics; finally between 1847 and 1888, one witnesses a diversification of the legitimation process between medicine and gymnastics.
