So I ended up with a very small book, with the dimensions of around 3x5 inches and weighed approximately 1 pound, by Culpepper published in 1751 titled, “Complete and Experienced Midwife.” This book was probably used by lower-classed midwifes during the 18th century as a guide to child bearing and proper remedies for the diseases.

Traveling as a means of discovery makes for a new generation of thinkers to continue leading the human race towards viewing our world through a more holistic lens. French philosopher Auguste Comte believed that; “valid knowledge about the world can be derived only from sense experience or knowing the world through the senses of sight, touch, taste, smell, and hearing from making empirical associations” (Ferrante 10).
