abstract
One of the main objectives of this article is to demonstrate that the onanism discourse is a constitutive part of the history of science. The authors argue that culturalist and externalist explanations of the phenomenon of masturbation are incomplete, and, on the basis of the theory of science of Thomas Nickles, they propose an inner-scientific explanation. The article thus considers almost 200 years of the history of onanism discourse starting from the famous publication of Samuel-Auguste Tissot (1760). Particular attention is given to the turning point that occurred after about 1810, when scientific psychology brought about the end of the medical onanism discourse.
