• After Charcot died in 1893, the students of his immediate circle did not fare well academically in the French medical system. Fatigue and bitterness toward the authoritarian Charcot may have contributed to the change in the scientific and social ambience of the Salpêtrière of Paris in the generation after Charcot died. Clearly, however, the faculty were not invested in energetically overturning the system that Charcot had established, and their choice of Fulgence Raymond as Charcot's successor was an effective means of permitting a passive waning in the Salpêtrière's magnetic influence in world neurology.
