[SR: 1219338], Paperback, [EAN: 9780521425766], Cambridge University Press, Cambridge University Press, Book, [PU: Cambridge University Press], Cambridge University Press, Medicine supposedly offers a scientific account of the human body and of illness, and it follows that scientific medicine treats all forms of folk medicine as little more than superstitious practices. Professor Good argues that this impoverished perspective neglects many facets of Western medical practice and obscures its kinship with healing in other traditions.

[SR: 754907], Paperback, [EAN: 9780521425766], Cambridge University Press, Cambridge University Press, Book, [PU: Cambridge University Press], 1993-12-09, Cambridge University Press, Biomedicine is often thought to provide a scientific account of the human body and of illness. In this view, non-Western and folk medical systems are regarded as systems of 'belief' and subtly discounted. This is an impoverished perspective for understanding illness and healing across cultures, one that neglects many facets of Western medical practice and obscures its kinship with healing in other traditions. Drawing on his research in several American and Middle Eastern medical settings, in this 1993 book Professor Good develops a critical, anthropological account of medical knowledge and practice. He shows how physicians and healers enter and inhabit distinctive worlds of meaning and experience. He explores how stories or illness narratives are joined with bodily experience in shaping and responding to human suffering and argues that moral and aesthetic considerations are present in routine medical practice as in other forms of healing., 270767, Medical & Healthcare Practitioners, 270768, Ancillary Services, 270792, Basic Medical Science, 276871, Encyclopaedias, 270842, Internal Medicine, 270893, Nursing, 270906, Other Branches of Medicine, 270952, Surgery, 74, Health, Family & Lifestyle, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 4119261, Academic Sociology, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 276456, Ethnography & Ethnology, 276412, Anthropology, 276411, Social Sciences, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 276413, Social & Cultural, 276412, Anthropology, 276411, Social Sciences, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 276522, Sociology, 496634, Family & Social Groups, 276303, Law & Disorder, 496644, Methodology & Research, 276447, Population & Demography, 276482, Social Issues, 276530, Sociological Theories, 496640, Sociology of Work, 276411, Social Sciences, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
