Die Philosophie der Medizin wird gegenwartig heftig diskutiert - und zwar mit Recht: zu kontrar sind ihre Heilsbotschaften, therapeutischen Methoden und sozialen Ziele. Die sogenannte naturwissenschaftliche Medizin - etwas respektlos "Defekt-Reparaturmedizin" genannt - erkennt Krankheit vor allem als Storung, die es zu beseitigen, zu reparieren gelte und lat den Menschen als Subjekt auer acht. Die sogenannte humanwissenschaftliche Medizin demgegenuber sieht Krankheit als Lebenskrise, welche es sozial zu erkennen und subjektiv zu verantworten gelte. Sie vernachlassigt die empirische Seite. Gesundheitspolitik wie Wissenschaftstheorie fordern eine Integration dieser kontraren philosophischen Ansatze. Namhafte europaische Philosophen und Mediziner zeigen hier aktuelle wissenschaftliche Wege zur Bewaltigung dieses folgenreichen Dilemmas in der gegenwartigen Medizin. Das Buch wendet sich an kritische Mediziner, an Lehrer der Medizin und Gesundheitspolitiker. Es dient auch dazu, eine wissenschaftliche Brucke zwischen der Klinischen Medizin und der Alternativmedizin aufzuzeigen.
