Body Matters: A Phenomenology of Sickness, Disease, and Illness


Samenvatting Written in a jargon-free way, Body Matters provides a clear and accessible phenomenological critique of core assumptions in mainstream biomedicine and explores ways in which health and illness are experienced and interpreted differently in various socio-historical situations.

By drawing on the disciplines of literature, cultural anthropology, sociology, medical history, and philosophy, the authors attempt to dismantle common presuppositions we have about human afflictions and examine how the methods of phenomenology open up new ways to interpret the body and to re-envision therapy. Recensie s Body Matters is a unique and fascinating account of human afflictions in a world dominated by biomedical notions of disease and illness.

Body Matters : Kevin A. Aho :

In a truly interdisciplinary collaboration between philosophy and sociology, James and Kevin Aho use the insights of phenomenology to help us see ourselves and our afflictions in a more thoughtful way. Their writing is lively and engaging while their observations are deep and important. This is the most insightful study of today's experience of health matters I have yet seen. It is unique in its attempt to apply Husserl and Heidegger to health and illness It is elegantly written and filled with numerous examples illustrating the argumentation.

It brings together, even if in a much simplified way, a set of intuitions originating mainly in Edmund Husserl's phenomenology, neatly synthesizes and applies them to modern biomedicine with a critical intent.
