2002 (English)In: Health and Quality of Life: Philosophical, Medical and Cultural Aspects / [ed] Antje Gimmler; Christian Lenk; Gerhard Aumüller, Münster: LIT Verlag , 2002, 19-26 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

How could one define health and disease? On what presuppositions, and ought we look for such definitions? Does quality of life inherit a subjective or objective evaluation? Are health and quality of life culture dependent concepts? Under the conditions of technologically advanced medicine and the common tendency towards a hedonistic lifestyle such questions come into focus. Hence, one question is of special relevance: which role does health play in our quality of life? The contributions of this interdisciplinary volume aim at the clarification of the various concepts in use. International  scholars and scientists outline the framework for a more comprehensive and demanding concept of health and quality of life including philosophical and cultural aspects as well as medical and psychological dimensions.
