    Establishing a middle range position in the theory of health2007In: Medicine, Health care and Philosophy, ISSN 1386-7423, E-ISSN 1572-8633, Vol. 10, no 1, p. 29-32Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The relationship between individual and population health is partially built on the broad dichotomization of medicine into clinical medicine and public health. Potential drawbacks of current views include seeing both individual and population health as absolute and independent concepts. I will argue that the relationship between individual and population health is largely relative and dynamic. Their interrelated dynamism derives from a causally defined life course perspective on health determination starting from an individual’s conception through growth, development and participation in the collective till death, all seen within the context of an adaptive society. Indeed, it will become clear that neither individual nor population health is identifiable or even definable without informative contextualization within the other. For instance, a person’s health cannot be seen in isolation but must be placed in the rich contextual web such as the socioeconomic circumstances and other health determinants of where they were conceived, born, bred, and how they shaped and were shaped by their environment and communities, especially given the prevailing population health exposures over their lifetime. We cannot discuss the “what” and “how much” of individual and population health until we know the cumulative trajectories of both, using appropriate causal language.

    Health2006In: World Encyclopedia of Disability / [ed] Gary L. Albrecht, Thousands Oak Calif: Sage Press , 2006, p. 820-826Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    SAGE Reference is proud to announce the five-volume Encyclopedia of Disability. This encyclopedia represents the first attempt to bring an authoritative reference resource to the many faces of disability. More than 500 world-renowned scholars have written over 1,000 entries -in a clear, accessible style-with the desire to bring all students, researchers, and interested readers closer to the daily experience of disability. Volumes 1 - 4 cover disability A to Z, including a reader's guide, comprehensive bibliography, and index. Volume 5 contains a wealth of primary source documents in the field of disability. The Encyclopedia of Disability is a must-have reference for all academic libraries, large public libraries, and any social science, medical, legal, or governmental reference collections. Non-governmental organizations, charitable foundations, and law firms will also want to add this set to their collections.

    Health as natural function2003In: Dimensions of health and health promotion / [ed] Per-Erik Liss och Lennart Nordenfelt, Amsterdam: Rodopi publishers , 2003, p. 37-54Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This book contains scholarly contributions to several current debates in the philosophy of medicine and health care regarding the nature of health and health promotion, concepts and measurements of mental illness, phenomenological conceptions of health and illness, allocation of health care resources, criteria for proper medical science, the clinical meeting, and ethical constraints in such a meeting.

    With one exception, the authors in this book are or have been teachers or graduate students at the interdisciplinary Department of Health and Society (Tema H) at Linköping University, Sweden. While all the texts have a philosophical focus, many other disciplines have influenced the choice of specific perspectives. The university backgrounds of the authors range from medicine, psychology, sociology, and religion to philosophy. What binds the authors together is their deep interest in the theory of medicine and in the pursuit of a philosophy of humanistic medicine and health care.

    Abstract [en]

    This book is a contribution to the current philosophical discussion on the nature of health and illness. It contains a comparative analysis and reevaluation of four influential contemporary theories in this field. These are the biostatistical theory of Christopher Boorse which represents the mainstream thinking in medicine, and three versions of a holistic and normative understanding of health and illness which are the theories of Lawrie Reznek, K. W. M.

    Hemmets värden: Om hälsa, livskvalitet och autonomi2007In: Hemmets vårdetik: Om vård av äldre i livets slutskede / [ed] Gunilla Silfverberg, Lund: Studentlitteratur , 2007, 1, p. 67-89Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vård i hemmet blir allt vanligare. Olika vårdformer utvecklas och professionella vårdare och medicinsk apparatur kommer innanför hemmets dörr. Det ger större möjligheter än tidigare att både ge och få vård hemma. Hem är ett laddat begrepp och rikt på associationer, oftast av positivt slag. Men hemmet kan också för människor som saknar kraft och ork utgöra platsen för ensamhet, vanmakt och isolering. Knappt hälften av alla som dör årligen avslutar sina dagar i det egna hemmet eller inom särskilda boendeformer. Vilka funktioner och värden representerar det egna hemmet för människor i en sen fas av livet? Är det alltid möjligt och önskvärt att dessa förs över från det privata hemmet till ett institutionsboende? Dessa frågor och problem diskuteras i denna antologi. De är aktuella för dem som behöver vård och omsorg i det egna hemmet liksom för dem som är i färd med att flytta till ett annat boende. De är också angelägna för dem som har till professionell uppgift att vårda och ge omsorg och har sin givna plats i vårdutbildningar. De berör också beslutsfattare och politiker, som ytterst formulerar vårdens mål och intentioner.

    Abstract [en]

    Medicine raises numerous philosophical issues. This volume approaches the philosophy of medicine from the broad naturalist perspective. This holds that philosophy must be continuous with, constrained by, and relevant to empirical results of the natural and social sciences. The upshot is a unique volume that ties medicine to contemporary issues in philosophy of science and metaphysics.

    Om kronisk sjukdom och livskvalitet2005In: Sjukdomsvärldar: Om människans erfarenheter av kroppslig ohälsa / [ed] Bengt Richt, Gunilla Tegern, Lund: Studentlitteratur , 2005, 1, p. 305-322Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

      

    En stor andel av befolkningen i de västerländska samhällena och en växande andel världen över lever med långvarig kroppslig ohälsa. Den utbredda förekomsten har en djupgående påverkan på sättet att leva, både bland de redan sjuka och bland dem som är friska. Kunskap om den kroppsliga ohälsans personliga, sociala och kulturella dimensioner är därför av grundläggande betydelse för förståelsen av tendenser och processer i samtiden.

    Boken bygger på berättelser från personer som själva lever med olika former av långvarig och ibland svår kroppslig ohälsa. Några kapitel är rättframt rapporterande, medan andra ansluter till sådana förståelseramar som fenomenologi, symbolisk interaktionism och analytisk filosofi. Texten ansluter sig till den internationella vetenskapliga tradition som under senare tid har försökt ge den levda erfarenheten av ohälsa ett språk och en röst, i opposition mot eller som komplement till ett rent biomedicinskt perspektiv. Den är utpräglat tvärvetenskaplig och skriven av personer med olika ämnesbakgrund, alltifrån omvårdnadsvetenskap, filosofi, sociologi och pedagogik till sjukgymnastik och arbetsterapi.

    Sjukdomsvärldar vänder sig till alla med intresse för vad det kan innebära att leva med kroppslig ohälsa i vardagslivet och för hur de möjliga innebörderna formas av mer övergripande sociala och kulturella omständigheter. Den tvärvetenskapliga inriktningen gör boken väl användbar på såväl olika vårdutbildningar som kurser i både samhällsvetenskap och humaniora

    On health, ability and activity: Comments on some basic notions in the ICF2006In: Disability and Rehabilitation, ISSN 0963-8288, E-ISSN 1464-5165, Vol. 28, no 23, p. 1461-1465Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose. The purpose of this article is to highlight and at the same time criticize the holistic view of health expressed in the "International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF)". Particular attention will be paid to the idea suggested in the ICF that not only the ability to perform a specified action but also its actual performance is included in the person's health. My argument intends to show that this is an untenable position. Method. The theoretical platform of this paper is philosophical action theory. My argument makes particular use of the distinctions between ability, opportunity, activity and will. My analysis also uses some insights from the contemporary philosophical discussion of health concepts. Conclusions. Ability (or capacity) and its opposite disability (or incapacity) are essential ingredients in the implicit philosophy of health of the ICF. However, the ICF also puts an emphasis on the actual performance of actions. This is entailed by the performance qualifier that is included in the ICF. I give some arguments for questioning the relevance of this qualifier if it is intended to have a place in the concept of health or have a general function for decisions in health care or rehabilitation. Instead I suggest the introduction of an opportunity qualifier, which could fulfill some of the purposes intended for the performance qualifier.

    On Health and Natural Functions2002In: Health and Quality of Life: Philosophical, Medical and Cultural Aspects / [ed] Antje Gimmler; Christian Lenk; Gerhard Aumüller, Münster: LIT Verlag , 2002, p. 19-26Chapter 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.

    On the Logic of Health Concepts2004In: Handbook of Bioethics: Taking stock of the field from a philosophical perspective / [ed] George Khushf, Dordrecht: Kluwer Academic Publishers , 2004, 1, p. 205-222Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This book is for those interested in an extensive review of the field of bioethics. It is for philosophers who wish to understand the core conceptual issues in health care ethics, and for bioethicists who wish to better understand classical problems in philosophy that have a bearing on health care ethics.  The Handbook of Bioethics: Taking Stock of the Field from a Philosophical Perspective: presents a comprehensive survey of bioethics in one volume; has 27 of the most prominent scholars in the field take stock of the issues they helped define; contains essays that outline areas where future research is needed; identifies potential areas for fruitful collaboration between traditional philosophers and bioethicists; is an ideal text for graduate or upper level undergraduate courses.

    On the Place of Fuzzy Health in Medical Theory2000In: Journal of Medicine and Philosophy, ISSN 0360-5310, E-ISSN 1744-5019, Vol. 25, no 5, p. 639-649Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This commentary on Sadegh-Zadeh's article ‘Fuzzy health, illness and disease,’ has its focus on the philosophical background for applying fuzzy logic to medical theory. I concentrate on four issues. First, I contest some of Sadegh-Zadeh's statements on the present state of the theory of medicine, in particular with regard to assumptions ascribed to contemporary theorists. Second, I consider Sadegh-Zadeh's interesting idea that a person can have a disease to varying degrees, from not having it at all to having it completely. I argue that there are difficulties pertaining to the definition of particular diseases, which obstruct the application of this idea. The following two points concern medical semantics and principles for definition in general. I take issue with Sadegh-Zadeh's description of the correct procedure for definition. I also contest his unconditional proposal for a social definition of health, illness and disease.

    Rationality and Compulsion: Applying Action Theory to Psychiatry2007 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Rationality and Compulsion presents a unique examination of mental illness - derived from philosophical action theory. Delusion is common to many mental disorders, resulting in actions that, though perhaps rational to the individual, might seem entirely inappropriate or harmful to others. So what is it that causes these actions, and why do they continue? The theory expounded in this book shows how the key to this problem might be compulsion.This book presents a new analysis of the notion of compulsion - developed from action theory. The books starts with an introduction to action theory (for the benefit of non-philosophers). It then shows how insights from action theory can help us better understand mental illness, before developing an analysis of compulsion that emphasizes the element of unavoidability. The book argues that what is fundamentally disturbing to the person suffering from delusion is not so much the fact that the disorder tends to lead to irrational actions but rather the fact that he or she is unable to avoid performing these actions. The individual is or feels compelled to act in the way he or she does. The book contains some concrete illustrations of this idea as applied to several psychiatric diagnoses, such as paranoia, phobia, and psychopathy.Rationality and Compulsion is a highly original new work from a leading figure in the philosophy and psychiatry movement. It will advance our understanding of mental illness, and be valuable for psychiatrists, psychologists, as well as philosophers.
