Brief description of your activity focus
Philosophy, epistemology and ethics about medicine, osteopathy, alternative medicine and healing
Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
We are an interdisciplinary center of researches about anthropology, philosophy and ethics about medicine
and others therapies today. The growing importance of complementary medicine in Western Countries,
and the coexistence of biomedicine and traditional practices in South Countries are places of very
important challenges: What is medicine? What is the relation between rationality and belief in therapeutic
work? What is healing? Measure and images are they the only one way of knowledge about human being
and human body? Is ethic a way of evaluation for alternative practices?
As the director of the center, my own expertise is in medicine, theology, history and ethics.
