 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
I have a long standing research interest in the implications of dualist or ‘bifurcated’ thought for medicine and for social-scientific approaches to medicine. Theoretically, this interest has led me to engage with aspects of the history and philosophy of science and medicine, and with questions relating to historical epistemology, constructionism, and non-essentialist/organicist/process ontology . Empirically, my work analyses how dualism has been problematised in medicine in the context of a number of historical and contemporary examples: my doctoral work focused on psychosomatic medicine; more recent work focuses on medical humanities/narrative medicine. I am particularly interested in the notions of social, political and/or moral progress implicit in these practices, and in how their proponents articulate their relation to the status quo.
