Part of the Philosophy and Medicine book series (PHME, volume 72)


In an attempt to introduce and situate the papers collected in this volume, it is worthwhile at the outset to explain a few things about the title of the volume: Why did we bring together the notions of person, society and value in a volume devoted to a critical analysis of the concept of health? What is meant to be conveyed by the term ‘personalist’, and by the term ‘concept’? Was it necessary to include the open-ended expression ‘towards’ in our title?
