Description: The biomedical sciences, the practice of medicine, and health care policy employ concepts of health, disease, disability, and defect in explanatory accounts, intermixing factual claims with moral and other evaluations. This course explores the interplay of evaluation and explanation in medicine's models of disease and health. Previously offered as PHIL 314. Mutually exclusive with PHIL 314, credit cannot be earned for both classes.
