Reviews

"The essays are bonded together by the desire to call the philosophy of medicine . . . into multicausal interactionism that gives systematic causative status to the psychological, sociological, cultural, environmental, and, ultimately, transcendent dimensions of the human complex. . . . [S]uperior . . . in its intention to point the way for a medicine and theology dialogue that is a special case of science and religion interacting." - Zygon Journal of Religion and Science

"Important because it lays a foundation for thinking about what a postmodern medicine might look like . . ." - Process Studies
