📙 Life the Human Being between Life and Death: A Dialogue between Medicine and Philosophy: Recurrent Issues and New Approaches by Zbigniew Zalewski (auth.), Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka, Zbigniew Zalewski (eds.) — free pdf


Medicine's crucial concern with health is perennial, but its reflection, concepts, means change with the advance of science and social life. We present here a fascinating panorama of current medical discussions with their philosophical underpinnings, and queries as they have evolved from the past. The role of Tymieniecka's phenomenology of life is brought forth as the system of philosophical reference.
