Traduction en anglais : Anthropological medicine in medical education.
Medicine can be considered to be science of the human being.
The science of human beings must include the individual as the subject.
Present day medical science, as it is practiced and taught underlies the paradigm of natural science, which is a result of 17th century epistemology.
According to Descartes, the object of study exists independently of the scientist, who attempts to describe its quality and behavior.
In the 20th century physicists such as Einstein and Heisenberg discovered that the observed cannot be viewed independently of the observer.
One develops a hypothesis on the basis of one's experience with the aim of gaining knowledge about the object of interest in order to describe its qualities and behavior.
Anthropological Medicine is related to this philosophy.
It extends the concept of Psychosomatic Medicine by taking milieu, values, history and the body of the human being with respect to sensuality, emotionality, affectiveness and achievement into consideration.
The goal of the Viktor von Weizsäcker Society is to contribute to the theory of medicine on which medical education could be based.
