On the epistemology of risk : language, logic and social science.
International conference on the social sciences and medicine. Peebles (GBR), 1992/09/14.
« Risk » is a widely used concept in literatures related to health, health care and medicine.
In recent decades, three bodies of literature have emerged in which 'risk'is the primary focus of concern: Health Risk Appraisal, the Risk Approach and Risk Analysis/Assessment/Management.
These literatures overlook important concepts and theoretical developments in contemporary social science.
They also lack conceptual coherence.
Reduction of incoherence will require re-examination of the epistemology of risk in relation to both its language and its logic in light of developments in social science.
