PHIL 186 Philosophy of Medicine

Fall 2017, 6-week Course
Starting October 16, 2017
Monday, Wednesday: 12:00 – 1:15pm

How does medicine look at and see the body? What kind of body does it envision, and what the means by which it locates within the space of the body that which threatens the body's organic unity? This six-week course inquires into Western medical perception, diagnostic practices, and metaphorical uses (abuses) of those practices.

Instructor: Osman Nemli
