The secular approach to conscience includes psychologicalphysiologicalsociologicalhumanitarianand authoritarian views. Charles Darwin considered that conscience evolved in humans to resolve conflicts between competing natural impulses-some about self-preservation but others about safety of a family or community; the claim of conscience to moral authority emerged from the "greater duration of impression of social instincts" in the struggle for survival. Thus, nationalism is invoked in conscience to quell tribal conflict and the notion of a Brotherhood of Man is invoked to quell national conflicts. Yet such crowd drives may not only overwhelm but redefine individual conscience.
Received Jul 7; Accepted Nov Abstract The relationship between individual and population health is partially built on the broad dichotomization of medicine into clinical medicine and public health. Potential drawbacks of current views include seeing both individual and population health as absolute and independent concepts.
I will argue that the relationship between individual and population health is largely relative and dynamic. Indeed, it will become clear that neither individual nor population health is identifiable or even definable without informative contextualization within the other. Is population health merely the opposite of individual health?
Do both represent core descriptions of health with respect to the individuals and societies? Arguably, the birth of public health ethics as distinguishable from clinical ethics also rests on this dichotomization of medicine see Beauchamp; Dawson and Verweij Is it possible to study the relationship between individual and population health entirely in terms of the individual or the collective?
And if at all, could the same concept of health be easily mapped onto the population level as at the individual level? This article will argue that neither individual nor population health is identifiable or even definable without informativecontextualization within the other.
Indeed, the complementary relationship between individual and population health evokes important socially relevant causal inferences about both having the duality of being determinants and outcomes over time, and within and between places or societies.
The causal interpretations accorded both types of health flow directly from and are foundational to their definitional and measurement concerns. In those instances, the term healthcare is often used to imply both personal medical care and public health. Within the normativist theory, there are weak and strong normativist views Khushf The naturalist theory of health, which claims to be descriptive, value-free and consistent with evolutionary theory, states that an individual is completely healthy if and only if all her organs function normally, that is, given a statistically normal environment, her organs make at least their statistically normal contribution to her survival or to the human species survival Boorse; Schramme Thus, a healthy person is easily identified through objective medical investigation.
This latter theory depicts a continuum where health accommodates disease, takes a holistic contextual approach, and instrumentalizes health in the larger scheme of vital life goals. Interestingly both theories of health, to some extent, see disease in terms of relevant organ dysfunction.
Although engaging in a debate on the merits of each theory of health is beyond the scope of this article, I want to point out that both theories appear to take the context or circumstances or environment of any health-disease continuum as merely observed or passive, not active, interventional or causal.
This imbalance is reflected in a recent attempt to characterize the origins of human disease Mackenbach In the final analysis, human disease is attributable to the dependence of organisms on a fundamentally hostile external environment and to unfortunate evolutionary legacies.
To be sure, there is more to health than mere absence of disease.Difference Between Rights and Responsibilities • Categorized under Language | Difference Between Rights and Responsibilities.
