Is Medicine Still Good For Us? A primer for the 21st Century


Is Medicine Still Good For Us?

The sophistication of modern medicine is an exceptional feat in which many of us benefit from unpredcidented levels of care. Yet medical progress comes at a price: resistance to anti-biotics, ever-mutating superbugs and the unintended yet devasating consequence of prescribing opiates are all part of today’s medical landscape. Is the natural human experience being over ‘medicalized’ as we seek pharmaceutical remedies for every kind of suffering? Are its astronomical costs furthering global inequality? Where has modern medicine failed us and how does it need to change? This inclusive volumes interogates the economics and ethics of modern practices and the impact they have on our lives.
