Description:
This is a theoretical work on the grand scale, an original synthesis of many disciplines in the social studies of medicine. Looking at human sickness and healing through the lens of evolutionary theory, Horacio Fabrega Jr. presents not only the vulnerability to disease and injury but also the need to show and communicate sickness and to seek and provide healing as innate biological traits grounded in evolution.
