Postmodernism Sociology & Health book.

Nick J. Fox. Postmodernism and post-structuralism challenge fundamental positions in social theory. This book sets out of the components of a postmodern social theory of health and healing, deriving from theorists such as Derrida, Deleuze and Guattari, Foucault, Cixous and Kristeva. The body of the patient is inscribed by discourses of professional "care" as well as by pain and suffering. Rejecting simple determinism, the author explores the character of this power - and how it may be, and is, resisted

Post-structuralism, postmodernism and health Post-structuralist and postmodern approaches to health, illness and medicine have focused on the interactions between embodiment, power, knowledge and identity. Unlike structuralist analyses, these perspectives look at the micropolitics of power as it acts upon the actions and interactions of health professionals, patients and others in health settings.

Postmodernism and poststructuralism challenge fundamental positions in social theory. This book sets out some of the components of a postmodern social theory of health and healing, deriving from theorists including Derrida, Deleuze and Guattari, Foucault, Cixous and Kristeva.

Nicholas J. Fox observes that the knowledge of the medical profession about the body, illness and health supplies the basis for medical dominance. The body of the patient is inscribed by discourses of professional `care,' an interaction which subjectifies the patient. Fox explores the character of this power - and how it may be, and is, resisted. The book illustrates with detailed examples how the organization of health care and the caring relationship itself are sites for this contestation of power.

Elements of feminist theory, and Derridean concepts of diffÉrance and intertextuality, supply the framework for the politics and ethics of the postmodern position on health. Deleuze and Guattari's radical challenge to psychoanalysis and familial repetitions within the healer/patient contact allows a re-reading of central ideas in medical sociology.

While focusing upon the possibilities of postmodern social theory, the book demands a reappraisal of issues of structure, identity and knowledge in modernist medical sociology. Modernist sociology, Fox suggests, has been complicit in the creation of `the patient,' and of 'health' and 'illness.'

Written with an emphasis on accessibility, this book explores the practical consequences of postmodern theory as well as familiarizing the reader with the concepts of postmodernism.
