This book is in line with the collective work undertaken in 1995, the history of medical thought in the West (three volumes edited by Mirko D. Grmek, Seuil, 1995, 1997, 1999). It reports the deployment of multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary research medical thinking and addresses the current discussions and controversies over health policy. Due to the development of theoretical knowledge and technical innovations, the very notion of care in its social, economic, but also epistemic, is questioned. Medical thinking is not limited to biological data, and specifically human and social components are explored and surveyed here from a historical perspective that considers the discoveries of the last century. Cet ouvrage s'inscrit dans le fil du travail collectif entrepris en 1995, l' Histoire de la pensée médicale en Occident (trois volumes sous la direction de Mirko D. Grmek, Seuil, 1995, 1997, 1999). Il rend compte du déploiement des recherches pluridisciplinaires et transdisciplinaires de la pensée médicale et aborde les discussions et controverses actuelles sur les politiques de santé. Du fait du développement des connaissances théoriques et des innovations techniques, la notion même de soin, sous ses aspects sociaux, économiques, mais aussi épistémiques, se trouve questionnée. La pensée médicale ne saurait se limiter aux données biologiques, et ses composantes spécifiquement humaines et sociales sont explorées et interrogées ici dans une perspective historique qui tient compte des découvertes du dernier siècle.
