Development of the connection between spirituality and medicine : historical and current issues in clinics
|Abstract:||The incorporation of spirituality into Western clinical culture is quite recent. In fact, it began scarcely four decades ago. In spite of its recent institutionalization, this phenomenon cannot be understood to its fullest extent without examining the conditions that made it possible. Some are ancient, others are recent. My aim is first to identify and explore some of these conditions, internal as well as external to the biomedical realm, that can be linked to this phenomenon, and secondly, to discuss some crucial issues for the praxis of spiritual care.|
