The current perception held by many persons about health care has been affected by a neo-liberal economic philosophy. This outlook, however, is built on a premise that is treated as passe by much of contemporary philosophy. A new economic viewpointbased on community solidaritythat changes how health care is conceptualized and evaluated is gaining some credibility. In this article, this shift is examined, and more detailed plans are called for to rethink health care along the lines suggested by this new, more community-oriented model.
