Reason, the life-world, and health care delivery

Abstract

Reason is illustrated to be conceived traditionally in an abstract manner. The attempt has been made to make rationality appear value-neutral and universal. In the end, however, this version of reason is ineffective, because the human element is overlooked. Contemporary philosophy is shown to have abandoned this ethereal view of knowledge and reason. Furthermore, interventions that are based on this shift in theory are more socially sensitive and appropriate.
