Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Medicine, Religion, and the Body contains the table of contents, a note on contributors and the acknowledgements. The way in which the moral and political discussion is framed, limited both to a particular conception of the body, and a particular approach to religion. The approach to the body is that of the individual, limited organism, and the approach to religious values is an example of the privatisation of religious belief to a preference. The objective of the book is to broaden these horizons. The book addresses this issue through presenting different disciplinary and religious perspectives to medicine, religion, and the ethics of illness and well-being.
