La Lumière médicale : les illusions de la prévention by Norbert Bensaïd( Book )

18 editions published between 1981 and 1988 in French and Italian and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La médecine se sert de l'idée magique de prévention pour assurer sa maîtrise sur notre vie. Elle exploite nos peurs, elle utilise les pressions exercées par l'économie, et elle laisse entendre que, si nous suivions sa loi, nous serions sauvés. Pourtant, ni son savoir ni son pouvoir ne l'autorisent à faire cette promesse, ni à nous dicter une vie dominée par un seul souci de survivre. Elle ne peut abolir le risque et elle ne peut y prétendre sans menacer nos libertés. C'est contre ce langage de la peur et de la dépendance que Norbert Bensaïd, tout en respectant les acquis de la médecine, élève une protestation documentée et passionnée. [Editeur]

Le illusioni della medicina : la prevenzione come alibi by Norbert Bensaïd( Book )

2 editions published between 1988 and 1997 in Italian and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'autore critica il potere medico e gli eccessi della prevenzione come regola di vita totale in una società dove la salute è l'obiettivo principale. La prevenzione, nel suo intento di responsabilizzare i cittadini in anticipo, diventa un obbligo. La libertà dell individuo viene così minacciata dal bisogno di sicurezza, parallelamente la sicurezza è a sua volta minacciata dalla preoccupazione ossessiva che se ne ha. Le critiche volte al potere medico si riferiscono al ruolo sempre più importante che la medicina ha assunto nella società, fino a svolgere il ruolo di una religione. Secondo l'autore la medicina non è scienza della vita, ma solamente scienza della malattia, malgrado ciò è costretta a rispondere a domande che oltrepassano le sue competenze. In materia di prevenzione, l'autore pone l'accento sulle responsabilità sociali in antitesi a quelle individuali che entrano in gioco quando si tratta di cambiare i comportamenti a rischio. Inoltre tratta della distinzione tra l'efficacia e l'efficienza della medicina, e la difficile scelta tra il rischio che rappresenta la malattia e il pericolo del trattamento. Si tratta di cercare di dimostrare quale uso potrebbe fare la medicina del suo sapere e di quale profitto potrebbe trarre dal progresso. Il testo, edito in lingua originale francese nel 1981, presenta una discussione ancora attuale. Katja Delang (Dezember 19976)
