About This Book

With The Grey Zone of Health and Illness, Alan Blum offers a new perspective, outlining a highly nuanced theoretical approach to health, illness, suffering and disease and the ethical and aesthetic implications of medical practice. Drawing on a range of thinkers from Plato to Lacan, the book identifies the Grey Zone as the persistence and function of ambiguity in everyday life that requires a complete rethinking of health and sickness, self-governance and negligence. A heady, cutting-edge intervention in a critical area of society, The Grey Zone of Health and Illness will have wide ramifications in the academy and beyond.
