Medical specialization and advancements in technology are without doubt humanity’s accomplishment, and as a result we benefit from it. Nevertheless, we are still faced with new anthropological questions in our changing world.
What is medicine in our daily lives and life in general? How do we understand such problems in our changing world and how do we appropriately engage in them? This book is designed to allow us to reflect on ourselves amongst these questions and also to consider the people we met on various medicine and real life scenes as our neighbors that go beyond border and regional characteristics.
