Are there really two cultures in the health debate? Towards a new understanding of autonomy

Ignaas Devisch UGent (2011) APORIA. 3(1). p.42-44
abstract
Although at first glance current debates on health seem to be infected by a gap between ‘two cultures’, focusing on them would hinder us from seeing the real deadlock at a more fundamental level. Both ‘cultures’ presuppose heteronomy as a bad thing that should be avoided. Although we agree upon autonomy as a desirable objective, heteronomy is not only unavoidable; it is not necessarily undesirable either. Instead of neglecting this or understanding it as the sheer negative side of autonomy, we should deal with it in a positive way and develop frameworks to integrate heteronomy into health theory and policy.
