Plough Quarterly No. 17- The Soul of Medicine Summary


Plough Quarterly No. 17- The Soul of Medicine by Stephanie Sadana

We need a vision of how medicine might serve the good of the whole human person: the body's health, but also the health of that "piece of divinity in us." Medicine, so long as you don't need it, is a tangential part of life, just one more profession among others. Until that is, a loved one suffers an accident or falls sick. Then, suddenly, medicine is quite literally, a matter of life or death. Medicine is also big business. Doctors have been reclassified as "service providers," and patients are "clients." Such commercialism breeds false incentives and inequalities, even in nations. We need a vision of how medicine might serve the good of the whole human person: the body's health, but also the health of that "piece of divinity in us." We need love and reverence for humans as they are, not humans as technology may someday engineer them to be. Jesus, the healer from Nazareth, showed what it means to love the imperfect, the frail, the average. The glory of the medical profession is that it is dedicated to these works of mercy. In today's money-driven healthcare industry, such tasks are often poorly rewarded. Yet they're at the heart of medicine's original mission. Also in this issue: original poetry by Suzanne Harlan Heyd; reviews of new books by Barbara Ehrenreich, Ryan T. Anderson, Beth Macy, and David R. Montgomery and Anne Bikle; and art by Tim Lowly, Michelangelo, Julian Peters, Wanjin Gim, Scott Goldsmith, Jan Mostaert, Suleiman Mansour, Cecile Massie, Peter Doig, Erin Hanson, and Jason Landsel. Plough Quarterly features stories, ideas, and culture for people eager to put their faith into action. Each issue brings you in-depth articles, interviews, poetry, book reviews, and art to help you put Jesus' message into practice and find common cause with others.
