At the time of their first publication, McKeown’s theories flew in the face of accepted wisdom which saw scientific advance and better medicine as the principal drivers of better health. His controversial hypothesis helped revolutionise how the health of populations was viewed.
Yet another very helpful and articulate introduction to an important concept, argument or theory in the "medical humanities lexicon." I know very little about McKeown's thesis, so the bibliography should also prove useful. Thank you.
