9781844657537: Illness: The Cry of the Flesh (The Art of Living)

What is illness? Is it a physiological dysfunction, a social label, or a way of experiencing the world? How do the physical, social and emotional worlds of a person change when they become ill? And can there be well-being within illness? In this remarkable and thought-provoking book, Havi Carel explores these questions by weaving together the personal story of her own serious illness with insights and reflections drawn from her work as a philosopher. Carel's fresh approach to illness raises some uncomfortable questions about how we all - whether healthcare professionals or not - view the ill and challenges us to become more thoughtful. 'Illness' unravels the tension between the universality of illness and its intensely private, often lonely, nature. It offers a new way of looking at a matter that affects every one of us.

About the Author:

Havi Carel is Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Bristol, UK.

Review:

"A masterpiece. Havi Carel has fashioned a uniquely authentic account of the lived experience of illness. It should be read – and re-read – by everyone who is professionally involved with illness, who is ill, or is likely to become ill; which is to say, by all of us." Raymond Tallis

"One of the most profoundly moving (as well as academically worthwhile) books I have read...it has the potential to generate excellent discussions about how both the individual and society deal with illness and disability." Sue Child, Times Higher Education Supplement

"The book forces you to think, and to think philosophically. Carel neatly lifts philosophy off the page, and places it out there like a talisman in our everyday life. The book deserves to be read widely by the public, and I would suggest needs to be read
