  • When good science makes an advance it pauses and turns to reacquaint itself with the modes of thought that immediately preceded it. Science orients itself with respect to these modes of thought, examines its connections, debts and disputes with them, decides whether it is operating at a different level of analysis and with respect to different interests, conceptualisations and subject matter. The present volume is a case in point of good science in this sense. It addresses medical pluralism, a founding concept of the field of medical anthropology.
