Back To Resources

On the imperial possibilities of modernised medicine

Written Material

This paper by John McKnight, the founder of the Centre for Urban Affairs and Policy Research at Northwestern University, Illinois, takes an acerbic look at the American health system and his theory that medicine purports now to offer not just the elimination of disease but the perfection of life, as evidenced by new medical frontiers such as genetic manipulation. He questions why society continues to invest in such monumental misallocation of national resource when medical professionals themselves recognise the illusion of such promises.
