Humanizing Medicine: Extending the Scope of Medicine Beyond the Scientific
In this lecture, Thomas Moore - internationally known theologian and author of New York Times best-seller "Care of The Soul", "Soul Mates" and "A Life At Work," among other titles - talks about his views on extending the scope of medicine beyond the scientific to include spirituality and deep matters of soul. While a purely scientific approach to medicine can work well in and of itself, Moore also considers the importance of emotions, fantasies, dreams, the physical healing environment, and the relationship of caregiver and patient to enhance a person's healing and overall wellness.
