Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 14 (3):251-259 (1989)
Abstract
Full development of personality under socialism is ensured by the further improvement of the socialist system and the rising cultural and material levels of the Soviet people. The author demonstrates that a new, integrated approach should be taken to the problem of human health in Soviet sociopolitical strategy: the concept of human health should embrace philosophical aspects together with findings of the natural and social sciences. The author looks at the wide range of social, philosophical, and methodological issues which should be taken into account in order to remove the obstacles from the road towards purposeful control of human and social health.
