    Alex Broadbent: Philosophy of Epidemiology: Palgrave Macmillan, New York, 2013, 228 Pp., $85.00 , ISBN 978-0-230-35512-5.Jeff Levin - 2014 - Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 35 (4):311-314.
    Alex Broadbent’s Philosophy of Epidemiology is the latest volume in Palgrave Macmillan’s New Directions in the Philosophy of Science series. Other monographs in the series focus on mathematics, biology, astronomy, et al.—the usual topics of discourse when philosophers engage science. The present volume is a welcome addition not just to the series but also for the field of epidemiology. As Broadbent notes, “Although a few philosophers have studied epidemiology, there have been no philosophical studies of epidemiology” . There is one (...)

    Human Flourishing and Population Health: Meaning, Measurement, and Implications.Jeff Levin - 2020 - Perspectives in Biology and Medicine 63 (3):401-419.
    In recent decades, social and behavioral scientists have begun to explore how and why human beings thrive or flourish and to consider whether traits indicative of thriving or flourishing may themselves influence physical well-being. This stands in contrast to the historical tendency in these fields to focus on pathology: mental illness, psychological dysfunction, deviant behavior, social problems, and so on. In epidemiology, too, the influence of pathology is seen in a tacit emphasis on risk factors for disease outcomes and for (...)

    New-Paradigm Research in Medicine: An Agenda.Jeff Levin - 2017 - Journal of Scientific Exploration 31 (1).
    Critics of Western medicine have long heralded a “new paradigm” opposed to the reigning materialistic worldview of biomedical science and allopathy. This new paradigm has undergone several name changes and presumably advances a radically new worldview. On closer inspection, it looks more like the opposite pole of the same dualistic worldview and not a radical break with the past. A truly new paradigm prepared to jettison tacit conceptual assumptions would have significant implications for medical research, provided that institutional and professional (...)

  7. Revisiting the Alexander UFO Religious Crisis Survey (AUFORCS): Is There Really a Crisis?Jeff Levin - 2012 - Journal of Scientific Exploration 26 (2).
    This paper explores the tacit presumption that U.S. government disclosure of information regarding prior contact with extraterrestrials would precipitate a religious crisis. This issue has remained controversial since the earliest ufological writing, both government and academic, yet only minimal empirical evidence has been forthcoming. The present analysis is based on data collected as a part of the Alexander UFO Religious Crisis Survey, a private study of Protestant, Roman Catholic, and Jewish clergy conducted in 1994 whose raw data only recently have (...)

    The Discourse on Faith and Medicine: A Tale of Two Literatures.Jeff Levin - 2018 - Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 39 (4):265-282.
    Research and writing at the intersection of faith and medicine by now include thousands of published studies, review articles, books, chapters, and essays. Yet this emerging field has been described, from within, as disheveled on account of imprecision and lack of careful attention to conceptual and theoretical concerns. An important source of confusion is the fact that scholarship in this field constitutes two distinct literatures, or rather meta-literatures, which can be termed faith as a problematic for medicine and medicine as (...)
