Nursing and Humanities offers a way to think through the relationship between nursing and the humanities, in the context of the pluralistic nature of a practice profession that requires exact scientific and technical knowledge applied in complex, dynamic situations of human relating. It outlines the many ways in which the humanities have long been part of nurses’ lives and builds a framework for a more explicit understanding of the value of the humanities for nursing.
This innovative account draws on developments in neuroscience, on philosophical debates about subjective experience, and on the complex reality of practice itself to develop a rich, contextualized account of nursing humanities that avoids the trap of a binary opposition between arts and sciences and makes a strong argument for the continued value of humanities in nursing.
Nursing and Humanities is an important read for all those interested in the philosophy, nature and history of nursing, as well as the medical and health humanities more broadly.
