Abstract or Summary
  • The relationship between the self and the body forms the basis of many philosophical speculations throughout history. This thesis investigates the self‐body relationship in a modern medical context, connecting abstract ideas about the mind and embodiment with ethical decision making in healthcare. Naturalist, Feminist and property conceptions of the body are formulated from research of bioethical and philosophical writings and critiqued with regards to advantages and disadvantages each model provides for understanding medical practice. The three models are then applied to concepts of disease, illness and disability so that the connections between ideas and medical practice are made explicit. Ultimately, investigating and explaining these models offers nuanced and insightful ways to understand healthcare in a variety of situations, but no one model offers a fully comprehensive explanation of the medical self‐body relationship.
