Today, the undoubted successes of medicine are side by side with the negative consequences of its triumphant march. It is becoming more and more clear that not only medicine, but also a number of other practices is responsible for human health, that without a radical revision of the concepts of “health” and “disease”, further development of “health science” is hardly possible. Health and illness are not natural biologically phenomena (natural states of the body and psyche), but rather complex artifacts caused by both modern cultural discourses (concepts, worldviews, knowledge) and, to no less extent, social institutions and technologies. It is important to cultivate a new understanding of health, which implies not only medical care, but also the work of a person on himself, the development of individual concepts of health, the subordination of the work of recovery and maintenance of health to the general context of a correct life.
