Abstract

Milgrom is right to identify scientism as a major influence on both current medical practice and education. Whatever its advantages with regard to focusing attention in particular areas of study, a theoretical framework that renders the previously straightforward inherently problematic is clearly not an unequivocal advance. Scientism fractures the subject of proper medical attention. To repair the fracture, we need a revised conception of medical and scientific reasoning which understands the latter as an aspect of a broader, humanistic conception of reasoning.
