內容簡介

Bodies and Suffering: Emotions and Relations of Care

Suffering: Bodies, Emotions and Relations of Care is a critical response to a range of problems – some theoretical, others empirical - that shape questions surrounding the lived experience of suffering. The book explores how moral and ethical questions of personal suffering are experienced, contested, negotiated and institutionalized. The book investigates the moral labour and significance invested in actions to care for others, or in failing to do so. It also explores circumstances – personal, political and social – under which that which is perceived as non-moral becomes moral.

Drawing on case studies and empirical research, Suffering examines the idea of the suffering body across different cultures and contexts and the experience and treatment of these suffering bodies. The book integrates contemporary sociological and anthropological theory with case studies that investigate (amongst others) chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, attachment disorder and chronic exhaustion.

Suitable for bioethicists, medical anthropologists and health sociologists, Suffering: Bodies, Emotions and Relations of Care will also be of use on health science courses as essential reading on suffering bodies, mental health and morality and ethics issues.
