Palladino, Paolo (2007) From Tragedy to Farce:On Medicine, the State and the Market. Journal of Historical Sociology, 20 (4). pp. 622-645. ISSN 0952-1909Full text not available from this repository.
This speculative essay is prompted by the formal characteristics of contemporary debates over the progress of medicine, namely their oscillation between claims about ever greater possibilities and dire warnings about threats to fundamental human values, and by a troublesome, yet resonant, phase from Nikolas Rose's reflections on contemporary governmental mechanisms. It seeks to push the terms medicine, state and market to their conceptual limit, and raise question thereby about what might be the most appropriate comportment towards these debates.
