- This article raises the question to what extent health care as practised in biomedicine
includes care as a moral and existential value. The text is at the same time a ‘teaser’ to
draw attention to an up-coming symposium on ‘Care and Health Care’ (see under News).
The authors argue that biomedicine needs a ‘remake’ to involve the care that characterises
the moral world of human experience.
