II CNIO-Banco Sabadell Foundation Workshop on Philosophy, Science and Medicine. Socio-environmental factors of health and disease

November 24, 2020 – Webinar


Do we really understand cancer in terms of the molecular processes underlying it? Do we know how a patient’s socio-environmental factors affect this understanding? Four scientists and five philosophers participated in a debate on this question in the online Workshop on Philosophy, Science and Medicine: socio-environmental factors of health and disease organised by the CNIO with the support of the Banco Sabadell Foundation. It aimed to bring philosophy closer to scientific practice and to encourage philosophical research in areas such as cancer, biodiversity and public health, to achieve a better and deeper understanding of this disease.
