What exactly does it mean to be healthy? How do we define sickness? How widely do these two terms vary? What meaning do they have in society, and what analogies exist for them? The issue explores these key questions. Academics from the University of Heidelberg explore this combination of topics in the context of their respective disciplines and from various perspectives in 16 articles.
The publication’s cover questions our subjective idea of what the terms »Healthy & Sick« mean. The naturally grown tomato on the cover doesn’t look like a healthy one to us. In contrast, the perfect-looking tomato that corresponds to marketing standards in the inside appears to be fresh and healthy.
