About this product
- DescriptionDiagsis is central to medical practice, medical kwledge and research, medicalization dynamics, and health and illness experience. Embedded in social relations, diagses reflect and shape social dynamics and cultural concerns. Diagses are integral to resource allocation, form the basis for identities, and may become a focal point of turf battles and contested authority. Some diagses are willingly embraced, whereas others are strenuously resisted. Some diagses come and go as fashions; others persist. A sociological approach to diagsis therefore occupies a complex intersection of diverse subfields including medical sociology, sociology of kwledge, mental health, deviance, social control, sociology of science, social movements, the body, sexualities, gender, and health and illness. This volume explores the breadth of diagsis and diagses through empirical reports, conceptual work, and theoretical statements from diverse perspectives. Reflecting the multi-faceted nature of the emerging field, the book is arranged in five sections: Frameworks, Context, Contestation, Identity, and Social Control. Sociology of Diagsis thus provides both a starting point for discussion and means with which to organize the nascent conceptual landscape.
