Aboriginals Dolson, M. (2011). On the Possibility of a Synergy Between Indigenous Knowledges of Health and Healing and Western Biomedicine: Toward a Phenomenological Understanding. PlatForum (Vol.11). Philosophical Perspective – The main purpose and scope of the article is to provide an argument that the possibility for a proper synergy between biomedicine and traditional knowledge of health and healing at the clinical practice level might be difficult to sustain. The author states that this is primarily because of the major philosophical differences between the two healing systems. The author points out that many traditional understandings of health and healing are spiritual in origin and/or maintain a spiritual or symbolic element. As such, it is difficult to determine their effectiveness against empirically driven scientific values and standards. He states that there are clear differences between biomedicine and indigenous healing systems, which may hinder the possibility for their sustained and successful integration. He outlines the major philosophical differences with particular attention on the concepts of health and disease.
