Western Scientific Paradigm, Medicine, and Cultural Diversity

Throughout the history of humanity, variations and development in theory, practice, and technology happen as people and the society continue to re-establish and reframe such matters for progress sake. People continually realize the need for change in perspective and approach as certain individuals and groups recognize the mishits of the past and the present practices. Science has been re-evaluated for many times considering shifts in ideological foundations and paradigms (see Kuhn, 1962). In the case of health and medicine, the apparent clashes of scientific ideas and new practices are present as different healing perspectives continue to arise. Most of the times however, the western line of thinking always marked as ‘superior’ among the rest. Clearly, we see through studying history and politics how and why western science and philosophy reigns against the ‘alternative’ forms and practices existing in the world society. Reflecting upon the literatures criticizing the nature of science and technology, we realize that the scientific community and practice is neither neutral nor apolitical (Kuhn, 1962; Jamison, 1994; Star, 1995; Dickson, 1984).
