In the past half-century, as the miracle of modern pharmaceuticals promised remedies, the treatment of ailments and illness may have supplanted a humanistic perspective of health. In his book, "Pharmageddon," Professor of psychiatry David Healy explores the paradox of how improved techniques, tools, and medicines can ulitmately eliminate the "care" in health care.
