Interdisciplinary Colloquium in Medicine & Humanities (Tel Aviv University, 2017-8)

Interdisciplinary Colloquium in Medicine & Humanities

Medicine and Humanities share a common subject of research – the human subject. The basic and fundamental difference is the methodologies and research strategies that sometimes lead to different or similar conclusions. In the Colloquium, we will examine how the two disciplines approach issues and problems, ask if their conclusions are alike, and how the differences can contribute to richer, more efficient and more accurate outcomes.
