2017-2018 Center for Investigation
A culture’s definition and understanding of the human condition, its ideas about the balance of rights and responsibilities, and its particular system of production impact the scope and nature of its health care resources. The Moravian College community will take advantage of our focus on health and health care to explore these questions through a multidisciplinary lens.
Looking at the intersections of the humanities, the social sciences and the natural sciences, we will investigate our understanding of what it means to be human.
We will reflect on our past, take a snapshot of our current understanding of health and benchmark standards of what constitutes healthiness, and ponder our collective next steps, remembering at every point of the analysis that in our contemplation of our physical, mental, spiritual, and social well-being, we are asking the most basic questions about our understanding of the human condition.
