Sample text

Insofar as the patient’s experience does not fit the generic textbook account, the discrepancies may be viewed as irrelevant or the patient may be viewed as an unreliable historian, unable to give a clear account of their condition or understand its true nature (Kirmayer, 1988). Unfortunately, this reduction of illness experience to diagnostic categories does not fulfill the basic mandate of medicine. There is little place in this scheme for identifying problems (or solutions) that reside primarily or exclusively in the interpersonal or social world.

Empathy and the Politics of Alterity Attention to culture and context is not only essential for accurate diagnostic assessment and effective treatment; it is at the root of clinical practice based on an ethics of recognition (Kirmayer, 2012a). Recognition of cultural identity may be essential for well-being and allowing individuals to realize their cultural identities is a basic human right (Kirmayer, 2012b). At the political level, this recognition requires tolerance of diversity and pluralism.
