 What can the humanities contribute to the practice of medicine? How, in practice, can this contribution strengthen physician-patient relationships, improve medical education, and improve patient care? In   Practicing the Medical Humanitie    s   (2003), the editors seek to engage physicians, humanists, and patients in a conversation addressing these two critical questions, and readers are asked to consider the future of the medical humanities and their goals: what are the possibilities for the renewal of the humanist tradition of practical wisdom, tolerance, and compassion, and what would this mean for the practice of medicine?

   The Journey of Life    (1992) is both a cultural history of aging and a contribution to public dialogue about the meaning and significance of later life. The core of the book shows how central texts and images of Northern middle-class culture, first in Europe and then in America, created and sustained specifically modern images of the life course between the Reformation and World War I. During this long period, secular, scientific and individualist tendencies steadily eroded ancient and medieval understandings of aging as a mysterious part of the eternal order of things. In the last quarter of the twentieth century, however, postmodern images of life's journey offer a renewed awareness of the spiritual dimensions of later life and new opportunities for growth in an aging society.
