Illness - Stories and Experience: Arthur Frank and Havi Carel in dialogue

Arthur Frank

Arthur Frank has been writing about illness and the body since the late 1980s, when he wrote his first book At the Will of the Body, a memoir of critical illness, while also writing an omnibus review article “Bringing Bodies Back In” published in Theory, Culture, & Society and subsequently expanded in Featherstone, Hepworth, and Turner’s seminal collection, The Body. Havi Carel is Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Bristol and also teaches at Bristol Medical School. She is currently a British Academy Fellow, writing on a monograph for Oxford University Press, provisionally entitled Phenomenology of Illness. Her research examines the experience of illness and of receiving healthcare. She has written on the embodied experience of illness, wellbeing within illness and patient-physician communication in the Lancet, BMJ, Journal of Medicine and Philosophy, Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics, Philosophia and in edited collections.
