This paper offers an introduction to the three themes that organise the papers in this special issue of Health, Risk & Society. These relate to the calculus, interpretation and regulation of health risk. The papers describe in differing ways the interface between the social and the biological, and the introduction suggests how this leads to a consideration of constructivist and realist approaches towards risk and the need to bridge the two, not only for methodological but also practical (regulatory) purposes.
