Abstract

This article asks the question, is it possible to decipher a new ‘medical cosmology’ that possesses an elective affinity with contemporary socio-technological changes? It tentatively answers in the positive and attempts to identify the parameters of a new medical cosmology that it terms e-scaped medicine.To discern the conceptual underpinnings of e-scaped medicine the article draws on De Mul’s theorization of the ‘informatization of the worldview’.The article elaborates on this thesis in relation to medicine’s prime object - the body - and to a number of medical practices that surround it.
