Philosophy Wire: Bacteria, health, sickness. Definitions. Living.


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2014-05-28]: A new look at the Human Microbiome Project shows wide variation in the types of bacteria found in healthy people. Based on their findings, there is no single healthy microbiome. Rather each person harbors a unique and varied collection of bacteria that’s the result of life history as well their interactions with the environment, diet and medication use. [1] We define what is life. We define what disease is. We define what is healthy. Why not call everything life? Why not call everything healthy? We are all sick. And we are all alive! Start thinking crazy. And you will find the answers.
