With reference to philosophical anthropology, a human ecological framework for the human– surroundings relationship as an “ecology of the character” is outlined, which specializes in the time period “relationship” and goals to be scientifically sound. It additionally gives theoretical orientations for multi professional medical work. For this purpose, a multi-dimensional primary grid for the characterization of the man or woman individual is proposed. The need and meaningfulness of a differentiation and systematization of the terms “environment”, and notably “dating”, are validated, and realistic examples and links to similar framework models are given.


Human–Environment, Relationship, Professionalism, Competence, Mental health, Psychic development.


More than forty years in the past, his influential view of a three-dimensional bio–psycho–social structures version that allows recognize health and sickness in the context of “psychosomatics”. In parallel, the problem of “environmental fitness” got here up, emphasizing the health outcomes of the physic-chemical environment. At present, “concept-free” multifactorial analyses and models dominate epidemiological studies and biochemical experiments consolidate present day medical understanding. On the way to re-set up a multi-facetted however included theoretical view on health and disease, a human–ecological framework is proposed. Human ecology, so that it will philosophical anthropology, is involved with the observe of the human–environment relationship and can be characterised as “the ecology of the person”. It focuses on the principal time period “relationship” and its variations, and also gives a theoretical orientation to the multi-professional exercise of scientific paintings because it became practiced within the subject of addiction remedy and prevention. A multidimensional conceptual framework became proposed for the characterization of the character man or women in addition to the idea “surroundings”, and principally, “dating”. Sensible examples are blanketed and hyperlinks to similar framework fashions are referred to [1].

Integrative Standards of Fitness and Disorder

Biomedicine has been a success studies method in medicine. However, psychological and social factors additionally have an impact on fitness and sickness. At that point, the fitness impacts of the physical surroundings, natural and artificial factors also have become thrilling issues and the sphere of environmental fitness turned into created, more or much less explicitly apart from the psychosocial domain. For the reason that then, “principle-free” multifactorial analyses and models dominate the epidemiological and medical studies, mixing variables with exclusive ontologies without connection with a conceptual framework that merits the call “theoretical medicinal drug”. Standards inclusive of “vulnerability”, “resilience”, “threat factors”, “autogenesis”, “protecting factors”, and so on. Signify these approaches and the constructassociated theoretical discussions which can be carried out with a purpose to “explain” the prevalence of sicknesses. Even massive information will not achieve better causes of illnesses if they're now not embedded in “large theories”.

At present, the health sciences are privy to the health consequences of weather exchange and different environmental issues and are visible in a systemic framework capturing interactions, comments loops, etc. those frameworks represent conceptually socio-ecological systems and integrate physical and social problems, and therefore the term “ecology” is now and again extensively utilized. A few issues, like urban fitness contact Public fitness, different are very pressing together with weather change and water deliver, food protection, and population health and are linked with the main goals of the UN program of Sustainable improvement. Accordingly, there's again a few evidence for the need of an extended integrative clinical version. Some researchers and institutions have extensively utilized the academic label “(social) ecology”. This later view can be the focal point of our paper, which proposes a human ecological conceptual framework that covers several views touched on above which includes the character as well as the populace stage, the natural, social, and constructed surroundings and the household of human– surroundings interactions [2].

Initial Philosophical Comments

Integrative modelling calls for interdisciplinary integrative epistemology and bridge standards. This has been discussed lately concerning the brain–thoughts hole in neurosciences. In particular within the context of fitness sciences, the integration of the “goal” views of research and “subjective” views of sufferers ought to be connected. Regarding this trouble, constructivism offers a commonplace view factor within the social and human sciences: it is supposed that there's no method to decide “real truth” except through discourses. Nonetheless, constructivism admits that “accessible”, there may be something (landscape), relating to which the development of the out of doors world (the map) is “viable”, (i.e., needs to be corrected by obstacles if essential, but otherwise makes movements viable). To exchange those maps inter-subjectively, language is critical and “truth” is co-built in discourses of the stakeholders of the respective trouble. In the practice of fitness services, experts co-assemble the ideas of fitness or disorder with the consumer or patient. However, on this dating, the specialists (e.g., medical body of workers) in maximum cases have better justified—scientifically primarily based—get admission to the reality. But, concerning drug studies, the specialists do no longer recognize completely the subjective enjoy of the user. This shows that “scientific realism” (or “optimistic realism”) is probably a more appropriate epistemological function, and trouble that desire in addition dialogue. Sooner or later, clinical theoretical elements such as the difference between description, clarification, and diagnosis must be taken into account [3].

closely connected with those epistemological issues is the contemporary, carefully advanced discipline of the idea of different organizational ranges of the arena as it became mentioned as ontology, which become probably closing elaborated by way of Nicolai Hartmann. Remarkably, nowadays the large facts technique enters into this conceptual hole by using attempting to associatively cowl all areas of the individual “life world” of as many humans as feasible and to “deduct” conduct clarifying contexts inside the shape of hierarchical concept systems which are designed for pragmatically and theoretical motives. On this conceptual version, we attempted to explicate several crucial dimensions of attention which include the “human”, the “surroundings”, and the “members of the family, topics that can be defined by way of not unusual fundamental houses however want various conceptual differentiations [4].
