Why do we need medicine?
2 months ago · · philosophy,
I'm aware medicine has been always being with humans. Still, I am wonder about the role of the medicine from our Era and its purpose:
Without medicine, we could had die since before born. During birth, or childhood. As adults, with common infections. The point is: a lot of us could not reach this far in life. And... that would be okay. So there's my doubt...
if medicine's purpose is to extend life, or said it in other words, kick death until next time (many times), then why don't we accept the fact that our life is shorter, delicate and painful than we imagine?
I'm not trying to be apocalyptic or whatever lol~ I just need a logical explanation for our behaviour and actual consciousness in this Era related to that subject 😅
