The term culture has increasingly been used in the discourse of public health, for example, with respect to issues of health disparities in the U.S., the development and implementation of ‘culturally competent’ or ‘culturally appropriate’ programs, and in many other ways. What exactly is culture, however? Published in partnership with the American Public Health Association, this newest offering in the Essential Public Health series examines what is meant by culture, the ways in which culture intersects with health issues, how public health efforts can benefit by understanding and working with cultural processes, and a brief selection of conceptual tools and research methods that are useful in identifying relationships between culture and health. Essentials of Health, Culture, and Diversity includes practical guidelines for incorporating cultural understanding in public health settings, and examples of programs where that has occurred.

Das erste Handbuch zur gesundheitlichen Situation beider Geschlechter. In der bisherigen wissenschaftlichen Diskussion laufen die theoretischen und methodischen Forschungen zur Frauengesundheit und Männergesundheit nebeneinander her. Mit diesem Band wird der Versuch unternommen, sie aufeinander zu beziehen und in eine vergleichende Darstellung zu bringen. Die in der deutschen und internationalen Literatur verstreuten Studien zur Gesundheits- und Krankheitssituation der beiden Geschlechter werden profiliert aufgearbeitet. Im ersten Teil des Buches werden theoretische, konzeptionelle und methodische Ergebnisse und Erklärungsansätze für die unterschiedlichen Formen von Krankheit und Gesundheitsstörungen bei Männern und Frauen vorgestellt. Dabei werden biologische ebenso wie psychische, verhaltensbezogene und biografische Faktoren berücksichtigt. Von ausgewiesenen Fachautorinnen und Fachautoren werden die neuesten Ergebnisse zur Ausprägung der vorherrschenden Gesundheitsstörungen präsentiert. Auch Gesellschafts- und Umwelteinflüsse auf Gesundheit und Krankheit der beiden Geschlechter werden berücksichtigt, ebenso wie die unterschiedliche Inanspruchnahme des Versorgungssystems durch Männer und Frauen. Der Band nimmt zum ersten Mal eine systematisch vergleichende Perspektive in der geschlechterbezogenen Gesundheitsforschung ein. Für den Bereich der Frauengesundheitsforschung können hier die Autorinnen und Autoren an eine schon 20-jährige Tradition anknüpfen, die zu einer beachtlichen Breite von wissenschaftlichen Studien geführt hat. Das gilt für das noch neue Gebiet der Männergesundheitsforschung nicht, das sich erst seit wenigen Jahren etabliert hat. Die Autorinnen und Autoren sind ausgewiesene Fachleute aus dem Inland und dem Ausland. Sie treten für eine vergleichende Geschlechtergesundheitsforschung ein, ohne die Besonderheiten der Frauen- und Männergesundheitsforschung zu vernachlässigen.

Ein S Kulares Zeitalter

Was heißt es, daß wir heute in einem säkularen Zeitalter leben? Was ist geschehen zwischen 1500 – als Gott noch seinen festen Platz im naturwissenschaftlichen Kosmos, im gesellschaftlichen Gefüge und im Alltag der Menschen hatte – und heute, da der Glaube an Gott, jedenfalls in der westlichen Welt, nur noch eine Option unter vielen ist? Um diesen Wandel zu bestimmen und in seinen Folgen für die gegenwärtige Gesellschaft auszuloten, muß die große Geschichte der Säkularisierung in der nordatlantischen Welt von der frühen Neuzeit bis in die Gegenwart erzählt werden – ein herkulisches Unterfangen, dem sich der kanadische Philosoph Charles Taylor in seinem mit Spannung erwarteten neuen Buch stellt. Mit einem Fokus auf dem »lateinischen Christentum«, dem vorherrschenden Glauben in Europa, rekonstruiert er in geradezu verschwenderischem Detail die entscheidenden Entwicklungslinien in den Naturwissenschaften, der Philosophie, der Staats- und Rechtstheorie und in den Künsten. Dem berühmten Diktum von der wissenschaftlich-technischen »Entzauberung der Welt« und anderen eingeschliffenen Säkularisierungstheorien setzt er die These entgegen, daß es die Religion selbst war, die das Säkulare hervorgebracht hat, und entfaltet eine komplexe Mentalitätsgeschichte des modernen Subjekts, das heute im Niemandsland zwischen Glauben und Atheismus gefangen ist.
