Some important public health issues related to this lecture :

  • Historically, the twin theoretical roots of Sociology are philosophy and science as they developed in the 17th and 18th centuries in Europe with the writings of thinkers such as Charles Montesquieu (1689–1755) and Jean Jacques Rousseau (1712–1778) on social forces, power, and social facts; Immanuel Kant (1724–1804) on the systematic analysis of cause and effect, ie causality relationship;
  • And Henri de Saint-Simon (1760–1825) about industry, the need for
    social reforms, and the scientific study of society and social life.
  • Philosophers such as René Descartes (1596–1650), Thomas Hobbes (1588–1679), and John Locke (1632–1704) aimed at ‘grand, general, and very abstract systems of ideas that made rational sense’.
  • İbn Khaldun (1332-1406) in fact, is the real founder of Political Sociology.
  • Medical sociology is simply the study of the effects of social and cultural factors on Health and Medicine. Specializing as a medical sociologist helps individuals view the healthcare system as a function of the society and serve it by examining and improving all its facets.
  • Medical Sociologyis the Sociological analysis of medical organizations and institutions; the production of knowledge and selection of methods, the actions and interactions of healthcare professionals, and the social or cultural –rather than clinical or bodily– effects of medical practice.

    With respect and love. 21st April 2024, Ankara
