Health in Non-human Organisms

2020 (English)In: Explaining Health Across the Sciences / [ed] Jonathan Sholl; Suresh I.S. Rattan, Cham: Springer Nature, 2020, 1 uppl, p. 333-346Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter analyses attempts made to define health for non-human organisms. This could be done either as a bottom-up approach finding a common denominator that all organisms share, or as a top-down approach which starts with a certain valuable criterion that those organisms share. Through this chapter I will discuss both approaches. I will briefly discuss the concept of organism and why I only choose to discuss biological organisms. This chapter will also further develop a categorization of health definitions that acknowledges the variety of the different kinds of definitions. This is done as a two-level categorization consisting of categories and versions of these categories. I will go through relevant categories and versions in order to be able to say which could be fruitful to use as well as where science needs to be heading.
