The environment and human health across life and social sciences
How the environment, as inducer of health and disease states, is conceived and operationalized in life and social sciences?
Which attitude should we adopt toward the multiplicity of concepts and metrics of the environment across all these sciences?
Is such a plurality temporal and solvable, and how, or is it permanent and ineliminable?
And what does this imply for the research approach adopted in the life and in the social sciences?
