Représentations sociales et représentations intimes de la maladie. Quelques réflexions d'un clinicien [Social and private representations of cancer. A clinician's point of view]
Publication type : Review
This paper discusses social representations in scientific communications and private ones that are linked to the individual imagination. Social representations, in a limited sense, are useful for the development of preventive messages, but of little benefit to clinical work. We highlight some non-explicit aspects of scientific discourse that impact on treatment: projected beliefs and values. We tackle the relationship between the concepts of representation, imagination, identity and temporality in the individual approach of the cancer patient.
