Further Details
Abstract This chapter explores the extent to which selected writings of French philosopher Michel Serres and a health care model created by Brian Hodges in the UK can augment and inform the development of social informatics. The volume of Serres' output contrasts markedly with work devoted to Hodges' Health Career - Care Domains – Model. Since the concept of health is universal culturally, and informatics disciplines are emerging fields of practice characterised by indistinct boundaries in terms of theory, policy and practice, various ethnographic and cultural associations will be made. Placing Hodges’ model and Serres’ work together is not intended to suggest direct equivalence, other than the common themes this author intends to bring to the attention of the social informatics community. Central to the above, is the notion of holistic bandwidth, utilising Hodges’ model as a tool to develop and disseminate socio-technical perspectives.
