Using the philosophical lens of universality and singularity in combination with nursing practice, Janice M. Brencick and Glenn A. Webster explore the complex relationship between science and technology, on the one hand, and the care of unique and complex individuals on the other. Through carefully crafted conversations between a nurse and many respected philosophers from Plato to Whitehead, the book reflects on spirituality, caring, and God or the One. The authors' unique perspectives -- Brencick is a nursing clinician; Webster, a philosopher -- provide a profound and fascinating look at the modern health care system and a new vision for health care in the twenty-first century.
