One of the most powerfully effective examples of this distaste has been the relentless extirpation of all essentialisms from the methods and analytics employed in the social sciences. While one should hardly feel any regret at the passing of these hopeless caricatures, the animosity with which this task has been prosecuted has engendered a range of unexpected challenges for the social sciences, challenges that increasingly bedevil the health sciences too. Chief among them has been a growing uncertainty about the status of the objects of the health and social sciences, including the ‘body’ and the ‘subject’, even ‘human life’ itself.

Health, in this respect, is presented as the inevitable outcome of a propitious environment, supportive public policy or a favourable genetic endowment. What this outcome looks like in its substantive, lived reality is rarely countenanced (see Fox 2012). For example, the World Health Organisation (1986: 1) defines health as a “state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being…a resource for everyday life, not the objective of living”. Yet health is merely instrumentalized in this definition, converted into a resource rather than an end in itself such that the “objective of living” is cast outside the scientific realm into the domain of private affairs.
