Whitehead's philosophy of organism provides the most comprehensive and adequate basis for the transformation of contemporary health care. In contrast to the reductionist and fragmentary medical models supported by Cartesian dualism, materialism, and idealism, Whitehead's metaphysics serves as the foundation for a holistic health care system, inclusive of the dimensions of spirituality, emotions, physical existence, and environment as they relate to health and illness. Whitehead's understanding of the relationship of mind and body and the role of the divine in the creative process encourages the inclusion of pastoral care, imaging, and meditation in responding to illness.
