Cosmographic Experiments


This is an ethnographic project that investigates non-modern possibilities for thinking, doing and being human. It explores the emergence of “Daoist ethic” in post-socialist China, where the healthcare system is undergoing drastic and profound transformations deeply affecting a wide range of issues such as doctor-patient relations, medical entrepreneruship, and the production of experimental forms of medical knowledge.

“Daoist ethic” explores how critical analytics centered on the dynamic oneness of all things are animated and articulated across these disparate sites, in everyday healthcare practice and life more broadly.
