Abstract

It is argued that currently prevailing concepts of the scientific status and appropriate mode of operation of epidemiology fall short of those required for the development of effective strategies to promote health in the everyday world. The need, at present unmet, exists for an experimentally meaningful and politically aware theory and method in health research and practice.
