Although the concept of deviance - considering its nature of subjective value judgement - is hard to define in medical science (and other natural sciences as well), the history of medicine and deviance is strongly intertwined. Firstly because the doctors deal with "deviant people" on a daily basis, since our society treats all its unhealthy members as deviants, even if it does not consciously consider sickness or impairment as articulated deviance - this is demonstrated by several sociomedical studies. Furthermore, it is not unprecedented in history that medicine has benefited from the condemnation of certain groups as deviant, and on occasion medicine even took an active part in endeavours to eliminate specific "deviances". However, with the evolution medical ethics it has become much more characteristic that groups with no medicalscientific background try to justify their subjective value judgements with "medicalisation", as they attempt to proclaim a given state or behaviour as a sickness, seeing that this - as we mentioned before - is a stigma of its own right. Therefore the main subjects of this lecture are what sickness is, and how a doctor - not only as a responsible applier of his science, but also as a person of authority - should face these challenges.
