What is illness? Is it a physiological dysfunction, a social label, or a way of experiencing the world? How do the physical, social and emotional worlds of a person change when they become ill? And can there be well-being within illness?

In this thought-provoking conversation, Havi Carel – Professor of Philosophy from the University of Bristol – explores these questions by weaving together the personal story of her own serious illness with insights and reflections drawn from her work as a philosopher.
