Science, Art or Something Third is Medicine? Part 2

Abstract. The study aims to answer its title question. It is argued that medicine is neither a science nor an art in the modern sense of these terms, but a complex, organic, coordinated, subordinated and dynamic system of fundamental (basic) and clinical (applied) scientific disciplines that forms a specific scientific field, and the application in practice of the knowledge acquired from them constitutes what is called the healing or medical art. The argumentation is based on two coordinate systems: the contemporary definitions of science and art accepted as working.
Keywords: medicine, science, art, concept, laws, scientific evidence.
