This video is a special release from the original Thinking Allowed series that ran on public television from 1986 until 2002. It was recorded in about 1992. 

Larry Dossey, author of Space, Time and Medicine, Beyond Illness, Recovering the Soul and Meaning and Medicine, discusses his critique of extremes within both the holistic movement and orthodox medicine.  He suggests that in each of these there is a tendency to simplistic thinking based on reductionistic formulas and a denial of the individuality of each patient.
