Nesse fascinante best-seller (número 1 em todas as listas nos EUA), o economista Steven Levitt e o jornalista Stephen J. Dubner estudam a rotina e os enigmas da vida genuine ? da trapaça à criminalidade, dos esportes à criação dos filhos ? com conclusões que viram de cabeça para baixo o senso comum, geralmente usando dados aparentemente inofensivos e fazendo perguntas simples nunca feitas. Daí surge o novo campo de estudo apresentado neste livro: freakonomics. O que liga essas histórias é a crença de que o mundo moderno, aparentemente confuso, complicado e enganoso, não é impenetrável nem indecifrável. Na verdade, quando fazemos as perguntas certas, o mundo é ainda mais interessante do que supomos. É preciso, apenas, uma visão nova. Steven Levitt, por meio de um raciocínio incrivelmente inteligente e objetivo, mostra como é possível ver as coisas de maneira clara nessa barafunda. Os leitores vão tirar deste livro enigmas e histórias para entreter interlocutores em muitas e muitas festas, mas Freakonomics traz mais que isso: ele redefine a maneira como encaramos o mundo.

As discussed below, I contend that an essential component of the fundamental differences between traditional medicine systems and biomedicine is that each derives its legitimacy from different orientations. To sum up the topic of rephrasing a typical question, I am pleased to see that several authors have more recently taken up the ‘integration’ issue. Very recently, both Tangwa (2007) and van Bogaert (2007) echoed the question while debunking a blanket negation of African traditional healing by Nyika (2007) in the context of HIV/AIDS.
