Abstract

From a nature watcher's perspective, primary care is best understood as a dynamic health-relevant process involving many interrelated forces, actions, persons, and contexts of meaning. The scientific basis of primary care should take into consideration various and diverse traditions of systematic inquiry, since our understanding of meaning and context is as important as our understanding of cause and effect in the work of primary care.
