This chapter examines the philosophy of communitarianism, arguing that this can be used as a basis for the values on which to build the proposed new paradigm for health economics. It points to the emphasis that communitarians place on public life and community in general, and the fact that people are not free floating atoms but members of communities, citizens with identities that are in part formed by their social setting.
