There is a long history of philosophical reflection on connections between human flourishing, health, spirituality and religion. In this chapter, we can do no more than give a brief survey of some of the basic philosophical issues. In turn, we shall discuss human flourishing, health, disease, adverse conditions, spirituality, and religion.
