Dr Charles Percy Snow pointed to dichotomy of style of scientific thought in Western culture in a paper entitled 'The Two Cultures' (1959). This dichotomy has been overcome by the biopsychosocial approach in contemporary medicine. George Engel, practicing physician, published a paper in the journal 'Science' (1977) entitled 'The Need for a New Medical Model: A Challenge for Biomedicine'. Engel's vision of creating a unified scientific model that would account for both physical and psychological processes has been extended into the interpersonal, social and environmental spheres. ,
