A conceptual history of social inequality in health and justice in the Federal Republic of Germany
The paper aims to contribute to the research on biopolitics by elucidating the historical phases in which ‘inequality’ was shaped as a concept of knowledge. The historical change and the reciprocal influence between the discourses are analyzed to better understand the concept of inequality in health. The reconstruction of the concept reveals the interdependence of denotation between social epidemiological research, political consulting and health political debate in the Federal Republic of Germany between 1975 and 2009.
