The article analyzes the relationship between the disciplines that make the care and the cure of health their object of study, sociology and medicine. Moving from the standpoint of a necessary cooperation between these disciplines, the author focuses on two of the most recent transformations that have invested them and have favored this cooperation. Specifically the author examines the gradual emergence of the issues of the body in sociology, and that of the narrative in the medicine. The essay focuses on the epistemic implications that accompany this double movement, to close with a discussion of the conditions that enable a fruitful collaboration between sociology and medicine. The article ends with an invitation to a rethinking of the notion of method, understood not as a collection of rules that act as orders, but as a set of principles that receive a different, context sensitive interpretation.

Keywords: Relationship between sociology and medicine; body; embodiment; narrative; illness narratives; method.
