However, the ‘void’ of the placebo is not really a ‘void’ at all: it is the effect of the cultural setting, meaning, expectancy, hope, belief, and faith on healing. Placebo effect is defined by anthropologist Daniel Moerman (2000) as “desirable psychological and physiological effects of meaning in the treatment of illness... ?Placebo Effects and Healing through...
