A sociological theory is defined as a set of ideas that provide explanations about society and its structures. Theories are essentially an explanation, Health and illness are terms that are commonly interlinked, and offer a topic of discussion that involves different definitions and viewpoints. Theories of sociology of health and illness defy the biomedical model of disease as many of them are 'concerned with the social origins and influence on disease' rather than pathological reasons only. Sociological Theories of Health and Illness reviews the evolution of theory in medical sociology beginning with the field’s origins in medicine and extending to its present-day standing as a major sociological subdiscipline. Discussion of the stress process model (Pearlin) is followed by the social construction of gender and race and intersectionality theory (Collins), health lifestyle theory (Cockerham), life course theory (Elder), fundamental cause theory (Link and Phelan), and theories of the medical profession (Freidson), medicalization and biomedicalization (Conrad, Clarke), and social capital (Bourdieu, Putnam, and Lin).
