Abstract/Summary In the introduction of this book we argued that health education is both an immense and an unwieldy field, proponents of which have been largely interested in changing health behaviours. This chapter provides an overview of the theoretical terrain that informs our thinking about health education throughout the book. Our commitment is to a socio-critical approach, which questions the taken-for-granted. In other words, following Foucault (1977), our work in the following chapters endeavours to make the familiar strange. We pursue this line of analysis here and throughout the book, as a means to try and steer away from the usual conversations. The chapter serves to provide an overview of our analytical framework that informs how we have come to think about health education; to understand its history, place, purpose and its possibilities.
