Reflection: programming and caring II

Reflection: (Ruby Pocket Reference, O'Reilly, 2007, p. 147.)

The ability of a language such as Ruby
to examine and manipulate itself.
For example, the reflection method class from Object
returns an object's class ("hello".class # => String).

Reflection within health and social care - is there a further definition ...?

Well yes, there are several, but there may be another ...?

The ability of a health and social care model such as Hodges' model
to examine and manipulate itself *
in response to an individual's (and family's)
care situation and context.
For example, the reflection method class from Object
returns an object's class (Intrapersonal.class # => Domain)#.


*This would require of course that Hodges' model is represented as a programming language or formalised conceptual space of some sort....
#Or something like this....
