A philosophical analysis of the evidence-based medicine debate[1] attempts to clarify the nature of evidence-based medicine by performing a philosophical analysis of its relationship with alternative medicine.

Alternative Medicine: A "Mirror Image" for Scientific Reasoning in Conventional Medicine[2], using the example of homeopathy comes to the conclusion that alternative medicine is often demarcated from conventional medicine based not on evidence, but on preconceptions. The "crossword analogy" of philosopher Susan Haack is used to explain the status of alternative medicine.
