Spanish term or phrase: Elements for the foundation of self-knowledge in health sciences
ELEMENTOS PARA LA FUNDAMENTACIÓN DE UN CONOCIMIENTO PROPIO EN CIENCIAS DE LA SALUD

Título de un trabajo que hacer referencia a cómo caracterizar las ciencias. La duda la tengo en como traducir el término "Fundamentación" al inglés, ya que "foundation" creo que podría interpretarse distinto al significado que se le está dando en la frase escrita en español.
