Sentir la muerte hoy: el género al final de la vida Nuevo esta semana

Categoría: a) Fundamentación de la bioética
Autpr: Bellosta Martínez, María Asunción
Edición: Prensas Universitarias de Zaragoza, 2014
ISBN:9788416028771
Precio: 20 €


Sentir la muerte hoy es un libro que habla, desde la sociología de la muerte, de la feminización del proceso de morir y de la muerte, algo que se descubre a través de la investigación cualitativa llevada a cabo en la tesis doctoral de María Asunción Bellosta Martínez. Cómo es el final de la vida para las personas moribundas y sus acompañantes, principalmente mujeres, y cómo el género se ve transformado por la propia muerte son los temas centrales de esta obra. En la viudedad, en las distintas profesiones que trabajan con la finitud, en la espiritualidad, es donde ha buscado la autora para poner en palabras una realidad que se esconde en los entresijos del gran tabú sobre la muerte, un tabú moderno, monolítico y dominante que se ve desvelado aquí de un modo fluido.



Safe and Effective Medicines for Children: Pediatric Studies Conducted Under the Best Pharmaceutical Nuevo esta semana

Precio: 65 $


The Best Pharmaceuticals for Children Act (BPCA) and the Pediatric Research Equity Act (PREA) were designed to encourage more pediatric studies of drugs used for children. The FDA asked the IOM to review aspects of pediatric studies and changes in product labeling that resulted from BPCA and PREA and their predecessor policies, as well as assess the incentives for pediatric studies of biologics and the extent to which biologics have been studied in children. The IOM committee concludes that these policies have helped provide clinicians who care for children with better information about the efficacy, safety, and appropriate prescribing of drugs. The IOM suggests that more can be done to increase knowledge about drugs used by children and thereby improve the clinical care, health, and well-being of the nation's children.



El acceso al agua potable como Derecho Humano su dimensión internacional Nuevo esta semana

El agua dulce es un recurso único tan necesario que ha pasado a ser objeto de enfrentamientos políticos y uno de los puntos de mira de los poderes económicos.
Han pasado diez años desde que Naciones Unidas bautizara al 2003 como el Año Internacional del Agua Dulce, y aunque no se sabe muy bien si tal dedicación ha servido en realidad para algo, sí es cierto que al menos se habló del tema, de su problemática específica, de la conservación de ríos y acuíferos, de las posibilidades de desarrollo, de los que tienen de sobra y a los que les falta.
El agua dulce es un recurso realmente en peligro, sobre todo en determinados puntos calientes del planeta. Durante el último siglo se ha venido doblando el consumo de agua potable cada veinte años debido al crecimiento demográfico, pero sobre todo a los excesos de consumo de los países desarrollados.
Más allá del derecho de los Estados al aprovechamiento de los recursos hídricos del Planeta, sobre una base de equidad y con una orientación de desarrollo sostenible, emerge hoy el derecho al agua de los ciudadanos del mundo como un derecho humano esencial vinculado al propio derecho a la vida.



Re-reading Foucault on Law, power and rights Nuevo esta semana

Re-reading Foucault: On Law, Power and Rights is the first collection in English fully to address the relevance of Michel Foucault's thought for law. Foucault is the best known and most cited of the late twentieth-century's 'theory' academics. His work continues to animate a range of different critical work across intellectual disciplines in the arts, humanities and social sciences. There has, however, been relatively little examination of the legal implications and applications of Foucault's work. This book fills that gap, providing an in-depth analysis of Foucault's thought as it pertains to a range of different legal themes, such as: the opposition between 'law' and 'the juridical'; the problem of moral and legal judgment; the historical basis of rights; and the political dimensions (and limitations) of contemporary human rights discourse. Including contributions from acknowledged experts on Foucault's work, as well as pieces by younger scholars, Re-reading Foucault: On Law, Power and Rights will be of considerable interest across a range of disciplines, including law, philosophy, political theory, sociology, social theory and criminology.

ISBN:9789587166903
Precio: 30,35€


En este libro los autores recogen diversos problemas y comprensiones del dolor en su íntima relación con lo humano desde una perspectiva filosófica. El dolor es aquello que nos configura como humanos, como seres contingentes y finitos, que cuestiona e interpela nuestra existencia en el mundo. Por eso, a lo largo del libro, el lector se encontrará con una multiplicidad estructurada de debates en torno a la naturaleza del dolor humano y su relación con diferentes ámbitos de la realidad, como la relgión, el lenguaje, el arte, la ciencia y la cultura. Abordar el dolor a través de este prisma filosófico encierra la complejidad de comprender lo humano desde el dolor de mundo.

Precio: 14,99€


Le nom « autisme », reçu comme une évidence, désigne depuis plus d’un demi-siècle une forme extrême de maladie mentale. Pour autant, sait-on dans quels champs de savoirs il a été forgé, à travers quels débats, quels conflits, quels emprunts ? Marie-Claude Thomas débrouille ici l’écheveau textuel où se lit comment Bleuler a réduit l’auto-érotisme de Freud en autisme. Sa « pensée autistique » décrivait un esprit livré à la fantaisie, au rêve, à la poésie : présente chez tout un chacun, elle envahissait la vie du schizophrène. On la retrouve au fondement même de la psychologie de l’enfant, notamment chez Piaget. Trente ans plus tard, sur un autre continent, un médecin lancé dans la toute jeune psychiatrie infantile rencontre quelques enfants mutiques, enfoncés dans une « seulitude » qui semble les couper de toute affectivité. Il les baptise d’un mot dont l’emploi restait jusque-là plutôt mineur : « autistes ». Le syndrome de Kanner était né.



Health Standards for Long Duration and Exploration Spaceflight: Ethics Principles, Responsibilities, Nuevo esta semana

Precio: 45 $


Since its inception, the U.S. human spaceflight program has grown from launching a single man into orbit to an ongoing space presence involving numerous crewmembers. As the U.S. space program evolves, propelled in part by increasing international and commercial collaborations, long duration or exploration spaceflights - such as extended stays on the International Space Station or missions to Mars - become more realistic. These types of missions will likely expose crews to levels of known risk that are beyond those allowed by current health standards, as well as to a range of risks that are poorly characterized, uncertain, and perhaps unforeseeable. As the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and Congress discuss the next generation of NASA's missions and the U.S. role in international space efforts, it is important to understand the ethical factors that drive decision making about health standards and mission design for NASA activities

Precio: 19,99Libras



Deals with all the common symptoms encountered by those who care for children with life-limiting conditions
Discusses challenging areas of paediatric palliative care such as ethics, religious rituals, and legality around death
Contains a detailed drug formulary for quick access to the latest drug dosages of medication
Looking after children with life-limiting conditions can be very difficult for both the parents as well as the health care professionals who may only see a few cases in their career. Paediatric Palliative Care is full of easily-accesible, detailed information on medical conditions and symptoms and includes specific management plans. While the book encompasses symptom control, it also considers the philosophy and models that support delivery of palliative medicine to children, while also covering practical delivery of palliative medicine, relating to other professionals and to families, and the learning and coping skills required in palliative care. It also contains a quick-reference drug formulary.

While specialization in paediatric palliative medicine is increasing, for most children with a life-limiting condition, the majority of their care is still provided by professionals without specialist training and care may come from a general paediatric or other sub-specialist team. Others will be cared for by primary care teams, or sometimes by adult palliative medicine teams.The unique significance of this handbook is its capacity to facilitate practical bedside delivery of effective palliative medicine to children by professionals who have not trained or had experience of caring for the dying child.
Readership: Doctors, nurses and allied health professionals who look after children with life-limiting conditions.

Precio: 55$


An estimated 48 percent of the population takes at least one prescription drug in a given month. Drugs provide great benefits to society by saving or improving lives. Many drugs are also associated with side effects or adverse events, some serious and some discovered only after the drug is on the market. The discovery of new adverse events in the postmarketing setting is part of the normal natural history of approved drugs, and timely identification and warning about drug risks are central to the mission of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Not all risks associated with a drug are known at the time of approval, because safety data are collected from studies that involve a relatively small number of human subjects during a relatively short period.

Written in response to a request by the FDA, Ethical and Scientific Issues in Studying the Safety of Approved Drugs discusses ethical and informed consent issues in conducting studies in the postmarketing setting. It evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of various approaches to generate evidence about safety questions, and makes recommendations for appropriate followup studies and randomized clinical trials. The book provides guidance to the FDA on how it should factor in different kinds of evidence in its regulatory decisions.

Precio:7,49$


Political, economic, social, cultural and technological changes have led to profound transformations in the ways that death and loss are perceived and managed in contemporary society. Over the last few decades, the long term shift to chronic illness as a major causal factor has significantly increased the time scale of dying. Most people die in institutions and 'care' is typically medical. Many communities and ordinary citizens now relinquish control and involvement to experts in the last stages of life.

At global and local levels, however, new arrangements are emerging to govern the changing face of death, and a reorientation model is being developed to counter claims of the 'creeping medicalisation' of death and dying. With an international authorship and scope, this book illustrates the interlinking nature of society, death and loss, and it gives examples of governance that promotes the empowerment, participation and the increasing need for the involvement of ordinary people and communities in differing social and cultural contexts.

In the past 30 years, the population of prisoners in the United States has expanded almost 5-fold, correctional facilities are increasingly overcrowded, and more of the country's disadvantaged populations—racial minorities, women, people with mental illness, and people with communicable diseases such as HIV/AIDS, hepatitis C, and tuberculosis—are under correctional supervision.
Because prisoners face restrictions on liberty and autonomy, have limited privacy, and often receive inadequate health care, they require specific protections when involved in research, particularly in today's correctional settings. Given these issues, the Department of Health and Human Services' Office for Human Research Protections commissioned the Institute of Medicine to review the ethical considerations regarding research involving prisoners.

Emerging and Readily Available Technologies and National Security is a study on the ethical, legal, and societal issues relating to the research on, development of, and use of rapidly changing technologies with low barriers of entry that have potential military application, such as information technologies, synthetic biology, and nanotechnology. The report also considers the ethical issues associated with robotics and autonomous systems, prosthetics and human enhancement, and cyber weapons. These technologies are characterized by readily available knowledge access, technological advancements that can take place in months instead of years, the blurring of lines between basic research and applied research, and a high uncertainty about how the future trajectories of these technologies will evolve and what applications will be possible.

Dual loyalties exist in many medical fields, from occupational health to public health. Military health professionals, as all health professionals, are ethically responsible for their patients' well-being. In some situations, however, military health professionals can face unique ethical tensions between responsibilities to individual patients and responsibilities to military operations.

This book summarizes the one-day workshop, Military Medical Ethics: Issues Regarding Dual Loyalties, which brought together academic, military, human rights, and health professionals to discuss these ethical challenges. The workshop examined two case studies: decisions regarding returning a servicemember to duty after a closed head injury, and decisions on actions by health professionals regarding a hunger strike by detainees. The workshop also addressed the need for improvements in medical ethics training and outlined steps for organizations to take in supporting better ethical awareness and use of ethical sta

Teología Moral Especial aborda la comprensión teológica del hombre, creado para la gloria de Dios, como el arranque lógico de la dimensión moral de la existencia humana. Es la persona trascendida lo que proporciona sentido a la dimensión ética de la existencia cristiana. De esta manera, la condición finalista de la acción moral constituye un tema de importancia radical. Se ocupa del matrimonio y de la familia como el ámbito donde el hombre realiza, después de las relaciones con Dios, su dimensión ética fundamental. La libertad del hombre se encuentra ante una insoslayable tarea moral que ni el legislador, la cultura o la ideología, pueden sofocar: mantener el bien de la unidad entre diferencia sexual, amor y fecundidad. La Bioética es el ámbito donde se plantea la cuestión fundamental: «si el hombre es producto de sí mismo o depende de Dios», si la razón está o no abierta a la trascendencia, si la identidad de la vida responde al criterio último de la autonomía humana o comporta «la acción creadora de Dios».

Elder Abuse and Its Prevention is the summary of a workshop convened in April 2013 by the Institute of Medicine's Forum on Global Violence Prevention. Using an ecological framework, this workshop explored the burden of elder abuse around the world, focusing on its impacts on individuals, families, communities, and societies. Additionally, the workshop addressed occurrences and co-occurrences of different types of abuse, including physical, sexual, emotional, and financial, as well as neglect. The ultimate objective was to illuminate promising global and multisectoral evidence-based approaches to the prevention of elder maltreatment. While the workshop covered scope and prevalence and unique characteristics of abuse, the intention was to move beyond what is known about elder abuse to foster discussions about how to improve prevention, intervention, and mitigation of the victims' needs, particularly through collaborative efforts. The workshop discussions included innovative intervention models and opportunities for prevention across sectors and settings.

Precio:39$


Sharing data generated through the conduct of clinical trials offers the promise of placing evidence about the safety and efficacy of therapies and clinical interventions on a firmer basis and enhancing the benefits of clinical trials. Ultimately, such data sharing - if carried out appropriately - could lead to improved clinical care and greater public trust in clinical research and health care.

Discussion Framework for Clinical Trial Data Sharing: Guiding Principles, Elements, and Activities is part of a study of how data from clinical trials might best be shared. This document is designed as a framework for discussion and public comment. This framework is being released to stimulate reactions and comments from stakeholders and the public. The framework summarizes the committee's initial thoughts on guiding principles that underpin responsible sharing of clinical trial data, defines key elements of clinical trial data and data sharing, and describes a selected set of clinical trial data sharing activities.

In the nearly 40 years since implementation of federal regulations governing the protection of human participants in research, the number of clinical studies has grown exponentially. These studies have become more complex, with multisite trials now common, and there is increasing use of archived biospecimens and related data, including genomics data. In addition, growing emphasis on targeted cancer therapies requires greater collaboration and sharing of research data to ensure that rare patient subsets are adequately represented. Electronic records enable more extensive data collection and mining, but also raise concerns about the potential for inappropriate or unauthorized use of data, bringing patient protections into a new landscape. There are also long-standing concerns about the processes and forms used to obtain informed consent from patients participating in clinical studies. These changes and challenges raise new ethical and practical questions for the oversight of clinical studies, and for protecting patients and their health information in an efficient manner that does not compromise the progress of biomedical research.

The global burden of chronic non-communicable diseases (NCDs), such as hypertension, diabetes and cancers, and of common mental disorders such as depression and anxiety, has a disproportionate impact on the low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) of Africa, Asia and Latin America. The pattern persists in African and Asian migrant populations in European and North American countries, despite the higher standards of living and improved health infrastructure. The consensus of experts is that pragmatic, cost-effective and sustainable interventions are required, and that these must prioritise the social determinants of NCDs as well as the social participation of affected communities. Despite the growing emphasis on the role of social processes in health system responses to chronic disease in LMICs, there has been no definitive volume that brings together LMIC perspectives on these issues.

This book aims to address this major gap by presenting new conceptual and empirical perspectives on the interconnections between culture, ethnicity and chronic conditions in LMICs and their implications for research, intervention and policy. The chapters focus on lay and institutional meanings, experiences and responses to chronic conditions in selected countries in Africa, Europe and the Caribbean.

This book was originally published as a special issue of Ethnicity and Health.

Scientific advances such as the sequencing of the human genome have created great promise for improving human health by providing a greater understanding of disease biology and enabling the development of new drugs, diagnostics, and preventive services. However, the translation of research advances into clinical applications has so far been slower than anticipated. This is due in part to the complexity of the underlying biology as well as the cost and time it takes to develop a product. Pharmaceutical companies are adapting their business models to this new reality for product development by placing increasing emphasis on leveraging alliances,

Precio:45 libras


The underlying themes of this book are twofold: it emphasises the importance of understanding and strengthening health systems to improve a population’s health in low and middle income countries; it promotes the values of equity and the right to health, efficiency, participative and accountable decision-making, and the need for a long-term perspective. These values are examined in relation to governance, policy making and planning, financing, managing, and intersectoral action for health and health service delivery, with a chapter devoted to each.

By permeating the health system with these values, the authors seek to develop a good health system. This would have access to a level of resources commensurate with the national level of income, and use of these resources in the most efficient way to ensure an equitable and maximized level of health, sustainable over the long term. Moreover, it would empower the health system members in areas concerning their health and contributes towards wider social cohesion and mores.

“Repensando la responsabilidad sanitaria” no pretende ser una obra dedicada al análisis meramente descriptivo de esta materia, sino que intenta aportar un nuevo enfoque con vocación crítica, donde la perspectiva ética y su necesaria integración en la norma cobra una particular dimensión, a fin de ofrecer una visión de las relaciones entre el Derecho y la Medicina que permita limar ciertas diferencias entre estas dos ciencias, con muchos aspectos antagonistas, para, superándolos, ofrecer un conjunto de “soluciones jurídicas a los conflictos en sanidad”.
Como dice en el prólogo el magistrado Xíol Ríos “constituye una valiosa aportación al Derecho sanitario por parte de un jurista experimentado, que lo aborda teniendo en cuenta el estado actual del pensamiento no solo en el plano jurídico sino también en el plano ético (…) La obra constituye, así, una estimulante aportación para los juristas especializados en Derecho sanitario y, al propio tiempo, una eficaz introducción para los juristas que aborden por primera vez esta materia y deseen tener un panorama general de los problemas fundamentales que se plantean en la misma”.

L’évidence de la différence sexuelle présente quelque chose de révoltant pour l’esprit : comment deux êtres si semblables peuvent-ils être si dissemblables ? Et la conjonction occasionnelle de ces deux-là dans l’acte qui les fait tout à la fois s’unir et se heurter n’annule pas l’écart.
Une fois bien ou mal effectué ledit rapprochement, chacun des partenaires peut ressentir comme un lointain écho de la forte parole de Maxime le Confesseur : « Car l’union, en écartant la séparation, n’a point porté atteinte à la différence ». À quoi revient alors de voir dans cette différence, non plus le gond qui ferait l’un porte, l’autre chambranle, mais un hiatus irréductible, un bâillement sans commissures, une solution de continuité sans appel : « Il n’y a pas de rapport sexuel » ?

The broadest and most comprehensive treatment of individual virtues and vices in the contemporary literature
Lays out the relationship between individual virtues and recent work in virtue ethics
Covers the major categories of virtues (e.g., cardinal, epistemic, theological)
Explores the role virtue plays in a wide spectrum of academic disciplines
Essays throughout engage relevant literature in related disciplines (e.g., psychology, economics)
Virtues and Their Vices is the only extant contemporary, comprehensive treatment of specific virtues and, where applicable, their competing vices. Each of the essays, written exclusively for this volume, not only locates discussion of that virtue in its historical context, but also advances the discussion and debate concerning the understanding and role of the virtues. Each of the first four sections focuses on a particular, historically important class of virtues: the cardinal virtues, the capital vices (or 'seven deadly sins') and the corrective virtues, intellectual virtues, and the theological virtues. The final section discusses the role virtue theory and the virtues themselves play in a number of disciplines, ranging from theology and political theory to neurobiology and feminism. The treatment of the virtues in this present volume is sensitive to the historical heritage of the virtues, including their theological heritage, without paying undue attention to the historical and theological issues. Virtues and Their Vices engages contemporary philosophical scholarship as well as relevant scholarship from related disciplines throughout. It is a unique and compelling addition to the philosophical treatment of the virtues as well as their import in a wide spectrum of disciplines.
Readership: Students and scholars of the philosophy of virtue; ethicists; theologians

Este libro es la declaración de un compromiso. En un momento en el que la filosofía y la política buscan la comunidad como algo a recuperar y lo común como algo a producir colectivamente, este libro propone un paso atrás: descubrir el mundo común en el que ya estamos, queramos o no, implicados. Parte de la pregunta por el nosotros y desemboca en una voz en singular capaz de decir «esta vida es mía».
Apropiarnos de nuestra vida es, hoy, liberar la riqueza del mundo que compartimos. Para ello, el pensamiento crítico necesita ganar una nueva perspectiva: la de un cuerpo involucrado en la vida como problema común.


Marina Garcés (Barcelona, 1973) trabaja como profesora de filosofía en la Universidad de Zaragoza. En 2002 publicó "En las prisiones de lo posible" en esta misma editorial y desde entonces ha llevado a cabo una amplia labor de experimentación con el pensamiento y con la escritura, principalmente a través del proyecto colectivo Espai en Blanc.

The Ethics of Animal Recreation and Modification studies philosophical and ethical issues arising from new technological possibilities to repair the loss of animal diversity. Several research groups are currently working toward re-creating extinct animals such as the woolly mammoth by the methods of modern genomic technology and of selective breeding. These projects challenge the main underlying tenet of conservation ethics: the extinction of a species is irreversible. For this reason alone, the idea of de-extinction, or reversing extinction, is troublesome. The purpose of this volume is to offer systematic philosophical and ethical analysis on animal de-extinction in the context of ecological restoration. The collection consists of an introduction, epilogue and nine new articles written by philosophers. The intended readership consists of academic philosophers, ecologists and others interested in conservation biology.
