Of Bodies and Symptoms: Anthropological Perspectives on their Social and Medical Treatment Popular

Hits: 225
Valoración:0.00 (0 votos)

Categoría: a) Fundamentación de la bioética
Autor:Diversos autors. A cura de Sylvie Fainzang i Claudie Haxaire
Edición: Universitat Rovira i Virgili, 2014
ISBN: 978-84-694-4991-2
Precio: 10€


The question of the social treatment of the body and its transformations emerges in relation to issues of varying types (economic, therapeutic, ideological, cultural, aesthetic, commercial, technical). This book examines the various ways of managing bodily symptoms or transformations and the social stakes and systems of knowledge which relate to them, both on the medical and social level. The contributions provide analyses that concern a broad range of countries. Through the themes it tackles and the subjects it examines, this book reveals both the universal nature of the questions it asks, and the evolution of the objects and approaches of anthropology itself.



Ofensores sexuales. Patología vista desde la Neurociencia, Neuroética y Derecho Penal Popular

Autor: Martínez de Marzano
Edición: Académica Española, 2012
ISBN:978-3845499123
Precio: 36,02€


Los avances de la neurociencia en el Siglo XXI, para descubrir los enigmas del cerebro, han permitido analizar con otro enfoque, un tema candente, difícil y controvertido, como es el de la patología de los Ofensores Sexuales. Esto permite, además, ampliar y completar el tema de la rehabilitación –Neuroética mediante- y comprometiendo por su gran trascendencia social, a los Estados Jurídicos a actualizar las leyes, moviéndose con los tiempos, a fin de poder estructurar en conjunto las técnicas terapéuticas que permitan no solo la inserción social de los Ofensores Sexuales que verdaderamente se rehabilitan, sino además del preocupante tema del tratamiento de los reincidentes. Si bien organizaciones como la IATSO y la ATSA, más cientos de terapeutas en todo el mundo, están dando cuenta de ello, falta aún una verdadera integración interdisciplinaria, pues los enormes esfuerzos en gran parte se pierden en las individualidades.

ISBN:9788416620159
Precio: 14€


Cada vez que Ramon Bayés sube al metro o a un autobús, los pasajeros más jóvenes saltan de su sitio con gesto altruista para cederle el asiento. Es inevitable: el autor acaba de cumplir ochenta y cinco años, una edad en la que se puede parecer viejo a los ojos de los demás?
Pero a Ramon Bayés la vejez no lo desvela y a veces debe esforzarse para ser plenamente consciente de su edad. ¿Cómo lo hace? ¿Hay acaso alguna fórmula? ¿Está la verdadera naturaleza de la vejez determinada por los números que sumamos? El autor parece haber encontrado una feliz respuesta: mientras seamos
autónomos y mantengamos siempre viva la curiosidad, no hay razón para no despertarnos entonando cada mañana el triunfante grito de Tarzán.
Olvida tu edad es el resultado de las reflexiones de un espíritu joven, vital y, sobre todo, curioso. Y es también el recorrido de una mente generosa y erudita, capaz de analizar con agudeza los más diversos temas, y que sabe lo que significa envejecer bien, jubilarse, afrontar los problemas, sin dejar por ello de vivir aquí
y ahora.



On Complicity and Compromise Popular

Precio: 25Libras


Taxpayers are complicit in the illegal wars waged by their governments.' 'Corporations are complicit in human rights abuses perpetrated by their suppliers.' 'Aid workers who compromise with militias are complicit in their reign of terror.' We hear such allegations all the time. Yet there are many ways of being mixed up with the wrongdoing of others. They are not all on a par, morally; some are worse than others. Furthermore, complicitly contributing to wrongdoing, while still wrong in itself, might nonetheless be the right thing to do if that is the only way to achieve some greater good. Drawing on philosophy, law and political science, and on a wealth of practical experience delivering emergency medical services in conflict-ridden settings, Lepora and Goodin untangle the complexities surrounding compromise and complicity: carefully cataloguing their many varieties; identifying the dimensions along which those differ; and explaining why some are morally more worrying than others. Lepora and Goodin summarize their analysis in a formula that can be used as a decision heuristic for assessing any given act of complicity. They go on to illustrate its practical usefulness by applying it first to some stylized philosophical examples and then, in a more sustained way, to two vexing cases of complicity in the real world: the complicity of humanitarian aid organizations with genocidaires controlling Rwandan refugee camps; and the complicity of physicians treating patients who are being subjected to torture. Both rigorous and rooted, this is a book for philosophers and practitioners alike.
Readership: Scholars and students of political science, moral and political philosophy, ethics, conflict studies, and NGOs.



On Face Transplantation: Life and Ethics in Experimental Biomedicine Popular

Autor: Samuel Taylor-Alexander
Edición: Palgrave Pivot, 2014
ISBN: Palgrave Pivot
Precio: 54$


Drawing together interview material, medical publications, and first-hand accounts, this book shows that what is being remade in the burgeoning medical field of face transplantation is not only the lives of patients, but also the very ways that state institutions, surgeons, and families make sense of rights, claims for inclusion, and life itself. This sophisticated account traces the work done by medical and bureaucratic elites to make the life threatening operation a clinical reality. Working within the context of increasing ethical scrutiny, their endeavour has resulted in the delineation of the 'ideal patient' of face transplantation: a person whose particular state of health and suffering allows the operation to be performed given current technical constraints. The operation has introduced into the lives of face transplant recipients a profoundly new sense of personhood in which they continue to negotiate questions of how to relate to their new biology and to those around them.

A compelling argument for the morality of limitations on procreation in lessening the harmful effects of unchecked population growth issue

We live in a world where a burgeoning global population has started to have a major and deleterious environmental impact, leading to climate change and the struggle for limited resources being inevitable aspects of a difficult future. Many see mandatory population control as a possible last resort to combat this problem, but also a potentially immoral and undesirable violation of human rights. With the prevalent consideration of procreation as components of the right to personal happiness and anatomy, the view remains that the government does not have the right to impose on its own citizens for the sake of future people who have yet to exist.

Though others have argued for the permissibility of voluntarily limiting ourselves to one child per couple, Sarah Conly is first to make the contentious argument that not only is it wrong to have more than one child in the face of such concerns, we do not even retain the right to do so. In One Child, Conly proposes that personal rights are not unlimited, especially if one's body may cause harm to anyone, and that the government has a moral obligation to protect both current and future citizens. Through her accessible style, Conly gives readers a thought-provoking exposure to the issue of population growth and develops a well-organized defense of moral obligation to generations both present and future.

Autor: Daniel A. Cronin

ISBN: 978-0-935372-55-7
Precio: 34,95€


Originally published as a doctoral dissertation, Archbishop Daniel Cronin’s survey of moral theology on the topic of ordinary and extraordinary means remains the standard reference work on this critically important distinction for end-of-life decision making. Continuously cited since its original publication, this revised edition brings the classic text back into print after ten years. Cronin examines all of the major authors from the Catholic historical tradition, showing how the difference between ordinary and extraordinary means has developed over the years with the progress of medical science. "Cronin identifies and applies Church teaching to medical treatment from the thirteenth century to the middle of the twentieth century. At each point in history, advances in medicine, with case-specific examples, are analyzed in relationship to the obligation to conserve life. Cronin shows how, centuries before society was faced with questions like those raised by the case of Terri Schiavo, theological insight into a set of consistently recognized obligations to conserve life has provided both physician and patient with moral direction. Th at same tradition also identifi es a relative norm under which these imperatives would not be considered obligatory.” (Marie T. Hilliard, from the Foreword)



Organ Donation and the Divine Lien in Talmudic Law: A Pound of Flesh Popular

Autor: Madeline Kochen
Edición: Cambridge University Press, 2014
ISBN:978-0521493383
Precio: 89,10€


This book offers a new theory of property and distributive justice derived from Talmudic law, illustrated by a case study involving the sale of organs for transplant. Although organ donation did not exist in late antiquity, this book posits a new way, drawn from the Talmud, to conceive of this modern means of giving to others. Our common understanding of organ transfers as either a gift or sale is trapped in a dichotomy that is conceptually and philosophically limiting. Drawing on Maussian gift theory, this book suggests a different legal and cultural meaning for this property transfer. It introduces the concept of the "divine lien," an obligation to others in need built into the definition of all property ownership. Rather than a gift or sale, organ transfer is shown to exemplify an owner's voluntary recognition and fulfillment of this latent property obligation.

A panoramic overview of biotechnologies that can endlessly boost human capabilities and the drastic changes these “superhuman” traits could trigger

Biotechnology is moving fast. In the coming decades, advanced pharmaceuticals, bioelectronics, and genetic interventions will be used not only to heal the sick but to boost human physical and mental performance to unprecedented levels. People will have access to pills that make them stronger and faster, informatic devices will interface seamlessly with the human brain, and epigenetic modification may allow people to reshape their own physical and mental identities at will.

Until recently, such major technological watersheds—like the development of metal tools or the industrialization of manufacturing—came about incrementally over centuries or longer. People and social systems had time to adapt: they gradually developed new values, norms, and habits to accommodate the transformed material conditions. But contemporary society is dangerously unprepared for the dramatic changes it is about to experience down this road on which it is already advancing at an accelerating pace.

Precio: 10,58$


Using the examples of Vioxx, Celebrex, cholesterol-lowering statin drugs, and anti-depressants, Overdosed America shows that at the heart of the current crisis in American medicine lies the commercialization of medical knowledge itself.

Drawing on his background in statistics, epidemiology, and health policy, John Abramson, M.D., reveals the ways in which the drug companies have misrepresented statistical evidence, misled doctors, and compromised our health. The good news is that the best scientific evidence shows that reclaiming responsibility for your own health is often far more effective than taking the latest blockbuster drug.

You—and your doctor—will be stunned by this unflinching exposé of American medicine.

“My choice for the economics book of the year…it’s the best description I have yet read of a huge economic problem that we know how to solve—but is so often misunderstood.”—David Leonhardt, New York Times

Our health care is staggeringly expensive, yet one in six Americans has no health insurance. We have some of the most skilled physicians in the world, yet one hundred thousand patients die each year from medical errors. In this gripping, eye-opening book, award-winning journalist Shannon Brownlee takes readers inside the hospital to dismantle some of our most venerated myths about American medicine. Brownlee dissects what she calls “the medical-industrial complex” and lays bare the backward economic incentives embedded in our system, revealing a stunning portrait of the care we now receive.

Nevertheless, Overtreated ultimately conveys a message of hope by reframing the debate over health care reform. It offers a way to control costs and cover the uninsured while simultaneously improving the quality of American medicine. Shannon Brownlee’s humane, intelligent, and penetrating analysis empowers readers to avoid the perils of overtreatment, as well as pointing the way to better health care for everyone.

With a new afterword offering practical advice to patients on how to navigate the health care system.

Precio: 90 Libras


Presents over 50 chapters from leading authorities in the sciences and humanities, providing an exhaustive and commanding review of a rapidly growing field
Exceptionally broad in its coverage, with key themes including: consciousness and intention, pharmacological cognitive enhancement (smart drugs), and ageing and dementia

The past two decades have seen unparalleled developments in our knowledge of the brain and mind. However, these advances have forced us to confront head-on some significant ethical issues regarding our application of this information in the real world- whether using brain images to establish guilt within a court of law, or developing drugs to enhance cognition.

Historically, any consideration of the ethical, legal, and social implications of emerging technologies in science and medicine has lagged behind the discovery of the technology itself. These delays have caused problems in the acceptability and potential applications of biomedical advances and posed significant problems for the scientific community and the public alike - for example in the case of genetic screening and human cloning. The field of Neuroethics aims to proactively anticipate ethical, legal and social issues at the intersection of neuroscience and ethics, raising questions about what the brain tells us about ourselves, whether the information is what people want or ought to know, and how best to communicate it.

A landmark in the academic literature, the Oxford Handbook of Neuroethics presents a pioneering review of a topic central to the sciences and humanities. It presents a range of chapters considering key issues, discussion, and debate at the intersection of brain and ethics. The handbook contains more than 50 chapters by leaders from around the world and a broad range of sectors of academia and clinical practice spanning the neurosciences, medical sciences and humanities and law. The book focuses on and provides a platform for dialogue of what neuroscience can do, what we might expect neuroscience will do, and what neuroscience ought to do. The major themes include: consciousness and intention; responsibility and determinism; mind and body; neurotechnology; ageing and dementia; law and public policy; and science, society and international perspectives.

Tackling some of the most significant ethical issues that face us now and will continue to do so over the coming decades, The Oxford Handbook of Neuroethics will be an essential resource for the field of neuroethics for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, basic scientists in the neurosciences and psychology, scholars in humanities and law, as well as physicians practising in the areas of primary care in neurological medicine.

Precio: 125 €

First comprehensive reference text to examine the growing area of spirituality in healthcare. Organised into six substantive and interrelated sections for ease of navigation. Written by a team of international editors and authors.

The relationship between spirituality and healthcare is historical, intellectual and practical, and it has now emerged as a significant field in health research, healthcare policy and clinical practice and training. Understanding health and wellbeing requires addressing spiritual and existential issues, and healthcare is therefore challenged to respond to the ways spirituality is experienced and expressed in illness, suffering, healing and loss. If healthcare has compassionate regard for the humanity of those it serves it is faced with questions about how it understands and interprets spirituality, what resources it should make available and how these are organised, and the ways in which spirituality shapes and informs the purpose and practice of healthcare? These questions are the basis for this book that presents a coherent field of enquiry, discussion and debate that is interdisciplinary, international and vibrant.

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.

A comprehensive analysis of legal and ethical issues related to paediatric patient and family centred care
Gives a unique legal and ethical analysis of pediatric health care delivery models
Discusses the practical application and implementation of health care delivery models
This book provides the reader with a theoretical and practical understanding of two health care delivery models: the patient/child centred care and family-centred care. Both are fundamental to caring for children in healthcare organizations. The authors address their application in a variety of paediatric healthcare contexts, as well as the ethical and legal issues they raise. Each model is increasingly pursued as a vehicle for guiding the delivery of health care in the best interests of children. Such models of health care delivery shape health care policies, programs, facility design, resource allocation decisions and day-to-day interactions among patients, families, physicians and other health care professionals. To maximize the health and ethical benefits these models offer, there must be shared understanding of what the models entail, as well as the ethical and legal synergies and tensions they can create. This book is a valuable resource for paediatricians, nurses, trainees, graduate students, practitioners of ethics and health policy.

ISBN:978-1421413655
Precio:26,96€


Keith Wailoo examines how pain and compassionate relief define a line between society's liberal trends and conservative tendencies. Tracing the development of pain theories in politics, medicine, and law, and legislative and social quarrels over the morality and economics of relief, Wailoo points to a tension at the heart of the conservative-liberal divide.

Beginning with the advent of a pain relief economy after World War II in response to concerns about recovering soldiers, Wailoo explores the 1960s rise of an expansive liberal pain standard, along with the emerging conviction that subjective pain was real, disabling, and compensable. These concepts were attacked during the Reagan era of the 1980s, when a conservative political backlash led to decreasing disability aid and the growing role of the courts as arbiters in the politicized struggle to define pain.

Cómo trascender el duelo y amar la vida
«Cuando muere una persona inmensamente querida con la que compartíamos un proyecto de vida, nuestra realidad se rompe. Nos sentimos solos, desgarrados, vacíos, sin tierra bajo los pies… Así me sentí yo durante mucho tiempo cuando murió mi hijo Ignasi en 1998.
Durante la travesía de mi largo duelo he podido constatar que el amor es lo único que de verdad nos sostiene, que no es posible dejar atrás la rabia, el dolor, la culpa o la locura si no miramos, en silencio, en nuestro interior y dejamos ir con cariño el pesado lastre que arrastramos hasta quedar desnudos.
Empecé a ver la luz al final del túnel cuando tuve la certeza de que el perdón nos libera, de que la alegría no depende de lo que ocurre fuera porque el poder de vivir feliz y en paz está dentro de nosotros y poco o nada tiene que ver con lo que nos suceda.»
Las palabras de este libro ayudarán al lector a trascender el dolor, crear ilusión y armonía en la familia y sentir que la vida vuelve a tener sentido.

Current projections indicate that by 2050 the number of people aged over 80 years old will rise to 395 million and that by this date 25-30% of people over the age of 85 will show some degree of cognitive decline. Palliative care for older people: A public health perspective provides a comprehensive account of the current state of palliative care for older people worldwide and illustrates the range of concomitant issues that, as the global population ages, will ever more acutely shape the decisions of policy-makers and care-givers.

The book begins by outlining the range of policies towards palliative care for older people that are found worldwide. It follows this by examining an array of socio-cultural issues and palliative care initiatives, from the care implications of health trajectories of older people to the spiritual requirements of palliative care patients, and from the need to encourage compassion towards end-of-life care within communities to the development of care pathways for older people.

Participatory research is a relatively new method of researching practice especially within palliative care. It differs from other methodologies in that there is an expectation of action within the research process. The values that underpin participatory research are collaboration, empowerment, and reflection. In the current climate of collaboration and working with people in healthcare, participatory research methods are gaining increasing interest when there is a desire to bring about change. Organisational change is becoming an important focus as we look at ways of not only reducing costs but at the same time improving quality of care.

While palliative care puts the patient and family at the centre, Participatory Research in Palliative Care discusses a new research methodology that puts practitioners at the heart of the research process as collaborators who work together with researchers to resolve problems in practice.

Divided into three sections, it provides theoretical groundings of action research, a greater focus on exemplars from studies within palliative care, and discusses prominent issues when using such a methodology. All three sections are illustrated by an action research study undertaken by the author within a palliative care setting.

Participatory Research in Palliative Care is written by international, multi-disciplinary authors who explore a collaborative approach to embark on research. It will appeal to health and social care professionals, academics undertaking research within palliative care, and the management of organisations where people with end of life care needs are cared for, including long-term care homes.
Readership: Suitable for health and social care professionals caring for people and their families at the end of life, as well as academics undertaking research within palliative care, and the management of organisations where people with end of life care needs are cared for, including long term care homes.

Durante todo este tiempo, la Cátedra de Bioética de la Universidad Pontificia Comillas ha contribuido activamente a la reflexión, diálogo y divulgación de la Bioética. Este año, ha querido celebrar su XXV Seminario Interdiciplinar reuniendo a las principales instituciones y autores que han sido y son referentes ineludibles en esta reflexión bioética. Este libro recoge la mirada histórica del mucho y buen trabajo realizado en todo este tiempo, la situación actual de esta disciplina que intenta servir a una sociedad en continuo cambio y las perspectivas de futuro que se plantean las principales instituciones que hoy por hoy dan forma a la Bioética española.

El Diccionario de Pastoral de la Salud y Bioética es el primero que se publica en castellano y cuenta con 200 amplios artículos. Nace como fruto de un largo proceso de gestación y su objetivo es contribuir a la formación de agentes de pastoral de la salud y de cualquier otra persona interesada por el sufrimiento y la salud humana desde el punto de vista de la fe, ya que son muchos los ambientes en los que la necesidad de un instrumento como este se ha hecho cada vez más patente.

Como otros diccionarios de similar envergadura también este ha convocado a un gran número de especialistas (en concreto a 120 de diferentes países) en las amplísimas materias que aborda, representantes de diferentes sectores de actividad e incluso de variadas sensibilidades culturales y pastorales. A ello cabe apuntarle el mérito de adentrarse en un mundo (el de la teología, pastoral de la salud y ética de la vida) en el que todavía quedan zonas por explorar y caminos por recorrer.

El presente libro tiene por objeto el análisis de las principales conductas relacionadas con las patentes farmacéuticas y los certificados complementarios de protección de medicamentos que pueden presentar problemas desde la óptica del Derecho de defensa de la competencia, una cuestión en la que han incidido recientemente las autoridades de defensa de la competencia. De este modo, en los distintos capítulos de la obra se examinan: a) el posible abuso de posición dominante por medio de la solicitud de estos derechos de propiedad industrial sobre medicamentos (solicitud fraudulenta, patent thickets); b) la negativa injustificada a licenciar y el fenómeno de los consorcios de patentes; c) los acuerdos para retrasar la entrada en el mercado de los medicamentos genéricos, d) la...



Patents as protection of traditional medical knowledge? a Law and economics analysis Popular

The protection of the knowledge and practises of local and indigenous groups has been discussed in various forums in recent times. International agreements such as the Convention on Biological Diversity address the importance of protecting traditional knowledge and practises, recognizing that this knowledge bears immense value in terms of its contribution to the conservation of biological diversity and its inputs to R&D in various fields. Experiences of the past, prominently the use of the Neem tree and the Turmeric plant, show that the benefits of traditional knowledge applications are allocated mainly to the follow-on developers and rarely to the original suppliers of the knowledge and practises. In the long term, this may result in restricted access to traditional knowledge to the detriment of social welfare. The book examines traditional knowledge protection in the area of traditional medical knowledge, often utilised in contemporary medicine, and consequently subject to patent protection. It provides a comparative view of the current patent regimes in major economies, specifically the US and the EU, and the consequences of the application of these laws to traditional medical knowledge and follow-on innovation, as well as the impact on underlying economic principles and opposing interests. The economic analysis of law is used to evaluate the current situation by comparing the effects of adapted patent regimes to alternative liability regimes or contractual agreements. This comparative and interdisciplinary approach taken gives valuable insights and inputs for future discussion.
