The philosophy and practice of medicine and bioethics : a naturalistic-humanistic approach by Barbara Maier( )

17 editions published in 2011 in English and German and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores currently unchallenged methods in medicine, such as "evidence-based medicine, from the perspectives of humanism and philosophy of medicine. The book discusses issues of medical treatment and moral approaches and indicates the strongest arguments. These arguments are subsequently subjected to critical analysis. The book includes new ways of thinking and explains, uses and exemplifies the "metaphorical method . The book argues that decision-making in medicine is inadequate unless grounded on a philosophy of medicine. As part of its argumentation, the book explores the insights offered by practical and humanistic philosophy and by creative and critical thinkers who are working on topics relevant to medicine. From this, a new and necessary definition of philosophy of life emerges: a good lifestyle no longer simply means getting physical exercise and abstaining from cigarettes and alcohol; it also means living a holistic life including all of one's thinking, personality and actions

Emotion in aesthetics by Warren A Shibles( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emotion in Aesthetics is the first book on aesthetics to provide an extensive theory of emotion; application of the cognitive-emotive theory to aesthetics; analysis of the relationship between aesthetics, metaphor and emotion; a full theory of meaning and its application to aesthetics; discussion of the relationship between aesthetics, music and language in terms of phonetics, phonology and intonation; an analysis of humanistic aesthetics; a well-developed naturalistic theory of ethics as applied to aesthetics and emotion. Stress is placed on the views of contemporary philosophers as well as some of the main historical accounts of emotion in aesthetics. The important recent work on emotion has not hitherto been applied to aesthetics. As a result there is still much confusion in aesthetics about aesthetic emotion and related concepts, such as the expression theory of emotion. The present book has been written to show how the theory can be used to clarify the issue, resulting in a major breakthrough in aesthetics. In addition, the theory presented is valuable in relating aesthetics to ethics and humanism

Emotion : a critical analysis for children by Warren A Shibles( Book )

7 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and Finnish and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part of the "Teaching Young People to be Critical Series," this booklet defines and analyzes emotions and emotional terms for children in light of theories of philosophers Ludwig Wittgenstein and John Dewey. Intended for individual or small group work, the objectives are threefold: reading improvement, reading enjoyment, and student involvement in making the leap from abstractions to practicalities in dealing with some of life's more common enigmas. Emotions are defined as thoughts which cause feelings. An emotion word such as love refers to a feeling (bodily sensation), a thought, a situation, and an action, and can be classified in this way. Stressing the use of reason, the book explains that it is possible to change an emotion by changing a thought and that a person creates and causes his own emotions. Negative emotions such as anger, guilt, and fear, and positive emotions such as humor and love are then discussed. Three principles are suggested for use in clarifying emotions: reducing all abstract terms and ideas to concrete and particular examples; being conscious of every action, thought, and feeling you have; and learning to be objective and rational. In summary, 1) emotions are thoughts which cause feelings, 2) emotions can be changed by changing the thought, 3) emotions are not just feelings, 4) the more clearly we think, the better we can avoid negative emotions and develop positive ones, and 5) emotions are caused by us, not by others or the situation.

The philosophy and practice of medicine and bioethics : a naturalistic-humanistic approach by Warren A Shibles( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book challenges the unchallenged methods in medicine, such as "evidence-based medicine," which claim to be, but often are not, scientific. It completes medical care by adding the comprehensive humanistic perspectives and philosophy of medicine. No specific or absolute recommendations are given regarding medical treatment, moral approaches, or legal advice. Given rather is discussion about each issue involved and the strongest arguments indicated. Each argument is subject to further critical analysis. This is the same position as with any philosophical, medical or scientific view. The argument that decision-making in medicine is inadequate unless grounded on a philosophy of medicine is not meant to include all of philosophy and every philosopher. On the contrary, it includes only sound, practical and humanistic philosophy and philosophers who are creative and critical thinkers and who have concerned themselves with the topics relevant to medicine. These would be those philosophers who engage in practical philosophy, such as the pragmatists, humanists, naturalists, and ordinary-language philosophers. A new definition of our own philosophy of life emerges and it is necessary to have one. Good lifestyle no longer means just abstaining from cigarettes, alcohol and getting exercise. It also means living a holistic life, which includes all of one's thinking, personality and actions. This book also includes new ways of thinking. In this regard the "Metaphorical Method" is explained, used, and exemplified in depth, for example in the chapters on care, egoism and altruism, letting die, etc
