Book Description

Peter Singer's remarkably clear and comprehensive Practical Ethics has become a classic introduction to applied ethics since its publication in 1979 and has been translated into many languages.For this second edition the author has revised all the existing chapters, added two new ones, and updated the bibliography.He has also added an appendix describing some of the deep misunderstanding of and consequent violent reaction to the book in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland where the book has tested the limits of freedom of speech.The focus of the book is the application of ethics to difficult and controversial social questions. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Missing the point
A lot of people miss the point of this book and think that Singer wants to kill mentally defective infants... That's not his point at all. Rather, he is providing a sound argument that shows why it is more morally wrong to kill an intelligent non-human (like a chimpanzee for example), than to kill a mentally defective infant. If anything, Singer wants more rights for animals, not less rights for humans. This book is worth the read because it really makes you think about what makes you a human and what makes you a person. All of Singer's arguments are valid and they have the potential to make you reconsider some of your own deep-seated beliefs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Transcending tradition: the ultimate challenge
Singer's "Practical Ethics" is a masterpiece of ethical reasoning. While many other philosophers clothe their arguments in the jargon of their discipline, Singer's arguments are methodical, rigorous, and easily comprehensible. The result is a book that is an enjoyable read for a lay person; a book that leads us down a path that few of us have travelled so carefully. This rigorous philosophy leads us--through Singer--to challenge the conclusions of countless famous ethicists throughout history. Furthermore, it challenges us to question our innate responses, those emotions ingrained in us by biology or society. If there is any lesson to be learned from "Practical Ethics" it's that it takes *courage* to reason ethically, and to recognise the moral transgressions that we have all committed in ignorance. . . . Although I don't agree with every conclusion of Singer's, his impeccable composition and clear logical process allow me to pinpoint the cause of our few differences. Despite any disagreement, this book is well worth reading for the ethical journey through which it guides you.

5-0 out of 5 stars Rebuttal of Jack by Don of Tallahassee
Jack states that it is Prof. Peter Singer's view that: "intelligence is no basis for determining ethical stature, that, for instance, the lives of humans are not worth more than the lives of animals simply because they are more intelligence (sic)..."

Not true. Instead Singer evaluates the value of a life based on the being's (including non-human sentient animals) own desire about continuing to live, its rationality and self-awareness over time and between places, and interestingly on its ability to plan and have desires for the future.

As such, Singer wites in the Chapter "What's Wrong With Killing?" that: "For preference utilitarians, taking the life of a person will normally be worse than taking the life of some other being, since people are highly future-orientated in their preferences."

Singer is controversial even when interpreted correctly, but he is exceptionally consistant, and I've found that - over 25 years from when I was at Monash Uni - in each case where I've initially disagreed with his analysis, eventually I've discovered that it was my own reasoning that was flawed.

A final point: one of Singer's basic beliefs is that we are not only responsible for what we do, but for what we could have prevented from happening, e.g. thousands of children suffering and dying weekly in developing nations due to inexpensively preventable causes.

Is it that that position is more difficult to take cheap shots at, so it is not much discussed by Singer critics? Or is it that these critics do not want to be distracted by some nagging moral responsibility as they shop for the latest in designer clothes, or a bigger SUV?

1-0 out of 5 stars Utilitarianism - A Pathological Exhibit
The first thing I recommend is that before reading "Practical Ethics", make sure you're acquainted with the principles of critical reading as discussed by Mortimer Adler in his brilliant "How To Read A Book".

Then turn for example to pages 12 and 13 of "Practical Ethics" and apply the principles of logic as discussed by Adler. Singer claims that the universal aspect of ethics (namely, that we make judgements from a universal, not a self-oriented, point of view) provides a persuasive reason for taking a utilitarian position. OK. Get ready to be strictly logical, and read his argument. Do you agree he has made the case?

Here is how it runs ( I summarise ):
1. Suppose the universal position is true.
2. It follows that my own interests as such cannot count for more than the interests of others.
3. Thus I must consider how to maximise the interests of all, equally considered.(2nd sentence, Para 2., p.13.)
4. Thus the universal principle inclines towards a utilitarian position.

My question: Neither 1 nor 2 implies 3. Nor do 1 and 2 in combination imply 3. At most 1 and 2 imply that IF "interests ought to be maximised" (the utilitarian doctrine or at least one variation thereof) is true, one must equally consider the interests of all. But Singer neglects to prove that "interests ought to be maximised" here. And nowhere else in his book does he establish it! Therefore Singer's "proof" is guilty of a common logical fallacy: it assumes (via 3) what has to be proved (4)

Since his entire argument is based on the utilitarian principle, and he fails to derive this successfully, his project is incomplete at the most critical point - its foundation. I know this sounds incredible, considering the esteem in which Singer is held. (Just read the reviews on the back cover.) But how can people blithely pass over such a sloppy piece of reasoning?

There are dozens of other examples of poor thinking in this book. Here's one more that needs discussion. If it's OK to kill babies and the pre-conscious in general because they're just that - not conscious, interest-generating beings - why is it not OK to kill people who are asleep or in comas? Singer replies (pp98,99) that older people asleep or unconscious have once had interests and desires, that and these continue to exist through sleep or inconsciousness. Well, they do and they don't. My ability to drive a car continues to exist while I'm asleep in this sense: if I wake up, I can drive a car. Sleep doesn't extinguish forever my ability to drive a car when I'm awake. But while I'm asleep I can't drive a car. The same rule applies to our having of interests or desires: namely, sleep doesn't extinguish our ability to revive acquired interests when we are awake, but while asleep we are no more "here and now interest or desire - having beings" than we are "beings who here and now can drive a car". The "having of interests" while asleep is not the same thing as the "having of interests" while awake and it is simply disingenuous to imply otherwise. And this point is crucial: Since while asleep I don't "have interests" in the relevant sense - I can't be satisfied by meeting desires or fulfill interests while asleep - it follows I'm in the same position in this respect as an unborn or young baby. Like me, the baby will at some future point acquire interests - only for her it will be for the first time. So why should my dormant interests count, but not the baby's latent interests?

Singer tries to get out of this by observing that even when awake sometimes we are not conscious of some desires until we advert to them.(See pp. 98,99.) Nevertheless, he says, those desires "remain a part of us". True, but irrelevant. Remember: the whole point of utilitarianism is to maximise interests. But interests can only be "met" while they are consciously held.[How grateful would we be if someone were to show us that long desired video while we were asleep?] How then, can interests - which because they are not consciously held are not able to be maximised - count in the consequentialist's calculus?

Singer might reply "Well, you could make these interests count as maximizable by for example reminding this person of her interests or by waking that person up". Sure you could. But are you obliged to? If not, then so what? If so, why? This could only imply that the goal of utilitarians not only to maximize extant (maximizable) interests, but to increase where possible the number of maximizable interests. But if so, are we not obliged not only to awaken dormant interests but also to allow this newborn baby to live so that it can eventually generate a heap of maximizable interests? We thus return to the original question: if babies, why not the sleeping?

The most frightening thing about Singer's book and doctrine is its uncritical reception by otherwise intelligent people. Sure, the man writes smoothly and comes across in print and on air as a genial chap. And for all I know, he may be sincere. Put that aside. These are life or death matters he is pronouncing upon. For heaven's sake, engage your critical faculties. I'm sure it won't take much of a work out before you agree with me that in this nice man's "ethic", mankind has edged one step closer to the abyss.

If you're still having trouble spotting the errors in Singer's book, get a hold of "Moral Theory" and other works by David S. Oderberg.

5-0 out of 5 stars A book Useful for Human Rights Academicians also!
Peter Singer's work "Practical Ethics" is very useful for those interested in Civil Rights or Human Rights. Chapters on 'Equality', 'Whats wrong with killing?', 'Environment' and 'Why act morally' should not be missed by anyone. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars This book is frustrating and time consuming!
I am not sure why my school chose this book/ Author. I have yet to meet anyone who enjoys using this book. I give it 2 stars only because it has all the NANDA dx in it (if you can find them!)I find it very time consuming. If you enjoy flipping back and forth to several pages without much help in finding what you are looking for, then this is the book for you. Index aside, this book needs to be more user friendly. I simply do not like the way it is organized. Risk Factors are seperate from Nursing DX, but stuck in the middle of the book, good luck following from one section to another! There is no friendly flow in this book to use it efficiently. Sorry, but I can't recommend this book. There has got to be a better way to write this book!

4-0 out of 5 stars One of the best Nsg Dx books written
This edition and its previous editions were well written. The books clarify each nursing diagnosis and gives an excellent list of "related to" topics. One of the most useful sections is the Errors in Dx Statements. This helps students from misinterpreting diagnosis by giving a different perspective and by leading the reading to the correct dx. Age group considerations are excellent as well as the follow-up principles. A must have book for every nursing student. I am still waiting for psychiatric dx to be included. Okay, maybe I was too hard on the handbook. We should have been required to buy the full book. Hurry up and publish the 8th Edition...I need it for school!!! -Curtis Chow

Book Description

The first edition of this book was highly acclaimed and became the definitive text in the area. Its successor has been substantially enlarged, revised and improved. New chapters cover the provision and economics of palliative care, measurement of pain and other symptoms, principles of drug use, interventional radiology, asthenia, pruritus and sweating, pediatric palliative care, AIDS in children, and multiprofessional education. A number of chapters have been completely or substantially re-written. Over 100 European and North American experts contribute to this edition, many for the first time.

The Textbook's wide-ranging approach details every aspect of palliative care--physical, emotional, social and spiritual--in both research and practice. Sections examine the scientific principles underlying the subject, and offer a thorough review of the current status of research in the field. Besides emphasizing the emotional and psychological needs of the dying, the book considers the suffering of the family and discusses bereavement, support, the involvement of relatives, and the issue of domiciliary care. Other chapters cover the ethical aspects of care, rehabilitation, and the education and training of health professionals. Although based on practice in the developed world, the growing relevance of palliative care in the developing world is stressed throughout. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Oxford Textbook of Palliative Medicine 3e
It's here. What we've all been waiting for. The third edition of the OTPM. And it does not disappoint.

This edition looks to be largely re-written, not just up-dated, and there are many new contributors. There is a new section on the palliation of non-malignant disease, which I think will be particularly useful for the majority of us who deal primarily with advanced cancer. New chapters deal with the role of each of the allied health professionals who make up the multidisciplinary team. There are also new chapters on the principles of evidence-based medicine and on learning communication skills, both of which I think are particularly welcome.

It is not possible to review each section of what is a very large textbook. Overall, it provides good coverage of the whole field of palliative medicine. Duplication, as may occur in any multi-authored text, has been kept to a minimum. Although it has about the same number of pages, the use of a smaller (but very legible) font gives the impression that this edition is considerably larger and has a lot more information than the previous one. I have to declare that I wrote the chapter on HIV/AIDS in Adults, about which nothing more will be said, but had nothing else to do with the production of this book.

Is it up to date? I browsed a few areas where practice has changed in the last few years and found good coverage for selective COX-2 inhibitors, NMDA receptor antagonists and interventional radiology, although the usefulness of low molecular weight heparins in palliative care has not been emphasized.

Is it worth it? The book is not cheap by anybody's standards. But the answer has to be yes because this book will remain the gold standard reference in palliative medicine for the next few years at least. The editors are to be congratulated on the successful completion of what is a very impressive reference. And all who work in palliative medicine owe a debt of gratitude to Derek Doyle, who has now pioneered this book through three editions.

This is a very easy to read book that gives a basic overview of the fundamentals in several areas of radiology. It provided a great quick reference for looking up practical questions in radiology. It was great for the days leading up to the oral exams when I wanted to refresh my memory in certain areas without having to lug around several huge reference texts. I know some people who have it around at teaching sessions and conferences and continually add there own key notes or "pearls" to the text.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent overview of conventional treatments
If you are newly diagnosed with IC, you need this book. It gives an overview of all the conventional treatments, and tells you what to expect from the tests you'll be having.

If you are the type of person who doesn't automatically trust conventional medicine, weigh carefully the pros and cons of the tests - eg even in this very conventional book, the author admits that a cystoscopy and bladder distention under anesthesia(the first test you'll inevitably have) doesn't really help establish whether you have IC or not. And it can cause a lot of people pain (and some people, a benefit).

The author discusses what he calls "pelvic floor dysfunction", and if you think this might apply to you, you should read the book "A Headache in the Pelvis".

Good luck, people do get better!

2-0 out of 5 stars Not much new information
I read this book in one night. Unfortunately, there was nothing "new" in it to help me with my IC. It was basically just an overview of what IC is and some treatment options. I would not recommend buying it, you can find any of it's information on any IC website of pamplet.

3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting knowledge building
Personally I would prefer to avoid surgery but this book provides good information surrounding the condition as well as offering practical tips for prevention.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good book with an understanding doctor's guidance.
I usually do not get self-help books, but since finding out for the second time in twenty years that I have full blown IC and being told to read some books on this...well, if I have to do it, this is an excellent book for reference. It is hard to find physicians that are willing to treat their women patients and the female public at large as if we have half a brain. This doctor writes clearly and concisely, but he doesn't 'dummy' down the topic, nor does he patronize the women who are going to be the major group purchasing this book.

The last time I was diagnosed with IC was in 1983. Apparently things have changed significantly in this field since then. When I was first diagnosed I was only 24 or so, and it was hell trying to get anyone to recognize I had a 'real' problem which was not female related, nor was it 'all in my head'. My husband and I were frantic to find a solution, and at that time they did not understand what was causing this nor basic treatments for it, though they were experimenting with DMSO which eventually solved the problem for several years. The tendency for many doctors to dismiss my pain and agony of this condition as being 'mental' was the first step on my path to med school and neuroscience in spite of my deafness.

This book provides all the current information that a patient needs to know. I actually read the book in an evening, it was that clear. Since knowing what doctors usually write like in medical journal Moldwin deserves praise for writing such an understandable and intelligent book! I am beginning to realize that this condition is obviously something which plagues a lot of women (and to be fair, some men). I also am pleased to note that finally it is being taken seriously by physicians, and that most likely, this is something I will have to spend my life dealing with.

It certainly makes it easier to deal with it (and knowing I will have to have outpatient procedures) when I know the doctors take it seriously. I've already implemented some of this doctor's recommendations and find they are helping somewhat. I highly recommend this book to anyone going through this, and I also recommend contacting a support group (I cannot since I am deaf) which will help deal with the emotional and mental fallout from this condition.

3-0 out of 5 stars Encyclopedic reference
This book certainly looks impressive on your shelf, and it's a fairly thorough reference book. However, I have found it difficult to read (dry, boring) when I am not motivated by some particular thing that I am looking up. In fact, I have never made it through a single chapter from start to finish. This is probably a great book for epilepsy fellows. On the other hand, as a neurology resident who plans to stay a generalist, I found it to be overkill. ... Read more

Book Description

dvances in histotechnology continue to expand the capabilities of the histopathology laboratory, but also require continual study by practitioners to remain current. The second edition of Histotechnology; A Self-Instructional Text presents all the latest advances as well as the fundamentals that are critical to achieving the highest quality work.

Written as both reference and teaching tool Histotechnology; A Self-Instructional Text addresses the essentials of preparing histology specimens including staining and processing, laboratory safety issues, and immunohistochemistry in fourteen instructional units. Electron microscopy and enzyme histochemistry have been added to this edition to help histotechnologists preparing for the HTL(ASCP) certifying examination. Each unit presents the learning objectives of the section, explains and illustrates the technique, and then gives specific learning activities that will reinforce the information. Written as both a teaching tool and reference, the format also makes troubleshooting fast and easy.

Histotechnology is an excellent learning tool for histologic technic students, and for residents and pathologists seeking to expand their understanding of the technology used in the histopathology laboratory. It is equally well suited as a desk reference for the more common special staining techniques and their results.

5-0 out of 5 stars From veterinarian and pathologis
This is with no doubt one of the best book written in the field of histology and pathohistology. I used this book intensively while writing my research thesis. The book is very professional and it is written in a "user friendly" manner.

Excellent reference book for every pathology, histology student and laboratory.

5-0 out of 5 stars Freida Carson Histology review
I think this is one of the best instructional histology books I have seen. It gives a solid background of the information needed to certify with the board of registry and allows a individual to learn on there own while working in the histo laboratory. This book has helped me to grasp all basis in the subject while keeping it interesting and not dull. I strongly suggest this book along with the instructional workbook for anyone who is starting out in the field of histology. It will be worth your money. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars a superb text!
This book is a strong resource for any clinician dealing with language disorders. It clearly outlines intervention, assessment, different disorders etc. It covers a lot of material, but manages not to feel dense. It also provides tons of ideas for therapy... lists of children's books categorized by what therapy goal addresses (e.g. pronouns)... sample activities etc. Paul does a nice job of summarizing the current research and its implications for the clinician. I honestly don't know how I would have survived my first preschool placement without this book. Whenever I was stumped, this is where I turned. This is the type of book that you never get around to putting back on the shelf for you are always using it. Plus, as an added bonus it reads very well, more like a story than a text.

5-0 out of 5 stars You must read this for clinical practice
This is a must read book, especially for student who have clinical practice. This book covers most of the important aspects in language intervention. Many useful examples are list, so that you can easily apply the knowledge into your real cases!

5-0 out of 5 stars User-friendly guide for beginning clinicians
After repeatedly checking this book out from the library, I bought my own copy. I found the organization of assessment and treatment by age group to be helpful, and the wealth of non-standardized testing methods both appropriate and easy to implement. As the author says, it is designed for the beginning clinician and provides a worthwhile resource for anyone working with children. Though it does provide theoretical discussion, it is primarily a "hands-on" book. I would recommend this book as a primary text, a supplemental text, or a resource for SLPs who are updating their knowledge and practice in child language. ... Read more

Book Description

Sponsored by the Picker/Commonwealth Program for Patient-Centered Care

In this comprehensive, research-based look at the experiences and needs of patients, the authors explore models of care that can make hospitalization more humane. Through the Patient's Eyes provides insights into why some hospitals are more patient-centered than others; how physicians can become more involved in patient-centered quality efforts; and how patient-centered quality can be integrated into health care policy, standards, and regulations. The authors show how, by bringing the patient's perspective to the design and delivery of health services, providers can improve their ability to meet patient's needs and enhance the quality of care.
