Women s Rights and Bioethics

Author: Lorraine Dennerstein
Publisher: UNESCO
ISBN: 9789231037658
Release Date: 2000-01-01
Genre: Philosophy

Advances in the biomedical sciences have raised pertinent, and often paradoxical, questions concerning the relationship between women's health and their rights. This book, based on the Round Table on Bioethics and Women held at UNESCO during the Fourth Session of the International Bioethics Committee (IBC), presents the experience of field workers and actors in areas as diverse as health, legal affairs, governance, education and psychology. It takes into account both the various stages of the biological life span and the insertion of women in a particular socio-economic and cultural context. Although the book does not claim to be exhaustive, it shows to what extent the specificity of issues related to women in relation to bioethical issues has sometimes been underestimated. Based on numerous socio-cultural experiences throughout the world, it also provides a useful general view for readers who wish to pursue research or studies in this field. [UNESCO website]

Der Ruf der Stille

Publisher: Goldmann Verlag
ISBN: 9783641169244
Release Date: 2017-09-25
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Sehnsucht nach Stille - wie Christopher Knight 27 Jahre in der Wildnis lebte. Im Sommer 1986 begibt sich Christopher Knight auf einen Roadtrip von Massachusetts nach Maine und verschwindet in den Wäldern. 27 Jahre lang bleibt er dort, abgeschieden von der Welt, ohne menschlichen Kontakt, bis er wegen Diebstahls gefasst wird: Er hatte Essen geklaut. In einem einfachen Zelt überlebte Knight die härtesten Winter, weil er klug wie ein Eichhörnchen Vorräte gebunkert und alles darauf ausgerichtet hatte, nicht zu erfrieren. In den nahegelegenen Ferienhäusern versorgte er sich mit Lebensmitteln, Kleidung und Büchern und verstörte als unheimliches Phantom die Bewohner von North Pond. Der Journalist Michael Finkel hat das außergewöhnliche Leben des Chris Knight dokumentiert. Entstanden ist eine fesselnde Story, die den fundamentalen Fragen über ein gutes Leben nachgeht und das tief bewegende Porträt eines Mannes hinterlässt, der sich seinen Traum erfüllte: ein Leben in absoluter Stille.
