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]

ber Tyrannei

Author: Timothy Snyder
Publisher: C.H.Beck
ISBN: 9783406711473
Release Date: 2017-03-30
Genre: Political Science

Wir sind nicht klüger als die Menschen, die erlebt haben, wie überall in Europa die Demokratie unterging und Faschismus, Nationalsozialismus und Kommunismus kamen. Aber einen Vorteil haben wir. Wir können aus ihren Erfahrungen lernen. „Leiste keinen vorauseilenden Gehorsam.“ So lautet die erste von 20 Lektionen für den Widerstand, mit denen Timothy Snyder die Bürger der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika vorbereitet auf das, was gestern noch unvorstellbar zu sein schien: einen Präsidenten, der das Gesicht der Demokratie verstümmelt und eine rechtsradikale Tyrannei errichtet. Doch nicht nur in den USA sind Populismus und autoritäres Führertum auf dem Vormarsch. Auch in Europa rückt die Gefahr von rechts immer näher – als ob es das 20. Jahrhundert und seine blutigen Lehren niemals gegeben hätte. Snyders historische Lektionen, die international Aufsehen erregt haben, sind ein Leitfaden für alle, die jetzt handeln wollen - und nicht erst, wenn es zu spät ist. Lektion 8: „Setze ein Zeichen.“ Dieses Buch tut es. Tun Sie es auch.

Ein journalistischer Auftrag, bei dem Raoul Duke von seinem Anwalt Dr. Gonzo begleitet wird, führt zu einem unglaublichen Trip, der eine ganze Generation geprägt hat. Mit Johnny Depp und Benicio Del Toro von Terry Gilliam kongenial verfilmt, bleibt Hunter S. Thompsons schonungslose Beschreibung des Drogenkonsums und der radikalen Freiheitssuche der 60er bis heute unerreicht.
