Loading...
Paul Root Wolpe, Ph.D. (Senior Fellow, Center for Bioethics and Associate Professor, Departments of Psychiatry, Medical Ethics, and Sociology, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) discussed the ways in which humans think of and view "bodies." Dr. Wolpe illustrated with what he termed the "misshapen body" (such as the specimens on display at the Mütter Museum), the "reconstructed body" (such as cloned animals and the Body Worlds exhibitions of plastinated human bodies) and the "deconstructed body" (such as gender changing surgeries).

Lung Health: The Science Squad

A recent European report on lung health found that Ireland has the third highest death rate from lung disease in Europe. Each year, there are as many deaths in Ireland due to respiratory disease as there are from heart disease, yet it does not seem to be prioritized. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD is a collection of lung diseases, the most common being chronic bronchitis and emphysema. It is often seen as a smoker’s disease; something people are bringing on themselves, but that is not the full story. The fact is lung disease can affect anyone regardless of age, health status and walk of life. We meet the RCSI researchers who have discovered that the high prevalence of COPD in this country could be linked to a genetic lung condition affecting 1 in 24 Irish people, 90% o [...]

Mind-Body Problem, the

Philosopher John Searle explores "the mind-body problem." He begins by talking about the perspective of Descartes and others who viewed the mind and the body as totally separate and distinct areas. Professor Searle then goes on to look at how the mind and body actually function in real life, concluding that mental processes are caused by brain processes, which are very much biological processes. In other words, the mind and the body in real life are linked.

Rethinking Obesity: Nature vs. Nurture?

As a species we’ve been getting larger over the past 50 years and obesity is at epidemic proportions in some Western societies. So why are we doing so much damage to ourselves, our health services and our planet? Is it mainly due to nurture, the environment? Or is it more to do with nature, our biology? In Rethinking Obesity, featuring contributions from two of the leading figures in this debate, Dr. Clare Llewellyn of University College London and Dr. Giles Yeo of Cambridge University, we examine the evidence for and against these views and suggest a third explanation - the relationship between our genes and the environment in which we live.

Behaviorism, Identity Theory and Functionalism

Philosopher John Searle explores various perspectives on the mind which he believes are all flawed, including behaviorism and identity theory, then discusses functionalism, which he says is essentially a combination of the other two. According to functionalism, every mental state is a state of the brain, defined not in terms of its neurobiological features but in terms of its causal relations. Professor Searle states that functionalism is accepted by the majority of philosophers today.
