Humanity

During the centuries covered by the four chapters you have read so far (2, 3, 4 and 5), some of the most well-known and influential figures of western philosophy rose to prominence: Plato, Aristotle, Lucretius, Marcus Aurelius and Augustine, to name but a few. Philosophy in the early days was something discussed in person, and on rare occasions formed later into poetry or dialogues (Socrates, in particular, never wrote at all), but increased literacy meant that the works of these thinkers were more widely disseminated and many were immensely influential in forming the political structure of new democratic governments (Plato was famous for having attempted to put his philosophical theory into practice in Sicily, an attempt which failed disastrously).

Throughout the rest of the textbook we will be encountering many other philosophical and religious writers, but in these three crucial periods many of the leading principles were laid down on which many of our own societies have been founded.

What we are going to do this week is to analyze some of the products of this philosophical thought, and to consider what it says about the societies of the time.

Review the following sections in your textbook:

  • Early Greek Philosophy (pp.43-44) [51-2];
  • Classical Greek Philosophy (pp.59-62) [66-69];
  • Roman Philosophy (pp.89-93) [97-100];
  • Classical and Christian Philosophy (pp.107-109) [114-117].

 

Now consider the following questions.

1.     What relationship do you perceive in the principal ideas formulated during these major periods of philosophical thinking?

2.     Did society develop or progress (either in a good or a bad way) as a result of pursuing any of these ideas?

3.     Can you see any similarities to other philosophies, such as those of Confucius (p.61) [68]or Buddha (pp.90-91) [98]?

4.     Did the spread of literacy have any influence, in your view, on the success of any particular philosophical theory?

 

You should aim to include:

  • What similarities you can perceive;
  • What developments or differences you can identify;
  • What effect the works of these philosophers had on their own society and on other contemporary societies.
  • Examples to illustrate your arguments, referenced according to the Citation guidelines.

  1. You are returning to your office from lunch, and you pass by the nurses’ station in the emergency department. You turn to say something to a couple of the nurses there and notice a group of about 15 people gathered around one of the resident physicians and his laptop. When you get a little closer, you notice that there are some graphic photographs of an attempted suicide patient that had come into the ER a couple of weeks before. You know something about the case because you had to bring some forms for the patient’s family to sign, and you remember that the patient was unconscious when they brought her in and could not have authorized photographs to be taken of her. Is this an example of a breach of patient confidentiality? Why, or Why not? How would you handle this situation? What, if any, laws have been broken in this incidence? Your best answer will include any valid defense that could be raised by the hospital.

 

 

 

  1. A therapist working in an outpatient surgery center receives a phone call from a woman demanding to know when her (adult) son’s appointment is. The therapist obviously cannot disclose this information, and the mother becomes very angry and abusive with the therapist and threatens to make a complaint. After the phone call, the therapist, who has access to all practice patients’ electronic surgery records, goes to make a note about the conversation on the system. However, the therapist accesses the woman’s notes accidentally and not her son’s. The therapist realizes the mistake, but not before spotting that the woman has a diagnosis of a serious mental health disorder, which might explain the woman’s behavior. The therapist mentions to his supervisor the possibility of a complaint being brought by the woman, and also mentions that the woman has a history of mental health problems. Do you feel that there has been a breach of confidentiality? Why, or why not? How do you feel the supervisor should handle this situation?
  2. Outline the pros and cons of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. State your opinion about the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and give facts to support this opinion

  4. Conduct an Internet search of whistleblowing cases in the healthcare field. Choose one of these cases and summarize the particulars of the case. Do you feel that the person who blew the whistle was justified in doing so? Why, or why not? Also, do you agree with the outcome of the case? Why, or why not?

 

Unit V Research Paper APA

Freedom of speech and freedom of the press are two important rights individuals have in the United States. Today, there are so many news outlets featured on the radio, television, cable, and the Internet that are competing for our attention to the degree that some news media emphasize very sensitive and controversial subjects as a means to simply attract an audience. Some individuals criticize this practice as being harmful to society. Yet, others claim it is appropriate to report

this type of speech in such a fashion.

Research the topic, Freedom of the Press, and write a research paper that explains your views on freedom of the press and whether this trend toward reporting sensitive topics does or does not have a negative impact on some work environments.

Make sure that your paper has the following components:

Introduction – State your thesis and the purpose of your research paper clearly. What is the chief reason you are writing the paper? State also how you plan to approach your topic. Is this a factual report, a book review, a comparison, or an analysis of a problem? Explain briefly the major points you plan to cover in your paper and why readers should be

interested in your topic.

Body – Present your arguments to support your thesis statement. This should be one to three paragraphs in length.

Conclusion – Restate or reword your thesis. Summarize your arguments. Explain why you have come to this particular conclusion.

Your paper should be three to five pages in total length, using 12-point double-spaced Times Roman font using APA

Profiling and discrimination are alive and well both in  our private lives and in the public sector.  People are very judgmental and make decisions on what they think about you as a person, how you conduct yourselves, how you present yourselves, your grammar, your writing and whether or not we should even hire you in the CJ field.  Let’s face it folks; with thousands of people graduating with masters degrees in CJ and other degree areas…why do you think you should even be considered for a job?   Some will say experience…yeah so what?  People with masters degrees have experience too and they have something you don’t.  Profiling is done in the CJ system, many who work in law enforcement will not admit  it and I don’t expect you to either on this board.  Do you see these two concepts as problems in your life or future life?  What can you do about it if anything?  Your thoughts this week.
