He always loved boxing and he introduced me to the old timers and learning how things were done back in the day when champions fought three times in two months. Now they fight twice a year. And one thing led to another; basically I was given by my parents a punching bag when I was 8 years of age.
Fiecare secventa de poveste e insotita, printr o pagina complementara, de exercitii dintre cele mai variate, care vizeaza aspecte diverse ale dezvoltarii personale, respectiv tot atatea laturi ale omului. Exista astfel exercitii si activitati/jocuri care se adreseza mintii, altele care se adreseaza laturii emotionale a copilului, altele care tintesc spre formarea de valori si atitudini, iar altele momentele de liniste care imbina gesturile si miscarea cu exercitiile de relaxare. Aceasta combinatie, departe de a fi arbitrara, are un scop declarat, de altfel, in cuvantul final catre parinti si educatori: acela cross curricular (transdisciplinar).
Along with her I have argued for the need to restore humanity in healthcare. I use a simple ‘fast ethics’ four principles analysis to support the ethical desirability of humanity in healthcare ‘fast ethics’ because the problem is not about coming to that obvious conclusion but how to get the conclusion implemented in practice, about which I offered some suggestions.15 That problem, of translating ethical theory into ethical practice is, of course, as Kong argues in her contribution, a major one but unlike her I think principlism properly used would actually help to ameliorate the problem! In a nutshell, if medical students and doctors were actually taught and encouraged to commit themselves to the simply expressed minimal objective of trying to live their professional lives in ways that are consistent with those four prima facie principles and with the medical moral mission statement above which is underpinned by those principles, I am pretty sure that this would indeed help them to be good and compassionate doctors and would thus benefit the patients and communities whom they serve.Too much weight for autonomy?Several contributors echo widespread claims that respect for autonomy is given too much weight either at the expense of beneficence, for example Kong,7 Boyd,16 Hurwitz17 and Callahan,12 or at the expense of justice, for example Dawson,8 Cookson,9 Prah Ruger10 and Callahan,12 or at the expense of non maleficence, for example Savulescu.18 These concerns point to the general problem of how to deal with conflict between these principles. First let me reiterate that to criticise the relative weights accorded to the different principles is not to reject their prima facie importance.However, as one who argues (unlike Beauchamp and Childress) that of those four prima facie principles respect for autonomy is ‘first among equals’, I must directly address the complaint that respect for autonomy is given excessive weight.
