Miner explains that these medicine men "have an imposing temple or latispso" in every community. The latispso is another word for hospital. Miner continues to explain the various reasons the people go to latispso ceremonies when they are very ill. He makes the ritual seem like it is either a traumatic or positive experience, depending on what needs to be done at the latispso. I would not want to receive medical treatment at the latispso in the Nacirema culture because, according to children, "that is where you go to die" (Miner).

Connelly preformed a manipulation technique, “compressions”” on the Plaintiff during his third session which caused a great deal of discomfort. Connelly “laid his chest across my arms and used his body to put force on my arms and push” (App. at 124.)

The rhetorical situation Sacks addresses in this book to respond to was his disagreement of how case histories were conducted at the time of publican. His exigence was a response (Bitzer 48) to the mainstream consensus of the impersonal approach that he felt was causing an unrealistic disconnect between the disease and the individual suffering from such illness. The lack of empathy expressed in the
Abraham Flexner visited every medical school in the country. Abraham Flexner wrote Medical Education in the United States and Canada. most medical schools were anxious to discuss their problems and shortcomings while extending their full cooperation to Flexner in assessing their situations. Flexner became the unchallenged arbiter of educational reform in America and helped create a system that even today is associated with his name after publication of a report as to what an ideal medical school should look like as Johns Hopkins University was a model institution. The Flexner Report came out as a devastating indictment of the lack of quality medical education in the United States.
As is known to all, spinocerebellar ataxia is hard to cure and patients who suffer from this kind of disease will go through enormous pressure. In other words, this disease will affect the patients’ mental and physical health deadly. However the existing medical technology does not work on it well.

According to Aisha Dow(first art.) “Official statistics kept by the Oregon Health Authority show that about ninety percent of euthanasia patients were concerned about losing autonomy and not being able to engage in enjoyable activities.
The symbol of Pinel’s humanism served as a critical tool for further questioning: how else could one relieve and improve the environment, conditions and permanent needs of patients in a grave reality of asylums’ everyday life? In his famous article "On the problem of no-restraint regime", published after the Ist Congress of the Russian psychiatrists, Sergei Sergeevich Korsakov wrote: "Since the liberation of lunatics has begun, the more knowledge the doctors acquire in the care of the mentally ill and the further science explains the properties and nature of the mental illness, the more the principle of liberation is carried out. The first powerful impetus to it was given in 1792 by Pinel" (Korsakov, 1887, p. 397). As the French psychiatrist, Korsakov offered to consider humane treatment as a subsequent reversal towards the liberation of patients, which consisted of the following components: 1) Welcoming, calm handling of the mentally ill in order to be closer to him/her needs and, first of all, to see him/her as a human and not as a
