Government has enacted laws and certain steps have also been taken. But, these are not sufficient as the majority of the elderly people are still suffering a lot. So, laws should be applied properly and more concrete steps should be taken by the government to protect these vulnerable sections of the society. However, this paper will discuss the existing legal
To both him and I, death means nothing to the one who is dead. Epicurus begins his argument by stating, “For all good and bad consists in sense-experience, and death is the privation of sense experience. Hence, a correct knowledge of the fact that death is nothing to us makes the morality of life a matter of contentment, not by adding a limitless time [to life] but by removing the longing of immortality” (Letter to Menoeceus 124). This suggest death is the suspension of sensation. For something to be good and evil, it needs to be able to be sensed.
Bio-medical model makes its many different assumptions about health and illness. For example, it explains that “health is biological whereas illness is caused by something that is identifiable” (Waugh et al, 2008). This model further explains that illness is not permanent. After analyzing all the sides, we can see that how difficult it is to pinpoint the exact definitions of health and illness as we are constantly changing what we consider to be illnesses around the world. (b) What is health psychology?
Recognizing that age discrimination exists both advertently and inadvertently in personal and institutional form, and that economic and psychological factors play a major part in ageism as well, the International Longevity Center (ILC) has set out to examine the problem of age prejudice, also known as ageism (Butler, 2009). The American Psychological Association suggests that ageism is a serious issue that should be treated the same as sex, race, and disability-based discrimination. They suggest that raising public awareness about the issues ageism creates can help. As the population of older adults
Moderation and extremism are based on the environmental, educational, religious, historical and political changes the society passes by. On the other hand the level of moderation and extremism change in between each era of time, what is consider extremist years ago can be consider moderate now a days and vice versa. Many researchers tired to give any clear definition for the extremism including 1. Extremism is a complex phenomenon, although its complexity is often hard to see. Most simply, it can be defined as activities (beliefs, attitudes, feelings, actions, strategies) of a
Living body and the mind of humans can't get through the concept of death because no human can explain it through their concepts unless they already experienced death itself and came back to life and explain everything if there would be immortality of the soul, the theory of reincarnation to other bodies, where does the spirit of humans go, if death would be the true end of humans, if death is real or not, or if there would be life after death. What would be the next after death? All humans know just the limit that all of us are curious which is about the nature of life that entailed by the ending of life which is the death. There could be no one that can explain life after death, not even those who study the death process. All human knowledge
The biological approach believes us to be as a consequence of our genetics and physiology. Physiology is how the nervous system and hormones work and how the brain functions. It examines how changes in structure and function can affect behaviour. The Biological; approach examines thoughts, feelings, and behaviours from a biological and physical point of view. An influence within the biological approach is genetics, characteristics that are not suited to a species’ environment will die out as it struggles to survive, and with time will evolve over generations so that only adaptive characteristics remain in future offspring.
Ageing is multidimensional change involving the physical, social as well as psychological aspects for an individual. Old age is generally an irreversible process, chronological, and a universal phenomenon and a challenge to everyone, who reaches it irrespective of sex, economic background, social background, race, ethnicity, profession, occupation, religion, skill or learning. Age can be also described as a progressive decline of the physical and mental function resulting in a simultaneous decline in both the capacity of body to maintain physiological balance as well as adaptability of the individuals to various stresses there by consequently increasing the chances of illness and mortality ( Marpady &et al, 2012) Neetu (2013) put aging by citing Becker (1959) as a complex process which includes anatomical, physiological, psychological and even social and economic changes. Randhawa (1987) stated aging by citing Becker (1959) in that ageing consists of two simultaneous components anabolic building up and catabolic breaking down. In the middle years there is an essential balance between expansion and decay, while growth predominates in youth; degenerative changes which start occurring very clearly in life pre-dominate in the late life span.
Fifth suggestion is that because within each culture there exists variation in models of shame and guilt and future research is needed to test this hypothesis. Final suggestion that the authors put forwards is that more researches and studies are needed to provide theories of shame and guilt that incorporates cultural factors and provides understanding on the evolutionary and sociocultural influences on
There are obvious physical differences between populations living in different geographic areas of the world. Some of these differences are strongly inherited and others, such as body size and shape, are strongly influenced by nutrition, way of life, and other aspects of the environment. Genetic differences between populations commonly consist of differences in the frequencies of all inherited traits, including those that are environmentally malleable. 5. For centuries, scholars have sought to comprehend patterns in nature by classifying living things.
