Abstract

Bringing together essays by nineteen respected scholars, this volume approaches dementia from a variety of angles, exploring its historical, psychological, and philosophical implications. The authors employ a cross-cultural perspective that is based on ethnographic fieldwork and focuses on questions of age, mind, voice, self, loss, temporality, memory, and affect.Taken together, the essays make four important and interrelated contributions to our understanding of the mental status of the elderly. First, cross-cultural data show that the aging process, while biologically influenced, is also culturally constructed. Second, ethnographic reports raise questions about the diagnostic criteria used for defining the elderly as demented. Third, case studies show how a diagnosis affects a patient's treatment in both clinical and familial settings. Finally, the collection highlights the gap that separates current biological understandings of aging from its cultural meanings.

Abstract

The "Medici Project" – launched in 2004 – comprises a palaeopathological study of the corpses of the Medici buried in the Medici Chapels. The exhumations which took place in the past have altered the original state of the sepulchres, frequently compromising their conservation. Through the study of archive documents and iconographic material, this book is offered as a contribution to the contextualisation of these operations, and represents not only a starting-point for further investigations, but a fundamental working tool for the "Medici Project" itself.

Abstract

Die Studie bietet anhand von erzählten Lebensgeschichten einen systematischen Einblick in die Erlebnis- und Erfahrungswelt von Menschen mit »Essstörungen«. Sichtbar werden Entwicklungsbögen von der Entstehung über die Verfestigung bis zu den verschiedenen Bewältigungsversuchen sowie Ressourcen und Kompetenzen der Protagonistinnen. Diese Perspektive ermöglicht ein Neuverstehen des Phänomens »Essstörung«, das über die gängigen defizitären Konzeptionen hinausgeht und Konsequenzen für eine ressourcenorientierte Begleitung von Betroffenen aufzeigt. Das Buch richtet sich gleichermaßen an Professionelle, Betroffene und Angehörige.

Abstract

"This second volume La santé animale covers the main livestock diseases in detail: infectious and parasitic diseases, vector-borne diseases, and diseases linked to the environment and to rearing conditions. Each disease is described — symptoms, causes, mode of transmission and spread—, along with the relevant treatments and preventive measures.
Intended for veterinary technicians and agricultural counsellors, this technical work provides clear, essential information for anyone working with or in charge of treating animals in the tropics and subtropics. It can also be used for teaching purposes, in the higher education sector."
