Scientific Essay from the year 2015 in the subject Law - Comparative Legal Systems, Comparative Law, , language: English, abstract: Aging societies and advances in medicine make it likely that biomedical issues will pose legal challenges. While biolaw can provide some regulation, important life and death decisions have to be taken by patients and physicians. Often, though, patients are no longer capable of making such decisions. In 2009, Germany formalized the private law rules on advance directives. While advance directives, also referred to as living wills, are still widely associated with wishes for euthanasia, they function today goes far beyond that. In terms of criminal law, Germany still outlaws active euthanasia. In so far it differs from the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland. Given that there has been a noticeable shift of emphasis from human dignity and the right to life to personal autonomy as a function of human dignity and in light of the legalization of euthanasia in several neighboring countries and resulting euthanasia tourism from Germany to Switzerland, there is a risk that the legal situation or at least the general attitude and the perception of the law will also change in Germany. This can lead to a risk of unwanted active or passive euthanasia, a problem which is highlighted by a case which is currently pending before the European Court of Human Rights against France. Taking into account human rights and human dignity as well as the contin...

We all have to face death. Although it’s inevitable—or perhaps because it’s inevitable— death can be our biggest fear. And when we fear death, we can’t be there for others in their times of transition.Author Judith A. Sommerville like most of us, she feared death. But ironically, she found funeral industry. Eventually became a palliative caregiver and natural therapist. Dying,Grief, and the Other Side: Assistance with Making Peace and Transitioning with Dignity is the result of her providing twenty-five years of professional and passionate end-of-life care.Judith has a unique, panoramic view of the needs of the dying, the relief that natural and complementary therapies can provide, the scientific theories and personal explanations of near-death experiences, and the grieving processes families undergo after the death of a loved one.Dying, Grief, and the Other Side: Assistance with Making Peace and Transitioning with Dignity will help you release the fear that surrounds death. For once it is eased, that space can be filled with love, acceptance, and peace. When the stages of dying and grief are understood and discussed openly and with compassion, this vulnerable, uncertain time will become a respectful celebration of life rather than an anxious denial of demise.

G.E.M. Anscombe and Human Dignity

1514 руб.
G.E.M. ANSCOMBE (1919-2001) is one of the twentieth century's most provocative and highly regarded philosophers. Anscombe is known for challenging received philosophical views, and some commentators have regarded her as the greatest woman philosopher of all time. The papers in this volume explore the work of Anscombe as it relates to the subject of human dignity. The volume has three parts: Part I introduces the theme and gives an overview of the papers; Part II examines the nature of human dignity, with special focus on Anscombe's perspective; and Part III explores the implications of human dignity for doing applied ethics, specifically regarding the issues of euthanasia, physician-assisted suicide, abortion, and physical disability. In her work, Anscombe will sometimes employ the concept of human dignity. She discusses several issues in applied ethics in connection with the notion of human dignity. Dignity is a complex concept, multi-layered, and variously defined. The essays in this volume reflect the difficulty, complexity, yet importance of the concept of human dignity. The essays also attest to the significance of the concept of dignity for many different kinds of ethical issues. By describing and in some cases defending both Anscombe's incisive perspective and her moral commitment, these essays convey Anscombe's important contributions to our understanding of the value of a human life.

You Live! You Die! Who Decides? A Textbook of Life and Death. Since not even science knows much about death and it is rolling in our direction at a high rate of speed we all need to learn as much as we can about it. No earthly person has ever returned from the trip, but we can prepare for it in several ways. The first obstacle to overcome in our minds about death is the universal tendency to deny it will happen, to ignore it, and to not prepare for it. If one has no faith, no religion, or no belief in God and this is one's firm, fixed, and final decision then eat, drink, and be merry and let it happen. I can think of no reasonable solutions for that position. For the Christian the issue is settled and no further comment is needed. In my previous book on Biblical Beliefs there is an extensive discussion on the after-life and one is referred to that. Because of the almost universal ignorance related to the death of Terri Schiavo extensive studies are included. This involves the Grey Areas of Life, Life and Death Ethics, the Code of Medical Ethics, Bioethics, Anatomical and Physiological Studies of the Brain, Physiological Basis of Consciousness, Euthanasia and the desire for Death, 30 year Experience with Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide in The Netherlands, Death and the Bible, Death and the Desire for Death in the Bible, and Humanism. Where one can and needs to be educated concerns the events leading up to death for you and your family. This requires knowledge of the 12 Lev...

Anthony Trollope The Fixed Period

608 руб.
THE FIXED PERIOD (1882) by Anthony Trollope is an unusual early science fiction novel, originally published anonymously. It is part utopia, part dystopia, part dark satire, with overtones of modern "steampunk" and quaint technological devices.In this amazing visionary work by the British Victorian master of social mores and relationships, Britannula is an imaginary "futuristic" island country and a one-time British colony near New Zealand, and the story is narrated by the President. In Britannula, a law has been passed decreeing that all citizens who have reached the age of 67 must be removed to "The College" to undergo euthanasia, for the good of society.What happens when the first and oldest man reaches the end of his "Fixed Period" and must prepare for his "humane" death is a fascinating study of moral and social impossibility.

This book considers human rights as protective against arbitrary of the state to do with a country in its darkest days, where human rights are constrained by state's anarchy. It analyses rule of law as bedrock for building a structure of ordered liberty and progress in civil society, provides foundation for economic development, protection of human rights and promote basic dignity. The analysis examines democracy, federalism, institutional reforms and accountability as effective mechanisms for exit from failed rule of law. This would guide the need to embark on critical issues like effective management, capacity building, maintaining law and order, provision of public goods, fair and impartial political platform.

Shariah Law: Questions and Answers

Shariah law is a subject that is misunderstood and misrepresented by many in the West. More than simply a system of law, it is concerned with a set of values and rules that are essential to the understanding and practice of Islam. In this volume, Mohammad Hashim Kamali, a world-renowned expert on Shariah, adopts a question-and-answer format to provide a clear introduction to its most salient aspects. Extending from the sources of Shariah in the Qur'an, hadith and the legal maxims of Islamic law to the discussion of issues such as freedom of religion, gender equality and human rights, Shariah Law: Questions and Answers connects the theoretical aspects of the law with how it is applied in the world today. At once scholarly and accessible, it is sure to be a vital resource for students, teachers and general readers, addressing as it does a range of contemporary concerns, including jihad, democracy, the environment, genetic engineering, human cloning, euthanasia and abortion.

Ph.D. Walter W. Tunstall On the Origin of Dignity. Its Creation and Enhancement

1014 руб.
In On the Origin of Dignity Dr. Tunstall presents a revolutionary, provocative and original theory that spells out how our dignity comes into being. This monumental work recounts dignity’s long existence as a concept, and its growth as a major theme within current international discourse, as it moves beyond dignity’s existence as a mere belief to explain how dignity becomes a living experienced dimension within each human being.On the Origin of Dignity sheds new light on its topic by going beyond the conventional and mythic accounts of dignity’s origin to offer a detailed explanation of how, when, and where self-worth or dignity comes into being. The book describes dignity’s emergence within a universal psychological process as integral and elemental to human experience as breathing. It is not dependent upon social norms, tradition or religious and philosophical traditions to account for dignity’s origin. Instead, it offers a detailed explanation of dignity’s creation within day-to-day, moment-to-moment interpersonal experience.On the Origin of Dignity asserts that human interaction is the co-creative nexus from which dignity emerges. It clarifies and provides a coherent and understandable account of why and how the underlying psychological process of validation unifies many of the customary and disputed meanings associated with the idea of dignity in centuries past. This original work appears at a time when a Zeitgeist exists that seems to have forgotten the importance of di...

Free Rein to Kill chronicles the heart-wrenching true story of an elderly patient who was admitted to the hospital with an impacted bowel and involuntarily euthanized after being incorrectly diagnosed with end-stage cancer.Coauthors Maddie Kisha and Paula Andrasko allege that the Florida doctors caring for their father, Paul Joseph Vertucci, Sr., neglected his impacted bowel and inaccurately diagnosed end-stage cancer, claiming that the disease had metastasized and was therefore incurable. Released with in-home hospice care, his daughters' determination and love were not enough to save him--Vertucci eventually died from morphine-related complications.Kisha and Andrasko contend that their father was involuntarily euthanized due to the ramifications of the Florida Wrongful Death Act--alleging that the state legislation gives doctors, hospitals and insurance companies free reign to kill. The authors bring the controversial subject of euthanasia to the forefront as they recount the rich and loving relationship they shared with their beloved father.

Essay aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Kulturwissenschaften - Karibik, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: With the rise in the number of murders in the country, there have been subsequent calls not only by the present government but also by members of the public to reinstate the death penalty as a means of combating the escalating crime situation and thus punishing offenders for their actions. This paper seeks to firstly highlight the current state of the law regarding the death penalty. In addition, the strategic barriers that continue to exist which subsequently prevent the state from carrying out the death sentence will also be examined. Such barriers, though they may prove to be a challenge for any state that intends on retaining the death penalty, can however be removed and reformations can be made possible in order to make the death sentence effective.

The essays in Family, Gender, and Law in Early Modern France explore how ordinary men and women negotiated power within early modern French households and continually reinvented their families in response to external forces. Larger processes, such as state building, religious reform, changing understandings of gender roles, and economic developments, influenced family practices in the areas of marriage, separation, guardianship, and illegitimacy. Relatives, gender, community, and the law imposed limits upon families but also provided opportunities for agency. Contributors investigate patterns of courtship and decisions about marriage; the financial power exercised by wives; marital conflict and related controversies about gender, sexuality, and social order; death and guardianship; and the legitimization of children born out of wedlock. While addressing a variety of topics, this volume focuses on family members as individuals with complicated agendas and strategies of their own.

Law is supposed to encourage innovation, morality, and conformity with societal expectations, yet it may provides perverse incentives causing individuals, or even the State, to act in discordant, inefficient, and even immoral ways. This book will explore the inefficiencies that are created that serve to deny individuals work and shelter in a haphazard and capricious manner. The author examines property rights, including eminent domain, that lets the State take property away with seemingly arbitrary compensation to the owner. Individuals must understand both civil law, codified by statutes, and common law, enshrined in precedential judicial decisions. This book is written for economists and non-economists and has an extensive glossary of economic, political and legal terms. Two items that are not formally treated in other economics of law textbooks are the legal organization of businesses and tax law from an economics perspective.

Ash in the Belly is a penetrating account of men, women and children living with hunger, illuminated by their courage in trying to cope and survive. It is simultaneously an investigation into the political economy of hunger, whereby one in every two children is malnourished, despite the creation of wealth and economic growth. Mander critically examines the increasing economic inequalities, the range of state failures, and public indifference, in general and brings out how they have contributed to creating this grim situation. While doing so, he argues passionately for the passage of a universal right to food law, which guarantees food to all persons, not as state benevolence but as a legal entitlement. Compelling and insightful, this book reminds us that the right to food with dignity is indeed the right to life.

Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject Law - Comparative Legal Systems, Comparative Law, grade: 75% (=With Distinction), Cardiff University (Großbritannien; Law School), course: Comparative Contract Law, language: English, abstract: The question as to whether a third party can be granted rights or protection based on a contract between two other parties to which the third party is a mere stranger is as old as the legal scholarship of contract law itself. Over centuries, quite different approaches to the issue have been evolved and embedded in different legal systems, each with its own characteristics and features. This essay intents primarily to analyse and compare the approaches of English1 and German Law to third party rights arising from bilateral contracts, particularly with regard to contracts for the benefit of a third party and the new Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999. However, despite this main focus, some other features related to third party involvement in mutual contracts will be considered too. In the first and the second part of this essay I will describe the modus operandi of English and German law with regard to third party rights and highlight differences and similarities. The third part of this paper concerns the approach of that what is sometimes called an international restatement of contract law, namely the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts,2 to the rights of third parties.

Master's Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Public International Law and Human Rights, grade: A plus, Jawaharlal Nehru University , course: Master of Philosophy (M.Phil.), language: English, abstract: From the beginning of the twenty-first century the international community started addressing the issue of fragmentation of international law. In 2000, the International Law Commission (ILC) decided to include the topic "[r]isks ensuing from the fragmentation of international law" into its long-term programme of work. This initiative raises some basic questions: is international law a fragmented system? If it is so, what is the problem with the fragmentation? and how can the problem be resolved? This dissertation mainly revolves around these three major issues. It assumes that today's fragmented international law is part of historical evolution or process.In contemporary times, the term 'fragmentation' is commonly used to refer to the slicing up of international law 'into regional or functional regimes that cater for special audiences with special interests and ethos'. The most notable functional regimes are international trade law, environmental law, human rights law, humanitarian law, law of the sea and so on - when there is a collision between these regimes - than the conflict of norms becomes an unavoidable consequence - because each regime seeks favorable treatment towards its own.

William Paul Wanker The Promise of a New America Abridged

1239 руб.
The Promise of a New America identifies the philosophical, historical, political, economic, social, and cultural causes underpinning the increasing dysfunction of the American Republic and the subsequent disenfranchisement of its peoples. The book uses these findings to identify a solution to remedy our ills: it is to build a new form of governance around the concept of human dignity and living a dignified human existence. The book proposes the form be an eco-cultural community, a community defined both by its naturally occurring bio-system and by the economic and cultural identity of the people involved therein. And the book challenges all Americans to overthrow our republican form of government, by engaging in a Campaign for Human Dignity, supported technically as that campaign would be through the Human Dignity Project, which would ensure increasing enfranchisement and not segregation.

Jonathan Vita General theory of anti-avoidance rules

9339 руб.
First place, in this work the way of scientific investigation is cleared, based always in a plural scientific approach with a strong link to systematic and integrative methods towards various species of science. The first chapter deals with the clarification of the general premises of the work, based on law as a linguistic phenomenon, studied by Language Theories, Law Logics (aggregated on logic-semantic constructivism) and Niklas Luhmann's System's Theory. In the second chapter, avoidance and anti-avoidance rules are shown as general structures of law, in the lights of legal unity and System's Theory. The third chapter deals with the fractal and asymmetric classification of the anti-avoidance rules, adding an example of these rules outside the tax realm. The fourth chapter deals with the specificities of this new approach of the anti-avoidance tax rules and its developments and effects, analyzing also the differences to tax planning and tax evasion. The fifth and last chapter deals with anti-avoidance (especially its criteria) in different legal systems, such as in Brazil, Italy, USA and in international tax law, including the treaties to avoid double taxation and EC law.
