The visual language used is often similar; the power inherent in being seen is not changed.

Remember, too, Berger’s important connection of consumer culture to democracy and freedom. I...

I was born In1972 in a conservative society in a third world country. This society, which had its functions divided according to traditional ideologies and culture, had great influence on my perspective of life while growing up. My culturally oriented belief was that women were not meant to have professional ambitions in prestigious careers. Thus, they were supposed to be limited to those professions that were considered to be of little importance in the society. Nursing was one of those professions I considered reserved for women.

The width of the river separates the two contrasting banks. However, the bridge and the impressions on it indicate that there is a movement from the bright bank to the dark one.

The classical assumption in the discipline of bioethics is that the field is concerned with the dilemma of determining the most ethically appropriate action in the healthcare setting.

Since bioethics has taken a more social dimension, it is evolving into a contentious issue. In fact, bioethics emerged in the American society before spreading to the rest of the world, and eventually getting acceptance among religious groups. All societies and movements tha...

Politics of Truth;
In “Becoming Post Culturally Reflective about Truth” by MacNaughton, the phrase “politics of truth” emerges as a new terminology relating the formal education system and the development of a child. This term focuses on truth in the education of children. The truth in question is the persistent and repetitive discrimination of certain children by the education system. The system refuses to acknowledge that children are different and require different pedagogical approaches for proper and equitable development (MacNaughton, 2005).
