Faces Inside And Outside The Clinic

by Tony McHugh, Faces Inside And Outside The Clinic Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Faces Inside And Outside The Clinic books, Drawing on studies of surface topography, image editing, and diagnostic and surgical experience, Faces Inside and Outside the Clinic addresses the notion of ’truth’ in what are considered to be ’right’ and ’wrong’ faces, whether in clinical cosmetic procedures or in specific sociocultural contexts outside the clinic. With attention to the manner in which the human face - and often the individual herself or himself as a consequence - is physically defined, conceptually judged, numerically measured and clinically analysed, this book reveals that on closer inspection, supposedly objective and evidential ’truths’ are in fact subjective and prescriptive. Adopting a Foucauldian analysis of the ways in which ’normalising technologies’ and ’techniques’ ultimately preserve and expand upon an increasing array of ’abnormal’ facial configurations, Faces Inside and Outside the Clinic shows that when determining ’right’ and ’wrong’ faces, what happens inside the clinic is inextricably linked to what happens outside the clinic - and vice versa. As such, it will be of interest to scholars and students of social, cultural and political theory, contemporary philosophy and the social scientific study of science, health and technology.

Drug Danger And Social Behaviour

by Bhim Sain, Drug Danger And Social Behaviour Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Drug Danger And Social Behaviour books, Drug addiction, compulsive craving for drugs is an oldest phenomena because the societies, in all parts of the world, have been using phychoactive drugs drawn from more than 4000 plants, to cure various ailments, to enjoy pleasurable sensation and to alter mood when used otherwise. Hence these drugs have always been misused to create euphoria and never have posed a serious threat to the society. But developments, in the last quarter of the twentieth century have given new dimensions of an epidemic because through technological progress, an increasing number of alkaloids and their derivatives like heroin (smack), crack and many other deadly drugs have captured the minds of youths. Recent studies and investigations have showed some disturbing signs indicating deterioration in the drug-abuse scene in India and de-addiction clinics at various hospitals in the country speak volumes of the enormity of the problem. Addiction of heroin and other similar drugs to the traditional alcohol, tobacco and cannabis has made the situation quite grave and alarming. It is, therefore, in the fitness of things that indepth studies be made in the use of cannabis, alcohol, tobacco and other drugs to find out their acceptance or otherwise in the Indian society and their impact. The present book is an attempt in this direction, which primarily intends to communicate the gravity of the problem in India. Exhaustive exploratory work has been done by the author of this book to highlight the actual position of drug-abuse scene in India with illustrations. The work not only discusses the present problem but also traces the history of the addiction to various objects and peoples attitude towards them. An interesting part of the work is that where the author shows how smoking of tobacco and use of cannabis have become part of religious or social customs of various people of the world. The social aspect of drug abuse has been fully dealt with in the work. The author has also tried to draw the attention of the people and the Government to the illegal drug trafficking and its various channels. Finally, author suggests some effective measures for its eradication. The work will be of tremendous utility to the students of psychology, social work and occupational therapy apart from being an enlightening source for the general public.
