Modern medicine has produced many wonderful technological breakthroughs that have extended the limits of the frail human body. However, much of the focus of this medical research has been on the physical, often reducing the human being to a biological machine to be examined, understood, and controlled. This book begins by asking whether the modern medical milieu has overly objectified the body, unwittingly or not, and whether current studies in bioethics are up to the task of restoring a fuller understanding of the human person. In response, various authors here suggest that a more theological/religious approach would be helpful, or perhaps even necessary. Presenting specific perspectives from Judaism, Christianity and Islam, the book is divided into three parts: "Understanding the Body," "Respecting the Body," and "The Body at the End of Life." A panel of expert contributors—including philosophers, physicians, and theologians and scholars of religion— answer key questions such as: What is the relationship between body and soul? What are our obligations toward human bodies? How should medicine respond to suffering and death? The resulting text is an interdisciplinary treatise on how medicine can best function in our societies. Offering a new way to approach the medical humanities, this book will be of keen interest to any scholars with an interest in contemporary religious perspectives on medicine and the body.

In Be Different, New York Times bestselling author of Look Me in the Eye shares a new batch of endearing stories about his childhood, adolescence, and young adult years, giving the reader a rare window into the Autistic mind. In his bestselling memoir, Look Me in the Eye, John Elder Robison described growing up with Autism Spectrum Disorder at a time when the diagnosis didn’t exist. He was intelligent but socially isolated; his talents won him jobs with toy makers and rock bands but did little to endear him to authority figures and classmates, who were put off by his inclination to blurt out non sequiturs and avoid eye contact. By the time he was diagnosed at age forty, John had already developed a myriad of coping strategies that helped him achieve a seemingly normal, even highly successful, life. In each story, he offers practical advice for anyone who feels “different” on how to improve the weak communication and social skills that keep so many people from taking full advantage of their often remarkable gifts. With his trademark honesty and unapologetic eccentricity, Robison addresses questions like: • How to read others and follow their behaviors when in uncertain social situations • Why manners matter • How to harness your powers of concentration to master difficult skills • How to deal with bullies • When to make an effort to fit in, and when to embrace eccentricity • How to identify special gifts and use them to your advantage Every person has something unique to offer the world, and every person has the capacity to create strong, loving bonds with their friends and family. Be Different will help readers and those they love find their path to success.

The modern world is preoccupied with correctness in its views of nature, government, economy and culture but at an unacceptable price. We find nature blind and indifferent and we now see culture as anything legally allowed. This insightful study examines the philosophy leading us here while showing how to change it. If we accept the integral role of mockery in truth we gain a more comprehensive view of ourselves and the world. In a perceptive study of four dialogues of Plato---the ones telling the story of Socrates' defense of philosophy----we find a pattern for our own growth. This book calls for renewed faith in an educated perception and in noble self-development. It speaks to discovering "heart and soul, not in an aesthetic diversion but in the nature of everything around us."

Spirituality changed my life. I obtained the peaceful mind I had lost as a child. I noticed how beautiful life really is and how complicated humans make it. Everybody seems to stress about situations they can't change, concern themselves with the ways other people live, and ridicule those who are different rather than accept them. The truth is that everybody is in need of acceptance. We were all born purely perfect until society's norms corrupted us and we felt that we needed to create a socially acceptable version of ourselves. It's clear that somebody can't act the way they did as a child throughout their whole lives without being disrespected. In reality people envy those who are happier than they are. Everybody labels everything and everyone else. There is not a certain way to do anything, and everybody is different. Morality is going down the drain, and people's perspectives are distorted by the media, the government, and the close-minded way of thinking we are led to follow as we grow up. After having silence in your mind it becomes apparent why people do the things they do. It is lucidity. There's so much more I want people to understand; I would love for everybody to be at peace with themselves. A collection of mind-opening revelations that will free the human soul and awaken the desire to spread peace and love.

Rita J. Simon and Rhonda M. Roorda's In Their Own Voices: Transracial Adoptees Tell Their Stories shared the experiences of twenty-four black and biracial children who had been adopted into white families in the late 1960s and 70s. The book has since become a standard resource for families and practitioners, and now, in this sequel, we hear from the parents of these remarkable families and learn what it was like for them to raise children across racial and cultural lines. These candid interviews shed light on the issues these parents encountered, what part race played during thirty plus years of parenting, what they learned about themselves, and whether they would recommend transracial adoption to others. Combining trenchant historical and political data with absorbing firsthand accounts, Simon and Roorda once more bring an academic and human dimension to the literature on transracial adoption.
