The anxiety over death persists in everyday life- though often denied or repressed- lingering as an unconscious worry or intuition that typically seems to compromise one’s feelings of well-being and experience in a range of areas; coming out often as malaise, depression, and anger in much conduct.
The book begins with a focus on the ethical foundations of caregiving in health and expands towards problems of ethics and justice implicated in a range of issues. The content develops the notion of care itself and its connection to practice.
The Reflexive Initiative is an authoritative intervention in the practice and tradition of reflexive social theory. It demonstrates the importance of the reflexive imperative, not only in the investigation of everyday life but across a wide range of human sciences and philosophical perspectives.
The aim of this meeting is to focus upon how cities create cultural landscapes in which heritage is both tangibly marked by the built environment, by official scripts and policies and also by their seemingly intangible influences of collective memories and collisions in values about the meaning of place that fluctuate over time.
