• 'n Kruiskulturele ondersoek na Christelike moraliteit onder universiteitstudente

      le Roux, A. (Faculty of Theology and Religion, University of the Free State, 2003-12-12)
      The world is currently experiencing a serious moral crisis. On the one hand, South Africa is considered one of the world’s most Christian societies, but on the other hand, it also has exceptionally high crime rates, in particular murder and rape, with HIV/AIDS growing at an alarming rate. As these factors are closely related to human morality, the researcher was interested in investigating the state of Christian morality on a South African campus. The moral values of students of two different culture groups at the University of the Free State were measured and compared. The results showed no significant difference between the moral values of black and white students. However, there was a very significant difference between male and female morality. The scores of the female students were significantly higher than those of the male students, implying that their Christian moral values are considerably stronger than those of their male counterparts.

    • Nanotechnology Through the Lenses of Science Fiction: Case Study of the Manga Ganmu (Battle Angel Alita) by Kishiro Yukito.

      Nanotechnology has emergerd as a rapidly growing field whose dynamics and prospects pose many challenges to society at large. One of them is to overcome the radical opposition between nanophilic and nanophobic perspectives, whose science fictional rhetoric blurs the boundaries between "real" science and SF. However, if we assume, as Colin Milburn has pointed out, that nanotechnology is a "science fiction", it should be worth considering the ways science-fiction explores its so-called social and ethical implications. Japan offers an interesting example inasmuch as manga and animation, as a modern medium for SF, has dealt a lot with the political, economical, social and ethical impacts of nanotechnology. I will thus focus on the manga Ganmu 銃夢(Gunnm) by Kishiro Yukito 木城 ゆきとto analyse how Japan apprehends a nanotechnologically modified future.

    • Narrative and study ethic of the elderly person hospitalized : the fall, the bed rest and the toilet.

      The initial question came to my mind when I saw a patient fall physically in a hospital ward. This sighting made me wonder about the nurses’ pursuant actions, who over-laden by strict prevention rules, coded medical acts and techniques, put this particular moment on hold. And yet, it seems that this very instant alone summarizes the essence of our existence. Asymmetry here is striking: the nurse standing and the patient lying on de floor. In that case i.e. the fall, care becomes meaningful. This could create a half-parabolic situation in the caregiver-patient relationship. I am going to broach the phenomenon of fall, examine the patient’s and the carer’s life experiences, administrative rules and how these rules impact a ward’s activities. The link between nursing care and physical fall is very concrete here, but it will also serve a springboard for an opening onto another fall. My unfolding is set as follows : Start out from a concrete situation, focus on some aspects e.g. the nurses’ hush after hearing the noise of the fall trying to find out what made that noise; the length of time past, the solitude while lying on the floor, the fear the patient may have, physical efforts on both sides, to get the patient back in bed; the feeling of embarrassment and the shame the fallen ones often have. Eventually, I punctuate this work by evoking both patients’ and nurses’ accounts and testimonies in the subject. The bibliography presented in this paper is about subjects such as hospital, prison (Foucault) when it comes to restraining the patient on the account of security. Furthermore, event (Hannah Arendt and Derrida) in order to examine the key term EVENT in more detail by the quality cells of hospital institutions: “Undesired/Unwanted fall” to refer to a patient’s fall. It is a revealing event insofar as the fall causes the person to lose his/her eminence due to an unveiled truth impeding him/her to stay hidden inside his/herself. Has this eminence been false then ? Or, conversely, could that fall reveal it ?
