Thinking Nurse

This blog will reflect my interests in learning disabilities, nursing, nursing theory, philosophy and politics and my general interests in the arts and literature. (Nursing is an art as well as a science!) Philosophy and nursing have been intrinsically linked since the days of Socrates, his mother was a midwife, and taught him everything he knew!

Would You Agree To Have Your Post Mortem Screened On Live TV?



Here's a picture of Jeremy Bentham's body - he was the philosopher most associated with the ethical principle of 'utilitarianism'.
In line with his philosophy, he wanted his body to be of some use after his death, so he had it stuffed, mounted in a wooden case and put on display at University College London.

As an atheist, I would have no objection to my body being dissected, particularly for the benefit of science, even though I have heard the rumours about what happens to body parts when medical students get hold of them!

I cannot see what harm it does to have a Post Mortem displayed live on TV for educational purposes, where there is full consent from surviving relatives. In my view, the more people understand about how their bodies work, the more likely they are to look after them.

I'd be interested in what other people feel about this issue.

Slice away! Actually have considered donating my dead self to the "Body Worlds" exhibit (www.bodyworlds.com) under the stipulation that they do something VERY cool with my entire body...

I agree. There is nothing like getting your first glimpse of blackened lungs, an enlarged heart and sclerosed vessels to make one second guess a cigarette-and-steak evening.

I suppose this situation helps support the death as the new pornography thinking.

Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm going
to start my own blog soon but I'm having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something
unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
