Islamic Biomedical Ethics: Principles and Application

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Islamic Biomedical Ethics: Principles and Application
Feb 202018
 

Biomedical ethics is a burgeoning academic field with complex and far-reaching consequences. Whereas in Western secular bioethics this subject falls within larger ethical theories and applications (utilitarianism, deontology, teleology, and the like), Islamic biomedical ethics has yet to find its natural academic home in Islamic studies.
In this pioneering work, Abdulaziz Sachedina – a scholar with life-long academic training in Islamic law – relates classic Muslim religious values to the new ethical challenges that arise from medical research and practice. He depends on Muslim legal theory, but then looks deeper than juridical practice to search for the underlying reasons that determine the rightness or wrongness of a particular action. Drawing on the work of diverse Muslim theologians, he outlines a form of moral reasoning that can derive and produce decisions that underscore the spirit of the Shari’a. These decisions, he argues, still leave room to revisit earlier decisions and formulate new ones, which in turn need not be understood as absolute or final. After laying out this methodology, he applies it to a series of ethical questions surrounding the human life-cycle from birth to death, including such issues as abortion, euthanasia, and organ donation.
The implications of Sachedina’s work are broad. His writing is unique in that it aims at conversing with Jewish and Christian ethics, moving beyond the Islamic fatwa literature to search for a common language of moral justification and legitimization among the followers of the Abrahamic traditions. He argues that Islamic theological ethics be organically connected with the legal tradition of Islam to enable it to sit in dialogue with secular and scripture-based bioethics in other faith communities. A breakthrough in Islamic bioethical studies, this volume is welcome and long-overdue reading for anyone interested in facing the difficult questions posed by modern medicine not only to the Muslim faithful but to the ethically-minded at large.

In Europe, the Islamic world, South and East Asia, and the Americas, individuals built on earlier achievements, introduced sometimes radical refinements and laid the foundations for modern development.

Medieval Science, Technology, and Medicine details the whole scope of scientific knowledge in the medieval period in more than 300 A to Z entries. This comprehensive resource discusses the research, application of knowledge, cultural and technology exchanges, experimentation, and achievements in the many disciplines related to science and technology. It also looks at the relationship between medieval science and the traditions it supplanted.

Written by a select group of international scholars, this reference work will be of great use to scholars, students, and general readers researching topics in many fields, including medieval studies, world history, history of science, history of technology, history of medicine, and cultural studies.

Crystal Wands: For Massage Therapy, Reflexology, and Energy Medicine, 2nd Edition

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Crystal Wands: For Massage Therapy, Reflexology, and Energy Medicine, 2nd Edition
Feb 192018
 

A full-color guide to using crystal wands in bodywork and energy medicine

• Explores the healing properties and indications for more than 70 crystal wands
• Explains how the shape of a crystal wand amplifies the crystal’s energetic effects and provides long-lasting results
• Provides step-by-step instructions for crystal-wand techniques in massage and reflexology, in energy work such as aura tuning and chakra balancing, and for protection, power, and relaxation

The healing powers of crystals and gemstones were known more than eight hundred years ago by the mystic Hildegard von Bingen and as far back as two millennia ago by the Greek physician Dioskurides. In this full-color illustrated guide, Ewald Kliegel explains the benefits of incorporating crystal wands into your bodywork and healing practice and details the techniques of doing so.

Exploring the energetics of crystals and their interactions with the physical and energy bodies, including the overall sense of well-being they impart that underlies their other beneficial effects, the author explains how the versatile shape of a crystal wand amplifies the crystal’s energetic effects and offers advantages in massage and reflexology over other shapes of crystals and stones. The larger rounded end can act as a crystal sphere for massaging knots or large areas, whereas the tapered end is ideal for stimulating reflex zones, targeting acupressure points, and tracing meridian lines.
