The theory of conduct
is "the study of right and wrong,
of obligation and permissions, of duty,
and of what is so wrong as to be evil."
But matters can be simplified considerably.
Each of these concepts,
"right," "wrong," "obligation,"
"permission," "virtue," "vice,"
and so forth can be defined in relation
to their opposing concepts.
For example, by defining "right action,"
"wrong action" may then be
defined as an "action that is not right."
Examples: If an action is right,
then am I obliged to do it?
If I ought to do something,
then would I be practicing a virtue if I did it?
The question here is whether morality
might have anything to do with
leading your personal life
in a virtuous or a corrupt way,
so long as it does
not directly affect other people.
It seems to me pretty obvious that it does.
In fact, I would submit to you that this is one
of the most important things that a
theory of conduct can do for us --
it can provide us with wisdom about
how we should live all aspects of our lives,
personal and social.
Sanity considered as a legal term
denotes that an individual is of sound mind and
therefore can bear legal responsibility for his or her actions.
It is generally defined in terms of the absence of insanity.
It is not a medical term, although the opinions of medical
experts are often important in making a legal decision as
to whether someone is sane or insane. It is also not the
same concept as mental illness. One can be acting under
profound mental illness and yet be sane, and one can also
be ruled insane without an underlying mental illness.
Sanity outside of legal definitions has been little explored
by science and medicine, as the concentration has been on illness.
Dr. P.S. Graven suggested the term "un-sane"
to describe a condition that is not exactly insane,
but not quite sane either.
A theory of sanity was proposed by Alfred Korzybski
in his general semantics. Basically he believed that
sanity was tied to the structural fit or lack of it
between our reactions to the world and what is
actually going on in the world. He expressed this
notion in a map-territory analogy: "A map is not
the territory it represents, but, if correct,
it has a similar structure to the territory,
which accounts for its usefulness."
Then suppose you decide, after all that careful work,
that as it turns out, rule consequentialism --
perhaps a rule version of hybrid consequentialism --
is the correct theory of conduct.
So now you're convinced you know what, in general, you ought to do,
and you think you've given a philosophical justification for this.
But even after all of that, someone might still not care,
choosing instead their own personal gain. You can't reason
those people into being personable; they're not personable,
they'll take advantage of you, and there isn't a
whole lot that you can do about it except to protect yourself.
A mental illness is
a disorder of the brain that results in a disruption
in a person's thinking, feeling, moods, and ability to relate to others.
Mental health, mental hygiene, behavioral health, and mental wellness are all
terms used to describe the state or absence of mental illness.
Most psychologists attribute mental illness to organic/neurochemical causes
that can be treated with psychiatric medication, psychotherapy, lifestyle
adjustments and other supportive measures; however, many of the causes of
mental illness are still unknown. The battle between "nature" and "nurture"
goes on as it has for years. Neuroscience and genetics are still unable to fully
explain the effects of genetic inheritance and developmental environment.
According to the 2003 report of the U.S. President's New Freedom Commission
on Mental Health, major mental illness, including clinical depression,
bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and obsessive-compulsive disorder,
when compared with all other diseases (such as cancer and heart disease),
is the most common cause of disability in the United States.
A curse is a prayer asking that a god or similar spirit
bring misfortune to someone; an imprecation or execration,
the opposite of a blessing or charm.
A curse can be said to be the effective implementation
of the god's wrath against the victim of the curse.
Other sorts of curses are imposed by magic or witchcraft,
such as the evil eye or the use of voodoo dolls.
Cursing rests on the belief in the possibility of some
power bringing down calamity upon persons or things;
and that this curse can be made effective by the mere power
of the spoken word, without any regard to its moral justification.
In a broader sense, 'curse' is a loose synonym for blasphemy
or profanity (i.e. a 'curse word'). The curse is also another
term for the original sin of Adam and Eve.
Belief in curses is a part of the vague sort of animism,
similar to belief in luck, that is a part of folk religion
and popular superstition. The deliberate levying
of these sorts of curses is a part of the practice of magic,
or perhaps lies on the boundaries between magic and religion.
Some people claiming to be clairvoyants or
practitioners of divination attempt to get money
from the gullible by telling them they are under curses
that only their apotropaic powers can remove.
This is an ancient type of confidence trick
familiar to the Egyptians, and a species of fraud,
unlawful under the laws of many jurisdictions.
Public health is an aspect of health services
concerned with threats to the overall health of a community
based on population health analysis.
It generally includes surveillance and control
of disease and promotion of healthy behaviors
among members of the community. Prevention is another
Public health promotes not simply the
absence of disease but mental,
physical, and emotional well-being.
The WHO sets standards and provides global surveillance,
but national bodies such as the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia in the USA and their
local affiliated Medical Officer of Health are usually
the lead in responding to public health threats.
The frontline on public health initiatives are state
and local health departments. The Surgeon General
is in charge of the United States Public Health Service (U.S.P.H.S..)
This agency provides the nation with public health services and activites.
