Future Generations? Should we Care?

by Omega Health Psychology and Philosophy Series

In this century, one of the biggest challenges we face as a collective human race, is the problem of climate change. Already we have seen the climate changing, with the prognosis being that the effects of climate change will only get worse. In fact, only in a few hundred years, our planet may be completely uninhabitable. However, in discussing how best to reduce the effects of climate change, there seems to be one overarching unanswered question; should we really care about the existence and well-being of future generations in the first place? Should the answer to this be negative, then that means we shouldn’t worry too much about the detrimental effects climate change may have on future generations. The reason this comes in to question is because of the non-identity problem; a problem which points to the fact that one cannot regret actions that also caused one to exist. In the following, we will be looking into and be discussing the non-identity problem and possible ways to solve it. The non-identity problem sheds light on a few intuitions we may hold about existence and harm. These intuitions, that I will later formulate as claims, will need to be challenged if we are to stand a chance in solving the non-identity problem. These the main intuitions will make out the majority of the discussion. The first claim to be discussed is that ethics is person-affecting. Secondly, We will look into the claim that we have been benefited by coming into existence. The third and final claim I will discuss is that it is not possible to be harmed by an action without also being worse off by that action and argue that we should hold a person-affecting view in ethics, rather than an impersonal view. Also look closer at and defend the claim that our existence begins at conception, and building on this, argue that our existence is neither a benefit nor a harm to us. Instead I will suggest that we understand it as morally neutral. Also, the favor of the idea that it may be possible to hold that one can be harmed without being worse off. The author will argue that the non-identity problem is in itself not possible to solve. The author also offers two possible solutions. The first it that it is already the fact that we care about the existence of future generations, and for consistency’s sake, we should also therefore care about their well-being. The other solution the author offers is that we take the butterfly effect more seriously, understanding that separating which specific action ones existence depended on, is so difficult that it makes the non-identity problem seem less significant.



Efectos de estrés agudo sobre parámetros bioquímicos e inmunológicos en pacientes ingresados a terapia intensiva (Spanish Edition)

by Claudio Marcelo Larrea Arnau

Este libro surge de un trabajo de investigación realizado en una unidad de cuidados intensivos sobre pacientes que fueron ingresados por politraumatismo, y a los que se les determinó parámetros bioquímicos e inmunológicos. Además se incluyó en el trabajo pacientes ingresados con otras patologías para comparar el grado de estrés agudo que estaban sufriendo en las primeras 72 horas de la internación.
Si bien los resultados se circunscriben a estos pacientes y estas patologías, los resultados bien pueden ser extrapolados a experiencia de la vida cotidiana de las personas que sufren un intenso estrés agudo. Esto, con el sólo hecho de tener nociones sobre el impacto del estrés sobre el sistema inmune y la homeostasis en general de las personas y con el objeto de paliar la situación por diferentes medios.
Lo que está claro es que el estrés agudo genera dentro de las primeras 72 horas una inmunodepresión la cual según sea el caso que se trate puede llevar a la persona a un escenario caótico o bien prepararla para sobrevivir.
