Death defeats the idea because it is cut, gap elusive. It also puts the power failure because of the subject is characterized by loss of control. But here is the attention now focuses less on the enigma of death on the conditions of dying. The outcome was the promotion of "dying". This new category as it magnifies exile one who dies. She ordered him to comply with an ideal control in line with the idea of an illusory transparent individual to himself. It must define solitary dignity and worth of life and reduced to a mere personal convenience. By combining this approach psychoanalytic, sociological and philosophical, this book will enlighten us about what death and dying mean today. Three writers gathered to write about the dying: - The diginité the dying of Jacques-Ricot Instead of dying of Patrick Baudry-The status of the dying Robert William Higgins

The dignity of dying

Abstract: The dignity of dying is first that of a living which can not be banished beyond the human community. And dignity of man lies in its humanité.Il should not confuse the meaning of the constitutive dignity of human beings with a different meaning which refers to a form of greatness, nobility, pride, decency.

But lack of decency, lose self-esteem, no longer correspond to the usual standards, it is not leave humanity. Sometimes, a shift in meaning uncontrolled, that dignity is reduced to a certain mere personal convenience, a freedom as absolute sovereignty of the subject. Certainly, respect for the dignity of etrehumain implies respect for his freedom, but not any liberté.En Indeed, one can not confuse it with a free self. Freedom properly understood does not impair the dignity inconditionnelle.Jacques Ricot is a professor in preparatory classes in high school science Clemenceau Nantes, lecturer of bioethics at the Department of Philosophy at the University of Nantes, board member of the association Philosophia.Il lectures on philosophical issues, particularly around the issue of forgiveness, of the inhuman, dignity, from the end of life and peace.
Instead of dying

Abstract: The extent to which it is an experience difficult, uncomfortable, no definitive answer possible, that the individual may attempt to cling to what he would "finally" to end his same: that is to say sasingularité as it exposes its own otherness.

Have you encountered information or, more specifically, models of living arrangements during your research, on the matter of seniors and intentional community? I lived in such a community for 6 months and saw the benefits for all involved, the caregivers, and elders and visitors. Not a job but more of a lifestyle.
