- Resistance to Change Health care organizations are in a continual state of change so they can adapt and grow. Effective nurse leaders must be well equipped to handle the complexities of change, and be prepared to deal with resistance to change. According to Marquis and Huston (2015), change is a complicated process that requires planning, and it takes time to be able to recognize, address, and overcome resistance. Resistance to change can vary, but nurse leaders need to be empowered to buffer the negative effects of resistance (Montani, Courcy, Giorgi, & Boilard, 2015)....   [tags: Leadership, Management, Health care, Nurse]

Biography of Donatien Alphonse François de Sade

- The Marquis de Sade led a lifestyle that disgusted some but influenced others. “This was a life, then, of swashbuckling adventure, narrow escapes, wild abandon, and bloody crime” (Lever, introduction on front flap). He is famous for coining the term “sadism” from his known love for sexual violence in his own life and literature. The Marquis’ own libertine values, which allowed for him to escape the moral restraints of law and religion, allowed for his life and works of literature to challenge censorship....   [tags: law, religion, prison]

Dr. Mary Anne Warren

- ... So, with that being said, Marquis would most likely persuade Jack to lean against Jill getting an abortion performed on her. He would persuade Jack to lean against abortion because Marquis feels that a fetus has just as much potential as a child who is already born and living its life. He feels that if an abortion were to take place, Jack would be depriving that unborn fetus of a future that could’ve been valuable. Jill, on the other hand, is slightly against abortion already because like marquis, she feels that life starts at conception, and isn’t sure that an abortion would be the right thing to do in this situation....   [tags: Pregnancy, Abortion, Fetus]

Is The Fetus A Person With A Right?

- “Is the fetus a person with a right to life?” This is what people usually start off by asking when discussing the morality of abortion. “Do we have the same reasons not to kill a fetus that we have not to kill an adult?” This is what Don Marquis is asking. Marquis explains that killing adults is wrong because it deprives them of their future (RTD pg. 81). But in killing a fetus we are also depriving it of its future, therefore it is contradictory to favor one and not the other. What makes killing wrong, according to Marquis, is not its effect on the murderer nor its effect on the victim’s friends and relatives, but its effect on the victim (RTD pg....   [tags: Morality, Abortion, Human, Abortion debate]

Is Abortion Morally Permissible or Not?

- ... Don Marquis spearheads the potentiality argument in his essay on the immorality of abortion (Study Guide, pp. 167-73), claiming that it is impermissible because it deprives the foetus of a “future like ours,” and is consequently morally on par with killing a healthy adult (Study Guide, p. 170). Despite Marquis’ claims that his argument combines the best aspects of the personhood and sanctity of life ideas to produce a superior ethical theory on the immorality of abortion (Study Guide, p. 170), his argument features many flaws, including seemingly ad hoc explanations to avoid speciesism (Study Guide, p....   [tags: conservative and liberal, pros and cons]

She suggests that even if the fetus is a person with the rights of such, there are situations where a woman could still be just in killing it, in the same perspective that killing a fetus without personhood and rights of a human being may not n...   [tags: Pregnancy, Fetus, Abortion, Morality]

The Fuel for Inhumanity in Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities

A look into every aspect of this epoch in both France and England reveals the faults that enable man to overlook the value of another individual’s life.
