Making Tough Decisions about End-of-Life Care in Dementia (A 36-Hour Day Book) by Anne Kenny
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.7 MB
Overview: Each year, more than 500,000 people are diagnosed with dementia in the United States. As stunning as that figure is, countless family members and caregivers are also affected by each diagnosis.

Families are faced with the need to make vital end-of-life decisions about medical treatment, legal and financial matters, and living situations for those who no longer can; no one is prepared for this process. And many caregivers grapple with sadness, confusion, guilt, anger, and physical and mental exhaustion as dementia enters its final stage.

In Making Tough Decisions about End-of-Life Care in Dementia, Dr. Anne Kenny, a skilled palliative care physician, describes how to navigate the difficult journey of late-stage dementia with sensitivity, compassion, and common sense. Combining her personal experience caring for a mother with dementia with her medical expertise in both dementia and end-of-life care, Dr. Kenny helps the reader prepare for a family member’s death while managing their own emotional health.

Download Kangaroo Dreaming by Edward Kanze (.ePUB)

Kangaroo Dreaming: An Australian Wildlife Odyssey by Edward Kanze
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 6 mb
Overview: Over nine adventurous months, Edward and Debbie Kanze drove an old station wagon 25,000 miles around Australia, spending nearly all that time in places where wildlife abounds.

The Kanzes’ odyssey began in Melbourne. Soon they were reeling from the cold, rocky mountains of Tasmania (home of the devil, who appears in these pages) via Ayers Rock and the central deserts to the steamy, crocodile-infested estuaries of the Northern Territory. The couple slept on the ground amid the world’s most dangerous serpents. They endured the seductive bonhomie of lotos-eating Australians and hob-knobbed with kangaroos, koalas, wombats, platypuses, giant monitor lizards, kookaburras, and more than 400 species of birds. They ran a gauntlet of epic hazards. All these adventures come alive in Kangaroo Dreaming, a humorous walkabout through the flora, fauna, geography, and history of the surreal over-the-rainbow place Australians call “Oz.”

Never before has an armchair traveler enjoyed such an engaging opportunity to explore the “Downunderworld,” a beautiful and sometimes dangerous land where the air is warm, the beer is cold, and the marsupials outnumber humans.

Download Self-Consciousness and ‘Split’ Brains by Elizabeth Schechter (.PDF)

Self-Consciousness and ‘Split’ Brains: The Minds’ I by Elizabeth Schechter
Requirements: .PDF reader, 20,0 Mb
Overview: Could a single human being ever have multiple conscious minds? Some human beings do. The corpus callosum is a large pathway connecting the two hemispheres of the brain. In the second half of the twentieth century a number of people had this pathway cut through as a treatment for epilepsy. They became colloquially known as split-brain subjects. After the two hemispheres of the brain are cortically separated in this way, they begin to operate unusually independently of each other in the realm of thought, action, and conscious experience, almost as if each hemisphere now had a mind of its own.
Philosophical discussion of the split-brain cases has overwhelmingly focused on questions of psychological identity in split-brain subjects, questions like: How many subjects of experience is a split-brain subject? How many intentional agents? How many persons? On the one hand, under experimental conditions, split-brain subjects often act in ways difficult to understand except in terms of each of them having two distinct streams or centers of consciousness. Split-brain subjects thus evoke the duality intuition: that a single split-brain human being is somehow composed of two thinking, experiencing, and acting things. On the other hand, a split-brain subject nonetheless seems like one of us, at the end of the day, rather than like two people sharing one body. In other words, split-brain subjects also evoke the unity intuition: that a split-brain subject is one person.
Elizabeth Schechter argues that there are in fact two minds, subjects of experience, and intentional agents inside each split-brain human being: right and left. On the other hand, each split-brain subject is nonetheless one of us. The key to reconciling these two claims is to understand the ways in which each of us is transformed by self-consciousness.
