The Social and Moral concept of Cynicism and Stoicism

The quiz that I had last week about my Philosophy of Human Person subject is: Explain the concepts of Cynicism and Stoicism in the context of man's moral and social order. And here is my answer:

a. Cynicism 
Moral: A person should live a life in a simple but virtuous kind of life by leaving all his possessions behind, leaving his wealth, fame, power and selfish desires so he could share a virtuous kind of life in helping others to not feel insincere and distrustful about the world. 

Social: It was reflected that all products of civilization are worthless and that man must attain freedom by not thinking more of desires and selfish ways in attaining life - free oneself from any material and selfish possessions or desires. 

b. Stoicism 
Moral: What a person do is to do right things and perform them like helping others and when he finds a thing bad, don't do them to others. He should have the right conscience in doing things. 

Social: Persons should be indifferent or non-committal to do for things because no matter how he tries, God predestined his life according to God's plan.

I am having my reaction paper quite done.

Making a reaction paper is like making a diary. All it takes is my opinion and all will be fine. The ideas will flow based on what I do really like to say. I love to have written what is my side of story based from the concepts of Pope John Paul II's Theology of the Body.

There are lots of things to discuss and it all boils down to a sort of discussion that makes me aware and lets me know what is really the real story behind his teachings.

I have shown and express my reactions in many ways. I have been able to donate my ideas and have reacted in a manner that drives me to really express what I feel. I am that enthusiast enough to have mustered everything from what I would like to share. And now, I am on my halfway.

The Celibate Body

I have made an reaction about the topic that I have to discuss about Pope John Paul II's Theology of the Body - The Celibate Body. Here are parts of my written composition:

Theology of the Body – the Celibate Body by Pope John Paul II: A Reaction Paper

            Pope John Paul II gave his first major teachings entitled “Theology of the Body”, a collection of 129 Wednesday audiences assesses that clearly view an in-depth Biblical reflection on the meaning of human embodiment as male and female. His teachings is in fact today’s still one of the Catholic Church’s most critical efforts to tell the world and become more conscious of the mystery and reality of human life.
            Part of Pope John Paul II’s teaching in the “Theology of the Body” deals on the Celibate Body which we, as a group are bound to circulate our reactions on this topic.
            Indeed, there are lots to say about “The Celibate Body” but our reaction gives views on topics that centers on Pope John Paul’s idea on “Virginity or Celibacy for the Sake of the Kingdom”.
            Analyzing from this point, it is better to add up the nature of sexuality and marriage in order for us to finally come up with the idea of what celibacy really means.
            Pope John Paul II opened up to begin discussing virginity or celibacy for the kingdom of heaven which viewed the Bible verse from Mark 12: 25 that says, “When they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage.” From this evidence, we therefore can say that there is really a condition that there is really life without marriage. Our being single as male or female, man and woman per se explains the fullness of our existence as our “self” rather “double” as one. Even in the times when mothers gave birth to every sibling, persons are not doubled. And the concept of Pope John Paul II’s idea on man’s future resurrection, every individual clearly perceives to be as one, single – man or woman. Thus, we can relate this to the word “continence”, no involvement of sex, that, in donating oneself to God, it calls for virginity and celibacy for the kingdom of heaven.
            As we contemplate, circling our minds thinking of the idea, “in donating oneself of God, it calls for virginity and celibacy for the kingdom of heaven”, we then can evaluate that this has something to do with those serving in the church specifically the priests and nuns who in their lives remain celibate because of the nature of their chosen vocation in serving God’s kingdom.
            It can be traced up in the history of the church about celibacy came into such in the Western Church in the early Middle Ages that Gregory VII issued a decree against clerical marriages which viewed that the Church was a thousand years old before it definitely took a stand in favor of celibacy in the twelfth century at the Second Lateran Council held in 1139 when a rule was approved forbidding priests to marry. In effect, the Council of Trent reaffirmed the tradition of celibacy on 1563. Though there were debates about this mandate or regulation on celibacy, Protestants took exception of it. But prior to that, the priest before can have family. They can have children and a wife. Before, priests had freedom of choice as to say, but that choice was ended until the fourth century when a large number of clergy during this period indeed choose celibacy.

Generic Drug, Orphan Drug, OTC Drug

I really love learning Pharmacology in Nursing. It apts me to really think about the kind of things that I should know about drugs.

Generic drugs - chemicals that are produced by companies that just manufacture drugs.
Reasons:  They don't have the research, the advertising or sometimes the quality control department that pharmaceutic companies have. They are cheap drugs.

Dispensed as Written (DAW) - the brand name product be used. Prescribers ensures quality control and bio-availability expected with that drug.

Orphan drugs are drugs that have been discovered but are not financially viable and therefore have not been "adopted" by any drug company. These are drugs used to treat rare disease or may have potentially dangerous adverse effects.

Over-the-counter (OTC) drugs - are products that are available without the prescription for self-treatment of a variety of complaints.

Problems relating to OTC drugs:
1. Taking these drugs could mask the signs and symptoms of underlying disease, making diagnosis difficult.
2. Taking these drugs with prescription medications should result in drug interactions and interfere with drug therapy.
3. Not taking these drugs as directed could result in serious overdoses.
