Deconstruction

 

The term "déconstruction" appears for the first time in 1955 in the French translation by Gérard Granel of Heidegger's Contributions à la question de l'être (Zur Seinsfrage). And as a translation of the German term "Abbau".

The term refers to an operation that is exercised over the traditional structure or architecture of the founding concepts of Western ontology or metaphysics.

Medios narrativos para atajar los vómitos en un niño

ES

En una Conferencia sobre Terapia Familiares en Toronto, Ontario, Canadá en 1996, Jill Freedman contó esta historia, que a su vez le había contado David Epston:

Hubo una llamada telefónica de una madre que dijo "Mi hijo está hospitalizado y me han recomendado a usted." Una consecuencia del problema médico era que la ingesta de alimentos daba lugar a vómitos inmediatamente.

The Likely Cause of Addiction Has Been Discovered, and It Is Not What You Think

EN

Original article here

It is now one hundred years since drugs were first banned — and all through this long century of waging war on drugs, we have been told a story about addiction by our teachers and by our governments. This story is so deeply ingrained in our minds that we take it for granted. It seems obvious. It seems manifestly true. Until I set off three and a half years ago on a 30,000-mile journey for my new book, Chasing The Scream: The First And Last Days of the War on Drugs, to figure out what is really driving the drug war, I believed it too. But what I learned on the road is that almost everything we have been told about addiction is wrong — and there is a very different story waiting for us, if only we are ready to hear it.

If we truly absorb this new story, we will have to change a lot more than the drug war. We will have to change ourselves.
