2 The State Of Affairs - Esther Perel
Auteur : Esther Perel
Genre : Développement personnel

Is there such a thing as an affair-proof marriage? Is it possible to love more than one person at once? Why do people cheat? Can an affair ever help a marriage?

Infidelity is the ultimate betrayal. But does it have to be? Relationship therapist Esther Perel examines why people cheat, and unpacks why affairs are so traumatic; because they threaten our emotional security. In infidelity, she sees something unexpected - an expression of longing and loss.

A must-read for anyone who has ever cheated or been cheated on, or who simply wants a new framework for understanding relationships.

'Esther Perel does nothing short of strip us of our deepest biases, remind us of our purpose in connecting as lovers, and save relationships that might otherwise sink into the sea-all with even-hande

3 Rethinking Narcissism - Dr. Craig Malkin
Auteur : Dr. Craig Malkin
Genre : Psychologie
Harvard Medical School psychologist and Huffington Post blogger Craig Malkin addresses the "narcissism epidemic," by illuminating the spectrum of narcissism, identifying ways to control the trait, and explaining how too little of it may be a bad thing.

"What is narcissism?" is one of the fastest rising searches on Google, and articles on the topic routinely go viral. Yet, the word "narcissist" seems to mean something different every time it's uttered. People hurl the word as insult at anyone who offends them. It's become so ubiquitous, in fact, that it's lost any clear meaning. The only certainty these days is that it's bad to be a narcissist—really bad—inspiring the same kind of roiling queasiness we feel when we hear the words sexist or racist. That's especially troubling news for millennials, the people born after 1980, who've been branded the "most narcissistic generat

4 Rethinking Positive Thinking - Gabriele Oettingen
Auteur : Gabriele Oettingen
Genre : Psychologie
“The solution isn’t to do away with dreaming and positive thinking. Rather, it’s making the most of our fantasies by brushing them up against the very thing most of us are taught to ignore or diminish: the obstacles that stand in our way.”

So often in our day-to-day lives we’re inundated with advice to “think positively.” From pop music to political speeches to commercials, the general message is the same: look on the bright side, be optimistic in the face of adversity, and focus on your dreams. And whether we’re trying to motivate ourselves to lose weight, snag a promotion at work, or run a marathon, we’re told time and time again that focusing on fulfilling our wishes will make them come true.

Gabriele Oettingen draws on more than twenty years of research in the science of human motivation to reveal why the conventional wisdom falls short. The ob

6 The State of Affairs - Esther Perel
Auteur : Esther Perel
Genre : Psychologie
Iconic couples’ therapist and bestselling author of Mating in Captivity Esther Perel returns with a provocative look at relationships through the lens of infidelity.

An affair: it can rob a couple of their relationship, their happiness, their very identity. And yet, this extremely common human experience is so poorly understood. What are we to make of this time-honored taboo—universally forbidden yet universally practiced? Why do people cheat—even those in happy marriages? Why does an affair hurt so much? When we say infidelity, what exactly do we mean? Do our romantic expectations of marriage set us up for betrayal? Is there such a thing as an affair-proof marriage? Is it possible to love more than one person at once? Can an affair ever help a marriage? Perel weaves real-life case stories with incisive psychological and cultural analysis in this fast-paced and

7 Beyond Biocentrism - Robert Lanza
Auteur : Robert Lanza
Genre : Science et nature
Biocentrism shocked the world with a radical rethinking of the nature of reality.

But that was just the beginning.

In Beyond Biocentrism, acclaimed biologist Robert Lanza, one of TIME Magazine’s "100 Most Influential People in 2014," and leading astronomer Bob Berman, take the reader on an intellectual thrill-ride as they re-examine everything we thought we knew about life, death, the universe, and the nature of reality itself.

The first step is acknowledging that our existing model of reality is looking increasingly creaky in the face of recent scientific discoveries. Science tells us with some precision that the universe is 26.8 percent dark matter, 68.3 percent dark energy, and only 4.9 percent ordinary matter, but must confess that it doesn’t really know what dark matter is and knows even less about dark energy.

8 Poor Economics - Abhijit Banerjee & Esther Duflo
Auteur : Abhijit Banerjee & Esther Duflo
Genre : Économie
Two practical visionaries upend the most common assumptions about how economics works in this gripping and disruptive portrait of how poor people actually live.

Why do the poor borrow to save? Why do they miss out on free life-saving immunizations, but pay for unnecessary drugs? In Poor Economics, Abhijit V. Banerjee and Esther Duflo, two award-winning MIT professors, answer these questions based on years of field research from around the world. Called "marvelous, rewarding" by the Wall Street Journal, the book offers a radical rethinking of the economics of poverty and an intimate view of life on 99 cents a day. Poor Economics shows that creating a world without poverty begins with understanding the daily decisions facing the poor.

9 Rethinking the Internet of Things - Francis daCosta & Byron Henderson
Auteur : Francis daCosta & Byron Henderson
Genre : Réseau
Apress is proud to announce that Rethinking the Internet of Things was a 2014 Jolt Award Finalist, the highest honor for a programming book. And the amazing part is that there is no code in the book.

Over the next decade, most devices connected to the Internet will not be used by people in the familiar way that personal computers, tablets and smart phones are. Billions of interconnected devices will be monitoring the environment, transportation systems, factories, farms, forests, utilities, soil and weather conditions, oceans and resources.

Many of these sensors and actuators will be networked into autonomous sets, with much of the information being exchanged machine-to-machine directly and without human involvement. Machine-to-machine communications are typically terse. Most sensors and actuators will report or act upon small pieces of information - "chirps". Burde

11 Humility Is the New Smart - Edward D. Hess & Katherine Ludwig
Auteur : Edward D. Hess & Katherine Ludwig
Genre : Management et direction
Humility Is the New Smart

Your job is at risk—if not now, then soon. We are on the leading edge of a Smart Machine Age led by artificial intelligence that will be as transformative for us as the Industrial Revolution was for our ancestors. Smart machines will take over millions of jobs in manufacturing, office work, the service sector, the professions, you name it. Not only can they know more data and analyze it faster than any mere human, say Edward Hess and Katherine Ludwig, but smart machines are free of the emotional, psychological, and cultural baggage that so often mars human thinking.

So we can't beat 'em and we can't join 'em. To stay relevant, we have to play a different game. Hess and Ludwig offer us that game plan. We need to excel at critical, creative, and innovative thinking and at genuinely engaging with others—things machines can't do well. The

14 Rethinking Historical Time - Marek Tamm & Laurent Olivier
Auteur : Marek Tamm & Laurent Olivier
Genre : Histoire
Is time out of joint? For the past two centuries, the dominant Western time regime has been future-oriented and based on the linear, progressive and homogeneous concept of time. Over the last few decades, there has been a shift towards a new, present-oriented regime or 'presentism', made up of multiple and percolating temporalities. Rethinking Historical Time engages with this change of paradigm, providing a timely overview of cutting-edge interdisciplinary approaches to this new temporal condition.

Marek Tamm and Laurent Olivier have brought together an international team of scholars working in history, anthropology, archaeology, geography, philosophy, literature and visual studies to rethink the epistemological consequences of presentism for the study of past and to discuss critically the traditional assumptions that underpin research on historical time. Beginning wit

15 Rethinking Pain - Dr Helena Miranda MD & Sheryl Hinkkanen
Auteur : Dr Helena Miranda MD & Sheryl Hinkkanen
Genre : Forme et santé
A practical and empathetic guide to a revolutionary approach to living well with chronic pain, based on the fundamental principles that: all pain experienced is real; wherever the trouble arises, pain is experienced in the brain; all pain is unique to the individual sufferer; the key to overcoming pain is not to strive to be pain-free but to minimise the experience of it. Dr Miranda, based on her medical practice as a pain specialist and on her experience as a pain patient, shows how to do this through a series of clearly explained tools and strategies.

16 Rethinking Consumer Protection - Thomas Tacker
Auteur : Thomas Tacker
Genre : Économie
This book explains how revamped consumer protection regulations, allowing greater individual choice, along with the government partially shifting to more of an advisory role, can save many thousands of lives annually, and make medicines and other products radically cheaper. Major case studies include the FDA, TSA passenger screening, and Uber versus taxis.

17 Energy in Three Dimensions: The Rationale for Energy Policy Must Be About More Than Climate Change and Green Energy (Rethinking ENERGY POLICY) - Issues in Science and Technology
Auteur : Issues in Science and Technology
Genre : Ingénierie
The United States has been unable to develop any coherent energy program that can last past changes in the control of our federal executive or Congress. The latest failure was the Waxman-Markey cap-and-trade bill that would have driven an enormous change in the country's energy supply system in the name of controlling global warming. It barely passed the House and went nowhere in the Senate, where what had started as a nonpartisan and more moderate effort by Senators Graham, Kerry, and Lieberman died in the polarized atmosphere that developed in the campaign season leading up to the 2010 congressional elections. I wonder if a big part of our current problem is an overemphasis on "greenness," leading to a too-narrow focus on climate change as the sole driver for action. The public debate on energy is dominated by climate change and its deniers and its exaggerators. The deniers say glob

18 Communicating Consent (Rethinking Informed Consent in Bioethics) (Book Review) - The Hastings Center Report
Auteur : The Hastings Center Report
Genre : Science de la vie
Rethinking Informed Consent in Bioethics. By Neil C. Manson and Onora O'Neill. Cambridge University Press, 2007. 226 pages. $34.99. Paperback. It is by now a platitude that informed consent is one of the most central and discussed concepts in bioethics. In Rethinking Informed Consent in Bioethics, Neil Manson and Onora O'Neill argue that the notion of informed consent has been fundamentally distorted and in various ways overemphasized in bioethical discourse and in medical practice. Drawing on George Lakoff and Mark Johnson's discussion of structuring metaphors, they argue that bioethicists have understood the informed consent process as a kind of abstract transfer of "containers" of information along "conduits" that run between doctors and patients. In contrast, they draw upon pragmatic speech act theory in the philosophy of language to develop an account of informed consent as a com

19 The Future of the Dollar: Currency Challenges in a Globalized World (Rethinking FINANCE) - Harvard International Review
Auteur : Harvard International Review
Genre : Entreprise et management
"They get our oil and give us a worthless piece of paper," exclaimed Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at an OPEC summit in November 2007. Unkind words about the American currency from an Iranian president could normally be dismissed as political bluster, but in this case it was bluster with a disturbing kernel of truth to it. Over the course of 2007, states with large dollar holdings were becoming increasingly fearful about the dollar's long-term global purchasing power, but they simply had less incentive to sound the alarm about it.

20 Path to Recovery: A Libertarian Perspective on Economic Crisis (Rethinking Finance) (Interview) - Harvard International Review
Auteur : Harvard International Review
Genre : Entreprise et management
In your statements, you have advocated tax cuts over government spending as a policy instrument for economic stimulus. Could you explain why tax cuts would be more efficient? I would not use the words "more efficient," but I will come back to that. My view is that spending increases would certainly make sense if there were projects available to the government that clearly had benefits in excess of costs. Standard examples would be bridges that are falling down and that need to be repaired. I completely accept that there must be some projects out there that the government needs to do, and there are clearly some parts of the interstate highway system that are in need of repair. However, I am skeptical that there is anything remotely near to US$500 billion of projects that make sense on standard cost-benefit terms, which the government would want to fund independent of the recession.

22 Necessary Reform? the IMF and International Financial Architecture (Rethinking Finance) (International Monetary Fund) - Harvard International Review
Auteur : Harvard International Review
Genre : Entreprise et management
The most salient issue of those concerned with the international financial architecture back in mid-2007 was "governance," in particular governance of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). This involved, among other things, the selection of future Managing Directors (by convention since 1946 always a European), representation on the Executive Board (which is responsible for the operating decisions of the IMF), and voting rights, which were based on out-dated formulae. The "legitimacy" of the IMF was said to be in doubt. This concern with governance was against a backdrop of excellent performance of the world economy since 2002, high and widespread growth, and low inflation but rising commodity prices, which helped exporters of primary products. The IMF had made no significant loans since 2003, many countries had repaid their outstanding debts to the IMF (down from US$107 billion in 2003

23 Monetary Integration: Prospects for a Changing World Economy (Rethinking FINANCE) - Harvard International Review
Auteur : Harvard International Review
Genre : Entreprise et management
Only a short time ago, economists were predicting that the number of currencies in the global monetary system would fall from more than 150 to perhaps three or four. In 2001, Harvard's Kenneth Rogoff wrote in the American Economic Review, "It appears likely that the number of currencies in the world, having proliferated along with the number of countries over the past fifty years, will decline sharply over the next two decades." While a domestic currency had traditionally been conceived as part of a nation's sovereignty and tied to its political existence, there was no reason for that to persist. Leaving politics aside, the consolidation of currencies could be seen as a logical next step in the globalization process, one that followed quite rationally from the increasingly globalized pattern of trade.

24 Rethinking Think Tanks in Contemporary China - Silvia Menegazzi
Auteur : Silvia Menegazzi
Genre : Politique et actualité
This book analyzes how Chinese think tanks have become essential actors in today’s Chinese foreign policy and diplomatic practices. By providing an in-depth analysis of their roles, functions and transformation in the last decade, this study explains how they differ from their Western counterparts and how they have developed during Hu Jintao’s and Xi Jinping’s mandates. Think tanks are often thought to only be able to gain access to political processes within democratic contexts. This book suggests that even in the more ambiguous Chinese political environment, think tanks remain essential actors where ideas, discourses and beliefs about foreign policy and diplomacy are generated, framed and discussed vis-à-vis China’s ascent role in international affairs and global governance.

26 Help, I Need Somebody: Rethinking How We Conceptualize Honors (Forum on "Helping Honors Students in Trouble") (Essay) - Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council
Auteur : Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council
Genre : Éducation
The very morning I received the JNCHC announcement of an issue devoted to honors students in trouble, I met with the mother of a freshman honors student who had threatened that weekend to kill herself. The parent, who had flown over two thousand miles to our campus, was predictably upset and the student demoralized. After individual conversations with each party, during which we decided the best course of action for the student would be to leave honors, I listened to this young lady make the courageous admission that she had never wanted to join the honors program but did so only to please her parents. other honors students this year have struggled through brutal conflicts with family members, homesickness, substance abuse, computer addiction, and severe motivation problems without resolving the issues successfully. I found myself wondering about the causes of these painful misfortune

28 Rethinking the Union of Europe Post-Crisis - Giandomenico Majone
Auteur : Giandomenico Majone
Genre : Droit
In this important new book, Giandomenico Majone examines the crucial but often overlooked distinction between the general aim of European integration and the specific method of integration employed in designing an (ill-considered) monetary union. Written with the author's customary insight and precision, this highly topical and provocative book reviews the Union's leaders' tradition of pushing through ambitious projects without considering the serious hurdles that lie in the way of their success. Regional and European integration topics are discussed, including credibility of commitments, delegation of powers, bargaining and influence activities, adverse selection and moral hazard. The author also offers a deeper examination of the specific crisis of monetary integration, arguing that it might be more effectively achieved with inter-jurisdictional competition and suggesting how integrati

Auteur : Jim Byatt
Genre : Critique littéraire
Rethinking the Monstrous considers the remaindered other in contemporary British society and the representation of that other in British fiction since 1967. By examining a diverse range of texts that address an equally diverse range of identities, this book addresses the questions of what otherness means in contemporary society, how it manifests and manages itself, and how the fiction of the period addresses the social anomaly. This book's focus lies with novels that engage with those figures who have remained socially excluded, including the criminally transgressive and the culturally stigmatized, in an attempt to demonstrate a continuity of resistance to a diverse range of tabooed and monstrous identities.

As one of the most popular classical composers in the performance repertoire of professional and amateur orchestras and choirs across the world, Gustav Mahler continues to generate significant interest, and the global appetite for his music, and for discussions of it, remains large. Editor Jeremy Barham brings together leading and emerging scholars in the field to explore Mahler's relationship with music, media, and ideas past and present, addressing issues in structural analysis, performance, genres of stage, screen and literature, cultural movements, aesthetics, history/historiography and temporal experience. Rethinking Mahler counterbalances prevailing scholarly assumptions and preferences that configure Mahler as proto-modernist, with hitherto neglected consideration of his debt to, and his re-imagining of, the legacies of his own historical past.

32 Rethinking Modern European Intellectual History - Darrin M. McMahon & Samuel Moyn
Auteur : Darrin M. McMahon & Samuel Moyn
Genre : Europe
Modern European intellectual history is thriving as never before. It has recovered from an era in which other trends like social and cultural history threatened to marginalize it. But in spite of enjoying a contemporary renaissance, the field has lost touch with the tradition of debating why and how to study ideas and thus lacks both a well-articulated set of purposes and a range of arguments for exactly what it means to pursue those purposes. This volume revives that tradition. Recalling past attempts to showcase the diversity and differentiation of modern European intellectual history, this volume also documents how much has changed in recent decades. Some authors are much readier to defend a history of ideas practiced over the long term - once the defining sin of the field. Others go so far as to insist on how ideas are always open to reappropriation and reevaluation beyond their ori

33 Rethinking Knowledge - Carlo Cellucci
Auteur : Carlo Cellucci
Genre : Philosophie
This monograph addresses the question of the increasing irrelevance of philosophy, which has seen scientists as well as philosophers concluding that philosophy is dead and has dissolved into the sciences. It seeks to answer the question of whether or not philosophy can still be fruitful and what kind of philosophy can be such.

The author argues that from its very beginning philosophy has focused on knowledge and methods for acquiring knowledge. This view, however, has generally been abandoned in the last century with the belief that, unlike the sciences, philosophy makes no observations or experiments and requires only thought. Thus, in order for philosophy to once again be relevant, it needs to return to its roots and focus on knowledge as well as methods for acquiring knowledge.

Accordingly, this book deals with several questions about knowledge that are essentia

37 Rethinking Free Education: How Higher Education Shortchanges and Denies Access to the Less Privileged in Africa--the Case of Ghana (Report) - Michigan Academician
Auteur : Michigan Academician
Genre : Ouvrages de référence
ABSTRACT It is common knowledge that in modern technological societies the allocation of social position is increasingly dependent on higher education. Thus, educational attainments beyond secondary school are presumed to have given citizens the habits of thought, attitude, and special skills required by employers. This paper examines issues related to access to universities and colleges in Africa, especially Ghana, not only in terms of students' socio-economic background, but also other psycho-physiological and cultural diversities prevalent among the populace. The paper also explores other factors affecting the demand for versus the provision of higher education in Ghana. It further investigates the importance of national and community development and involvement in producing a more equitable, cohesive, and economically successful society.

39 Rethinking Regulatory Structure - Robert A. Schwartz, John Aidan Byrne & Gretchen Schnee
Auteur : Robert A. Schwartz, John Aidan Byrne & Gretchen Schnee
Genre : Management et direction
Three dominant forces worldwide are driving change today in our financial markets: competition, technology and regulation. But their collective impact in reshaping the markets, though they may be viewed individually as desirable or well-intentioned, is producing challenging results. They are difficult to predict, hard to control and not easy to understand.  Extreme market turbulence has underlined the key issues as much attention turns to the appropriate regulatory response. That is the backdrop for this thought-provoking book, emerging from  a Baruch College Conference on equity market structure in the aftermath of the global financial crisis, and featuring contributions from an acclaimed panel of international scholars, policymakers, regulators, and industry leaders.  The result presents emerging perspective and ideas that illuminate the dynamics of financial regulation

40 Rethinking Management - Neil Douglas & Terry Wykowski
Auteur : Neil Douglas & Terry Wykowski
Genre : Management et direction
This book challenges the roots and elements of the existing dominant paradigm of management, which can legitimize artless practices and result in dysfunction, and proposes an alternative based on a different understanding of human nature and social and economic life. This paradigm is designed to bring about the conception of organizations as wholes rather than assemblies of disembodied fragments, with managers as facilitators of the work of others and shapers of culture, with a clear sense of purpose and a moral compass. Such a paradigm would result in a practice of management that is more competent, more purposeful, and more ethical, based on a more accurate and complete comprehension of reality. 
This book sets forth a more optimistic understanding of human nature and collective life, and the hope that we can be and do better.  It is a major contribution to the field of

41 Rethinking Free Trade, Economic Integration and Human Rights in the Americas - María Belén Olmos Giupponi
Auteur : María Belén Olmos Giupponi
Genre : Droit
This monograph offers the first systematic overview of the protection of human rights in trade agreements in the Americas. Traditionally, trade agreements in the Americas were concerned with economic questions and paid little attention to human rights. However, in the wake of the 'new regionalism', which emerged at the end of the last century, more clauses addressing social issues such as labour rights and environmental standards were inserted in trade agreements. As economic integration increased, a framework for the protection of human rights evolved. This book argues that this framework allows for human rights protection on a transnational level, while constructing regional identities. Looking at the four key regional integration processes, namely the Caribbean Community, the Central American Integration System, the Andean Community of Nations and the Southern Common Market, and also

44 Rethinking Hell - Christopher M. Date & Gregory G. Stump
Auteur : Christopher M. Date & Gregory G. Stump
Genre : Religion et spiritualité
Most evangelical Christians believe that those people who are not saved before they die will be punished in hell forever. But is this what the Bible truly teaches? Do Christians need to rethink their understanding of hell? In the late twentieth century, a growing number of evangelical theologians, biblical scholars, and philosophers began to reject the traditional doctrine of eternal conscious torment in hell in favor of a minority theological perspective called conditional immortality. This view contends that the unsaved are resurrected to face divine judgment, just as Christians have always believed, but due to the fact that immortality is only given to those who are in Christ, the unsaved do not exist forever in hell. Instead, they face the punishment of the second death--an end to their conscious existence. This volume brings together excerpts from a variety of well-respected evangel

45 Rethinking Health Care Ethics - Stephen Scher & Kasia Kozlowska
Auteur : Stephen Scher & Kasia Kozlowska
Genre : Forme et santé
The goal of this open access book is to develop an approach to clinical health care ethics that is more accessible to, and usable by, health professionals than the now-dominant approaches that focus, for example, on the application of ethical principles. The book elaborates the view that health professionals have the emotional and intellectual resources to discuss and address ethical issues in clinical health care without needing to rely on the expertise of bioethicists. The early chapters review the history of bioethics and explain how academics from outside health care came to dominate the field of health care ethics, both in professional schools and in clinical health care. The middle chapters elaborate a series of concepts, drawn from philosophy and the social sciences, that set the stage for developing a framework that builds upon the individual moral experience of health profession

46 Rethinking the 21st Century - Doctor Amy Eckert & Laura Sjoberg
Auteur : Doctor Amy Eckert & Laura Sjoberg
Genre : Science politique
Rethinking the 21st Century brings much needed context and perspective to the security problems we face today. In recent years, the 'Bush Doctrine' - that the security threats we now face are entirely unprecedented - has echoed around the world. Global security and stability is now challenged not only by states and nuclear war, but by insurgency, disease, environmental degradation and military privatisation. Yet this creates a deep sense of disconnect in the way we perceive politics, and can be dangerously stark and ahistorical. The chapters here show that, far from being a clean break, the 'new' problems faced today might actually have 'old' solutions. What can Locke tell us about terrorists? What does Bentham have to say about sanctions? What are the ethics of outsourcing war to private companies? By looking back to decades and even centuries of ethical analysis and political t

48 Rethinking the French New Right - Tamir Bar-On
Auteur : Tamir Bar-On
Genre : Politique et actualité
This book focuses on the philosophy, politics and impact of the 'New Right' which originated in France and has since influenced activism, ideology and policy in a number of European countries.
This book explores the idea that revolutionaries do not necessarily need to come from the left, nor use arms in order to overturn liberal democracy. In the post-World War Two era, the extremists of the revolutionary right took three different paths: 1) parliamentary; 2) extra-parliamentary; and 3) metapolitical. The New Right (nouvelle droite – ND in France) took the metapolitical path, but that did not mean it abandoned its revolutionary desire to smash liberal democracy throughout Europe.

The book examines four interpretations of the New Right. These interpretations include the following: 1) The New Right as a fascist or quasi-fascist movement; 2) The New Ri

50 Breasts & the Beestings: Rethinking Breast-Feeding Practices, Maternity Rituals, & Maternal Attachment in Britain & Ireland. - Journal of International Women's Studies
Auteur : Journal of International Women's Studies
Genre : Sciences sociales
Abstract Viewing the wider collective rituals of childbirth as liminal is helpful in understanding the highly contested nature of many cultural practices. With English & Irish historical examples, this essay will argue that it has been to the advantage of women that they maintain a wide range of post-partum taboos and rituals. The themes of postpartum pollution and female power are developed in the context of wet-nursing and the withholding of colostrum. 'Churching', evident in the medieval period in Britain, continues to this very day, though in a simplified form. The colostrum taboo and ideas about the transmission of personality via breast milk are very ancient ideas, now entirely discredited in a British context, though to breastfeed another's baby is now socially taboo. Ideas about how the passions of the nurse could spoil her milk and cause diseases in the child were still w
