Relatively healthy older people, particularly those in the 60 to 70 age range, are likely to need services
similar to other adult health center populations. They may face challenges similar to their younger
counterparts; language barriers, limited health literacy, or cultural factors may impact health care access.
Yet for the older-old, these familiar challenges are compounded by additional barriers to optimal care and
quality of life. The disabled of any age often need supportive services to remain as healthy as possible and
in the community.
Christine Buci-Glucksmann's brilliant study of modern social theory
is concerned with the ways in which social realities can be represented,
and in particular with the possible means of representing
'modernity'. More specifically still, she wants to understand the
aesthetic systems of modernity. Representation concerns the multiple
ways in which realities can be encoded in a system of signs,
typically through what we regard as art, religion and language, that
is through symbolic orders. Aesthetics is narrowly defined as the
philosophy of art, or more broadly as a theory of beauty.
This book is an attempt to situate archaeology within the domain of contemporary
human affairs, and to forge a new methodology for coping with environmental
problems from an archaeological perspective. From this perspective, the papers
included in this volume highlight the aspects of the historical relationships
between people and climatic change that are potentially useful in coping with
current climatic fluctuations.
This article discusses how the flux of cultural productions between centre and periphery works,
taking as an example the field of music production in France and Brazil in the 1920s. The life
trajectories of Jean Cocteau, French poet and painter, and Heitor Villa-Lobos, a Brazilian composer,
are taken as the main reference points for the discussion.
