  • Risk has become one of the main topics in fields as diverse as engineering, medicine, and economics, and it is also studied by social scientists, psychologists, and legal scholars. But the topic of risk also leads to more fundamental questions such as:What is risk?What can decision theory contribute to the analysis of risk? What does the human perception of risk mean for society? How should we judge whether a risk is morally acceptable or not? Over the last couple of decades, questions like these have attracted interest from philosophers and other scholars into risk theory.

  • Where the two terms differ is in the imposition by organisations of courteous or forced ritual behaviour on employees – a modern phenomenon. Insincerity is concealed, leading to the whimsical even offensive notion that we are all air hostesses now. There are moral implications here too. Sprezzatura could be aligned to the moral theories of hedonism and egoism – where the focus is on the individual who decides to pursue a working life of fulfilment based on self interest, by the appearance of relaxed competence that may or may not be borne out by actual effectiveness at work....

  • A major difference between this concept and Kornai’s notion of soft budget constraints lies in the ex-ante attitude of creditors. While creditors (in particular, the state) explicitly bail out unprofitable firms (this information is available ex-ante), the adverse selection in the second case is due to imperfect information: if the relevant information had been available to the creditors ex-ante, they would have declined to finance the project altogether (Schaffer (1998)).

  • This piece of art was created by the Finn Raimo Veranen and is entitled Ready to Fly. It depicts 56 children dancing or jumping, but the shadows cast by the light give the impression of many more. Raimo Veranen has almost made the motif of children his own trademark over the years. “In the early 1980s, my wife was expecting a baby and was scanned. On the screen, we saw a tiny figure making rapid, jerky movements. I remember that very clearly and it has become a source of inspiration in my work,” he says. The children in the pie- ce are happy, open and ready to jump into...

We, therefore, designed a literature review to evaluate the existing evidence about reflection and reflective practice and their utility in health professional education.
