2.12.1 Integration

The impetus for this is partly about providing health care that gives patient satisfaction, and also stemming the tide of the spiralling costs of hi-tech, orthodox medicine and medical litigation. Stacey (1988) points out that, when the state funds parts of the nati

2.2.1 Prefixes and suffixes

Prefixes and suffixes can offer clues to the meaning of words. Prefixes come before the main part of the word:

  • In ‘antenatal’, ‘ante’ is a prefix meaning ‘before’ and the whole word means ‘before birth’.

Suffixes are added to the end of the word:

  • -ive, -ing, -ness and -ion are all suffixes and are used to form words such as active, willing, willingness and action.

4.5 David Hume

This unit examines David Hume's reasons for being complacent in the face of death, as these are laid out in his suppressed essay of 1755, ‘Of the immortality of the soul’. More generally, they examine some of the shifts in attitude concerning death and religious belief which were taking place in Europe at the end of the eighteenth century, through examination of this and other short essays.
