Uróboros Uróboros o uroboros. En la iconografía alquímica el color verde se asocia con el principio mientras que el rojo simboliza la consumación del objetivo del Magnum Opus (la Gran Obra). El uróboros (también ouroboros o uroboros) (del griego «ουροβóρος», "uróvoro", a su vez de oyrá, "cola", y borá, "alimento") es un símbolo que muestra a un animal serpentiforme que engulle su propia cola y que conforma, con su cuerpo, una forma circular. El uróboros simboliza el ciclo eterno de las cosas, también el esfuerzo eterno, la lucha eterna o bien el esfuerzo inútil, ya que el ciclo vuelve a comenzar a pesar de las acciones para impedirlo.

History and Theories of Spousal Abuse It has been estimated that one out of every six women in this country are victims of ongoing spousal abuse and that as many as one in three have experienced at least one physical assault during the course of their marriages (Straus, Gelles, & Steinmetz, 1980). These numbers may seem shockingly high at first, but they are really not too surprising when we stop and consider the fact that wife-beating is rooted in long-standing social traditions. It was both legal and respectable to beat one's wife until the late nineteenth century, and it has only been within the last two decades that battering has truly become viewed as unacceptable behavior. Throughout written history women have occupied a subordinate position to men. One theory of spousal abuse which takes its historical aspects into account is the social-learning approach.

Golem Prague reproduction of Golem In Jewish folklore, a golem (/ˈɡoʊləm/ GOH-ləm; Hebrew: גולם‎) is an animated anthropomorphic being, created entirely from inanimate matter. The word was used to mean an amorphous, unformed material (usually out of stone and clay) in Psalms and medieval writing.[1] The most famous golem narrative involves Judah Loew ben Bezalel, the late-16th-century rabbi of Prague. History[edit] Etymology[edit] The word golem occurs once in the Bible in Psalms 139:16, which uses the word גלמי (galmi; my golem),[2] meaning "my unshaped form",[3] connoting the unfinished human being before God’s eyes.[2] The Mishnah uses the term for an uncultivated person: "Seven characteristics are in an uncultivated person, and seven in a learned one," (שבעה דברים בגולם) (Pirkei Avot 5:6 in the Hebrew text; English translations vary). Earliest stories[edit] Joseph Delmedigo informs us, in 1625, that "many legends of this sort are current, particularly in Germany The Golem of Chelm[edit]

Human Rights Issues | Institute for Humane Education The content that follows was originally published on the Institute for Humane Education website at Although changes in the last hundred years (such as increased rights for women and minorities) have significantly advanced human rights across the globe, social justice is still a dream for hundreds of millions of people. For example, despite laws against it, slavery is actually on the rise, and genocide plagues several continents. Starvation and preventable disease – the result of corruption, lack of education, global climate change, diminished resources, human overpopulation, and more – claim millions of lives annually. Women and people who are minorities, homosexual, disabled, or facing poverty all over the globe still endure prejudices and obstacles that prevent them from leading free, safe, and healthy lives. Human rights are inextricably connected to environmental and cultural issues.

Singles/Never Married Persons - Social And Historical Context Of Singlehood - Gender, Stereotypes, Family, Definition, Women, and Marriage - JRank Articles Most cultures, past and present, have viewed adulthood as synonymous with being married and having children, and being single as a transitional stage that preceded these significant and expected adult roles. Different historical and cultural contexts have significantly affected the propensity, desire, and ability to marry, as well as opportunities and circumstances inside and outside of marriage. Yet historically, as now, a significant minority of the population remained single. How the never married have been viewed has also varied with time and place. During the 1970s, several social factors converged to create a new and more positive recognition of singlehood: more women in higher education, expanding career and job opportunities for women, and increased availability and acceptable of birth control. The never married in later life are subject to stereotypes that portray older adults in general, as well as those associated with individuals who have failed to marry (Rubinstein 1987).
