As this is not a book about philosophy discount atorlip-20 20mg fast delivery, descriptions of these movements are brief and simplified purchase 20 mg atorlip-20 visa, and readers are encouraged to pursue their ideas through further reading. The label ‘humanism’ has been variously used throughout human history, probably because its connotations of human welfare and dignity sound attractive. The Renaissance ‘humanistic’ movement included such influential philosophers as Erasmus and Sir Thomas More. In this text, however, ‘humanism’ is a specifically twentieth-century movement in philosophy led primarily by Abraham Maslow and Carl Rogers. The humanist movement, sometimes called the ‘third force’ (the first being psychoanalysis, the second behaviourism), was a reaction to behaviourism. Playle (1995) suggests that the art-versus-science debate within nursing is an extension of the humanistic-versus- mechanistic (i. Behaviourism The behaviourist theory was largely developed by John Broadus Watson (1878–1958) who, drawing on Pavlov’s famous animal experiments, stated that if each stimulus eliciting a specific response could be replaced by another (associated) stimulus, the desired response (behaviour) could still be achieved (‘conditioning’) (1998 [1924]). The behaviourist theory enabled social control and so became influential when society valued a single socially desirable behaviour. Thus behaviourism focuses on outward, Humanism 9 observable behaviours and for behaviourists, learning is a change in behaviour (Reilly 1980). Holloway and Penson (1987) have suggested that nurse education contains a ‘hidden curriculum’ controlling the behaviour of students and their socialisation into nursing culture. Through Gagne’s (1975, 1985) influence, many nurses have accepted and been acclimatised into a behaviouristic culture without always being made aware of its philosophical framework. Hendricks-Thomas and Patterson (1995) suggest that this behaviouristic philosophy has often been covert, masked under the guise of humanism. Thus using aspects from humanism, such as Maslow’s hierarchy of needs in Roper et al. Behaviourist theory draws largely on animal experiments; but humans do not always function like animals, especially where cognitive skills are concerned. Thus if internal values remain unaltered, desired behaviour exists only as long as external motivators remain (see Chapter 48). Options: explanation (cognitive) accepting extubation analgesia and sedation (control) restraint (e. Nevertheless, description remains deliberately behaviouristic, seeing the problem as behaviour (extubation). While extubation causes justifiable concern, behaviour is a symptom of more complex psychology. Until underlying problems are resolved, they remain problems; restraint only delays resolution. Intensive care nursing 10 No philosophy is ideal for all circumstances, and few are without some merit. In this scenario, behaviourism may justifiably ‘buy time’ until underlying pathophysiology is resolved or reduced, when extubation will no longer be a problem, and may be medically desirable. Behaviourial approaches can be useful, but they can also be harmful by dehumanising others to a list of task-orientated responses. Smith (1991) found that preregistration courses still emphasised task-orientated, rather than holistic, nursing. Nurses should analyse their values and beliefs, understanding the implications they have for practice, and selecting appropriate approaches to each context; this is, after all, an extension of individualising care. Humanism The humanist movement was concerned that behaviourism overemphasised animal instincts (and relied too heavily on animal experiments) in an attempt to control outward behaviour. Hence humanism emphasises inner values that distinguish people from animals and is a ‘person-centred’ philosophy; rather than emphasising society’s needs, humanism emphasises the needs of the individual self. Maslow’s Motivation and Personality (1987 [1954]) popularised the concept of ‘holism’ (the whole person). Humanists believe that people have a psychological need to (attempt to) achieve and to realise their maximum potential. Maslow (1987[1954]) described a hierarchy of needs, self-actualization being the highest of these; Roper et al. However, adopting primacy of the individual, inherent in humanism, conflicts with the objective decontextualisation of traditional scientific methodologies (Playle 1995), raising difficulties when undertaking humanist research, as exemplified by debate surrounding qualitative and quantitive nursing research. Emphasis on inner values led humanist educationalists to concentrate on developing and/or attempting to change inner values: values that are internalised will continue to influence actions after external motivators are removed. Thus, changes in nursing practice made in order to conform with the desires of another may not continue after that person has left, or even when absent (e. Concern for inner values and holistic approaches to care makes humanism compatible with many aspects of healthcare and nursing, although over-familiarity with terms can reduce them to clichés. Humanism has much to offer nurses in the process of analysing their philosophies of care and practice, but ideas should not be accepted uncritically. Lifelong learning Where the aim of behaviourist education was to achieve conformity, humanist education sought to promote individuality, and these differences are reflected in the training-versus- education debate.
