What Is Philosophy?

During this stimulating booklet, six major philosophers-Karl-Otto Apel, Robert Brandom, Karsten Harries, Martha Nussbaum, Barry Stroud, and Allen Wood-consider the character of philosophy. even though every one of them has a special point of view, all of them appear to agree that philosophy seeks to discover hidden assumptions and ideas with a view to reveal them to serious scrutiny.

Example text

While much of this chapter discussed the mechanisms underlying graft integration into a host, by the time when human grafting experiments are pursued for neurological disorders, these principles will not be known in human subjects although they presumably will have been developed in animal models. Most medications helpful in treating seizures, head injuries, and strokes now have known bases from laboratory studies but this was not true at their market introduction. Thus, there is no need to have actual mechanistic understanding for a treatment to go forward and become FDA approved.

Fortunately, ongoing advances in neurobiology coupled with initiatives to facilitate the translation of this research into medical therapy promise to change this paradigm from palliation to cure. Broadly speaking, current approaches to the treatment of SCI fall into one of four categories: (1) the prevention of secondary injury and delayed demyelination or axon loss (neuroprotection), (2) the repair or replacement of interrupted neural circuitry (spinal cord repair), (3) the use of aggressive rehabilitation techniques to optimize recovery through residual spinal cord plasticity (rehabilitation), and (4) the augmentation of function through prostheses (prosthetics).
