Author: Irina Paperno
Brand: Brand: Cornell Univ Pr

"Inspired by the interpretive dilemma of suicide in nineteenth-century Russia, Paperno offers a superb reading of contemporary responses, across genres and philosophical divides. A fascinating view of the symbolic recesses of a culture in transition."--Laura Engelstein, author of The Keys to Happiness: Sex and the Search for Modernity in Fin-de-Sicle Russia

In the popular and scientific imagination, suicide has always been an enigmatic act that defies, and yet demands, explanation. Throughout the centuries, philosophers and writers, journalists and scientists have attempted to endow this act with meaning. In the nineteenth century, and especially in Russia, suicide became the focus for discussion of such issues as the immortality of the soul, free will and determinism, the physical and the spiritual, the individual and the social. Analyzing a variety of sources--medical reports, social treatises, legal codes, newspaper articles, fiction, private documents left by suicides--Irina Paperno describes the search for the meaning of suicide. Paperno focuses on Russia of the 1860s-1880s, when suicide was at the center of public attention.

Suicide: Closing the Exits

Suicide: Closing the Exits Lowest used price: $42.99
List price: $99.00
Author: Ronald V. Clarke

This book reports a program of research concerned with the possibility of as guns, drugs, preventing suicide by restricting access to lethal agents, such and carbon monoxide. To many people, it may seem implausible that deeply unhappy people could be prevented from killing themselves by "closing the exits, " but the suggestion is by no means a new one and has been current in the journals for some time. This book is the first major exposition of the idea, however, with the evidence collected in one place and an examination of the implications for understanding the suicidal person and for preventing suicide. We hope to convince public health officials that, although the idea is largely disregarded at present, restricting access to lethal agents should take its place as a major preventive strategy along with the psychiatric treatment of depressed and suicidal individuals and the establishment of suicide pre­ in communities to counsel those who are suicidal or in crisis. vention centers We came to this position by two different routes. R. c. 's interest derived from a concern with the role of opportunity in crime. This originated in his doctoral research dealing, not with suicide, but with another form of escape-absconding from training schools for young offenders. He found that the variance in absconding was explained more by the opportunities to abscond presented by the school's environment and regime than by the offender's history or personality.

Suicide stems in large part from the human condition and, as such, is not a problem that can be solved. Former draconian and punitive laws against it have in the main been eliminated, but it remains a stigma and a heartache. In the twentieth century, suicide has become a problem for sociologists, psychiatrists, and social policymakers to «solve.» In past centuries, however, suicide was a subject most fit for philosophers, theologians, writers, and, as the nineteenth century progressed, physicians. What establishes itself clearly throughout is that social attitudes and public policies toward suicide, as toward other important human issues, mirror the needs and peculiar circumstances of a culture. Yet sanctions against suicide, except in highly prescribed instances, transcend cultural specificity. To the question when, if ever, is suicide permissible, Western peoples and institutions, both secular and religious, reply, never. Duty to others, to God, to society, or to all of these, virtually always overrides personal desire or reasons to commit suicide.
