Iridology: Essay Define and describe the modality Give a brief history of the modality Briefly describe the philosophy underlying the modality How is the modality used in the 21st century How popular is it in the world and in Australia As defined by Jackson (1993, p 9), “Iridology is the science of analysing the iris, in order to determine the condition of the organs and tissues of the body”. Iris analysis has been used for thousands of years in a variety of ways and is still widely used in many western countries, particularly Europe. This essay will explore Iridology’s foundations, history and philosophy as well as explore the use of iridology within today’s complementary and alternative medicine. The basis of Iridology is not to cure specific illnesses, but rather to be used as a preventative tool for overall health. According to Jensen (1989, p. ) “the iris of the eye can show acute, sub-acute, chronic, and destructive stages in the body”.
Her background was interdisciplinary and included a thorough grounding in linguistics, ethnology, and the history of religions, which was unusual for an archaeologist. In 1949, she moved to the United States, where she would remain until her death four decades later. With her extensive knowledge of European languages, Marija Gimbutas was employed by Harvard University in 1950. She was assigned the task of conducting research and writing texts regarding European prehistory. Gimbutas was able to read and translate the archaeological reports from Eastern Europe, which opened the American to new ideas on archeology.
Carbon-14 Dating: an Invaluable Yardstick in the Chronology of Humans Archeologists use many methods to analyze data from the past. One scientific tool they use is to analyze the radioactive decay of chemical elements found in plant and animal remains, pottery, and even in rocks. Radiocarbon dating, also known as carbon-14 dating, has been one of the most important radioisotope dating methods used. This scientific tool, which was first developed by Willard F. Libby in the late 1940s, has significantly improved the accuracy of assigning dates to past events and artifacts as far back as 70,000 years. It is helping archaeologists, geologists, and anthropologists reconstruct the world’s history by filling in some of the many blank dates in the chronology of the history of our human world and by substantiating and revising other dates.
He had always been interested in geophysics, developing fields of meteorology, and climatology. “While at Marburg, in the autumn of 1911, Wegener was browsing in the university library when he came across a scientific paper that listed fossils of identical plants and animals found on opposite sides of the Atlantic (UCMP, 2011)”. This information sparked the interest of Wegener and he started looking and finding more case of organisms that had been separated by the ocean. He realized that South America and Africa seemed to fit together. It had the appearance that if the edges of the continental shelves were closer they would match as if they were a puzzle.
Studies have proven that over 90% of today’s history has been discovered through the study of archaeology. Archaeologist pride themselves on doing extensive research to satisfy the mission of conquering the mystery of prehistoric cultures as many significant developments in human history occurred during prehistory, including the evolution of humanity during the Palaeolithic period also known as the old stone age. There are a substantial amount of theories one has to determine before practicing the act of Archaeology; for one, cultural-history archaeology, which presents the idea of explaining why cultures changed and adapted to particular circumstances rather than just drawing attention to the fact that they did change. While the other theory has a lot to do with the study of past societies with direct continuing links to the existing ones.
