She asked him why he will not do this and his response was “We don’t want to give people the idea that our product is just for the handicapped.” She goes on to say “the advertisers masked a deeper and more anxious rationale: To depict disabled people in the ordinary activities of daily life is to admit that there is something ordinary about disability itself, that it may enter anybody’s life. If it is effaced completely, or at least isolated as a separate “problem,” so that it remains at a safe distance from other human issues, then the viewer won’t feel threatened by her or his own physical vulnerability films such as Duet for One, portrays disabilities as things that define the people that have them and that they aren’t normal.

In most ways I’m just like every other women my age, nationality, and socio-economical background.
Reflecting the distinction between 'objectivist' and 'subjectivist' approaches to science, the idiographic and the nomothetic represent two contrasting approaches to study methods. Idiographic approaches argue that the ultimate goal of science is to explain individual events; general laws and theories are useful insofar as they help us understand a particular event. By copntrast, nomothetic approaches argue that the ultimate goal is to uncover general truths that cover classes of occurrence. Here, individual instances are of interest primarily as guides in developing a broader understanding. Clinical medicine is largely an idiographic pursuit, and the doctor’s commitment is to the individual patient.
