  • Asclepius or hippocrates differing interpretations of post compulsory initial teacher training mentoring
    Journal of Vocational Education & Training, 2011
    Co-Authors: Ewan Ingleby

    Abstract:

    This article discusses qualitative research findings on mentoring within PCET ITT (post‐compulsory education and training initial teacher training). The article complements the findings of Tedder and Lawy (2009) and Ingleby (2010). The article develops Downie and Randall’s consideration of the merits or otherwise of mirroring either ‘Asclepius’ or ‘Hippocrates’. Asclepius, the Greek god of healing is interpreted as being representative of ‘reflective practice’. Hippocrates, the Greek physician is regarded as personifying a rational audit‐driven culture within PCET ITT. The article argues that this latter characteristic has become part of PCET ITT mentoring. This article seeks to raise awareness of PCET ITT mentoring through relating primary research data to the work of Pierre Bourdieu and Michel Foucault. The research findings are based on questionnaire data that has been gathered from 80 PCET ITT students and their mentors alongside focus‐group data from eight mentors.

  • The Rod and the Serpent: History’s Ultimate Healing Symbol
    World journal of surgery, 2010
    Co-Authors: Stavros A. Antoniou, George A. Antoniou, Robert M. Learney, Frank A. Granderath, Athanasios I. Antoniou

    Abstract:

    The snake has served as a medical emblem for more than 2400 years, since its association with the ancient Greek god of medicine and healing, Asclepius, in the 4th century BC. Its symbolic background can be traced further back to the worship of gods of earth’s blossom in ancient Egypt and earth-related deities of the archaic period of Greek antiquity. It is featured entwined around a staff of knowledge and wisdom in most anaglyphs depicting Asclepius. The snake was impressed in the Old and the New Testament as well as in the Christian tradition as a symbol of sin, rejuvenation, death, resurrection, asthenia, and therapy. It is postulated that the double-snake motif was reintroduced by Renaissance philosophers as a medical emblem due to the symbolic connections of Hermes with deliverance and redemption. However, its use during the last two centuries seems to lack substantial historical background. The historical, mythological, and traditional retrospection of the snake’s symbolism validates its appropriateness in the health-care field.
