Philosophies of the mind and body Descartes, Ricouer and the metaparadigm of nursing

Martinez, Rudolf Cymorr Kirby P.; Mansaguiton, Lourlyn P.; Mercado, Myrna A.; Panes, Iril I.

This paper presents an analysis of Descartes and Ricouer’s philosophies which explores the nature and connection of the mind and body, in terms of their tenets, similarities, differences as well as their implication to the understanding of the metaparadigm in nursing. The first part of the paper gives a brief background on the philosophers and their philosophies focusing on Descartes' Dualism then comparing it to Ricouer's concept of “Selfhood”. Meanwhile, the second part of this paper deals with how these two philosophies affect our understanding of the metaparadigm in nursing (Fawcett, 1984) specifically, the concept of person, health, environment, and nursing.
