Lobotomy


Kennedy
Kennedy sever one of more nerve tracts, a technique formerly used to treat certain mental disorders but now rarely performed

Considered as psychologically unstable, she underwent a prefrontal lobotomy at age 23, which left her permanently incapacitated.


Placid and easygoing as a child and teenager, the maturing Kennedy became increasingly assertive in her personality. She was reportedly subject to violent mood swings. Some observers have since attributed this behavior to her difficulties in keeping up with siblings who were expected to perform to high standards, as well as the hormonal surges associated with puberty. In any case, the family had difficulty dealing with the often-stormy Rosemary, who had begun to sneak out at night from the convent where she was educated and cared for.[10]


In 1941, when Rosemary was 23, doctors told her father that a new neurosurgical procedure, lobotomy, would help calm her mood swings and sometimes-violent outbursts.[11] Joseph P. Kennedy decided that Rosemary should have the lobotomy performed, but did not inform Rose until afterwards. At the time, relatively few lobotomies had been performed; James W. Watts, who carried out the procedure with Walter Freeman, described what happened:


"We went through the top of the head, I think she was awake. She had a mild tranquilizer. I made a surgical incision in the brain through the skull. It was near the front. It was on both sides. We just made a small incision, no more than an inch." The instrument Dr. Watts used looked like a butter knife. He swung it up and down to cut brain tissue. "We put an instrument inside," he said. As Dr. Watts cut, Dr. Freeman put questions to Rosemary. For example, he asked her to recite the Lord's Prayer or sing "God Bless America" or count backwards. ... "We made an estimate on how far to cut based on how she responded." ... When she began to become incoherent, they stopped.

Sanity vs insanity1

In Ken Kesey’s novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Kesey discusses sanity vs. insanity. Through this novel, Kesey reveals that although McMurphy believes he should not be in the ward, he does not fight the sentencing because the court would not believe him. “… I’m a psychopath. And do you think I’m gonna argue with the court? Shoo, you can bet your bottom dollar I don’t. If it gets me outta those damn pea fields I’ll be whatever their little heart desires, be it psychopath or mad dog or werewolf…” (18). As explained in this quote, McMurphy only accepted his sentence to the ward because he did not want to have to do harsh labor. He believes that as long as he does not have to do difficult labor, he is more than willing to accept staying in the ward with the label as a psychopath.

Think carefully about the issue presented in the following passage and the assignment below.

We must seriously question the idea of majority rule. The majority grinned and jeered when Columbus said the world was round. The majority threw him into a dungeon for his discoveries. Where is the logic in the notion that the opinion held by a majority of people should have the power to influence our decisions?
