3. Who is at risk of depression? One advantage of the more consistent application of diagnostic criteria for identifying individuals with a depressive disorder is that it allows national and international comparisons to be undertaken. Large-scale studies make it possible to estimate the overall prevalence of depression, and repeating the surveys allows detection of any changes in these rates over time. Comparisons can be made between the distribution of depression cases by country, culture, economic and social status, and other demographic features such as age, gender, marital status, etc. Differences between any of these subgroups can offer important insights into

4. Pain and civilization It has been well documented that, with the demise of Catholic practices of mortification, the moral virtue of pain was replaced, in 18th-century Europe, with the opposite notion that by no means was pain necessary for salvation, or even as an indication of moral virtuosity. On the contrary, pleasure emerged as the principle of the virtuous, with a turning away from pain as a personal and social evil. At the same time, the 18th century saw the dawn of the ‘age of sensibility’, in which heightened practices of civility and urbanity seemed to bring with them

2. Sex, seed, and sin in the medieval world By the early 500s AD, with the withdrawal of Rome’s legions and the rise of independent barbarian kingdoms, the peoples of Western Europe no longer felt the force of Roman government. The decline of the Roman Empire led to a dramatic drop in trade and the loss of vast quantities of ancient scholarship. Then, around 1000 AD, advances in farming, transport, and finance as well as an improving climate allowed crop yields to grow and commerce to flourish once again. A dramatic increase in wealth in turn sustained an upswing in

Conclusion All of you have lost your way. You’ve become muddled. Somehow you’ve forgotten what’s important. I don’t see a room full of sporting legends here, I see a room full of people looking for their next sponsorship deal, book deal, tv series … You lot need to get back to basics, remember who you are, what you are, what you stand for. The sight of a British comedian, albeit in the context of a sketch at a major awards ceremony, demanding that the nation’s leading sports men and women remember what they stand for, was telling.
