(Weber, 1958). Protestantism offers the concept of a worldly “calling” and also gives worldly activity a religious character. This implies to pursue profit but does not explain the need to. Weber argues that the spirit of modern capitalism views profit as an end in itself and pursuing profit as being noble and pure. He sees Calvinism as being the main source in explaining his
The author draws a parallel with Catholic worldview. The book explains that a lifestyle that promotes Catholicism, could be the basis of capitalism. Lifestyle Catholics could not create capitalism, which is distributed throughout the western world. Another thing Protestantism, which promoted the new view of money and labor, pay and profit. Protestants were able to create ethical rules that gave impetus to the development of modern capitalism.
Calvin was influenced by humanists. The preaching idea of Calvin is that the preaching becomes revelation when if God agrees to add to it the Holy Spirit. The Spirit does not speak anything that has not already been said in the scripture. Preaching can be called as the Word of God only by the preaching expounds and interpret the Bible. He sensed very low level for human activity in preaching.
Calvinism adopted the Catholic Church’s opinions regarding the dignity of human labor. The Catechism of the Catholic Church states, “man collaborates in a certain fashion with the Son of God in his redemptive work. He shows himself to be a disciple of Christ by carrying the cross, daily, in the work he is called to accomplish. Work can be a means of sanctification and a way of animating earthly realities with the Spirit of Christ.” (CCC 2427) An important doctrine of Calvinism, was that of predestination, stating that whether one would go to heaven or hell was already decided. The concept of predestination led to a feeling of insecurity among the people, since there was no way to ensure eternal salvation, but rather would find out at death.
Institutions such as Universities and private business all follows the societal structure of a bureaucratic society. Simple organization within our university all function under the system of bureaucracy; whenever the students feels stifled or mistreated they would bring their issues or concerns to the Student Government who in turn consult the faculty who figure out ways to help solve the problem. By following the order of hierarchy they were able to get the issues to the ones who are responsible for fixing the problems. All these institutions are following what Weber view as characteristics of a modern society. What is different in our society to that proposed by Weber is the rigidity and the impersonal nature of the bureaucracy.
Thus, the hypothesis that there will be a significant relationship between Work Craving and Job Satisfaction was rejected. Burke (2004) found that work addicts, both male and female, reported less satisfaction with their jobs and higher levels of psychological distress. Workaholics work hard not because they like their jobs but because of a compulsive inner drive. This can be seen in the greater correlation that Work Engagement has with Job Satisfaction than Work Craving even though both are not significant. Whereas workaholics are motivated by an obsessive inner drive they cannot resist, engaged employees are intrinsically motivated, have a sense of energetic and effective connection with their work activities, and view themselves as able to deal well with the demands of their jobs.
Calvinism was founded by John Calvin, a French humanist, who did most of his work in Geneva, Switzerland. John Calvin began the reformation of the church in 1543 when he wanted to turn Geneva into a Christian state. Lutheranism and Calvinism shared some of the same thoughts. One of the most commonly seen similarity was their views on salvation. Both believed that God chose certain people to be saved, and anyone not chosen would be damned to hell.
Darwinists supported a laissez faire political and economic system. People believe that the concept of social Darwinism clarifies the philosophy of racism, and imperialism. Racism is the hatred of one person by another or the belief that another person is less than human because of skin color, language, customs, place of birth or any fact that supposedly reveals the basic nature of that person. Racism is also a belief that a particular race is superior or inferior to
