Love is a word that is different for many people. People interpret the word how they believe it best suits them. People often believe that love is best represented by showing it to someone important to them. On the other hand, there are people that know what they desire from other individuals, so they convert that desire into pity hopeless love that they can never obtain. A person can extend their love from oneself to others in many ways.
Ayn Rand and all people who believe egoism is the only virtue are inhumane. The word humane means to show compassion which is an act of altruism, that Ayn Rand and all her followers are firmly against. Altruism is when the wellbeing of a group is more important than the rights and needs of an individual. Egoism is when an individual’s right and needs are more important than the wellbeing of a group. All humans should be more altruistic than egoistic, because altruism allows people to be compassionate and to serve those in need.
His own book, titled “The Empathic Civilization”, details the belief that everyone can simply will themselves to care for humanity in its entirety. Asma holds Rafkin’s view over Singer’s due to the fact that it appeals to the heart rather than the head, but he still finds fault in Rifkin’s thinking. Rifkin’s idea of caring for all of humanity implies that humanity’s capacity to empathize and care is limitless. Our author does not believe this to be true. He also does not subscribe to Rifkin’s idea that individuals should treat all of humanity like extended family.
Existential therapy seeks to help people who are facing problems with issues relating to these and it provides a phenomenological approach during therapy sessions. Existential therapy lives by the belief that every individual has the freedom to choose and is responsible for their choices in life (Corey, 2009). It also encourages clients to be aware that they have the ability to construct their lives, find the purpose of living, deal with anxieties and death (Corey, 2009). Existential therapy is more of an idea rather than an independent school of psychology with certain abided rules in therapy such as psychoanalysis or behaviorism. Some key people that contributed to existential therapy are Victor Frankl and Rollo May.
To Schopenhauer, happiness cannot be understood if the elements of its ' absence are not understood. Many comprehend life to be a balancing act, that these elements equalize the fulfillment of want and desire with suffering and misfortune. The same individuals would then assume that life because it carries these harmonizing features, is positively good. Because many believe life is presented as "good", suffering bestows itself as an exception or aberration to the general rule of life whereas, Schopenhauer believes it to be the other way around. He believes that life is defined by pain, drudgery, calamity, desire and that the moments of pleasure and joy are the exception to life.
For many therapists, being yourself in a therapeutic session might be difficult to achieve because of external influences, professionalism and safety reasons, but for me it is a matter of trust. Hierarchically first, by being human and then a mental health professional, you set the basis for a trustful and meaningful conversation where the client can feel safe and discuss progressively problems that “nobody wants to hear”. I truly believe, that there are many things in life that you can achieve without pre-established techniques, one of these may be to achieve self-growth conditions through Person Centered Therapy. Humanistic approach for me is a way of life and a way of
Humankind is the only kind judged on morality, therefore, rights must be attributed to all of humankind. It doesn’t make sense to attribute rights to individuals. No rational person would consider it fair to give some individuals of the same kind rights, and then deny those rights to others. Simply put, rights must be given on the basis of what kind something is, not an individual basis. This also leads to the widely accepted concept of natural rights.
The Transcendentalists believed that everyone was their own person and that conforming to others ruined what it meant to be human. In “Self-Reliance”, Ralph Waldo Emerson stated that “Whoso be a man, must be a nonconformist”(Emerson 370). This quote means that the Transcendentalists believed so much in individualism, that they went so far as to say that one is not a man if they conform to society. Another example of individualism is in “Self-Reliance” when Emerson said that to be great one must not follow the societal norms, but instead go their own way. Someone may be misunderstood in life but in the future they could be looked upon as a hero(Emerson 372).
By building a strong foundation of one’s faith they are capable of assisting others as well as serving God. Serving as well as pleasing God grants one God’s favor. Possessing God’s favor will benefit one’s self in immeasurable and unexpected variations. There is a required balance with individualism. One must always attempt to improve one’s self and this is possible via helping others.
The only argument for relativists is their tolerance for everyone, but even this is a weak argument. The raising generation, is known for toleration, it is a worldview. Toleration can be good, we can understand and see other cultures, but if we are to tolerant then we lose our worldview and what we believe because we adapt other cultures. This is the reason people believe culture relativism, every culture is different and we don 't always have believe what other cultures
There is a reason for our world to have suffering since it is built into the structure of the world. That reason, Hick argues, is for “soul-making”, or character building (129). Without having some suffering, then there would be no characters, such as courage. The higher morality of God relates back to that because He has a legitimacy for that suffering. Here, I agree with Hick.
