If an administrator supports Kantian deontology, he or she could use the categorical imperative to state that respecting and allowing one to pursue spiritual growth is a moral and ethical duty (Morrison & Furlong, 2014). Healthcare leaders and administrators have an ethical duty to provide environments in which both workers and patients can examine their spiritual desires and needs. The practical
According to the articles, “What Leads to Success in Life,” by Jocelyn K. Glei, and “The Moral Bucket List,” by David Brooks, a person must possess certain qualities in order to achieve ‘success’ in his life. While Glei emphasizes that self-control, passion, and perseverance are the necessary qualities needed to accomplish a person’s dreams, Brook illustrates that the keys to a successful life are the virtues that inspire the inner characters of a person. The article that resembled my outlook on success was “The Moral Bucket List” because the lessons that Brooks expounds on follow closely with the teachings of my religion as well as how they produce life-changing decisions. As a Mormon, or Latter-day Saint (LDS), I’ve been taught that the virtues that Christ possessed and exhibited during his lifetime are the same virtues that a person should live by and the attributes listed in the ‘bucket list’ are similar in nature, albeit if not the
This could be seen in Roman art and architecture, and literature linking Rome to Greece. Religion was even shared, they had the same gods with different names. Rome studied many of the Greek philosophers and shred their ideals. Through the four main points, Greek culture rolled into Roman society and became part of Roman culture as
Due to all of Ben’s efforts, Christopher Baldwin, author of “Franklin’s Classical American Statesmanship,” argues that “[Ben] Franklin is to be our role model” because he believes “that the key to the successful pursuit of happiness and the good life is virtue” which promotes a righteous lifestyle for those who choose to follow him (Baldwin 69). He knew that he wasn’t a perfect man so Ben made a plan to change his actions and become a more pure citizen to accomplish his
Introduction Morality has long been used by human being as a basis for their actions. Believers of God think that doing good deeds is being moral and thus these actions will save them from their sins. They believe that following God’s will, that is the 10 commandments and in the new commandments stated in the New Testament is the written and visible basis for these actions found in the Holy Bible. . Others believe that being moral is not just following the 10 commandments.
The Jaina ethical principles and philosophical foundations evolved during the Vedic period and it has been giving stimulus to Jain’s moral development, view of the world, ecology, and all spheres of their lives. Their ethical principles are strongly related to the way of liberation, where the ultimate goal is not salvation given by a divine god, but liberation, or “moksha,” achieved by one’s own individual efforts or moral excellence with their religious teachings as the basis and practices. 1) An attempt was made to determine how ethical principles related to the way of liberation consolidate the individual’s ethical capacity. The research substantiates correlation between Jaina ethical principles and Jain’s moral development using the moral developmental indices such as Personal interest score, Maintain norms score, Postconventional score (P score), and N2 score. 2) To substantiate the fact that Jaina code of conducts influence moral development a comparative study of ethical quotients of people of different faiths was done using a standard moral
A true Christian perspective is one were the individual takes great pride in being self-sufficient. We as Christians should live our lives in a way that prepares and guides ourselves to being self-sufficient. We should stay away from sins that burden or distract us from promoting a stable and functioning life style. Drugs and alcohol, and lust cause the greatest damage to our social and economic stability. We need to take great pride in our work and being honest, hardworking, and wanting to set a good example.
To live and act in accordance with our nature is to be virtuous. Virtue is a trait that is referring to moral excellence. Runar Thorsteinsson, a Professor at the University of Iceland, stated that, “The opinion that human beings by nature are good was a traditional Stoic doctrine. It did not mean that every human being, as it were, automatically possessed virtue itself, but rather that every human being possessed a natural disposition to virtue.” This did not mean that they believed that every human being would possess virtue, but that some part of every human being naturally had a part of virtue inside of them. Stoics believed that human beings by nature had some good inside of them.
As the slogan “Reverence For Life” put forward by Albert Schweitzer whose main concept lies in the observational development around us. And he calls for human should revere life not only human life all the life of nature. George’s opinion meets the concept of “Reverence for Life” that human should respect the diversity of all life. It is the ethics that cover the real depth and width toward life. According to the text, Albee is more in favor of George’s thought rather than Nick’s thought of putting science and technology supremacy.
The Hindu Temple papers I read were deeply informative with regards to the Hindu faith. Hindus are primarily concerned with living a good life in order to get closer to Brahman, an all-inclusive, all-knowing being that pervades every aspect of the world. Their faith follows specifically four full tenets of ethical living. These tenets are austerity, purity, compassion, and truthfulness. For Hindus, successful application of these beliefs helps the soul receive positive karma which will in turn help the soul get further in their next life through the process of reincarnation.
