ShinHyung Seong Otherness and Ethics

Otherness and Ethics demonstrates how Levinas and Confucius (Kongzi) develop their ideas of otherness and ethics. Most of all, the meaning of inter-subjectivity is examined in order to employ this point as this book delves into the phenomenon of face in Levinas and the significance of ren (human-relatedness) in Confucius (Kongzi). In addition, this book searches their different notions of humanity and relatedness to have a creative discourse for developing the concept of ethics of otherness as it concentrates on the formulation of ethical narratives in Levinas and Confucius (Kongzi). Thus, this book can open a possibility of building of ethics of otherness through reviewing ethical foundations of Levinas and Confucius (Kongzi) and discussing the meaning of otherness.""At a time when our world struggles with cultural and personal differences, Seong offers a brilliant read of Levinas and Kongzi to give insight into the ethics of otherness. Especially engaging is his analysis of ren--'love to others through the awareness of otherness'--that is critical to Confucian morality in conversation with Levinas' conception of response-ability. Readers will find this intricate work important to the fields of philosophy, ethics, and theology. Seong's concise critique to Euro-American-centered cross-cultural approaches is a needed addition to ethical discourse.""--Pamela Lightsey, Vice President of Meadville Lombard Theological School, ChicagoShinHyung Seong ...

Alina Polyakova The Dark Side of European Integration. Social Foundations and Cultural Determinants of the Rise of Radical Right Movements in Contemporary Europe

Across Europe, radical right-wing parties are winning increasing electoral support. The Dark Side of European Integration argues that this rising nationalism and the mobilization of the radical right are the consequences of European economic integration. The European economic project has produced a cultural backlash in the form of nationalist radical right ideologies. This assessment relies on a detailed analysis of the electoral rise of radical right parties in Western and Eastern Europe. Contrary to popular belief, economic performance and immigration rates are not the only factors that determine the far right's success. There are other political and social factors that explain why in post-socialist Eastern European countries such parties had historically been weaker than their potential, which they have now started to fulfill increasingly. Using in-depth interviews with radical right activists in Ukraine, Alina Polyakova also explores how radical right mobilization works on the ground through social networks, allowing new insights into how social movements and political parties interact.

Francis Adu-Febiri, Everett Ofori Succeeding from the Margins of Canadian Society. A Strategic Resource for New Immigrants, Refugees and International Students

It is possible to overcome barriers to minority success in Canada. The stance of this book is that new immigrants, refugees and international students do not have to settle for underachievement despite the cultural and structural disadvantages they face in Canada. The fact is, the unequal social structure of Canada has some cracks, and many minorities have used strategic resources to open up these cracks and achieved tremendous upward social mobility in Canadian society from the margins. These documented minority successes in Canada in the face of systemic marginalization provide lessons and hope for new immigrants, refugees and international students.The economic, political, social and cultural problems that minorities encounter in Canadian institutions, organizations, communities and from individuals overwhelm and break many of them. However, some minorities break records in the face of the frustrations they encounter. What accounts for the success of the latter group of immigrants, refugees and international students in Canada? Individual efforts and personal ambitions are not enough to explain these success stories. This book highlights strategies and support systems that facilitate minority strategic connections with Canadian mainstream institutions, organizations and individuals to win from the margins of society.Although the book does not get into the theories of inequality, equity and diversity, it does acknowledge the structural and cultural barriers to minority succ...

Jann Guzikiewitz What cultural challenges relating to leadership do organisations face when doing business in foreign countries.

Master's Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,7, Buckinghamshire New University, language: English, abstract: The aim of this study is to identify and evaluate the cultural challenges within organisational leadership imposed by their internationalisation activities. This dissertation aims to create an understanding for the relevance of cultural differences within the internationalisation process. It does so by analysing the cultural differences between the German and Swedish construction supply industries. The research question is; what are the cultural challenges related to leadership that organisations face when doing business in foreign countries. I discuss this question based on the analysis of the contemporary academic literature, whereby Hofstede's cultural model is considered. Semi-structured expert interviews were used to analyse the current cultural situation in both industries as well as to evaluate the findings of the theory. In conclusion, the analysis of the German and Swedish construction supply industries showed a significant difference between the contemporary literature and the primary findings of this thesis. Certain aspects of the cultural dimensions of both industries did not correspond to the literature's view of each country's culture. Although both industries are similar they show differences, which are recognised within the approach to leadership. Cultural chan...

Peter Redpath The Moral Psychology of St. Thomas Aquinas. An Introduction to Ragamuffin Ethics

Through a radical reinterpretation of classical philosophy as an organizational psychology, The Moral Psychology of St. Thomas: An Introduction to Ragamuffin Ethics just as radically reinterprets St. Thomas Aquinas’s moral teaching to be a behavioristic psychology chiefly designed to synthesize right reason and right pleasure to help a person excel at living life as a whole. In the process of so doing, this work demonstrates how the skill of prudential living is a necessary condition for becoming a grand master of leadership in any and every profession.

Mikko Valtonen Radical Democratic Education

The relationship between democracy and education is always one of the core questions when it comes to the existence, continuity, and development of a democratic society. In the spirit of the original sense of philosophy, this is, the loving of wisdom, Mikko Valtonen pursues in this book a perspective of a wise educator and asks through insightful philosophical analysis what could be the nature of the most wise and best education imaginable. The book consists of seven key dimensions of radical democratic education which include 1) democracy as a radical and progressive form of living, 2) liberating and therapeutic view on education, 3) melioristic worldview, 4) the ideal of self-critical reason, 5) hope as a fundamental attitude in education, 6) the ideal of peace and non-violence, and 7) synthesis of theory and practice. In the spirit of radical democracy theory, Valtonen defends the extension and radical deepening of democracy in all educational practices and understands democracy broadly as an active, communal, and value-based form of living deeply defining our whole human existence instead of being a mere quality of a political system.

As ecological issues increase and concern worldwide is mounting about the changing nature of work and cultural life, the field of adult education must respond. Adult education holds much potential for its ability to highlight cultural knowledge, promote change, and maximize the capacity of adults to work together in strengthening mutually supportive communities that contribute to a sustainable future. It is imperative that we (re)educate adults about productive but sustainable work and stronger local community living within an understanding of the relational being and the interdependency of all things. This edited collection explores the cultural roots of the ecological/cultural crisis and its relationship to adult education. The development of sound practices and new cultural understandings among adults are emphasized. Certainly, there exists evidence of small grassroots work that builds hope and skills for the coming of a new age of sustainable and just life. This volume discusses the: Connections between sustainability, environmental and ecojustice education, Forms of radical sustainability adult education, Established cultural institutions as potential agents of change, Principles of ecojustice education, and Implementation of these principles in formal and community education settings. This is the 153rd volume of the Jossey Bass series New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education. Noted for its depth of coverage, it explores issues of common interest to instructors, administrators, counselors, and policymakers in a broad range of education settings, such as colleges and universities, extension programs, businesses, libraries, and museums.

Volume 3—The ‘Clothing’ of Effective Policing: Cultural Competency, Spirituality and Ethics continues my discussion about the humanity of policing. For this writing, I give attention to the spiritual, intellectual, and emotional dimensions of humankind.I use clothing metaphorically to describe more than something to cover body parts. Clothing refers to preparation of the heart, soul, and mind for tasks associated with policing. I came up with the idea while studying scripture, substituting the word clothing for armor, both words understood to refer to protecting the body and mind-set. In the Bible, clothing and colors were symbolic.

Aristotle's Ethics and Politics are the main sources of philosophy that he was known for. In Ethics he argued for the view that virtues are what make up the ethical behaviour of any person. In order to be a "good person" ethics must be present in the form of virtues. Meanwhile in Politics, he argues that the city or state must come before family which comes before the individual. The idea that the need s of the many outweighs the needs of the few had its roots in Aristotle's philosophy of politics.

David I. Smith, Pennylyn Dykstra-Pruim Christians and Cultural Difference

Encountering cultural differences in the classroom, in the workplace, in the church, and in the public square is an everyday part of contemporary life. The chances that we will live our lives interacting only with those who share our cultural identity and ways of thinking are shrinking. Understanding culture and how cultural difference affects how we understand one another and live well together is no longer just for travelers. It has become a basic life skill.Past Christian ways of thinking about cultural difference as most important for missions to far away places do not harmonize with today's realities. This book offers a brief, critical overview of how Christians have been rethinking their relationship to cultural difference. Creation and fall, the image of God, the body/temple that is the church, neighbor ethics, the trinity, the incarnation and cross of Christ, and the call to welcome strangers – each of these offers distinct challenges to think in Christian ways about how we deal with differences.Exploring the strengths and weaknesses of various approaches, this book provides a concise guide to current Christian discussions of otherness. It points to rich ways in which Christians can responsibly and graciously embrace cultural difference.

Transforming Community. Stories of Connection Through the Lens of Relational-Cultural Theory

Understanding and putting Relational-Cultural theory into practiceIn the last decade, modern neuroscience has validated almost all of the early tenets of Relational-Cultural theory (RCT): relational development through the life span, the neuroscience of connection, and social justice. The American Psychological Association invited RCT into its “Psychotherapy monographs series”, noting it was one of the ten most important psychological theories in North America.This book addresses many of RCT’s newest applications. It is a compilation of writings by people who presented at and attended the conference Transforming Community: The Radical Reality of Relationships co-sponsored by The College of St. Scholastica (CSS), the Wellesley Centers for Women, and the Jean Baker Miller Training Institute at Wellesley College held from June 9-12, 2016 in Duluth, Minnesota on the campus of CSS.The four main sections of the book - Neuroscience and Health Care, Education, Environment, and Social Justice are reflective of the discussion groups convened at the conference. Heart-felt dialogue addressed how RCT can be applied to education, race, white privilege, the neurobiology of connection, resistance to marginalization, LBGTQI issues, mentorship, girl-centered practice, intellectual mattering, disruptive empathy, the radical reality of relationships, integrating critical race and relational cultural theories, our intrinsic relationship with the environment, and relational advocacy.The authors an...

The widely cited, though highly contested, idea that "the world is flat" (Friedman, 2004) carries with it acall for education to provide a leveling effect across continents and cultures Students in Skokie or inSkopje, as the theory goes, are expected to experience a school curriculum that shares certain commonelements, goals, and purposes. Such a globalized view is not, however, without its complications. Thisbook addresses some of the issues that arise when the transmigration of educational ideas occurs, with aparticular eye toward the ethical dilemmas that curriculum workers face in international contexts.The authors who have contributed to this volume explore, through case examples and critical reflection,what happens when ideas that are drawn from one set of cultural norms and experiences is introduced intoother cultural contexts. In many cases these are the stories of "donors" and "hosts," of structuredinequities of power and influence, of disparities in material resources, and, as expressed in one of thecases, the dynamics of the "colonizer" and the "colonized." A recurrent theme concerns the challengesfaced by educators working internationally to reconcile their own ethical predispositions toward equityand cultural responsiveness with certain tacit assumptions about the appropriateness or value of curriculum practices brought from the "developed"world for teachers and students in the "developing" world.

Anita Gupta Rural Indians. Perceptions of Brands Based on Ethics in Advertising

Advertising as well as Marketing to the rural consumers is an altogether different ballgame. Here, life of the people revolves around traditional or cultural beliefs and values rather than on rationality and pragmatism. No wonder then, that customer perception of brands here plays a pivotal role in customers'purchase decision-making for various product categories and hence understanding that has significant relevance for marketers. Ethics in advertisements play a very important role in forming and molding the customer perception for their brands.Not much research was carried out earlier on the impact of ethics in advertisements on the customers' perception of brands in the context of rural India. This book is an attempt to fill that knowledge gap. It is based on a research conducted in rural areas of Uttar Pradesh-the biggest state in India in terms of the population. It was thought useful to come up with the outcome of a research on the issue of customer perception of brands based on ethics on advertising which carries a huge significance in the world of Marketing.

Sigrid Hackenberg y. Almansa Total History, Anti-History, and the Face That Is Other

Total History, Anti-History, and the Face that is Other motions towards a metaphysics of the body that is identically groundless-ground, wherein the delineation of the body, inpropinquity, contradiction, and separation-as the body of a point of departure-assumes the possibility of a duplicity of existences and time(s) that are at once itself (the Same) and its interruption (the Other and/or Infinity).In its provocative reading of Hegel's philosophy of history and Levinas' "face to face" encounter, Hackenberg y Almansa's Total History, Anti-History, and the Face that is Other explores vital questions of history and ethics-offering us a possibility for a metaphysics of the body in the plural.

Kate Polak Ethics in the Gutter. Empathy and Historical Fiction in Comics

Ethics in the Gutter: Empathy and Historical Fiction in Comics explores an often-overlooked genre of graphic narratives: those that fictionalize historical realities. While autographics, particularly those that place the memoirist in the context of larger cultural conversations, have been the objects of sustained study, fictional graphic narratives that-as Linda Hutcheon has put it-both "enshrine and question" history are also an important area of study. By bringing narratology and psychological theory to bear on a range of graphic narratives, Kate Polak seeks to question how the form utilizes point of view and the gutter as ethical tools that shape the reader's empathetic reactions to the content. This book's most important questions surround how we receive and interpret representations of history, considering the ways in which what we think we know about historical atrocities can be at odds with the convoluted circumstances surrounding violence. Beginning with a new look at Watchmen, and including examinations of such popular series as Scalped and Hellblazer as well as Bayou and Deogratias, the book questions how graphic narratives create an alternative route by which to understand large-scale violence. Ethics in the Gutter explores how graphic narrative representations of violence can teach readers about the possibilities and limitations of empathy and ethics.

This book is aventure in critical auto-ethnography, exploring critique through this ethnographic techniquehas allowed me to bring stories to the reader that work to illuminate the personal nature ofeducational ethics. It works to fill the gap in education critique where self-examination ismissing. It is a cultural study of five different educational environments. Research incultural studies attempts to account for cultural objects under conditions constrained bypower and defined by contestation, conflict, and change. Cultural Studies grapples with thevolatility of cultural happenings. Throwing Voices emphasizes self-reflexivity; an awarenessthat scholars and their scholarship are themselves caught up in the social currents and in theglobal circulation of meanings being studied. In taking up questions from this perspective,cultural studies both draws on and develops key strands of contemporary cultural theory: semiotics, deconstruction andpoststructuralism, dialogics, subaltern and postcolonial studies . The field also draws on and develops a number of innovativemethodologies: autoethnography, blurred genres of writing, and other new forms of critical research.Within, I pay homage to satirist Lenny Bruce, and it earned me a one way ticket to scholarly palookaville.

Joe Oblack Radical Islam Wins. The United Islamic States of America

This is the story of what may happen in any country of the world! In this case, when ethics of old fade and the United States of America allows more and more government to support more and more people, the once-stable economy fails, which allows radical Islam to plant the seeds and eventually succeed in establishing an Islamic State. Our democratic republic’s president is replaced with a caliph who rules under the strict code of Shariah (Islamic Law). Islamic fundamentalism takes over, and America, the once economic and military power of the world, becomes part of the new Islamic world order. It is a reality that should be explored because it could be our future. Many in our great nation refuse to believe Shariah represents a threat to us or that radical Islam plans to change our way of life. Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. Can radical Islam replace our Constitution with Shariah? Again, many in our country say no, but think about this. When Adolph Hitler walked into the Socialist German Workers’ Party, he became a member of that small organization. Fourteen years later he was chancellor of the Nazi party that ruled Germany. The peaceful and silent majority of Germany were irrelevant! Following the fictional beginning, the rest of this book includes an easy-to-read and concise history and description of the tenets of Islam, as well as how radical Islam uses these beliefs to threaten the population of the world. Some of the subjects covered include Shari...

Hope through the valley is a thirty-day devotional that will encourage, strengthen, and challenge you in the scriptures as you face difficulties in life. You will have the opportunity to ?do? what the scriptures instruct. Anyone can read or hear the word and most will go about their day and forget all about it, but putting the word into action takes strength, faith, hope and purpose. James 1:22-24, ?But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was.?Understand that this trial is not in your life to ruin you, its here to instruct, challenge and grow you. Romans 5:3-4, ?And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.?In reading Hope through the valley for thirty days my prayer is that you will be impacted by the love and grace of God, reignited in your faith, strengthened by the mighty hand of God, and that you will find a new perspective of your situation as you pray and do the word.Don?t stop at just thirty days of Hope Through the Valley, read it again and relive the challenges.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Ethics, grade: 1.7, University of Tubingen (Chair of Bank Management and International Centre for Ethics in the Sciences and Humanities (IZEW)), language: English, abstract: On the one hand, our rapidly developing economy transforms scientific and technologicaladvancement, irreversibility as well as difficult adjustability within liberalizing global activityinto powerful instruments for top management of multinational corporations in terms ofeconomic value creation. On the other hand, this economy gathers human beings especiallyas moral subjects (and not just economical objects); moreover, human beings with diametricallydistinct cultural and religious (i.e., moral) orientations. That means, managersnecessarily need to apply and justify responsible and consistent use of their instruments (i.e.,ethical value creation/consideration). Is this not the case, efficiency principles of so called"theories of management ethics" relate exclusively to the economic side (but not to theethical one). At first, this interdisciplinary diploma thesis therefore defines four variables(disciplinary integration, theoretical integration, justification and application), which anintegrative or interdisciplinary theory of academic management ethics necessarily needs tohave. Second, two concept of management ethics are analyzed, that both rise the claim of beingsuch a theory. The first concept (corporate social performance) is positive-economicall...

Scientific Essay from the year 2010 in the subject Cultural Studies - Miscellaneous, , course: Kulturanthropologie, language: English, abstract: In this heading a twofold monumental assumption is hidden: Supreme intelligence can be equated to true cultural enlightenment. But in order to be truly enlightened in cultural matters a shadowless light is required. And as culture is part of the psychological architecture of man, the entire mental infrastructure needs to beillumined, for if one component of the whole casts a shadow, the entire mental architecture and with it the cultural contents will be affected and darkened and thus impair the desired uncorrupted cultural intelligence which can only blossom in a pristine, pure mind. This rather perfect state is that of mastership of culture, for it will only radiate the pristine purity of the mind in the outer world and soothe cultural tensions, wounds and conflicts.

Angelos Pontos How Can Demographics Predict Tourists. Choices.

This book investigates the tourism preferences of customers in ten European cities. The consequent research questions cover the actual destination choice of various consumer segments, the dependence of destination distance on socio-demographic characteristics, GDP and cultural differences, the motivations to visit a holiday destination and the role of environmental protection and climate change on tourists' plans. To refine these topics and choose the most interesting related factors, several academics and researchers worldwide participated in an online survey. Eventually, the author conducted more than 1000 face-to-face interviews in the metropolitan areas of the ten cities and implemented three different regression methods for the analysis. The results show that demographics can predict tourists' choices and the destination distance significantly depends on GDP per capita and cultural characteristics.

Arun SK Raju Pyrolysis of the Phenyl Radical in a Single Pulse Shock Tube

This thesis presents the results of phenyl pyrolysis experiments conducted in a high pressure single pulse shock tube using nitrosobenzene as the phenyl radical source. The experiments were conducted at pressures of 25 bar and 50 bar, over a temperature range of 750 to 1400 K. The stable product species formed were detected and analyzed using a gas chromatograph and mass spectrometer apparatus. A rate for the nitrosobenzene dissociation reaction yielding phenyl radical and nitric oxide has been obtained from the experimental data. The ability of three different chemical kinetic models to simulate this data was tested using the CHEMKIN software. Sensitivity analysis was performed on these models and the result has been presented. The objective of this work is to explore the significant role phenyl radical plays in the combustion of aromatic hydrocarbons.

Abdelaziz Bouchara, Bouchra Qorchi The role of religion in shaping politeness during greeting encounters in Arabic. A matter of conflict or understanding

Politeness is one of the very important issues in the field of sociolinguistics and pragmatics, as it can be seen in almost every type of our interactions. Since the evolving of the politeness theory (Brown and Levinson 1978), cross-cultural pragmatics has gained the attention of many researchers in this field. However, the Arab society has been far less investigated. Therefore, this book widens the scope of cross-cultural pragmatics by investigating politeness in (Moroccan) Arabic and contrasting the behavior of Arab and German speakers with regard to one type of politeness, namely the speech act of greeting. Furthermore, the implications of this study for foreign language teaching and cross-cultural training indicate that politeness and face concerns in different cultures should be part of any learning process. Hopefully, besides being informative, especially to scholars from other fields of intercultural communication research, this study should contribute to raise the awareness of sociolinguists in particular with respect to the role of religion in shaping politeness in Arabic and to serious confusion and misunderstandings that may come into being, when communicators from different cultural backgrounds cannot identify the pragmatic (implicit or indirect) meaning of their interlocutor's utterance.

Master's Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,0, University of Applied Sciences Ludwigshafen (Institute for International Management Consulting I-IMC), language: English, abstract: In the current financial and economic crisis, public concern of a value-based economic system grows. The demand by politicians, economists and the society for ethics-oriented behaviour in the market increases and thus questions the prevailing system of worldwide managerial capitalism. Especially in Germany, the rising awareness for bad business practices calls for a change in values. This development not only affects the providers of products and services, but also has significant impacts on their strategic and operational advisors: the industry of management consulting. Against this background, the present masters dissertation examines the extent to which the principles of integrative consulting ethics are incorporated in management consulting firms in Germany. To this end, the determinants of awareness, institutionalisation, application and enforcement of ethics integration in organisations are assessed. This work represents the first academic approach to researching the practical application of thoroughly reflected ethics-oriented guidelines and standards in the industry management consulting.After a general introduction into the topic, the theoretical framework research provides the background of the work done in t...

From 2008-2016, the leader of the free world was a black man.
