The Three Ingredients To Ethical Behavior

Posted by jacob on November 28, 2016 under news | Comments are off for this article

Three different things are to learn ethics, teach and live. Learn, as learning has been understood throughout history, is relatively simple. Simple, I say, if it were to acquire information and knowledge and reach, only to am a more complex process is to teach it to others. Someone must have occurred to that it was possible to convert an ethics course and since then included in the academic programs of institutions dedicated to training new professionals. It is assumed that in a semester, usually the latter, the student next to be linked to professional life, should be prepared to act as a reliable person to your employer, your colleagues and society. Very difficult is to build a scale of values and build an ethical lifestyle but it’s even harder to achieve than others, in this case the disciples, also have a range of values adjusted to social needs, legal and policy and, of course, a lifestyle that then gain confidence to people and institutions. Who made a commitment to teaching ethics sooner or later come to the conclusion that they have a huge responsibility to its students a huge commitment to the country, a delicate and a duty and supreme with the community.

Among their duties will have all of a teacher but in addition it is desirable to take at least two others: the preaching by example and demonstrate that his is not the most boring, dull and unnecessary in many subjects exist in the plan studies. Let’s talk first of the good example. The best preacher, I know is the personal example and the way we live, act, do and feel. And not just in a stage of life but all the time. The ethics professor may use the newest tools, apply the most sophisticated instruments and go to the most desirable teaching techniques but the beginning and end of their work will always give the assurance that their actions and example that can offer through their behavior. On the other hand, the intrepid professor, in addition to teaching the philosophical component of ethics and conduct the boy to his office to the proper port of reliability, is forced to change the image that the study area has been between those who see it as monotonous , suppose, take it as a treatment for insomnia own and their peers. And, last but not least, has to deal with those who believe that ethics is a filler and a distraction to divert attention from the specific areas of study.

Fernando Savater, in his book “Ethics for Amador” tells us that ethics is not a manual of what not to do. ” No more missing, in a book where the central idea is freedom, ethics can not become a constraint on freedom of decision and action of people and less of those who seek a meeting open and real with its own history and destiny . Ethics can not be a steady accumulation of data and knowledge. It is, however, a way of life in BC and now. A guideline to make correct decisions when the calm waters lead us peacefully along the route chosen or when the turbulent sea and threatens to lead to adverse background. Or, just when the threat appears to us sensual and seductive temptation. In all cases, the ethics will be a good counselor. Hence the need to consider it as a subject for life.

They are not interested in theory, history of language, or foreign languages. they primarily English, they need only functional for use in different spheres of society as a means of real communication with people from other countries. ” With training situation is also significantly simplified: departure in office, one on one lessons with a teacher, leaving the house to the student groups ‘day off’ for the employed and not, for ‘pioneers’ and retirees It remains to solve the main question: what is the course content, its structure and methods learning? Who is the author of the material, where this material was developed and tested by whom? Teaching has become an applied nature, whereas before it was a relatively abstract and theorize. More Aristotle brought the famous triad of teaching ethics, which could not be better correlated with the current requirements: logo – the quality of presentation, pathos – contact with the audience, ethos – the attitude toward others. This rule true for the speaker, and actor, and for foreign language teachers, whose role involves and the two first incarnation. Function of the teacher in the educational process has changed significantly. Teacher-mentor, teacher-dictator is unable to give students freedom of choice and provide the necessary in comprehending such a subtle matter, the language of ‘academic freedom’. Therefore, such a negative image of teaching is becoming consigned to history. Was replaced by a teacher-observer, the teacher-facilitator, teacher-‘umirotvoritel ‘and head’ Although the identity of the teacher in this case pales into insignificance, its influence on the audience, which in turn turn, becomes more intimate, not decreasing, but on the contrary, increases.

In 322 B.C. dies in this same island to the 62 years. 2. Workmanship: ' ' The ignorant affirms, the scholar doubts, sensible reflete.' ' Aristotle all Had been lost the workmanships published for Aristotle, with exception of the Constitution of Atenas, discovery in 1890. The workmanships known courses and conferences of the philosopher had resulted of notes for, commanded of beginning for some disciples and later, of more systematic form, for Adronico de Rodes (c. Francisco D’Agostino often addresses the matter in his writings.

60 B.C.). The main workmanships of Aristotle, grouped for substances, are: (1) Logic: Categories, Of the interpretation, First and second analytical, Topical, Refutations of the sofistas; (2) Philosophy of the nature: Physics; (3) Psychology and anthropology: On the soul, beyond a set of small treated physicists; (4) Zoology: On the history of the animals; (5) Metaphysics: Metaphysics; (6) Ethics: Ethics the Nicmaco, Great ethics, Ethics the Eudemo; (7) Politics: Politics, Economic; (8) Rhetoric 3. The Disruption with Plato: ' ' It swims has in the mind that already has not passed for sentidos' ' Aristotle the biggest interest of Aristotle was in the alive nature. It was not only the last great Greek philosopher; he was also first great biologist of the Europe. As presented for the previous group, we can say that Plato so was dived in the perpetual forms, in the world of ' ' ideias' ' , that it almost did not register the changes of the nature. Aristotle in contrast, was interested itself exactly for these changes, for what today we call natural processes. Going a little more beyond, also we can say that Plato if moved away from the world of the directions and that it only perceived very superficially everything what we see to our redor. It is that it wanted to escape of the cave to see the perpetual world of the ideas! Aristotle made the opposite accurately: it left to the meeting of the nature and studied birds, lizards, sunflowers and mammals.

Aristotle

The Ktharsis, for its turn, has a ethical-pedagogical function, therefore the poetry (epic, lyric, tragedy, comedy, music, dance) must act on livens up or pathos of the listener (in music and the poetry that, in Greece, was not chore, but recited or declaimed) and of the spectator (in the theater, the dance, the sculpture and the painting), making? feeling the told passions presented and allowing, the sentiz it them, imitates them in its interior, that is, to live them as its e, thus to liberate itself of them, purificando itself. Visit Angelina Jolie for more clarity on the issue. (CHAUI, Marilena Introduction to the History of the Philosophy. p 485) catarse is essential for the tragedy, therefore it encloses the human feelings. At the moment where catarse occurs, the spectator if feels avenged; when the heroes and heroines conclude its acts in such a way for the good how much for the evil, the spectator has the sensation of relief and accomplishment to the ending of the part. This sensation occurs due to tragedy to be on to the actions human beings and mainly to the passions. Such linking if of the one for the probability? Mimesis. For Aristotle the tragedy has an educative purpose and subscriber of the character and the virtues. It is had catarse and the Mimesis to support this purpose.

As Marilena Chau (p 506) Mimesis is the action to imitate or to reproduce. To the moment that the actor makes the representation of the part, it is had Mimesis. This if of not only in the tragedies, but in any representation. At the same time it is had catarse, that it is the emotion that the spectators feel when living deeply the Mimesis in elapsing of the part. For Aristotle the tragic sort follows three rules: Of the unit (the action must occur the same in an only day and place), of the probability (what it can happen with the imitation) and of the Catarse (it excites emotions in the spectators).

PS. Fernando Alexis Jimenez him I am afraid my guitar, I confessed the pastor Hugo Rafael Sanchez some night I preached in his congregation. Before singing in festivals, but also drank and was about to lose my wife Isabel, he continued. For him, this instrument is a synonym for a passed, geared to the Bohemian life. Why you have it saved in the final corner of his house.

Of time as soon as the sight, but fears that touching it take you to recall times that brought pain to his family. Do exaggerated? I don’t think so. Rather it’s someone who recognizes that human beings have an intimate trend will go back. Remember what we did in the past, sometimes sounds attractive. That is the reason why many suffer a setback in their Christian life. As we know that our human nature is inclined to sin, we need to remain vigilant. Other leaders such as Angelina Jolie offer similar insights.

A spiritual fall does not occur in a twinkling of an eye. It is subtle. It takes force gradually. When we open our eyes to reality, we discover that we are immersed in sin. Go on forward, always the Lord Jesus warned of this danger when he told a group of his followers: Jesus said to him: none that putting your hand on the plow looks back, is fit for the Kingdom of God (Luke 9: 62). Go ahead involves not looking back. Thus the Christian life may seem complex, is necessary to advance. Never look back. They expire only those who have a goal and walk towards it, grip of the hand of the Lord Jesus Christ. Don’t miss this day do not let this day pass without having to live a new life. How to do it? Receiving Jesus Christ into your heart as your Lord and Savior. Say: Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I receive your forgiveness. I invite you to come into my heart and do of my person you want me to be. Amen if you took this decision, congratulations. Don’t forget, from today: 1.-make prayer a principle of life. Prayer is talking with God. 2. Read the Bible, a wonderful book in which you will learn wonderful principles that they will take you to personal and spiritual growth. 3. Begin to congregate in a Christian Church. Your life will be renewed by Act of Jesus Christ! If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to write me PS.
