If so, then he has every right to refuse treatment; if not, treatment may be given him.

Social Shift from Religion to Spirituality

Religion and Spirituality in a Broad Sense Spirituality and religion are two terms that have rather unstable, historically changing definitions, characterized by numerous implied and explicit theological considerations.

Interviews and questionnaire tools arising out of these definitions characteristically undertake measurements of the spirituality element by posing questions with regard to people's self-identity, psychological experiences, and… Continue Reading...

Innovation Best Practices

In his book, Beyond the obvious: killer questions that spark game-changing innovation, Phil McKinney (2012) argues that most innovation efforts fail because the right questions are never asked -- people are taught and do not stray from the obvious.

Indeed, asking the right questions is the heart of innovation (Berger, 2014).

Asian Bioethics and Towards Reconciliation

in terms of which philosophical traditions to draw from and how to effectively integrate them? I would first outline the core tenets of major philosophical traditions, and then discuss the importance of actually scrapping all of them entirely for a new 21st century global vision for bioethics. It is impossible to rely upon centuries-old or even millennia-old traditions and expect those traditions to remain relevant in a world in which human cloning is actually a possibility. Therefore, a post-modern, 21st century bioethics is one that has learned from the past, but which is built and designed for the future. Specifically,… Continue Reading...

Lillian Hellman Biography by Kessler Harris

Alice Kessler-Harris places the illustrious life of Lillian Hellman into historical and cultural perspective in A Difficult Woman: The Challenging Life and Times of Lillian Hellman. The book does not follow Hellman’s life chronologically from her birth to death, but thematically instead. Kessler-Harris almost seems to be using Hellman as a symbol of her times, or a window into how America navigated important changes. As she states in the introduction, “Hellman’s life seems to me to so deeply encapsulate many of the twentieth century’s challenges,” (Kessler-Harris, 2013, p. 4). Feminism and communism play the most important roles in Hellman’s life, as… Continue Reading...

Conflict in the Story Soldier’s Home

Analyzing Conflict Ernest Hemingway’s story titled “Soldier’s Home” features a youth, Harold Krebs who is unable to adapt and lead an ordinary life after returning from war. Akin to several fellow soldiers-turned-writers, Hemingway uses this tale to explain his own problems with adjusting to a civilian life after the war. Though Krebs does set store by the truth, circumstances and society coerce him into lying. The tale depicts, in an accurate manner, the contradiction between his personal values (which changed drastically following his experiences on the battlefield) and people’s expectations from him (he is expected to display compliance with societal… Continue Reading...

The Right to Privacy

1. The constitutional foundation for the right to privacy is multifaceted. However, this right is implicit to the right of liberty guaranteed by this document. In particular, privacy is a manifestation of the civil liberties which all citizens are assured of in the U.S. Constitution. The preamble to the constitution states this fact. The preamble reveals the Constitution was created in part to “secure the Blessings of Liberty” (Founding Fathers). The blessings of liberty quickly become a curse if there is no privacy.

Implementing Compassionate Immigration Reform

Identifying Optimal Immigration Policies In 1870, the United States had a population of about 39 million people with virtually no immigration laws in place (U.S. historic population, 2017). In fact, it was not until several individual states began passing various types of immigration laws after the Civil War that the federal government enacted any limitations on immigration to the United States at all (Early American immigration policies, 2017). Although the situation in America is far different today, these early immigration policies were based on the same exclusionary issues that they are today. For instance, the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882… Continue Reading...

Preaching the Bible to a Modern Audience

The prophetic text of Ezekiel offers important clues to the meaning of the ministry of Jesus. Ezekiel presents one of the central metaphors that Jesus would later use, particularly that of the shepherd leading the flock of the righteous to salvation. Ezekiel discusses the role of the shepherd in two different ways. First, the shepherd is responsible for searching for flock that has scattered or for flock in need of rescue. “I look after my sheep. I will rescue them from all the places where they were scattered on a day of clouds and darkness,” (Ezekiel 34:12). Second, Ezekiel refers… Continue Reading...

Political Systems in Ireland and Britain

The United Kingdom and Ireland have both enjoyed geographic separation from the continent of Europe, enabling both to develop unique political cultures and institutions. Ireland has been even more removed from the fray, having never been part of the Roman Empire, and systematically resistant to the same invasions that affected England throughout much of their respective histories. However, the proximity between Ireland and England—and later the United Kingdom—has caused the two countries to be “intertwined politically, economically, and culturally for over 800 years,” (The Republic and Politics of the Republic of Ireland 5). British hegemony has generally meant that Irish… Continue Reading...

This helped in group learning assignments in which I was able to work well with classmates that were less oriented towards precision. Challenges Faced As a strong-willed learner, the challenges I will face mainly have to do with working… Continue Reading...

Europe and the Modern Era

The European Historical Perspective, Social Issues and Educational Issues The European historical perspective has changed from era to era. Europe, which is often called The West, had its foundations laid by the classical philosophers—Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle—who defined the concept of the Transcendentals and gave future generations the ideas of what it meant to live a good and happy life. These philosophers were Greek, but many nations for centuries after their deaths pondered their thoughts on education, on social issues and on life itself. The Romans, the Jews, the Christians (who later led Europe for more than a millennium) all… Continue Reading...

Reflection and Research Essay on Augustine: Saint Augustine on Evil

Origin of Evil The origin of evil has been a controversial issue not only in the contemporary Christian circles but also among the ancient Greek Christians. The point of contention in the discussion about the origin of evil is why a good God would have created evil. The Judeo-Christians struggled to understand how a good, powerful, and all-knowing God could allow evil to exist. The logical conclusions were that either God did not exist or God was not good[footnoteRef:1]. However, Augustine sought to clarify this erroneous notion about the existence of God. Saint Augustine believed that the discussion on the… Continue Reading...

How Important Is the Idea Of Equality to Each Theorist

John Stuart Mill and the idea of equality Society typically views the triad nexus of politicians, bureaucracies and the financial elite suspiciously, believing they breach the common man’s rights, and, consequently, strives to ensure they behave as it desires. Mills argues, “the government, whether completely responsible to the people or not, will often attempt to control the expression of opinion, except when in doing so it makes itself the organ of the general intolerance of the public (pg. 376).” The above societal attitude is understandable as this triad nexus has violated people’s will and freedom. As a result, democracies were… Continue Reading...

Proposed Immigration Bill

Introduction A lot gets lost in the current debates over immigration in the United States. When we regurgitate what we hear on the news or on Facebook, we fail to think deeply or critically about the issues. This nation is a settler nation; of that there is no doubt. European settlers displaced, forcibly removed, betrayed, and in many cases killed indigenous people whose land this was for centuries before. Those same Europeans cultivated a sense of entitlement to these lands, pushing farther and farther west until they hit yet another ocean. And they did not even stop there. They pressed… Continue Reading...

A uniquely firm and strong message, James 5:1-6 also lends itself to misinterpretation. As Pilch points out, “James does not really denounce wealth as such,” but rather, “condemns the injustice and inhumanity that so frequently accompany it,” (p. 367). James refers to atonement for labor exploitation, for example, and for unbridled greed at the expense of others. It is fully possible to preach compassion, tolerance, and inclusivity while also warning against the pitfalls of materialism. Pilch also shows how the James passage denounces social status and advocates for a true Christian community. The Pope’s writings reflect the balanced perspective related… Continue Reading...

Climate Change Impacts

Part 1: A Closer Look at the Evidence 1. The first graph on the NASA site shows the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere, comparing across time. It shows that for all time, there were fluctuations in the level of CO2 in the atmosphere, but that the level always remained below 300 parts per million. The graph takes a sharp uptick in recent years, and by the time we get to the 20th century it is basically a straight upward line, to the present level around 400ppm. The 1950 level was only at around 320, so nearly a quarter of… Continue Reading...

Why Is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Cbt Effective?

CBT represents a psychosocial strategy where psychotherapists instigate behavioral modification among clients, aiding them in tackling and altering the unreasonable views and theories potentially underlying maladaptive conduct. Such conduct is defined as socially intolerable or counterproductive conduct that stops people from properly adapting to ordinary circumstances. CBT’s chief aim is identification of maladaptive conduct and connected opinions, correction of these opinions, and their replacement by more apt views which will lead to better adaptive conduct and improved coping (Gatchel & Rollings, 2008). In keeping with the psychiatric medical theory, CBT’s efficacy, on the whole, is governed by its ability to… Continue Reading...

Du Bois Vs John Lennon Sociology

Q1. Research the sociologist W. E. B. Du Bois and discuss his contributions to society. W. E. B. Du Bois, the author of The Souls of Black Folk, was one of the most notable African-American activists of the early 20th century. In this seminal work, Du Bois outlined what he called the double consciousness of African-Americans, “the sense of looking at one’s self through the eyes of others” (Du Bois 5). Black people were simultaneously excluded from mainstream American society yet also forced to understand it, given that they were rendered into a state of economic dependence on whites, thanks… Continue Reading...

Utilitarianism and Environmentalism in Ethics

Introduction Is utilitarianism an effective approach to environmental ethics? Behaviors that demonstrate personal and collective responsibility to the environment can lead to tangible short-term and long-term objectives that benefit a large number of people. Reducing pollution, limiting deforestation, preserving natural resources, protecting sensitive ecosystems, and mitigating climate change bring about the greatest good for the greatest number, what John Stuart Mill (2017) refers to as summum bonum, the fundamental principle of utilitarianism (p. 1). Therefore, most environmentally conscious policies, business practices, and personal behaviors can be viewed in utilitarian terms. Explanation of Theory Utilitarianism is a consequentialist ethical theory, which… Continue Reading...

Social Networking Effect on Philanthropy

One of the key Robin-hood rules, when it comes to philanthropy, is Relentless Monetization. Relentless Monetization or “RM” concentrates on mutual expressions for inner deliberations, interaction with grantees, openness, examination, position grants or loans, and calculating the overall performance of the financier (as well as the grant) (Weinstein & Bradburd, 2013). Disclosing grant-making to the rigor of RM alters the type of grant-making considerations. Instead of loosely discussing inspiring professional company directors or innovative quests, employees depend on a mutual language that focuses on results-oriented facts. Furthermore, RM enables funders to create the sets of rules it utilizes to designate… Continue Reading...

Missionaries

However, the RCA Global Mission page on the organization’s website claims 233 years of missionary work (“RCA Global Mission,” 2018).

Conflict Resolution Education and Theory Bible

Part One The primary theoretical models of conflict include the cooperative model, principled negotiation, human needs model, conflict transformation, and conflict transmutation (Dixit, 2004). Theoretical bases for conflict resolution include both macro-level and micro-level frameworks that guide understanding of human behavior and decision-making (Cunningham, 1998). Many theories of conflict resolution at some point refer to human needs theory, which helps clarify sources of conflict as being traceable to unmet needs. Conflict arises when fundamental needs are not being met, and resolutions are more likely to arise when parties recognize what their needs are as well as those of their opponents.… Continue Reading...

Human Robot Interaction

Human-Robot Interaction There is a problem with clarity in the question – I've been assigned a robot, and the question accepts that, but the question asks "for which you design your robot." The robot has already been designed, so the question is nonsensical. There is also the claim that terms in capital letters are defined in Looijie – this is also false. Those terms are used in that paper, and form the basis of it, but they are not explicitly defined in that paper.

Introduction to Sociology: the Lorax

Introduction to Sociology: The Lorax 1 & 4 The aspects of capitalism that I personally appreciate are the ideas of a free market and the idea that anybody can bring their goods to the market place. I appreciate the fact that in a capitalistic society, there is the opportunity for people being able to compete in the market with products, letting consumers choose from among the lot that which they think is best for the cost. What I find worrisome is that capitalism can lend itself to unrestrained greed and complete disregard for everything that is external to oneself, as… Continue Reading...

The Role Media Plays in Relation to Gender Stereotypes

Introduction By being born a man or a woman signals to bearing certain clear sexual characteristics. Socialization takes individuals through a path that inculcates certain norms and codes of conduct depending on whether one is born a male or a female.

Therefore, one’s communication, expression and behavior is shaped by the preexisting cultural and social norms including non-verbal language. Consequently, people’s behavior may differ because they are shaped by cultural and social norms from varying socio-ethnic and cultural setups. All… Continue Reading...

Beneficence Respect and Justice in Education Research

The ethics of research conducted on human subjects has been debated for almost a century. Studies like the Tuskegee syphilis experiment and other gross violations of ethical principles have called attention to the importance of rigorous standards in the social sciences. Education is not always considered a social science, and yet it is—and one with some of the most significant implications for humanity. As Lopez-Alvarado (2017) points out, education is about empowering individuals and enriching society, not just about teaching specific tasks and processes. Educational research therefore has many meaningful effects and should be taken just as seriously as research… Continue Reading...
