Nietzsche On Envy, Gary Shapiro Jan 1983

Nietzsche On Envy, Gary Shapiro

Philosophy Faculty Publications

A recent newspaper story suggests a significant change in the attitude of some baseball fans. While the phenomenon of harassment of players from the stands is not new, there seems to be a new spirit behind the hurling of bottles and other dangerous debris. Whereas such attacks were once motivated by scorn for poor performance or by a violent enthusiasm for the opposing team, spectators are now also apparently moved by envy. They are, according to a number of sportswriters, jealous and resentful of the high salaries and prestige of professional ballplayers. No doubt envy is an ancient phenomenon, but ...


The Question Of Atheism And Communism In The Animal Welfare/Rights Movement, Michael W. Fox Jan 1983

The Question Of Atheism And Communism In The Animal Welfare/Rights Movement, Michael W. Fox

Animal Welfare Collection

Just as economics has increasingly been employed as a political weapon, so religion is now being used to further self-serving goals. Agribusiness spokespersons not only use fallacious economic arguments to justify the "factory" farming of animals; they have also stated that any questioning about man's Godgiven right to exploit animals is atheistic, and perhaps an actual affront to God's will. Furthermore, taking an egalitarian attitude toward animals, and proposing that they have rights or should be given equal and fair consideration, is regarded as the inspiration of some covert communist conspiracy that is constantly working to restructure and ...


Humane Ethics And Animal Rights, Michael W. Fox Jan 1983

Humane Ethics And Animal Rights, Michael W. Fox

Animal Welfare Collection

While the primary goal of the animal welfare movement is to eliminate suffering in those animal species that are exploited by humans, this goal, although exemplary, is narrow sighted. Notwithstanding the practical difficulties of proving animal suffering, especially psychological, suffering could conceivably be eliminated, as in confined farm animals, through the use of tranquilizers, or even brain surgery. A goose being made to eat compulsively, following selective partial destruction or stimulation of its brain to cause hypertrophy of its liver for the liver pate trade, may not suffer. But it is being harmed. Likewise, to selective breed a farm animal ...

The Concept Of The Object Relation In The Writings Of Gotthard Booth, M.D.: An Example Of An Emerging Paradigm In Medicine, Thomas Charles Foster Jan 1983

The Concept Of The Object Relation In The Writings Of Gotthard Booth, M.D.: An Example Of An Emerging Paradigm In Medicine, Thomas Charles Foster

Theses and Dissertations (Comprehensive)

The writings of Gotthard Booth, M.D., especially his concept of object relation, demonstrate a change in medical thought away from a mechanistic to a holistic conception of man. His concept of the object relation and the diagnostic rationale that he developed from it reveal changes in medical conceptualization that are consistent with those changes in conceptualization across a variety of disciplines that have been identified as part of an emerging paradigm.


The Role Of The Mystic Actor At The Decline Of Civilization, Susan Dunlop Harper Jan 1983

The Role Of The Mystic Actor At The Decline Of Civilization, Susan Dunlop Harper

Theses and Dissertations (Comprehensive)

An examination of the creative role of the individual confronting the decline and possible destruction of civilization, this thesis explores the potential of one human being to achieve, through a process of the reconciliation of opposites, unity within himself and throughout the world. William Butler Years’s theories of the Unity of Opposites, the Unity of Being, and the Unity of Culture are applied to the responsibility of the individual to realize his identity as a mystic actor: a person who takes action within the sacred, thereby creating himself and the universe in which he lives.

Association Between Personal And Professional Values, Richard Mccuen, Michael Pritchard Dec 1982

Association Between Personal And Professional Values, Richard Mccuen, Michael Pritchard

Michael Pritchard

Empirical evidence indicates that individuals do not always respond to an ethical dilemma in a professional setting in a manner consistent with the principles of the value system used to make moral decisions in personal settings. A study was undertaken to evaluate the degree of association between personal and professional value decision‐making. Responses from 21 individuals to case studies involving value conflicts were evaluated and subjected to correlation analyses. The results indicate that a strong correlation exists; however, eight of the 21 individuals showed some difference in value decision‐making capability when responding to value conflicts in personal and ...
