Religious Perspectives On Business Ethics, Scott Paeth, Thomas O'Brien Mar 2009

Tackling such wide-ranging subjects as Jewish environmental ethics, Zen in the workplace, and Christian social ethics, this text is a valuable addition to business ethics courses.

Enquiry On The Anima, Alan A. Mackenzie Nov 2006

Enquiry On The Anima, Alan A. Mackenzie

Alan A MacKENZIE

At midlife one tends to see life differently; in that, the meaning and purpose of the first half of life begins to fail us… and our whole agenda changes. Reaching midlife for many of my clients brings with it feelings of fracturing, alienation and lustiness. This paper is a reflective examination of how midlife changes bring out what Jung emphasized about the anima's role: as that factor in the male psyche responsible for the process of projection, not just for projections of and onto women- but all projection.

Caught In A Compromising Position: The Biblical Exegesis And Characterization Of Biblical Protagonists In Syriac Dialogue Hymns, Kristi Upson-Saia Jul 2006

Caught In A Compromising Position: The Biblical Exegesis And Characterization Of Biblical Protagonists In Syriac Dialogue Hymns, Kristi Upson-Saia

Kristi Upson-Saia

Syriac Dialogue hymns have been an important part of East and West Syriac liturgy since at least the middle of the century CE. The hymns perform a distinctive method of biblical interpretation "freeze frame" exegesis that expands biblical narratives in order to garner scriptural support for contemporary Christological positions. While providing useful theological training, however, the hymns convey several compromised portrayals of biblical protagonists, which are striking when compared with Greek and Latin treatments of the same figures.


Angels As Spiritual Guides, David San Filippo Ph.D. Jun 2006

Angels As Spiritual Guides, David San Filippo Ph.D.

David San Filippo Ph.D.

The existence of angels has been discussed for centuries in legendary, philosophical, and religious writings. Many people have reported encounters with angels at different times in their life. Near-death research has recorded angelic encounters, during near-death experiences, by describing encounters with beings of light or angelic forms recognizable to the experiencer. This essay will discuss some legendary, theological, and philosophical beliefs that support the belief in the reality of angels as messengers, guides, and guardians to human beings and their function as spiritual guides during near-death experiences.

The Reality Of Artifice: Villiers De L'Isle Adam's L'Eve Future And The Anxiety Of Reproduction, Boyd J. Petersen May 2006

The Reality Of Artifice: Villiers De L'Isle Adam's L'Eve Future And The Anxiety Of Reproduction, Boyd J. Petersen

Boyd J Petersen

First, Villier's L'Eve future employs a poetics of confusion, calling into question binary oppositions and destabilizing the narrative. Second, the novel is concerned with the production of art in a technological age, calling into question the notion of an "original" in a world of technological reproduction. Third, the novel is concerned with the ethics of male desire and the construction of women's bodies. Finally, the text critiques the emerging scientific worldview as an alternate religion, requiring faith, administering sacraments, and officiating rituals.

Jesus often used the powerful tool of story in his teaching and preaching ministry for the purpose of conveying spiritual truth. In Matthew chapter 25, Jesus tells the parable of the talents. This is a story of an exceedingly wealthy master who entrusts to his servants very large sums of money, then departs on a journey. After a long time the master returns and asks for an accounting from those servants concerning their actions ...


Formal Existential Ethics In The Thought Of Bernard Lonergan And Ignatius Of Loyola, Scott Kelley Apr 2006

Formal Existential Ethics In The Thought Of Bernard Lonergan And Ignatius Of Loyola, Scott Kelley

Scott Kelley

The underlying, operative question of my entire project concerns the formal relationship of ‘spirituality’ to ethics. I contend that spiritual experience is normative for ethics: one’s elected worldview orders feeling-values according to an appropriated scale of preference. To analyze the normative influence of spirituality on feeling-values, I begin by defining the term spirituality and then use an article written by Karl Rahner as a framework for identifying a particular form of ethics. I then examine the thought of Bernard Lonergan for an adequate account of subjectivity. With a viable anthropology in place, I examine Ignatius of Loyola’s Spiritual ...
