The field of ethics (or moral philosophy) involves systematizing, defending, and recommending concepts of right and wrong behavior. Philosophers today usually divide ethical theories into three general subject areas: metaethics, normative ethics, and applied ethics. Metaethics investigates where our ethical principles come from, and what they mean. Are they merely social inventions? Do they involve more than expressions of our individual emotions? Metaethical answers to these questions focus on the issues of universal truths, the will of God, the role of reason in ethical judgments, and the meaning of ...
to the late 19th Century, it was a central part of Western education, filling the need to train public speakers and writers to move audiences to action with arguments. The very act of defining has itself been a central part of rhetoric, appearing among Aristotle 's Topics . The word is derived from the Greek ( rhētorikós ), "oratorical", from ( rhḗtōr ), "public speaker", related to ( rhêma ), "that which is said or spoken, word, saying", and ultimately derived from the verb ( erô ), "to speak, say". In its broadest sense, rhetoric concerns human discourse. Contemporary studies of ...

What Causes People to Be Successful in Their Careers? Part III ...
we asked the question: What causes people to be successful in their careers? I stated that I believe that understanding and developing “soft side skills,” and not just technical skills, will provide the best opportunities for a successful career. We reviewed evidence from leading universities that much more than half of job success comes from people skills. Many people who pursue a professional career think of their “work” as their technical expertise, but as one moves up in an organization, it becomes clear that dealing with people is of at least equal significance. Communication as a Premier People Skill We also noted that ... market research, surveys and trends


The Wounded U.S. Newspaper Industry Lost $7.5 Billion in ...

And even online advertising was down 1.8 percent to $3.1 billion. Newspapers are shuttering their print editions, laying off staff, or closing entirely as a result of this severe contraction in revenues brought on by the double whammy of economic recession and competition from the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
[W. DANIEL HILLIS:] I have always envied Alexander the Great, because he had Aristotle as a personal tutor. In those days, Aristotle knew pretty much everything there was to know. Even better, Aristotle understood the mind of Alexander. He understood which topics interested Alexander, what Alexander knew and did not know, and what kinds of explanations Alexander preferred. Aristotle had been a student of Plato, and he was himself a great teacher. We know from his writings that he was full of examples, explanations, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Gülen movement raises a new renaissance generation
There is a different dimension to Gülen that arouses excitement. Gülen’s words are turned into action in the practical world by a community of action,” says Dr. B. Jill Carroll. On a book-signing visit to Turkey for her new book about the Gülen movement titled, “A Dialogue of Civilizations: Gülen’s Islamic Ideals and Humanistic Discourse,” Carroll is pleased with the interest that her short 120-page book has aroused. She regards her book as a continuation of the dialogue initiated by Gülen himself. While explaining that she establishes a dialogue between an atheist like Sartre and a believer like Gülen on the basis of a sense of ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

12: In recent decades, American educators, especially those ensconced in schools of education, have relied heavily on linear flow models for improving educational practice. Such models make most sense in managing large-scale civil engineering projects or developing new or improved products for a variety of mass markets. By serendipity or system, researchers discover valuable properties or techniques. Developers prepare them for the market, ensuring that they are tested and validated for performance, safety, and cost. Management allocates capital to the innovation and develops production lines and distribution channels. ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
Selected Criticisms of Aristole's Ethics
as guidance about what is the good life, what precisely one ought to do, or even by what standard one should try to decide what one ought to do, this is too circular to be very helpful.  And though Aristotle's account is filled out with detailed descriptions  of many of the virtues, moral as well as intellectual, the air of indeterminacy persists.  We learn the names of the pairs of contrary vices that contrast with each of the virtues, but very little about where or how to draw the dividing lines, where or how to fix the mean.  As Sidgwick says, he "only indicates the whereabouts of ...
Father of logic - Plato or Aristotle? | LinkedIn Answers | LinkedIn
Aristotles IS recognised as the ‘father’ of the Western concept of ‘logic’ (reason by deduction) and true he was the first one to create a coherent system of logic’s rules. However, his speculations and reasoning were made within a specific culture that had the Platonic Academy as its centre (i.e. it is not possible to think of Aristotles without Plato, somebody could say that Aristotles is a ‘logical’ continuation of or rather consequence from Plato ;) ). Moreover, as Aristotles himself recognises, some of his ‘syllogism’ (i.e. deduction) or inferential system ...
Why has the Advertising/Affiliate section faded
A: Because anyone offering sound advice based on experience gets accused of self promotion and has all their posts deleted. Q: But surely someone who knows what they are doing helping others through a free forum is a good thing? A: I'd tend to agree, but you'll notice that most of the people that used to post helpful tips and advice have not posted here for ages Q: Why is that?
