Business Ethics 09/26/2016 Service Learning Opportunities were discussed and chosen Unit 3  Modernity Lecture: (This slideshow will be available on Blackboard) This is a philosophy class. Michel Foucault (1926­1984)­ he wrote The Order of Things. It has often been compared to T.S.  Kuhn’s notion of paradigm. Epistemology: Philosophy that says how do humans know what they know? 800­1400C.E.­   Medieval Great Chain of Being o God­Monarch­Pope o Angels­Nobility­Cardinals and Bishops o Men­Minor Nobility­Priests o Women and children are lower than men on this food chain.  Everybody in this time period had some form of religion, which made it difficult to  separate church from state.  Male children surpassed their mothers in importance around their teen years  “Divinity is Supreme Reality”  All things are organic, useful, and vital o No matter where one fall on the Great Chain of Being, you have a purpose.  External Entelechy­ Related to other beings in the environment  Internal Entelechy­ Seek to achieve their reason in life.  Everyone is always in contact with o Fire o Water o Live Animals o Earth/Growing things o Death o Barter  New eras come with new technological advances  Printing press invented in 1436  Martin Luther o 95 theses on Church door of Wittenberg October 31, 1517  Jean Calvin  H. Zwingli th  Henry the 8    1600 Scientific Revolution o Empiricism o Atomism o Individualism o Reductionism o Things in nature only have use value o Materialism o Anthropocentric rather than Theocentric o Democracy, Equality, Progress o Mechanism  Technological Advances  Along with scientific advances came technological advances.  Line assembly created lots of jobs  The Romantic Movement o A critique of industrialization o Missing daily contact  What interested you most in this discussion? With what did you (dis)agree? What would  you add to the information presented? o The romantics movements belief that industrialization ruined us and our  connection to nature, though ridiculous, was rather interesting. o I disagree with the idea that the learning of this information was within a  discussion format. It was more related to an informational speech which  religiously touched on the persuasive. This is mainly my own attempt at humor. I  couldn’t see any way to agree with any information. o Perhaps more information on the romantic movement. Every other era had 1­3  slides whereas romantic only had the 1.  Of what importance is having this historical perspective to your own lives/to our own  time? o There is an importance in knowing where our current beliefs and advance came  from, and how that affect our personal choices in daily life. There is also  something related to knowing the past so that it isn’t repeated.  What are some characteristics of our current episteme(s)­ many of which are still  emerging? o Episteme­ a system of understanding or a body of ideas which give shape to the  knowledge of that time; from the Greek meaning of knowledge o If we are starting a new era, then it is an era surrounding equality, sustainability,  and independence from previous times.  Do you detect more than one main worldview in our time? How would you characterize  it/them? o Worldview­A collection of beliefs about life and the universe held by an  individual or a group. o Atheism is probably a more prominent worldview in today’s society, as many  people are moving away from the intangibility of religion. I would characterize  this as necessary, as religion has been the main cause of war. o There are certainly other worldviews of our time, as we are a complex species, but I can’t think of any at the moment.  What is your role/the role of the average citizen in bringing about a preferred direction  for culture/society? o As a citizen, it is my job to make sure that my culture or society is going in the  right direction.
