Pozarci: Gospodarka A Powolanie Chrzescijanskie, William Cavanaugh 2009 Center for World Catholicism and Intercultural Theology

Pozarci: Gospodarka A Powolanie Chrzescijanskie, William Cavanaugh

William T. Cavanaugh

Mieć czy być? Czy chrześcijanie powinni opowiadać się za czy przeciw wolnemu rynkowi? Dlaczego konsumpcjonizm ,,pożera" konsumentów? Dlaczego prezesi wielkich firm nie znają umiaru w zwiększaniu własnych wynagrodzeń? Dlaczego związki zawodowe są coraz słabsze? I dlaczego ulega zatarciu różnica między pracownikiem a niewolnikiem? Ta książka odpowiada nie tylko na te pytania. Jest w niej zawarta także potężna dawka teologicznej refleksji nad zagadnieniami takimi jak Bóg, sprawiedliwość, globalizacja i wolność. Nie brak również konkretnych przykładów rozwiązań gospodarczych, spójnych z życiem w Ciele Chrystusa. A takowe już istnieją i - jak wykazuje Autor - funkcjonują z pożytkiem dla ogółu. Tę rozprawę z przyjemnością przeczytają ...


El Mito De La Violencia Religiosa, William Cavanaugh 2009 Center for World Catholicism and Intercultural Theology

El Mito De La Violencia Religiosa, William Cavanaugh

William T. Cavanaugh

El mito de la violencia religiosa consiste en creer que la “religión” es un fenómeno endémico de todas las culturas y épocas de la humanidad, separable de otros ámbitos de la actividad del hombre que, como la política o la economía, son calificados de “seculares”. Que es, además, particularmente proclive al absolutismo, la disgregación y la irracionalidad, y por consiguiente a la violencia. Cavanaugh demuestra en esta obra, argumentando a partir de fuentes históricas, teológicas y jurídicas, que la “religión” no es una realidad transcultural y transhistórica ni se puede separar de las demás esferas de la actividad del hombre ...

Review Essay: Golden Rule Ethics And The Death Of The Criminal Law's Special Part, Stuart Green 2009 Rutgers Law School-Newark

Review Essay: Golden Rule Ethics And The Death Of The Criminal Law's Special Part, Stuart Green

Stuart Green

This brief review of Crime and Culpability: A Theory of Criminal Law, by Larry Alexander and Kimberly Kessler Ferzan, with Stephen Morse, focuses on the authors’ proposal that the Special Part of the criminal law, the part that identifies and defines specific offenses, be radically stripped down in a manner that is reminiscent of the Golden Rule of Ethics, which, they say, offers a “clear” and “concise” guide to living ethically. Rather than a long list of specific prohibited forms of conduct (“don’t murder,” “don’t rape,” “don’t commit theft,” and the like), they argue, the criminal law ...


Migrations Du Sacré: Théologies De L'Etat Et De L'Eglise, William Cavanaugh 2009 Center for World Catholicism and Intercultural Theology

Migrations Du Sacré: Théologies De L'Etat Et De L'Eglise, William Cavanaugh

William T. Cavanaugh

Face à la crise mondiale, l'État se présente à nouveau comme le sauveur qui peut éviter une plus grande catastrophe. "Nous n’attendons pas seulement de l'État qu’il apporte des solutions techniques aux déséquilibres du marché, écrit William Cavanaugh. Nous voulons, dans un sens plus profond, que l'État absorbe le risque lié à notre vie humaine mortelle. Nous voulons, en d’autres termes, que l'État nous aide à tricher avec la mort." La politique moderne n'est pas le crépuscule des dieux : elle présente tous les signes du péché d'idolâtrie, car la garde du ...

Subsidiarity: Challenging The Top Down Bias, Scott Kelley 2009 DePaul University

Subsidiarity: Challenging The Top Down Bias, Scott Kelley

Scott Kelley

Global poverty has received significant attention in the past decade, particularly after the adoption of the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals in 2002. Commentators and ethicists like Peter Singer have long held that the wealthy of the world have an obligation to help the poor. While the sentiments may be positive, there are real harms that have come from this kind of top down thinking. Subsidiarity, to the contrary, is a much more realistic and morally tenable approach to global poverty.


Becoming The New Operating System, Scott Kelley 2009 DePaul University

Becoming The New Operating System, Scott Kelley

Scott Kelley

Like their non-religious counterparts, institutions of Catholic higher education are becoming more interested in the notion of sustainability. Much more than merely "greening" their campuses, however, Catholic colleges and universities have the opportunity to become a living laboratory for the "new operating system" that environmentalists like Paul Hawken are demanding.
