In agreement with all the previous one, the professional ethics is a branch of the moral philosophy, directed to establish the norms that must govern the behavior of the people who practice a profession, within own exercise of the same. Mentioning Fernando Sodi Pallares, " The action that does not reveal the light of the reason, is blind; the reason, without action, is estril". If the codes of professional ethics tend to be joint of rules established by the unions to normar the actions of the people who exert a profession, it is valid to ask itself which is the light of the reason illuminates that them or, which is the same, which is the philosophical system that gives to rise and sustenance to them. Read additional details here: Mark Stevens. Of a general way, the different ethical systems elaborated by the best thinkers from the humanity, can be classified in three great groups: The ethical calls of goods or aims, the ethical denominated systems formal and the ethical axiolgicas materials. Much people govern her daily life by a behavior that falls within the Hedonstico system, corresponding to a ethics of goods in which the pleasure like the maximum good is considered to which it tends the human nature. Other people take care of a eudomonismo rather, that considers that the aim last of the man it is the happiness (Aristotle); the ethical system of Santo Toms de Aquino is a teocntrico eudomonismo, that it postulates for the man, like last aim, Or the Supreme one, Or the Absolute one, whose possession will be the happiness to which it tends the human being. I believe that the professional ethics, we know as it we handled and it, does not come properly from any of these philosophical systems. Speaking now of the formal systems ethical, most representative and, more important, she is due to Emmanuel Kant, content in his " Critic of the Prctica" Reason;.
A big change has come over our house in recent weeks since we packed Son #1 off to college. It’s changed the whole dynamic of the household to have “only” three kids around and we’re all still adjusting to it. He isn’t too far away, about a five hour drive, but far enough that he hasn’t come home yet since his departure.
We are reaching the end of the summer rush at the store. Most people who have plans to travel, go hiking, mountaineering, or kayaking, have now equipped themselves and the store’s been quite quiet for a couple of weeks.
Had a very nice day out with the kids yesterday. As always, it took us a little while to get out of the house. Making sure that everyone has a book to read in the car, that we have some CDs that we all can agree on (or at least some CDs that nobody will actually rip out of the CD player and throw out of the window in a fit of extreme irritation — not that I’d know anything about that) that we had sweaters in case it turns out to be a cold day, that we have some suntan lotion in case it turns out to be a hot day etc etc…
No, that wasn’t the fun bit.
Through the next few days, we do need to spend some time making sure the kids have something to do between camps. One of the day camps was very short-term, and the other one doesn’t start until after the weekend, so we have a few kids on our hands with nothing much to do. It’ll take a little shuffling of both my schedule and my wife’s schedule in order to make sure that somebody is at home for much of the day.
Now that I’ve introduced the children, I should tell you a little about my wife. No trouble at all coming up with the name for her; I’m a big fan of John Mortimer’s Rumpole books, in which Horace Rumpole, the distinguished lawyer, refers to his wife as She Who Must Be Obeyed. I believe that Rumpole is quoting H. Rider Haggard’s story, She. So from here on in, my wife will be referred to similarly, as She Who Must Be Obeyed.
I decided that it’s okay to talk about our family but just not to use names. So let me introduce you to my kids; number one, number two, number three, and of course number four.
I had an unusual experience in the store today. Usually our customers spend a couple of hundred dollars; a pair of boots, a tent, a good-quality backpack, that kind of thing. Today we had a couple come in who ended up spending over $6,000. They are heading for Botswana next month and they planned to travel around for the next year in southern Africa. I guess they’re starting in Botswana, partly because of that series of books, The Number One Ladies Detective Agency, which was based there.
I’m really not sure where to start this blog. I’ve been wanting to start a blog for quite a while, partly to keep a diary for myself as to what I’ve been up to, and partly to share some of my thoughts for anyone else who might be interested. So, here’s post number one.
