Ethik der Sozialen Arbeit: Eine Fallbearbeitung mit by Theresia Friesinger

By Theresia Friesinger

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Ethik, word: 1,0, Hochschule Esslingen, 18 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Eine klare ethische Einstellung und ethische Bewusstheit ist für die Soziale Arbeit nicht nur in einem interkulturellen Kontext grundlegend. Die Klärung und die Reflexion der eigenen ethischen place sind wichtige Voraussetzungen für eine qualitativ intestine gelingende Praxis. Dabei muss Soziale Arbeit den Wert und die Würde jedes Einzelnen achten, sowie auch die Rechte, die sich daraus ergeben. Um manchen Spagat leisten zu können, sollte Soziale Arbeit sich nicht verbiegen, sondern, ausgerüstet mit fachlichen und interkulturellen Kompetenzen, mit berufsethischen Prinzipien und einer guten Kooperation mit anderen Institutionen, klar Stellung beziehen. In dieser Hausarbeit werde ich die interkulturellen Kompetenzen der Sozialen Arbeit dahingehend berücksichtigen, da sie als Rüstzeug im Umgang mit Widersprüchlichkeiten bei ethnokulturellen Konflikten außerordentlich wichtig sind. Sie sollten schon jungen Menschen durch die Begegnung mit Fremdheit und Vielfalt in shape von interkulturellen Projekten wie dem Anti-Bias-Ansatz vermittelt werden. Zu diesem Ansatz werde ich kurz auf ein wichtiges bundesweites Projekt aufmerksam machen, welches Gleichheit und Differenz als Herausforderung für Bildung ansieht und eine vorurteilsbewusste Erziehung und Bildung schon im Kindergarten anstrebt.
Der unten vorgestellte Fall beschreibt beispielhaft eine ethisch interkulturelle Dilemmasituation. Anhand des Falles werden meine eigenen ethischen Werte, Prioritäten und Überzeugungen markiert, Menschenrechtsverletzungen untersucht und je nach Betroffenheit skaliert, um die entsprechenden vertrauensbildenden Maßnahmen im interkulturellen conversation unter der Heranziehung der Diskursethik von Jürgen Habermas und der Kommunikationstheorie von Niklas Luhmann einzuleiten. In der Schlussbetrachtung werde ich meine Grundposition mit einem systemischen Blick bekräftigen und auch den möglichen Lösungsweg danach ausrichten. Nach Luhmann kann es nicht nur einen Weg geben, es gibt immer auch eine andere Möglichkeit, eine andere Wahl . guy muss Kontingenzen erkennen, den eigenen blinden Fleck durch die Beobachtung zweiter Ordnung ergründen, den blinden Fleck im procedure erfassen und den Menschen beharrlich immer wieder mit Freundlichkeit begegnen. Manchmal ist es die einzige Waffe, die jemand noch zur Verfügung hat, wenn alle Argumente, selbst im „herrschaftsfreien Raum“ , von Habermas zunichte getreten werden.

Ethische Aspekte des animalischen Magnetismus: Am Beispiel by Regina Männle

By Regina Männle

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Ethik, be aware: 1,0, Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg (Institut für Neuere Deutsche Literatur), Veranstaltung: Literatur und Wissenschaft um 1800, 32 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: „Sie beschreiben ihren Zustand selber als den seeligsten, den sie jemals erfahren“ – so
berichtet Gotthilf Heinrich Schubert in der dreizehnten Vorlesung seiner Ansichten von der
Nachtseite der Naturwissenschaft (1814) über die Empfindungen von Patienten während
einer magnetischen Behandlung. Nicht nur diese Passage aus Schuberts Werk evoziert das
Bild einer harmonischen Therapie, in der der Magnetiseur seinen Patienten in einen heilsamen
und entspannenden Zustand, den so genannten Somnambulismus, versetzt, ihm
Kraft überträgt und ihn am Ende gestärkt wieder erwachen lässt. In der Tat ist die Heilung
von nervösen Störungen durch solch eine Behandlung durchaus denkbar – doch impliziert
dieser „seelige Zustand“, in dem der sufferer sich völlig in die Hände seines Magnetiseurs
begibt, nicht auch Risiken?
In den Ansichten ist von solchen möglichen Gefahren nicht die Rede; vielmehr schwärmt
Schubert wiederholt von der „wunderbare[n] Sympathie“ zwischen Magnetiseur und Patient.
Auch der Mediziner Carl Gustav Carus (1789-1869) zeigt sich fasziniert von dieser
besonders wohltuenden Beziehung und beschreibt sie als „eine paintings Vermählung zweier
Nerven“. Und Johann Wilhelm Ritter (1776-1810), Physiker und Philosoph, stellt sogar
eine Analogie zwischen Magnetkur und Liebesbeziehung her: Letztere sei wie eine gegenseitige
Magnettherapie, „beyde Theile [seien] sich Magnetiseur und Somnambüle“. Genau
diese Ansicht spiegelt sich beispielsweise in Achim von Arnims Erzählung Die Majoratsherren
(1820) wider: Zwischen dem Majoratsherrn und Esther besteht eine telepathische
Verbindung, durch die sie ihn an ihren Gedanken teilhaben lässt und die von beiden als
gegenseitige Liebe verstanden wird. Arnim verwendet das Motiv des Magnetismus also,
„um getrennte Seelen in Sehnsucht miteinander zu verbinden“.

The Ethical Technologist by David Tuffley

By David Tuffley

the moral Technologist is an exploration of what it really is to be a metamorphosis agent in this such a lot dynamic interval of human historical past. countless numbers, even hundreds of thousands of years sooner or later, it truly is most probably that the technological advances of the overdue twentieth and twenty first Centuries could be known in heritage as a pivotal element within the cultural evolution of humanity, the purpose at which the quick exponential development of know-how fairly all started.

Technologists operating within the early twenty first Century have the facility to do what people have by no means prior to been in a position to do. As a technologist, when you have this energy, it's crucial that you simply actually have a feel of accountability for the implications of that expertise. We owe it to offer and destiny generations to consider the consequences.

As grandiose because it may perhaps sound, technologists operating this day are growing the way forward for humanity. we want complete wisdom of the effect of what we're doing if we'll create the easiest destiny we will.
While know-how is in basic terms a device, this publication makes the case that the simplest type of expertise is that which is helping humans come to a fuller, if now not the fullest expression in their human power. In humanistic phrases, expertise may help someone to turn into ‘self-actualized’ or ‘self-realised’.

On the opposite hand, army expertise apart, the least defensible form of expertise is that which dehumanises humans via negligent layout and execution, or by means of deliberately decreasing them to a trifling cog in a laptop, an interchangeable unit of construction. we're discussing the type of expertise that forces humans to conform to it, instead of it adapting to the desires of individuals. there's nonetheless an excessive amount of of this type of expertise on the planet.

There are many the reason why people were such a success as a species; there's our tool-making skill, our propensity to paintings in groups, our artistic imaginations, our unending look for higher methods of doing issues, our omnivory (we can devour virtually anything), our conversation skill, our adaptability in numerous environments. this isn't the entire record.

But it's our instruments of ever-increasing energy and application that has lifted us well past the features of our fellow primates. people are skillful tool-makers, and our info expertise is likely to be our most interesting tool-set but.
More than simply inanimate gadgets, info know-how is an extension of our physique and brain. It we could us expand our skill to imagine and strategy details well past our organic mind, out into the surroundings the place it turns into our agent.

Today, the person minds of billions of individuals have merged to shape a pool of collective cognition and information garage that we name the web. Granted, the cognitive services of the web within the moment decade of the twenty first Century are restricted, yet that it set to alter within the a long time to return. just a couple of generations in the past, the web because it now's could were unbelievable to all however the such a lot ahead considering and imaginitive.

This skill to push our minds out into the realm didn't commence with info know-how. now we have been doing it for lots of millions of years. The cognitive scientist Andy Clark reviews that mind scans convey that should you have been to select up a device, for instance, a backyard rake and begin to take advantage of it to collect leaves, inside of a brief interval your mind could have mapped the tines of the rake to be extensions of your palms. this can be referred to as haptic contact.

The pcs that we've got come to rely on are only one other software that we venture our minds into and use to outsource a few of our cognitive initiatives. think if you happen to misplaced your own desktop. it might be like having a stroke. all of sudden your total cognitive means has reduced. a part of your mind is long past, and also you would certainly consider the shortcoming of it.
