Also at the center of the pyramid was a chamber held for the pharaohs mummified body’s surrounded by their treasurer which they thought they could carry with them to the afterlife( Culture and Values, Cunningham /Reich, 2010 , chapter 1). What is the central concept of Taoism and what does it emphasize? The central concept of Taoism is harmony with natural process in the inner (within ourselves) and outer (our surrounding) world. Taoism begun in china over 25000 yrs ago created by a sage named Confucius he wanted to create a new and virtuous social order. Taoism teached and emphasized the limitation of human perceptio, passivity, resignation and simple guidelines to live a good life in harmony with nature and the universe (Culture & Values, Cunnigham/Reich, 2010, chapter 5, pg 123).
Everyone has they own beliefs and personal attitudes, but as a practitioner it is best for the children and setting if you follow the regulations set by the setting and also the parents wishes because you could influence a child down a path which isn’t conductive to their wellbeing. It is also
I have to act in the person’s best interest but instead of encouraging them to avoid risks I have to support them and enable them to taking part in activities. I have to act in the individuals best interest, keep them safe, carry out risk assessments, promote informed choices but also respect their decision and right to live their life as they choose. If the risk seems great to me I would document it and discuss the matter with my manager. Another area where duty of care dilemmas may arise are confidentiality issues. When a confidential information is shared with me and it concerns safeguarding and there is a possibility of harm or someone’s wellbeing is threathened I might have to make a decision and disclose this information.
#80: Compare and contrast Enlightenment and Romantic views of the relationship between God and the Individual. The Enlightenment saw God as rational and tried to explain events with reason; in contrast the Romantic Era explained events with their inner feelings and that God was as human views. Both sides saw God as an evident force that created earth. The difference is that the Romantic Era disagreed with deist views, which stated that the belief in God is based on reason rather than revelation and involving the view that God has set the universe in motion but does not interfere with how it runs. On one hand, the Enlightenment views saw God as a far away figure that did not interfere with the lives of humans.
You as a carer have a duty of care to keep the individual safe but you must always respect the individuals’ rights and choice, so this would cause a dilemma. For example if an individual no longer wishes to use her walking frame, but her care plan states she needs it to move around then you must ensure you encourage her to use it. In this situation you could carry out a risk assessment to ensure it is dealt with as safely as possible. You would need to explain the risks to her and make sure she understands. You could come to a compromise and suggest she uses a walking stick for a while instead to see if she can manage and in the meantime you can monitor the situation.
Morals concern what is right and wrong. Right and wrong usually vary depending on what is normal in a specific culture or society. Many people would agree that what is “right” is moral, but it is James Rachels that explores what makes something right. Rachels argues that it is the cultural normality’s of a society itself, that makes an action morally right, while others would disagree and claim that there is a set of “universal moral codes” that people should live by. In different societies and cultures what is morally right and wrong can be determined only within the individual mind of a person.
He said, in Summa Theologica, "Whatever man desires, he desires it under the aspect of good." Fulfilling our purpose is the only ‘good’ for humans. Natural law also implies precepts which should be followed but can also be expanded upon with secondary precepts, the primary being preserving life, having a well ordered society, producing offspring and learning about God, now these primary precepts may be expanded upon as long as they are not disobeyed. Aquinas argued that the self should be maintained. As a result, Natural Law supports certain virtues (prudence, justice, fortitude and temperance) that allow the self to fulfil its purpose.
They are a direct reflection of G-d's eternal law. The understanding, for this, is that our responsibility in life is to fulfil the wants of our creator and glorify him in the doing. Secondary precepts are dependent on our own judgement and are more likely to lead to wrong choices. The secondary precepts require experience, the use of reason and the exercise of wisdom. One may interpret the primary precepts in their own way which makes obeying g-d's rules more specific to each individual.
Taoism is the one I like least. It has too many vague mystical elements. It seems to me that both Buddhism and Taoism are inward looking, seeking enlightenment and self-improvement as the ultimate goal, with correct interactions with others serving as a means to achieving this self-fulfillment. But Confucianism is the opposite. It is outward looking, with the goal being to create a society of peace and justice, with self-improvement of individuals being the means to achieving that end.
Another reason why we believe Daoism to be better than Confucianism is they believe the ideal government should rule by using measures of correction, for example weapons of war may be used with crafty dexterity. However, the kingdom makes its own freedom from action and purpose. The final reason we believe Daoism is better than Confucianism is the focus on nature and natural images. Several examples: For Daoists, the path of water down a mountainside, following the route of least resistance without being told or forced, exemplifies Ziran, or spontaneous naturality. Daoists believed that by relaxing and allowing events to take their course everything will eventually fall into place, which is “Wu wei er bu wei” by doing nothing everything will be done.
