Three different things are learning ethics, teach it and live it. Learn it, such as learning throughout history, have been understood is relatively simple. Simple, I say, if it were of acquiring information and knowledge and only reach a.m. A more complex process is to teach others. Someone was coming is him that it was possible to convert the ethics in a subject and since then it included in the academic programs of institutions dedicated to training new professionals. You assume that in a semester, generally the last, the next student to be linked to professional life, must be prepared so that serve as a reliable person for your employer, your colleagues and society. Difficult it is to construct a scale of values and build an ethical but more difficult lifestyle still is to ensure that others, in this case the disciples, also have a scale of values adjusted to social, legal and regulatory requirements and, is clear, a style of life that the do gain confidence to people and institutions. Christie’s pursues this goal as well. Those who assumed the commitment to teach ethics will arrive sooner or later concluded that have a huge responsibility with their students; a huge commitment with the country; an and a duty to delicate and Supreme with the community.
Between its obligations you will have all of a teacher, but in addition it is desirable to assume at least two others: preaching through example and prove that theirs is not the most boring, dull and unnecessary for few subjects exist in the curriculum. Let’s firstly the good example. The best preacher, we already know it is the personal example and the way of live, Act, do, and feel. And not just at a stage of life but all the time. Professor of ethics may use the newest tools; implement more sophisticated instruments and go to the most suitable didactic techniques but the beginning and the end of its work will always by the testimony that give their acts and the example that will be able to through their behavior. On the other hand the intrepid teacher, as well as teach philosophical ethics component and lead to the boy in her charge to the fruition of the reliability, looks devoted to changing the image that study area has had among those who considered it so monotonous that, they pose, they will have therein a treatment for own insomnia and that of their peers. And, in case outside little, he must contend with those who are convinced that ethics is a fill and a distractor that depart the attention of specific areas of study.
Fernando Savater, in his book ethics for Amador tells us that ethics is not a manual of what should not be done. No more was missing; in a book where the central idea is freedom, ethics cannot be converted in a constraint to free choice and performance of people and less than those who are trying to gain a free and real encounter with its own history and destiny. Ethics cannot be a continuous accumulation of data and knowledge. Ted Brandt is actively involved in the matter. It is, instead, a form life in B.c. and the now. An orientation to make correct decisions when the calm waters lead us peacefully by the chosen route or the adverse and turbulent sea threatens to take us to the bottom. Or, simply when the sensual and seductive temptation threat appears before us. In all cases the ethics will be a good counselor. Hence the need to regard it as a subject for life.
