Thinking through moral dilemmas in pursuit of justice

In our complex world, how can we learn to think through moral dilemmas in the pursuit of justice? How do the words we associate with morality impact our understanding and application of it? In short, how can we enact equal measures of fairness among family members, friends, and strangers? These are the troubling questions that guide Dr. Otto Toews as he critically engages with the language of morality and uncovers what is lacking in our conversations about fairness. Using a Principled Thinking Model for resolving everyday moral dilemmas, Toews identifies five basic categories that are necessary for moral thinking: duty, rights, motive, desert, and justice. Combining this research with Nel Nodding’s seminal work on caring, Toews concludes that while it is vital that we practice thinking through moral dilemmas, the key to attaining universal justice and fairness lies in our sense of fellow feeling, or empathy. Toews argues that without the urgency and energy prompted by a sense of concern for others, thinking through moral dilemmas will remain insufficient in fostering an ethical world. Throughout the book, Toews augments his research by providing hypothetical scenarios involving two teachers, Bill and Mae. They engage in spirited debates over how duty, rights, motive, desert, and justice apply to issues such as education, cyber bullying, mental illness, reconciliation, and more. Again and again, Bill and Mae are caught up by the power of empathy, demonstrating the urgent need to care for others. It is through their dialogues that Toews has designed a brilliant way for us to witness moral thinking in action, giving us the language we need to navigate it, and preparing us for the countless types of conflicts we encounter every day.

Even with enormous potential, most people set out unequipped to achieve their goals and dreams. Just as there are laws that govern nature, there are also laws that govern performance and achievement. Unfortunately, people are either unaware of them, and therefore do not align themselves accordingly, or they simply are not applying them consistently. As a result, many people seek to achieve goals, but find that the results they desire constantly elude them. The reality is that you have greatness within. Your potential is enormous. However, in order to unleash your potential and achieve your goals, you must understand and apply the governing laws that turn dreams into reality. There are proven laws of success that starts with the way you think. This book provides simple strategies and tactics for achieving success. Over the last few hundred years of recorded history, the common denominators that lead to personal achievement have consistently surfaced. By changing your thinking about yourself and by applying the 13 laws within this book, you can begin making your goals a reality. Within the pages of this book are powerful stories and examples of success and failure that will inspire all who read them. TJ shows you what habits must be formed and what steps must be taken to achieve any goal you set. Simple and concise, “If You Think You Can!” is a source that will help you achieve whatever you want in life.

What happens if I drop an ant? What books are bad for you? What percentage of the world's water is contained in a cow? The Oxbridge undergraduate interviews are infamous for their unique ways of assessing candidates, and from these peculiar enquiries, professors can tell just how smart you really are. John Farndon has collected together 75 of the most intriguing questions taken from actual admission interviews and gives full answers to each, taking the reader through the fascinating histories, philosophies, sciences and arts that underlie each problem. This is a book for everyone who likes to think they're clever, or who thinks they'd like to be clever. And cleverness is not just knowing stuff, it's how laterally, deeply and interestingly you can bend your brain. Guesstimating the population of Croydon, for example, opens a chain of thought from which you can predict the strength of a nuclear bomb ...and that's just the start of it.

Typische Programmieraufgaben kreativ lösen am Beispiel von C++ Von der Aufgabe zur Lösung – so gehen Sie vor Probleme analysieren und schrittweise bearbeiten Systematisches Vorgehen lernen und anwenden Aus dem Inhalt: Strategien zur Problemlösung Eingabeverarbeitung Statusverfolgung Arrays Zeiger und dynamische Speicherverwaltung Klassen Rekursion Wiederverwendung von Code Rekursive und iterative Programmierung Denken wie ein Programmierer Die Herausforderung beim Programmieren besteht nicht im Erlernen der Syntax einer bestimmten Sprache, sondern in der Fähigkeit, auf kreative Art Probleme zu lösen. In diesem einzigartigen Buch widmet sich der Autor V. Anton Spraul genau jenen Fähigkeiten, die in normalen Lehrbüchern eher nicht behandelt werden: die Fähigkeit, wie ein Programmierer zu denken und Aufgaben zu lösen. In den einzelnen Kapiteln behandelt er jeweils verschiedene Programmierkonzepte wie beispielsweise Klassen, Zeiger und Rekursion, und fordert den Leser mit erweiterbaren Übungen zur praktischen Anwendung des Gelernten auf. Sie lernen unter anderem: Probleme in diskrete Einzelteile zerlegen, die sich leichter lösen lassen Funktionen, Klassen und Bibliotheken möglichst effizient nutzen und wiederholt verwenden die perfekte Datenstruktur für eine Aufgabenstellung auswählen anspruchsvollere Programmiertechniken wie Rekursion und dynamischen Speicher einsetzen Ihre Gendanken ordnen und Strategien entwickeln, um bestimmte Problemkategorien in Angriff zu nehmen Die Beispiele im Buch werden mit C++ gelöst, die dargestellten kreativen Problemlösungskonzepte gehen aber weit über die einzelnen Programmiersprachen und oft sogar über den Bereich der Informatik hinaus. Denn wie die fähigsten Programmierer wissen, handelt es sich beim Schreiben herausragender Quelltexte um kreative Kunst und der erste Schritt auf dem Weg zum eigenen Meisterwerk besteht darin, wie ein Programmierer zu denken. Über den Autor: V. Anton Spraul hat über 15 Jahre lang Vorlesungen über die Grundlagen der Programmierung und Informatik gehalten. In diesem Buch fasst er die von ihm dabei perfektionierten Verfahren zusammen. Er ist auch Autor von »Computer Science Made Simple«.
