An idea worth spreading

"Si la filosofía no se mezcla con el mundo, y confunde un poco a los hombres, de nada sirve hacerlos pensar, nada se conseguirá"

“If philosophy do not mix with the world, and make a little confuse in man, is not worth to make them think, it will be useless"

Creativity, ideas that change societies, philosophy and the implication in human life, education, ethics and how can it be applied in decision making, economy, wealth distribution, etc.

¿How to change adult professional attitudes?
Tank´s Carl and Bradley for your questions, ideas and reflections, my concern in young adults is because I work with them at undergraduate and graduate level, and often see the influence of a materialistic world that provoke them to justify means to achieve their goals.

Is it important to teach ethics in graduate school?
Gracias Jaime por tu respuesta. Coincido contigo respecto al descubrimiento de la ética a partir de experiencias cotidianas. Y me gusta buscar esos reflejos de la Verdad, Bondad, Belleza y Justicia en las realidades humanas. De ahí mi interés en reflexionar sobre el tema. La ética para mi, es lo que mencionas, un ejercicio permanente, que va forjando precisamente un estilo de vida. Nuestro reto como educadores, es lograr inspirar a que se quiera vivir esta experiencia de verlo como ejercicio y estilo de vida más que cúmulo de conocimientos. Gracias de nuevo.

Tank's RH and Mark Kurtz for your comment's. I agree that one of the challenges that ethic professors have, is to make the use of ethics arguments useful in day to day decision making, as relevant as a cost analysis. Incentives and long term vision to promote these references that can and will make a better society.
