  1. Field Structure of the Value Concept “Kindness” in the English Language.Asiyat Abdulkadyrova & Khaibat Kadachieva - 2022 - Wisdom 21 (1):131-138.
    The aim of this paper is to structurize the concept of KINDNESS representing a part of the British value system. The research is conducted on the basis of media texts evincing the most dynamic source of creating and developing social values. The analysis of language facts proves that the given value concept represents a complicated structure including nominative, informational and interpretative fields. The nominative field is represented by the basic lexeme kindness and its synonyms. Semantic components acting as cognitive features (...)

  2. Agamben’s ‘Bare Life’ and Grossman’s Ethics of Senseless Kindness.Tim Christiaens - 2022 - Journal of European Studies 1 (Online):Online.
    In his early works, Giorgio Agamben argues that some Auschwitz inmates practised a ‘silent form of resistance’ by shutting themselves off from the world until nothing could harm them. I argue that this conception of ‘bare life’ is both too abstract and too individualistic. Agamben’s idea of bare life’s resistance first neglects the socio-historical context that has produced particular instances of it, effectively barring the investigation into how to avoid future occurrences of sovereign violence. Agamben, second, emphasizes the potential for (...)

  3. Young Children’s Conceptualisations of Kindness: A Thematic Analysis.Nicole Perkins, Patrick Smith & Paul Chadwick - 2022 - Frontiers in Psychology 13.
    Although there is much interest in the development of prosocial behaviour in young children, and many interventions that attempt to cultivate kindness in children, there is a paucity of research exploring children’s lived experiences of kindness and including their voices. In this study, children’s understanding of kindness is approached through qualitative interviews using puppets. Interviews were conducted with 33 children aged 5-6 years in 3 schools in the United Kingdom. Through thematic analysis, 4 themes were developed: doing things for others, (...)

  4. Does Kindness Towards Robots Lead to Virtue? A Reply to Sparrow’s Asymmetry Argument.Mark Coeckelbergh - 2021 - Ethics and Information Technology 1 (Online first):649-656.
    Does cruel behavior towards robots lead to vice, whereas kind behavior does not lead to virtue? This paper presents a critical response to Sparrow’s argument that there is an asymmetry in the way we (should) think about virtue and robots. It discusses how much we should praise virtue as opposed to vice, how virtue relates to practical knowledge and wisdom, how much illusion is needed for it to be a barrier to virtue, the relation between virtue and consequences, the moral (...)

  6. The Grand Maitreya Project of Mongolia: A Colossal Statue-Cum-Stupa for a Happy Future of ‘Loving ♡Kindness’.Isabelle Charleux - 2020 - Contemporary Buddhism 21 (1-2):73-132.
    ABSTRACT This paper questions the current construction of a 54 metres statue of Maitreya against a 108 metres stupa in the steppe south of Ulaanbaatar, that will stand at the edge of a new ‘eco-city,’ Maidar City. The Grand Maitreya Project was initiated in 2009 by H. Battulga, businessman and MP. The project aims to be ‘one of the largest Buddhist complex in the world,’ and now is a ‘National project for reviving traditional Buddhist education and culture.’ I propose to (...)

Ruth’s decision to stand beside Naomi demonstrates the value of solidarity in creating a hopeful future for families and communities. Naomi’s role in bringing Ruth and Boaz together (...)

  10. The Trial of Darkness. On The Kindness of The Blind by Wisława Szymborska. From Metapoetic Reflection to Anthropology.Alicja Mazan-Mazurkiewicz - 2013 - Acta Universitatis Lodziensis. Folia Litteraria Polonica 22 (4):157-171.
    This paper is a proposal to study the poem Uprzejmość niewidomych by Wisława Szymborska in order to question its apparent non-obviousness. By pointing out aspects which may cause a person to wonder the reader is led to formulating specific questions. Answers to them may be found in the context of all lyrical works by Szymborska. Problems depicted in this poem transgress literal concerns such as the power of poetry and relationships between the poet and readers. The anthropological dimension of the (...)

  11. Sentimentalism and the Is-Ought Problem.Noriaki Iwasa - 2011 - Croatian Journal of Philosophy 11 (3):323-352.
    Examining the moral sense theories of Francis Hutcheson, David Hume, and Adam Smith from the perspective of the is-ought problem, this essay shows that the moral sense or moral sentiments in those theories alone cannot identify appropriate morals. According to one interpretation, Hume's or Smith's theory is just a description of human nature. In this case, it does not answer the question of how we ought to live. According to another interpretation, it has some normative implications. In this case, it (...)

She has spearheaded worldwide efforts to improve the treatment of animals in manufacturing, entertainment, and elsewhere.

    : The topic of organ transplantation is examined from the perspective of three authors: Robert Bellah, Jeremy Rifkin, and Margaret Jane Radin. Introduced by reflections on the development of the justification of organ transplantation within the Roman Catholic community and the various themes raised by the historical study in Richard Titmuss's The Gift Relationship, the paper examines how and in what ways the possible commodification of organs will affect our society and the impacts this may have on the supply of (...)

  19. Ultimatum Decision-Making: A Test of Reciprocal Kindness.David L. Dickinson - 2000 - Theory and Decision 48 (2):151-177.
    While fairness is often mentioned as a determinant of ultimatum bargaining behavior, few data sets are available that can test theories that incorporate fairness considerations. This paper tests the reciprocal kindness theory in Rabin (1993 Incorporating fairness into game theory and economics, The American Economic Review 83: 1281-1302) as an application to the one-period ultimatum bargaining game. We report on data from 100 ultimatum games that vary the financial stakes of the game from 1 to 15. Responder behavior is strongly (...)

  20. Liberalism, Communitarianism and the Space Between: In Praise of Kindness.Kenneth A. Strike - 2000 - Journal of Moral Education 29 (2):133-147.
    This paper argues that liberalism and communitarianism provide views of the moral life that are both too narrow. Communitarianism roots the moral life in the norms of particular communities. Liberals argue that communitarianism is likely to be parochial and sectarian. Liberalism has sought for norms that are universal and generalizable. Communitarians claim that liberalism is a "view from nowhere" that is more likely to produce rootlessness and anomie than justice . This paper seeks for a "space between". Its principle claim (...)

    To omit the word kindness in medical practice and journals, in favour of fashionable notions such as "care" and "skills", is not in patients' interests. Health professionals may come to the view that natural kindness (the same as that found in the world outside medicine), because it is absent by name in medical skills courses' or other official edicts, is somehow unscientific and unworthy of their attention. As lay-people know, it is an essential adjunct to all medical management, sometimes the (...)

  23. International Aid and the Scope of Kindness.Garrett Cullity - 1994 - Ethics 105 (1):99-127.
    This paper argues that it is morally wrong for the affluent not to contribute money or time to famine relief. It begins by endorsing an important methodological line of objection against the most prominent philosophical advocate of this claim, Peter Singer. This objection attacks his strategy of invoking a principle the acceptability of which is apparently based upon its conformity with "intuitive" moral judgements in order to defend a strongly counterintuitive conclusion. However, what follows is an argument for that counterintuitive (...)

  24. The Compatibility of Justice and Kindness.Daniel Putman - 1990 - Philosophy 65 (254):516 - 517.
    In ‘Virtue and Character’ A. D. M. Walker claims that kindness and justice are incompatible in certain important ways and that a person can be kind or just without possessing the other virtue. Walker argues that virtues must lead to ‘effective and intelligent action’ and that a virtue ceases to exist if ‘it leads to violation of the minimal requirements of any other virtue’. On this view kindness and justice function independently to produce effective action. Kindness requires a direct caring (...)
