    The Quest- for Diversity.Amir Ali - 2018 - Journal of Human Values 25 (1):41-51.
    This article attempts to look at the quest for diversity by posing a question about how effective the concept has been in securing meaningful diversity in the public sphere of liberal polities. It distinguishes between diversity and difference to suggest that difference poses a greater challenge to liberal polities as compared to diversity. It then goes onto look at diversity in relation to democracy, especially in the context of a worsening climate of democracy across the world. The article suggests that (...)

  2. Revisiting the Gandhi–Ambedkar Debates Over ‘Caste’: The Multiple Resonances of Varņa.Ankur Barua - 2018 - Journal of Human Values 25 (1):25-40.
    While Gandhi and Ambedkar hold similar standpoints on the relation between religious orderings of the world and shapes of social existence, they sharply diverge, on certain occasions, regarding the question of what the crucial terms ‘caste’ and varņa refer to, so that they often seem to be talking past each other. Gandhi sought to cut through various traditional forms of Hindu socio-religious practices and develop a Hinduism which is grounded in the values of universal peace, love and benevolence. Ambedkar too (...)

  5. Human Values in Disposing the Dead: An Inquiry Into Cremation Technology.Vishwambhar Nath Prajapati & Saradindu Bhaduri - 2018 - Journal of Human Values 25 (1):52-65.
    Technologies and human values both have important bearing on human life and conditions. Unfortunately, the dialogue between them has remained inadequate, at best. While the discourse on human values recognizes various kinds and layers of values, including values that are universally relevant across societies and cultures, research on the interface between values and technology has predominantly focused on technology’s interactions with society-specific values. This article is an attempt to broaden the scope of this research by specifically taking the case of (...)

    A Nietzschean Odyssey: On the Trans-Valuation of Values.Aakash Singh Rathore - 2018 - Journal of Human Values 25 (1):15-24.
    This article places Friedrich Nietzsche’s call to trans-valuate values into a wider historical panorama, hearkening back to ethical orientations within both the Archaic and the Attic Greek world with respect to the unity of the virtues. It is argued that the unity of cognitive and bodily excellence, so central to the Greek world, and culminating in Aristotle’s ethics, functioned inchoately as the measure according to which Nietzsche evaluated values. Extrapolating from the phenomenon of rival perceptions regarding the paradigmatic sculpture of (...)

  7. Nothing ‘Mere’ to It: Reclaiming Subjective Accounts of Normativity of Law.S. Swaminathan - 2018 - Journal of Human Values 25 (1):1-14.
    If the bindingness of morality was to rest on something as ‘subjective’ as the non-cognitivist says it does, the grouse goes, and morality itself would come down crashing. Nothing less than an ‘objective’ source of normativity, it is supposed, could hold morality in orbit. Some of these worries automatically morph into worries about the projectivist model of normativity of law as well: one which understands the authority or normativity of law in terms of subjective attitudes taken towards the law. As (...)

    Comparison of Sporting Values in Europe: Effects of Social Institutionalization in Three European Territories.Bernard Massiera, Ben Mahmoud Imed & Long Thierry - 2018 - Journal of Human Values 24 (3):208-222.
    This study examines the representations conveyed by sports practitioners and the ideologies that govern sports institutions in three European countries. Sports organizations seem to construct identitary references for practitioners through the values they convey and the forms of sociability that they develop. This international study compares the practices and representations of sport based on a questionnaire sent to a sample of practitioners in Cardiff, Great Britain; Nice, France; and Pitesti, Romania. The findings indicate some differences. In Great Britain, sports practices (...)

    Tata as a Sustainable Enterprise: The Causal Role of Spirituality.Siddharth Mohapatra & Pratima Verma - 2018 - Journal of Human Values 24 (3):153-165.
    The year 2018 is the 150 anniversary of the Tata group. This article is an attempt to examine the role of spiritual family values in shaping Tata as a sustainable business. Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata, the founder of Tata, was a trained Parsi priest, who was greatly influenced by Humata or good thoughts, Hukhta or good words, and Hvarshta or good deeds toward others. Since its founding in 1868, the Tata leadership legacy has persistently followed those watchwords of the Zoroastrian faith. (...)

    Those Numbered Days: An Autoethnography on Living and Dying with a Cancer Patient.Suman Nath - 2018 - Journal of Human Values 24 (3):174-184.
    Doing research on cancer patients often involves painful journeys through the processes of involvement and detachment with research settings and participants. It is a self-transforming event to see close cared for people die. Yet frequently these experiences remain unreported in academic writing. The present article attempts to depict the narratives of attachment in the context of terminal illness and detachment as a consequence of death of the research participant, Jabbar, to reflect on such a journey. It focuses on the formation (...)

    From Institutions to Persons?: Rawls and the Subject of Justice.Renante D. Pilapil - 2018 - Journal of Human Values 24 (3):166-173.
    This article examines two potential Rawlsian arguments, namely the moral dualism argument and the educative effect of institutions argument as regards the extension of the primary subject of justice to personal conduct. The article makes two claims. First, while moral dualism is a logical step to make, it suffers from a potential conflict between the principles that apply to institutions and those that govern personal conduct. Second, despite the attractive features of the educative effect of institutions argument, an explanative gap (...)

    Empowerment Through Communication in Shakespeare’s Lucrece: Transitioning From Economic to Artistic Transactions.Pragyan Rath - 2018 - Journal of Human Values 24 (3):223-231.
    It is the metaphoric doubling of past into present that gave Renaissance ekphrastic representations its techniques of self-understanding. In effect, in the ekphrastic doubling of the past in the present, we notice that historicity becomes an inalienable part of its contemporary credibility. The reduction of distance between life and art, as evident in contemporary obsession with selfies and photographs, thus begins to become the central project of early modern ekphrasis, enhanced in the Renaissance. In sum, art becomes equivalent to legal (...)

    To Be or Not To Be: A Multidimensional Spirituality in the Workplace.Uday Shinde, H. James Nelson & Jay Shinde - 2018 - Journal of Human Values 24 (3):185-207.
    The present study focuses on furthering the theoretical foundations of the field of spirituality and religiosity in the workplace by providing a parsimonious definition, and multi-dimensional model for the construct of spirituality grounded in a pluralistic and historically authentic framework using the Sophia Perennis or Perennial Philosophy. In this process, the study addresses the dilemma of religiosity versus spirituality faced by researchers in this area, 175). It also addresses concerns regarding the potential conflicts related to spirituality and religiosity that could (...)

    Postmaterial Experience Economics.Douglas E. Booth - 2018 - Journal of Human Values 24 (2):83-100.
    A materialist view of economics presumes that from material possession flows the best of life’s satisfactions. A postmaterialist view claims instead that the best of human satisfactions come not just from material possessions but from the experience of life’s social, cultural and natural wonders as well. This article sets out a theory of postmaterial experience economics and uses survey research findings from the World Values Survey to establish whether or not postmaterial orientations to economic experience exist in global society and (...)

    Organizational Values: Positive, Ambivalent and Negative Interrelations in Work Organizations.Stephen Gibb & Calvin Burns - 2018 - Journal of Human Values 24 (2):116-126.
    The espousal of organizational values with an expectation of primarily positive consequences in leadership, employee performance and organizational change has often been recognized as overly simplistic, but giving a more complete and critical account of the interrelations between values and behaviour has proven challenging. This article describes a balanced and integrated positive, ambivalent and negative approach. The use of this PAN approach is described in the case of a health care organization. Evidence is given from a survey of 96 staff (...)

    Making High Committed Workplaces by Strong Organizational Values.Zoltán Krajcsák - 2018 - Journal of Human Values 24 (2):127-137.
    Organizational values determine the behaviour and norms expected in the organization. The more similar the attitude, the way of thinking and the value system among organizational members the stronger the culture is. The characteristics of personality can be well modelled with the concept of self-evaluation. The purpose of this article is to create a theoretical framework that reveals the relationships between self-evaluation dimensions, organizational values and employees’ commitment dimensions. Based on the results, affective commitment is supported by a high level (...)

    Through the Decreased Values Gap to Increased Organizational Effectiveness: The Mediating Role of Organizational Commitment.Ivan Malbaši´C., Marta Mas-Machuca & Frederic Marimon - 2018 - Journal of Human Values 24 (2):101-115.
    The purpose of this article is to clarify whether congruence between espoused and attributed organizational values in contemporary business circumstances is a necessity or just ‘nice to have’. Accordingly, two objectives are formulated: to investigate whether CEAOV has a direct impact on organizational effectiveness and to assess the mediating effect of organizational commitment between CEAOV and organizational effectiveness. The research was conducted within 15 Croatian companies. Data were collected through content analysis of the official websites of the companies, surveys of (...)

    The Outsourcing of Ethical Thinking.Erik Nordenhaug & Jack Simmons - 2018 - Journal of Human Values 24 (2):138-149.
    The teaching of professional rules, procedures and standards, as well as the existence of ethics committees and legal advisers to achieve desired behaviours for a given profession, produces an unforeseen by-product of altering the way individuals relate to ethics. The institutionalization of a moral voice, a kind of artificial conscience for the legally defined ‘artificial person’, tends to do the ethical thinking for the individual who thinks being moral means methodically following the professionally approved rules. Professionalism and the type of (...)

    The study explored the role of moral identity in the civic engagement of youth through ethical ideology. A total of 217 individuals comprising of 104 girls and 113 boys completed three scales, namely, moral identity scale, ethics position questionnaire and civic engagement scale.The results showed that moral identity internalization significantly predicted civic engagement attitude and moral identity symbolization significantly predicted civic engagement behaviour. Furthermore, idealism partially mediated the relationship between moral identity and civic engagement.

    Effacing the Dilemma of the Rumouring Subject: A Value-Oriented Approach Towards Studying Misinformation on Social Media.Rajiv Aricat - 2018 - Journal of Human Values 24 (1):56-65.
    Rumour has been part of collective human life for centuries. Communities deal with anxiety and make sense of the unknowable by mixing apprehensions with what is already known to them. With modernity, and in line with studies on a range of social phenomena, there have been efforts to develop a science on rumour. Most of these studies deal with rumour at the propositional level, such that the rumouring or rumour-rebutting subject invariably belongs to one of the two sides of the (...)

    Luxury: Not for Consumption but Developing Extended Digital Self.Varsha Jain - 2018 - Journal of Human Values 24 (1):25-38.
    Luxury consumption has grown exponentially across the globe. This growth was fuelled more by the emerging non-Western countries such as India. Consumers in this country are more tech savvy and are a new set of individuals who are totally different from the old, conventional consumers of the Western countries. These new individuals consume luxury to develop their digital self. Unfortunately, this area is not researched in the literature. This article fills this lacuna in extant literature. To address this issue, we (...)

    Efforts to encourage universal access to information and communication technologies have run into the problem that some individuals, for reasons of affordability, lack of awareness or preference, continue to be without subscriptions. This article examines the arguments commonly put forward in support of promoting broadband access, to determine whether they can justify universalizing access. It examines the ethical limits of government actions that encourage, enforce or coerce participation in socially beneficial programmes, while potentially overlooking consumer sovereignty and human autonomy.

    Do Celebrities Have It All? Context Collapse and the Networked Publics.Asha Kaul & Vidhi Chaudhri - 2018 - Journal of Human Values 24 (1):1-10.
    With the advent of social media and increase in networked publics, context collapse has emerged as a critical topic in the discussion of imagined audiences and blurring of the private and the public. The meshing of social contexts portends problematic issues as messages inadvertently reach unimagined audiences causing shame and leading to loss of ‘face’. In this article, we specifically study the impact of context collapse on some celebrities ‘who had it all’ yet, lost ‘it some’ to the world of (...)

    Social media affordances enable us to construct multi-faceted online identities and personal brands that we use to engage and interact with audiences—defined and ambiguous, intended and unintended. There is a need to examine such online identities and associated micro-celebrity practices by users who appeal to multiple audiences through the strategic use of online spaces. In this special issue, we explore performances of our digital selves and the role played by active and interactive audiences in meaning-making within complex socio-political contexts while (...)

But this article tries to explore the socialization aspect in customer knowledge management in a customer-centric industry, retail using social media.
