Éstas denotan tensiones dialécticas entre lo que el individuo considera su responsabilidad directa y las condiciones en las cuales se ve obligado a actuar y no puede controlar. En otras palabras, se cree actuar con buenas intenciones y razones legítimas y termina determinado por una cadena de acciones que lo llevan a un colapso del significado moral, tanto de sí mismo y del valor del acto en sí, lo cual se convierte en un argumento para justificar la violencia de sus actos. Proponemos que la ética puede comprender estas tensiones si se toman en cuenta las problemáticas existenciales internas de la persona que decide, como son la angustia y la desesperación en conjunto con las aportaciones de las teorías del comportamiento y la comunicación organizacional. Para ello se analiza el caso de las decisiones del fraude financiero llevado a cabo por Bernard Madoff.</p> 2018-10-25T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://www.journalpc.org/ojs/index.php/jpc/article/view/24 The Individual and Society: the Social Role of Shame 2019-01-15T05:16:54+00:00 Bina Nir binan@yvc.ac.il <p class="Academic"><span lang="EN-US">The feeling of shame has a longstanding role in the relations between individual and society. In this article we shall distinguish between shame and shaming and try to understand the social and cultural function of shame. Even though shame is a feeling that has a physiological basis, the way in which we experience emotions differs from culture to culture since it is the meaning that we attach to an event that evokes the emotion rather than the event itself (Ben-Ze’ev 1996). In order to understand the phenomenon of social shaming in the present we must examine the social origins of this phenomenon in Western culture. The methodology most fitting to examine this cultural construct is the genealogical method, by way of which we shall come to see that shaming is not an essentially new phenomenon in Western culture, but only a new mode of expressing old patterns. </span></p> 2018-10-25T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://www.journalpc.org/ojs/index.php/jpc/article/view/26 Nature as Convention: A Future Moral Relationship With Humans? 2019-01-15T05:16:51+00:00 Massimo Vittorio editor@journalpc.org <div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>The paper focuses on the relationship between nature and eth- ics, particularly by considering nature as a convention, the result of a so- cial agreement, which is based on the criterion of social utility. In order to analyse this relationship, my assumption takes into consideration three pathways: evolutionary ethics, with reference to Paul Rée; error theo- ry, with reference to John Mackie; and the concept of commodification, with reference to Ralph W. Emerson. I try to connect these perspectives in order to re-define the concepts of judgment and objectivity, showing that both can be viewed as standard or criteria of evaluation according to specific context and needs. My final aim is to show that Emerson’s concept of commodification corroborates the interpretation of nature in relation with the concept of social utility.</p> </div> </div> </div> 2018-10-25T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://www.journalpc.org/ojs/index.php/jpc/article/view/32 Ética de la ciudad entre pobreza y riqueza 2019-01-16T20:04:50+00:00 Serena Santoro santoroserena19@gmail.com <div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>Propongo una explicación sobre el concepto de ética de la ciu- dad respecto a la sociedad en la que vivimos.

En específico se tratan las diferencias entre la Villa 31 ,el barrio pobre, y Puerto Madero ,el barrio rico, dos realidades tan distintas como tan similares que viven codo a codo.</p> </div> </div> </div> 2019-01-14T09:45:42+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
