  • Justifying an Adequate Response to the Vulnerable Other

    • Authors: Chandra Kavanagh
      Abstract: Is it possible to justify requiring that I respond adequately to the other’s vulnerability? I contend that insofar as I value my own personal identity it is consistent to respond adequately to the vulnerability of the other. Part one provides a break down of vulnerability in terms of its fundamental indeterminacy. Part two illustrates how the ability to respond either adequately or inadequately to the other’s vulnerability is implied by the fundamental co-constitution of personal identity. I understand myself as a self only insofar as I stand in relation to other selves that see me as a self. If the relationship between recognition and identity also holds for the other, my response to her vulnerability founds her identity as well. In part three the relationship developed in part two is employed to justify the obligation to respond adequately to the vulnerable other. If I value my own personal identity, then I require an adequate response from others, because that response plays an integral role in the foundation of my personal identity. The other cannot respond adequately to my vulnerability unless her own identity is assured. Only if I respond adequately to the vulnerability of the other will she be in a position to assure my identity. Therefore, I ought to respond adequately to the vulnerability of others if for no other reason than it puts the other in a position where she can assure the personal identity that I value.

  • The Ethics of Enhancement: Cognitive Inequalities and Sentient Animals

    • Authors: Olga Campos Serena
      Abstract: What role should sentient animals play in the current debate on enhancement? The question covers several different philosophical fronts that demand urgent global ethical analysis. This touches issues that go from prohibition, permissivity or obligation that should characterize the new biotechnologies oriented to the enhancement of individuals, to the debate surrounding the moral rights of animals. Furthermore, the difficulty arises not only from the controversial moral categories involved, but also from the very extent of the objective proposed. However, this also gives rise to the pertinence of the above-mentioned question posed at the outset: on the one hand, the need for consistency in an eminently biased debate, and on the other the need to justify the proposal in which all sentient individuals are legitimate protagonists without this necessarily leading to implausible scenarios.

  • The Ethical Relevance of Risk Assessment and Risk Heeding: the Space
           Shuttle Challenger launch decision as an object lesson

    • Authors: Robert Allinson
      Abstract: For the purpose of this analysis, risk assessment becomes the primary term and risk management the secondary term. The concept of risk management as a primary term is based upon a false ontology. Risk management implies that risk is already there, not created by the decision, but lies already inherent in the situation that the decision sets into motion. The risk that already exists in the objective situation simply needs to be “managed”. By considering risk assessment as the primary term, the ethics of responsibility for risking the lives of others, the environment and future generations in the first place comes into the forefront. The issue of risk heeding is especially important as it highlights the need to pay attention to warnings of danger and to take action to redress problems before disasters occur. In this paper, the decision making that led to the choice of technology utilized and the implementation of such technology in the case of the space shuttle Challenger disaster will be used as a model to illustrate the need to take ethical factors into account when making decisions regarding the safety of technological systems and the heeding of danger warnings. While twenty-five years separates the decision to launch the Challenger and the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant disaster, the lessons of the Challenger disaster are still to be learned.

  • Linking the Moral Hazard and Leverage in Companies

    • Authors: José Luis Retolaza, Leire San-José, Sara Urionabarrenetxea, Domingo García-Merino
      Abstract: This paper is intended to fill the gap in the literature on moral hazard amongst companies. It seeks to explore the moral hazard for companies by linking the leverage range with the risk involuntarily assumed by third parties. The paper takes the distinctive approach of trying to understand the nature of the moral hazard affected not only through asymmetries but also through lack of resources in companies. The paper also seeks to establish the importance of companies' moral hazard from an ethical perspective and proposes an index –the moral hazard index– which provides the option of reducing risk when managers make (moral) decisions on leverage and equity levels; subsequently the assumed risk is controlled. An extreme case is set out of companies that have such high leverage that they survive with negative equity (sometimes also known as zombie companies). In such cases the assumption of risk by third parties is undeniable. The paper explains the problem and shows the concern regarding company leverage. Although the index is still only theoretical, it offers opportunities for improvement to determine its applications and utility. Moral decisions are expected to be taken with regard to the structure of the capital of companies in order to reduce the risk assumed by third parties.

  • The Relationship of Corporate Social Responsibility, Consumer Value,
           Satisfaction and Loyalty: an Empirical Study

    • Authors: David Servera-Francés, María Fuentes-Blasco
      Abstract: The present paper aims to confirm the influence of CSR policies on Perceived Value for the consumers, and the influence of this value on satisfaction and loyalty. To achieve this purpose, a causal model which establishes the relationship between those variables has been developed and empirically tested. In order to verify the proposed hypothesis a structured survey was developed. The survey was given to a sample of 708 customers of modern distribution retail stores (supermarkets and hypermarkets) in Spain. All hypotheses are supported. Thus confirming that the consumer perception on CSR policies carried out by the retailer influence on customer perceived value. As this variable affect satisfaction and loyalty. These results also confirm the indirect influence of CSR on customer satisfaction, through the perceived value. In addition, we analyzed the results based on the degree of involvement of the consumers with social responsibility. The study demonstrated that more involved socially consumers have significantly higher average scores than consumers with low social involvement on all the variables analyzed.

  • Freedom of Expression, Public Opinion and Journalism in the Work of John
           Stuart Mill

    • Authors: Marçal Sintes
      Abstract: Abstract: This article reviews the basic elements in John Stuart thought on freedom of expression, public opinion and the role of journalism in a democratic society, ideas bringing together and consolidating a tradition which began in the seventeenth century and continues through to the present day. It also considers Mill’s thought in relation with the views of thinkers who came before him, Milton and Jefferson, for example, and his contemporary, Tocqueville. Among the core ideas in Mill’s writings are the “harm principle”, his approximation to the idea of truth, and his account of how political debate should be carried out. His extensive body of work has given rise to intense debate which is still lively today. As Isaiah Berlin emphasised, “[...] the critics of Mill have, on the whole, exceeded the number of his defenders. Nevertheless, the inner citadel – the central thesis – has stood the test”.

  • How Social Educators Manage Conflicts of Values

    • Authors: Jesús Vilar, Gisela Riberas, Rosa Genoveva
      Abstract: This article sets out the results of a research study into how social educators deal with the conflicts of values they experience in their professional practice. We begin by describing the main characteristics of the social educator's activity, and go on to present the data, of note among which is the fact that value conflicts or dilemmas arising in professional practice tend to be addressed as if they were a private matter. Finally, we propose a number of alternative approaches by means of which this process of conflict resolution could be undertaken more openly with a view to ensuring greater well-being for professional staff and fairer decision-making for clients.

  • Servant leadership, empowerment climate, and group creativity_ a case
           study in the hospitality industry

    • Authors: Jorge Linuesa-Langreo
      Abstract: Abstract: Leadership, due to its power to influence, is one of the most important tools available to organisation in order to become competitive, and as such it is one of the recurring themes in social sciences. Today, new leadership strategies have emerged as new drivers of effectiveness in workplace relationships based on the leader–follower relationship. One
      of these leadership strategies is servant leadership, whose motto is ‘put and promote followers’ interests and needs first’, which makes this leadership style strongly linked to exercising high ethics. As agapao love and service to others are important distinctive features of these leaders’ decisions and behaviours, the ethical influence relationship with their collaborators is thought to reach high levels. It is no surprise then that
      this ethical influence relationship makes followers to serve others and inculcates in followers values such as acceptance, tolerance, empathy, love, or forgiveness. More importantly, these leaders might make followers to grow in matureness, intelligence, creativity, and self-management, among other aspects. However, despite findings in recent literature of positive effects of servant leadership on valuable employee outcomes, research is still lacking on the results of this phenomenon on collective organisational variables and its influence in work groups. A case study analysis of a historic and emblematic hotel situated in a small Spanish city declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site provides evidence of the relationship between servant leadership and valuable work-group outcomes such as empowerment climate and group creativity.

  • Values and Development: a Pragmatic Reconstruction

    • Authors: Brian P. Jenkin
      Abstract: Broad consensus exists in development studies that development involves achieving and sustaining a so-called “good life.” Considerably less agreement exists, however, as to what the goal of such a life consists in and what the best practices are for bringing such a life about. The varying and competing types of approaches to development currently on offer, including cultural-economic approaches, capabilities approaches, and happiness approaches, are the conceptual by-products of this discord. The impasse between these approaches owes in part to the vagueness and seeming incommensurability of value judgments. It owes in equal part to three common and interwoven tendencies when it comes to how values are approached in development theory and practice. These include: (1) the tendency to view values as fixed and final; (2) the tendency to formulate and evaluate means distinctly from ends; and (3) the tendency to equate the individual character of value experience with value subjectivism, though it is wholly compatible with value objectivism. The purpose of this paper is to critically analyze these value tendencies while offering a theoretical reconstruction of each utilizing conceptual resources from philosophical pragmatism, especially John Dewey’s version it. It is argued that, by adopting a more pragmatic approach to values, development theorists and practitioners can constructively move past the present impasse in development studies.
