Arguments for and against the existence of God have been proposed by philosophers, theologians, scientists, and others for thousands of years. Inphilosophical terms, arguments for and against the existence of God involve primarily the sub-disciplines of epistemology (theory of knowledge) andontology (nature of god) and also the theory of value, since concepts of perfection are connected to notions of God. The debate concerning the existence of God is one of the oldest and most discussed debates in human history. A wide variety of arguments exist which can be categorized asmetaphysical, logical, empirical, or subjective. The existence of God is subject to lively debate in philosophy,[1] the philosophy of religion, and popular culture.
The Western tradition of the existence of God began with Plato and Aristotle, who made arguments for God's existence that would now be categorized as cosmological arguments. Later, Epicurus formulated the problem of evil: if God is omnipotent, omniscient and omnibenevolent, why does evil exist? The field of theodicy arose from attempts to answer this question. Other thoughts about the existence of God have been proposed by St. Anselm, who formulated the first ontological argument; Ibn Rushd (Averroes) and Aquinas, who presented their own versions of the cosmological argument (thekalam argument and the first way), respectively; Descartes, who said that the existence of a benevolent God was logically necessary for the evidence of the senses to be meaningful; and Immanuel Kant, who argued that the existence of God can be deduced from the existence of good. Thinkers who have provided arguments against the existence of God include David Hume, Kant, Nietzsche and Bertrand Russell. In modern culture, the question of God's existence has been discussed by philosophers and scientists such as Stephen Hawking, Richard Dawkins, Daniel…...

...Domestic Administration An introduction from the Home Bursar The menu choices in this section of the website provide information about the people who run the backup services and systems that life in College relies on. To a new student, and even one who has been here for a while, a college can seem to be impossibly complex. The hope is that this section will give you an overall impression of how these services and systems work and fit together. It will also tell you how you can make contact with the right people to deal with enquiries so that you get the most out of your time at St Catherine’s James Bennett The Home Bursar, Mr James Bennett, is responsible for the College grounds and buildings, health and safety matters, the general management of the College’s services and the staff who provide those services. Email: james.bennett@stcatz.ox.ac.uk The Home Bursar also acts as a point of contact for representatives of the student Common Rooms, the JCR and MCR, on what are called ‘domestic’ matters – the areas covered by this section of the website. The way St Catherine’s works means that good ideas and comments on how things are done can usually be very quickly acted on if they are raised directly with the appropriate member of staff. However, there are situations when a more formal approach might be required. In these cases, matters can be raised with one of the Home Bursar’s departmental Managers (Accommodation, Maintenance and Accounts), either directly or through...

Family Value

...A. INTRODUCTION 1. Rationale - Family is the basic social unit. Family represents people living together by ties of marriage, blood or adaptation, thus representing a single household. According to sociology, the family has the primary function of reproducing society; biologically, socially, or both. There are various structures of a family based on the relationship shared between the parent and the children. - Life and people are always changing, but the main values and bases of the concept of family should always remain present. To many people, the definition of the word family is a unity among a group of people who care and tend to each other’s needs, while forming an unbreakable bond. Therefore, family values are important and should be cherished and nurtured. - Every country has different family values such as Chinese and American.

...Chapter 8 Rational-Emotive-Behavior Therapy and Cognitive-Behavior Therapy CHAPTER OVERVIEW Rational-Emotive-Behavior Therapy (REBT), developed by Albert Ellis, is a therapy that consciously uses cognitive, emotive, and behavioral techniques to help clients. REBT theorists stress that human beings have choices. The control of ideas, attitudes, feelings, and actions is specific to the person who arranges a life according to personal dictates. Having little control over what happens or what actually exists, people do have choices and control over how they view the world and how they react to difficulties. CHAPTER OBJECTIVES After completing this chapter, the student will be able to: 1. Identify the philosophical assumptions associated with rational-emotive behavior therapy and cognitive-behavior therapy. 2. Explain the nature of people according to rational-emotive-behavior therapy. 3. Discuss rational and irrational thoughts and the three areas in which people hold irrational beliefs. 4. Describe the REBT process of teaching people to think and behave in more personally satisfying ways. 5. Summarize the "A, B, C, D, and E," approach to counseling. 6. Compare and contrast REBT with other theories. Evaluate the limitations and contributions of the REBT approach to counseling. CHAPTER SUMMARY Rational-Emotive-Behavior Therapy (REBT) has emerged from what Albert Ellis considered a limited rational...

...; * Hardening the child’s attitude negatively towards the other parent; * Less opportunity for parents and children to spend time together; * Effects of the breakup on children's school performance and peer relations; * Disruptions of extended family relationships; The single parent can help family members face these difficulties by talking with each other about their feelings and working together to tackle problems. Based on the above, the researcher intends to investigate the relationship between the family issues and its effects on student’s academic performance in secondary school. The research confirms that adolescents have a different perspective than their parents on the family's style of education, on the attitudes and behaviors in school-family-community relations; all these influence their reactions and ultimately, their psycho-social development. Consider the overlapping spheres of influence theory, the representations that the student has acquired in high school overlap with the representations of his/her family experience, thus providing him/her with a new and broader horizon of understanding of the family microcosm in relation to the school and community environment. 2.1. STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM Some students are faced with different family issues thereby diverting them from focusing on their education and thereby making them irresponsible citizen in the society at large.

Family Value

...Family Value The meaning of family is different from family to family, unit to unit, and culture to culture. According to DeFrain, Brand, Friesen, and Swanson (2008), “Families are the basic, foundational social units in all human communities around the world, and healthy individuals within families are at the core of a healthy society (para. 4). Families are usually made up of two or more people that love, care, and respect one another. Each member in the family plays a vital role to family functions or goals. When patient comes in the Emergency Room, they do not feel well and want service with a smile. Most times patients can be an advocate for themselves. There are times when it is important to have a family unit there to ask questions, clarifying information, and receive teachings as well to help nurture the patient back to a normal or functional state of health. Family values are defined differently in each unit; they all involve how they will live their lives, to include their culture, spiritual beliefs, and/or tradition. Their values build the family’s structure, functions, attitudes, ideas, and roles. In the emergency room, our goal is to include the family in healthcare decisions, treatments, and education as much as possible, however this is not always possible. Events in the emergency room are fast moving in nature and in the priority of treating and or stabilizing a patient the family can be pushed to the side. The family is a vital part to the success of...
