These three books that have been evaluated through the program introduce the audience to a broad range of issues that are ethical with respect to different types of groups. With these particular statures, there are several global aspects that get indulged into the system for business factors and fiscal policy factors. Examples of these issues brought into the picture involve slavery, war, poverty, the environment, corporate affirmative actions, and accountability. Some case studies are used as well as discussions on these particular issues that stimulate understanding, reflection, and analysis from the audience’s side in a way that brings forth a good reconnection with the reader. This, therefore, depicts the number of relatable aspects that there is in between the themes used. Strength to love by King, Martin Luther, Jr gives a more personalized touch to the views of things that are in relation to ethics, Doing Christian Ethics from the Margins introduces case studies that bring in the situations closer and more relatable. Noam Chomsky goes through history and gives the reader patches of relatable occurrences that build into the ethics lessons given.
Accountability is a major idea spread across the books, Noam Chomsky in Who Rules the World talks to intellectual men in chapter 1 in relation to their responsibility that is pinpointed towards assisting mankind in the quest to ending some of the controversial issues that we face (Chapter 1, pg 14). Throughout the book of Strength to Love, Martin Luther Jr coaxes the audience in being accountable for their actions. With teachings attributed to building tolerance and ethical values, the targets to make people accountable for their actions no matter what situations. In the book, Doing Christian Ethics from the Margins, Chapter 13 which is embedded in the case study section for business relationships delves into the accountability values that are required of the business task force.
The books use ethical approaches towards pointing out the issues that are facing humanity both in personalized levels and in a community or society wise methodology. Martin Luther junior energizes individuals from being strong, patient, and maintaining a strong spirit towards survival. In chapter one he refers to the chronicles of a tough mind and a tender heart, as transformation, love, good behavior, and parables of ethical values that people should adopt towards surviving the world’s cruelty and making the world a better place. Miguel De La Torre brings the ethical approaches towards a large base of communal or societal relation with relations to the business world, national and global relationships, including huge factors that affect multitudes like War, Poverty and the Environment (Page 52). Chomsky brings these factors into a particular evaluation through a quest for determining who rules the world. The specific approach is linking both these huge factors to the human factors through their ethical configurations to generate an evaluation on some of the critical factors that the world’s most deadly situations rely on (Chapter 23).
Christianity and Moral Decision Making
Ethics are rules of humanity that are engrafted into the goodness of our actions as human beings they, therefore, have a close relation to Christianity and morality. When it comes to the individual based factors, Martin Luther King refers a lot to the Bible as he handles the behavioral aspirations of people through hardships (Chapter 1). This is imminent in chapter 14 as he copies the Bible’s character Paul and his messages to the people of God urging them to do well in their lives (Chapter 14). Chomsky, on the other hand, relates his work to the moral questions of what is fair or not, good or not, and in the real case, what the consequences of some of the moral decisions we make as human beings to the development of our race. As the name suggests it, Doing Christian Ethics from the Margins is a book that indulges its content towards analysis that is based on ethical approaches in both case studies and discussions. This promotes Christianity and moral values that should be taken in a course to develop a better society that is fully aware of factors that keenly affect our societal segments in the moral and ethical aspects (Chapter 14).
Impacts of the Course
In conclusion, analysing each book specifically to certain themes like ethical approaches and moral ideas like accountability enhances thought that brings the reader to a soliloquy on some of the issues that we have been taking for granted yet so critical to humanity. Apart from analysis, the book’s content generates a feature of consideration towards history and the real case scenarios that affect humanity hence coaxing someone to get in touch with the sensitive areas of ethical approaches and their relation to personal lives.
