The aim of this book is to deepen our understanding of financial crimes as phenomena. It uses concepts of existential philosophies that are relevant to dissecting the phenomenon of financial crimes. With the help of these concepts, the book makes clear what the impact of financial crimes is on the way a human being defines himself or the way he focuses on a given notion of humankind. The book unveils how the growth of financial crimes has contributed to the increase of the anthropological gap, and how the phenomenon of financial crimes now distorts the way we understand humankind. Using the existential philosophies of Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Jaspers, Buber, Heidegger, and Marcel, the book sheds light on how these philosophies can help to better perceive and describe financial crimes. Next it looks at prevention strategies from an organizational perspective, using concepts of Sartre, Gadamer and Tillich. The book provides readers with existential principles that will help them be more efficient when they have to design and implement prevention strategies against corporate crime.

Corruption is a serious threat to prosperity, democracy and human well-being, with mounting empirical evidence highlighting its detrimental effects on society. Yet defining this threat has resulted in profound disagreement, producing a multidimensional concept. Tackling this important and provocative topic, the authors provide an accessible and systematic analysis of how our understanding of corruption has evolved. They identify gaps in the research and make connections between related concepts such as clientelism, patronage, patrimonialism, particularism and state capture. A fundamental issue discussed is how the opposite of corruption should be defined. By arguing for the possibility of a universal understanding of corruption, and specifically what corruption is not, an innovative solution to this problem is presented. This book provides an accessible overview of corruption, allowing scholars and students alike to see the far reaching place it has within academic research.

This book provides a detailed analysis of Aristotle’s Parts of Animals. It presents the wealth of information provided in the biological works of Aristotle and revisits the detailed natural history observations that inform, and in many ways penetrate, the philosophical argument. It raises the question of how easy it is to clearly distinguish between what some might describe as “merely” biological and the philosophical. It explores the notion and consequences of describing the activity in which Aristotle is engaged as philosophical biology. The book examines such questions as: do readers of Aristotle have in mind organisms like Ascidians or Holothurians when trying to understand Aristotle’s argument regarding plant-like animals? Do they need the phenomena in front of them to understand the terms of the philosophical argument in a richer way? The discussion of plant-like animals is important in Aristotle because of the question about the continuum between plant and animal life. Where does Aristotle draw the line? Plant-like animals bring this question into focus and demonstrate the indeterminacy of any potential solution to the division. This analysis of Parts of Animals shows that the study of the nature of the organic world was Aristotle’s way into such ontological problems as the relationship between matter and form, or form and function, or the heterogeneity of the many different kinds of being.​

Teach your children to think for themselves and why America is great. With 51 captioned illustrations, 6 parables that teach lessons of life, and Questions for Kids at the end of each major section, Don't Take My Lemonade Stand - An American Philosophy is written to help parents teach their children. We as parents have the obligation to take charge of who is teaching our children and what our children are being taught. This book is for those that believe in the preeminence of children, the vigorous expression of patriotism, and the power of clear-eyed optimism. Janie Johnson says "The strength of our country resides in the minds of our children, and the future of our country will be found in their actions." There's no question that our political system has become corrupt and politicians - on both sides of the aisle - are voting in favor of the special interests that donated to them instead of the citizens who elected them. They have all contributed to the abandonment of the Common Sense Conservative principles upon which our country was founded and under which we have prospered. Don't Take My Lemonade Stand: An American Philosophy is the book that tells where we came from, how out-of-control, big government/big spending policies are driving us to ruin, and exactly what we the people can do to take back our country right here, right now, and get it back on course to peace, prosperity, and opportunity.

The Star Wars films continue to revolutionize science fiction, creating new standards for cinematographic excellence, and permeating popular culture around the world. The films feature many complex themes ranging from good versus evil and moral development and corruption to religious faith and pragmatism, forgiveness and redemption, and many others. The essays in this volume tackle the philosophical questions from these blockbuster films including: Was Anakin predestined to fall to the Dark Side? Are the Jedi truly role models of moral virtue? Why would the citizens and protectors of a democratic Republic allow it to descend into a tyrannical empire? Is Yoda a peaceful Zen master or a great warrior, or both? Why is there both a light and a dark side of the Force? Star Wars and Philosophy ponders the depths of these subjects and asks what it truly means to be mindful of the "living force."

This book opens up philosophical spaces for comparative discussions of education across ‘East and West’. It develops an intercultural dialogue by exploring the Anglo-American traditions of educational trans-/formation and European constructions of Bildung, alongside East Asian traditions of trans-/formation and development. Comparatively little research has been done in this area, and many questions concerning the commensurability of North American, European and East Asian pedagogies remain. Despite this dearth of theoretical research, there is ample evidence of continued interest in (self-)formation through various East Asian practices, from martial arts to health and spiritual practices (e.g. Aikido, Tai Chi, Yoga, mindfulness etc.), suggesting that these ‘traditional’ practices and pedagogical relations have something important to offer, despite their marginal standing in educational discourse. This book will appeal to all researchers and students of comparative education studies with an interest in issues of interpretation and translation between different traditions and cultures.

The works of Aristotle, current mental health professionals, Edmund Burke, Reinhold Niebuhr, Friedrich Meinecke, and George Kennan bolster this analysis.

The problem of corruption, however described, dates back thousands of years. Professionals working in areas such as development studies, economics and political studies, were the first to most actively analyse and publish on the topic of corruption and its negative impacts on economies, societies and politics. There was, at that time, minimal literature available on corruption and the law. The literature and discussion on bribery and corruption, as well as on the negative impact of each and what is required to address them, particularly in the legal context, are now considerable. Corruption and anti-corruption are multifaceted and multi-disciplinary. The focus now on the law and compliance, and perhaps commercial incentives, is relatively easy. However, corruption, anti-corruption and the motivations for them are complex. If we continue to discuss, debate, engage, address corruption and anti-corruption in our own disciplinary silos, we are unlikely to significantly progress the fight against corruption. What do terms such as 'culture of integrity', 'demand accountability', ‘transparency and accountability’ and ‘ethical corporate culture’ dominating the anti-corruption discourse mean, if anything, in other disciplines? If they are meaningless, what approach would practitioners in those other disciplines suggest be adopted to address corruption. What has their experience been in the field? How can the work of each discipline contribute to the work of whole and, as such, improve our work in and understanding of anti-corruption? This book seeks to answer these questions and to understand the phenomenon more comprehensively. It will be of value to researchers, academics, lawyers, legislators and students in the fields of law, anthropology, sociology, international affairs, and business.

Fascism, The Police State, Totalitarianism, Great Reset, Covid 19, Medical Tyranny, Neo-Feudalism and the Path to Political & Spiritual Freedom. MAAT VS FASCISM Volume II This book is written from the perspective of an ethicist examining the political and economic system of Western culture in general and the United States in particular. It found that the Western countries were moving follows the findings of MAAT VS FASCISM Volume I (2014) which found that the malfeasance and corruption of western politics and economics, focusing on the United States, as the leading Western country, were heading towards a fascistic police state condition. This new follow-up volume details how the Western culture has progressed towards and has become a full fascistic government and economic system and how it continues the march towards a greater and more absolute control, surveillance, propaganda state. This new volume also details the use of an apparently manufactured pandemic to usher in the draconian aspects of the fascist surveillance police state through scientific fear inducement coupled with medical tyranny in order to usher in an excuse for imposing experimental chemical therapies, and forcing impoverishment, mental debilitation, social traumas, dis-empowerment and absolute control on the population. This volume also shows a pathway from understanding how and why the degradation of society has occurred to what individuals and groups need to do to re-empower themselves. The re-empower occurs first through developing understanding of the social, political and economic traumas imposed on the population. Then ethical conscience and spiritual strength are to be developed, followed by applying that ethical conscience to conscious living and ethical actions that directly promote natural mental and physical health. Next, using that health, the task is to oppose the fear based delusions perpetrated by the sociopathic, charlatan politicians and corporate leaders imposing the fascist surveillance police state on the population. The opposition is physical, spiritual, civil, and legal. MAAT PHILOSOPHY wisdom holds answers for confronting the ills of negative members of a society. It also holds keys for self-empowerment and spiritual evolution that every healthy individual needs in order to have a viable and sane society that will not believe in, tolerate or support craven sociopathic and rapacious leadership that will lead the society to its demise.

This book brings together leading African scholars and researchers from various academic disciplines, cultures, religions, and generations. It examines how to better mobilise and influence the actions, behaviour and attitudes of citizens towards accountability, transparency, and probity, in order to strengthen Africa’s integrity, equity, and sustainable development. It serves to deepen and strategically add to current efforts to combat corruption, and clearly advocates that fighting corruption is the business of everyone. The role of ethics in society and the presence of leaders who ideally should be ethical, effective, and empathic are also important. This volume shows that corruption robs the poor, and will serve to enrich the reader’s philosophy of life.

Why does God permit the great suffering and evil that we see in our world? This basic question of human existence receives a fresh answer in this book as the mystery of evil is explored in the context of the mystery of the Trinity. God's permission of evil and the way in which suffering can lead human persons into the life of the Trinity are discussed in dialogue with the great Swiss theologian Hans Urs von Balthasar. In the light of Balthasar's model of the Trinity as divine self-giving love, we gain a profound grasp of the nature of suffering in human life by placing our suffering in the context of the divine life of the Triune God.
