Uma Nova Visão do Sofrimento Humano nas Organizações Analisar o trabalho – assim como o conhecemos hoje, moldado às exigências do mercado – enquanto provedor e algoz do trabalhador e, consequentemente, da sociedade, sob a ótica da Psicopatologia do Trabalho: a isto se dispõe inicialmente o texto do francês Christophe Dejours, tendo por principais focos o sofrimento laboral que, por sua vez, pode ser tanto proveitoso (sofrimento criativo) quanto prejudicial (sofrimento patogênico), e as organizações do trabalho enquanto ponto de partida para uma possível solução, ou seja, transformar o sofrimento patogênico em sofrimento criativo. Ao introduzir o leitor à Psicopatologia do Trabalho, Dejours já deixa claro que essa disciplina encontrou seu nicho não nas investigações das doenças mentais relacionadas ao trabalho, mas no “enigma da normalidade”, nas razões por que o trabalhador mantém-se mentalmente estável face os mais variados tipos de afrontas psíquicas. Em outras palavras, é no comedimento e na harmonia profissional que se encontra o sofrimento do trabalhador. O autor define esse sofrimento como uma batalha para manter-se são, um conflito constante que exige do trabalhador estratégias defensivas que visam à lucidez. Esse conflito, por sua vez, se traduz do confronto entre a personalidade do trabalhador e as exigências organizacionais, entre o homem enquanto indivíduo e o papel genérico ao qual ele deve adequar-se (ou moldar-se). Partindo de elaborações feitas no campo da psicanálise, Dejours elucida que, no entanto, certos papeis genéricos promovidos pela organização do trabalho podem vir a oferecer ao profissional a ocasião propícia para “perseguir seu questionamento interior e traçar sua história”, pois “pela intermediação do trabalho, o sujeito engaja-se nas relações sociais para onde ele transfere as questões herdadas de seu passado”; o confronto…...

The Comparison of Human Nature and Suffering.

...The comparison of human nature and suffering. “Parental love is not like bread that can be broken into pieces and split amongst the children in equal share. A father gives all his love to each one of his children without discrimination, whether it be one or ten. And if I am suffering now for my two sons, I am not suffering half for each of them but double” (93, paragraph 10). In the stories “The Necklace” and “War” some similarities in theme were suffering, human nature, and how one deals with suffering, in plot and characterization. Both authors went to great lengths to bring these characters to life by allowing each of them to openly display their emotions. This kind of open expression allows the reader to effectively analyze the nature of each character. Suffering is universal so we all suffer, albeit in different ways. These characters are no exception, they are all suffering in some way or another, the only difference is the cause of their suffering. In the case of Mathilde in the Necklace, Maupassant portray her as someone lacking all the finer things in life; hence her source of suffering. This character is enduring what could be considered self-inflicted suffering. Her constant need for validation is what makes suffer the most “she......

Animal Suffering

...When you go out to eat and look at your thick and juicy T-bone steak what do you think about? When you look at that gorgeous mink coat in the department store what is going through your mind? When you here that cigarette smoke causes cancer in lab animals what is the first thing that comes to mind? Chances are that in each of these cases you were not thinking about how the cow suffered while it was being fattened up, ho painful the trap was that caught those mink, or the conditions those lab animals hat to endure to develop that cancer. Most people do not think about these things. However, in this paper, you will be enlightened on the pain and suffering of animals in three different industries and you will also hear from the other side of this issue. First, one of the biggest culprits of animal suffering is the animal food industry. This is an industry in which people have a tendency to block out or ignore the animal mistreatment; this is done by disassociating oneself with the direct harm and ignoring the indirect harm (Harnack 133). A good start under this example in the case of pigs. Normally, pigs are intelligent animals capable of showing affection. They have very good senses of smell, which is why pigs have been used as hunting animals (Coats 31). This normal behavior is disrupted however in the food industry. Pigs are taken to slaughter at about twenty-four weeks of age when they are approximately 220 pounds (Coats 32). Pigs are usually......

Suffering

...Testament Survey III 27 April 2010 Suffering Introduction Why do Christians suffer? Doesn’t God want us to have our best life now, which of course would have nothing to do with suffering? I’m afraid that this is not the case; in fact we as Christians are actually called to join Christ in His suffering. In this short paper we are going to look briefly at what suffering is and what is the purpose of Christian suffering, also the different types of suffering and what our response should be when we encounter it. Definition of Suffering “To feel or bear what is painful, disagreeable or distressing, either to the body or mind; to undergo. We suffer pain of body; we suffer grief of mind. The criminal suffers punishment; the sinner suffers the pangs of conscience in this life, and is condemned to suffer the wrath of an offended God. We often suffer wrong; we suffer abuse; we suffer injustice.” (Webster) Purposes of Suffering Trials are compared in first Peter to fire, and our faith to gold, the purpose of us undergoing various trials or suffering, is to prove whether our faith is genuine or not. Also it is in suffering, when we are in bad earthly circumstances that we are given the opportunity to show those around that our hope is not in this life, that we might be able to give them the explanation for the hope that we have, though we are suffering in the here and now. Types of Suffering There are many things which can cause suffering; many that everyone is subject to......

Pain and Suffering

...Pain and Suffering The argument that is being disputed deals whether pain and suffering is truly evil or a necessary discomfort in order to achieve a greater relationship with our creator. There are three misconceptions that are used to argue that there cannot be a loving God. The first is that the very definition of loving is automatically related to making people happy and comfortable. This is argued through the very fact that the greatest act of love, Jesus’ crucifixion, brought immense anguish to Jesus, but he welcomed the pain as he knew that eternity along his father and saving us from sin would be worth it. This leads to the second false assumption that states that the events that occur in this lifetime will be greater than our eternal life. This premise dictates that all of our suffering will be worthless if we do not truly believe that there is a God since our eternal life will be lost. The third and final false assumption is that we are able to understand the world through God’s perspective. With no doubt this assumption is incredibly flawed as we are simple humans unable to comprehend on the same level as our God. This is exemplified by the fine example of a bear with a leg caught in a bear trap. A bear-lover who tries to free it will, with no doubt, cause it more pain, but the bear-lover means no harm and knows that the only way to free it is to shoot it with tranquilizers. We are the bear: unintelligent, fearful, and curious as to why someone would cause us......

Suffering and Compassion

...Suffering and Compassion No one anticipates whether something good or something bad will happen to them. People hope to find the answers to these questions and to relinquish their heart ache that has been given to them, so people look for answers where they cannot be found. Some believe that it is a simple act of nature, luck, and even the power of God that causes pain even though the reason of these occurrences that happen to us cannot be known. When Bad Things Happen to Good People is a book in which the author Harold S. Kushner asks the question: why God? When his son is diagnosed with a degenerative disease Kushner cannot understand why such an act of pain is happening to him and his family: “People try to make sense of the world suffering by assuming that we deserve what we get. That our misfortunes come as punishment for our sins” (Kushner, 1995, 12) can this statement make sense? How can it? Kusher is a rabbi, and helps others through their difficult times, listening to people confess the pain that they are feeling. Kusher is one of God's holy followers, so how can this statement explain the loss of his son and the feeling of emptiness in his heart that may never be filled. Spiritually, one would like to believe that religion can be a form of comfort in a situation of suffering, but questions emerge, such as how can there be a kind and loving God who is responsible for the bad things that happen to people. This forces us to question the power of God. (Kushner 1995,......

Vision

...Vision Statement vs. Mission Statement George Leslie Kaplan University Vision Statement vs. Mission Statement To first understand the difference between a vision statement and a mission statement, one must first know what each statement is or know how to define them. The success of any business lies within the vision statement and mission statement. It is all about being able to accomplish the vision and the mission of the business. Therefore, it is important for a business to have a vision and mission. The purpose of the vision statement and mission statement is to establish and convey the directions in which an organization is trying to go (Mission statements, 2014). The big difference between the visions statement and mission statement is that they serve for different purposes. Let’s define and establish the difference between visions statements and mission statements. According to the businessdictionary.com, a mission statement is defined as “a written declaration of an organization's core purpose and focus that normally remains unchanged over time. Properly crafted mission statements (1) serve as filters to separate what is important from what is not, (2) clearly state which markets will be served and how, and (3) communicate a sense of intended direction to the entire organization” (Mission statement, 2014). To grasp a clear, concise understanding of what mission statement is, it can also be defined as being the organization’s purpose and objectives. ......

God and Human Suffering

...Why Does God Allow Suffering? by David C. Pack ------------------------------------------------- The world is filled with suffering of every kind. Countless millions know little else. Yet God allows it. Why has He not stopped the terrible suffering that afflicts so many? Is there a REASON God has not intervened? Does suffering have a great unseen PURPOSEthat can be understood? Take a long look around the world. Enormous numbers of people are suffering everywhere for every kind of reason. Every day, 200,000 people starve to death—and this is after weeks or months of horrible suffering. Such suffering is not limited to physical pain, but includes psychological and mental anguish of parents often having to watch their children die in their arms. Starvation is so awful that death is actually a blessed relief. Why doesn’t God stop this? Even more people die each day from disease. The very word disease means people are not “at ease.” As you read this article, untold trauma, pain and suffering, due to crippling conditions, infections and disease of every sort, are occurring around the world. Just in Africa, children are orphaned by the millions every year, due to AIDS alone. Why isn’t God intervening? The prophet Daniel spoke of “the TIME OF THE END.” The apostle Peter said, “there shall come in the LAST DAYS scoffers.” Paul said, “In the LAST DAYS perilous times shall come.”…  Order Now Now consider poverty, which affects one-third of all people on earth. The lack of...

...topic from the following list of 16: Sartre Write an essay which explicates and evaluates some of the central claims in Sartre’s “Existentialism” (the first essay of Existentialism and Human Emotions.) You should frame your essay around a particular philosophical claim or theme which you would like to write about in Sartre’s essay. For example: 1. How does Sartre argue that “existentialism is a humanism” and is his argument a good one? 2. What is Sartre’s notion of freedom and how does it relate to ethics? Is this a viable ethics? 3. Explain and evaluate the claim that “existence precedes essence.” What are the implications for living if one accepts this claim? Defend or consider problems with this position. 4. What does Sartre mean when he says that “man is condemned to be free” but also that we are nonetheless responsible for who or what we become? In what way are we free, in which ways are we responsible, and to whom are we responsible? Is Sartre right? If so, why? If not, why not? 5. Drawing on the entirety of the essay, develop an account of what Sartre thinks the human is (in his language “man” or the “subject.”) Once you have articulated what man is for Sartre, critically evaluate this account. What are the strengths with Sartre’s version of what a human is—what, if any, are the weaknesses or blind spots in such an account?

JIM ZABLOSKI SEMI 500- B15 LIBERTY THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY BY Donald Clark LYNCHBURG, VA February 3, 2015 Contents Title Page……………………………………………………….1 Table of Contents………………………………………………2 Introduction…………………………………………………….3 History and Beliefs……………………………………………..4 The Logical Consistency and Moral Judgment of God………..5 Conclusion……………………………………………………...9 Bibliography……………………………………………………11 Introduction One of the most frequently asked questions in today’s society is “why do bad things happen to good people?” Why does God allow suffering and evil things to happen? These questions are central to a Christian’s faith. These questions have not gone unexplored in the cannon of Christian philosophy. Job, Augustine, C.S. Lewis, and others have all considered and contributed to an ongoing dialogue surrounding these issues. For some, the stories of personal sufferings, persecution, and martyrdom provide them a rallying point and as well as constant reminders of the pain Christ faced at the cross and what it took to pay the price for sin; while others suggest that suffering are character-building endeavors. One thing is sure: suffering is an important and ever present element of the Christian faith. Pain and suffering are controversial subjects encompassing all aspects of their meaning from whether God allows it?1 Does God bring it about? Who and what are the intended......

Suffering

...Ryan Flores Suffering Throughout history and throughout the world, there have been multiple accounts of people suffering. People suffering for many different reasons, and haas been known to have multiple effects on people’s lives. I found Job’s argument and the Buddhist argument on suffering to be the most compelling. The Book of Job emphasizes on one particular question; why do bad things happen to good people? In other words, why do the good suffer? On the other hand, the Buddhist argument on suffering is based on the idea of the self. The Book of Job appeals to the emotional argument where the Buddhist argument appeals to the logical argument. Job’s argument and the Buddhist argument on suffering are relatable to each other. The Buddhist argument focuses on why we suffer regardless of our social status. We could be wealthy, poor, or even good or bad in life. We all experience suffering in our own way. This idea is prevalent in the Book of job. In the Book of Job, Job has been blessed with many things in life including ten children, livestock, servants, and a wealth of land. Job was also “blameless and upright, one who feared God and turned away from evil.” (Job 1:1) Satan approached God in Heaven and God bragged about Job and how great he was. Satan stated that Job was only great because of the plethora of blessings he has received from God and challenged God that if he were to punish Job, he would curse God. God had accepted Satan’s challenge to make Job......

...I am glad to say that some of the happiest moments in my life happened whilst I was in high school. I am forever grateful that I got to spend my formative years in a good school, surrounded by great people. I was usually the one who lead the Vision when our section was assigned the responsibility of leading the flag ceremony so this reflection sort of feels like I have come full circle, now I am being asked to reflect on it and see it through an alumna’s eyes. I do believe that the university certainly sits on a level above most, especially in the South. I, myself, have seen what it is like in college and compared myself to others who have come from other schools and I realized that we (other alumnae) were almost always prepared for what the professors gave us. I couldn’t believe other students never heard of bookkeeping, let alone knew how to at least make a basic baby thesis. That certainly shows the effectiveness of the high school’s academic endeavors and their success in instilling knowledge in its pupils. Going back to spending my formative years in the high school department of the university… I certainly learned a few things, not just academically, but outside of the classroom. I built friendships, gained responsibilities, made mistakes and won a few medals here and there… all of which helped me become a better, well-rounded person. Our teachers (especially advisers) became second parents. Without them, properly guiding over us in such crucial years, I have......

Suffering the Iliad

...Suffering in The Iliad Suffering seems to be one of the under toning themes of the Iliad. Everyone undergoes the effects of war and battle. The women stand and watch helplessly as their loved ones fight, and live knowing they may never come back. The role of what a ‘man’ or ‘women’ is or should be also causes suffering because of the decisions they must take on. The warriors understand that whichever decision they make to continue in battle or desert, their honor and integrity is at stake and that dilemma causes suffering Although, each person I mention seems to somewhat understand what fate lies ahead of them or of their loved ones, they realize the suffering they will have to eventually go through. As a warrior Achilles has witnessed much death but this war has him questioning why labor through it all? Achilles does not believe in this war initially. He knows the war is over power and ego of a man who could not keep his wife, and doesn’t understand why many men must be dragged into personal affairs and get their hands dirty will the Kings stand back and watch their people and country die. Achilles identity is based on being a proud fighter and he weeping to his mother is a great concern. The humiliation he experiences with Agamemnon, the fact that he lost his war prize and could not defend what was his, affects Achilles pride as well. Achilles, in a time of vulnerability goes to his mother and asks for her guidance after his integrity is compromised. Thetis son......
