  • Postawy maturzystów wobec zjawiska aborcji i eutanazji

    Muniak, Katarzyna
    This thesis deals with secondary school leavers’ approach towards such issues as abortion and euthanasia. The theory part of my thesis introduces basic concepts related to the title of the thesis and characterizes prenatal and postnatal stages of a human life. The thesis also includes legal regulations concerning abortion and euthanasia and medical aspects are analyzed herein. In case of abortion I focused on woman’s physical and mental health effects and in cases of medical aspects of euthanasia - on its types. The thesis also indicates to the Roman-Catholic Church approach towards the problem of abortion and euthanasia in modern world.The following question is the central problem of this thesis: What are the approaches and attitudes of secondary school leavers towards the phenomenon of abortion and euthanasia? I used a diagnostic survey as a research tool. A questionnaire technique was used to carry out my research and to look into the problem I prepared a questionnaire which was given to students of Tytus Chalubinski Complex of Secondary Schools in Myslenice. The case group consisted of 150 persons – 88 girls and 62 boys. The results obtained from the questionnaire show that the students under the investigation are, in most case, against abortion and euthanasia. However, their knowledge about the problem is not enough. At the same time it turned out that the problem was not often discussed both at school and among the members of their families. The basic source of information about abortion and euthanasia is that of mass media. It seems to be very important that families and teachers as persons having substantial influence on the development of young people’s personalities and frequently being an example for them to follow should show a greater interest in the problem of abortion and euthanasia and more often talk about it with young people.
  • Memorias I Simposio Internacional de Filosofía y Teología: Miradas acerca de la construcción de lo humano en el siglo XXI

    Reyes Solís, Darwin; Henao Mesa, Jairo Alberto; Potosí C., Fabián; Leguizamo, Anaís; Portilla Farfán, Fredi; Zuna Serrano, Kleber; López, Patricio; Ángel Silva, Medardo; Macías Moreno, Miguel Ángel; Cristian Fernando, Barreto Calle (2020-11-11)
    Tiempos aciagos nos ha tocado vivir. Tiempo de hacerse preguntas trascendentales. Inquietudes humanas que afloran en momentos de incertidumbre, donde la vida es valorada como preciosa, con relación a las cercanías de la muerte, de la pérdida de aquello o aquellos que amamos. 
 Las preguntas profundas del ser humano son una preocupación de la Filosofía y de la Teología, saberes que buscan dar sentido a aquellas cuestiones que están más allá de los hechos. En este contexto, la Universidad Politécnica Salesiana a través de sus carreras de Filosofía y Teología abren el debate y aportan a la comprensión del pensamiento humano. 
 Ya desde el I Simposio de Filosofía y Teología de noviembre del 2019 y hoy con estas memorias buscamos nuevos horizontes de sentido para aquellos debates que no están valorados y que, sin embargo, son fundamentales: la ética, la dimensión antropológica de lo humano en este nuevo siglo XXI. 
 Esperamos aportar para construir nuevas formas de enfrentar y entender lo humano, adaptados a las nuevas realidades que vivimos .
  • Monjas y sacerdotes católicos como maestros zen : Historia de la escuela Zendo Betania

    Puglisi, Rodolfo Salvador; Carini, Catón Eduardo (2017-12)
    En este trabajo ofrecemos un panorama histórico de los procesos socioreligiosos que dieron inicio a Zendo Betania. Así, primero describimos el énfasis ecuménico de la escuela budista zen Sanbokyodan, para luego ocuparnos de la figura de Hugo Enomiya-Lassalle, sacerdote jesuita alemán que estudió en Japón en esta escuela. Posteriormente, destacamos el rol difusor del zen que Lassalle desempeñó en Europa, para luego enfatizar la influencia que ejerció sobre la monja española Ana María Schlüter Rodés, fundadora de la escuela Zendo Betania hace tres décadas en España. A continuación, bosquejamos la historia de su llegada a Argentina y, a partir de la investigación etnográfica y bibliográfica que hemos realizado con estos grupos, destacamos que la escuela presenta una serie de características que la distinguen, en tanto combina prácticas rituales y representaciones cosmológicas budistas y católicas en un mismo contexto. Finalmente, el artículo concluye analizando las hibridaciones “occidente”/“oriente” involucradas en la globalización religiosa.
  • Modern application of Bain al-Sarf (Currency Exchange) from Maqasid al-Shari’ah perspective: A scoping review

    Ali, Mohammed Farid (IIUM Press, 2020-09-17)
    Bai‖ al-sarf widely known as currency exchange is an important sale contract both in classical and contemporary world. This scoping review looks into the objectives behind the rulings set by the Shari‖ah for this sale contract. These objectives are sorted out from the commentaries of the hadith and the deliberations of the jurists through tex-tual analysis method. Some of the modern applications such as T+2 and Islamic Foreign Currency Exchange (FX) Swap structures are briefly juxtaposed against the objectives of bai‖ al-sarf we discovered. Objectives of Shari‖ah rulings in spot exchange is to avoid falling into the sale of debt against debt (al-kali bi al-kali), prevention of payment delay by one of the counter parties, prevention of conflict between the counter parties, and last not least to avoid falling into exchange contracts that will induce riba.
