  • Kdy není teologická etika teologická: problémy v české tradici morální teologie

    Libor Ovečka (Karolinum Press, 2020-06-01)
    The article questions real theological character of some streams of the older Czech moral theological thought which ended in 1948 (beginning of the communist regime) and after 1989 has never been quoted or mentioned. It was a rationalistic neo-scholastic period of abstract philosophical theology The blind alleys of theology can be traced in such areas as: the Scripture and philosophical speculation; “good” deed being good only as resulting in one’s eternal happiness; personal spiritual life and universally binding moral norms; moral norms and the church and state law; natural ethics; dependence of theology on the political situation; universal validity and particular character of catholic moral theology; moral and religious norms of acting; moral responsibility to one’s conscience and ethical responsibility to a heteronomous authority. As examples of a really theological moral theology the work of Thomas Aquinas and Franz Bockle are presented. Their rationally constructed theology may be opposed by legal or disciplinary measures, religious manipulation, direct arguing by the will of God, or blind obedience. Nevertheless, personal moral responsibility remains undisputed. It is necessary to free oneself from some thought patterns and false traditions to uphold responsibility to the tradition of faith and real theology.
  • Personalidad y mal moral. La conexión de los vicios

    Echavarría, Martín Federico (2020)
    The Aristotelian moral tradition affirms that the virtues are connected, which also implies that the moral character is a unit in which there is organization and hierarchy. Moral vices, on the other hand, are considered in this tradition to be essentially unconnected. However, especially in the thought of Thomas Aquinas, there is a certain connection between some vices. This connection can be considered in two ways: either by attending to the individual and his own inclinations, a perspective which cannot be the object of science; or by attending to the connection between the objects of the appetitive inclinations, which is a consideration that attends to connections per se between moral vices and which, therefore, can be the object of science. Of this second type Aquinas’ consideration of the capital vices.
  • Good governance e o Conselho Nacional de Justiça

    Antonio César Bochenek; Vinicius Dalazoana; Vinicius Rafael Rissetti
    Os sistemas judiciais, no Brasil e em todo o mundo, estão passando por grandes modificações nas últimas décadas. No Brasil, de modo especial após a constituição federal de 1988, verifica-se um importante aumento da judicialização das relações sociais, da política e, consequentemente, da importância da administração da justiça. Além disso, a função judicial tem hoje uma relevante relação com as funções administrativas dos tribunais. Assim, uma satisfatória prestação jurisdicional requer também boas práticas administrativas. Nesse sentido, aumenta progressivamente o número de estudos sobre conceitos e técnicas de good governance nos assuntos públicos. Neste artigo, sustenta-se que a nova compreensão do modelo de justiça necessita da implementação de técnicas e práticas de good governance nos tribunais, conduzidas pelo conselho nacional de justiça, relacionadas principalmente às ideias de transparência, participação, eficácia, eficiência e coerência.
