AbstractDebates related to Qor'an and empirical sciences have a millenial history. Sometimes, it is called as deduction science from Quran, scientific interpretation of Qor'an or scientific deduction method of Quran. Islamic interpreters and scholars and even non-Muslim scholars have paid attention to it throught [sic; throughout] the history with a lof [sic; lots] of ups and downs. This filed of study in one hand is related to interpretation and on the other hand is related to scientific miracles of Qur'an. It is also related to empirical sciences. Hence, these are considered as basic and interdisciplinary fields for other interdisciplinary fields such as Qor'an and political sciences, Qor'an and economics? Qor'an and social sciences, Qor;an and cosmology and so on. This method has had a lot of advocates and opponents and it sometimes goes to extremes. The author, of the present article, defends the usual method; that is, using sciences in understanding Qor'an and its new methods; that is, scientific theorizing based on scientific verses of Qor'an specially in human science to determine the direction of these sciences. Also, the author reject other methods such as deducting all empirical sciences from Qor'an or imposing scientific theories of this holy book of Islam.

But What IS the 'Right Thing'?: Ethics and Information Systems in the Corporate DomainSmith, H. Jeff (AIS Electronic Library (AISeL), 2008-02-08)Information systems executives, and other executives, are often prodded to "do the right thing" when they face ethical quandaries. But how do they determine what is "right" ethically, especially when the ethical quandaries occur in the corporate domain? Some individuals rely solely on their own emotions, but they often have a hard time convincing rational thinkers to embrace their position. Other individuals rely on traditional philosophical theories, but this approach is seldom optimal in the corporate domain because the traditional philosophical theories do not specifically address the corporate setting. However, two theories do address ethical quandaries in the private sector: stockholder theory and stakeholder theory. This article discusses these two theories. Stockholder theory holds that executives should resolve ethical quandaries by taking actions that maximize the long-term profits to stockholders without violating the law or engaging in fraud or deception. Stakeholder theory claims that executives should resolve ethical quandaries by balancing stakeholder interests without violating the rights of any stakeholder. These theories are explored by first applying them to a specific real-world quandary: Blockbuster Video's reported plans to market its customer lists. Then the theories are applied to several other current quandaries. Finally, the article explores action steps for applying each theory.
