Corporate Citizenship: We are responsible to the communities in which we live and work, the environment, and to the world community as well. This feature or fact is the ground or basis in the object, that in virtue of which it calls for respect. We also respect them positively by protecting them from threats to their autonomy which may require intervention when someone's current decisions seem to put their own autonomy at risk and by promoting autonomy and the conditions for it for example, by allowing and encouraging individuals to make their own decisions, take responsibility for their actions, and control their own lives. One common way of answer this question is to look for some morally significant natural quality that is common to all beings that are noncontroversially owed respect for example, all normal adult humans. The idea of respect for patient autonomy has transformed health care practice, which had traditionally worked on physician-based paternalism, and the principle enters into issues such as informed consent, truthtelling, confidentiality, respecting refusals of life-saving treatment, the use of patients as subjects in medical experimentation, and so on. We develop an account of respect as recognition of the unconditional value of patients as persons.
An attitude of respect is, most generally, a relation between a subject and an object in which the subject responds to the object from a certain perspective in some appropriate way. This entry will survey these and related issues. Mutual Respect: Mutual respect is the recognition of the equal worth of each individual, with full utilization of our diverse backgrounds, interests and strengths. This is sometimes expressed in terms of rights: persons, it is said, have a fundamental moral right to respect simply because they are persons. However, neither the love nor the respect we owe is a matter of feeling or, is pathological, as Kant says , but is, rather, a duty to adopt a certain kind of maxim, or policy of action: the duty of love is the duty to make the ends of others my own, the duty of respect is the duty to not degrade others to the status of mere means to my ends Kant 1779, 6: 449—450.
The health and safety of our people are paramount. For the discussion in the Critique makes it clear that reverential respect for the moral law is at the same time reverential respect for oneself, qua rational being, as the author of the law. Definition of values according to Boeing Leadership: We will be a world-class leader in every aspect of our business — in developing our team leadership skills at every level; in our management performance; in the way we design, build and support our products; and in our financial results. They are our daily inspiration and support our purpose: Making lives better one call at time, by connecting people to solutions. On the other hand, intravenous drug addicts and alcoholics may be viewed quite differently because they are regarded by some as undeserving of respect.
And it is a commonplace that persons are owed or have a right to equal respect. We treat every employee, customer and supplier with honesty, dignity and respect. Some of these apply only to humans, others to other beings as well. Excellence: We relentlessly pursue excellence in everything we do, every day. Underlying beliefs supporting this objective: Definition of values The highest standards of honesty and integrity are critical to developing customer and stakeholder loyalty. We believe government resources are more productively used in meeting human needs than in building and maintaining weapons systems. It is part of everyday wisdom that respect and self-respect are deeply connected.
Because the dominant Kantian conception of persons grounds dignity in three things—equality, agency, and individuality—we can further distinguish three kinds of recognition self-respect. Individuals can be the objects of appraisal respect either as persons or as engaged in some pursuit or occupying some role. Evaluative self-respect contains the judgment that one is or is becoming the worthy kind of person one seeks to be, and, more significantly, that one is not in danger of becoming an unworthy kind of person Dillon 2004. The former, we regard as a universal obligation that people have toward other people in general. Although persons are the paradigm objects of moral recognition respect, it is a matter of some debate whether they are the only things that we ought morally to respect. It means being polite and kind always, because being kind to people is not negotiable.
And different kinds of individuals may be given different opportunities in different sociocultural contexts to acquire or develop the grounds of the different kinds of self-respect Dillon 1997, Moody-Adams 1992—93, Meyers 1989, Thomas 1983b. In Chinese culture, there is not much participation in physical contact, especially when doing business because this can be seen as too casual, thus disrespectful. This consciousness of subordination involves a painful, humbling feeling insofar as our self-love our efforts to satisfy our desires and pursue our ends is constrained and our self-conceit our attempts to esteem ourselves independently of moral considerations is struck down by the moral law's claim to supreme authority. For now, we must address the question, What is it to be an end in itself and to possess dignity? It may be possible to act in a way that is interpreted as respectful without having the corresponding attitude of respect. Another view is that there are no circumstances under which it is morally justifiable to not respect a person, and that even torturers and child-rapists, though they may deserve the most severe condemnation and punishment and may have forfeited their rights to freedom and perhaps to life, still remain persons to whom we have obligations of respect, since the grounds of respect are independent of moral merit or demerit.
However, many philosophers have argued that the two attitudes are importantly different for example, Darwall 1977, Sachs 1981, Chazan 1998, Harris, 2001, Dillon 2004, 2013. Our sense of self value and respect begins at our birth and is forged throughout our childhood. Respect has great importance in everyday life. Bowing is generally reserved as a sign of respect for elders and ancestors. We become so familiar with words that we use every day, that we believe that we know implicitly what they mean. In particular, Kant's view that the rational will which is common to all persons is the ground of respect is thought to ignore the moral importance of the concrete particularity of each individual, and his emphasis on autonomy, which is often understood to involve the independence of one person from all others, is thought to ignore the essential relationality of human beings for example, Noggle 1999, Farley 1993, Dillon 1992a, E.
Why Self-Respect Is Important Self-respect is a form of love for and acceptance of oneself. It is true that evaluative self-respect and self-esteem both involve appraising oneself favorably in virtue of one's behavior and personal traits, and that a person can have or lack either one undeservedly. This may reflect an asymmetry between the two: although our evaluative respect for others may have no effect on them, perhaps because we don't express it or they don't value our appraisal, our own self-evaluation matters intensely to us and can powerfully affect our self-identity and the shape and structure of our lives. We seek and support nonviolent ways to achieve peace and justice. Dignity is also incomparable worth: it can't be compared with, exchanged for, or replaced by any other value, whereas the very purpose of a price is to establish comparative value. In his doctrine of justice he argues that persons, by virtue of their rational nature, are bearers of fundamental rights, including the innate right to freedom, which must be respected by other persons and by social institutions.
