This new reform of adding the Global Resources Dividend would place more of the burden upon the richer countries that can no longer base their demands on their economic and military strength but assist in creating transparency within these reformed global institutions. They include countries that export resources such as oil and would pay taxes that would ultimately provide for the greater good in aid to prevent world poverty. The argument put forward by both philosophers against non-governmental organizations is challenging as they “can never be the primary agents of justice and aid in the long run for several reasons” (Brooks 435) because they are not accountable for their actions and aims, they are dependent on donor countries, and the aid they give is subject to what the ruler of the country receiving aid wants....   [tags: Poverty ]

Anthropology - Anthropology Works Cited Missing Anthropology is a discipline studying flux and change in human communities and definitions of identity, mirroring the dynamic play of modernist reconceptualizations of meaning. As an academic discipline, anthropology demands a realization of the interconnectedness between human groups, a heightened abstraction of vocabulary and tools with which to articulate these connections, and self reflexive sensitivity to its history. In this same vein, modernism, as a movement of avant-garde ideas and art forms, draws community to study of itself, demands its own vocabulary of critique, and harkens back to the history of events that prompted the movement....   [tags: Anthropological Culture Essays] 367 words

God and the Caducity of Being: Jean-Luc Marion and Edith Stein on Thinking God - God and the Caducity of Being: Jean-Luc Marion and Edith Stein on Thinking God ABSTRACT: Jean-Luc Marion claims that God must no longer be thought of in terms of the traditional metaphysical category of Being, for that reduces God to an all too human concept which he calls "Dieu." God must be conceived outside of the ontological difference and outside of the question of Being itself. Marion urges us to think of God as love. We wish to challenge Marion’s claim of the necessity to move au-delà de l’être by arguing that Marion presents a very limited understanding of Being: he interprets the Being of God as causa sui....   [tags: Philosophical Philosophy God Papers]
