How Morality Changes in a Foreign Language

Our habits? Our aesthetic tastes? Our memories? If pressed, I would answer that if there is any part of me that sits at my core, that is an essential part of who I am, then surely it must be my moral center, my deep-seated sense of right and wrong. And yet, like many other people who speak more than one language, I often have the sense that I’m a slightly different person in each of my languages—more assertive in English, more relaxed in French, more sentimental in Czech. Psychologists who study moral judgments have become very interested in this question. In a 2014 paper led by Albert Costa, volunteers were presented with a moral dilemma known as the “trolley problem”: imagine that a runaway trolley is careening toward a group of five people standing on the tracks, unable to move. Most people agree that they would. Why does it matter whether we judge morality in our native language or a foreign one?

Getting to Si, Ja, Oui, Hai, and Da. Tim Carr, an American working for a defense company based in the midwestern United States, was about to enter a sensitive bargaining session with a high-level Saudi Arabian customer, but he wasn’t particularly concerned.

Getting to Si, Ja, Oui, Hai, and Da

Carr was an experienced negotiator and was well-trained in basic principles: Separate the people from the problem. Define your BATNA (best alternative to a negotiated agreement) up front. Focus on interests, not positions. He’d been there, read that, and done the training. The lengthy phone call to Saudi Arabia proceeded according to plan. PHILOSOPHY BOOKS PAGE. Peter%20Deunov. What You Should Know When Jumping Timelines. By Kim Hutchinson, Guest writer for Timeline jumping refers to the shifting of awareness from one series of possibilities to another.

What You Should Know When Jumping Timelines

If you are in one timeline and you do not like how things are unfolding, then you can move to another timeline in which your dreams are more attainable. That’s because life makes use of all possibilities. Simply put, every version of events plays out. The options you didn’t choose in this timeline are being explored in others. For the linear, sequential brain, this concept can be overwhelming.

What purpose does this serve? Your eternal soul requires novelty, along with opportunities to learn and create. Happen simultaneously. As our 3-D experiment is winding down, our awareness is awakening to the existence of parallel, concurrent creations. Examples of Timeline Jumping. The Matrix Program is Crashing.

300+ Mind Expanding Documentaries

I think they are incredible tools for learning and increasing our awareness of important issues. The power of an interesting documentary is that it can open our minds to new possibilities and deepen our understanding of the world. On this list of mind expanding documentaries you will find different viewpoints, controversial opinions and even contradictory ideas. Critical thinking is recommended. I'm not a big fan of conspiracy documentaries but I do like films that challenge consensus reality and provoke us to question the everyday ideas, opinions and practices we usually take for granted. Watching documentaries is one of my favorite methods of self-education. The Zeitgeist Movement Global.
