Reviews - What do customers think about Character Values: Promoting a Virtuous Lifestyle?
Not all its cracked up to be Jan 3, 2007
This book claims to be "an innovation in relationship dynamics" based upon creating a "hierarchy" of values. There are 2 problems with this book as I see it. The first is that need several Ph D's to be able to read it (I have one, but apparently that wasn't enough!). The second lies in the fundamental premise that one can put values into a "hierarchy". This implies that some values are better than or "more value-able" than others, which is in itself a value-statement. I may value happiness more than peace, relationships more than prosperity, or any other combination; however that would be a "value hierarchy" that would be unique to me and certainly should not be considered to be universal in any sense!
Save your money and don't buy into this author's self-promotion.
A breakthrough in relationship dynamics Nov 3, 2005
Each of the traditional groupings of virtues and values is incorporated into a unified ten-level hierarchy: the first grand unified theory of its kind. The cardinal virtues, classical Greek values, humanistic values (amongst others) are collectively based within a behavioral foundation: wherein permitting a grand-scale synthesis of ethical philosophy and behavioral science. Affiliated applications extend to information technology and ethical artificial intelligence.
