Towards an African-Christian Environmental Ethic
15,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Volume 13 of BiAS series brings out into prominence issues at the bottom of dialogue between African and Christian attitudes to nature. The Shona notion of hierarchy of sacredness of nature as opposed to the intrinsic value of nature forms a barrier to a possible reconciliation between Shona and Christian attitudes to nature. This is largely based on the belief that some aspects of nature in Shona are imbued with spirits. Although sacred aspects may be accidentally protected, there is a weakness in the discriminative attitudes that leaves other aspects vulnerable. It appears the Shona have yet to extricate themselves from an ethic based on fear of ancestral spirits to conscious assessment of scientific causes of ecological imbalances. Shona attitudes to nature fail to take account of the denial of the sacredness of some aspects of nature. The Christian attitudes to nature on the other hand, propound the doctrine of the equal worth and equal integrity of all aspects of nature, rather than a discriminative sacredness of nature. The attitudes are, however, based on the assumption that nature is purely material. This position results into divergent attitudes to nature. Attitudes to nature presented from a Christian perspective appear reluctant to identify divinity with natural phenomena. Christianity suggests the idea of creation value to bridge this gap. To this end, the creation value to which Christian attitudes tend to lend support, might well act as common denominator between Shona and Christian attitudes to nature particularly in the light of eco-spirituality and move towards African-Christian environmental ethics.

An Ubuntu/Hunhu Appraisal of the Ethics of Whis...
49,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The study appraises the highly contested concept of whistle blowing in the field of business ethics through the philosophy of ubuntu/hunhu. In order to unpack some of the controversies around whistle blowing, the following questions are raised: What is whistle blowing? Is it different from back-biting or mere reporting or wrong-doing? What are the positive and negative implications of whistle blowing? Is it an alien concept among the Shona? In the process of grappling with these questions, the dissertation unravels the nature of whistle blowing and ubuntu/hunhu .All this is done through desk interrogation of both Occidental and African ethicists like T. De George, R.A. Larmer, Gene G. James, R.A. Buchholz and S.A. Rosenthal, N. Mkhize, Gade and F. Mangena, just to mention a few. Developing from the Shona concept of kurova bembera, this work shows that whistle blowing is not an alien concept among the Shona. In fact, the study brings to the fore benefits of whistle blowing in safeguarding African collectivism, dynamism in ubuntu/hunhu acculturation as it appraises the hybridised practise of whistle blowing.

The Ethics of Euthanasia Among the Ndau
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book explores the notion of euthanasia as a highly contested concept in the field of Medical Ethics. In order to unpack some of the controversies around euthanasia, the following pertinent questions are raised: 1. How is euthanasia defined and understood in Western and African contexts? 2. What are the ethical implications of euthanasia for those that practise it? 3. Is euthanasia a foreign concept among the Shona people in general and the Ndau people of Chipinge, South-East Zimbabwe in particular? In the course of coming to grips with these questions, the book explores the nature of euthanasia, its benefits and disadvantages and how various societies view it. The book refers to both Occidental and African secondary sources in Social Ethics such as James Rachels, Bonnie Steinbock, William H. Shaw, Peter Kasenene and Munyaradzi Mawere. It develops Munyaradzi Mawere s (2009) thesis in which he regards euthanasia as morally repugnant and alien among the Shona people of Zimbabwe. In the main, this book endeavours to argue that euthanasia is not a new concept among the Shona, particularly within the Ndau people s communities in Chipinge, South-East Zimbabwe.

Shona Proverbs and Parables
31,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This collection of Shona Proverbs and Parables contains some of the most thought-provoking and contemporary proverbs and parables emerging from Zimbabwe. The collection links the pre-colonial Shona cultural expressions with the contemporary Shona folklore. The proverbs and parables offer penetrating questions and induce debate on the significance of the study of proverbs and parables. As well as being universal, they reflect their cultural roots. While the proverbs and parables provide amusement, they deftly impart lessons for living. The literal translations for each proverb and parable add insights for better understanding. There are times when 'a small bird which does not search for food does not get fat', just as a person who is not willing to explore new ventures remains static. 'A bird does not abandone its way of singing' like the old habits that die hard. What of 'the one who recognises a path through a rock who is the only one that uses that path'! Surely, are those who are vociforous in condemning a wrong-doing not the chief culprits? It's no exaggeration to say this collection of Shona proverbs and parables is not only a source of inspiration to the young Zimbabwean generation, but has application for those studying African folklore and behaviour, sociology and ethics.
