Just Add Water DVD - Why Ethics Courses/Why There Are No Hit
by John Patrick, MD
Fifth in a series of "instant meetings." Session 1
Why Ethics Courses Do Not Make Us Ethical
. In this post-modern trend in medicine, what we once called "medical ethics" is now "bioethics." Could this change explain why ethics courses are so unsuccessful in medical universities today? The moral relativist and multi-culturalist ideas have forced ethics into a packaged deal that Dr. Patrick calls the "Georgetown Mantra: autonomy, justice, beneficence, and non-malfeasance." He brings to this presentation an intelligent, theoretical discussion on the "deeply covenanted" versus the "totalitarian" viewpoints on ethics and living within the framework of the law. Our self-understanding is at stake.
Session 2 -
Why There Are No Hittites on the Streets of New York
. When the Jews were an entire nation, the Hittites were a large empire. Civilizations come and go, but why do they not survive? Dr. Patrick teaches virtue is necessary in maintaining a flourishing culture and that we must be passionate about truth and goodness. While his lecture opens your eyes to the path of a decaying society, his conclusion will inspire you to get back to the dining room table where "real education" is taught. How we teach the children will determine their outcome and the survival of the society in which they live. Dr. Patrick clearly explains the reasons for the decay of the Hittites at the close of this lecture. Session 1 - 26 minutes; Session 2 - 32 minutes.
