Personal, family and communal values
This class aims to give a comprehensive understanding of the values that we live with. Values are standards of behaviour and an individual’s judgement of what they view as important in their life. Some common examples are responsibility, compassion, discipline and honesty, to name but a few. Simply put, values are our priorities. Deep down, they measure the outcome of a person’s lived experience.
Families serve as value transmitters since they affect the next generation’s character and public behaviour. Religion and spirituality also play an essential role in shaping our mindset and communication style. Additionally, community values, also known as societal norms, vary from one community to another and are usually enforced via laws, establish a sense of public order.
This class will provide a wide array of topics that will be taught and discussed so that students will be more aware of their participation in society. The effects of that participation is what contributes to the foundation of the community.
During the module, our students will:
- Gain an understanding of how our society functions through value.
- Learn how value-driven our lives really are.
- Get a philosophical and anthropological comprehension of how values affect each individual.
- Learn the significance of communication and openness.
- Understand how society is structured and its effects on human thought.
