Work-Life Balance and its Effect on Ethical Decision Making
A 28 page paper discussing how "workaholism" may affect individuals' ethical decision-making abilities. The paper includes a review of literature in work-life balance; a discussion of the philosophical base of ethical decision-making; and a review of how "labor saving" devices at home and work during the last half of the 20th century have resulted in less leisure time rather than more. When those individuals with poor work-life balance – whether by their own doing or through requirements of the employer – "live" the job, then they have little time to think before acting and merely react. The annotated bibliography lists 23 sources.
Job Satisfaction and Various Contributing Factors
An 18 page research paper investigating positive factors of job satisfaction among public-sector administrators. Job satisfaction typically has been seen as being uniform among workers, whether those workers are employed in the public or private sectors. Recent research indicates that satisfaction factors vary between the sectors, however. Findings of this research indicate that in addition, those factors also vary between levels of responsibility in the public sector. Also, other issues not related to actual job duties can affect job satisfaction, such as the ability to more comfortably combine work and family life. There were time constraints on this work; the paper recommends that the research methods be modified in the future in order to allow more time for respondents' to participate and that public-service agencies simply ask their employees what would make their work lives both easier and more rewarding so that conditions can better be tailored to the needs of employees of individual government agencies. Bibliography lists 39 sources.
Aquinas by F.C. Copleston
A 3 page essay that analyzes F.C. Copleston's Aquinas, An Introduction to the life and work of the Great Medieval Thinker (1955). The writer argues that Copleston offers a balanced and well-written account of Aquinas' life and his contributions to theology and philosophy. This examination of Copleston's text shows that his interpretation of Aquinas' work is enlightening and insightful, particularly in regards to Aquinas' cosmological argument on the existence of God.
