But even during the Renaissance, and as long as Western art was endeavoring to perfect its technique, victories in this realm could only be signalized by success in realistic imitation, since there was no other objective criterion at hand. Thus the masses could still find in the art of their masters objects of admiration and wonder. Even the bird that pecked at the fruit in Zeuxis' picture could applaud.
It has been in search of the absolute that the avant-garde has arrived at abstract or nonobjective art -- and poetry, too. The avant-garde poet or artist tries in effect to imitate God by creating something valid solely on its own terms, in the way nature itself is valid, in the way a landscape -- not its picture -- is aesthetically valid something given, increate, independent of meanings, similars or originals. Content is to be dissolved so completely into form that the work of art or literature cannot be reduced in whole or in part to anything not itself.
 The most obvious conflicts where facts and values commingle are environmental and bioethical conflicts. Contemporary methods of caring for the environment and for human life involve extensive use of science and technology, but are also the application of a core set of values.
If your values are criticized ,
sometimes we need agree "to disagree". Remember: your success in persuading others assumes that the other person is open to being persuaded! Fear: If you are not used to communicating,
especially in writing, you may need to overcome fear on several levels. Writing, unlike unrecorded speech, is a permanent record for all to see, and the "context" is not as important as in speech where context "colors" the words. For example: your readers do not see you, only your words. They do not know what you look like, where you live, who you are.
But first, just what is Weber's own standpoint, as determined by his ultimate values? It is, no doubt, influenced by one of his key concerns: the quality of human being in any given economic and social order. 8 Sometimes, however, his standpoint is nationalistic. And in yet other essays, it champions individual liberty. Indeed, Weber's perspective changes, and it is likely to be driven not by one value but by levels of them, ranging from humanism to a concrete objective. But the fact that Weber had a perspective lends little support to the two-tiered interpretation, other than to show that he believed it was permissible for a social scientist to possess a value-determined standpoint. His treatment of perspective is another matter, however.
Caring for sick patients is a critical life event for the sick patient. I as a nurse will assess every patient with the intention of creating specific plan of care for each individual person. I will collaborate with doctors and other healthcare providers of different departments to provide the best plan of care for each patient. I will implement the plan of care by monitoring my patients as well as teaching each of my patients the importance of good health. I will evaluate how effective the plan of care is and make adjustments as appropriate and when necessary if goal is not achieved. One of the aspect of my job as a nurse that will bring me joy is the psychosocial and emotional support I will provide to my patients and their families.
Put together, these core values reinforce each other. To make an informed choice, people must have valid information. When people make free and informed decisions, they become internally committed to them. When people are committed to a decision, they are likely to make sure that the decision is implemented effectively.
As a nurse, I will practice at a level of autonomy, be in control of decision-making, doctors and other healthcare providers of different departments for collaboration, reliability, liability, and power that have a direct and powerful influence/effect (Sidani, Doran & Mitchell, 7559, ). I will also employ the different nursing theories in doing my job efficiently.
In a stable society that functions well enough to hold in solution the contradictions between its classes, the cultural dichotomy becomes somewhat blurred. The axioms of the few are shared by the many the latter believe superstitiously what the former believe soberly. And at such moments in history the masses are able to feel wonder and admiration for the culture, on no matter how high a plane, of its masters. This applies at least to plastic culture, which is accessible to all.
Furthermore, again despite Portis' claims to the contrary, part of the power and allure of Weber lies in the dual legacy that he handed down: He succeeded, at least in the totality of his work, in being overtly political while remaining true to his integrity as a social scientist. At least one work by Weber -- his short essay titled The President of the Reich -- directly bears this out. And even if, as Portis argues, Weber did become psychologically tormented by the tension he felt between his need to voice his political views and his need to feel integrity as a social scientist, what allowed him, in the end, to succeed in being both political and scientific was his two-tiered approach to value-free social science.
It is the facilitator's role to help the group design its meetings in a way that is consistent with the core values of facilitation. One of the key ways a facilitator does this is by helping groups establish ground rules for an effective process. Ground rules are the rules of conduct or behavioral guidelines that members of the group agree on before proceeding with their meeting. They are based on an assumption of equality and fairness. The idea is that no individual is permitted to dominate a discussion or hold special privilege.
The work of Weber scholars supports this conclusion. Brubaker, for instance, affirms the two-tiered interpretation of Weber's view regarding objectivity:
