Take time to think about your personal philosophy of nursing practice

In providing an account of love, philosophical analyses must becareful to distinguish love from other positive attitudes we taketowards persons, such as liking. Intuitively, love differs from suchattitudes as liking in terms of its “depth,” and theproblem is to elucidate the kind of “depth” we intuitivelyfind love to have. Some analyses do this in part by providing thinconceptions of what liking amounts to. Thus, Singer (1991) and Brown(1987) understand liking to be a matter of desiring, an attitude thatat best involves its object having only instrumental (and notintrinsic) value. Yet this seems inadequate: surely there areattitudes towards persons intermediate between having a desire with aperson as its object and loving the person. I can care about a personfor her own sake and not merely instrumentally, and yet such caringdoes not on its own amount to (non-deficiently) loving her, for itseems I can care about my dog in exactly the same way, a kind ofcaring which is insufficiently personal for love.

10 Women of Philosophy, and Why You Should ..

Very interesting question. I suppose I have to agree with Karin's answer. Very well said. I think my philosophy basically breaks down to: 1. Doing what is in the best interest of the client(s.) 2. Practice and preach safety over pride. 3. Be open to alternative methods. (Continuing education) 4.
Lastly, I will touch on my views of the educational system itself and specifically the field of second language studies, and my opinions about the institution in which we are situated.


Before beginning my discussion about my own personal philosophy of teaching, I think it is important to think about my own schooling as a child and how that has shaped my views.


Personal Identity | Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy

Think of your philosophy as your personal brand, a clear-cut statement of who you are and how you apply that to your work.

Thanks for writing this! When I think of why we do what we do, I can’t but help to think about when I decided to become a librarian. I know this isn’t semantically perfect, but I came up with it before library school, before a library job, and before I knew any library jargon. I became a librarian so that I could contribute to people’s life in a positive way by helping them connect with information they needed. I remind myself of this all the time when I see bad news for libraries/librarians.

What does being the person that you are, from one day to the next, necessarily consist in
Hi Emily. I’ll just add two things to a good conversation. I have found the book Start With Why to be of some help in understanding the importance of putting the why before the what or how of what you do. I tried to share some of my thoughts about it in this column – on the need to perhaps understand and express your personal why – before you can move on the why of the profession – and the connection between the two. Not exactly a statement of philosophy, but more of a reflection on why academic librarians are passionate about their work (or should be) – – I was trying to articulate more of a personal philosophy on the why of academic librarianship – mostly about building relationships and making a difference in them.

Great piece! Thanks for writing this!
I actually do think many librarians are engaged in a philosophical praxis of librarianship. However, it comes in the form of blogs, websites, etc. where the conversation has not been centralized. We have the ability to state our thoughts and opinions to the world and to each other about the things that we deal with on a day to day basis. Having personal platforms allows us to wax poetic, as well as philosophical, about librarianship; Reading presentations and stories online of librarians in real-time gives me this impression – and I gobble it up! The downside is that I need to search for it if I’m not already subscribed to a blog or following someone. Having these conversation centralized, or organized (we are librarians after all), might naturally create what could become the updated philosophy of librarianship. (I have absolutely no idea how this could even be possible, given the amount of library-related information out there, so this is more of a comment than a question!)

Human Knowledge: Foundations and Limits

So why is the FCC putting so much money toward a Digital Literacy Corps without enough involvement from the library community? Because we don’t have the tradition of being engaged in a philosophical praxis of librarianship. Having a habit of thinking deeply and critically about what it is that we do and why we do it, on a large scale, would enable and empower us to create good language and hopefully, in turn, to influence on a large scale the perception and understanding of librarians’ value to and impact on society.

My aim here is not to contribute to the groundswell of victim rhetoric that surrounds the de-funding and de-professionalization of librarianship. Instead, I aim to shine a light on what I think is happening. Namely, we haven’t yet sussed out the philosophy behind what it is that we do.
