News has confirmed, with no details released regarding how his character, Hotch, will be written off the CBS hit procedural when it returns for its 12th season Sept. A big loss for the show, the BAU team and fans, for sure.
The answers to several questions that will help us make a well thought out decision are outlined below. The questions overlap and reinforce each other. People usually intuitively answer these questions. There is no particular order in which the questions are addressed.
The mind often skips several questions, especially when the answer to one clearly shows that a course of conduct leads to results we cannot accept. In that case, we'll look for another way to achieve the How do criminal minds think the or abandon the effort. What Do We Value in Life?
People value many different things. These "values" are not listed in any particular order Values involve how we deal with others. Some people value nurturing for example teachers, social workers, ministers.
Some value being a leader while others want to intimidate people. Still others want to be respected. To one extent or another, everyone values acting ethically towards people, animals and the environment for example, The Six Pillars of Character.
Often, the values that we ignore in our haste to satisfy some short term need are ethical values. Values are often in conflict and everyone has a way in which they rank what they value.
The rankings are often intuitive and not necessarily logical or well thought out. They are personal and unpredictable. For some values we don't even know that we have them until something happens that brings the value to our attention. For example, without thinking much about it, a professional thief may risk his life by diving into a river to save another person from drowning.
An honest man may not be able to make himself take the risk of jumping into the water. It's not always easy to know what we really value. We must be honest with ourselves and perceptive about how we will feel about the consequences of our actions, now and in the future.
Why is Acting Ethically an Important Value? People live together on one planet with other people and animals.
Our most important focus in life is the people we associate with, our families, friends, fellow students or workers, and our larger community.
Any action we take, like a stone thrown into a pool of water, has effects which ripple out in many directions, affecting others and sometimes the Earth itself. Every person or animal affected by a decision that we make, including ourselves, is called a "stakeholder". To be able to determine if we really want to do something, we need to think about how it will affect the stakeholders and what they value in their lives.
It can be said that people act ethically because they feel good about themselves when they do and bad about themselves when they don't.
However, it's much more than that. Acting ethically involves how we view our fundamental relationship with the Universe.
Many people believe that a Supreme Being has prescribed ethical rules of conduct. Others believe that the Supreme Being has supplied some general principles and left the rest for us to work out.
Some, both religious and non-religious, have come to believe that personal relationships, work and professional relationships, and society as a whole, all work better when people act ethically.
We have come to believe that true morality always has a spiritual component. This spiritual component does not have to be religious in the sense of belief in a Supreme Being, but it must contain a sense of the relation of the person to others and to the Universe.
Interestingly enough, the ethical principles in most cultures have many similarities. These "consensus" values have several formulations."Sometimes there are no words, no clever quotes to neatly sum up what's happened that day.
Sometimes you do everything right, everything exactly right, and still you feel like you failed." Beyond that, Criminal Minds is notable for a mostly gender-equal cast, its standards of realism for the motives.
