Status Values


The knowledge is the true belief and justified, it is when what we believe to be, it corresponds as what really it is. The knowledge must be proven to be accepted as true, this demand a complex process of doubt, refutation and evidence. In end, to have knowledge on something demand a deepening episteme that nor always it is inexorable. Then, to be certain, or to have knowledge is one practical very difficult of appropriation, must accept humblly that nothing we know. But for a certain cognitivo comfort, that is, not to live in an absolute uncertainty, nor if really we exist, we can assume some momentneas truths, but we cannot affirm that they will always be thus.

Without involving the physics, the mathematics, geometry, or any positivista science, that always assumes the characteristic of irrefutable, I will give the observvel example of the discrimination and the preconception, a subject that it can seem complex, multifaceted and questionable, but it will consider a knowledge source observvel by means of an inductive method. To sound (2011) claims that in the neoliberal and hiper-consumista present time, an only preconception that exists he is social/the financial one, nor the homofobia, racism, etnocntrica, nothing are compared with the preconception to the poor person, can be black, homosexual, ugly, low, of different beliefs, that the individual will be respected will be itself detainer of ownerships or values you observed and acceptable as social. According to Botton (2003) to have status, that is, to be detainer of such social condition, it means the legitimacy to receive the love social, therefore so it is disputed. Not to have status, or not to have qualities you observed, it means that the individual is not deserving of the love of the world, or as Botton said (2003), ‘ ‘ not to have virtudes’ ‘. Therefore the consumable goods that confer status the definitive individual, are coated with a imagtica virtuosity, that is, when it is possessed, this ownership confers it status. Summarizing, the rich one is virtuous for being rich, or representing at least three basic virtues: Shrewdness, perseverance and courage. Exactly knowing that its wealth can be proceeding business-oriented illicit, or of inheritance, and sponsorships (as it is very common in the Brazilian politics).

The treatment that the poor person receives from the society, of the familiar ones and of the world is fully observvel. This therefore, as a relation of values you observed, the poor person it does not have none, it is a problem. As soon as this exactly poor (in a hypothetical situation) is rich, the social looks goes to perceive it as a virtuous, full individual of values you observed and then deserving of the adulaes and respect of the world. In short, having this example of the contradiction of values that the world contemporary lives, a observvel and momentary knowledge is built that if alicera in the empirismo, that is, in the simple comment of the subjective social relations.
