Que Tal la Justicia Social en los Alumnos de la UIA (Universidad Iberoamericana)? Investigacion sobre los Logros en la Formacion Valoral (What about Social Justice among the Students of the Iberoamerican University? Survey on the Achievements in the Acquisition of Values).
Bazdresch Parada, Juan E.
This survey investigates how the students of social philosophy modify their criteria on basic questions of social justice. A questionnaire of 30 questions, with 5 options, was developed. The five answer/options correspond to the following five schools of social philosophy (five ways of thinking): (1) liberal individualism; (2) humanitarianism; (3) positivism; (4) collectivism; and (5) Christian solidarity. It was given to 300 students in 9 courses at the beginning and the end of the course. Results indicate that the students gained a superficial understanding of social justice, but that the courses did not significantly modify their criteria. The majority of students did not consider that centralized socio-economic conditioning is necessary for people to develop with dignity. Regarding the capital-labor relationship and the right of private property, the students are highly individualistic in their criteria. To understand general principles, it is necessary to first make practical applications. (Author/BZ)
