    Most young children are aware of death, even if they don’t understand it. Death is a common theme in cartoons and television, and some of a child’s friends may have already lost a loved one. And recently, following the tragic accident whereby an electric wagon carrying schoolchildren collided with a train in Oss, speaking with children about death became unavoidable. Experiencing grief firsthand is a difficult and often confusing process for kids. (language: English) Read more

    Girard lezing 2018: Johan Graafland over eigenbelang, marktwerking en…  deugden! * Girard lezing 2018: Johan Graafland over eigenbelang, marktwerking en… deugden! *
    After the economic crisis, there has been more interest in the role of virtue ethics in economics. This has also increased the interest in Adam Smith, the father of modern economics, who already identified the importance of virtue in a commercial society. If market forces have free play, it is necessary that important economic actors show such virtues as honesty and moderation, in order for the economic process to serve human well-being. Lack of these virtues can give rise, for instance, to such practices as misuse of accounts for money laundering at ING bank. (language: Dutch) Read more
