Радикальная честность: этот молодой человек всегда говорит именно то, что он думает. Насколько это уместно?
Этот конгрессмен, чтобы дальше жить по Правде, выбирает соврать: сказать о себе неправду газетчикам, сломать себе карьеру, но сохранить судьбу своей дочери.
Реалист Бургомистр знает, что иногда, ради спокойствия близких, по непринципиальным вопросам можно и соврать. Барон Мюнхгаузен, как борец за правду, с ним не согласен.
Барон Мюнхгаузен когда-то может и приврать, но в главном он живет по Правде. Иногда даже, кажется, слишком по Правде...
Правда в отношениях - огромная ценность, но не все эту дорогую вещь могут себе позволить.
Truth is a moral guide of life, important primarily for the Slavic mentality.
It is curious that in the modern Russian consciousness the truth is often considered something negative or exposing. If mat - means from the heart, then it’s true! And if with a polite smile - most likely lies.
Outside of Russian culture, it is often said not about Pravda, but about law-abiding, rules of decency or following religious commandments. In the mentality and vocabulary of business people, this concept is also not used, it speaks about decency and responsibility.
According to Orthodox views, Truth is the way of life that created him and life by the Creator, but to assert that Truth is always and only one is difficult.
The truth of the mother can differ from the truth of the father, the truth in the teenage company differs from the truth of the elderly...
The content of moral values in the concept of truth varies with the changing culture of society.
The first point of the First Russian Truth asserted a blood feud: "If a person kills a man, then the brother takes revenge for (killing) the brother, the son for the father or the cousin, or the nephew from the sister’s side, if there is no one who avenges, put 40 hryvnia for If (killed) there will be Rusyn, Gridin, merchant, slander, swordsman or an outcast and Slovene, then put 40 hryvnia for him. "
It is clear that over time, the legal norms and the vision of people changed, and in connection with this, different truths came into place of one Truth (one source of moral and life norms) - different visions, different legal and different moral norms. To live the Truth is worthy, but when clashes of people living on different Truths begin, life turns into a nightmare.
The fighters for the truth - as a rule, little adequate, aggressive and very difficult to communicate people. Defending their truth, they are ready to destroy both themselves and all who stand in their way. It is worth it if a person lives by the Truth himself, but it seems controversial if people start to impose their truth on others.
In addition to the great Truth with a capital letter, there is "truth from a small letter". It is true in words, the speaking of what a person really thinks, what is the opposite of lies, lies and deceit, the answer to the question whether a person can be trusted. Unfortunately, there is no single true answer: the truth from a small letter is subjective, and different people may have different truths.
"You see the situation one by one, I’m different. You have one truth, I have another."
For psychologists, the truth is parents’ instructions and regulations governing the child’s main relationship with parents, neighbors and authorities. First of all, this is a prescription not to lie to parents when they are asked seriously. Children need to be taught to speak the truth, and support adults in their desire to live in truth and at the same time teach them to think when to tell the truth.
Is it always worth telling the truth?
Truth is not a template, but a landmark. To come to the truth, it is better to use the truth. However, if you act only on a pattern of truth and do not think about long-playing consequences, then you can not get to the truth. It is not so important whether you are telling the truth or lying in every particular life situation. It is important, whether you take care of those who are near you. And if your truth is good for them, you probably will tell the truth. And vice versa. And if you do not know "what the word ... will respond", then you will be careful in words, thinking more about how not to hurt. Neither an interlocutor, nor, incidentally, himself. See →
For people of high culture, who love each other, to tell each other the truth - naturally. When the inner culture begins to fail, when mental sores appear and love gives way to other values, then the defaults begin: at first small, then more, and then there is also a direct lie. The truth in the relationship - a huge value, but not all this expensive thing can afford. Let us be more demanding of ourselves and more tolerant towards those who find it difficult to live in truth!
