Values from the principal axiological theories: A priori and independent qualities of things and human acts
AbstractIn the framework of current concerns around reform and administration modernization, values from the main axiological theories (aprioristic qualities and independence of things and human acts) constitutes a subjective approach that departs from the idea that it is the human being, the subject, who assigns values to things. In this direction, the subject cannot be a different entity from valuations and the existence of valuations is only possible on the different human being reactions. Things do not have value by themselves; it is the human being who creates value with her valuations and it is from this that the motivation for this research is born. The theoretical framework of this paper rests on the works of Muñoz (1998), Frondizi (2001), and Marín (1976), amongst others, and under a interpretative symbolic approach by means of a qualitatively, descriptive, no experimental, and documentary analysis. In postmodern management, it is stablished the need of integrating values from democracy with institutional values. Thus, in the framework of etics of postmodern administration, democracy values comform the center of this last one and turn themselves into a guiding approach for the reaching of society´s well being.
