Cisneros, César

THE TOURISM INDUSTRY OF ETHICS AND TOURISM
Constan?a ENEA
Management & Marketing , 2007,
Abstract: The tourism industry is one of the largest industries in the world, and despite recent events that have made its operating environment more complex, the industry continues to grow [Theobald, 2005, Global Tourism, 3rdedn., Butterworth-Heinemann/Elsevier]. Commensurate to the size of the industry is a growth in the number of students pursuing degree courses in tourism around the world. Despite an increasingly sophisticated literature, the relative recency of the industry and its study has meant little attention has been paid in the ethics literature to the dilemmas facing tourism managers and its students. Based on interviews with senior members of the tourism industry six scenarios are developed with pertinence to the challenges faced by industry practitioners today.
Tourism and Community Capacity Building: A Literature Review
Fariborz Aref,Marof B. Redzun
Pakistan Journal of Social Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: Tourism as an industry is increasing rapidly in developing countries. Tourism is simultaneously portrayed as a destroyer of culture, undermining social norms and economies, degrading social structures, stripping communities of individuality and as a savior of the poor and disadvantaged, providing opportunities and economic benefits, promoting social exchange and enhancing livelihoods. The purpose of this study is to explore the concept of community capacity building with respect to tourism development. I discuss how the processes of community capacities (individual, organizational and community) and community empowerment draw from and contribute to the physical, social and human capital essential to community based tourism. In this way, I review literature on community capacity building and discuss the related concepts of community capacities, community empowerment and community participation, with particular attention to how they may apply to communitybased tourism. The literature included in this review, draws from experience in a variety of disciplines, namely community psychology, personnel management, natural resource management, sociology and international development.
Sociology as the Philosophy of the Future  [cached]
Antoni Lindgren
Asian Social Science , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/ass.v8n8p45
Abstract: In the beginning of sociology it was a philosophy for promoting the Good society. Sociology was what we in Feuerbach’s terms may call a “philosophy of the future”. The German enlightenment is crucial if one wants to go beyond: create an alternative to today’s sociology. Kant’s notion of experience bridges the abyss created by the empiricists and rationalists by placing knowledge in man. Sociology is very much a heritage of the French Enlightenment, Auguste Comte (1798-1857) and Emile Durkhein (1858-1917). They thought of themselves as positivists, i.e., as doing something “objective”. At the same time as heirs of the ideas of Enlightenment they wanted sociology to be used in order to improve society, to create a Good society. Comte had a view of this whole – society - in terms of Man. Lost in Durkheim is this idea of man developing in and through society, reflecting a change in the social context, in the development of the capitalist society. After the death of Durkheim in 1917 sociology holds a marginal position in the French society but then in the late 1940’s it rises again and in this new sociology American sociology was dominating, becoming an applied science. Today sociology continues this empiricist tradition. It is claimed that society has become something out-of-control. Instead we should follow its French and German roots. Understanding society as a reflection of ourselves, of man is what we need in order to create a Good society for everyone, this also should be the first principle of sociology as the philosophy of the future.
ASSISTED-SUICIDE TOURISM: IS IT TOURISM?  [PDF]
Gregory Higginbotham
Tourismos : an International Multidisciplinary Journal of Tourism , 2011,
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to employ basic social psychological concepts in the interrelated fields of recreation, leisure, and tourism in an effort to examine if the medical tourism segment of assisted-suicide tourism is in fact a valid form of tourism. The comparative analysis reveals that although possessing an intrinsic motivation and an element of perceived freedom, travel for assisted-suicide is detached from the rewarding outcomes one normally receives from recreation, leisure, and tourism. Moreover, the consumption of tourism products is imparting an impression of actual tourism, whilst in reality the assisted-suicide experience is very much uninvolved in the true recreational and leisure aspects of tourism. The results of this paper are valuable for medical tourism and the tourism industry by helping both to avoid sectors that do not theoretically fit under their designations.

Tourism in Nepal: A Historical Perspective and Present Trend of Development  [PDF]
Hari Prasad Shrestha,Prami Shrestha
Himalayan Journal of Sociology and Anthropology , 2012, DOI: 10.3126/hjsa.v5i0.7039
Abstract: Tourism is the movement or travel of people from one place to another; whether it is within their own country or to other countries, for pleasure, business, pilgrimage and other purpose. The evolution of tourism dates back to ancient times. In Nepal, tourism, despite having a long history was, developed since 1950s only. The recent trend of tourists' arrival in Nepal seems satisfactory. However, from the perspective of tourism based resources and its availability in the country seems rather pessimistic. To promote tourism sector and its contribution to socio-economic sector of the country, we need to utilize available resources properly and beneficially. For this, there is need of dynamic and tourism friendly policy and joint effort of the government and the private sector as well.

Political Sociology and Anthropology in Education
Michael Joseph Francisconi
New Proposals : Journal of Marxism and Interdisciplinary Inquiry , 2008,
Abstract: Political Sociology is the study of power in a social setting. Political sociology explores the everyday experiences of people and the shaping of their economic position in a particular society, and the world economy that molds most political issues. Anthropology gives this analysis a historical and cross-cultural reference point, supplementing sociology. We professors must engage in seditious sabotage within the ranks of the university and call everything into question, including higher education. We must explore the historical and sociological roots of all academic departments. We must examine who benefits and who doesn’t by the underlying assumptions. We must ask, “How does what we teach fit into the ideology of hegemony?” Education that is not subversive is not education.
The Environment and a Globalizing Sociology  [cached]
Randolph Haluza-DeLay,Debra J. Davidson
The Canadian Journal of Sociology , 2008,
Abstract: The challenges for sociology posed by global environmental crisis are two-fold. First, the growing prevalence of environmental dilemmas in global society demand that a globalizing sociology must also be an environmental sociology. This requires the need for the discipline to refine its ability to integrate into its conceptual frameworks environmental influences on social change. Second, the potential effectiveness of society’s strategic responses to environmental crises is dependent upon the degree to which understanding the generation of environmental problems and responding to them are sociologically informed. Consequently, sociologists are in a position to make important contributions to environmental improvement, by bringing sociological research to bear on environmental discourses within civil society. However, this can only be done if the first challenge is addressed.
Mystical Jewish Sociology  [cached]
Philip Wexler
Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies , 2007,
Abstract: The paper begins by engaging Mircea Eliade’s undervaluation of the importance of classical sociology of religion, namely, Durkheim and Weber, and goes on to show how much they share with him, particularly with regard to a critique of modern European civilization, and of the foundational importance of religion in society. This “other”, non-positivist, non-reductionist face of Durkheim and Weber is elaborated by showing their religious, even “primordial” approaches to the religious bases of society and culture. Eliade’s criticism of sociology is further misplaced, given the decline of the sociological regime of knowledge, and the accuracy of Eliade’s prescient expectation of a cosmic rather than historical orientation, and the current importance of religion and “spirituality” for socio-cultural life, generally. The displacement of secular social theory by social and psychological understanding explicitly based in religious thought is explored in several domains and religious traditions. The paper emphasizes, however, a sociology created from within the streams of Jewish mysticism, and examples are offered. The line of Romanian scholars of religion, including Eliade, Idel and Culiano, is seen as less than apparently dissonant with both the sociology of religious experience, and the post-sociological turn to creating social theory from within religious, and particularly, mystical traditions.
