Free Press. Hemp Industries. This one was recommended persistently by my mom until I eventually caved; she swore mastering the rules of civil behavior would stand me in good stead with Coffee Coaster Website readership. I would realize that instead of being a mean and angry SOB and screaming at everyone, if I made nice, people would come around to my way of thinking. Rather, it is , but it's the muscular or the sleek and fast Cutlass Supreme, not the big-ol'-heap-o'-iron Delta Forni points out the ethical component of civility, making distinctions with respect to etiquette, politeness, tolerance, kindness, and so on.

He starts by explaining that civility's " The word derives from the Latin civitas , which means 'city,' especially in the sense of civic community. Good citizens, practicing the nonaggression principle? Well, it's certainly implied isn't it? From my presentation on the Sacred Nonaggression Principle , a significant-other contributed the following key thought:. And civility is certainly right up there as a key value.

And this is a wonderfully useful book. The rules. Just a readthru of the list serves as a reminder of good and prudent behavior, but in the presentation of each Dr. Forni typically provides an idea that makes the rule come to life.

For instance, on rule 1, Forni makes a habit of having his students imagine they're in a cafeteria with him and he asks one of them to pass him the salt. But Forni continues to prompt, "What else? And that's where ethics intersects etiquette. By doing what you are doing, you are not just observing an arbitrary rule.

Your act has an ethical component, since it requires attention and consideration The next person who needs them will not have to chase them around the table. And Forni ends the chapter: "The students are intrigued by this unveiling of implications.

They talk about the salt and the pepper with their friends and their dates. And they begin to understand that a humble book of etiquette can be used as a primer in moral philosophy. This meditation on good manners and their ethical underpinnings both expands and gives focus to the students' awareness of the needs of others It's the scene where Melvin Nicholson tries to convince Carol Hunt that he loves her and they should be together.

Now Melvin has a lot of personality issues that manifest themselves in a host of often extraordinarily comic behavior that would be considered by most people to lack manners, lack civility. Indeed, if fans of the movie were to go through the 25 measures of civil behavior listed above, Melvin crashes and burns on virtually all of them.

But he ultimately comes up smelling like a rose. Well, one could make an argument that—because of the supreme motivation provided by his love for another human being—he moves steadily toward civility in his actions And what does his conscious effort toward civility accomplish?

Leaving aside whether he gets the girl, he takes a big bite out of his deeper psychological problems. Change the behavior, change the man? Not to dwell on psychological theories of behaviorism, cognitive therapy, or any others: even if it cannot be demonstrated that personality orders can be resolved through good manners, good manners certainly don't hurt anything.

Moreover, simply by giving it the good-old college try, you make life for people in your surroundings better—often considerably. Finally, consciousness and civility Candidly, reading such a sneaky and seductive little book as Choosing Civility sneaky and seductive because, as the boss used to say, 'he puts into words stuff you already know' and thus sort of tricks you into coming to grips with deeper ideas reminds me of where I'm not exactly being the best I can be.

Just from Chapter 1: Pay Attention , on more than a handful of occasions I don't really pay attention to people, to what they're telling me, to their body language, to their tone of voice. Even if I can respond logically to their words, I can be oblivious to the subtext and context. Then going down the list by reading through the book, sure, I can be a whole lot better. Not to pick on myself exclusively here, I'll bet the great majority of people can move forward in these civility categories, too.

So how do we get down to it? When you boil down the fundamental quality required of us by the practice of civility, it's consciousness , isn't it? Awareness, consciousness, however you want to name the concept. Which I find fascinating, especially because of my reading of Eckhart Tolle and the commitment he encourages to totally embracing in our lives "the Now" of all that exists.

Personally, I've been moving more and more toward letting go of a longstanding cloud of "reactive mind" that obscures my direct, immediate awareness of things and people. I'm honestly trying, but, like good golf, I'm not one of the types who gets things right, immediately.

Please bear with me. I've also identified—I believe in a benign, easy-to-digest format through my field manual on the Sacred Nonaggression Principle SNaP —how consciousness and consistent observance of the nonaggression principle complement each other in 'making us want to have a better society. And as the wholly believable Melvin shows us in As Good as It Gets , as we make positive changes in our concrete, day-to-day ways of dealing with people, those patterns work their way down into our personal essence.

It's like milk and cookies: Good manners breed consciousness; consciousness breeds good manners. You'll be edified if not invigorated by this disarmingly unpretentious little book from Dr. At the time, where I'm doing a project for him 23 years ago in East Hampton, Long Island, I was explaining either Objectivism or libertarianism, and this was his sage comeback.

The 25 Rules of Considerate Conduct for Healers

Patients want their health care providers to be polite and civil as well as competent. In the first part of this guest commentary, 1 published in the March issue, I offered tips on how to practice etiquette-based medicine, as advanced by Michael W. Forni, PhD, and how these rules may be incorporated into our clinical practice. Etiquette-based medicine is not uniformly practiced today. This lack of civility is not unique to medicine, but an insidious social problem that has escalated over time according to Dr P. Those who wish to improve their healing skills may adapt some of these rules in the care of the patient. Pay attention.
