BEDS-001: Overview and Perspectives of Values Theory

IGNOU via Swayam

Overview

Values are the principles to guide our thought and behavior. They determine not only what we do, but also who we are. Living life by a basic set of values makes life fulfilling, happy and successful, it adds quality to life. Our values reflect what is significant to us in life. They are often our personal guiding principles or life goals. While we may have a variety of life goals that are specific to a situation, like getting a job or a promotion, running a marathon,, our values are life-goals that are not specific to any one situation. Values guide our behavior and attitudes in all aspects of our life, including our home life, our work life and our social life. Values enhance our lives and also the lives of other members in the society.Course Credit: 4
