  DISTRIBUTIVE JUSTICE
There are several material principles that are often invoked on behalf of certain favored distributions.
The distributive principle of social utility holds that we ought to distribute at least some things in such a way as to maximize a favorable balance between pain and pleasure in the whole community.
Of course, the basic problem of justice is how to determine which material principle is relevant to the distribution of any particular resource.

All rational knowledge is either material or formal: the former considers some object, the latter is concerned only with the form of the understanding and of the reason itself, and with the universal laws of thought in general without distinction of its objects.
Material philosophy, however, has to do with determinate objects and the laws to which they are subject, is again twofold; for these laws are either laws of nature or of freedom.
The former, drawn from the principle of happiness, are built on physical or moral feelings; the latter, drawn from the principle of perfection, are built either on the rational conception of perfection as a possible effect, or on that of an independent perfection (the will of God) as the determining cause of our will.

 Material principle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Christian theology, a material principle is the central teaching of a religion, religious tradition or movement, religious body or organization.
If properly identified and understood, the material principle helps a scholar understand all the teachings of a religious group.
All of the tenets of a doctrinal system can be explained in relationship to its material principle.

In this manner, then, the a priori principles of two faculties of the mind, the faculty of cognition and that of desire, would be found and determined as to the conditions, extent, and limits of their use, and thus a sure foundation be paid for a scientific system of philosophy, both theoretic and practical.
All material principles, then, which place the determining ground of the will in the pleasure or pain to be received from the existence of any object are all of the same kind, inasmuch as they all belong to the principle of self-love or private happiness.
Either a rational principle is already conceived, as of itself the determining principle of the will, without regard to possible objects of desire (and therefore by the more legislative form of the maxim), and in that case that principle is a practical a priori law, and pure reason is supposed to be practical of itself.

The temporary appearance and disappearance of such material interactions confirms the material body is formed of a material energy inferior to the living force, or jiva energy.
The highest planet of the material universe, Brahmaloka, is also subjected to these modes of nature, although the duration of life on that planet, due to the predominance of the mode of sattva, is said to be 4,300,000 x 1,000 x 2 x 30 x 12 x 100 solar years.
The material world is only a shadow representation of the antimaterial world, and intelligent men who are clean in heart and habit will be able to learn, in a nutshell, all the details of the antimaterial world from the text of the Bhagavad-gita, and these are in actuality more exhaustive than material details.

 Principle of Formal and Material Cooperation
Along with the principles of double effect and toleration, the principles of cooperation were developed in the Catholic moral tradition as a way of helping individuals discern how to properly avoid, limit, or distance themselves from evil (especially intrinsic evil) in order to avoid a worse evil or to achieve an important good.
Immediate material cooperation occurs when the cooperator participates in circumstances that are essential to the commission of an act, such that the act could not occur without this participation.
Mediate material cooperation occurs when the cooperator participates in circumstances that are not essential to the commission of an action, such that the action could occur even without this cooperation.

The principle of beneficence may give rise to ethical issues when there is conflict between what is good between nurse and patient, between patient and organizations, between patients themselves, or between states engaged in interstate practice.
While most agree in principle that a patient's good comes before the organization's or nurse's good, nurses often confuse what is good for the patient with what the nurse believes is good for the patient.
At a societal level, the move to interstate licensure itself is implicitly tied to the principle of beneficence.

The distinctive role of mind, the subject and nexus of principle and material force, is to preside over this issuance of principle in its active, material force manifestation as the feelings that arise in re­sponse to concrete situations.
Principle is without form or concreteness; as it fills and is perfectly held by the mind, it is the nature.
With due regard to the complementarity and interdependence of principle and material force and their mutual in­volvement in all feelings, he now points to a form of nontemporal priority of principle in the issuance of the Four Beginnings and of material force in the issuance of the Seven Feelings.

Because of the presence of this antimaterial particle, the material body is progressively changing from childhood to boyhood, from boyhood to youth to old age, after which the antimaterial particle leaves the old, unworkable body and takes up another material body.

Principle governs material force and material force makes manifest principle; the ultimate origin of principle is in a single principle, called the Great Ultimate (tao ch'i), which emanates from Heaven.
The School of Principle believed that there was an immaterial and immutable principle or law that inheres in all things, giving them form, motion, and change.
The scholars of the School of Principle believed in empirical investigation, for they believed that to find the principle of any material process was to find the principle inherent in all material and intellectual processes.

 The Milesians
Knowing the first material principle provides unity to the diversity of experience; understanding what everything ultimately is, in spite of how things appear, enables one to find orderliness underlying the disorderliness of phenomena.
The one is the material principle of all things, whereas the many are the various modifications of this one basic "stuff." Perhaps surprisingly, modern physics seeks the same goal: the most basic of all entities of which all other physical entities are composed.
The Milesians assume that the material principle of all things is that which underlies all change, and, as such, is itself necessarily unchanging.

 20th WCP: Toward a Dynamic Conception of ousia: Rethinking an Aristotelian Legacy
This allows him to affirm the simplicity of the first principle and thus, its authority; for once matter is rejected, there is no other principle that can possibly challenge or resist its absolute hegemony.
Whereas he had established the ultimate authority of the immovable mover by unequivocally rejecting the material principle, here he affirms the decisive role the material principle plays in establishing the ontological identity of sensible ousiai.
The structure of such a conception of identity is fundamentally different from that of the identity of the first mover, for by affirming the material principle, Aristotle attempts to think identity in terms of the irreducible tension of the relation between form and matter.

In fact the sole principle of morality consists in the independence on all matter of the law (namely, a desired object), and in the determination of the elective will by the mere universal legislative form of which its maxim must be capable.
The principle of happiness may, indeed, furnish maxims, but never such as would be competent to be laws of the will, even if universal happiness were made the object.
The commonest intelligence can easily and without hesitation see what, on the principle of autonomy of the will, requires to be done; but on supposition of heteronomy of the will, it is bard and requires knowledge of the world to see what is to be done.

The Vital Principle (also referred to as vitality, animal magnetism or animal electricity /energy) is a substance that gives life to all beings that absorb it, whereby life is an effect produced by the action of an agent (vital principle) on matter.
The basic Vital Principle is the same for all organic beings, but it is modified for each species, giving that species its power of movement and activity, and distinguishing it from inert matter.

I think that Principle #1 is saying that a teacher should really know what it is that he or she teaches.
A good teacher will know the main facts, will know abstract ideas about the material, will know all the aspects of each lesson, and will be able to ask the right questions of his or her students so that they can learn the material.
I think that this principle might be one of the easier ones to accomplish because I feel that I could do well in retaining the information necessary to teach, and I think I could probably come to know the material pretty well.

 The Metaphysical Elements of Ethics by Immanuel Kant (1780)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
But it is not, therefore, useless, much less ridiculous, to trace in metaphysics the first principles of ethics; for it is only as a philosopher that anyone can reach the first principles of this conception of duty, otherwise we could not look for either certainty or purity in the ethical teaching.
If this distinction is not observed; if eudaemonism (the principle of happiness) is adopted as the principle instead of eleutheronomy (the principle of freedom of the inner legislation), the consequence is the euthanasia (quiet death) of all morality.
Now, since this act which determines an end is a practical principle which commands not the means (therefore not conditionally) but the end itself (therefore unconditionally), hence it is a categorical imperative of pure practical reason and one, therefore, which combines a concept of duty with that of an end in general.

 The Man With a Ladder by Thomas R. Kopfensteiner, America: The Catholic Weekly Magazine
In his textbook of moral theology, Henry Davis, an English Jesuit theologian, wrote that of all the principles of moral theology, the principle of material cooperation is the most difficult to apply.
The principle has been at the heart of the work of the U.S. Catholic bishops’ Task Force on Catholics in Political Life, especially since many of the candidates label themselves pro-choice when it comes to the issue of abortion.
The need to be clear about the principle became urgent, however, with one archbishop’s willingness to refuse holy Communion to certain legislators because of their stance on abortion.

Although the material bodies (both gross and subtle) are subject to destruction, the finer, antimaterial particle is eternal.
As long as the nonmaterial particle is within the lump of material energy—known by the names of gross and subtle bodies—then the entity is manifest as a living unit.
Because both the material and antimaterial energies are emanations of the Supreme Transcendence, the Personality of Godhead, it is proper to conclude that I [Lord Krishna] am the ultimate cause of all creations and annihilations.

For love, as an affection, cannot be commanded, but beneficence for duty's sake may; even though we are not impelled to it by any inclination- nay, are even repelled by a natural and unconquerable aversion.
This is practical love and not pathological- a love which is seated in the will, and not in the propensions of sense- in principles of action and not of tender sympathy; and it is this love alone which can be commanded.
It must be freely admitted that there is a sort of circle here from which it seems impossible to escape.

Methodological foundations The principle concept underlying the economy-wide MFA approach is a simple model of the interrelation between the economy and the environment, in which the economy is an embedded subsystem of the environment and — similar to living beings — dependent on a constant throughput of materials and energy.
The material balance reveals the composition of the physical metabolism of an economy and depicts domestic material extraction, imports and exports in physical units, the physical growth of its infrastructure as well as the amount of materials released back to nature.
Material inputs are (a) accumulated within the socio-economic system (net addition to stock, such as infrastructure and durable consumer goods), (b) consumed domestically within the accounting period (in most cases one year) and thus crossing the system boundary as waste and emissions back to nature or (c) exported to other economies.

Neo-Confucianists of Choson were very interested in theories of principle (Li/I) and material force/energy (Ch'i/Ki), which concerned the most metaphysical part of Neo-Confucian philosophy, and the theories of propriety (Li/Ye), which concerned the most practical part of Neo-Confucianism.
According to Yi I (Yulgok:1536-1624), "Principle(Li) is a form or regulative principle that transcends the spatio-temporal realm and the material force(Ch'i) is the material force from which, all of the spatio-temporal existents are made(Li-t'ung Ch'i-Chu)".
Li is the fundamental principle of all being and Ch'i is the substance for all being.
