Comparison of Protagonists in "A Good Man Is Hard to Find" and "Greenleaf"

...Though it is not apparent in O'Conner's style of narration, it seems that the protagonists of both the stories were undeserving of the attention, affection and blessings that they received in their life. Why the two choose to be the way they are or act the way they do, remains a mystery. Both of them are elderly women, but their youth is not discussed in the story, so one can only assume that the two had seen tough times which hardened them emotionally. Their insistence on being morally superior...

Plato’s “The allegory of the Cave”

...Both the leaders and the public are ignorant and corrupt, without true knowledge of themselves or the world, motivated by self-gratification. They are chained in slavery to ignorance and passions, to mob hysteria for or against fleeting issues, believing in the illusions, the shadows. We live in a time of loss of meaning, of crumbling values of truth and morality, of corruption in political life and decline in personal integrity. This is our despair. But there is a hope with Plato’s allegory, ...

Einstein Analysis

...The purpose of Einstein’s letter to Phyllis Wright, or the point he’s trying to get across, is done beautifully as he explains at the end of the letter, “In this way the pursuit of science leads to a religious feeling of a special sort, which is indeed quite different from the religiosity of someone more naïve” (Einstein 10). Of course, for the occasion of his letter, his context is well put with many examples and explanations within it. Einstein effectively includes logos, or clearly e...

One day, my sister didn't tell me she threw away my teddy bear own "accident." So I went on thinking I lost somewhere or someone stole it. However, though she spared me from th...

TOK - Does all knowledge require some kind of rational basis?

...In my past I have wanted few things more than I wanted to stand on the podium, while I stood on the start line of the grade six cross country city finals. The odds weren’t in my corner, but I could fight that. My stride was shorter. It didn’t matter. I wanted it so badly that I believed I would do it -- that I knew it. When you want something badly enough, you will believe that it is possible, because that is the only way that you can accomplish it. When you are certain that you will succeed...

...But sometimes we failed ; we failed to teach one another the competence we need. We are untrained in excellence which makes a man passionately desire to be a perfect citizen , who knows how to rule and to obey with justice and wisdom. Now , whom can we blame ? To whom will we point our fingers ? - TO NO ONE – but to ourselves. Yes , we are . Ask me why? It is because we are part of each other's life. Remember, if someone was about to slip , someone else could catch him. But the question is, "...

Augustine and Skepticism

...Although the ideas of academic and total skeptic ism sought to disprove a need or even the logic behind philosophy, scholars such as St. Augustine attempted to prove that despite the fact that we do not have total knowledge in everything, we are not totally void of knowledge. The three refutations of Augustine serve to help us remember that just as there is an opposite to nearly everything, the concept of skepticism can always be rebutted when it comes to knowledge and our understanding of the w...

The Novice Critical Analysis

...Does that mean that he is in this situation because he only cared about his boat? Not entirely, but there could be some truth to the statement (although readers don’t even know for sure, as Valgardson does not reveal the cause for the wreck in the excerpt). Furthermore, while some readers may propose the idea that the protagonist somehow comes to terms with his ideology and snaps out of his isolated mindset, the narrator’s techniques and subtleties would likely suggest this to be false, as d...

...From the young to adults and from schools to work environments, people are going over about the truth shows they have seen. The reality programs have actually become a typical subject for the individuals that seperates the various topic for various age variety.

Parents and children will not be able to interact properly and conflicts might increase. Children will believe that their pare...

Sergei Eisenstein vs Andre Bazin

...Just because Eisenstein finds meaning through unraveling symbolic juxtaposing images being slammed back to back and Bazin through studying the event (fact) when there is no need to interrupt the fact with more images. So whose ideology achieves true cinematic truth? Bazin’s realism or Eisenstein’s Kino-Fist formalism? Well, the conclusion one might draw is that there is no ‘right or wrong’ way. Both ideologies have their places but, ironically, they are incomplete without each other. Baz...

Always telling the truth is the most important consideration in any relation between people?

...One day, by accident, a wolf attacked to his sheep, and he cried and demanded help from people, but nobody believed him because they were thinking that he is lying again. Another reason for my propensity to say the truth is that not only does truth strengthen the friendships among people, but it can also give an assurance to them. Indeed, when you lie, you cannot feel calm because you worry that someone may perceive your lie. On the other hand, honesty is not always the best policy. There is suc...

Movie “Himala” by Ishmael Bernal

...The message of the film is that to do not believe everything you see, for we may see a slightly skewed image of the truth. In the film, it was said that Elsa had healing powers, but not once did a person actually thank her for healing her or a cured person appeared. This may tell us that Elsa never had healing powers or that the people she was healing were in on the lie. We can also take away from the film that if we are to believe in God, we should believe in God himself, not on any person clai...

“Allegory of the Cave” Analysis

...Finally the word light or the Sun, used to represent the ultimate truth, the answers found to those erroneous beliefs that you thought were true. I completely agree with Plato and I think we can apply this logic to many equations we face in life as intelligent, moral and empathetic people. I learned that people see reality as the visible world when reality really is more than the visible world. This text helped to push me along the way because it is directly related with college life, where a s...

Recognition and Reversal: Othello

...Othello requests them not to “lay it on thick” what a good man he was, nor to defame his character. Othello wanted them to think of him as a man who loved too much, however irrational it might have been. Many exceptional examples of reversal and recognition are shown throughout Othello. Constant use of recognitions and reversals to develop character, advance the plot, and get a reaction of pity and fear from the audience are clearly evident in Othello. Perhaps if Othello would have taken a m...

Self-Identity Of Willy Loman

...Willy Loman is, for Miller, the antithesis of the classic tragic hero. As his name implies, he is a `low man', an everyday man, whose dreams and expectations have been shattered by the capitalistic values of the society that he failed to see. Unlike the heroes of classical tragedy, he is not a man of stature or noble purpose but he commands our respect and pity because he pursues his dream with a passionate intensity that makes him unique and gives him a heroic quality. While Willy is flawed in ...

Religion in Modern Society

...With all of the trouble in our world today, its disconcerting to know that religion is a contributing factor. Even more so after we have been told of the attributed attainment, and the possibility of its bliss and sanctuary within our miniscule existence. All of our misguidings, misdirections and misinterpretations are being unraveled, and worsening throughout the course of time. This, and the subjective persuasion and manipulation we bestow upon ourselves will convey our impending death and des...

Analysis of John Nash's nobel prize speech

...John Nash goes on to say that his wife's love is the only reason he stood on a stage in Switzerland accepting the Nobel Prize. That she was the only reason he was alive; solely because of her love and devotion, her faith in his ability to overcome and her belief that something extraordinary was possible. The astonishing effect that love had on his mental health was in fact his "verifiable, empirical data". No other person had ever before lived normally with schizophrenia, yet Nash was able to ov...

Reflection Paper for Philosophy of Religion

...Alluding to the idea of the other that cannot be consumed by the I in Hegelian manner of the thesis and the anti-thesis having a compromise in the form of the synthesis, religions can neither be equalized by a common denominator nor taken separately and treated with bias. Hick, Plantinga, and Tillich tried nobly to create stable grounds by creating bases for beliefs by conceptualizing the whole idea of religions and beliefs. Yet with the contradictions to every argument presented, loose or dead ...

Nothing But the Truth

...The theme of distortion of the truth and people's willingness to disregard the truth to protect themselves is not only accomplished through the storyline, but also through Avi's unique style. Nothing but the Truth, which is a documentary novel, pulls together many different nonnarrative elements, such as memos, conversations, letters, diary,and phone conversations. Although these pieces are said to contain “facts,” it is apparent to the reader throughout the novel that there is much discrepa...

By the Waters of Babylon

...John, a priest and a son of a priest went against his predecessors and learned about the previous civilization and it's mistakes. This made him understand how to create a civilization that would last. It also makes him a better leader. In the end John thinks, "But they were men who built the city, not gods or demons. They were men. I remember the dead man's face. They were men who were here before us. We must build again." This is proof that the implication is wrong and that it creates restricti...

Salvation by Langston Hughes

...In the opening paragraph, Langston exhibits a calm and logical opinion towards being saved by Jesus. He does not display any fierce objections; nor does he exhibit any outbursts of excitement or anxious doubts. He seems to believe that Jesus will save him with the same cordial innovation as is later displayed when the other children are being saved. As the story progresses and Langston's anxiety prevails he wonders when or if Jesus will ever in fact save him at all. While Jesus is saving all of ...

Is Prostitution Deviant?

...A strength of the social-conflict paradigm in viewing conflict is that in order to change the pattern of prostitution or any negative matter of society we must look at what forms the problem in order to prevent it. However one viewpoint gives us a narrow solution for a vast number of problems and other issues besides social inopportunity, like morals, values and a persons character must also be addressed in ordered to wholly fix any problem. Though we live in a world that expresses moral relativ...

Atwood's short story "Bluebeard's Egg"

...This relates to Atwood's contemplating of the "creative process". Like in other poems by her, we see the birth of new concepts from the roots of our very own creation. This also compares to the ways in which our engagement with a text, the act of reading literature, corresponds to "reading" reality. Atwood's story suggests that in both instances, "guesswork" or "intuition" is as fundamental as close analysis. But whether our interpretation of the story is intuitive or analytical, the outcome is ...

Harmful Effects of Television

...Finally, people get obsessed with television because it becomes their hobby. For instance, some people love to watch TV and it becomes their first priority.

Children get obsessed with TV and they might get behind in their studies. For example, watching a late movie will result in sleeping late and being tired the next day. In addition...
