Jealousy in Cantor's Dilemma - Jealousy in Cantor's Dilemma The beast hides in the shadows. Its presence is all around us; its existence denied by all. It moves stealthily from one body to the next, peering with its infinite, green eyes into the deepest thoughts of all, a merciless predator seeking out those who least expect its attack. It strikes without a sound, paralyzing its prey. The monster's bite drives its victims into behaving rashly. It injects a poison strong enough to cause one to distrust one's best-friend....   [tags: Cantor's Dilemma Essays] 712 words

Essay on Fame in Djerassi’s Cantor's Dilemma - Dreams of Fame in Djerassi’s Cantor's Dilemma       Opportunistic scientists, the most hypocritical deviants of the modern age, revolve around the scientific method, or at least they used to. The scientific method once involved formulating a hypothesis from a problem posed, experimenting, and forming a conclusion that best explained the data collected. Yet today, those who are willing to critique the work of their peers are themselves performing the scientific method out of sequence. I propose that scientists, or the "treasure hunters" of that field, are no longer interested in permanent solutions, achieved through proper use of the scientific method, and rather are more interested in so...   [tags: Cantor's Dilemma Essays]

The Dilemma of Censorship - The Dilemma of Censorship The issue of censorship always provides an interesting debate. There are many intelligent and very valid arguments for and against the issue.

The Madisonian Dilemma Discusses Government Authority - ... Creating a representative form of government was a start, but Madison and other framers of the Constitution recognized that further safeguards were needed to prevent tyranny and oppression. The solution was the fragmentation of power into three separate branches of government.
