Critique of Research Design - ... Longitudinal design was used in this study to monitor the same participants over six months. A threat to the validity of this design can be drop out of participants.

Nietzsche's Critique of Religion - Nietzsche's critique of religion is largely based on his critique of Christianity. Nietzsche says that in modern Europe, people are atheistic, even though they don't realise it. People who say they are religious aren't really and those who say they have moved on haven't actually moved on. Certain people in society retain features of Christianity. For example, socialists still believe in equality in all people. Others still have pity for the poor and needy etc. Nietzsche dislikes religion especially Christianity because it encourages and promotes slave morality....   [tags: Nietzsche's Critique of Christianity] 1196 words

Finding the sublime in the beautiful is what I call philosophical beauty. I then consider some aspects of Aristotle's analysis of tragedy in the Poetics, specifically his identification of the key elements of tragedy as those involving the experience of fear and pity, which leads to a catharsis of these emotions....   [tags: Kant Third Critique Aristotle Poetics Essays] 3443 words

Culture of Critique - Americans have embraced debate since before we were a country. The idea that we would provide reasoned support for any position that we took is what made us different from the English king. Our love of debate came from the old country, and embedded itself in our culture as a defining value. Thus, it should not come as a surprise that the affinity for debate is still strong, and finds itself as a regular feature of the mainstream media. However, if Deborah Tannen of the New York Times is correct, our understanding of what it means to argue may be very different from what it once was; a “culture of critique” has developed within our media, and it relies on the exclusive opposition of two confl...   [tags: American Culture]

Critique of a Website - Critique of a Website Web sites are just like magazines, newspapers, brochures, menus, or even directions on how to make nitroglycerin from house-hold goods, in that they all have to be put together in such a manner that whoever is reading or browsing over it will be able to clearly distinguish this from that. In this sense, a critique of any particular web site will have justification, while carefully considering also that this is an altogether new medium of information exchange. Now, all of this talk of togetherness is actually a general reference to basic design principles, such as color coordination, if color is used, text size, font choice/ style, art integration, accessibility, and j...   [tags: Website Design Analysis Essays Papers]

Mash Up Critique - In my mash up I consider the notion of evidence, starting from the meaning: “ground for belief; proof ” (evidence, n.d.). I establish evidence as everything that is used to determine or demonstrate the truth. The statement “Photography is no longer evidence for anything”, leaves a lot to be determined. In order to explore this, I focused my efforts not on the topic of digital manipulation but on the manipulation of the subject and its intention to provoke response in its audience. My approach constructs a narrative of confusion in every day life situations by using complexity, the notion of evidence and its use as proof or truth....   [tags: Art Analysis ]

Qualitative Analysis Critique - Qualitative Research Critique There are many differences between quantitative and qualitative research.

Qualitative analysis can give understanding to the meaning of a specific characteristic, entity, or phenomenon within a context, instead of only measuring how much is present....   [tags: Self Development]

Freakanomics Book Critique - ... Freakanomics however is a unique blend of economics’ emotionless logic, curiosity, and psychology. Levitt and Dubner write that the simplest way to describe the thesis of Freakanomics is summed up in four words: People respond to incentives. The issue of Exploring the Hidden Side of Everything is that ‘Everything’ is a very broad topic for just one book. In reality Freakanomics finds the hidden side of 6 of Levitt’s random, unrelated questions concerning schoolteachers, sumo wrestlers, the KKK, real estate agents, drug dealers, abortion, crime rates, parenting myths, and the side effects of names; all of which contribute to validating his point that conventional wisdom is often incorrec...   [tags: questions, klu klux klan, sumo werestlers] 1027 words

A Brief History and Critique of Analytic Philosophy - A Brief History and Critique of Analytic Philosophy Although brief, analytic philosophy has done to philosophy what Copernicus did for science. At a time when philosophy seemed stagnant, and when much of the world turned to science for life’s big questions, a revolution needed to occur within philosophy to keep the practice relevant. For philosophy, this revolution came at the turn of the 20th century when British Idealism governed philosophic studies. Known today as analytic philosophy, this practice and its major contributors challenged the thinking of classical British empiricists and developed a new wave of philosophy focusing on logic and the structure of language....   [tags: copernicus, bertrand russell, symbolic logic]

Nancy Walker's Critique Feminist of Naturalist - Whether it be a person, technology, or environment, the question of how things persuade a character to behave always arises. In Nancy Walker's critique entitled [Feminist of Naturalist], Walker states that Edna's downward spiraling life is caused by her inability to free herself from her Creole culture. Although it is true that the novel appears to embrace this idea, there are a multitude of moments where Chopin allows Edna to appear as a character who makes decisions for herself. In doing this, Chopin effectively illustrates a flaw in Walkers theory on Creole culture and naturalism, and reveals Edna's awkward and uncomfortable feelings towards a culture said to immense her....   [tags: Literary Analysis] 978 words

The Role of the Holy Fool in the Context of Danish Cinema - ... Christianity has predominantly incorporated male figures as leaders and exemplars of faithfulness. The importance of gender and the roles associated with the traditional binary genders is the focus of many church doctrines and writings. The Bible is androcentric and patriarchal, meaning it is both male-centered, and presents a social structure where men dominate everything and every person, including women (Cottrell 1994: 12). It is therefore unsurprising that holy male fools and the holy female fools receive different treatments when portrayed in both literature and cinema because the most ideal relationship a person has with God differs according to their gender....   [tags: critique of society] 1571 words
