A Humean Critique of Descartes - A Humean Critique of Descartes Montreal has big potholes. Lots of them. If one is to truly understand the philosophy of Hume and Descartes, one must understand what they would do with crummy roads as civil engineers in Montreal. Hume would probably repave the roads based on the success of past designs and the results of empirical data. Descartes, on the other hand, would probably leave nothing unscathed after attacking the problem with reason, scrapping the existing roadmap and re-building roads with new foundations and new directions....   [tags: Descartes Critique Philosophy Philosopher Essays]

Candide: A Critique - Let me start off by saying that I thoroughly enjoy satires; it is the genre I appreciate most for its employment of wit and militant irony. Upon delving into Candide by Voltaire I was lured in by its display of ridiculously brutal situations that dramatized the many evils of human experience. I think Voltaire wonderfully crafted this particular satire through his conglomeration of themes and symbolisms.

Finding the sublime in the beautiful is what I call philosophical beauty.

Critique of Plato - ... We do this because we assume one Form is common to them all. Thus, whenever we give the same name to a plurality of things, it is legitimate to assume that we are naming a Form. Basically, the names we give to visible things don’t actually name the things, but rather a Form. (Melchert 125) Before we move on, it is important to stress that Plato’s Forms cannot be observed through the senses. They exist solely in the mind or intellect. According to Plato, we cannot assume that Forms are not real just because our senses cannot conceive of them, because to do so would be a bias toward the senses....   [tags: Philosophy, Greek] 2049 words

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.

The Critique of Conceiving Logic as a Propadeutic - The Critique of Conceiving Logic as a Propadeutic Introduction: Does logic assume an ontology. What is the relationship between logic and ontology. In contemporary philosophy common answers have been ‘No’ to the first and ‘None’ to the second question. This is because the principles of logic, to borrow Kantian terminology, are understood as regulative rather than constitutive of objects. For a principle to be regulative means that it provides us with a methodology that belongs somehow to the nature of our thinking, but not to that of the world, as constitutive principles do.[i] In this way, a regulative conception of logic represents logic as an “instrument” of reason that takes for granted a formal set of rules, rules which have no bearing on “reality” and that are “invented” as tools to guide our thought.[ii] It is no curiosity that as a result most contemporary logic text-books present logic as formal or informal system of rules meant to regulate our thinking....   [tags: Logic Ontology Philosophy Essays]

Rousseau's Critique of Moliere - In Rousseau’s critique of Moliere, he sees Moliere as being a perfect author. Moliere incorporates betrayal and distortion to stir the emotions and gain our interest, as well as sympathy. Rousseau feels that Moliere doesn’t help society, instead, he harms it. The reason is because Moliere is bringing down the value of society by using politics and comedy together. People are starting to see their flaws as being acceptable due to the content they see in Moliere’s work. If the first thing that one learns about Rousseau is that he was a supporter of community, the second is almost always that that he was moralistically opposed to theater as destructive of community morals....   [tags: essays research papers] 655 words

Nietzsche's Critique of Past Philosophers - Nietzsche's Critique of Past Philosophers The desire of most philosophers, Nietzsche says, is to find truth. Nietzsche doesn't see why this is. In the second aphorism, he asks why don't we look for untruth. He believes that beliefs are more important than finding truth because, for him, there is no real truth. Philosophers state a truth or known fact as if it were the ultimate knowledge, but Nietzsche says that really they are giving their opinions about things. Philosophers don't have knowledge - just beliefs....   [tags: Papers] 423 words

Critique of Parallel Lives - Critique of Parallel Lives I viewed Parallel Lives on April 12th 2002 in the Charles Johnson Theatre. Before the show even started I was ready for it to end.

Critique of The Winter's Tale - Critique of The Winter's Tale The Winter's Tale is a perfect tragicomedy. Set in an imaginary world where Bohemia has a seacoast, and where ancient Greek oracles coexist with Renaissance sculptors, it offers three acts of unremitting tragedy, followed by two acts of restorative comedy. In between, sixteen years pass hastily, a lapse which many critics have taken as a structural flaw, but which actually only serves to highlight the disparity of theme, setting, and action between the two halves of the play....   [tags: Papers] 482 words

A Critique of Compulsory Schooling - “The knowledge of the world is to only to be acquired in the world, and not in a closet.” Thus said Lord Chesterfield, who understood the fact that locking children away is not the best way to teach them. It is a painful reality that students are not being educated, but rather simply being schooled, and most people who understand street slang know that “to be schooled” is to be beaten down. This terminology is not a coincidence. Compulsory schooling is eliminating society of its most vibrant sources of variety, and teaching children that no work is worth finishing, and that they must depend on someone else’s word in order to survive....   [tags: Education] 625 words

A Critique of The Taming of the Shrew - A Critique of The Taming of the Shrew       The Taming of the Shrew is one of the earliest comedies written by William Shakespeare.  Some scholars believe it may have been his first work written for the stage as well as his first comedy (Shakespearean 310).    The earliest record of it being performed on stage is in 1593 or 1594.  It is thought by many to be one of Shakespeare's most immature plays (Cyclopedia 1106).         In The Taming of the Shrew, Petruchio was the only suitor willing to court Kate, the more undesirable of Baptista's  two daughters.  Kate was never described as unattractive (Elizabeth Taylor played her role in one film of the production), but was known for her shrewish behavior around all of Padua....   [tags: Taming Shrew Essays]

Analytical Critique of The Godfather - Analytical Critique of The Godfather      I believe the reason that, 'The Godfather', is such a great film is because it lets audiences decide whether they like the characters or not. Too many movies made about organized crime begin with some seemingly random act of violence. 'The Godfather', however, lets it be known from the start to judge the characters in the film based on what type of person they are instead of the criminal activities they may engage in.      The film begins with a wedding, and this setting sets the stage for the basic theme of the movie, which is family....   [tags: Movie Film Review Godfather Essays] 928 words
