Dialogue - The Locket - Dialogue - The Locket At midnight, Paul went outside and sat on the bench on the old, plank porch. Despite bundling himself in a heavy blanket, he shivered in the cold. The eastern sky before him was dotted with stars, scintillating above the quiet spread of desert. A few lonely clouds were drifting by. Patricia timidly opened the door; hesitant to disrupt Paul’s solitude. As he glanced up at Patricia, she could see the melancholy in his eyes. “What you said today at the funeral was beautiful,” she murmured....   [tags: Dialogue Conversation Essays] 1769 words

Euthyphro Dialogue - In the dialogue Euthyphro (Cahn and Markie), Plato presents an argument against the divine command meta-ethical theory. While the argument is presented against the predominantly pantheistic Greek religions, the argument can be easily applied to the monotheistic Abrahamic religions. The dialogue starts off with the two main characters: Euthyphro and Socrates. Socrates has been indicted for corrupting the youth of Athens and Euthyphro is indicting his father for murdering a day-labourer who killed one of his servants through neglect....   [tags: Philosophy]

Plato's Dialogue - ... Additionally, speaking of wealth, Cephalus admits that it has an effective element in one’s self control, protecting it from its natural temptation to earn money illegally. Still, the rich bad man will never have peace with himself. The conversation drifts to the subject of Justice. From the words of Cephalus, the first definition of justice appears– which is also the first one that comes to most people’s minds that ‘justice is repaying debts and telling the truth’. Socrates in turn, points his attention to a flaw with the example of retuning a weapon back to a friend who gone mad....   [tags: Philosophy ]

Controversies surrounding the subject of racism are endless, such as: who is racist, the causes of racism, solutions for racism, and if racism still affects society. Paul L. Wachtel's essay "Talking About Racism: How Our Dialogue Gets Short-Circuited" claims that racial problems are caused by whites not being willing to hear and resolve concerns of blacks.

The Ideal of Objectivity in Political Dialogue - The Ideal of Objectivity in Political Dialogue ABSTRACT: If political dialogue is to identify and redress existing forms of injustice, participants in the dialogue must be able to appeal to the concept of objectivity in order to exchange claims, attitudes, and background beliefs which distort or conceal various forms of injustice. The conceptions of objectivity traditionally employed in liberal democratic political philosophy are not well-suited to play this role because they are insufficiently sensitive to the social and ideological pluralism of modern societies....   [tags: Politics Philosophy Philosophical Essays]

Bob isn't my boss, he's just the guy who sits in the next cubicle. And it's not like he would have said anything, or even thought anything. It was just one of those days when I felt like leaving without anybody noticing.         I smoked a whole cigarette walking from the office to the shuttle stop two blocks away. I walk slowly now, even when I feel like I'm rushing....   [tags: Dialogue Essays] 2631 words

Critical Reflection on Dialogues - ... In dialogue 2, I had an opportunity to communicate with my patient’s wife. Prior to making decision on ambulation, the patient and his wife had opposite opinions from different perspectives. Parse (1981) stated that it was impossible for two persons had precisely same feelings and experiences in a family. Based on Parse’s theory, nurses need to bear witness to the interaction between patients and their families rather than disturbing the rhythms and patterns of the families (Cody, 2000). However, I did not follow the rhythm of my patient’s family after I noticed the conflict between my patient and his wife....   [tags: Nursing ]

Plato's Dialogues As Educational Models - Dialogue, Dialectic, and Maieutic: Plato's Dialogues As Educational Models ABSTRACT: Plato’s Socrates exemplies the progress of the dialectical method of inquiry. Such a method is capable of actualizing an interlocutor’s latent potential for philosophizing dialectically. The dianoetic practice of Plato’s Socrates is a mixture of dialectical assertions and questions arising out of his ethical concern for the interlocutor. The Dialogues act as educational models exhibiting how one inquires and learns as well as how one must teach in order that others learn to be participants in (or practitioners of) the dialectic....   [tags: Philosophy Research Papers]

The Educational Value of Plato's Early Socratic Dialogues - The Educational Value of Plato's Early Socratic Dialogues ABSTRACT: When contemplating the origins of philosophical paideia one is tempted to think of Socrates, perhaps because we feel that Socrates has been a philosophical educator to us all. But it is Plato and his literary genius that we have to thank as his dialogues preserve not just Socratic philosophy, but also the Socratic educational experience. Educators would do well to better understand Plato's pedagogical objectives in the Socratic dialogues so that we may appreciate and utilize them in our own educational endeavors, and so that we may adapt the Socratic experience to new interactive educational technologies....   [tags: Philosophy Philosophical Essays] 2861 words

An Analysis of Hume's Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion - An Analysis of Hume's Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion ABSTRACT: Hume's Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion (1779) may be read in the way Cleanthes (and Philo as well) reads Nature, as analogous to human artifice and contrivance. The Dialogues and Nature then are both texts, with an intelligent author or Author, and analogies may be started from these five facts of Hume's text: the independence of Hume's characters; the non-straightforwardness of the characters' discourse; the way the characters interact and live; the entanglements of Pamphilus as an internal author; and the ways in which a reader is also involved in making a dialogue....   [tags: Philosophy]

Response to George Berkeley’s Three Dialogues between Hylas and Philonous - A Response to George Berkeley’s Three Dialogues between Hylas and Philonous The following essay is a response to George Berkeley’s Dialogues between Hylas and Philonous, in which he argues that the Cartesian notion of substance is incoherent, that the word "matter" as Descartes uses it, does not mean anything. This essay is also about words as memories, and about the two fictional Marcels, young and old. Hylas is a Cartesian thinker, and Philonous is Berkeley’s voice of reason.

The Dramatic Setting of the Gorgias - The Dramatic Setting of the Gorgias ABSTRACT: I analyse the dramatic setting of the Gorgias by contrasting it with that of the Protagoras. The two dialogues are closely related. In the Gorgias Socrates states that the rhetorician and the sophist are basically indistinguishable in everyday life. In both the Protagoras and the Gorgias, his confrontation with his interlocutors is metaphorically related to a descent to Hades. However, while the events in the Protagoras are narrated by Socrates himself, the Gorgias has readers face the unfolding events without mediation....   [tags: Gorgias] 3950 words

Martin Buber’s Dialogic Communication - Martin Buber’s Dialogic Communication Dialogue is more than talking. It is not the straightforwardness of talking to or at, rather it is communicating with or between. It is "a relation between persons that is characterized in more or less degree by the element of inclusion" (Buber, 97). Inclusiveness is an acknowledgment of the other person, an event experienced between two persons, mutual respect for both views and a willingness to listen to the views of the other. These elements are the heart of dialogical relations....   [tags: Essays Papers] 2288 words
