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]

Effective Use of Dialogue in The Sacrifice of Isaac - Effective Use of Dialogue in The Sacrifice of Isaac        In the Brome version of The Sacrifice of Isaac, the suspense created by the emotionally charged dialogue is likely what kept the audience's attention. While it is incredibly likely that the audience knew the entire story, the emotional flavor of the dialogue, such as Abraham's innocent expressions of his love of and thankfulness for Isaac at the beginning of the play, is bound to evoke a certain concern for the characters which dims the audience's foreknowledge of the tale's happy ending....   [tags: Sacrifice of Isaac Essays]

As an empiricist and a skeptic, he calls to “let us become thoroughly sensible of the weakness, blindness, and narrow limits of human reason.” (131) Philo believes that because humans have been historically ignorant about science and the universe, that humanity especially has no right to speculate about theology. He continues by calling out the “contradictions which adhere to the very ideas of matter, cause and effect, extension, space, time, motion; and in a word, quantity of all kinds, the object of the only science that can fairly pretend to any certainty or evidence....   [tags: skepticism, philosophy]

Women and Interfaith Dialogue - Women and Interfaith Dialogue The word dialogue implies a personal encounter, a meeting face to face, where the aim is not to change the other partner in the dialogue, but to risk being changed through the process. For women, the main point of dialogue is to build relationships or to conserve them. "Dialogue among women are more life-oriented; they come out of actual experiences, and they are more clearly oriented to bringing about concrete changes in perception and practice at the very basic level of the lives of people."

Some of the themes best shown in the dialogue of the characters are Heller's hatred of war, and his perceived idiocy in military and in bureaucracy.

An Analysis of Thucydides' Views on the Melian Dialogue - An Analysis of Thucydides' Views on the Melian Dialogue The Melian Dialogue is a debate between Melian and Athenian representatives concerning the sovereignty of Melos. The debate did not really occur-the arguments given by each side were of Thucydides own creation. Thus it is reasonable to assume that we can tease out Thucydides' own beliefs. In this paper, I will first extract Thucydides views from the Melian Dialogue and then analyze whether or not these views are well founded. Thucydides believed that the Athenians had the stronger argument....   [tags: Ancient History Thucydides Melos Essays] 1591 words

Mise-en-scène is important because it shows how the cinematic space is organized and where the camera is in respect to the characters and the surrounding environment. Although the mise-en-scène is imperative by itself, the effect of the music and dialogue that accompany the scene in a film adds to its meaning.
