Warriors Don't Cry - Socrates seems to exist on both sides of educational theory: conservative and progressive. On one hand, he appears to be a conservative, leaning toward idealist and pragmatist viewpoints. The most noticeable example of this is that Socrates maintains that “true wisdom” exists and is possessed, in fact, by the gods. This suggests that Socrates believed, like Idealists, that reality is spiritual in nature. A teacher, then, must hold students to very high and rigorous standards considering the sacred nature of the wisdom they are teaching....   [tags: Philosophy] 1089 words

Liebelei - Liebelei Arthur Schnitzler's 1895 play `Liebelei' provoked mass controversy within the Viennese upper class upon its premier in the `Burgtheater', as did many of his plays. This reaction could in part be explained by Schnitzler's "frank description of sexuality"¹ and his crudely realistic portrayal of Viennese society at that time through his application of very common personalities for his characters. In this essay, I intend to demonstrate the insight which Schnitzler gives the reader through the characters of `Liebelei', into Viennese society at the turn of the century....   [tags: European Literature] 1100 words

The Importance of Dialogue to Help Resolve Racism - Racism has become a taboo subject. The word racism is often viewed as a powerfully loaded word as if it were a cuss word. 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. He does bring up a valid point about dialogue being important in order to find a solution to racial strife....   [tags: racism, discrimination, prejudice]

Novels written before the 20th century, such as Moll Flanders and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, dealt with external conflict, a conflict the reader could visualize in an action. Along with other writers of Bohemian Paris, Ernest Hemingway moved away from this process and began using outward actions as symbols for the inner conflict dwelling inside the protagonist....   [tags: End Something] 1202 words

In accordance with Aristotle, plot is the most crucial to building a successful story and should be examined first.

In Search of Virtue in Honors - In Search of Virtue in Honors Of the three forms of friendship discussed by Aristotle—the useful, the pleasant, and the good—the ideal seminar most resembles the perfectly good friendship between “good men who are alike in excellence or virtue” (Aristotle 1156b). A seminar, the Swarthmore website reads, unites faculty with “small groups of dedicated and accomplished students” committed to “independent learning” and “dialogue with peers, teachers, and examiners.” In light of Aristotelian and neo-Aristotelian thought on friendship, virtue and practical wisdom, this discussion will first examine how an ideal seminar promotes student virtues and then proceed to evaluate an e-mail I wrote in response to an imperfect seminar....   [tags: Aristotle Friendship Philosophy Essays]

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 ]

Meno - There is not a great deal of context that is crucial to understanding the essential themes of the Meno, largely because the dialogue sits nearly at the beginning of western philosophy. Socrates and Plato are working not so much in the context of previous philosophies as in the context of the lack of them. Further, this is very probably one of Plato's earliest surviving dialogues, set in about 402 BCE (by extension, we might presume that it represents Socrates at a relatively early stage in his own thought)....   [tags: essays research papers] 1752 words

Use of Dramatic Techniques in Cartwright's Road and Kane's Blasted - Use of Dramatic Techniques in Cartwright's Road and Kane's Blasted      In this essay I shall concentrate on the plays 'Road' by Jim Cartwright and 'Blasted' by Sarah Kane with specific reference to use of language and structure of dialogue as examples of dramatic techniques.   My explanation of dramatic techniques is perhaps akin to Brecht's opinion regarding this theme:   '...The strong centralisation of the story, a momentum that draws the separate parts into a common relationship.  A particular passion of utterance, a certain emphasis on the class of forces are hallmarks of the dramatic.' (Brecht:p70)   Here we can perhaps see the way in which Brecht explains the aim of techniques such as use of language and structure of dialogue.  They in essence are attempting to draw together a common theme.  Perhaps in 'Road' language and dialogue is attempting to prove a sense of futility in individuals' lives, whereas in 'Blasted' the theme could be the atrocities of war are on both a personal and national level....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Roger Williams' A Key Into the Language of America - Roger Williams' A Key Into the Language of America During American colonial times, the native peoples of the new world clashed often with the English settlers who encroached upon their lifestyle. Many horror stories and clichés arose about the natives from the settlers. As one might read in Mary Rowlandson’s Narrative, often these disputes would turn to violence. To maintain the process of the extermination of the natives alongside Christian moral beliefs, one of the main tenets of colonial life was the belief that the natives were “savages”; that they were morally and mentally inferior to the English that settled there....   [tags: Roger Williams Savages Language America Essays] 2167 words
