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]

René Descartes and Thomas Hobbes : A Dialogue - René Descartes and Thomas Hobbes: A Dialogue As one embarks on the incredible journey through Descartes’ meditations, a plethora of doubts, criticisms and seemingly fundamental problems arise and block one’s progress. No doubt, many of these can be attributed to the fact that we of the twenty-first century come more than three and a half centuries after the brilliant mind of Descartes (or shall we say, ‘that was Descartes’) spawned the immense framework of philosophy that is contained within The Meditations....   [tags: Politics Philosophy Sociology]

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

The Sophist - The Sophist, written by Plato in 360 B.C.E. attempts to search for definitions through deep philosophical searching. The persons of dialogue in this piece are Theodorus, Theaetetus, Socrates (who mainly serves as a silent authority), and an Eleatic Stranger, who leads the majority of the dialogue. As the dialogue commences, Socrates asks the stranger what is thought of sophists, statesman, and philosophers in his home country of Italy. However, Socrates does not simply ask the Stranger to define the three, he instead asks him how the three types of men are regarded in his country- under one, two, or three names....   [tags: Philosophy] 1617 words

Music, Dialogue, and Mise-en-scène in the Dance of Death - Music, Dialogue, and Mise-en-scène in the Dance of Death In all cinematic works the mise-en-scène is one of the most influential aspects of the film’s meaning. 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. These facts are supported by the “Dance of Death” scene of the narrative Bamboozled by Spike Lee....   [tags: Movie Analysis, Film Analysis, Cinematography] 1653 words

Ernest Hemingway - "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place" was published by Scribner's Magazine in March of 1933, but it was not until 1956 that an apparent inconsistency in the waiters' dialogue was brought to Hemingway's attention. Hemingway's thirteen word reply to Judson Jerome, an Assistant Professor of English at Antioch College, said that he had read the story again and it still made perfect sense to him. Despite this letter, Scribner's republished "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place" in 1965 with a slight change in the waiters' dialogue that they argued would fix the apparent anomaly....   [tags: essays research papers] 1657 words

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 re...   [tags: Aristotle Friendship Philosophy Essays]

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

Important Motifs in Sound and Editing - Sound and editing are both very crucial concepts in film. In Tom Tykwer's Run Lola Run (1998), the way the narrative structure is set up can make the differentiation of diegetic and non-diegetic sound difficult for the viewer. The relationship between sound and the narrative structure, however, also makes the viewer more aware of the film's artificiality. In King Hu's Come Drink With Me (1966), we see how the major motifs of editing emphasize the unrealistic and fantasy qualities of the characters....   [tags: Analysis, Sounds, Editing] 1785 words

Yet, the communism was not the only concern of Americans. In the early 1980s, this capitalist power already started sensing an overcoming threat of the international terrorism, which led to the emergence of a new group of enemies, namely, the rogue states. These countries are seen as a danger to the new unipolar world.
