Critique of Edward Snowden's Actions Based on Kant and Aristotle Philosophy - Two of the greatest philosophers, Immanuel Kant and Aristotle, don’t agree with the actions taken by the whistleblower Edward Snowden leaking the confidential information to the United State Citizens.

Aristotle, based of his philosophy, would have constructed an argument saying that Snowden’s actions were that of a good person but not of a follower of the polis....   [tags: Edward Snowden, Computer Specialist]

Giants In The Earth by Ole Edvart Rølvaag - Giants In The Earth by Ole Edvart Rølvaag I think this book is a very interesting story. I have never read a western before much less one about foreigners. To begin with, I thought Per Hansa was a man of action and a natural pioneer. Throughout the story he showed optimism and great courage in the face of hardship. To me he seems very intelligent, strong, and a natural leader in his community and throughout the story he seemed to succeed at almost everything he did. When it comes to his wife, Beret, it's a different story; unlike her husband she cannot endure life on the prairie....   [tags: Giants Earth Analysis] 1243 words

Allegory in Edward Albee's The American Dream - Allegory in Edward Albee's The American Dream Our understanding of Edward Albee's achievement in The American Dream (1960) has come a long way since 1961 when Martin Esslin hailed it as a "brilliant first example of an American contribution to the Theatre of the Absurd"1 and 1966 when Nicholas Canaday, Jr. labeled it America's "best example of what has come to be known as 'the theatre of the absurd.'"2 The shrewdest assessment of absurdism in Albee is by Brian Way, who shows convincingly that, although Albee has successfully mastered the techniques of theatrical absurdism, he has nevertheless shied away from embracing the metaphysics that the style implies.3 That is, Albee knows that Thea...   [tags: Edward Albee American Dream Essays]

The Ramist Logic of Edward Taylor's Upon a Spider Catching a Fly - The Ramist Logic of Edward Taylor's Upon a Spider Catching a Fly Like other Puritanical writers of his generation, Edward Taylor looked to nature and utilized it as an example of a belief system that he had already deemed factual. The use Ramist logic here may seem irrational to many. The very essence of logic commands that we must first look toward nature and then draw conclusions from it. In his work, "Upon a Spider Catching a Fly", Taylor applies his doctrine in advance by using the interaction between an arachnid and a certain contrasting insect as an example of the Calvinist theory of predestination; the belief that one's fate cannot be influenced by one's works or earthly deeds....   [tags: Edward Taylor Upon Spider Catching Fly] 923 words
