Importance of a Reader´s Interpretation of a Text - Roland Barthes’ essay titled ‘Death of the Author’ is a foundational text of contemporary reader-centred theory in which he argued that “it is language which speaks, not the author,” and that the multiplicity of a text’s “centres of culture” is focused on the reader (Barthes, 1977, pg. 143). Essentially, Barthes argued that attempts to recover or discover an author’s intended interpretation of a text are irrelevant and more so impossible to derive from the text alone; instead, the reader’s interpretation and the processes that lead to it are what matters from a critical, reader-centred perspective....   [tags: Film, Frozen]

Constitutional Interpretation of Checks and Balances - Constitutional Interpretation of Checks and Balances The problem of interpreting the Constitution and framer’s intent is a constantly permeating and troublesome question in the minds of Supreme Court Justices, judges, prominent politicians, and policy makers alike. It is a problem that has been pondered for years and years in the courtrooms and on paper with no real conclusion. One such essay arguing this dilemma is “How Not to Read the Constitution” by Laurence H. Tribe and Michael C. Dorf, who explore the questions “Is reading the text just a pretext for expressing the reader’s vision in the august, almost holy terms of constitutional law?” and “Is the Constitution simply a mirror in...   [tags: Papers] 1683 words

Modern Interpretation of "The Merchant Of Venice" Drama Challenge - Every year, each Secondary 2 class has to stage a modern interpretation of the Shakespeare play The Merchant of Venice, with each class given a particular scene to interpret.

Though our class is only halfway through the preparations of the interpretation, I feel that I have learnt a lot of invaluable knowledge about the play and the themes conveyed in that particular scene, as well as more about theatrical interpretations and the importance of the roles of the various involved parties....   [tags: theatre, Merchant Of Venice, shakespeare, moerniza] 690 words

Interpretation Alternatives of Shakespeare's The Tempest - Interpretation Alternatives of The Tempest      A production of The Tempest should emphasize the idealized methods in which Prospero uses magic to solve the problem of revenge which is so prevalent throughout his tragedies, perhaps the production might be a direct allegory for the magic of the theatre itself.   In this conception of the play, the scattering and bringing together of the characters in the script is significant in that theatre also could be said to bring people together and allow them to share in an experience of emotion, magic, and finally, of resolution....   [tags: Tempest essays]

Interpretation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet - Interpretation of Romeo and Juliet What would cause young lovers to mysteriously commit suicide so they can be together. Is it their parents who forbid them to see one another, or is it themselves.

A Kantian Interpretation of Demonstrative Reference - A Kantian Interpretation of Demonstrative Reference ABSTRACT: According to Kant, we refer to what is out there in the world by performing a demonstrative act, like pointing at an object with a finger. A Kantian mode of demonstrative reference is characterized by the existence of a real, 2-placed affective relation between an intuiting subject and the referent. Parsons suggests that Kantian intuition is both singular and immediate, and immediacy demands an object of intuition to be present, a condition clearly satisfied by objects within our immediate perceptual field....   [tags: Philosophy Philosophical Kant Essays] 3142 words

Hellenistic and Hellenic Interpretation of Popper - Hellenistic and Hellenic Interpretation of Popper Sir Karl Popper states in his treatise "Philosophy of Science: a Personal Report" asserts that "the criterion of the scientific status of a theory is its falsifiability, or refutability, or testability" (Popper 23). He claims that a 'good' scientific theory must meet a single requirement: its capability of being tested. In other words, a good theory predicts future observations, and the accuracy of the prediction supports or refutes it. If a theory can't be tested then it isn't scientific....   [tags: Scientific Theories Science Essays] 2385 words

Symbolism and Interpretation in Animal Farm - Symbolism and Interpretation in Animal Farm When Orwell published Animal Farm in 1945, a popular belief held that the Soviet Union was an honorable nation. Orwell hoped to write a novel that exposed the murderous truth of the Soviet System; he employed allegory to show a truth that remained unclear to many. As an allegory on early 20th Century Russia, ANIMAL FARM introduces its audience to a wide array of characters--each serving as a symbol. The table below provides a list of fictional characters, events, and items from the film ANIMAL FARM, and the real-life counterparts they appear to represent....   [tags: Animal Farm George Orwell Essays] 793 words

Instead of absorbing or passively receiving objective knowledge that is "out there," learners actively construct knowledge by integrating new information and experiences into what they have previously come to understand, revising and reinterpreting old knowledge in order to reconcile it with the new (Billett 1996).

Theories of Dream Content in The Interpretation of Dreams by Freud - I have chosen an original psychology classic based on Sigmund Freud. The title of my review is “The Interpretation of Dreams”. This book was written to find out why do we actually dream and what does it mean in our psychological lives. In Freud’s view, dream is viewed as wish fulfilment. It is known as the satisfaction of a desire through an involuntary process. Therefore it can occur in dreams or daydreams in the symptoms or neurosis or hallucination of psychosis. It requires interpretation to recognize this satisfaction....   [tags: manifest, latent, wish] 1441 words

More importantly, the paper shows how the emerging results of the lexicological searches guided my formation of a philosophical thesis about the axiom’s import for Aquinas’s existential metaphysics....   [tags: Technology Philosophy Essays]
