This logic questions the ability of a person to ascertain what “beauty” is, what contains the quality known as “beauty”, and the levels of beauty and how they can be measured and compared.

A Brief Biography of Ludwig Prandtl - Fluid Dynamics is a subject that is well over 2,000 years old. Archimedes, da Vinci, Galileo and Newton are all classical forerunners of modern fluid dynamics researchers such as Bernoulli and Euler (Anderson 42).

The Biographical Approach to History: Strengths and Weaknesses in the Context of Bismarck’s Germany - ... When discussing Germany’s economic foreign policy Waller briefly mentions French protectionism, but fails to mention the underlying cause for widespread European protectionism as a whole at this time. However, if a more global approach, rather than a biographical one, is taken then it is much easier to see that Germany’s turn to protectionism is by no means unique. In fact, Eric Hobsbawm states that, “Starting with Germany and Italy (textiles) in the late 1870s, protective tariffs became a permanent part of the international economic scene,” and he furthers this point with, “Of all the major industrial countries only Britain held fast to unrestricted free trade, in spite of powerful occa...   [tags: european politics, first world war, germany]
