American Empire - Michael Cox’s thesis as outlined in “Empire by Denial. Debating US Power”, is chiefly that: the United States of America is an empire, and that current beliefs to the contrary are the result of denialism due to negative connotations associated with the concept of empire, not due to a lack of suitability of that term to describe the current state of American foreign policy. The first issue which Cox raises is that of a lack of understanding of and study into the concept of empire by current research in the field of international relations (Cox 2004, p230)....   [tags: Article Analysis ] 937 words

The Most Famous Person Nobody Knows - The oscillating critical view of Walker, the periods of silence that interrupted the course of her literary production, the important social and literary movements that coincided with each of her publications, and the continuous change of life and literature during her lifetime necessitates a more inclusive and non-conventional approach of Walker’s work. Maryemma Graham argues that “Walker challenged both new critical and conventional readings; at the same time she offers penetrating intellectual critiques.” This very fact makes it difficult to approach Walker’s work using a specific critical framework....   [tags: Literary Analysis ]

Obama not only did this with the body of the speech, but throughout the entire conversation. An example of where this occurred is the thesis. A thesis in a speech may have the same elements as a paper, but contain a very apparent tell. The giveaway is the stating what the goal is of the speech.

However, the arguments of TDE lose their arbitrariness when placed in context of Quine’s beliefs about language and the steps to acquire it in our early years, which he summarizes in “The Nature of Natural Knowledge” (henceforth, NNK). According to NNK, we learn to establish links between sense data and statements when we learn our first language. Therefore, the process of establishing the truth of a statement from the sense data is determined by the process by which we acquire language, specifically, when we progress from stating observations to more general statements: “The paths of language learning, which lead from observation sentences to theoretical sentences, are the only connection there is between observation and theory” (NNK, p....   [tags: Language]

Reviving Psychophysical Supervenience - Reviving Psychophysical Supervenience ABSTRACT: Many philosophers have lost their enthusiasm for the concept of supervenience in the philosophy of mind. This is largely due to the fact that, as Jaegwon Kim has shown, familiar versions of supervenience describe relations of mere property covariation without capturing the idea of dependence. Since the dependence of the mental on the physical is a necessary requirement for even the weakest version of physicalism, it would seem that existing forms of supervenience cannot achieve that for which they were designed....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Philosophy Papers]

Marx argues that this illusion is controlled by those who are in power and is used to control those who are not in power. Althusser gives the example of the Priests being in line with the government. Similarly, Feuerbach, and restated by Marx, argues this illusion is caused by the material alienation of one’s conditions since the conditions are, themselves, alienating (111)....   [tags: Ideological State Apparatus, God] 1000 words

Robert Elliot's Faking Nature - Robert Elliot's "Faking Nature" ABSTRACT: Robert Elliot's "Faking Nature," (1) represents one of the strongest philosophical rejections of the ground of restoration ecology ever offered. Here, and in a succession of papers defending the original essay, Elliot argued that ecological restoration was akin to art forgery. Just as a copied art work could not reproduce the value of the original, restored nature could not reproduce the value of nature. I reject Elliot's art forgery analogy, and argue that his paper provides grounds for distinguishing between two forms of restoration that must be given separate normative consideration: (1) malicious restorations, those undertaken as a means of justifying harm to nature, and (2) benevolent restorations, or, those which are akin to art restorations and which cannot serve as justifications for the conditions which would warrant their engagement....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Faking Elliot Essays]

What is Beauty - The ideal of what beauty really is changes in our society from time to time. Everyone has their own opinion of what is beautiful. However the opinion that people mostly tend and heed to is that of the prominent and influential characters in today’s society. Those who claim to know what true beauty is and impel humanity to do and be what they want, as if people were their puppets. Television, magazines, and advertisements play an immense role in this. Playing with emotions and ridiculing those ‘not beautiful’ by pointing out the ideal facial structures or body types that one must have in order to be beautiful....   [tags: Beauty, definition, argumentative, persuasive]

In her thesis statement, Statsky states, “When overzealous parents and coaches impose adult standards on children's sports, the result can be activities that are neither satisfying nor beneficial to children” (627)....   [tags: sports]

Stages of Socioeconomic Development in Marxism - Karl Marx was a social and political philosopher best known for his critique of capitalism.

Text Clustering - The idea of text clustering long preceded the computer age: “Clustering is one of the most primitive mental activities of humans, used to handle the huge amount of information they receive every day” (Theodoridis and Koutroubas, 2003: 398).

Plato’s Tripartite Theory - ... This, in turn, controls the body’s actions. According the theory of Dualism, consciousness (or the mind) can exist autonomously of physical reality (or the brain). If this is true than one must be able to explain how physical memories and experiences are formed in regards to their conscious state. Thus, Dualism must explain how consciousness affects one’s physical reality. A main objection to the dualistic interaction theory is the absence of a clear explanation of how the physical and nonphysical are able to interact with one another....   [tags: Psychology ]

His essay is naturally of a more literary bent than Phillips’s, and, because he was a black man writing about the experiences of black Americans including his own, decidedly more personal.

Since the main topic of the book is the murders that Gary Gilmore committed and the controversy of his sentence, it was difficult to choose the exact thesis. I believe I came pretty close with the one that I have chosen. I believe that Norman Mailer's thesis in The Executioner's Song (1979) is: The controversy over capital punishment. One reason I believe that this is the thesis is because Gary Gilmore says, "Nicole my inclination is to let them execute me."
