America’s Insatiable Appetite for Cocaine - America’s Insatiable Appetite for Cocaine Where does Coca-Cola get its name. Why was it created. In 1886, the Georgia pharmacist, John Pemberton, designed Coca-Cola as a headache remedy and a stimulant. The original beverage contained cocaine and was used both as an intoxicating beverage and a medically useful tonic. The effects of the drink helped make it popular. Only in the early twentieth century was the drug eliminated from the Coca-Cola recipe and replaced with increased amounts of caffeine.[1]  Cocaine has a long history which also involves the once condoned use for medicinal purposes in the 1890's to being one of the most widespread abused drug today....   [tags: Exploratory Essays Research Papers]

Iago, Man’s Animal Appetites, and the Great Chain of Being in Shakespeare’s Othello - In Shakespeare’s Othello he is the grand architect, the puppeteer even, who manipulates the players and the action— but above all he is one of fiction’s favorite and most perplexing sinners: Iago. In a script we are given essentially nothing but words, but words can be a very revealing judge of character. Thus through Iago’s language, which is ripe with profanity, sensuality and above all animal imagery, Shakespeare has left us clues about the nature of the enigma that is one of his most striking villains....   [tags: Shakespeare, Othello, ] 1370 words

Plato's Happiest Way of Life - Plato's Happiest Way of Life A just life in a just society would be the happiest possible way to live for Plato. Justice is defined as a balanced and well-integrated specialization of functions both within the scope of society and the individual. The just society classifies its members on the basis of individual differences in intellectual and physical abilities and is therefore warranted. The way to achieve a happy life is only half satisfied with the presence of a just society. Other than living in a just society, the harmony between the parts within an individual's mind or soul is as important....   [tags: Papers] 777 words

Misery in The Great Gatsby's American Dream - "No— Gatsby turned out all right in the end. It is what preyed on Gatsby, what foul dust floated in the wake of his dreams that temporarily closed out my interest in the abortive sorrows and short-winded elations of men." When F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote these words in The Great Gatsby in 1925, he perfectly described the human struggle of the time. This was, by no means, accidental--for Fitzgerald wrote meticulously and very rarely did he leave a line unrevised. No— Fitzgerald knew what he was doing; he was, in two sentences, criticizing American society like no one else had....   [tags: The Great Gatsby] 2026 words

What is the Meaning of Freedom? - Freedom is often spoken of in what can be referred to as a loose sense of the word. One country has more freedom than another; a twenty-one year old has more freedom than a fifteen year old. What exactly does this word mean. For different people it may mean different things, but there has to be an equilibrium that can be reached in order to determine the meaning of freedom itself. In one form, freedom can mean that a person has "exemption from an obligation."* If only the root (free) is looked at, it can be interpreted that one is "not under the control or power of another."* However often the latter definition is used, it is also disagreed with, and for good reason: there is always a ruler, although the ruler may not necessarily be in the form of a person or group of persons....   [tags: What Does Freedom Mean?] 373 words

The idea of the soul's three parts and the soul being ruled by a dominant part is used as the basis for identifying justice and virtue.

Justice According To Plato - Society is constantly searching for the true concept of justice. Rather, in theory society is constantly searching for the true concept of justice. In reality justice is often times simply a word applied to broken concepts that those in power use to more effectively control those they are in charge of. This word is perhaps one of the most ill used in any language partially because humanity has not yet fully grasped what justice really means on a universal level.

Perversion - Dermott O'Flanagan Sexual Ethics Paper The issues of sexual ethics in relation to morality and perversion have been addressed in depth by each of the gentleman at this table. Sexual activity as described by Solomon and Nagle is comprised of a moral standard and ‘naturalness’ aspect. So, in claiming an act is perverted we must first examine it through a moral framework and understand how this interacts with the ‘naturalness’ of a particular act. Solomon makes the distinction as follows “Perversion is an insidious concept…To describe an activity as perverse is not yet a full blown moral condemnation, for it need not entail that one ought not to indulge in such activities.” Along with the examination of the nature of an act, there must be clear justification as to why sexual acts deserve special separate ethical principles....   [tags: essays research papers]

Divine Comedy - The Guardians of Dante's Inferno - The Guardians of Dante's Inferno      Dante's Inferno is one of the best written works of all time because it was written as an allegory inside an excellent story.  A key part of this allegory was how Dante used different guardians in the various circles of hell.  These guardians were used to symbolize the punishments of the sinners.      Minos is the guardian of Circle II, the circle of the Lustful.  He symbolizes an accusing personality because his job is to give punishments to the sinners.  The bodies of the sinners confess the sins automatically, and that shows the sinners know everything about themselves when it is too late to repent.  Minos is important because he is used to stress that none of the sinners can doubt which sins they have committed, and that the crime will receive a matching punishment.  The lustful were carried away by their passions in their previous lives, and therefore they are thrown about by a black wind.  Dante considers lust to be the highest sin because it is mutually committed to the pleasure of both parties....   [tags: Divine Comedy Inferno Essays] 1272 words

Plato begins to argue that injustice is never more profitable to a person than justice and Thrasymachus withdraws from the argument, granting Plato’s response....   [tags: literary analysis] 1807 words

No to Legalization of Marijuana - Marijuana should not be legalized because it will increase health issues, its use will rise rather than decline, and taxation will result in economic failure. In recent years, however, society has become very moderate, and this is why society’s views can be swayed by the benefits of legalization. Nowadays, legalizing marijuana is not that big of a deal as it was in the 60’s and 70’s when hippies and peace organizations were advocating for marijuana use. However, if marijuana is legalized it has been said that it might be the gateway drug to legalizing all illegal drugs....   [tags: persuasive]

Janet Adelman's Hamlet - Janet Adelman's Hamlet   Janet Alderman in her essay "'Man and Wife Is One Flesh':  Hamlet and the Confrontation with the Maternal Body" embraces the psychoanalytic tradition of Freud and Lacan in order to reveal the quadruple-angled relationship of the Hamlet monarchy.  Focusing primarily on the relationship between Gertrude and her son, Hamlet, Alderman attempts to recast the drama as a charged portrait of Oedipal disillusionment and Lacanian sexual-abnegation.  Appropriately, sexuality provides the impetus for Alderman's argument; toying with sex roles and the power of sexuality over family dynamics and identity, she craftily reveals Hamlet to be a son's battle for his mother's purity, a covetous attempt to regain a sense of sexual normalcy.  Alderman's casts Gertrude as a type of catch-all, garden-of-Eden, original-sin embodiment, who initiates the fall of the paternal and recreates the maternal "body as an enclosed garden newly breached" (Adelman 263).  Adelman frequently refers to Hamlet Sr....   [tags: Essays on Shakespeare Hamlet] 863 words
