Indeed, for Kant, experience of the beautiful may be necessary in order to found what Kant views as the final end of morality — the ethical community — since human moral psychology requires embodiments of moral ideas....   [tags: Argumentative Ethics Aesthetic Papers]

Free Admissions Essays: This Beautiful Life - This Beautiful Life   " We go AIDS unit now." These words were spoken in fragmented English by a tiny Thai woman dressed in a crisp white nurse's uniform, complete with a stiff little hat perched on top of her overly styled black hair, teased and sprayed to perfection. I looked down at the nurse, somewhat startled. I certainly had not expected to be permitted to see into the gruesome reality of taboo Thai culture.   I had come to Lampang, Northern Thailand with nine other American students on my first of several community service programs to the country....   [tags: Medicine College Admissions Essays] 1227 words

College Admissions Essay: Life is Beautiful - Life is Beautiful A friend of mine recently sent me an email with an aphorism that read, "Don't try so hard, the best things come when you least expect them to." I shuddered at its implications. According to this, the best things come to you; you do not elicit them. Trying hard, it seems, is irrelevant to what becomes of our life. I would rephrase it: "Try so hard that it becomes easy, and accept the best things as the best person to receive them." For it is only hard because you do not know that it is easy....   [tags: College Admissions Essays] 395 words

The Beautiful in Kant's Third Critique and Aristotle's Poetics - The Beautiful in Kant's Third Critique and Aristotle's Poetics ABSTRACT: I argue that Kant's analysis of the experience of the beautiful in the third Critique entails an implicit or potential experience of the sublime, that is, the sublime as he himself describes it. Finding the sublime in the beautiful is what I call philosophical beauty. I then consider some aspects of Aristotle's analysis of tragedy in the Poetics, specifically his identification of the key elements of tragedy as those involving the experience of fear and pity, which leads to a catharsis of these emotions....   [tags: Kant Third Critique Aristotle Poetics Essays] 3443 words

Black is Beautiful in Shakespeare's Sonnets and Astrophil and Stella - Black is Beautiful in Shakespeare's Sonnets and Sidney's Astrophil and Stella   Germinating in anonymous Middle English lyrics, the subversion of the classical poetic representation of feminine beauty as fair-haired and blue-eyed took on new meaning in the age of exploration under sonneteers Sidney and Shakespeare. No longer did the brown hair of "Alison" only serve to distinguish her from the pack; the features of the new "Dark Lady" became more pronounced and sullied, and her eroticized associations with the foreignness of the New World grew more explicit through conceits of colonization....   [tags: Shaksespeare Sonnet essays] 1273 words

Love - Neither Beautiful Nor Ugly, Neither Good Nor Bad - Love - Neither Beautiful Nor Ugly, Neither Good Nor Bad Socrates stuns the Symposium when he tells how Diotima showed him that “Love is neither beautiful nor good,” thus contradicting the theme of all speeches before his (201E).

Comparing Romantic Opposition in Billy Budd, Bartleby the Scrivener and Artist of the Beautiful - Romantic Opposition in Billy Budd, Bartleby the Scrivener and The Artist of the Beautiful       Herman Melville wrote some of the most widely read works in the history of literature during the late nineteenth century.  He has become a writer with whom the romantic era is associated and a man whose works have become a standard by which modern literature is judged.  One of his most well-known and widely studied short pieces of fiction is a story entitled, simply, Billy Budd.  In this short story, Melville tells the tale of Billy Budd, a somewhat out-of-place stuttering sailor who is too innocent for his own good.  This enchanting tale, while inevitably entertaining, holds beneath it many layers of interpretive depth and among these layers of interpretation, an idea that has been entertained in the literature of many other romantic writers.  Melville uses a literary technique of developing two characters that are complete opposites in all aspects and contrasting them throughout the narrative, thus allowing their own personalities to adversely compliment each other....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Beautiful Piety - Gerard Manley Hopkins was a meticulous man who became a Jesuit priest and worked hard at spreading his faith in Roman Catholicism. Hopkins was acknowledged for his religious themes as well as his unique poetic techniques. Hopkins's poems consisted of what he called `sprung rhythm' as well as assonance, alliteration, and internal rhyme. Hopkins often resembled Romantic poets with his affection for nature and aim for individuality. With his strongly distinct language and eccentric forms, Hopkins's work was often regarded as a twentieth-century poet's writing rather than a Victorian poet's....   [tags: Poetry] 1565 words
