Sir Isaac Newton - ... As he looked at his surroundings, he watched as an apple fell from one of the trees on his family’s property. It wasn’t as if this was anything out of the ordinary for an apple to do, however, it made him wonder, why exactly the apple fall downward towards the ground. He continued to question, why does the apple fall down to the ground, yet the moon above him remain suspended in the sky; why doesn’t the moon plummet towards the earth as well. “As he later recalled, 'All this was in the two plague years of 1665 and 1666, for in those days I was in my prime of age for invention, and minded mathematics and philosophy more than at any time since.' In mathematics Newton conceived his 'method of fluxions' (infinitesimal calculus), laid the foundations for his theory of light and color, and achieved significant insight into the problem of planetary motion, insights that eventually led to the publication of his Principia (1687).” (Hatch) In 1667, Newton returned to the University of Cambridge to continue his studies and obtain his masters degree....   [tags: Biography ]

Romantic Sensibility - In life as well as literature, some sought to display their sensibility by weeping and fainting and blushing and reacting extravagantly to scenes of poverty or illness. Sensibility was understood as a capacity intimately connected with the physical nature of nerves. Essential to its existence was its operation on the body as well as the mind. Thus a propensity to blush and weep might be taken as evidence that the weepers, full of sensibility, loved their neighbours as themselves. (Spacks 141) During the Romantic period, the Sensibility movement began: as a result, the "conduct of private affections, charity, education, sympathy, genius, honour, and even the use of reason…became political statements" (Jones 13)....   [tags: Romantic Period]

Doctor Faustus as Tragic Hero - Doctor Faustus as Tragic Hero Doctor Faustus died a death that few could bear to imagine, much less experience.  After knowing for many years when exactly he would die, he reached the stroke of the hour of his destiny in a cowardly, horrid demeanor.  Finally, when the devils appeared at the stroke of midnight, tearing at his flesh as they draw him into his eternal torment, he screams for mercy without a soul, not even God Himself, to help him.  However, what to consider Doctor John Faustus from Christopher Marlow's dramatic masterpiece The Tragical History of the Life and Death of Doctor Faustus is a very debatable issue.  For example, one can see that he threw his life away for the sake of knowledge, becoming obsessed with the knowledge that he could possess.  In this case, he is unarguably a medieval tragic hero.  However, when considering the fact that he died for the sake of gaining knowledge, pushing the limits of what is possible in spite of obvious limitations and, eventually, paying the ultimate penalty, he could be considered a Renaissance martyr.  These two points of view have their obvious differences, and depending on from what time period one chooses to place this piece of literature varies the way that the play is viewed.  However, the idea of considering him a martyr has many flaws, several of which are evident when considering who Faustus was before he turned to necromancy and what he did once he obtained the powers of the universe.  Therefore, inevitably, the audience in this play should realize that Faustus was a great man who did many great things, but because of his hubris and his lack of vision, he died the most tragic of heroes....   [tags: Doctor Faustus Essays]
