This girl is of mixed blood, with a divided common ancestry, and no real collective roots to trace. Williams begins to make the observation that this is the direction that the world is moving in, as Clifford puts it—“an inevitable momentum.” Clifford believes in that, “in an interconnected world, one is always to varying degrees, ‘inauthentic.’” In making this statement, Clifford is perhaps only partially accurate....   [tags: essays papers] 2714 words

Willing and Knowing - Willing and Knowing ABSTRACT: This paper discusses W. K. Clifford's classic paper, "The Ethics of Belief," and the significance of his use of the locution "knowingly and willingly" in the context of morally irresponsible ignorance. It is argued that this locution can point to a very subtle and important distinction in the premisses of ethically responsible belief formation. An analysis of willful ignorance is then given. It is argued that, strictly speaking, there is no such thing as willful ignorance: what is called willful ignorance in ordinary language is just the phenomena of getting oneself knowingly to believe something by willingly and knowingly altering the evidence for one's belief, rather than the genuine phenomenon of getting oneself willingly to believe something against the evidence....   [tags: Philosophy Philosophical Papers]

Pain in its Personal and Medical Context - ... Scarry does, however, acknowledge the fact that the Gate-Control Theory of Pain and the McGill Pain Questionnaire have been added tools for doctors, which have stepped away from simply asking whether a patient feels moderate or intense pain and have began to use more adjectives to not only describe intensity, but rather a pain’s frequency, locations, thermal properties, etc. As a final note in this section, Elaine Scarry makes it a point that in order to relieve someone of their pain, they must first understand it....   [tags: Medical, The Body in Pain, Elaine Scarry]

Should College Athletes Be Paid? - College athletes have traditionally never been paid in the modern era. The amateur tradition that we know actually began in Victorian times during the 19th century. (Classical athletes in Greek and Roman times were always professionals no matter what their status.) This state of affairs has been accepted over the last 200 years in Western culture. Athletes do, however, help to create substantial revenue for colleges, including indirectly through advertising money. One possible solution to this might be to allow athletes to have their own endorsement deals, personally....   [tags: Sports] 679 words

Out of the Darkness: Female Genital Mutiliation - Since the 1790s, women have been struggling to overcome the confines imposed on them by dominant patriarchal societies. (Andrea and Overfield 257).

The Analysis Of Light And Dark - The Analysis of Light and Dark Imagery Nathaniel Hawthorne's The House of the Seven Gables, uses many qualities of symbolism which help develop the novel's main ideas. Darkness is the emblematic 'color'; of the Pyncheon's. Contrasted with its opposite, light, it forms one of the major symbols of the novel: the opposition of dark and light. Hawthorne uses dark imagery throughout his novel to express a sense of decay, but he also uses light imagery to inject hope.

Lady Chatterley's Lover - Lady Chatterley's Lover The greatness of Lady Chatterley's Lover lies in a paradox: it is simultaneously progressive and reactionary, modern and Victorian. It looks backwards towards a Victorian stylistic formality, and it seems to anticipate the social morality of the late 20th century in its frank engagement with explicit subject matter and profanity. One might say of the novel that it is formally and thematically conservative, but methodologically radical. The easiest of these assertions to prove is that Lady Chatterley's Lover is "formally conservative." By this I mean that there are few evident differences between the form of Lady Chatterley's Lover and the form of the high-Victorian novels written fifty years earlier: in terms of structure; in terms of narrative voice; in terms of diction, with the exception of a very few "profane" words....   [tags: essays research papers] 983 words
