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 belie...   [tags: Philosophy Philosophical Papers]

The Country- House Poem Genre - The country- house poem developed into a literary genre in the early decades of the seventeenth- century. Aemilia Lanyer's, `The description of Cooke- ham', and Ben Jonson's, `To Penshurst' namely represent the small genre which flourished so briefly. These poems are much more than domestic architecture and are more than simple exercises in praising and pleasing a wealthy patron and the readership at large. In country- house poetry, poets use the conjunction of the ideal family (the patron's) and the ideal site (the estate and surrounding areas in which the patron and his/her family live) as a means of reflecting on social values, the nature of the good life, and the ways in which other hous...   [tags: Poetry] 1374 words

Optometric Surgery - According to a survey conducted on Student Doctor Network, fifty-six percent of voters voted “absolutely No” to allowing Optometrists to conduct surgeries. These voters were M.D’s, D.O’s, or current medical students. In the United States, surgery is currently not apart of the average optometrist’s job description (Bureau of Labor Statistics). Although access to surgical procedures may increase, optometrists should not be allowed to perform surgery because they are inexperienced with modern surgical procedures, patients may not even understand the difference between an “optometrist” and “ophthalmologist”, and operations conducted by optometrists ultimately place patients’ health at risk....   [tags: Medical Research]

Use of Imagery in A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry - Theatrical dramas breathe life into the words of a playwright by pulling together characters, setting, sound and imagery. Some playwrights provide a high level of detail to the setting so the reader or audience member can envision what the writer is trying to convey. However, writers also make use of imagery as a means to complement the setting, providing the reader with a deeper experience of the story. In the play “A Raisin in the Sun” Lorraine Hansberry uses imagery as a way to supplement the setting of a small apartment in Chicago by transforming an ordinary household plant into something that intertwines with the overall sense of hope and oppression felt throughout the play....   [tags: Writing, Setting, Play]
