Hobbes' First Three Laws of Nature and the Fool's Objection - Hobbes' First Three Laws of Nature and the Fool's Objection Thomas Hobbes begins The Leviathan by establishing the idea that all men are created equal, although every man perceives himself as smarter than the next. As Hobbes says: "[men] will hardly believe there are many so wise as themselves; for they see their own wit at hand, and other men's at a distance" (25). He then argues for psychological egoism, describing mankind as driven by self-interest and, ultimately, only self-interest. This leads mankind to a constant state of war where human beings will pit themselves against each other in competition because "if any two men desire the same thing, which nevertheless they cannot both enjoy, they become enemies: (25)....   [tags: Ethics] 1155 words

George Meredith’s First Two Sonnets - George Meredith’s First Two Sonnets When we first look at the sonnet there is an obvious difference to usual sonnets, this is because a normal sonnet has a series of quatrains and has 14 lines. Whereas these sonnets are continuous, with the same harsh tone throughout. It is also apparent that they have 16 lines rebelling against the usual 14 lines, this is to imply that nothing is harsh enough to explain love and that a person cannot explain love in words. The first word of the sonnet “It” personifies the night, and instantly implies that he has to struggle through the night....   [tags: Papers] 869 words

Descartes' First Meditation - Descartes' First Meditation Works Cited Missing      Descartes believes that knowledge comes from within the mind. This is a single indisputable fact to build on that can be gained through individual reflection. While seeking true knowledge, Descartes writes his Six Meditations. In these meditations, Descartes tries to develop a strong foundation, which all knowledge can be built upon. In the First Meditation, Descartes begins developing this foundation through the method of doubt. He casts doubt upon all his previous beliefs, including “matters which are not entirely certain and indubitable [and] those which appear to be manifestly false.” (Descartes, p.75, par.3) Once Descartes clears away all beliefs that can be called into doubt, he can then build a strong base for all true knowledge to stand upon....   [tags: Descartes Philosophy Philosophical Papers] 2070 words
