Plato's Happiest Way of Life - Plato's Happiest Way of Life A just life in a just society would be the happiest possible way to live for Plato. Justice is defined as a balanced and well-integrated specialization of functions both within the scope of society and the individual. The just society classifies its members on the basis of individual differences in intellectual and physical abilities and is therefore warranted. The way to achieve a happy life is only half satisfied with the presence of a just society. Other than living in a just society, the harmony between the parts within an individual's mind or soul is as important....   [tags: Papers] 777 words

Ernest Hemingway - In the first chapter, the reader is introduced to both Jake Barnes and Robert Cohn. As Jake describes Cohn and criticizes his personality and behavior, the narrator is revealing much about himself as well. Jake's cynicism is developed through the foil of the naïve and somewhat doltish Cohn. Jake keeps a distant, noncommittal stance from this passive man, just as he keeps a distant, noncommittal stance on life and relationships in general with the help of his ironic views. Cohn is a good target for Jake to practice his irony on....   [tags: essays research papers] 364 words

In the novel Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Elizabeth Bennett is the focal character, which causes the reader to feel closest to her. The reader can relate more easily to her feelings and actions, and given that all of Elizabeth’s opinions on large issues are known and understood, the reader tends to side with her. By making the story from the point of view of Elizabeth, Austen is able to take advantage of the closeness between reader and character to make a political statement about the institution of marriage, and thus shows her own feeling that it is a mistake to marry for any other reason besides love....   [tags: essays research papers] 1355 words

Merchant of Venice - Portia was No Feminist - Merchant of Venice: Portia was No Feminist The question has been proposed whether Portia was her own woman, and if after she married Bassanio would she still be the protector of her fortune. I researched for evidence to the theory that Portia was not her own, her fortune was not her own, and she was bound financially to her husband after marriage. There is nothing out of the ordinary about this particular arrangement, and I don't feel that the relationship should continue to be hailed as a progressive, feminist relationship....   [tags: Merchant Venice Essays] 367 words

Symbols and Symbolism in Long Day's Journey into Night -   Symbolism is used throughout O¹Neill¹s Long Day¹s Journey into Night, a portrayal of the  author¹s life.  The three prominent symbols, the fog, the foghorn, and Mary¹s glasses, represent the characters¹ isolation from reality.  The symbols in ³Long Day¹s Journey into  Night² are used to substitute illusion for reality.  Although Mary is the character directly associated with living in illusion, all characters in the play try to hide from the truth in their own ways. At the beginning of the second act, O'Neill notes a change in setting which has taken place since the play opened.  No sunlight comes into the room now  and there is a faint haziness in the air.  This haziness or fog obscures one¹s perception  of the world, and it parallels the attempts of each member of the family to obscure or hide reality.  Tyrone, for example, drinks whiskey to escape his son¹s criticism of how cheap he is.  The reference to fog always has a double meaning in this play,  referring both to the atmosphere and to the family.  Much of the activity carried on by the Tyrone family is under-handed and sneaky, they are always attempting to put something over on somebody  and obscure the truth....   [tags: Long Day's Journey into Night] 659 words

Kathleen Norris' Dakota - Kathleen Norris' Dakota Kathleen Norris uses small town society to illustrate a much larger phenomenon that occurs in America: The obstruction of truth in the name of progress and patriotism. Norris makes an example of a small Dakota town, the old families ingrained in local society who act as somewhat of a censorship committee, silently fixing the past's blunders and bad dreams so not to discourage themselves or the younger generation: A good story is one that isn't demanding, that proceeds from A to B, and above all doesn't remind us of the bad times, the cardboard patches we used to wear in our shoes, the failed farms, the way people you love just up and die....   [tags: Kathleen Norris Dakota] 653 words

My Goal of Teaching - To state that my goal is to become a teacher in the primary grades of elementary school is somewhat like writing a one-sentence synopsis of an intricate and wonderful dream. In Webster's Dictionary the word "goal" is defined as: "A point towards which effort or movement is directed; the objective point or terminus that one is striving to reach; the end aimed at." In each of the definitions the aim of the goal is stagnant. My goal of teaching feels much more like a living thing. I would define it more as a journey than a goal....   [tags: College Admissions Essays] 547 words

The Idealist and The Realist in A Separate Peace - A Seperate Peace The Idealist I would say that Finny(Phineas) was the biggest idealist in the story. His feelings and many things on many issues, made me think of him this way. The actions that Finny take in the novel make him seem as though he is the happiest person on the planet, like for instance when he says "There is no war", this showed that he wasn't really bothered by the war which during that time period I believe it meant happiness. Finny also never lost faith in his so called friend Gene even though I think he knew in the back of his mind that Gene was against him the whole time yet also admired him at the same point....   [tags: Separate Peace Essays] 534 words

Civilization in Brave New World - Civilization in Brave New World        The dictionary defines civilized as "advanced in social customs, art, and science".  The keyword here is social customs.  A persons idea of what is civilized is relative to his culture.  Through out the history of man, one can see many changes in customs, and customs is what defines our idea of what is civilized.  The word civilized is one of the most relative concepts.        Time and distance are what have shaped our customs for thousands of years.  If we look back throughout history we can see many customs that may seem odd, or even barbaric, to us but were everyday events to these ancient people.  For example, the Aztec conducted sacrifices, to their Gods, in which they torn out their victims heart with a knife, and their priests and warriors proceeded to eat the victims flesh.  Yet, the Aztec were considered to be one of the most civilized group of Indians in the western hemisphere....   [tags: Brave New World] 641 words
