Being Human - The age old question of what it means to be human can be answered through many viewpoints. There are several specie specific qualities that differentiate humans from any other creature, but with that being said, humans are often compared and contrasted with animals and machines. Some of these specific qualities are the ability to interpret, free will, and the use of language, but what does it really mean to be human. Everything created has specie specific qualities. Human beings are closely linked to animals because of the similarities of these specie specific qualities, but these alone do not make humans animals or animals humans....   [tags: Philosophy] 1024 words

The Good That Hate Produced: The Qualities of Malcom X - Born out of starvation and hustling in the streets but fueled by resentment against those who persecuted him, Malcolm X was a person that no single adjective could begin to describe. Malcolm X was not a man of perfection by any means, and at many times far from it, but he had an innate gift for speaking, rallying others behind whatever cause he felt was justified, be it forming an Islamic congregation in the middle of New York or speaking in front of a crowd of hardened criminals. Hatred passed on to people of color only served to stimulate Malcolm’s mind, by giving him a source on which to express his teachings to those that would listen, and even to those that would not....   [tags: Honesty, Experience, Objectivity] 941 words

Nietzche and Marx's Views on Human Potential - Trying to pursue the maximum human potential mirrors the futility of counting to the largest number. Human potential is unbounded as if it were a numerical value. The moment a summit appears to be within reach, a greater one surfaces with the same unattainable glare the conquered once held. Man prides himself in dominating new heights and although the biggest number will never be counted, he will never stop counting.

"All must love the human form" - William Blake uses his two compilations of poems, The Songs of Innocence (1789) and The Songs of Experience (1794) to present two opposing pictures of human divinity and human corruption in his two poems “The Divine Image” and “A Divine Image.” In these two poems Blake uses several techniques and literary devices to transmit his thoughts on the ideal and more realistic views of human nature. William Blake was born in 1757 and died in 1827 after living a very long, happy, and stable life; as opposed to many of the other important Romantic poets of his time....   [tags: Poetry Analysis ]

Emotion over Reason in the Romantic Poetry - The philosophical, literary, cultural, and artistic era of Romanticism was developed in the mid-18th century as a reaction to the prevailing enlightenment ideals of that time. This happened as more emotional, natural, and artistic themes were favored by Romantics. This influenced poetry in a great deal. A new form of poetry stressing on intuition over reason was actively being created. Proponents of this kind of poetry preferred the pastoral over the urban life. Efforts were made to use more colloquial language by repeatedly eschewing consciously poetic language....   [tags: human nature, oppression, culture] 1722 words

Was Eugenics Ever Moral? - Eugenics is the study or belief in the possibility of improving the qualities of the human species. Sounds good, right. But the question here is, is it moral to sacrifice someones life or the ability for someone to create life in the name of science. Surely Francis Galton and Gregor Mendel thought so. In the nineteenth century, biology was at its peak. Charles Darwin, who just happens to be Galton’s cousin, had just introduced his idea of survival of the fittest.

Life Cycle: Early Adulthood - ... Erikson’s views of these two types of characteristics imply that, “Each strength demonstrates an ascendance in association with positive resolution of its corresponding psychosocial crisis,” (Markstrom 1997). By completing each of these eight stages, an individual can assess a crisis, move on from it, and grow from it, showing resiliency. Society however, plays a huge roll in how ego strengths and virtues are derived or hindered.

Gender Inequality and the Human Future - Gender Inequality and the Human Future On Tuesday March 26th, Allan Johnson gave a lecture, "Unraveling the Gender Knot: Communities, Nature, and the Human Future." Johnson describes himself as being neither pessimistic or optimistic on the subject of the human future on the earth. He mentioned a quote, "We are of no more value than the simplest bacteria" and said that other species will not miss us when and if we’re gone. He attributes this to the general human disregard for the environment. This disregard has some relationship to gender inequality which stems from the patriarchal qualities of our society, since nature is viewed as feminine and as something that men can control....   [tags: Equality Feminist Feminism Essays] 566 words

The Evolution of Human Mating - The Evolution of Human Mating It may seem obvious to some why people mate, however there are many facets to human mating. Psychology has shown that reasons for mating have gone beyond the scope of love and physical attractiveness. People may search for mates who resemble archetypical images of the opposite-sex parent, mates with characteristics that are either complementary or similar to one's own qualities, or mates with whom to make an exchange of valuable resources (Buss 238). Although these theories play a key role in understanding patterns in human mating preferences, evolutionary psychology and sexual selection theory provide more concrete frameworks for explaining human mating....   [tags: Papers] 924 words
