Zeno of Elea - Zeno of Elea Zeno of Elea was born in Elea, Italy, in 490 B.C. He died there in 430 B.C., in an attempt to oust the city's tyrant. He was a noted pupil of Parmenides, from whom he learned most of his doctrines and political ideas. He believed that what exists is one, permanent, and unchanging. Zeno argued against multiplicity and motion. He did so by showing the contradictions that result from assuming that they were real. His argument against multiplicity stated that if the many exists, it must be both infinitely large and infinitely small, and it must be both limited and unlimited in number....   [tags: essays research papers] 429 words

The Masses - The Masses was a revolution. The Socialist magazine existed from 1911 to 1917, and during that time it promoted feminism, Marxism, Freudianism, Socialism, syndicalism, and anarchism. (Art for the Masses, p. 3) There were many radical magazines in the 1910's but The Masses stood out. Because it owed allegiance to no specific school of thought, this collaboration of bohemian artists and writers created a powerful energy and a unique voice. Unfortunately, their firm ideas would not be able to last long in the country at large....   [tags: Sociology ]

A Description and Analysis of the Reichsbahn (German Reich Railway) - Monstrous Technology / Innocent People:
A Description and Analysis of the Reichsbahn (German Reich Railway) Many of the 17 million1 (Newyk 45) victims of the Holocaust were transported to their eventual deaths by European railroads. Once a means of democratizing travel and an innovative wonder, railroads were transformed into technological beasts: symbols of the Shoah’s horror. The extensive European railroad network was leveraged by the Nazis to disguise what they called ‘resettlement’. “Special trains” were deployed to empty the ghettos and facilitate Hitler’s Final Solution which began in 1941....   [tags: Holocaust]

Assorted Canned Beverages (various Manufacturers) - Assorted canned beverages (various manufacturers) Beverage marketers have long recognized the value of a proprietary bottle shape when forging a brand’s identity.

Analysis of Little Girl Lost by Blake - Analysis of Little Girl Lost by Blake "A Little GIRL Lost" from Songs of Experience is one of Blake's most important poems. Though judging the aesthetic value of a poem is nearly impossible, I would contend that "A Little Girl Lost" is "better" than "The Little Girl Lost" found in Songs of Innocence. Perhaps because "A Little Girl Lost" was composed as an afterthought to its original counterpart, having been first written in "Innocence," it acts as a conclusion to the original poem. The two poems both observe a young girl as she encounters a world filled with innocence (in "The Little Girl Lost") and a world of experience ("A Little Girl Lost")....   [tags: Poem Poetry Analysis Poet Essays] 987 words

Multimedia and the Mass Communication of Science - Scientific studies are published for the scientific community. More specifically, they tend to be written with the expectation of being read by peers. This may seem obvious, and yet it shouldn't be. The style of writing that occurs when writing to peers cannot help but alienate a portion of the audience that should be informed. This also results in increasingly isolated divisions of the scientific community and widens the gaps between disciplines in terms of interests, language, and knowledge. Archaeology is one of the first fields to become dissatisfied with this division....   [tags: Research Analysis ]

The Grimm Brothers - The Grimm Brothers Any good fairy tale may captivate a child’s (or adult’s) mind, but few could argue that, to be truly enchanting, a tale needs great illustrations. Two of the most influential fairy tale tellers in history were the German Grimm brothers, Jacob and Wilhelm. Both very intelligent scholars, they knew how to spin a tale in the most effective way possible. However, they had plenty of work just dealing with the tales’ text, so in the area of illustration, they let their younger brother Ludwig take over, beginning with the second edition of their fairy tales....   [tags: Fairy Tales Grimm Brothers Essays]

In a letter to a friend Hardy discussed Leslie’s concerns: Though he [Leslie Stephens] liked the opening, he feared that the relations between Eustacia, Wildeve, and Thomasin might develop into something ‘dangerous’ for a family magazine, and he refused to have anything to do with it unless he could see the whole....   [tags: Essays Papers] 1458 words

Traditional Literature: Three Cinderellas - Most people are familiar with the Cinderella story as told in the translation by Marcia Brown. There are also cultural and parodied versions of this tale. For a cultural version, I will be referring to Sootface, an Ojibwa tale retold by Robert D. San Souci and illustrated by Daniel San Souci (San Souci, 1994). The parody I've chosen is "Cinderumpelstiltskin", found in the book The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales, by Jon Scieszka and illustrated by Lane Smith (Scieszka, 1992). All three renditions are picture storybooks, and have similarities in the cast of characters and in the motifs of transformation and magic, but there are significant differences within those similar themes....   [tags: Literary Analysis ]

Treatise for the Christian Soldier in John Milton’s Paradise Lost - Milton's Treatise for the Christian Soldier in Paradise Lost            While the War in Heaven, presented in Book VI of John Milton's Paradise Lost, operates as a refutation of the concept of glory associated with the epic tradition, the episode also serves a major theological purpose. It provides nothing less than a perfect example of how the Christian soldier should act obediently in combating evil, guarding against temptation, and remaining ever vigilant against the forces of darkness. It also offers the ultimate hope that Satan can be thwarted and comforts Christians in the knowledge that Satan cannot be victorious....   [tags: Milton Paradise Lost Essays]

Fun, Electrate, Autistic, Obsessive Home - Although some claim developing electracy will cause a downfall in society’s current learning abilities (Carr), I feel it creates a new type of learning style, that might even give an upper hand to people we otherwise might overlook. We have to consider that every new invention comes at a cost, but that does not necessarily mean the reward will not significantly outweigh it. Alison Bechdel’s “Fun Home” has an electrate quality through, not just the images, but the writing style and using obtuse meanings within her illustrations, that seem to enable a new learning style, supported by ‘disorders’ such as autism and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)....   [tags: Psychology ]

Culture of Critique - Americans have embraced debate since before we were a country. The idea that we would provide reasoned support for any position that we took is what made us different from the English king. Our love of debate came from the old country, and embedded itself in our culture as a defining value. Thus, it should not come as a surprise that the affinity for debate is still strong, and finds itself as a regular feature of the mainstream media. However, if Deborah Tannen of the New York Times is correct, our understanding of what it means to argue may be very different from what it once was; a “culture of critique” has developed within our media, and it relies on the exclusive opposition of two conflicting positions (Tannen)....   [tags: American Culture]
