The Ediacaran Fauna - Up until 1947, it was believed that the Cambrian Explosion marked the first true abundance of multicellular life. However, this was discovered to be untrue after Sir Douglas Mawson and R.C. Sprigg mistakenly came across numerous "fossil jellyfish" in the Ediacara Hills while observing what was originally believed to be sandstones belonging to the lowest strata of the Cambrian. At first, these finding were dismissed as "fortuitous inorganic markings."(AAS Biographical Memoirs.)

David Hume and Future Occurrences - David Hume and Future Occurrences In An Inquiry Concerning Human Understanding, David Hume demonstrates how there is no way to rationally make any claims about future occurrences.

But he points out that we are incorrect to believe that we are justified in using our experience of the past as a means of evidence of what will happen in the future....   [tags: Philosophy Hume Philosophical Essays]

The reader is very closely bound to the characters thoughts and impressions as well as the mood and state of mind. Jane appeared to be deeply preoccupied with the influence her surroundings had on her. The text is exceedingly descriptive and full of symbols. Therefore, the author takes the opportunity to relate elements of theme with symbols along with meanings beyond the reader’s first impressions. For starters, the house that the characters rent out for the summer is introduced as an isolated house situated “Quite three miles from the village” (Gilman 1392)....   [tags: Literary Analysis, Gilman] 1402 words

As the period of the Renaissance came to a close, the popular paradigm for philosophers shifted from faith to reason and finally settling on the senses. Thinkers began to challenge authorities, including great teachers such as Aristotle and Plato, and through skepticism the modern world began.
