Judgement - Judgement People can often be treated and judged in a less than equal manner before people even know the true nature of the person, such as the way that the Finch children think that Boo Radley is some kind of a monster. Or the way people call Atticus Finch is called a nigger-lover. One of my most favorite quotations is that of Martin Luther King Junior. "I have a dream, that one day my children will be judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

Witness, observation, judgement and examination - ... 194). The final element through which power is upheld and human beings are objectified is in the examination process. Examination “combines the techniques of an observing hierarchy and those of a normalising judgment. It is a normalising gaze, a surveillance that makes it possible to quantify to classify and to punish” (Reference), fundamentally for Foucault examination functions as a penal mechanism within the disciplinary machine (Reference p. 177). To witness actively implicates and draws another into the process and in this sense it can be understood that we are all witnesses, whether it be as a witness to the testimony of another or to an experience that leaves an emotional impression on us....   [tags: Literary Analysis, Frank, Foucault] 1790 words

Judgement According to Mill - Judgement According to Mill This paper discusses Mill’s views about judgement as presented in Book I of A System of Logic. Its purpose is twofold: first, to understand the exact nature of the question Mill asks about judgement; and second, to expound his answer thereto.

And so with age his body uglier grows, So his mind cankers.” (IV.I. 188-192) Prospero’s judgement on Caliban changes considerably throughout ‘The Tempest.’ However Caliban is always referred to as of a much lower status than Prospero, such as “poisonous slave” and “dull thing.” In the lines 188-192, act four, scene one, Prospero’s judgement on Caliban is possibly the most scathing throughout the entirety of the play....   [tags: Papers] 975 words

It was believed that women should be ‘kept’ by their husbands, who being the chief bread maker should look after his wife and their finances. Up until recently women were not afforded special rights in equity that are available to them today. The case of Barclays Bank and O’Brien 1994 has been significant in establishing rights for wives who have been unduly influenced by their husbands into risking their property for the debts of their husbands....   [tags: Papers] 1334 words

When Morality Opposes Justice: Human Nature - ... Looking at the foundations that liberals rely on, moral psychologists admit that justice and care are two totally different foundations of morality. These two foundations matter a lot in protecting individuals as morality is all about protecting individuals. Therefore, if conservative morality goes beyond justice, then it may be concluded that the moral emotions and intuitions that are not related to justice can oppose moral emotions and intutions that are associated with it. To liberals the two foundations they rely on are more relevant to moral judgement while to conservatives the other three foundations are the ones that are more relevant to moral judgement....   [tags: Ethics ]

Questioning the Validity of Young Love: Were Romeo and Juliet really in love? - Were Romeo and Juliet really in love. “Romeo and Juliet” is a tale of misunderstood youths who fall in ‘love.’ Romeo and Juliet undoubtedly believed they were in love. Circumstances surrounding their unprecedented meeting, individual lives, call into question the validity of their love. To the rest of their world Romeo and Juliet’s connection seems superficial. Their age and immaturity leads the protagonists to the misconception that their love is monumental and unique. A complex combination of circumstances, fate and the protagonists themselves, ultimately contribute to the most controversial question ever asked in one of Shakespeare’s most famous works....   [tags: shakespeare, literary analysis] 1202 words

Minor Characters in Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre - The Minor Characters of Jane Eyre All the minor characters who appear in the novel, Jane Eyre are only sketched in, so to speak. They are "flat"; not developed in the way that the central three characters are developed. All of them are conventional; behave and speak conventionally, and do not develop at all. They are set merely as foils for the central characters, and they tend to be extremes or stereotypes, behaving very predictably and not surprising us with any unexpected reaction....   [tags: Jane Eyre Essays] 524 words

Affirmative Action - The purpose of affirmative action is to ensure equal opportunity for minorities. But it has strayed from its original intent and has become largely a program to achieve not equal opportunity but equal results. It is a system of quotas forced upon American businesses and working class by the federal government. A law which forces people to look at race before looking at the individual cannot promote equal opportunity. Affirmative action continues the judgement of minorities by race; it causes reverse discrimination, and contradicts its purpose....   [tags: essays research papers] 556 words

Instilling A Childs Values - Instilling a Child's Values Some people think that a child learns only by what his or her parents teach them, while others believe that a child is born with a set of values.

As parents, couples have many responsibilities toward their child; the most important responsibility is teaching them good values and judgement.

The Beliefs of Justice and Forgiveness in Christianity - The Beliefs of Justice and Forgiveness in Christianity For Christians, Jesus was sent from God to bring justice to the earth and in the Kingdom of God, when it fully arrives, justice will reign. Christians believe that justice is more than just doing what is right. “Act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6: V8) is an example of what is said in the Bible. As well as this, justice concerns the element of judgement.

Insanity in Shakespeare's Hamlet - Madness in Hamlet - Madness in Hamlet        Hamlet's choice to put on an "antic disposition" leads to his downfall; it is a tragic error in judgement (hamartia) which destroys his relationship with Ophelia and Gertrude. It is Hamlet's hubris. Another result from Hamlet's peculiar actions, is that in his own mind he begins to believe that he is mad.  It is unfortunate that Hamlet's plan did not succeed; not only did it lead to his own downfall but he had to witness the downfall of all of the people he loved.     With his choice to put on this act of antic disposition, he takes the risk of losing close touch with his loved ones....   [tags: Shakespeare Hamlet 123 Help Me]

He is prompted to write the reply because Davenant mentions Hobbes in the preface to the epic poem, Gondibert. Hobbes notes up front that he is hindered in two ways because he is 1) incompetent in poetry and 2) flattered by the praise Davenant has lauded him. These hindrances don't prevent Hobbes from detailing a general theory of poetry....   [tags: Answer to Davenant's Preface to Gondibert] 1078 words

Are Emotions Ethically Significant? - Are Emotions Ethically Significant. Introduction The ethical significance of the emotions is a potentially enormous and difficult topic. Some of the positions that can be maintained include: 1 No moral judgements (either positive or negative) can legitimately be made of emotions. 2 Emotions are subject to moral praise or blame in just the same way (or, analogous to the way) that acts are. 3 Emotions are subject to moral praise or blame, but in a very different way from acts. 4 Emotions are the primary carriers of value, while rationality is purely instrumental ('reason is a value-neutral technique'); therefore moral judgement should properly concern itself only with the emotions, their origins and effects....   [tags: Philosophy Philosophical Papers]

Although God has revealed His truth to them, they have suppressed it, resulting in the darkness of their inner man and rebellion against God to the point of worshipping animals (1:18-23). As a result God gave them over to do the desires of their heart (1:24, 26): idolatry (1:25) and homosexuality (1:26-27). Seeing that they had no desire to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a depraved mind to do every sort of evil (1:28-31)....   [tags: essays research papers fc]

Analysis of King Leontes' Transformation - Analysis of King Leontes' Transformation Jealousy and judgement, or rather misjudgement, seem to be major themes in Shakespeare’s plays, in which most judgements are assumed by no logical basis or intellectual wit. King Leontes, unlike Othello, comes to his conclusion by his own means, without any outside verification of truth or logical explanation for his jealousy. However, there are many similarities, based on their situation, between him and Othello. Both men transform, emotionally, into beast like figures whose actions ultimately end their lineage....   [tags: King Leontes William Shakespeare Essays]

Focalizing, meaning that it is the narrator's voice that speaks, but we see through the eyes of the characters, gives us the chance to understand the characters without direct dialogue. By telling us that Elizabeth was 'growing more angry but trying to compose herself' (Pride and Prejudice, p148) you start to understand that something important must have happened in order to have affected Elizabeth in such a profound way....   [tags: European Literature] 792 words

In fact, he is a criminal, James Gatz, who, although he appears to be an epitome of the idealistic American Dream, having grown from an impoverished childhood into a life of excess and splendour, he has obtained everything through crime and corruption. Indeed, it has been said that ‘The Great Gatsby’ is “a parable of disenchantment with the ‘American Dream’” , and it is, for the American Dream is the idea that “through hard work, courage and determination, one could achieve prosperity.” James Gatz did not obtain his prosperous lifestyle through “hard work”, but rather through felony....   [tags: F.
