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." People should make judgements of the person's character, not by their appearance, race, religion, sexuality, and morals....   [tags: essays research papers] 633 words

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. I want to commence with a brief, terminological point. Mill uses the term "judgement" interchangeably with the term "proposition," both of which can be defined provisionally as the bearers of truth or falsity. In most of his discussion, however, he uses the language of "propositions;" consequently, I do the same in this paper....   [tags: Philosophy Logic Philosophical Essays] 2028 words

The role of judgement in The Outsider - The role of judgement in The Outsider The actions of Meursault, the protagonist in The Outsider by Albert Camus, are characterized by irrationality. For example, there is no clear logical reason for his decision to marry Marie or to kill the Arab. “That evening, Marie came round for me and asked me if I wanted to marry her. I said I didn’t mind and we could do if she wanted to” (Camus 44). However, the idea that things sometimes happen for no reason is disturbing and threatening to society, because, as a logical conclusion from that, individual existence could have happened for no reason and would therefore be purposeless....   [tags: English Literature]

However, in any conflict, at least one party must make sacrifices to work toward a resolution. Athena achieves her paradoxical result by misleading Apollo to think that he has received total victory in judgment and by offering compensatory powers to the Erinyes, thus creating an illusion of satisfaction for all amidst a reality of compromise. Athena first addresses Apollo's argument of the superiority of paternity, but she allows compromise by never fully admitting that Clytemnestra's murder was morally justified....   [tags: Aeschylus Oresteia] 791 words

He does so in the belief that an investigation into the form of prepredicative experience will show it to be the ground of the structure of predicative thought, and thus the origin of general, conceptual thought....   [tags: Judgment Edmund Husserl Essays]

Lack of Judgment by King Lear - Lack of Judgment by King Lear         King Lear is a play written by William Shakespeare that focuses on the relationships of many characters, some good, and some evil.  This is a great tragedy that is full of injustice at the beginning and the restoration of justice towards the end.  The good are misjudged as evil and the evil are accepted as good.  It is not until the end of the play that the righteous people are recognized as such.  There is great treachery and deceit involved in the hierarchy of English rule....   [tags: King Lear essays]

Nelson on Descartes's Theory of Perception and Judgment - Nelson on Descartes?s Theory of Perception and Judgment ABSTRACT: One tension in Descartes?s account of human error stems from the idea that we may be faulted for our acts of will, despite the fact that God is our omnipotent and omniscient creator. In the present essay, I describe a second tension in Descartes?s account of human error. After describing the tension, I consider Alan Nelson?s characterization of the means by which Descartes?s intended to relieve it. Although Nelson's interpretation is almost correct, I think that it obscures some of the interesting details of Descartes?s theory of perception and judgment....   [tags: Descarte Philosophy]

September 11 and the Death of Moral Judgment - September 11 and the Death of Moral Judgment The nation is in crisis: a national security crisis and a crisis of moral judgment. What is the right thing to do. People disagree. Then comes the big mistake: observing disagreement, people conclude that there is no right answer, no way to make a judgment. Worse, they conclude that to judge is arrogant and dangerous, so that in an odd twist, the only thing that appears to be morally irresponsible is the attempt to make a morally responsible judgment....   [tags: September 11 Terrorism Essays] 956 words

Toni Morrison's Sula - The Judgment of Sula - The Judgment of Sula Toni Morrison first took the stage as a writer in 1970 with her book The Bluest Eye. In 1973 she published her second novel Sula, and she has been writing ever since. Sara Blackburn reviewed Sula for the New York Times when it first made its way onto the scene, and while she did offer a nice plot summary, her review seemed to carry a message addressed to Morrison rather than to the reader. Blackburn begins her article by discussing Morrison's first book, The Bluest Eye, claiming that because of the women's movement The Bluest Eye attracted more attention than it would have and that it was read uncritically because people were pleased with a new talent and ignored the flaws of the book (par 1)....   [tags: Sula Essays] 711 words

Shaffer and Camus pass judgment on Dysart and Meursault through their lack and removal of passion. In Equus, Dysart specifically mentions the lack of passion in himself. When speaking to Hesther, Dysart criticizes himself for his fake love for the wild and primitive. He states, “I settled for being pallid and provincial, out of my own eternal timidity” (2.25). This statement, just a small part of the entire rant against himself, is opposed by Hesther....   [tags: compare, contrast, comparison] 1175 words

Displays of Good Judgment in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet - It has been proposed, concerning the play, Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, that Romeo behaves rashly while Juliet shows superior judgment.

Jason is guilty of all four acts and Medea involves herself in three. Yet, perhaps, in the eyes of Dante, Medea might fall further into the realm of Dis than Jason. But, should she. And, is Dante's view of Jason and his sentence in Hell appropriate.   From Dante's perspective, crimes of passion or desire are the least abhorrent and consequently deserve minimal punishment in comparison to what he believes are the more serious offenses....   [tags: Divine Comedy Inferno Essays]
