Fulfilling the Prophecy of Brave New World - Fulfilling the Prophecy of Brave New World "Community, Identity, Stability" is the motto of the World State in the Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, a state intent on keeping itself intact. In the stable state, the people must be happy with the status quo; they must not be able to imagine a better world, and must not think of a worse one. In the stable state, a few people must be able to cope with unexpected change, but they should be unable to initiate it.

Brave New World: Out of Control - Brave New World: Out of Control In the 1932 satirical novel Brave New World, Aldous Huxley describes an emotionless, mechanized world of the future, set mostly in London, in which individuality is eliminated, creativity is stifled, and such institutions as marriage, family, and church are unpleasant artifacts of a world long gone. In this society, people are mass-produced; human eggs are artificially engineered by technicians.

Postman's Analysis of Brave New World - Postman's Analysis of Brave New World As analyzed by social critic Neil Postman, Huxley's vision of the future, portrayed in the novel Brave New World, holds far more relevance to present day society than that of Orwell's classic 1984. Huxley's vision was simple: it was a vision of a trivial society, drowned in a sea of pleasure and ignorant of knowledge and pain, slightly resembling the world of today. In society today, knowledge is no longer appreciated as it has been in past cultures, in turn causing a deficiency in intelligence and will to learn....   [tags: Brave New World] 772 words

Modernism and New Criticism - Modernism and New Criticism The ways in which we define the importance of texts is constantly changing. We can look back and see critical theories used, such as Historical Criticism, Reader-Response Criticism and Psychoanalytic Criticism. Each of these theories offers a different way to interpret a text. However, when looking back over the texts of a specific era, shouldn’t the type of criticism we used for a book be based on that time period. Defining the Modernist Era of literature seems almost impossible, since the definition of modernism often seems to constitute anything from being “new and common” to “new and uncommon” (Barzun)....   [tags: Modernism New Criticism Literature Essays]

The Kingdom of God: The Old Testament Hebrew God as Hypocritical and Capricious - Regarded by his people as a merciful god, Yahweh, the Hebrew god, historically existed as a lawless entity before evolving into the merciful being, which Jews, Christians, and Catholics alike worship to this day. In Genesis, the first book of the Old Testament in the Holy Bible, Yahweh (heretofore referred to as “God”) first creates humankind, and later establishes guidelines that his people must follow in order to avoid chastisement. It is arguable, however, that these guidelines are largely arbitrary, and that this supposed omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresence is merely a temperamental puppeteer throughout the earliest durations of his reign....   [tags: Religion] 1241 words

The Vietnam War would be the event that dominated Lyndon Johnson's presidency and dictated his public view at the time and his place in American history.

That purpose is to arrive at a utopian society, where everyone is happy, disease is nonexistent, and strife, anger, or sadness is unheard of. Only happiness exists. But when confronted with Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, we come to realize that this is not, in fact, what the human soul really craves. In fact, Utopian societies are much worse than those of today.
