Educational Philosophy - Educational Philosophy Throughout the years the topic of an American public education has been a very controversial subject. Since the time of the early Massachusetts Bay Colony, many have been divided on the role, if any, the government should play in educating America’s children. There has also been debate on the type of education American children, and teachers should have. Although, there has been tremendous progress in creating an “ideal public education”, there is still an ever-evolving need for change in America’s public educational system....   [tags: essays research papers] 706 words

Telecommuting - Telecommuting Telecommuting has positives and negatives psychologically. Some positives include staying home with children; more free time, and making your own schedule, etc. Some say that looks very inviting. Many people, employees and managers, don't look at the negatives (no set times, difficulty communicating, being looked upon as a slacker, no face to face contact and so on) before they volunteer for their chance at freedom.

Katherine of Aragon - Tragic Heroine of Henry VIII - Katherine of Aragon - Tragic Heroine of Henry VIII      Among the bevy of female characters to grace the Shakespearean stage, Katherine of Aragon in Henry VIII is perhaps the most enigmatic. Despite the range of possibilities in other female roles-such as Cordelia and Desdemona, in whom one certainly finds desirable traits-Katherine stands out as a tragic heroine: a secure, strong-willed woman who is articulate, passionate, charismatic, and altruistic. The unique qualities of Katherine are achieved through Shakespeare's careful accretion of rhetorical devices in her speeches....   [tags: Henry IV Henry V Essays]

The Meaning of Life - The Meaning of Life In approaching the meaning of life we have to examine the nature of meaning itself.  Meaning is by definition the point, or the intended goal.  Consider the point of humans and the universe as seen from monotheistic religion.  If life and the universe is some sort of toy or form of entertainment for some prime mover, his point, his own entertainment, would then be the meaning of humans and the universe.  Consider the goals of the deities of various cultures.  Some strive for a balance between the forces of 'good' and 'evil'.  This balance seems to simply be a choice of the deity, the way he thinks it ought to be.  The concept of a prime mover as a source of the meaning of life is flawed, because in talking about an actual point to absolutely everything, we are simply considering the goals of a being more powerful than ourselves who has chosen one of many possible goals that humans can conceive of.  This is to say that, if a god like this exists, his goal for life and the universe is not necessarily valid as a meaning of life, the universe, and himself.  For instance, the Bible claims that the Christian deity created the universe and placed humans in it that they might be in awe of his power.  If this is so, why is worship the correct response?  The meaning of the universe as created by God is the entertainment of God, but what is the meaning of the larger system containing God and his creations?  We could conceive of an even 'primer' mover, but that simply takes us all the way back into the wall of infinite regression....   [tags: Philosophy essays] 2125 words

Canterbury Tales Essay - Common Sense, Ethics, and Dogma in The Wife of Bath - Common Sense, Ethics, and Dogma in The Wife of Bath In his Canterbury Tales, Geoffrey Chaucer assembles a band of pilgrims who, at the behest of their host, engage in a story-telling contest along their route. The stories told along the way serve a number of purposes, among them to entertain, to instruct, and to enlighten. In addition to the intrinsic value of the tales taken individually, the tales in their telling reveal much about the tellers. The pitting of tales one against another provides a third level of complexity, revealing the interpersonal dynamics of the societal microcosm comprising the diverse group of pilgrims....   [tags: Wife of Bath Essays]

The Flawed Electoral College Voting Process - The Flawed Electoral College Voting Process When Americans vote their choice for President, one would assume that these votes would be tabulated and the majority vote would win. But this is not the case at all. The Presidency is ultimately decided by the Electoral College, what William McClenaghan calls “one of the least understood parts of the American political process”(340). McClenaghan also defines the Electoral College as “the body that makes the formal selection of the nation’s President, from what the Framers intended into a `rubber stamp’ for the popular vote in presidential elections”(67)....   [tags: Politics Political Essays]

Nietzsche considers nihilism as a nihilism of morality, not of metaphysics: it is morality and its history that has given rise to nihilism in the Occident. That is why Nietzsche separates himself from metaphysics as well as from morality and science, which differs from Heidegger's reasons....   [tags: Spanish Essays] 4093 words

En su primer modelo, Davidson había explicado la acción a partie de deseo y creencia, éstas no sólo racionalizaban sino que también causaban la acción; y acción e intención se identificaban. Sin embargo, Davidson repara posteriormente en que, por un lado, a veces el deseo y la creencia parecen tener como resultado la acción y, sin embargo, no se da entre ellos la relación causal 'adecuada,' por lo que no podemos decir de la acción que sea intencional....   [tags: Spanish Essays] 2867 words
