Book the Third, Chapter 5, 'Found' - ... “What did you let her bring you for. Couldn’t you knock her cap off, or her tooth out, or scratch her, or do something or other to her?” (p.233). This was Mr. Bounderby’s reaction to his mother, referring to Mrs. Sparsit. This has a comical sense to it. To make such a suggestion to a lower class for them to do such a thing to a higher class person, would have got them in trouble. In terms to language, ‘What’ is a little hard to read, it would now read ‘why’. At the beginning at this chapter, Rachael and Sissy wonder whether or not Stephen Blackpool would be seen again....   [tags: Book the Third] 1288 words

The Issues Facing the Third Wave Feminism Movement - As Third Wave feminism is currently unfolding before us, and its aims encompass a wide array of complex issues, it is often hard to describe what Third Wave feminism is. The feminist theories, mainly associated with First and Second Wave feminism attempt to describe the power imbalances that are found in society, and while doing so expose other oppressions, such as discrimination based on race or sexual orientation. As this essay attempts to place a clear definition to Third Wave feminism, feminists are concurrently trying to deconstruct old definitions and open it up for women to determine what feminism means to them....   [tags: third wave feminism, feminism,] 2108 words

The Third Bank of the River - The Third Bank of the River Beginning shortly before the turn of the last century, there was a noticeable trend towards the ambiguous in modern Brazilian literature. Writers such as Machado de Assis and Jorge Amado have both explored the use of the unstated and the forced compromise between extremes that have grown to be so crucial to the modernist movement. No Brazilian author, however, has mastered the compromise quite like João Guimarães Rosa, a man who was once described as not only leading, but preceding the reader "to a place where there is discord and cacophony under which there is a strange harmony…the third bank of the river…the land every soul craves for." In his collection of short stories, Primeiras Estórias (1962), Rosa pays particularly close attention to ambiguity as a main theme in Brazilian backland writing....   [tags: Third Bank River Essays] 4318 words

St. Thomas Aquinas' Third Way Modalized - Aquinas' Third Way Modalized ABSTRACT: The Third Way is the most interesting and insightful of Aquinas' five arguments for the existence of God, even though it is invalid and has some false premises. With the help of a somewhat weak modal logic, however, the Third Way can be transformed into a argument which is certainly valid and plausibly sound. Much of what Aquinas asserted in the Third Way is possibly true even if it is not actually true. Instead of assuming, for example, that things which are contingent fail to exist at some time, we need only assume that contingent things possibly fail to exist at some time....   [tags: Aquinas Third Day Philosophy Papers]
