Through much manipulation, Ahab is able to win over most of the crew. They feel his passion and need for revenge on the whale and fail to realize why they are really out at sea. His “magical” powers captivate Queequeg. He kisses his boots and proclaims “Me god, me god.” Flask and Stubb remain loyal throughout the voyage. They never stop to question Ahab, even when Starbuck confronts them and says it is their legal right to have a mutiny when the captain does not abide by the rules.
Although Brett is successful, her love for Pedro blinds her from seeing that he only seeks her beauty. Juxtaposing the blind bull metaphor and Pedro and Brett’s relationship, the reader can see that Pedro is manipulating the relationship. As the reader knows, Pedro is a matador, famous for making any bullfight a spectacle. One of his most daring ventures is his fight against a blind bull, forcing him to use his body as a way to catch the bulls attention. With his apt skills, he is able to control the fight, “rocking the bull to sleep,” (219).
Hassan yelled back, “For you, a thousand times over.” This quote illustrates that Hassan would run the kite for Amir over and over again which shows that he is very determined, committed, persistent, and obviously has a weak spot for Amir. With such a level of determination, Hassan’s loyalty is far beyond that of a slave. It is of such a rich and succulent devotion as if his dedication towards Amir is somewhat clouded. Another scene which exemplifies Hassan’s loyalty is, again, the rape. While being rape, Hassan did not struggle or tried to fight off Assef and his crew, but he rather resign to their wicked actions.
As part of the conditioning program, Alex is forced to watch films with his eyelids clamped open. His face is then wrapped in electrical straps and wires. He is forced to watch violent scenes and right after those scenes follow crimes that Alex committed with his gang of friends. In the rear of the theater, the doctors watch his reactions and record his behavior. These images of violence in the films induced nausea caused by the injections.
From an anthropological perspective, main difference is that a sorcerer uses magic while a witch does not, even though they both can be perceived as malevolent practices. In an effort to condense the topic, both can be perceived as similar. Early ritualized practices, cave paintings and other phenomena serves as evidence that witchcraft and sorcery has existed since the beginning of human civilization. Evidence found by archeologists suggests that such practices occurred about 40,000 years ago. Whenever a primitive society has questions about the origin of mankind, life, problems and fear of the unknown, they tend to view the supernatural as a means of answe... ... middle of paper ... ...ogy and medicine decrease the need for the “supernatural”, and therefore the presence of both are becoming exponentially less.
is the reconditioning of certain sensory reactions to unpleasant stimuli so that physiological symptoms such as ulcers and headaches will not be produced (Strong, 1895). Habitual reactions of the patient are altered under hypnosis. After the therapist has changed the patient’s anxiety-producing sensation system, the subject is trained in the use of the new responses in life outside therapy. This type of healing had existed long before modern medicine, but exactly what hypnosis is has yet to be explained. (Hilgard & Hilgard, 1983).
However, this vision is clearly exemplified in the papers of “thick description”, and “Balinese Cockfight”. He got recognition for most of his influential articles, and one of them is “Deep Play: Note on the Balinese Cockfight” (1972). Although illegal, cockfighting is very much popular and widespread in Bali, as they identify themselves with their cocks. Geertz stated that gambling in terms of financial matters is not the center point of this ritual, but rather than the prestige and status, for which people ensemble themselves with this ritual. He distinguished the terms “deep fights” and “shallow fights” not in the terms of money only but also as a gambling for prestige (Clifford Geertz 's "Thick Description",
What they do not understand is that the cock fight represents a fight between men. As anthropologist Clifford Geertz explains: “As much of America surfaces in a ball park, on a golf links, at a race track, or around a poker table, much of Bali surfaces in a cock ring. For it is only apparently cocks that are fighting there. Actually, it is men.” (Geertz, 2005) In other words, the cocks are (standing for)representing those Balinese men to fight, the one who win will receive recognition and attain prestige. From this point of view, seeing Balinese cock fighting in terms of their cultural code shows the dignity of Balinese men, thus we should respect their
