This paper argues that humans may have the capacity both to recognize the divine and to give objective descriptions through symbols and language which allow for the development of methodologies in order to access that knowledge at will. Many postmodern and feminist thinkers place knowledge into the domain of politics and power. Such insights allow for the deconstruction of social realities and for postulating democratic principles in accepting multicultural philosophies. The recognition of form, however, cannot substitute for content. The educative function of politics reveals important insights into the human condition and allows one, for example, to see postmodernity in the context of historical events, such as the resourceful relationship between reason and capitalism, the transition from living law to positive law (cf.
History for Hegel is a rational process that cannot be knowing a priori. The conflicts that occur in society allow for the universal mind to work out its own ideas (788) . His thought of progress is done by dialectical reasoning, where opposition occurs, but the conflict leads to a synthesis of both sides. The world for him is a history of rational development, the end goal is achieving the currently unknown world mind. This reasoning is to be done at the rational level and it is something that is to be found out rather than just assumed (828) .
It concludes that one may find on the contrary an interesting way of dealing with the necessarily individualistic nature of education as well for the educator as for the educandus. If education can be conceived as an answer from one individual person to another, particularity, care, integrity and trust are of the utmost importance, and so is what "being authentic" means. Of course, an agent cannot articulate a project concerning who she wants to be without a context of intersubjectivity. Such a project must constitute a particularly illuminating example of what can be done in a certain social predicament. Furthermore, authentic identity presupposes a moment of recognition on the part of another.
The purpose of this paper is to critically analyze the theory of Plato's Forms from his perspective and that of several others, including Aristotle. Topics The topics in which I will mainly focus on will be Forms as universals, Forms as separate entities (substances), Universe as two realities, and Forms as final causes. For the most part, the topics are interwoven together yet I will try to separate them in such a fashion as to provide sufficient arguments for each main topic. II. "In View of Plato's Theory of Forms" Topic #1: Forms as Universals "The essence of [Plato's] theory of Ideas (Forms) lay in the conscious recognition of the fact that there is a class of entities, for which the best name is probably "universal," that are entirely different from sensible things" (Allen 18).
The movement must be educational and democratic; it must encourage individual autonomy. It must freely confess ignorance and slowly develop ideas in a combination of broad propaganda and proper research. Philosophy can contribute by developing a comprehensive view of the situation. Academic research should attend to practical problems. Ideally, the movement will offer grassroots education that will enable graduates to compel appropriate institutions to enact legislation directed toward the alleviation of global problems.
Marx Regarding the aspects of explaining the shaping of self, it would be instrumental to posit that, Marx had developed a solid approach in the manner he explained the concept of shaping of self. Consider the fact that, Marx created his hypothesis of alienation to expose the human action that lies at the back of the ostensibly uncongenial forces dominating society. He demonstrated how, although characteristics of the community we live in emerge as normal and autonomous, they are the consequences of earlier period human activities. Therefore, examining the manner Marx postulates his argument; it is instrumental to aver that, the shaping of self is clandestinely anchored within the scope of establishing the concepts of living individually as Me and I 2. Basically, in order to provide a comprehensive explanation of the innate aspects of self shaping, he asserts that, we are communal actors who continuously construe the connotation and operate in relation to individual consideration of the situation.
What the revolutionary achievements of Descartes, Kant, and Fichte have generically in common is to account for the legitimacy of our knowledge claims or, in other words, for the possibility of autonomy. The business of that kind of philosophy is to rationally reconstruct the rightness of judging. For that design the architecture of those authors' theorizing is necessarily opposed to normal experience. (First of all, the common notion of "things affecting us" has to be abandoned.) Transcendental arguments are therefore all but common sense.
Doing so, it would enable private individuals to identify and discuss societal problems thus finding a way to influence political action. The idea of forming a public body was important to Habermas because it separated the state from the work place, and rejected hierarchy (Habermas 1974, p.49). It promised access to autonomy, inclusivity, and a place to discuss common concerns. Habermas believed that there is a connection between the public sphere and the ideals of a democratic society.

This present text aims to show how the Hegelian philosophy can contribute to the conceptual discussions between the two strains of the contemporary ethical-political philosophy. In our view, both the communitarians and the libertarians still need to pass through the Hegelian conceptual skeleton to bear the organized societies'ethical-political matters within the considered democratic standards. Hegel, although still holds the blemish of a Absolute State's thinker, not democratic, in his work, mainly in what refers to the "Philosophy of the Right", makes possibles the deepening of the investigations for authors like Rawls, who worries about questi... ... middle of paper ... ...nal).

Both writers discussing the idea of morality provide an essential opinion in the world. Their arguments not only teach people how to act, but how to treat one another throughout life. Morality allows people to be at their best, by forcing individuals to be accountable for their actions, and makes a person learn from their own mistakes. Through reading both these works, it is obvious that in order to have morality in the workplace, one must first have a strong personal moral ground. Morality is necessary in order to exceed in the professional world.
