A further theory with relevance when comparing the two definitions regarding approaches to self-esteem is the previously mentioned humanistic approach favoured by Maslow. This is a more person-centered method of assessment and counselling. This suggests the individual is in control of the self and encourages them to see things in a grounded and accepting
I felt that Nietzsche depicted a one-sided image of slave morality, instead of finding the good qualities within and there are plenty. And the whole concept of noble morality seems too good to be true. I believe that people who adopt noble morality will have a difficult time “doing as they please” in today’s society because there are consequences for certain actions.
Her mother did not want anything to do with the shame of having a daughter pregnant out of wedlock and in high-school. In her mother’s eyes, having this baby would ruin my cousin’s future. My cousin had very little say in the matter. Thinking she was doing what was best, my cousin’s mother drove her to an abortion clinic out of state and the baby was aborted. Never did she consider the psychological trauma this would inflict on her daughter.
It was interesting to find that self-esteem is based on self worth, how valuable the person is, how to do they feel about themselves and where they stand? This is an interesting topic since it can determine how well a person can control their emotions, how can their surroundings be affected, especially people, by the way the person feels.

Someone who believes in virtue ethics believes that certain virtues are necessary to have a good life and be a good person. They strive to either learn or better use the virtues that they have or are trying to develop. For example, stated in the text is “Virtue ethicist...agree with Aristotle that the cultivation of virtues is not merely a moral requirement-- it is a way (some would say the only way) to ensure human flourishing and the good life” (137). That statement brings me to my next point as to why Virtue ethics is more convincing than the other systems of

I had to, though. There was no way around it. There was no where else to go.” In the 1970s, Massachusetts didn’t have half the teen pregnancy clinics they have now.
Freud theory is human behavior was out right egotistical and belligerent but on the other hand Hobbes theory point out that humans is merely like a natural device which is motivated by self desires. Freud and Hobbes theories were somewhat in agreement with each other because they both felt that human nature was based more on the cares of self whether than the cares of others. Plato theory about human behavior is different from Freud’s and Hobbes’s because Plato thought that human behavior involves three elements which was reason, appetite and aggression (Velasquez, 2010). Aristotle believed that human nature was the product of prearranged reasons. Plato and Aristotle suggested that the most important part of human nature is reason because it takes precedent over the yearnings and assertiveness of humans.
Freud and Nietzsche’s thoughts may be similar, but human nature constantly changes. Freud is more aware, he examines into the past to find reasons that make life more civilized, however Nietzsche is more doubtful, he sees that humans should be led by a hero. Human nature as they both analysis is affected socially; it’s not a separable characteristic. It is knocked by achievements, failures, happiness, desire, pain, and pleasure and not followed as beliefs and traditions. Freud tends to show the inner struggle for the human in his analysis, but Nietzsche shows the outer struggle.
Critical theorists such as Karl Marx and Jürgen Habermas are critics of unequal social conditions specifically groups that are excluded from power or from free access to information. Thus, critical theorists do more than observe, interpret or describe; they criticize. Looking through the power structure research lens, this theory helped the researcher by asking who benefits from the unequal distribution of power and who are they taking advantage of by focusing on the community issue. In communication, critical scholars have focused on the role of communication in society and on the control of communication... ... middle of paper ... ...cal dimension” of his work (Dreyfus & Rabinow, 1982, p. 114). He claims that power and knowledge are not external to each other, but that they operate in a mutually generative fashion, as “nothing can exist as an element of knowledge if [...] it does not possess the effects of coercion” and as “nothing can function as a mechanism of power if it is not deployed according to procedures, instruments, means, and objectives which can be validated in more or less coherent systems of knowledge” (Foucault, 1997, p. 52).
However, by probing into what common themes affect the personality it can be assumed that the projected personality accurately represents what influences it. Because of this, self is the root of personality and shifts based on these themes. The concept of self is a dual layered projection of honest personality defined by ideal self
