A Jungian Analysis of How Like a God

- A Jungian Analysis of How Like a God Isaac Asimov was certainly correct when he stated that the writer of a story doesn't necessarily know everything about it. The author, Brenda W. Clough, claims not to have had an acquaintance with Carl Jung's work when writing How Like a God. However, the architecture of the book is strikingly Jungian. In the beginning of the novel, the main character, Rob has very little interest in his appearance. Many computer people are like that, and he has his devoted wife Julianne to make all the sartorial decisions for him....   [tags: How Like a God Essays]

"The Latest Decalogue" by Arthur Hugh Clough

- In the mid-nineteenth century, Arthur Hugh Clough wrote a poem entitle “The Latest Decalogue” in which he criticises the Victorians, specifically the contrast between the impression they gave of themselves, and their true morality. He uses form, language and tone in various ways to express this idea about the Victorian period, and makes his stance on the matter clear. The poem's subject matter is hinted at very early on, in the title itself; “The Latest Decalogue” is a very fitting title for the poem, as it hints at the fact that the poem is a Victorian take on the ten commandments, taking into account new social ideals....   [tags: Critical Appreciation]

Is There A God?

- Essay #1: IS there a God. “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6) I believe that with this verse is where the first of many reasons to follow for those who “cry foul about the existence of God begins”. Hebrews 11:6 states that someone has to have faith in God in order to please him or believe in him. Without first having faith in someone or something, it’s difficult to even allow one’s self to believe in anything....   [tags: Reality, Existence, Atheism, Existence of God]

What Is It Like Playing God?

- What Is It Like Playing God. Everyday hundreds of pets across the world are euthanized because they have an illness or severe injury. This is hard on a family, but it is morally accepted. If a human has a terminal disease or an untreatable injury, why is it frowned upon when we suggest the same relief as we do for our animal friends.

Like Water For Chocolate by Laura Esquivel

- Like Water for Chocolate—a novel rich in history, culture, food, and scandal; a breathtaking portrayal of a love affair, of the strength of character of desperate women, and of humbling traditions—captivates both the soul and mind, enchanting its readers by way of causing them to become immersed in its story-line. Prominent among its themes is that of finding an identity—or a lack thereof—which seems to pervade the lives of those most engaged in the process of self evaluation and discovery, and as such Laura Esquivel’s novel is comparable to Haruki Murakami’s The Elephant Vanishes, in which the characters from several stories seem to be in a state of perpetual dislocation and disconnection f...   [tags: Like Water For Chocolate]

- The story “Hills Like White Elephants” is about a couple who discuss an abortion. The American in the story addresses it as a “simple operation,” (487) while Jig seems to feel it is the wrong choice. I feel the man is encouraging her to have the abortion done in his own selfish way. I feel the American is being very selfish and thinking what a simple operation it would be.

- In this paper, I will explain how Descartes uses the existence of himself to prove the existence of God. The “idea of God is in my mind” is based on “I think, therefore I am”, so there is a question arises: “do I derive my existence. Why, from myself, or from my parents, or from whatever other things there are that are less perfect than God. For nothing more perfect than God, or even as perfect as God, can be thought or imagined.” (Descartes 32, 48) Descartes investigates his reasons to show that he, his parents and other causes cannot cause the existence of himself....   [tags: descartes, god's existence, idea of god]
