Critique of The Final End of The Wicked by Edward Fudge

- Critique of The Final End of The Wicked by Edward Fudge The Final End of The Wicked written by Edward Fudge tries to give us the contrasting side of the argument between the wicked’s final destruction and the never-ending conscious torture. The author talks about the ever feared eternal punishment that is bequeathed with the wicked. He presents his article with a very simple understanding to the readers which position he is supporting. He restates his opinion which says the idea of unending torture is merely an irreligious view based on assumption and not in scripture....   [tags: Article Critique]

A Critique of M.Stack and D.Kelly's Popular Media, Education, and Resistance

- A Critique of M.Stack and D.Kelly's Popular Media, Education, and Resistance I found this article very interesting and relevant to me as a future educator. It brings to light the importance of media education and awareness, since it plays such a large role in our society. It states in the article that many young children watch about 14 hours a day of television in a week, that is a huge amount of exposure for such an impressionable age group.

Nietzsche's Critique of Religion

- Nietzsche's critique of religion is largely based on his critique of Christianity. Nietzsche says that in modern Europe, people are atheistic, even though they don't realise it. People who say they are religious aren't really and those who say they have moved on haven't actually moved on. Certain people in society retain features of Christianity. For example, socialists still believe in equality in all people. Others still have pity for the poor and needy etc. Nietzsche dislikes religion especially Christianity because it encourages and promotes slave morality....   [tags: Nietzsche's Critique of Christianity]

- 1. Marx’s work, for the unfamiliar, has been usually reduced to The Communist Manifesto and/or to some abridged versions of Capital. This, of course, makes impossible a serious analysis of his work. A great deal of Marx’s contribution is not only outside his most popular books, but in the evolution of his though, in his intellectual path, in the dialog between his ideas. In paying attention to that, we are giving Marx his real importance.

Finding the sublime in the beautiful is what I call philosophical beauty. I then consider some aspects of Aristotle's analysis of tragedy in the Poetics, specifically his identification of the key elements of tragedy as those involving the experience of fear and pity, which leads to a catharsis of these emotions....   [tags: Kant Third Critique Aristotle Poetics Essays]

Culture of Critique

- Americans have embraced debate since before we were a country. The idea that we would provide reasoned support for any position that we took is what made us different from the English king. Our love of debate came from the old country, and embedded itself in our culture as a defining value. Thus, it should not come as a surprise that the affinity for debate is still strong, and finds itself as a regular feature of the mainstream media. However, if Deborah Tannen of the New York Times is correct, our understanding of what it means to argue may be very different from what it once was; a “culture of critique” has developed within our media, and it relies on the exclusive opposition of two confl...   [tags: American Culture]

Religious Terrorism Is Not Unworthy Of Critique

From this, it has resulted in the popular belief that religion is the root of all terrorism (Gunning and Jackson 2011), and seemingly it is believed that religion is connected to violence virtually anywhere (Juergensmeyer 2003).

Marx 's Critique Of Religion

- Is Marx’s critique of religion for the most part correct, partially correct, or too simplistic (black and white) to be right. In my opinion Marx 's investigation into the realm of religion is for the most part correct, but his views do imply very black and white reasoning; he said all feedback starts with the feedback of religion. The portrayal of religion as the heart of a cutthroat world in this way turns into an investigation not of religion essentially but rather of the world as it exists. What this shows is that his thought of religion, governmental issues, financial aspects and society in general was not just a philosophical activity, but rather a dynamic endeavor to change the world,...   [tags: Karl Marx, Marxism, Philosophy, Religion]

At a time when philosophy seemed stagnant, and when much of the world turned to science for life’s big questions, a revolution needed to occur within philosophy to keep the practice relevant. For philosophy, this revolution came at the turn of the 20th century when British Idealism governed philosophic studies. Known today as analytic philosophy, this practice and its major contributors challenged the thinking of classical British empiricists and developed a new wave of philosophy focusing on logic and the structure of language....   [tags: copernicus, bertrand russell, symbolic logic]
