The Reality Of The Future

- ... However, bivalence still applies in regards to the present and the past. Once the future becomes the present and subsequently the past, it is set, even if no one remembers it. Augustine claims that a long past is merely “a long memory of the past” (ch. 28, section 37). I don’t think that’s true because memories can be faulty, whether it’s individual recollection or collective human memories passed down through generations. In addition, Augustine’s theory doesn’t account for human discoveries about the past....   [tags: Time, Future, Present, Past]

Satire and Tone in "The Once and Future King"

- There is a direct link in Book I and Book IV of the Once and Future King from the animation and adventure that Wart experiences to the fall of King Arthur’s reign. The shift is long and detailed but in the end everything ties together. Although at points the plot is grim, White throws in a little bit of satire throughout every book, for example in Book II when the Orkney environment is harsh but then it is contradicted by the behavior of Sir Pellinore, Sir Grummore, and Sir Palomides. In Book III, it is very descriptive and tedious with a darker tone, but then also is offset by Lancelot’s adventures....   [tags: Once and Future King, White, ]
