A Feminist Reading of Galatea 2.2

This can be the result of socialization or some negative interactions with women in the past. Richard Powers employs this standard for female characters in his novel, Galatea 2.2, made evident through the application of the feminist approach and the dialogical method; however, its semi-autobiographical nature blurs t...   [tags: Feminism Feminist Women Criticism]

How Should Christians Handle The Mosaic Law?

- How should Christians handle the Mosaic law. This question has been asked from the beginnings of the early church. If you take a look at Galatians or Corinthians or other letters of Paul, this topic comes up more than once. If we look specifically at Galatians and Corinthians, we see Paul trying to pull two extremes of the issue to a moderate position. He tells the Galatians that living by the law means you will die under the law, and that the law had and never would save anyone. In 1 Corinthians, however, Paul reigns in a church that took this freedom to the extreme, proclaiming “everything is permissible”....   [tags: Christianity, Holy Spirit, New Testament, God]

The Galatians And The Polemical Epistle

- The polemical Epistle to the Galatians has some of the most explosive and harsh rhetoric in all Pauline epistles. Paul’s writing clearly indicates that he is troubled by the situation in Galatia. Along with the other Pauline epistles, with the possible exception of Romans (Goodacre, 2016b), Paul’s Letter to the Galatians is occasional. That is, Paul is responding to specific problems within the Galatian community (Goodacre, 2016a). The actual occasion of Galatians is as follows: Paul is writing to dissuade Gentile Galatian Christians from adopting another gospel that calls for male circumcision and adherence to Jewish Law (New Revised Standard Version, Galatians....   [tags: New Testament, Paul of Tarsus, Pauline epistles]

The Duality of Truth in Don Quixote by Miguel Cervantes

- "Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth." -- Marcus Aurelius Don Quixote is considered as the first modern novel and one of the most important modernist elements available in the novel is the exploration of characters’ inner worlds, especially of Don Quixote’s. Through inner exploration of the main character, the readers observe that the real and the illusionary are interoperable within Don Quixote’s perceptions of the outside world. In that sense, a post-modern concept which suggests that truth is multifaceted and it’s a creation of mind emerges in the novel....   [tags: Don Quixote Essays]
