Advantages of Multidisciplinary Perspectives

- Multidisciplinary perspectives involve the application of techniques and theories drawn from various fields. This essay will examine the advantages of this outlook, particularly on the topics of the Cold War and climate change, in two folds. First, the micro and macro approaches adds to the interlinked complexity of the debate. Secondly, the incorporation of both qualitative and quantitative data, and evidence across multiple disciplines, improves the reliability of the conclusions drawn. These benefits also reduce some of the problems Professor Michael Cox observed in the application of social sciences, namely academic specialisation and empirism; group-thinking; and assumptions made by pol...   [tags: events, cold war, economy]

Common Themes in Secret Sharer, Heart of Darkness, and Shadow Line

- Common Themes in The Secret Sharer, Heart of Darkness, and The Shadow Line Joseph Conrad's stories The Secret Sharer, Heart of Darkness, and The Shadow Line share a number of themes. All three stories deal with a process of maturing that involves the loss of youthful illusions, a process usually precipitated by an actual "trial" that challenges the protagonist's professional skills as well as his assumptions about his identity and sanity. In successfully dealing with the crisis, the protagonist reconstructs his identity and develops moral ideas rooted in acknowledgement of his own and others' human weaknesses and thus of men's necessary interdependence....   [tags: Comparison Compare Contrast Essays]

Cultural Differentiation and Moral Orientation: Taking an Interest in History

- Cultural Differentiation and Moral Orientation In contrast with his major ethical works, Kant’s writings on history are replete with the theme of the social character of moral development and the interdependence of individual and community. I argue that historical-moral progress is an important part of Kant’s comprehensive ethical theory. However, in order to link the moral goals of humanity with the moral goals of individuals, judgement must have a dimension that can apprehend the purposiveness of those human achievements which are social in their significance and socially transmitted....   [tags: Philosophy History]

Can Regionalism Be a Principal for a Stable World Order?

- Regionalism appears, alongside globalisation, to be one of the forces shaping the world order of states today. It is credited with diminishing the power of traditional state sovereignty, especially evident in the example of the EU. Globalisation and nationalism are other forces which seem to be pulling apart the conventional role of states, but can regionalism to reconciled with these. Can regionalism be an intermediate community between the state and a potential global village. The apparent breakdown of the traditional role of the nation-state, if many ever really existed, gives the impression that world order is changing - regionalism and return to neo-medieval structure could provide an a...   [tags: Politics]

The Old Man And The Sea and Moby Dick

- The Old Man And The Sea and Moby Dick       One might say we are presented with two fish stories in looking at Ernest Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea and Herman Melville's Moby-Dick, a marlin in the former and a whale in the latter.  However, both of these animals are symbolic of the struggle their hunters face to find dignity and meaning in the face of a nihilistic universe in Hemingway and a fatalistic one in Melville.  While both men will be unable to conquer the forces of the universe against them, neither will either man be conquered by them because of their refusal to yield to these insurmountable forces.  However, Santiago gains a measure of peace and understanding about existe...   [tags: Moby Dick Essays]
