Since early history, people have recounted their dreams believing they were secret codes or messages. (Young) In Truman Capote’s novel In Cold Blood Perry, one of the killers, dreamed that he was saved by a bird that took him to a new place described as “paradise.” (Capote 93) Though the dreams made Perry feel superior, the meaning of his dream is fascinating but still a mystery....   [tags: Dreams, Sleep Cycle]

Fourfold Interpretation

- One passage that holds a significant literal meaning and a number of less obvious meanings is the story of Jesus walking on water. Matthew 14: 24-31 reads, “ And in the fourth watch of the night he came to them, waling on the sea. But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, saying, ‘it is a ghost!’ And they cried out for fear. But immediately he spoke to them, saying, ‘Take heart, it is I; have no fear.’ And Peter answered him, ‘Lord, if it is you, bid me come to you on the water.’ He said, ‘Come.’ So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus; but when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, ‘Lord, save me....   [tags: Passages from the Bible]

The Objectivity of Judicial Decision-Making and Interpretation

- ... American Legal Realism goes even further to say that judges’ decisions are influenced buy many factors other than the objective use of the law, such as emotions and prejudices, and other psychological factors experienced by the judge himself which shows us that the law is not the basis of what judges interpret and make their decisions and thus subjectivity is apparent to a great extent. In this sense, judges are required or permitted to act completely subjectively.

Importance of a Reader´s Interpretation of a Text

- Roland Barthes’ essay titled ‘Death of the Author’ is a foundational text of contemporary reader-centred theory in which he argued that “it is language which speaks, not the author,” and that the multiplicity of a text’s “centres of culture” is focused on the reader (Barthes, 1977, pg. 143). Essentially, Barthes argued that attempts to recover or discover an author’s intended interpretation of a text are irrelevant and more so impossible to derive from the text alone; instead, the reader’s interpretation and the processes that lead to it are what matters from a critical, reader-centred perspective....   [tags: Film, Frozen]

Dostoevsky 's Novel, The Interpretation Of Dreams

This remark appears in Freud’s work named, “The Interpretation of Dreams”.

Interpretation of Laws

- Interpretation of Laws In law there are three different ways that the laws set can be interpreted. To show how they could be interpreted, three rules were set to go by, these being the literal rule, the golden rule and the mischief rule. The main dominant rule is the literal rule. This follows the law to the word doing exactly what the law says it to. An example of the literal rule is that it respects parliamentary sovereignty. A big disadvantage though is that by sticking to the original meaning this can sometimes lead to absurdities and unjust solutions for example Whitley v Chapell (1868)....   [tags: Papers]

Sigmund Freud's The Interpretation of Dreams

- Sigmund Freud's The Interpretation of Dreams Sigmund Freud’s The Interpretation of Dreams was originally published in 1900. The era was one of prudish Victorians. It was also the age of the continued Enlightenment. The New Formula of science, along with the legacy of Comte’s Positivism, had a firm hold on the burgeoning discipline of psychology. Freud was groomed as both scientist and Romantic, but his life’s work reflected conflict of the two backgrounds and a reaction against each one. It is my opinion that The Interpretation of Dreams was not simply written as a methodology of deconstructing dreams and assigning them meaning, but its latent content (as it were) was a critique of scien...   [tags: Papers]
