Alan Moore's Watchmen

- Alan Moore’s “Watchmen” focuses on several characters throughout the novel making the idea of a main character moot. However, one character can be described as the most influential to the plot of the graphic novel. Rorschach can be seen as such due to the fact that he narrates a large portion of the novel, and his heroic code that he follows. Not only does he influence the plot by those two reasons, but also by uniting the characters after a long silence.

E. Moore 's Argument On The Existence Of The External World

- G. E. Moore begins his paper by stating that many perfectly rigorous arguments can be given to prove the existence of the external world. Suppose that he raises one hand and says, “here is one hand”; and then raises the other and says, “here is another”. To Moore, this is rigorous proof of the proposition “there now exists two hands”. His proof that the external world exists, rests on the assumption that he does know that “here is a hand”. Perhaps he can make this assumption because there is no reason for thinking otherwise, thus the premise “here is a hand, and here is another hand”, though itself unproven, leads conclusively to: “therefore there exists an external world” (Moore 1993, pp....   [tags: Logic, Critical thinking, Epistemology, Evidence]

The authors cover the dark issues of rape, war, and violence in Watchmen’s world where the characters’ lives soon end in their own demise.
