Guilt and Shame in Some Thoughts Concerning Education and Robinson Crusoe

- Guilt and Shame in Some Thoughts Concerning Education and Robinson Crusoe               In Seventeenth and Eighteenth Century England, a major transition was occurring; attitudes were shifting towards a more sensibility-based perspective, in which the "warrior" mentality of earlier times was falling out of fashion, in favor of sensitive "gentlemen." Such gentlemen were expected to be morally sound, well-educated, "enlightened." Yet, despite all this, men were still expected to be masculine to be able to take control of a situation or solve a particular problem....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Why Some Make It and Some Don't in the Music Industry

- The basis of success in the music industry goes beyond the ability to make great music. Most people don’t wake up one day and say, “I think I’m going to be a successful musician today”. Those who have this seemingly random awakening experience still spend years getting to a stage of musical understanding and talent prior to launching their musical career. Even with years of formal or informal training and/or practice, talent is still not enough to be successful in the music industry. In fact, non-musicians have the potential for music industry success with increasing technological advances in the industry....   [tags: business analysis]

Students who cheat do so from a variety of motives. Making this situation even more difficult is that faculty members do not even define plagiarism the same or punish it consistently (Howard, “Sexuality” 473). Some surveys even show that teachers simply ignore the problem or do not report plagiarism because: “they do not want to be bothered, because they think only the student who cheated is actually harmed, or because of the unpleasant bureaucracy and documentation ramifications” (Moeck 484)....   [tags: Exploratory Essays Research Papers]
