Understanding Vs. Knowing in Atwood’s Oryx and Crake

- It is often simpler to settle for an understanding of the world and people around us instead of trying to know the truth. Truth has consequences; by knowing too much, one can lose a friend, learn a deadly secret, or become someone they do not want to be. To express his understanding of himself and the world around him, Crake in Oryx and Crake uses quote-bearing fridge magnets. One very important quote is “We understand more than we know”. It is important to recognize the difference between the terms "understand" and "know"; the Oxford English Dictionary defines "to understand" as to perceive the significance, explanation, or cause of, whereas "to know" is to be absolutely certain or sure abo...   [tags: Literary Analysis ]

Knowing Otherworldly Goodness Through Worldly Evils

- Humans come to understand experiences through the basic functions of the mind. The word "experience" refers not only to personal involvement in certain events, but also to anything that can be detected through the senses, ie: people, inanimate objects, and feelings. The ability to define, categorize, extend knowledge onto other things, and compare are the most fundamental functions. Without these functions, we could not gather knowledge from our experiences, nor could we arrive at any conclusions about their significance....   [tags: Theology]

Shakespeare's As You Like It - The Many Flavors of Love

- As You Like It:   The Many Flavors of Love         As You Like It is remarkable among Shakespeare's plays for ending with four marriages, something of a record even among comedies. Love is a central theme of the play, although in some of its variations it cannot quite be said to be romantic. The love relationships may, at first glance, appear to be stock types: Rosalind and Orlando representing romantic hero-heroine love, Silvius and Phebe combining love in the lower classes with unrequited love, Audrey and Touchstone a darker attempt to seduce, and Celia and Oliver simple tying up of loose ends....   [tags: Shakespeare As You Like It Essays]

William Shakespeare 's As You Like It

- Shakespeare has incorporated several important themes in “As You Like It”, some of which are gender disguise and homoerotism. The play revolves around some acts of deception, for example Rosalind and Celia disguising themselves as Ganymede and Aliena. Rosalind’s disguise remains more debatable because she dresses herself as a country man, Ganymede, while Celia maintains her sexual identity. By inventing new appearances, however, Rosalind and Celia sort of inspire their lovers. Orlando reveals to Ganymede about his extreme love for Rosalind which he couldn’t have if he knew that he was talking to Rosalind and not Ganymede....   [tags: Love, Romance, As You Like It, Romance]
