The Mind Of The Beholder

- This I Believe As it was once spoken by American psychologist and philosopher William James, “Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact” (“Believe that life”); these immortal words speak the hidden meanings behind life. Life is in the mind of the beholder, this is a proven fact, time and time again controlling the base of our thoughts and actions, for better or worse. As James so eloquently put, a person’s view of the world creates them; if they see a world of evil, a world where war and crime run rampant, they will become a miser, someone who dreads life and the people around them....   [tags: Mind, Thought, Middle school, Psychology]

- There is countless number of harmful elements in the environment surrounding humans. Many are concrete things such as poisons, bacteria, and viruses.

Analysis Of Tolkien 's ' The Beholder '

- The nature of evil lies in its ability to enchant the beholder by veiling its true intentions, and using mankind’s greeds, desires and passions to corrupt the most pure of heart. Tolkien uses contrasts of light and dark, and good and evil to show the nature of evil in Middle-Earth. Before Gollum finds the ring we can see how easily the ring was able to corrupt him, because he stops looking to the light/good, and instead his gaze focuses on looking downward into the dark as he becomes more corruptible (51-52)....   [tags: The Lord of the Rings, Sauron, Frodo Baggins]

A painting that is considered to be the most influential development in modern visual narrative and what is considered innovative in art” (Naumann, 2013). “Marcel Duchamp rejected “retinal art” meaning attractive to the eye.

Perspective on Group Project for Mont Blanc

- The Genesis of "Reading Mont Blanc" The project entitled "Reading Mont Blanc" began as a faint wisp of an idea while my group and I were browsing the hypertext in search of other topics. Happening upon the wonderful maps and illustrations of Wordsworth's travels through France and Switzerland, one member remarked that perhaps we could make use of these in some manner. Then, as the various images of Mont Blanc passed before our eyes -- some picturesque and others clearly sublime -- we wondered if these could not somehow frame an exploration of how nature was conceived and presented by the various travel writers, 'grand tourists', and (of course) poets of the Romantic era....   [tags: group project mont blanc]
