Theories and their Differences: Analysis of Robert Dahl’s Who Governs, and Robert Michels’ Political Parties

- It should be a fare assumption, that most social scientists have an intuitive notion of what constitutes ‘power’. Nonetheless, academia has been unable to formulate a single defining statement for the concept of power, rigorous enough to be used interchangeably when studying various political or social phenomenon. Worse yet, the more attempts are made to define power, the more complex the concept becomes. Although the conceptual definition of power is difficult to pinpoint, its pervasive applicability, and on-going importance to political theorists is certainly not lost, as countless academics define and apply the concept of power in order to add depth to their work....   [tags: Political Science, Philosophers]

The Ideal of a Man, the Ideal of a Woman of the Heian Court Based on the Tale of Genji

- Seen from descriptions in the most prominent literature works in Heian era, such as Ise Monotagari, Kagerō Nikki, Izumi Shikibu Nikki, Makura-no-Shōshi, and Genji Monogatari, gender roles during the period were implicitly or explicitly defined, and I assume, because of this climate, they were considered as major parts of the society, and vice versa. There are many characters appearing in Genji Monogatari. I think each of them is a representation of people whom Murasaki Shikibu had observed around her in her time, and that reviews of those characters are the key to a glimpse into ideal manliness and ideal femininity and manliness in the Heian era....   [tags: Gender Studies]

Video Games Vs. Federal Prison System

It didn’t stop me from gaming, because my parents couldn’t catch me button mashing my XBOX controller while they were at work, or on my TI-83 while at school, or playing 2048 in the bathroom. The issue was instead of telling me why I shouldn’t be playing, they went right to punishment.
