Atomic History

- Since the age of lore, the human mind has always reached out to find an explanation for all phenomena in which it was surrounded. A constant insight into nature and an awareness of being has always been necessary. Ever since then, the arms of the brain, starting off as fetal, reached out and set roots in atomic theory- all the way up until they became strong, vascular, and rigid with experimentation and specific classification of what life is based upon. Furthermore, the development of four elements called “roots”, from the Grecian philosopher Empedocles, became the basis for further experiments; thus leading to Post Socratic philosophies on the matter of matter and what it is composed of,...   [tags: Insight, Researchers, Experimentation]

Book 5 is the first book in The Odyssey where we are introduced to our hero, Odysseus, although we have already formed some opinions of him through the Telemachi. The opening scene of book 5 brings us to Mount Olympus, where the Gods are holding a meeting when Athene, Zeus’ daughter brings up Odysseus’ plight.

Kantian Peace Theory: Insight Ino the Future Relations Between the United States and China

- The rise of China as a global power is a troubling concept for many Americans. China's economy is one of the fastest growing in the world and China holds a plurality of the US national debt.

Kantian Peace Theory may offer an insight into the future relations between the United States and China.

Marx's Failure to Predict the Future but Its Useful Insight Into the Past

- Marx's Failure to Predict the Future but Its Useful Insight Into the Past Marxism was first coined by Karl Marx (1818-1883) and Frederich Engels (1820-1895). It’s both a theory and practice based on a scientific method of thought called historical dialectal materialism, meaning there is no one clear answer to a question, instead the theory is based on a certain amount of variables that are always restricted and so most of these theories are limited.
