Wisdom of Socrates

- Socrates was a man that was in search of the truth about wisdom. However, it became more than just a simple search, rather it tuned into a complex assignment where the answer of true wisdom leads Socrates to be brought up on charges of corrupting society. As a philosopher Socrates is known to take every angle of an argument and to never put belief into one idea. Therefore Socrates was known to perplex even simple ideas and to frustrate his opponent.

Oedipus

- In Sophocle’s play Oedipus Rex, how does one judge Oedipus. Should he be held accountable for killing his father and marrying his mother. To me Oedipus is a man of great personal folly. He may have been fated to commit the crimes but he also allowed them to happen though his actions. I believe that he is at least partly guilty of the aforementioned crimes. He allows and also hastens his fate through his uncontrolled anger, his blind refusal of facts, and his fear of the unknown. Oedipus is controlled if not consumed by anger when he takes the lives of his father and his entire traveling party....   [tags: Character Analysis]

Protocol Padding Techniques

- In this type of attacks when a CBC-encryption is used the plain text is easily recovered. As discussed above the best practice would be using ENCRYPT-THEN-MAC. In the TLS protocol padding technique is added to make the block the size multiple of cipher text. After this the block is finally encrypted with a CBC mode. In the decryption process the cipher text is taken and XOR’d with the cipher text block of the previous one and compared with that of the existing MAC [5]. Here a “Padding Oracle Attack” can be made as the padding is not secured by the MAC because in TLS protocol the padding is done after the tag is produced....   [tags: CBC encryption, TLS and DTLS]

- It seems as if Bernard Knox is inside Sophocles mind when he states that tragedy deals with, “the problem of man’s true stature, his proper place in the universe” because in Oedipus the King Oedipus is unable to control the situations he is put in but is accountable for his crimes. Fate plays a major role in the tragedy because Oedipus does not have control over the statements of the Oracle, even if he believes otherwise.

Because the Oracles’ responses were always ambiguous, the answers could never be wrong.

Oedipus the King

- By definition a tragedy satisfies the moral sense, it brings forth pity or fear and it tells a story of misfortune by reversal of situation, all of which are fulfilled by Sophocles' Oedipus the King. This being said, I will argue that this play is actually a tragedy of fate: "its tragic effect depends on the conflict between the all-powerful will of the gods and the vain efforts of human beings threatened with disaster." In tracing the events throughout Sophocles' play it becomes evident that the will of the gods wins out, causing the collapse of Oedipus, his land and the people of Thebes....   [tags: Oedipus Rex, Sophocles]
