The Moral Instinct By Steven Pinker

- In “The Moral Instinct”, Steven Pinker argues for a sixth sense that humans have that is morality. This sense, just like the other five, can be skewed and mislead by evolution and culture of humanity. If humans can remove these illusions, Pinker believes that a universal morality can be achieved. He believes that people are born with a basic knowledge of morality and eventually learn to apply moral reasoning. Pinker explains how secular and evolutionary psychology are corrosive to morality. Ultimately, He agrees with the theory that Anthropologists Richard Shweder and Alan Fiske propose of a universal morality that divides into five themes of harm, fairness, community, authority, and purity....   [tags: Morality, Religion, Mores]

The Storm by Kate Chopin

- The first thing I noticed about Kate Chopin’s “The Storm,” is that it is utterly dripping with sexual imagery and symbolism. Our heroine, if you will, seems to be a woman with normally restrained passions and a well-defined sense of propriety, who finds herself in a situation that tears down her restraint and reveals the vixen within. I wonder if it was intentional that the name Calixta makes me think of Calypso – the nymph from Greek mythology.
