Agatha Christie's The Cornish Mistery and Alfred Hitchcock's The Rear Window

- Genres are far from being nominological and typological in function , but rather requires constant modification and sometimes even subversion so as to reflect certain values and ideological concerns significant in the composers context. Based on the psycholinguistic concept of prototypicality , genres can be seen as ‘fuzzy’ categories embodying formulaic conventions readily identified by audiences. However, these categories are never static. In concurring with theorist Daniel Chandler, genres holistically “change over time; the conventions of each genre shift, new genres and sub genres emerge and others are discontinued.” Crime writing is one such genre that has observed continual modificati...   [tags: Thematic Elements, Writing Evolution]

The paradigm con- tains four basic categories of knowledge, (i) firmly established symbolic laws (e.g., f = ma), (ii) metaphysical world-views (e.g., that matter is composed of atoms), (iii) values (e.g., that theories should be consistent, plausible, and sim- ple), and (iv) methodological knowledge (often a tacit understanding of how to solve scientific problem...   [tags: Science Research]

Jesus Rose From The Grave On The Third Day

As Licona says, this is extremely crucial to the Gospel in every way. If Jesus didn’t really rise from the grave, it makes Jesus a false prophet and disproves Christianity; making our faith worthless (1 Corinthians 15). This would be disastrous for the world considering 32 percent of the world population profess to following Christ....   [tags: Jesus, New Testament, Critical thinking, Gospel]
