The American Dream Holds The Realm Of Individual Preference

Expectations are tamed, quiet and sometimes despondent reflections of aspirations, as the two rarely coincide. The American dream holds the two are one and the same, but as MacLeod points out in this excerpt, this is woefully untrue for at least the lowest part of the social strata; I would add it 's not possible for m...   [tags: Education, High school, Higher education]

Black Bodies : The Realm Of Surveillance

- Introduction In what is to follow I will be exploring the ways in which Black bodies become visibly invisible in the realm of surveillance. To do so, I will consider three main ideas. First, Black bodies that are attempting to travel are read as suspicious and potentially dangerous in the security theater of airports and are thus determined to be more deserving of scrutiny than White bodies. An example of how this is acted out is the process of targeting Black peoples’ hair for searches. Next, Black bodies, more specifically Black female bodies, perform the role of Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents which is emblematic of state power, but is contradictory to how Black people...   [tags: Black people, White people, Race]

The Myth Of The Cave

- The myth of the Cave, found in the seventh book of Plato’s Republic, depicts a group of people chained in the pit of a cavern, unable to see anything but the shadows of people, and the objects they carry with them, traveling past a fire behind them (186-7).

It also functions as a segue into the related discussion of educational theory. Additionally, though less apparent, the analogy can also be read as a defense of philosophy, an important topic for Plato in light of his teacher’s infamous death, “the founding myth of the academic discipline of philo...   [tags: Plato, Philosophy, Epistemology, Logic]
