- Sitting alone in a garden in Paris, surrounded by Rodin’s statues, I watch the world pass me by, as I have for hundreds of years. Just over the hedge, I can see the gold dome marking the place where Napoleon is buried. All sorts of people pass by, some marveling at my creator’s talent, others wondering why he represented the hands and feet so unnaturally large. It is easy to recognize the American tourists, in blue jeans, who gawk at nude statues, and the Britons, in slightly more formal clothes, gawking just the same....   [tags: essays research papers]

Orpheus and Eurydice

- I chose the story of Orpheus and Eurydice as the myth I will be analyzing. It is one of the earliest tales of a relationship ending tragically, and countless of modern stories have undoubtedly been inspired at least in part by it.

It begins with the musician Orpheus discovering his beloved Eurydice’s dead body in the grass....   [tags: greek, tales]

To what extent can I determine my own destiny

- ‘To what extent can I determine my own destiny?’ Discuss in the light of theories, ideas and research encountered in the course. Do I act as I do through choice or are my actions influenced by factors beyond our control. This uncertainty has concerned psychologists for decades, consequently giving rise to the 'Autonomy versus Determinism' debate. By definition, autonomy is the belief that we are free to make decisions and thus control all of our actions, however determinism contradicts this view by suggesting that all of our actions are entirely determined by the external and internal forces operating on them....   [tags: essays research papers]

The astronomer, eternally still, pulsed with life, pondering over his books. Within a foot of the painting I began to feel as though I was looking through a keyhole into his study....   [tags: Arts]
