Victorian Thinkers: The Victorian Sage

- Matthew Arnold, Thomas Carlyle, John Ruskin and William Thackeray are among the Victorian thinkers to earn the title of “sage.” To some degree, the Victorian sages were respected and enjoyed by people from all social classes.

It is a difficult task to describe them as a group because they were each so unique in their style and beliefs....   [tags: European Europe History]

Odera Oruka, founder of the ‘sage philosophy’ school of research based at the University of Nairobi, there is a need to look at some now-problematic issues. I suggest that the original impetus for starting the sage philosophy project-the defense against Euro-American skeptics who thought Africans incapable of philosophizing-has been outgrown. The present need for studies of African sages is to benefit from their wisdom, both in Africa and around the world....   [tags: Philosophical Africa Essays]

The Sage

- Throughout history, there have always been stories. From the myths of ancient civilizations long since past to today’s epic blockbuster movies, civilizations have used stories not only as entertainment, but as a way to convey ideas, or to pass down oral history through the generations. However, over time, as we look through these myths, books, movies, and other mediums, we find a common similarity in many of them. We find repeated patterns of situations, characters, and other parts. The patterns have been classified as “archetypes.” For instance, one of the archetypes we often see in myths, books, and movies is the “outcast.” The outcast is one who has been exiled from his home to wander t...   [tags: essays research papers]
