Masculinity, Femininity and Simone Benmussa’s Singular Life of Albert Nobbs

- Masculinity, Femininity and Simone Benmussa’s Singular Life of Albert Nobbs The semiotics of traditional theatrical form reinforce an oppressive patriarchal system. The physical body becomes the catalyst by which gender is assigned and expected. This emphasis on the body is amplified in the theater. Simone Benmussa’s play The Singular Life of Albert Nobbs, adapted from the short story by George Moore, deals with issues of femininity and masculinity and how these are portrayed within the theater as well as how theater is formed by the traditional patriarchal gaze....   [tags: Singular Life Albert Nobbs]

Establishing a Singular Standard of Justice

- Ambiguity is a natural part of life. Rarely is there ever a singular, definitive answer for anything. Justice is no exception. There is not one standard of justice: there are many. The standard can depend on history, on culture, on theology, or a variety of other factors. As different groups come together, though, having different standards of justice becomes a problem. The Oresteia, a three-part play by Aeschylus, and Death in Gaza, a film by James Miller, both showcase a struggle between two different standards of justice and the difficulty in reconciling such dissimilar ideals....   [tags: Necessity of Compromise]

Amnesia in Singular Case Studies and the Experiments Developed Thereof

- Memory storage in the human brain is one of the greatest mysteries of neuroscience. Knowing how and where the brain stores our memories is a much sought after piece of information. Computer scientists want to know so they can make better memory storage devices, philosophers want to know so they can better hypothesize whether or not the mind is separate from the brain, and neuroscientists want to know so they can eradicate, or at least alleviate, amnesia.

A Singular Self-Identity

- Self-identity is singular. The belief in this existence of one’s self, presupposes all our experiences of consciousness. We all hold that this identity is ours alone.

Analysis Of Matthew Arnold 's Poem ' Culture And Anarchy '

F to an A

- F to an A Have you ever received an essay back, got a big fat F on it, and the only reason you got an F was for subject-verb agreement. Do not worry because you are one of the many. If you eliminate these four mistakes that people normally make, then you are sure to get an A on that next essay. This confusion can be corrected with a few precautions. First, you should eliminate any prepositional phases. Look at the sentence and find the prepositional phases. For example, "The keys on the dashboard are mine." Then the sentence without the prepositional phrase, "The keys are mine."

An Evaluation of the Use of Inclusive Language in Bible Translation and God-talk.

- In order to do this I will consider how the debate surrounding inclusive language fits into the wider debate between egalitarians and complementarians; and explore the implication of its use or non-use for theology, accuracy of translation and mission. As noted above the debate surrounding gender-neutral language centres on two distinct issues, these being the use of feminine forms for deity and the replacing of masculine forms such as the `generic he, his, him and man' or `father, son and brother' with gender-neutral forms in both liturgy and the Biblical text....   [tags: World History]

The Search For Meaning in How to Tell a True War Story, and Into the Wild

- Life is a series of questions that people strive to answer through desperate endeavors to put some value and meaning behind their existence and purpose. However, it has been a mystery as to how to achieve those answers. A popular misleading belief is that the answers to life’s questions begin from answering the biggest question of them all “Who am I?” To discover the answer to this and all other questions, people use the assistance of others around them. Interacting and forming relationships with others allows one to not only to get to know those people, but also discover him/herself in that process....   [tags: Tim O'Brien, Jon Krakauer]

The Jewish Experience in Venice in the Age of the Ghetto

[…] Sometimes considered offensive. A part of a city where Jews were forced to live in the past ” ( LD 678 ). As a result, the first general definition appears connected with the more specific example of the Jews.

Humor is Derived from a Deviation For What is Considered Human

However, the definition of humour is just as problematic as that of comedy, as “no two people will always agree on what constitutes ‘successful’ humour.” Eric Weitz suggests that we “note the conditions generally present when someone does find something funny....   [tags: bergson's laughter, alan ayckbourn, comedy]
