John Dewey's Criticisms of Traditional Philosophy

- Dewey's Criticisms of Traditional Philosophy ABSTRACT: In this paper I address some of John Dewey’s more generally applicable criticisms of the philosophic "tradition," and show how his criticisms stem from his naturalistic approach to philosophy.

I believe the essence of Dewey’s criticism...   [tags: Philosophical Philosophy Essays]

Due to modern shifts in mores and the overall attitude toward relationships and commitment, the ideal of the extended family has become extinct. Now, same-sex marriage, live-in relationship, domestic partnership, adoption, single parent, and cohabitation are becoming commonplace: the traditional nuclear family of husband, wife, and children is no longer the norm....   [tags: family, identity, norm, values]

Constant Conflicts with the Upper and Lower Class in Literature

- For millennia, there have been constant conflicts between the upper class and the lower class, characterized by the upper class’s sense of superiority towards those less economically prosperous. Mansfield, Gordimer, and Orwell describe these conflicts between the upper and lower classes to propose that completely transcending class prejudices is impossible and suggest that societal values have greater impact than individual values as they degrade both a person’s behavior and morality. Inherent prejudices, values, and ways of thinking are strong because they are instilled during one’s childhood and therefore unavoidable for the rest of one’s life....   [tags: prejudices, values, mansfield, gordimer, orwell]

The Eve of St. Agnes: A Reworking of the Spenserian Sonnet

- “The Eve of St. Agnes”: A Reworking of the Spenserian Sonnet As the values of the 18th century shifted from formal perfection to experimentation, so did the poetry. The writings of the 19th century romantic poets explored new forms and variations of the sonnet; they moved away from the heroic couplet, which was dominant during the preceding century by writers like Pope. John Keats utilized this romantic method habitually throughout his works. In his 1819 poem “The Eve of St. Agnes”, Keats refashioned the traditional Spenserian allegory to explore sinful qualities, and personal virtues such as lust, whereas Edmund Spencer’s customary sonnet form usually expressed chivalric and Christian val...   [tags: john keats, christian values, poets]
