Values

- The importance of values can not be overstated, they shape our intrinsic motivation (Kollmuss, & Agyeman, 2002, p.251). The significance of looking at values allows us to see the inter-workings behind peoples actions. Too often society sees the natural environment as something available for our use, a set of resources to be consumed(Cohen, 2006, p.13). Our system of values causes great environmental destruction, only a change in the priority of our values will allow us to counter this trend. Our western values and American values in particular are very inward looking as a country and individually....   [tags: Ethics, Individualism]

Traditional Poetry

- Yvor Winters is a modern poet, but he is very much a traditionalist. His poems, written in the traditional form, are works of art. Poetry is a stimulating art that when properly mastered can exhume beautiful emotions from its readers. Proper forms, structure, grammar, rhyme scheme, all are elements of traditional poetry, and all, in my opinion, are elements of lovely poetry. I will argue that Yvor Winters poetic theory, The Fallacy of Expressive Form, written in 1939, arguing that poetry must be traditionally written can be tested using a Non Traditional song, Seven Nation Army by The White Stripe, and a Traditional poem, Incident by Countee Cullen; I will then explicate each poem to furthe...   [tags: poetry, symbolism, Yvor Winters]

Moral Values

- In this essay I will be looking at whether moral value is an objective property of an action, or more simply, are moral values universal and the same for everybody. If a moral value is objective this means that it is true for everybody, rather than it being subjective, meaning that it is likely that not everybody agrees on the value. I am going to focus on and evaluate the following three meta-ethical theories; naturalism, intuitionism and emotivism. Depending on which theory I decide is the best I will make a decision on whether I believe moral value is an objective property of an action or not, as the case may be....   [tags: emotivism, naturalism, intuitionism, ethics]

Characters and Values

- Characters tend to take to their values very strongly. A character will do anything possible to stand behind what they value. Authors use this to invoke a strong feeling in the reader, and make the plot more meaningful. By showing how strongly values affect the character, it causes one to question how strong and meaningful their own values are. A poem that does this is “1910”, by Pat Mora, and a oral history that is an example is “Tsali of the Cherokees”, by Alice Marriot. In “1910”, symbolism is used to represent the character’s values....   [tags: essays research papers]

Values in Pindar

- Values in Pindar Pindar was composing his poetry at the start of the fifth century B.C. at a similar time to Aeschylus, and as much as three centuries after the completion of Homer's works. The values he displays, however, do not seem to have developed since the time of Homer; Pindar's ethics are those of a shame-culture, and in this way thoroughly Homeric. They are aristocratic, favouring the strong, powerful ruler over the weak and dominated. Wealth and prosperity are praised, not frowned upon....   [tags: Papers]
