    The Essence of the Human Spirit My mother taught me the two most important lessons I have learned: you really can do anything if you work hard and dedicate yourself to it; and, every person has a responsibility to contribute something toward improving the world. She taught me by example. When I was eight, she went to college to fulfill her dream of becoming a teacher. Very few things in my life have been more inspirational than watching her, a poor woman with a husband and four children, graduate

In this section of the Investigations (and those around it, at times) Wittgenstein concerns himself with problems one faces in defining the ‘essence’ of a given sort of experience (in other contexts speaking also of the associated ‘process’ and ‘concept’) such as reading and ‘being guided’/‘guidedness’.

    The Essence of Tragedy in The Book of Job and Oedipus Rex In the search for the essence of the tragedy, The Book of Job and Oedipus Rex are central. Each new tragic protagonist is in some degree a lesser Job or Oedipus, and each new work owes an indispensable element to the Counselors and to the Greek idea of the chorus. The Book of Job, especially the Poet's treatment of the suffering and searching Job, is behind Shakespeare and Milton, Melville, Dostoevski, and Kafka. Its mark is on all

    Upon completion of Kafka's Metamorphosis I was immediately drawn away from the conclusion of the novel and back into the second section.  It seemed to me that the true essence of the novella resided in the thoughts and observations revealed in this portion of the story.  After watching the video adaptation I was once again intrigued by these events.  I re-read the second section and found the first strong impressions of the grotesque were evident here. Kafka used the constant setting of the Samsa

                         CSP 12 Prophetizing- Peaches and Cream All religions are very specific with the details which set that religion apart from others. However, when all the little details are melted away, there are only a mere handful that are different in essence. When looked at closely, even the religions which are perceived completely dissimilar at first glance are surprisingly similar. For example, the Voodoo religion, and that of early Christianity are stereotyped as extremely different, but with closer

    Language And Technological Language ABSTRACT: On July 18, 1962, Martin Heidegger delivered a lecture entitled Traditional Language and Technological Language in which he argues that the opposition between these two languages concerns our very essence. I examine the nature of this opposition by developing his argument within his particular context and in the general light of his reflections on language. In different sections on technology and language, I summarize much of what he had said in previous
