    In a world that is steeped primarily in visual perception, auditory phenomena face an ongoing struggle for importance. The significance of sound, typically taken for granted, is underappreciated. This lack of appreciation of auditory phenomena has resulted in an overreliance on visual imagery and experience. Sartre’s look of the Other, Heidegger’s vision of Being, and the Appolonian visual world are just some of the examples of philosophy’s visually focused concepts. Focusing solely on sight during

    Identity, Perception, Action and Choice in Contemporary and Traditional "No-Self" Theories ABSTRACT: The ego is traditionally held to be synonymous with individual identity and autonomy, while the mind is widely held to be a necessary basis of cognition and volition, with responsibility following accordingly. However Buddhist epistemology, existential phenomenology and poststructuralism all hold the notion of an independent, subsisting, self-identical subject to be an illusion. This not only raises

    I never read, “Where The Wild Things Are”, by Maurice Sendak, before this assignment. Mr. Sendak’s descriptive writing and remarkable illustrations make me a huge fan. Particularly, Max’s rambunctiousness and creativity reminds me of my six brothers when they were younger. “Where The Wild Things Are’’ was printed in 1963, and was considered too scary for young children. In contrast, I think “Where The Wild Things Are”, is a wonderful book for children. To point out, the book won the Caldecott Medal

    Subtle Differences Make Where The Wild Things Are a Classic When one thinks of a children's picture book, one usually thinks of bright colors and a story that involves a princess and a prince charming. One of the most classic children's books, Maurice Sendak's Where The Wild Things Are, however, neither uses bright colors nor a traditional love story. Instead the readers meet a young boy, Max, who, when sent to his room without dinner, imagines a far off land. We meet his friends, "the wild things"

    and round, the code of line and capillarity, and the code of colour. Each code speaks of a different aspect of the image and how it relates to psychology behind the implied meaning. These methods come together in Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. Each page is filled with evidence supporting William Moebius' theories and suggestions. In the code of position, size and diminishing returns, William Moebius talks about how the position of the character on the page relates to how the illustrator

    1. This week we read about Picture books and we were assigned to read The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrice Potter and Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. I really enjoyed reading these children’s books because I do not remember reading The Tale of Peter Rabbit, but reading it now I really got to appreciate the story, enjoy the illustrations and the story. I vaguely remember reading Where The Wild Things Are, so I am glad that I was able to reread it because I think that it is a very cute

    in supporting the development of her child psychological. In the Maurice Sendak's book Where the Wild Things Are, the relationship between Max and his mother did not have any depth, as I noted. The core of the motherhood in the story is absent as much as the absence of Max's mother. We never get a glance of the mother and this has a deep meaning, from my perspective. A big question here, WHY?! I prefer here that Sendak wants to show the absence of the mother from Max's real life, too. Even

    In Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are, the moon is an object that is depicted in many images that might often be overlooked. The readers of this story will often pay attention to the main action taking place in this story without noticing the significance that moon may represent about Max’s behavior, or rather, misbehavior and his encounter with the Wild Things. In common folklore, the presence of a full moon is known for being the cause of a man becoming a werewolf, or in other words, bringing
