On the contrary, through coordinating the AIDS Project at the Rothchild Center this year, and through creating the Empowerment Program for homeless people last year, I have found that no distinction exists between helping others

    causes the wealthy citizen or phyle to take for granted what they have so well. Such things include the best education, the nicest material possessions, inheritance, and even responsibility. However, what if that same technology that made the privileged, the privileged, was given to the masses, rich or poor, with the tools and talents to implement such technology? In a sense, making that same power that the upper class took for granted a great equalizer for society to play around with. This is w...

    children, but must be good husbands and fathers if they do, for humanity to progress as a whole. Rabbit “dislikes manipulation” and views these inherent facts about life as societal constrictions which deny him his freedom (17). His position as a privileged male allows him to feel “the world owes him what he wants” and thus is not compelled to provide for his family (153). For Rabbit, life feels like a “series of grotesque poses assumed to no purpose”(198). He justify’s leaving his family because it

Thus this word original coined by the Greeks means rule of people as a whole and not by an individual or a privileged soul. It is a concept still misunderstood and misused in some parts of the world where totalitarian regimes and dictatorships have witnessed popular support by usurping democratic labels like in Iraq and Pakistan. By the dictionary definition, democracy

    I was privileged enough to have been born into a middle-class family in the latter part of the twentieth century in America. I say I was privileged because modern America has one of the most productive and stable economies in the world. Also, America's middle-class is a very stable group of people, economically speaking. Because of this stability, I have hardly noticed my relationship to the macroeconomy throughout my life. I have heard Alan Greenspan referred to as "god," and if he is, then

    paideia is shown here as a resignification of tragedy as paideia in consonance with several contemporary thinkers. In this philosophical reading of tragedy, noted as the confirmation of an êthos starting from páthos, the experience of suffering is a privileged instance of learning which generates a peculiar wisdom — anagnórisis. Its appropriation gives occasion for a deep conversion that may take place as salvation. Moreover, the tragical paideía is — in the case of Antígone — an exemplary surpassing
