  • Diversity Within English

    1598 words, 7 pages

    In order to understand how language variation descriptors are used, we first must understand what language variation is. We can say that the U.S. is linguistically diverse because of the multitude of languages spoken here, but we can also find diversity within these languages. All languages have both dialectical variations and registral variations. These variations, or dialects, can differ in lexicon, phonology, and/or syntax from the Standard Language that we often think of as ?correct¹ Language, although they are not necessarily less proper than,

    Philosophy An Enquiry Concerning The Principles Of Morals

    714 words, 3 pages

    What is a moral? This is a question that has plagued philosophers for many years. Is it possible to have a set of universal morals? There are many questions that surround the mystery of morals. They seem to drive our every action. We base our decisions on what is right and what is wrong. But what is it that actually determines what is right and what is wrong? Is it our sense of reason? Is it our sense of sentiment? This is a question that David Hume spent much of his life pondering. What exactly is it that drives our actions? Yes, morals drive them, but what determines

    Socrate's First Accusers and Athenian Law Of all confrontations in political philosophy, the biggest is the conflict between philosophy and politics. The problem remains making philosophy friendly to politics. The questioning of authoritative opinions is not easily accomplished nor is that realm of philosophy - the pursuit of wisdom. Socrates was the instigator of the conflict. While the political element takes place within opinions about political life, Socrates asks the question "What is the best regime and how should I live?" Ancient thought is riddled with unknowns

    Frederick James The Limites Of Post Modern Theory

    5435 words, 22 pages

    The impetus behind this paper has been the recent publication of Fredric Jameson's 1991 Welleck Lectures, The Seeds of Time.1 As these lectures were delivered a decade after Jameson's initial attempts to map the terrain of postmodernity it appeared to me to provide an occasion to reflect upon the current status of Jameson's highly influential and much criticised theory of postmodernism as the cultural logic of late capitalism. It also enables me to return to, what I consider to be, one of the most troubling aspects of Jameson's writing on postmodernism, that is to say, the "waning",

    Archaeology Of Ancient Egypt

    World of Antiquity Egyptian Archaeology Paper Archeology is defined as the study of past cultures and extinct ways of life. In real terms this translates into exploring both above and below the surface of our earth to find what came before us. This is important for several factors, mainly that it allows us to step back in time to a place that is no longer accessible to us to experience firsthand. The extent to which we know our own history would be very limited and creditability would diminish among scholars who to this day debate over “hard facts”. Archaeologists are considered to

    Aristotle And Slavery

    2298 words, 10 pages

    I am of the opinion that slavery was one of the issues on which Aristotle had to walk the fine line. He is often criticized by modern scholars for condoning slavery. But, would a public renunciation of slavery by a teacher to the rich and powerful have had any influence in speeding the abolition of it? Hardly. However, it certainly would have been detrimental to the well-being of Aristotle himself. Slavery has been practiced since the beginnings of civilization, and most likely even before that. Slavery has been a factor in the economy of many societies and states up to our present times. S

    Are Reason And Emotion Equally Necessary In Justifying Moral Decisions

    Introduction Whether reason or emotion is equally necessary in justifying moral decisions is a highly controversial topic. In order to come to a conclusion I am going to analyse and evaluate two important approaches from Immanuel Kant and Jeremy Bentham. I will partially focus on these two important figures, as one presents good will as the only thing that is capable of producing morally justified decisions, if that will conforms to practical reasoning. The other one states that a moral decision is a decision that increases the "Greatest Pleasure for the Greatest Number of People” thereby f

    Life and death are opposing forces of nature that one can not escape. In the poem, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, the poet uses nature’s forces to represent procreation, which is the giving of life and destruction, which is the dealing of death. The poet expresses through out the poem how these two forces, life and death are interconnected. In the beginning of the story, King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table were celebrating the New Year, until the Green Knight, sent by Morgan Le Fay, Arthur’s sister, rode into his court carrying a holly bush and an axe.

Metaphysics helps us to reach beyond nature as we see it, and to discover the “true nature” of things, and their ultimate reasons for existence. There are many ways to approach metaphysics. Two of the earliest known thinkers on the topic are Plato and Aristotle. These two philosophers had ideas tha

Plato stated that a truly just city would occur if and only if everyone over the age of 10 was discarded, the remaining young citizens possessed an innocent and uncorrupted soul. Plato suggested that every time a law was made to contain a certain act, that another act took the place of the previous one, requiring more laws to restrain each and every one.

Furthermore, there is this camp of scholars who highlight the role of the narrator(s) as the inextricably constructive constituent(s) of
