  • 2001 A Space Odyssey - 1,265 words
    2001 A Space Odyssey 2001 : A Space Odyssey. I am going to be talking about Stanley Kubricks '2001: a space odyssey', focusing (obviously) on the music, but also the sound. I will also be incorporating elements from Mark Millers article "2001 - a cold descent" 2001: A Space Odyssey, introduced in 1968, is a high concept production that begins by tracing the 'Dawn Of Man', which eventually leads to a journey through the solar system by a crew of astronauts aboard a spaceship bound for Jupiter. The accompanying soundtrack plays as much of a role in the development of suspense and intrigue as the actors performances. Three decades later, the soundtrack remains one of the most recognized in cine ...

  • Affirmative Action - 1,487 words
    ... f Prop. 209 permits gender discrimination that is "reasonably necessary" to the "normal operation" of public education, employment and contracting. In 1998, The ban on use of affirmative action in admissions at the University of California went into effect. UC Berkeley had a 61% drop in admissions, and UCLA had a 36% decline. This decline strengthens the position of the Pro side of affirmative action. However, a contingency plan has been established. According to a source (who asked to remain nameless), UC Berkeley has a program to actively recruit more minority students that falls out of the guidelines established by prop. 209.

  • Brave New World Aldous Huxley - 1,115 words
    ... e novel. Everything came out naturally in the situation. But the plot wasnt the best. What kept the story going more was the humor of the situation. It was humorous the way that this future society laughed at mothers, and looked down upon monogamy and marriage. The way that John continued to call Thomas father causing the laughter of the people working at the hatchery was humorous. Also, another thing that kept the story going was the ideas that this story discussed. Bernard in the beginning of the novel had some morals. He felt uncomfortable to have sex on the first date and he felt deep in his gut that there was more to life than what was spoon fed to him. Sadly, all of his morals and ...

  • Communismthe Ideal Society Society Is Flawed There Are Critical Imbalances In - 1,350 words
    ... t individuals should be equal, not divided into two distinct worlds. Marx describes the current individual in society saying that "In bourgeois society capital is independent and has individuality, while the living person is dependent and has no individuality" (Marx, p.69). He also makes the distinguishing point that it is important for the reader to realize that objections they have more than likely rise up from their own bourgeoisie background. "You must, therefore, confess that by individual' you mean no other person than the bourgeois, than the middle-class owner of property. This person must, indeed be swept out of the way, and made impossible" (Marx, p.70). Marx, and also communism ...

  • Cost Of Stability In Brave New World - 1,631 words
    Cost Of Stability In Brave New World The Cost of Stability in Brave New World David Grayson once said that Commandment Number One of any truly civilized society is this: Let people be different. Difference, or individuality, however, may not be possible under a dictatorial government. Aldous Huxley's satirical novel Brave New World shows that a government-controlled society often places restraints upon its citizens, which results in a loss of social and mental freedom. The conditioning of the citizens, the categorical division of society, and the censorship of art and religion carry out these methods of limiting human behavior. Conditioning the citizens to like what they have and reject what ...

  • It Is Important To Realize That The Treatment Of Women In China Had Its Roots In The Ancient Confucius Philosophy He Introduc - 1,480 words
    It is important to realize that the treatment of women in China had its roots in the ancient Confucius philosophy. He introduced the Five Human Relationships to the world in his Analectics. By making these relationships, he brought order to society. These relationships ranged from that of a father to a son, ruler to subject, husband to wife, older brother to younger brother, and friend to a friend. In all of these, except the last one, the first person was the superior to the second, and was supposed to set a good example and take care of the inferior. The second person, the inferior, owed respect and obedience to their superior. Friends were social equals who owed each other respect and cou ...

  • Polytheism: God Is Dead By Nietzsche - 1,344 words
    Polytheism: God Is Dead By Nietzsche Reproduced, with permission, from THE FUTURIST, Published by the World Future Society, 7910 Woodmont Avenue, Suite 450, Bethesda, Maryland 20814 Toward the end of the nineteenth century, the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche wrote a fictional account of a madman who went about the town proclaiming that God is dead. Nietzsche's story is illustrative of a wave of atheism that spread through the intellectual circles of Europe in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, but that never caught on in society at large. The idea of the divine demise, however, did not die: A movement by theologians resurrected Nietzsche's thesis in the 1960s, amidst ...

  • Population And Food - 1,178 words
    Population And Food The United Nations projects that the global population, currently at 6 billion, will peak at about 10 billion in the next century and then stabilize or even decline.(popindex.Princeton.edu) A question immediately following the statement, can the Earth feed that many people? It is understood that even if food crops increase sufficiently, other renewable resources, including many fisheries and forests, are already under pressure. Our food production doubled from 1961 to 1994, but there are still people who go hungry. (popindex.Princeton.edu) This is because the human population has increased more rapidly than the food production. One of the well-known economists Thomas Robe ...

  • Subj: Biblical Prophesy Following The Exile Of The Hebrews From Babylon Title: The Minor Post Exilic Prophets Before The Baby - 1,924 words
    Subj: Biblical prophesy following the exile of the Hebrews from Babylon Title: The Minor Post Exilic Prophets Before the Babylonian exile, Biblical prophesy reached its highest point. Prophets such as Jeremiah and Ezekiel changed and molded the scope of Israelite religion. Their writings were intelligent, insightful, well developed, and contained a great spiritual meaning. Following the Babylonian exile, however, prophesy took a depressing downward turn. There are many post exilic prophets, yet their writings are usually short, mostly irrelevant, repetitive, and, for the most part, anonymous. Though this is the case for many of these prophets, their works cannot be overlooked. Haggai and Zec ...

  • The Veldt By Ray Bradbury - 460 words
    The Veldt by Ray Bradbury The story of "The Veldt", is a delving into the issue of how modern technology can destroy the nuclear family. The editor of the Encounters book, John A. Rothermich comments that "This story is almost devoid of characterization.", I agree with this statement and think it is key to the plot of the story. The story begins with the mother of the family, who has quite a generic name. We are given no information of the characters background and how they came to the point in time they are now. The lines "Happylife Home" and the familiar room settings like the parent's bedroom and the nursery give you a sense that this is a typical suburban home of the time. The mother see ...
