- Cheating - 2,007 words
Cheating Cheating has seemingly become an everyday phenomenon in exam situations at most of Hungarian universities. Almost every student prepares for the examinations making handy little bits of paper, contemplating on where to sit and, during the exam itself, the most sophisticated even use their mobile phones to surmount the numerous gaps in their knowledge. Day after day in the exam period stories such as the following circulate in the corridors of the School of English and American Studies, as well as other faculties of ELTE and other universities in our country.

- Immanuel Kant Simply Stated The Creed Of The Enlightenment: Dare To Know, Kant 1 To Thinkers Like Kant, To Achieve Enlightenm - 1,261 words
Immanuel Kant simply stated the creed of the enlightenment: "Dare to know," (Kant 1). To thinkers like Kant, to achieve enlightenment was to "gain release from...self-incurred tutelage...[the] inability to make use of [ones] understanding without direction from another," (Kant 1). Enlightenment thinkers addressed this issue. They present to us the question; why is it so hard to think for oneself? They propose answers to this puzzle, as well as provide solutions that will teach us how to think for ourselves. Through Immanuel Kants "What is Enlightenment" and J.S. Mills On Liberty, we can gain a deeper understanding of this question, and its answers. According to Kant, "laziness and cowardice" ...

- Micro Soft The Split Of An Empire - 2,374 words
... rosoft has proposed that all of the above restrictions remain in place for four years instead of the ten as requested by the government, stating that nothing in the record would justify such a long term for relief.

In stark contrast to the relief sought in its complaint, the government seeks to rip apart the company that until recently had the largest market capitalization in the world - an extreme remedy not even hinted at in the government's complaint, stated one of Microsoft's last fil ...

- The Great Gatsby - 585 words
The Great Gatsby Why was Gatsby so Great? The Roaring 20's was a time of celebration, but to many the 20's were instead seen as a decade of decadence. Many wealthy people lived reckless and careless lives, not caring about anything but the next party or social function. In Scott Fitzgerald's novel, The Great Gatsby, the narrator, Nick Carroway, observes the greedy, selfish behavior of the rich. This uninhibited view into others soul's causes Nick to lose faith in mankind until he met Jay Gatsby, the mysterious man who this novel is written about. What made Gatsby so different from the average American? To answer this question, one must observe, through Nick Carroway's eyes, Gatsby's hopeful ...

- Trade In Ancient Greece - 2,759 words
... ted to the Trojan ruling house. Such conscious fraud demands a certain level of business sophistication, which must be coupled with gullible sub-contractors who have no recourse to court or contract. It would seem that in the Trojan world of Asia Minor, which is closer to the Eastern seats of ancient culture and business, this sort of thing happened from time to time, but it was inconceivable to the European "Greeks" who were not yet aware of financial trickery as a component of business contracts. Reasons for being cheated and deceived may be forgotten, but the idea of being treated badly has an way of persisting for centuries, and hate would seem regularly to outlast love We are probab ...
