  • Socrates Was An Ancient Greek Philosopher Who Was Accused Of Impiety And Corrupting The Youth Of Athens His Sentence Was Deat - 852 words
    Socrates was an ancient Greek philosopher who was accused of impiety and corrupting the youth of Athens. His sentence was death, byway of drinking poison. However, prior to his execution day, a friend, Crito, offered Socrates an opportunity to flee Athens, and evade his death sentence. Socrates refused to run away, and he justified his reasons to Crito. I agree with Socrates' justifications for not escaping, he accepted his death justly and faced the sentence the Athenian court declared. Throughout the Crito, Socrates explains his reasoning for not evading the government. Socrates introduces several pivotal ideas in the dialogue, which led me to agree with his decision. The first idea requir ...

  • The Allegory Of The Cave Is A Dialogue On Nature, By The Very Influential Greek Philosopher Plato His Life Was Headed Toward - 439 words
    The Allegory of the Cave is a dialogue on nature, by the very influential Greek philosopher Plato. His life was headed toward politics until his mentor Socrates was executed. Plato then abandoned politics and turned to writing and teaching philosophy. I believe his philosophies play a more significant and meaningful role than materialism in our modern society. He believes that the world revealed by our senses is not the real world but only an illusion of true reality. The cave represents the system or government, in this cave lives prisoner chained like animal to the wall with no mobility and deprived of light. This allegory shows why the truth is so hard to accept and why once the prisoners ...

  • Aristotles Tragedy - 1,488 words
    Aristotle`s Tragedy Defining a Tragedy Greek philosopher Aristotle proposes components of an ideal tragedy in his work, Tragedy and the Emotions of Pity and Fear. According to Aristotle, there are six components of a great tragedy: plot, character, thought, verbal expression, song, and visual adornment. He dissects these components in great detail and provides standards for all of them. In his play Bacchae, Euripides resembles much of Aristotles components of an ideal tragedy.

  • Atlantis: We Will Never Know - 997 words
    Atlantis: We will never know Atlantis Atlantis: We will never know Fantasy is a tough sell in the twentieth century. The world has been fully discovered and fully mapped. Popular media has effectively minimized the legend and the fantastic rumor, though to make up for this it has generated falsities not as lavish but just as interesting. Satellites have mapped and studied the earth, leaving only a space frontier that is as yet unreachable. But standing out is a charming fantasy the modern world has yet to verify or condemn: the lost continent of Atlantis. The father of the modern worlds perception of Atlantis is Plato (circa 428- circa 347 b.c.). (1) The Greek philosopher spoke in his works ...

  • Atomic Theory - 1,225 words
    Atomic Theory In ancient Greek the word atom meant the smallest indivisible particle that could be conceived. The atom was thought of as indestructible; in fact, the Greek word for atom means not divisible. Knowledge about the size and make up of the atom grew very slowly as scientific theory progressed. What we know/theorize about the atom now began with a core theory devised by Democrotus, a Greek philosopher who proposed that matter consisted of various types of tiny discrete particles and that the properties of matter were determined by the properties of these particles. This core theory was then modified and altered over years by Dalton, Thompson, Rutherford, Bhor, and Chadwick. The ato ...

  • Canterbury Tales By Chaucer - 1,671 words
    Canterbury Tales By Chaucer Geoffrey Chaucers Canterbury Tales is a story of nine and twenty pilgrims traveling to Canterbury, England in order to visit the shrine of St. Thomas A. Becket.

  • Doubting Thomas - 676 words
    Doubting Thomas Doubting Thomas According to Webster, Skepticism is the philosophical doctrine that the attainment of absolute knowledge is impossible. It comes from the Greek word skeptesthai meaning to examine, and the practice was brought about during the elementary stages of philosophy by Pyrrho sometime between 360-270 b.c. Some other well-known skeptics are Xenophanes, Gorgias, and Sextus Empiricus. Skepticism is very common in today's society, and is practiced in some way by all. If you are alive and functioning on this planet, you'll find that it is difficult to avoid being skeptic in one way or another.96 Pyrrho was an ancient Greek philosopher, who introduced pure skepticism into G ...

  • Dream Interpretation - 1,531 words
    Dream Interpretation When we sleep we do much more than just "rest our weary bones"; we tap into our subconscious mind (Ullman and Zimmerman 1979). The subconscious has much to offer about oneself. The average human being spends one third of their life in sleep and during each sleep approximently two hours is spent dreaming (Ullman and Zimmerman 1979). These dreams are important because they are the voice of our subconscious. Dreams and theories on dreams go as far back as 2000 BC in Egypt. One of the first organized glimpses into the diagnostics of a dream came in an Egyptian book called the Chester Beatty Papyrus, its author is unknown. In ancient Greece dreams were believed to be messages ...
