  • Henri Bergson - 753 words
    Henri Bergson Henri Bergson was a modern philosopher who merged empiricism with a bit of rationalism to become part of a new empiricism that held room for intuition and movement with a flux through time. He essentially refused sciences claim to explain the universe in mechanical conditions; instead he considered life an unending creation, a matter of change and time unlike something static. In Henri Bergsons (originally?) dualistic realm there existed the distinctive modes of consciousness or knowing: analysis and intuition. Intuition consists of an internal grasping of an object, consequently capturing its very essence or heart. Analysis is basically an external or relative way to understan ...

  • Charlie Chaplin Stars In The Movie City Lights, A Silent, Black And White Film, Made In The 1930s Chaplin, Who Portrays The C - 841 words
    Charlie Chaplin stars in the movie City Lights, a silent, black and white film, made in the 1930's. Chaplin, who portrays the character of a tramp, is the comic hero throughout the movie. It is odd that the film casts a tramp as the comic hero. Usually, no one laughs at a poor tramp; people tend to have pity and sympathy for a tramp or not even associate with one. Many of Chaplin's actions are common everyday routines for him, but his actions and gestures provide humor and comic relief in the film making him the comic hero. Henri Bergson discusses the comic in "Laughter". Bergson writes about the comic by breaking it down into different parts such as the comic in general, the comic in charac ...

  • Humor Phenomenon - 1,679 words
    Humor Phenomenon There is a popular saying, "anyone can laugh at a good joke." If one was to actually ask around, he/she would find that this is quite true. This is part of the magic of humor. Humor, as defined by The American Heritage Dictionary, is"the quality that makes something laughable." Laughter can be defined as"the co-ordinated contraction of fifteen facial muscles (Koestler 29). However that definition tells how one laughs. The American Heritage Dictionary explains why we laugh by describing laughter as "the expression of delight or happiness." So therefore, it seems pretty safe to conclude that humor is used to make someone happy. But, the phenomenon of humor is not that simple. ...

    Jean Piaget This paper revolves around developmental psychologist Jean Piaget and his work. While swaying from the personal to the professional sides of the Swiss psychologist, the research touches on key influences that inspired young Piaget to become such a driven and well respected psychologist.

In addition to the material on the man and his theory, there is the most important component of the paper, the w ...
