  • Against Interpretation By Susan Sontag - 527 words
    Against Interpretation By Susan Sontag Susan Sontag, in "Against Interpretation," takes a very interesting critical standpoint on the idea of literary interpretation. Unlike most literary critics, Sontag believes that literary criticism is growing increasingly destructive towards the very works of art that they, supposedly, so greatly "appreciate" and "respect." Her standpoint could not be more accurate. Reading her work generates numerous questions, the most important of which is quite possibly, "How are we to take her final statement, In place of a hermeneutics we need an erotics of art." In the light of her previous statements, made throughout the work, one could only see this particular ...

  • Constitutional Interpretation - 1,307 words
    Constitutional Interpretation Introduction In this essay I will try to explain and critique the two dominant methods of constitutional interpretation. Which are originalism and non-originalism. I will do this by taking help from "How to Read the Constitution" by Christopher Wolfe, and different source's from Internet. I will start by giving what Wolfe says originalism is, and then I will give some background to other ways to interpret the constitution, and the founders and interpretation and I will finish up with my view on originalism and non-originalism and the critics to that. Wolfe on Originalism Wolfe says that originalism is a two-fold doctrine. First, it holds that the constitution is ...

  • Dietrich Bonhoeffers Interpretation Of Ot - 1,773 words
    Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Interpretation Of OT In reviewing the works of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the study of the Old Testament seems to be almost non-existent. It is not until his time in Tegel Prison, nearly one year prior to his execution, that he fully commits himself to serious thought on the subject "My thoughts and feelings seem to be getting more and more like those of the Old Testament, and in recent months I have been reading the Old Testament much more than the New (Bonhoeffer, Letters, 156)." Though his Old Testament study was fairly dicey and incomplete, the contributions of his interpretation have been tremendous. Bonhoeffers distinct Christological approach to the Old Testament may n ...

  • Dietrich Bonhoeffers Interpretation Of Ot - 1,691 words
    ... e Bonhoeffers sermon on Psalm 58 (July 11, 1937) grapples with the difficulty in understanding the biblical soundness of the desiring of vengeance. Should Christians be permitted to utilize this form of prayer? Is it biblical (Kuske 85)? The person praying this prayer must be sinless. David is permitted to pray such a prayer because Christ, the sinless one, was (as mentioned in the study of King David) in him. Because Christ is sinless, he has the right to condemn injustice. In this Psalm, Christ calls for the annihilation of evil and later enacts this in his death and resurrection. David stands in the shadow of Christ, bearing witness to him (Harrelson 129). Bonhoeffer finds a way to pr ...

  • Does Dream Interpretation Really Work - 934 words
    Does Dream Interpretation Really Work? Dreaming is one of our most intimate experiences. Every dream, every night, is very unique. Our dream world, however confusing, frightening, or even sexy, reveals all of our secrets. Every human emotion and experience can be reflected in our dreams. They mirror our deepest desires, hopes, fears, and fantasies. Our hidden self, the one we try to keep from the outside world, emerges from our subconscious. We see ourselves in the raw, sometimes quite literally. Its this complete exposure that makes our dreams so important (Grant 1). A dream is defined as a thought or imaginary transaction that occupies the mind during sleep, but many people never know what ...

  • 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 ...

An ever-growing trend is the idea of being psychic; the idea of this is false because futuristic visions cant occur in the conscious mind (Ullman and Zimmerman, 1979). It is however possible in the subconscious mind. When someone dreams of a future experience this would display a superconscious dream. Its prophetic in a way and this type of dream was extremely promoted in biblical times. Daniel, form the bible, many times had superconscious dreams as he dealt with Nebuchadnezzar II (king of Babylon). There were many pro ...

    Dream Interpretation Therapy Dream Interpretation and Dream Interpretation Therapy There are many facts that are unknown about dreams and their meanings. For centuries, philosophers and scientists have tried to understand the meaning of dreams. They have all been fascinated by the fact that the content of dreams may have meanings relating to one's life. Are dreams just thoughts in people's minds, or are dreams in fact representations of different areas in people's lives? Dreams represent many different areas of one's life in physical, emotional, and mental ways. Dreams can relay to people facts about their lives that they are not even aware of. There are also many ways that dreams can help c ...

    ... atient. The therapist invites the patient to talk about his or her past, angers, fears, and fantasies. This form of talking helps the patient gain control of his life by confessing to the therapist his or her needs, motivations in life, wishes and memories. Sometimes there are difficulties in the progress of a person's ability to talk about what is bothering him or her. This difficulty of making progress is called resistance. An example of resistance is when the patient becomes unable to talk to the therapist any longer, or stops communicating feelings, or does not want to talk about certain topics. Transference is another problem that sometimes occurs through the course of the therapy. ...

  • Evidence And Interpretation In Paleoanthropology - 566 words
    Evidence And Interpretation In Paleoanthropology Evidence and Interpretation in Paleoanthropology In a search to find our ancestors, several anthropologists have found evidence to support their conclusions. In the films about Don Johanson's discovery of Lucy in Hadar, one may be very intrigued by the first film but very disturbed by the second film. I was very intrigued by the findings of the Australopithecines. The idea that Lucy, the skeleton found in Hadar, Africa, was closely related to the human species was amazing. Lucy was bipedal and her brain was smaller than that of modern humans. Lucy resembled an ape and was able to make tools to find food and weapons. Hadar, Africa was believed ...

  • Factors Influencing Interpretation Of Humorous Ambiguities - 1,562 words
    Factors Influencing Interpretation Of Humorous Ambiguities Factors Influencing Interpretation of Humorous Ambiguities What makes something humorous? Often, humor is found through peculiarities of language. One such peculiarity is the different definitions that are related to the same word. When the correct choice of these definitions is unclear it results in an ambiguity. In the 1970's David Swinney did a study involving cross-modal priming. This research supported the idea that all meanings of ambiguous words are activated regardless of the context. To decide which interpretation is the correct one we generally use five factors; frequency, prosody, context, syntax, and plausibility. Frequen ...

  • Freud Interpretation Of Hamlet - 1,833 words
    Freud Interpretation Of Hamlet Before we begin, I would like to congratulate you all on getting selected for the various parts in this production of Hamlet. My name is Glenn Close, and I will be directing this production from today until it closes in Tokyo next May. I have played the role of Gertrude, as many of you know, in the Hollywood production starring Mel Gibson. I also played Ophelia twice in high school and once my senior year at UCLA. This is my favorite Shakespeare play, one of the best of all time. Recently I was reintroduced to Freuds notable commentary on Shakespeare and his relation to Sophocles in The Interpretation of Dreams. From this I have pulled the essential pages and c ...

  • Freuds Interpretation Of Dreams - 1,109 words
    Freud's Interpretation Of Dreams Sigmund Freuds The Interpretation of Dreams by Jackie Zee Sigmund Freuds The Interpretation of Dreams was originally published in 1900. The era was one of prudish Victorians. It was also the age of the continued Enlightenment. The New Formula of science, along with the legacy of Comtes Positivism, had a firm hold on the burgeoning discipline of psychology. Freud was groomed as both scientist and Romantic, but his lifes work reflected conflict of the two backgrounds and a reaction against each one. It is my opinion that The Interpretation of Dreams was not simply written as a methodology of deconstructing dreams and assigning them meaning, but its latent conte ...

    ... ations of associations to emerge in dreams, however, are expressed through variations in sensory intensities among different dream-images, or even entire dreams. While Freud admits that physiological or waking concerns can penetrate the dream state on occasion (such as dreaming of drinking a cool glass of water when you go to bed thirsty), he denies any special prominence to these causes. Nor is the vividness or clarity of dream-images indicative of psychical value between the dream-images and their meanings. All dreams serve the purpose of fulfilling a wish. Often (but not always) these dreams can trace back to sexual or aggressive motives. For example, the specimen dream of Irmas Injec ...

  • Freuds The Interpretation Of Dreams - 274 words
    Freud`S The Interpretation Of Dreams Sigmund Freud's work in psychotherapetures, and the effective results gained in connection with his "psycho-analytic method", have attracted wide attention among psychiatrists and the medical fraternity. In the coarse of his many psycho-analyses Freud has been much impressed by the important fact that the forgotten experiences resuscitated by this means bear a striking resemblance to the content of dream life, and this led him to adopt the theory of Dreams presented in "The Interpretation of Dreams" (The Nation p.81). In his book the Interpretation of Dreams, Freud draws the conclusion that dreams are personal psychological events. Freud also states that ...

    Interpretation of Ibsen's "A Doll's House" english interpretation of Ibsen's "A Doll's House" "A Doll's House" is classified under the "second phase" of Henrik Ibsen's career. It was during this period which he made the transition from mythical and historical dramas to plays dealing with social problems. It was the first in a series investigating the tensions of family life. Written during the Victorian era, the controversial play featuring a female protagonist seeking individuality stirred up more controversy than any of his other works. In contrast to many dramas of Scandinavia in that time which depicted the role of women as the comforter, helper, and supporter of man, "A Doll's House" in ...

    Interpretation of Rushdie and Kazantzakis' Stories As I look back now, and begin to appraise the independant novels that I have read in the past few weeks, I was both stunned and surprised by the psychological effects that they had imposed on my mind. Whether it was Rushdie's tale of diabolical consequences or Kazantzakis' story on the trial of Christ, I found it increasingly difficult to maintain a coalition between the influence of society and the animosity of religion. Both novels featured plots centralized around the presence of an unseen mystical force, or rather, the significance and power of God. Whether it was the religious or saintly detriment of God's influence or society's standar ...

  • Justice Whites Interpretation Of Tennessee State Law - 976 words
    Justice WhiteS Interpretation Of Tennessee State Law CONCURRING OPINION: We concur with Justice White's interpretation of Tennessee State law. However, we propose that more restrictive standards should be used by policemen when dealing with imminently dangerous circumstances. The necessity standard that White proposes for governing the use of lethal force strikes the right balance in regulating violence. He insists that the police act reasonably by evaluating whether the felon's interest in life outweighs the state's interest in seizing the felon by lethal force. Because we honor the supreme value of human life, lethal force should only be used when there is a reasonable belief that the felo ...
