  • Conservation And Preservation Of The Pompeiian Architecture - 1,866 words
    Conservation And Preservation Of The Pompeiian Architecture The ancient Roman city of Pompeii was buried by a volcano in 79 AD. That should be enough to destroy any town, but the city's buildings were in fact protected by this coating of ash, and although it would never be inhabited again, it now bears witness to an incredible period of history. For thousands of years, the city lay virtually undisturbed, and protected from the elements and erosion. Excavations carried out over the last centuries have allowed the city to be once again buzzing with people, and even if this notion may appear romantic, the city is also affected by the elements once again, and that is a major problem. Since it wa ...

  • Dinosaurs Extinction - 1,537 words
    Dinosaurs Extinction The first question that must be posed when trying to crack the mystery of the mass extinction is to ask, throughout history were there any other occurences of this magnitude? The answer is a resounding yes. Altogether over time there has been about eight mass extinctions to large land dwelling vertebrates. The most recent was about ten thousand years ago, killing most of the giant mammals like mammoths, mastodons, super-large camels, saber-toothed tigers, and others (Bakker 428). The second question, is whether or not these mass extinctions follow a pattern? Once again the answer is yes. Every time a mass extinction occurs on the land ecosystem, the oceanic system is hur ...

  • Free Will - 803 words
    Free Will Do I have Free Will? After considering the evidence for the three views I have concluded that soft determinism is best supported. I will be arguing for soft determinism with evidence presented in the class readings. I will start out with the evidence of unconscious motivation. It is the unconscious that forces us to act out things we think are justifiable but can actually be hurtful. With the three factors of our unconscious state, the ID, super-ego and the unconscious ego, we tend to be in a tug-of-war with our mind over who has control. With the mind being in the unconscious state we tend to make compromises in our actions. With the unconscious working, we have the freedom of fre ...

  • Lord Of The Flies - 745 words
    Lord Of The Flies In most books, the authors use symbolism to expand the novel beyond its literal meaning. Symbolism is used to represent or foreshadow the theme of the story. As one reads William Golding's classic novel, Lord of the Flies, he will begin to recognize the way basic civilization is slowly stripped away from the boys. In this novel, the author utilizes many elements of symbolism to help accomplish his message, which is man is basically evil. In Lord of the Flies, Golding uses signal fire not only to rescue the characters from corruption and evil, but also to symbolize common sense. The boys, who are stranded on an island, create fire, attempting to contact boats out on the sea. ...

  • Ptolemy - 2,378 words
    Ptolemy Introduction In ancient times there were many great ideas which began to shape the way man perceived his environment. However, there were few minds who were able to put all of these ideas together. One of these minds belonged to Claudius Ptolemy, or just Ptolemy as he is commonly referred to. We know almost nothing of the chronology of Ptolemy's life, and we don't even know his birth or death dates. We do know, though, about his ideas in several fields, which include geography, astronomy, optics, astrology, music, and other topics. His most profound and lasting contributions came in the fields of geography and astronomy, where his two written works Geography and Almagest dominated th ...

The short tales formulate the common themes for the novel as follows: isolation and loneliness, discovery, inhibition, and cultural failure.
