  • Antigone: The True Tragic Hero In Sophocles Antigone - 1,003 words
    Antigone: The True Tragic Hero In Sophocles' Antigone Antigone: The True Tragic Hero in Sophocles' Antigone In Sophocles' Antigone, the question of who the tragic hero really is, has been a subject of debate for a great number years. Creon does possess some of the qualities that constitute a tragic hero but unfortunately does not completely fit into the role. Antigone, however, possesses all the aspects of a tragic hero. These are, having a high social position, not being overly good or bad, being persistent in their actions, arousing pity in the audience, a revelatory manifestation, and having a single flaw that brings about their own demise and the demise of others around them. Antigone po ...

  • Catholics And Episcopalians - 1,311 words
    Catholics And Episcopalians Catholics vs. Episcopalians, is there truly a distinction? When I recollect on my religious tradition, Catholicism, I ponder on just how different it is in practice and theology from that of protestant traditions. When examining I came to compare how deeply Catholics and Episcopalians are divided on questions of political and religious leadership? Through research I have concluded that Catholics and Episcopalians are vastly separated in political and religious leadership and this factor is the foremost distinction between the two traditions. Since the establishment of the Episcopalian Church we can see the link between the Church of England and further with the Ro ...

  • Comparitive Esay On The Joy Luck Club Fried Green Tomatoes - 1,370 words
    Comparitive Esay On The Joy Luck Club & Fried Green Tomatoes The Joy Luck Club is a saga about Chinese mothers and their American - born daughters. Four main sections divide the novel. Each section represents a stage in either the experience of immigration or in the mother/daughter relationships of the families.

All mothers who act in this book were born in the period between the mid 1920's and the late 1940's. The social and political history o ...

    Dawn Schultz Religion in the U.S. Midterm Project 02.25.99 "You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden." -Matthew 5:14 John Winthrop: "In seventeenth-century England, there was no such thing as freedom of religion. Sincere Christians had only two choices: either work to reform the Church from within, or break off from the Church and reject its authority. Those who wanted to break off from the Church were known as Separatists; the Puritans were not Separatists. We believed that breaking off was a very serious matter, and should only be considered as a last alternative. We did not want to be disloyal to the Crown. But as the Church grew more hostile towards our Puritan i ...

  • Morality Empirical Approach - 2,383 words
    Morality - Empirical Approach 1. Introduction In this paper I wish to consider the following related questions: (i) Can a system of morality be justified?; (ii) Why should one act morally?; (iii) How can others be persuaded to act morally? Clearly none of these questions is new, and moral philosophers have proposed a variety of responses to them over the centuries without reaching any general agreement. Nevertheless, because these questions are fundamental to any practical application of moral theory, it is worthwhile to continue to reflect upon them. For Jewish, Christian and Muslim societies, the justification of morality is the Word of God as expressed in the Bible and Koran. Given an aut ...

  • Sabbath Dinner - 1,303 words
    Sabbath Dinner The Israeli family is not an ordinary American family no matter how Americanized the kids feel. In most American families, with a teenager involved a Friday night is a detached night from the family. You ask just about any teenager what they do on a Friday night and they will say, "Party" or "Hang out with friends". On the other hand the family-dinner that my parents and I went to was at our friends house and like most Israeli families they to spend Friday nights as a family; no one leaves the house until dinner is over. (Unless they go to a synagogue together and then come home to have dinner, or go to a friends house together) Dinner is a whole separate ritual, there are cer ...

  • The Views Of Mencius And Hsuntzu On Heaven - 382 words
    The Views Of Mencius And Hsun-Tzu On Heaven November 17, 1999 The Views of Mencius and Hsun-tzu on Heaven. Mencius believes that it is our nature and mind that determine what we are. It is our fate that governs our fortunes and determines our lease on life. Fate was originally a patent to a fief-holder, given by the Son of Heaven as Heaven's deputy to a feudatory. In extended usage it became our lot in life - the fate ordained by heaven. While people guard their minds and determine their conduct, they cannot determine their fate, which is in Heaven's hands. So, Mencius believed that though all humans are innately good, the realization of that good comes with self-cultivation and self-knowled ...

  • What Is The Renouncer Tradition - 1,521 words
    ... d destiny, for them nothing is a ritual. With hindsight we can see that the renouncer tradition has aided in the development of Indian relgion, and it created values that later diffused to the Brahmanical householder tradition. I have already mentioned in passing a few of the different sects of the renouncer tradition, but I think that it is imperative to explain these further and see the differences in doctrine and practise and even the similarities in the religions that all evolved form the same ideal. The first will be the examination of the Upanisads and the Brahmanical renouncer. The contents of the Upanisads include the dispensability of ritual, esoteric knowledge and the attainmen ...

    Who Is the Tragic Hero, Antigone or Creon? This analysis is to determine the character that fits the tragic hero profile; it was completely based according to the Aristotelian idea of tragic hero and it is understood that hero is: "...neither purely evil or purely wicked; the hero must born in the high social status, and he/she must possess a tragic flaw which is proper from the inner side of the character; it usually manifests in the form of poor judgment and or arrogance, condemning him/herself into a catastrophic finality and in the meanwhile, establishes other characters destiny" (Eschbach 02/17,). Either Antigone or Creon is situated in the highest level of the social hierarchy. Creon b ...
