- Descartes - 1,504 words
Descartes Annonymous A paper delivered at the CALIFORNIA JOYCE conference (6/30/93) To quote the opening of Norbert Wiener's address on Cybernetics to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in March of 1950, The word cybernetics has been taken from the Greek word kubernitiz (ky-ber-NEE-tis) meaning steersman. It has been invented because there is not in the literature any adequate term describing the general study of communication and the related study of control in both machines and in living beings. In this paper, I mean by cybernetics those activities and ideas that have to do with the sending, carrying, and receiving of information. My thesis is that there is a cybernetic plot to ULYS ...

- Did The Women Of Homers Epics Direct The Actions Of Men - 1,304 words
DID THE WOMEN OF HOMER'S EPICS DIRECT THE ACTIONS OF MEN? Throughout the Common Era, women have been recognized as a strong influence on the actions of men. For example, Eleanor Roosevelt influenced the decisions that Franklin D. Roosevelt made, and in literature, Lady Macbeth urged Macbeth to commit murder. Did the women of Homer's epics, The Odyssey and The Iliad emulate the women of the Common Era? The Iliad is an epic about the Trojan War and Achilles' role as an Achaean warring against the Trojans. The Trojan War indirectly began because of Helen, who was kidnapped for her unsurpassed beauty. The Odyssey is an epic about a Greek warrior in the Trojan War whose wanderings around his know ...

- Heroism - 521 words
Heroism In Mythology Heroism is an important element in both Roman and Greek mythology. Honored as a man of cunning and a master of strategy, Odysseus is a beau ideal of Greek heroism. Being a man of sacrifice, rational thinking, and discipline, Aeneas is a praised counterpart to Odysseus. Both were victims of savagery and temptation, examples of heroism and valor, and recipients of struggle and satisfaction. Even when they are characters of different authors, they share common characteristics and abide by certain personality traits that define them to be heroes. A hero, almost by definition, is an example of heroism and intelligence. In times of danger and desolation, a hero must remain str ...

- Homer Is All Mixed Up - 1,557 words
Homer Is All Mixed Up Bruns 1 AP English 12 October 23, 2000 Homer is All Mixed Up Homer's epic, the Odyssey, is a heroic narrative that follows the adventures of Odysseus, the powerful King of Ithaca. The main story involves Odysseus's return journey to his homeland after the Trojan War. However, Homer skips around in the action periodically to give the reader a better understanding and interest in what is going on in the epic. Homer takes his audience from the present action involving Telemakhos' search for news of his father's return, to the past where Odysseus tells the Phaiakians of his tragic journey home after the war. The events in Homer's epic are not in order but still prove more e ...

- Mystical Caves Used Throughout Mythology The Use Of Caves In Mythology To Depict Darkness And Abandonment Has Branded It As A - 1,677 words
Mystical Caves Used Throughout Mythology The use of caves in mythology to depict darkness and abandonment has branded it as a symbol of chaos. From this perception other associations are made which connect the cave to prejudices, malevolent spirits, burial sites, sadness, resurrection and intimacy. It is a world to which only few venture, and yet its mysticism has attracted the interest of philosophers, religious figures and thinkers throughout history. These myths are exemplified in Homers "Odyssey," where the two worlds of mortals and immortals unite in the eternal cave. To Plato, the cave represents the confusion between reality and falsehood. Individuals chained deep within the recesses ...

- Satan: The True Hero Of Paradise Lost - 1,646 words
Satan: The True Hero Of Paradise Lost Satan: The True Hero of Paradise Lost The argument over who is the true protagonist of Paradise Lost, has been brewing for centuries. One would gather that Milton, a Puritan, would have no problem casting God as the hero, and Satan as the antagonist. But looking back in history, Milton saw that most epic heroes had conflicts that prevented them from accomplishing their goals. God and his Son have no conflict, and Adam's story doesn't really begin until the Fall of Man. Therefore, Milton was forced to select Satan as the hero of Paradise Lost because he adheres to the guidelines of epic poetry set by Homer, Vergil and others. There many examples of how Mi ...

... 's heart good. Signals full of meaning, ones like Milly's that land where they're sent, and are properly understood, can do a world of good. "Metempsychosis" is the word in this episode that prevents Molly from understanding a sentence in the trashy novel she's reading. The transmission of spirit across time and space is itself an idea that Poldy must translate into plain words in order for its meaning to reach Molly. But he does so, and she does understand. Meanings need new clothes to cross some borders, but quick wits know how to smuggle those meanings across. The fate of the magazine story ("Matcham's Masterstroke") that Bloom reads in the outhouse shows that some signals belong in t ...

He explains the humiliating French loss at the battle of Novi (15 August 1799) in terms of Joubert's ill-timed initiative, determined more by domestic politics than military considerations... (pp. 251-2). Indeed, the evidence Blanning presents suggests a dialectical relationship between foreign and domestic policy, one in which real threats from abroad have an impact on domestic politics, and in which imaginary foreign threats and conflicts are fabricated for use by domestic politicians, with real international consequenc ...

- The Journey Of Odysseus And Telemachos In The Odyssey Written By Homer And Translated By Richard Lattimore, Several Themes Ar - 1,271 words
The Journey of Odysseus and Telemachos In The Odyssey written by Homer and translated by Richard Lattimore, several themes are made evident, conceived by the nature of the time period, and customs of the Greek people. These molded and shaped the actual flow of events and outcomes of the poem. Beliefs of this characteristic were represented by the sheer reverence towards the gods and the humanities the Greek society exhibited, and are both deeply rooted within the story. In the intricate and well-developed plot of The Odyssey, Homer harmonized several subjects. One of these, was the quest of Telemachos, (titled "Telemachy") in correlation with the journey of his father. In this, he is develop ...

- The Women Og Greece: A Transition From Ancient Power To Classical Subservient Weakness - 1,578 words
The Women Og Greece: A Transition From Ancient Power To Classical Subservient Weakness The Women of Greece: A Transition from Ancient Power to Classical Subservience Women's conquest for political and social freedom is a battle that has gone on for centuries. Perhaps the breaking point in women's liberation was the Women's Movement of the 1900's, which encouraged women all over America to join in the fight for their right to vote. Because of this struggle for equality, women are now able to vote, receive a standard of fairness in the workplace, hold political positions, and play professional sports, as well as a wide array of other privileges enjoyed by men. Unfortunately, these civil rights ...

... to six months imprisonment or to both fine and imprisonment. (Retailers Would Put Teeth 1921, 190) The Canadian government, in passing the Fraudulent Advertising Act, had followed some U.S. states in implementing a watered-down version of legislation requiring proof of intent to deceive. This, of course, made it very difficult to obtain convictions. Fifteen years later, the act had yet to be used and was soundly criticized by a Canadian lawyer writing in the retitled EA, now called Marketing. It [the Fraudulent Advertising Act] serves only to bring law into general contempt; for though it proscribes lying in advertising, lying continues to flourish with impudent impunity (Wilson 1929, 2 ...
