The story uses simple language to explai ...

  • Dunkirk And Its Significance - 1,368 words
    Dunkirk And Its Significance Being a blue blooded Brit, and all that, I decided to write my piece on how historians view Dunkirk. My earliest thoughts on it were shaped by early black and white war films; with noble Tommies against vile Huns, gallantly beating out their escape, while under heavy attack. The truth about the matter was far from straightforward, with a host of variables, as well as lots of good luck. For us Dunkirk- though admittedly a failure, we did flee the field after all- was an amazing feat of sheer courage, National spirit, as well as raw tenacity, refusing to kick the can despite every odd stacked against us- rather like in the Battle of Agincourt. As we all know the st ...

  • Luke's Significance In The Scriptures - 1,101 words
    Luke'S Significance In The Scriptures Kevin Kearney November 4, 2001 Core Humanities Paper Assignment #8 Luke's Significance in the Scriptures If I were lucky enough to lecture students on Luke's Gospel, simply discussing the factual aspect of his writings would not do him, nor Jesus, any justice. Along with it being a great depiction of Jesus' life from his conception until his resurrection, Luke's Gospel teaches lessons Jesus used through His teachings to better educate His followers of what it takes to eventually be a part of God's kingdom. Such information would be seemingly too broad to understand within the confines of a book, however Luke masterfully combines all of these facts into o ...

  • Significance Of The Hands Of Achilleus - 567 words
    Significance Of The Hands Of Achilleus Achilleus' hands are a prevalent image in Homer's Iliad. By focusing on Achilleus' hands, we as the audience, gain insight on not only the character of Achilleus but also the customs of the society in which he lived. Much of this insight is not directly conveyed to the reader but a deeper look into the reasoning behind why the hands were focused on will reveal the insight mentioned before. In many cases Achilleus' hands are a direct representation of himself and whatever happens to Achilleus is shown through his hands. Often the actions to the hands themselves are discrete and are often symbolically related to the actions that are placed upon Achilleus. ...

  • The Significance Of The Cross - 504 words
    The Significance of the Cross The significance of the cross has changed over the years. In the beginning before Christ gave himself up for our sins the cross was viewed as a sign of pain and suffrage. The Romans used to execute criminals and enemies of the state on them. The were hung along the road showing the sarrows of people. It was the most shameful way to die. The pain and anguish it caused was unbearable and feared by all. Except Roman citizens. The pain and shame of death on the cross was so bad that the Romans would not inflict it on their citizens. In their society it was like the electric chair is today. Except for the fact that we inflict that pain on any human being. The Romans ...

  • What Is The Significance Of Human Mortality, According To Heidegger - 2,164 words
    What Is The Significance Of Human Mortality, According To Heidegger? Martin Heidegger (1889 - 1976) was, and still is considered to be, along with the likes of Soren Kierkegaard, Edmund Husserl and Jean-Paul Sartre, one of the principal exponents of 20th century Existentialism. An extraordinarily original thinker, a critic of technological society and the leading Ontologist of his time, Heidegger's philosophy became a primary influence upon the thoughts of the younger generations of continental European cultural personalities of his time. The son of a Catholic sexton, Heidegger displayed an early interest in religion and philosophy; at school he began an intensive study of the late 19th cent ...

  • What Is The Significance Of Human Mortality, According To Heidegger - 2,241 words
    ... Dasein means ahead-of-itself-Being-already-in-(the-world) as Being alongside (entities-encountered-within-the-world.) This being fills in the signification of the term 'care'"(237). According to Heidegger, man's existence is characterised as Care. This Care presents itself initially, in possibility: man makes things instrumental to his concerns and, in doing so, projects himself forward, into the world. Secondly there are the limitations (or, to use the existential terminology, the facticity) of mans existence. Heidegger exemplifies these limitations with the concept of throwness, a concept that encompasses the resulting facticity of our finite lives. Thirdly man seeks to avoid the anxi ...

  • 13 Were The Elizabethans More Bloodthirsty Or Tolerant Of - 1,288 words
    13. Were the Elizabethans more bloodthirsty or tolerant of violence on stage than we are? In addition to the visible bloodletting, there is endless discussion of past gory deeds. Offstage violence is even brought into view in the form of a severed head. It's almost as though such over-exposure is designed to make it ordinary. At the same time, consider the basic topic of the play, the usurpation of the crown of England and its consequences. These are dramatic events. They can support the highly charged atmosphere of bloody actions on stage as well as off. By witnessing Clarence's murder, which has been carefully set up, we develop a greater revulsion for its instigator. And even though we ar ...

  • 65279 It Is Unusual When A Masterpiece Develops Out Of An Assignment, But That Is, More Or Less, What - 1,904 words
    It is unusual when a masterpiece develops out of an assignment, but that is, more or less, what happened in the case of Gullivers Travels. The Martinus Scriblerus Club proposed to satirize the follies and vices of learned, scientific and modern men. Each of the members was given a topic, and Swifts was to satirize the numerous and popular volumes describing voyages to faraway lands. Ten years passed between the Scriblerus project and the publication of Gullivers Travels, but when Swift finished, he had completed a definitive work in travel literature. Moreover, he had completed what was to become a childrens classic (in its abridged form) and a satiric masterpiece. Swifts main character, Gul ...
