  • Lord Of The Flies : Summary Of Conclusion - 623 words
    Lord of the Flies : Summary of Conclusion I feel that the conclusion of such a story needs not much thought. It has already been shown that the boys are becoming quite savage and thoughtless, and that only a handful of sensible boys remain. Sooner or later the group would split into two different sects of people. One group being the levelheaded and realistic boys who want to be rescued, led by Ralph, and the other boys with the leader Jack and the self proclaimed hunters. Separation was bound to happen sooner or later because of the strong influence that Jack had on most of the characters so far in the story. Jack is the kind of character who brings out the evil in all people including those ...

    Outsiders Summary Annonymous In The Prince Niccolo Machiavelli presents a view of governing a state that is drastically different from that of humanists of his time. Machiavelli believes the ruling Prince should be the sole authority determining every aspect of the state and put in effect a policy which would serve his best interests. These interests were gaining, maintaining, and expanding his political power.1 His understanding of human nature was a complete contradiction of what humanists believed and taught. Machiavelli strongly promoted a secular society and felt morality was not necessary but in fact stood in the way of an effectively governed principality.2 Though in come cases Machia ...

  • Summary - 1,380 words
    SUMMARY Brand Blanshard, a respected philosophy professor, published an essay entitled, The Uses of a Liberal Education, which accounts for a few arguments against a liberal education, but stresses the overwhelming advantages to the same education. According to Blanshard, liberal studies are "the sort of studies that are pursued for their own sake rather than for their utility." (p. 121). The first step Blanshard takes in analyzing the usefulness of a liberal education is to highlight the opposing arguments. First, he examines the price one pays for an education in such subjects as philosophy, mathematics, or history. That price is that of freedom. He enforces this with the idea that 18-year ...
