    Abortion "You wake up in the morning and find yourself back to back in bed with an unconscious violinist. A famous unconscious violinist. He has been found to have a fatal kidney ailment, and the Society of Music Lovers have canvassed all the available medical records and found that you alone have the right blood type to help.

  • Anselm And Aquinas - 1,195 words
    Anselm and Aquinas Although born in Alpine Italy and educated in Normandy, Anselm became a Benedictine monk, teacher, and abbot at Bec and continued his ecclesiastical career in England. Having been appointed the second Norman archbishop of Canterbury in 1093, Anselm secured the Westminster Agreement of 1107, guaranteeing the (partial) independence of the church from the civil state. In a series of short works such as De Libertate Arbitrii (On Free Will), De Casu Diaboli (The Fall of the Devil), and Cur Deus Homo (Why God became Man), Anselm propounded a satisfaction theory of the atonement and defended a theology like Augustines', that emphasized the methodological priority of faith over re ...

  • Catagorical Imperative - 1,590 words
    Catagorical Imperative The only acceptable motive for a moral action is that it should be done as a sense of moral duty. Is this a justifiable claim? Before it is possible to analyse whether the statement, The only acceptable motive for a moral action is that it should be done as a sense of moral duty, is a justifiable claim we must consider what ones moral duty is and if is it dependant or independent on the consequence of its action? For example we could state ones moral duty is never to lie. It is popularly believed that to lie is detrimental to ones own reputation and often causes emotional and social damage. But what if this principal causes damage itself. Truth telling for a negative m ...

  • Dangerous Liaisons Vs Cruel Intentions - 1,309 words
    Dangerous Liaisons Vs. Cruel Intentions It is my intention to compare the book, Dangerous Liaisons by Choderlos de Laclos, to its modern movie version, Cruel Intentions starring Sarah Michelle Gellar. I intend to examine how the original French text was modified in reference to plot, character, morals/values, and themes. I also plan to discuss how these transformations change the meaning of the story and reflect different cultural/historical contexts. There are some major differences between these two works, if only because of when they were written. First, the plots of both works need to be discussed and explained how they are different. The stories of both works have basically the same str ...

  • Descartes Meditations - 1,454 words
    Descartes Meditations Descartes Cogito Ergo Sum (I am, I exist) argument is a complex one. In many ways, he constructs a convincing argument for the existence of the self, and for the process of the thinking being, the essence of that self. In this meditation on his philosophy, Descartes on numerous attempts tries to convince both the readers, as well as himself, of his theory that we must reject all of our present ideas and beliefs and start from nothing. He believes that the only thing that has any certainty at this point is "his own existence as a thinking being". Everything else, which he has learned throughout his entire life and believed in, is to be thrown out because it is not known ...

  • Discussion On Classical Conditioning As An Explanation Of Learning - 1,030 words
    Discussion On Classical Conditioning As An Explanation Of Learning We use the term classical conditioning to describe one type of associative learning in which there is no contingency between response and reinforcer. This situation resembles most closely the experiment from Pavlov in the 1920s, where he trained his dogs to associate a bell ring with a food-reward. In such experiments, the subject initially shows weak or no response to a conditioned stimulus (CS, e.g. the bell), but a measurable unconditioned response (UCR, e.g. saliva production) to an unconditioned stimulus (UCS, e.g. food). In the course of the training, the CS is repeatedly presented together with the UCS; eventually the ...

  • Dr Seuss - 1,318 words
    Dr. Seuss Dr. Seuss I took an unconventional approach in the topic I chose for my reading assignment - whereas most groups selected single novels, my partner and I opted to read a collection of short stories by none other than the notorious Dr. Seuss. Were I writing this essay on a "normal" book, I would be able to pose a question about the book itself and answer it in an ordinary sort of way. However, given the subject matter I have chosen, an essay on an individual book, though possible, would be a very tricky thing to do. It would be wiser, and probably easier, to respond to the man himself. My decision to respond to the man himself makes many more choices - what facet of Dr. Seuss shall ...

  • Economic Reasons For American Independence - 1,026 words
    ... squared the difference between imperial purpose and colonial aspiration. The colonists fell, naturally into an attitude of provincialism that was well suited for the conditions of their life in America but was corrosive to the empire of England. The lack of contact between the colonies led to the development of each on their own. The English were lax in the enforcing of the Navigation Acts and the colonials disobeyed them. This was one instance of the extent to which three thousand miles of ocean could water down a policy of strict control. Burke had listed many of the "capital sources", however he might have found another one if he had lived in the colonies. This "capital source" was br ...

  • Lord Of The Flies Symbolism - 1,339 words
    Lord Of The Flies Symbolism The novel Lord of the Flies, written by William Golding, is a very symbolic peace of literature. Most of the symbols are very easy to identify and explain. One exception is clothing. Clothing was over looked as a symbol until the introduction of this symbolism project. It was overlooked because in our society clothing is a natural part of our every day lives, so even when we are reading, we tend to dismiss it as symbolizing only fashion or lack of. In Lord of the Flies clothing symbolizes order, rules and democracy. As the boys clothing turns to rags, their order turns to chaos, their rules are discarded and their system of democracy is overthrown and replaced wit ...

  • Mending Wall - 900 words
    Mending Wall Mending Wall By Robert Frost (1914) "Mending Wall" is vintage Robert Frost. Vintage to the degree that Frost has often referred to the work as his second favorite poem. Within its lines are the simplicity of language and subject, realism and imagery, humor and cynicism that combine to reveal the meditative insight that marks the poetry of Robert Frost. An annual ritual of mending a stone wall that divides the adjoining property of two New England neighbors is the setting for a sharp contrast in perceptions. As in most Frost poems, as the ordinariness of the activity is specifically described one quickly perceives that the undertaking has much larger implications. It becomes the ...

  • New Atlantis By Francis Bacon - 1,337 words
    New Atlantis by Francis Bacon Francis Bacon was the founder of the modern scientific method. The focus on the new scientific method is on orderly experimentation. For Bacon, experiments that produce results are important. Bacon pointed out the need for clear and accurate thinking, showing that any mastery of the world in which man lives was dependent upon careful understanding. This understanding is based solely on the facts of this world and not as the ancients held it in ancient philosophy. This new modern science provides the foundation for modern political science. Bacon's political science completely separated religion and philosophy. For Bacon, nothing exists in the universe except ind ...

    PSYC250 Case Study One 1. In Janets final project, one of her ideas utilizes a correlational design. In a correlational design, there is research involved. These researches usually involve using observational, archival, or survey methods to test a hypothesis. There is at least two variables being looked at in a correlational design, and these variables are rarely manipulated. Instead, the variables are determined if there is a relationship between them. In saying a relationship, we are trying to determine the similarities or differences between the variables, and the way one variable can correlate or form a relationship with another (Brehm, Kassin, & Fein, p. 36). This relationship can be me ...

  • Rime Of Ancient Mariner - 329 words
    Rime Of Ancient Mariner Does Coleridge agree with the interpretation of the moral as given by the simple mariner, as seen in the ending stanzas? After this terrific bout with nature, and the deep messages which may be derived, the mariner ends the poem by simplistically saying that the moral is to just love all things. Yet the wedding guest seemed to get more from this, as he was "stunned" and brings thoughts of this tale to the next day, a "wiser" man. Perhaps all the narration shift has to do with the fact that this simple mariner is unable to perceive the deeper implications of his tale, which the wedding guest is able to do. The wedding guest may act as a certain catalyst to inspire deep ...
