- Animal Cruelty - 1,051 words
Animal Cruelty Jeff Albrecht Joseph Aimone Writing and Rhetoric 13 December 2000 Animal Cruelty One of the most touchy aspects of our relationship with animals is the use of animals in laboratory sciences. Some manufactures of cosmetics and household products still conduct painful and useless tests on live animals, even though no law requires them not to. Some people, called anti-vivisectionists, are at one extreme in their concern. They want an abolition of all experiments on live animals. At the other extreme there are those who say that it is quite all right for us to do whatever we like to animals. They say that God gave us such a right, since it is written in the bible (Genesis 1:26) th ...

- Explain Why Aristotle Believes That Morality Leads To Happiness - 322 words
Explain Why Aristotle Believes That Morality Leads To Happiness What does happiness consist of? Could it be the same for all men/women, or do different men/women seek different things in the name of happiness? Can happiness be achieved on earth, or only thereafter? There seems to be no question that men/women want happiness. Aristotle takes the word happiness and gives it the technical significance of ultimate good, The chief good, he writes, is evidently something finalNow we call that which is in itself worthy of pursuit more final than that which is worthy of pursuit for the sake of something else, and that which is never desirable for the sake of something else more final than the things ...

- Friendship And God - 1,695 words
Friendship And God Human beings are social creatures. They strive for companionship with others. Although there are some people that might find pleasure in solitude, it seems clear that the majority of people do seek companionship if possible. Central among these companionships are friendships. For some people, this is what makes life worthwhile, the presence of friends. Friendship is a sort of goodness, or at the least implies it. When taking a closer, more specific look at this kind of relationship, one is not only able to create connotations for the word, but are also able to experience the true advantages gained through the virtue of friendship. Friendship in essence is what really measu ...

- God Existence - 1,569 words
God Existence In my life on this planet I have come to question many things that many take on as blind faith. We all know that someday we will physically die, Yet, we continuously deny the forces working inside ourselves which want to search out the true outcome of what may or may not come after death. Its far easier for humanity to accept that they will go on to a safe haven and be forgiven for all, rather than to question the existence of a super omnipotent being. Fortunately, there are some of us who tend to question the whys and hows that come before us. We question the creation of humanity and the religious teachings received from our parents, our church and our society. This paper exam ...

- Justice And Sovereignty - 1,090 words
Justice And Sovereignty Sofia Kaufman AP Government D-Block September 23, 2000 Justice and Sovereignty There are two basic questions in this world. Who governs? And to what ends do they govern? These questions raise concerns over the limits of power given to people. How much power is just? In their writings, Plato, John Locke, and Robert A. Dahl address the question of what is the meaning of justice and sovereignty. Each of them has distinct definitions on what justice is and how it can be applied to power. In The Cave, Plato writes that justice comes from truth. In Platos opinion truth is the path to ultimate good. It is supreme over everything else in this universe. He allows truth to guid ...

- Light In The Darkness By James Conrad - 824 words
Light In The Darkness By James Conrad Author James Conrad, in his short story "Heart of Darkness," uses light in an attempt to symbolize the civilization of the European world and those things which, by appearances, are generally accepted as "good." To emphasize the acceptability of good or light, it is often contrasted to the symbolization of darkness, which Conrad shows as uncivilized, savage or bad. Conrad uses the characters reactions to light, bright or otherwise colorful things and events to encourage the reader to concur that these symbols represent the civilization hes left in Europe and the goodness of that civilization. The use of light as good is seen early in the story when the n ...

- Plato Vs Aristotle - 1,335 words
Plato Vs. Aristotle Aristotle refutes Plato's Theory of Ideas on three basic grounds: that the existence of Ideas contradicts itself by denying the possibility of negations; that his illustrations of Ideas are merely empty metaphors; and that they theory uses impermanent abstractions to create examples of perception. Though the theory is meant to establish concrete standards for the knowledge of reality, Aristotle considers it fraught with inconsistencies and believes that the concept of reality depends upon all forms' correlations to other elements. Ideas, Plato believes, are permanent, self-contained absolutes, which answered to each item of exact knowledge attained through human thought. ...

- Shakespeare And Catholicism - 1,249 words
Shakespeare And Catholicism By researching the life and writings of William Shakespeare, it can be shown that many Christian values and beliefs are displayed through his literary works. In order to understand the religious content in Shakespeare's work it is helpful to first understand what the religious environment in England was like around Shakespeare's time. England, ever since it was ruled by the Romans, had been a Catholic nation. Before Shakespeare's lifetime, a drastic change occurred that completely upended the existing Catholicism of the English people. During King Henry VIII's reign, the English people were, for the most part, content with Catholicism. Through a series of very com ...

The Allegory Of The Cave The Allegory of the Cave, by Plato: Theory of Dimensions In Platos The Allegory of the Cave, allows an individual to realize that which they already know. The situation in the cave seems dark and gloomy, like a place no one would ever want to go. However, the reality is that some people are at a point in their lives where that is where they are, in their own cave. The people that are in Platos cave, the prisoners, have always been there. They all have their legs and necks chained and cannot move. They cannot turn their necks or bodies to look around them. The cave is very dark and there is a fire in the distance. There is a wall in front of them and men are frequentl ...
