    ... e of Hermetic theory and the consciousness in the alchemical mind that what might with success be applied to nature could also be applied to man with similar results. Says Mr. Waite, "The gold of the philosopher is not a metal, on the other hand, man is a being who possesses within himself the seeds of a perfection which he has never realized, and that he therefore corresponds to those metals which the Hermetic theory supposes to be capable of developing the latent possibilities in the subject man." At the same time, it must be admitted that the cryptic character of alchemical language was probably occasioned by a fear on the part of the alchemical mystic that he might lay himself open t ...

  • Candide - 580 words
    Candide Candide (Journal) Character: Candide Candide seemed to be a very nave person, but he wasnt what you would call a bad person. What I dont understand is how he was casted out from a fine castle, and he was basically forgotten about. Even though Candide and Cunegonde were caught being intimate whith each other, was this worth his emancipation? And what was so unique about the differences of Candides seventy-one quarterings to Cunegondes seventy-two quarterings. Does it really make that much of a difference? An issue that I cam still trying to deal with, is why Candide was treated so badly in many of the places he visited. For one example, is when Candide was amongst the Bulgars. At firs ...

  • Law: An Overview Human Nature Consists Of Three Basic Components These Are To Live, To Propagate And To Dominate If Humanity - 981 words
    LAW: an Overview Human nature consists of three basic components. These are to live, to propagate and to dominate.

Patrick Moynihan, a senator from New York, has written a book on this subject called On the Law of Nations.

Around 1512, Luther fell into a depression. He was plagued by the feeling that he was unable to fulfill God's wishes. But from this depression sprang illumination. Luther began to develop ideas which would eventually become the groundwork for Protestantism. He saw the theory of original sin and redemption for it as a selfish form of idolatry. He cited Paul's Epistle to Rome as showing God to be a beneficent creator filled with love, not condemnation. The forgiveness of sin wasn't a holy ritual which miraculously wiped away a person's si ...

  • Voltaires Candide - 1,727 words
    VoltaireS Candide Voltaire's most classic work, Candide, is a satiric assault on most everything that was prevalent in society during the author's lifetime. The entire novel can be regarded as a bleak story where every character compares life stories to see whose life is worse. Just when the novel cannot get anymore morbid or depressing, it does, to a much greater degree. While Candide is generally considered a universal denunciation, it is optimism that Voltaire is attacking to the greatest degree. However, there are numerous other satirical themes throughout the novel worth discussing. These other areas of mockery include aristocratic snobbery, religious bigotry, militarism, and human natu ...
