- Agony And Ectacy - 1,906 words
Agony and Ectacy THEME: When looking at the life of one of historys greatest men, the lessons we might learn are countless, despite Irving Stones fictional twists. Before we can begin to examine The Agony and the Ecstasy, we must understand Michelangelo and other artists as Stone saw them. Stone considered the artist a creator as well as a part of creation, just as God is seen in many of todays ideologies. Michelangelos life can likewise be paralleled to Genesis. At first Michael is lonely and friendless, he then decides to take up and apprenticeship and create works of art just as the Lord years to love and creates man. His creation however will face the evils of envy and jealousy just as w ...

- Augustus Of Prima Porta - 1,158 words
Augustus Of Prima Porta Since its discovery on 20 April 1963, the sculpture Augustus of Prima Porta (fig. 1) has been the subject of much scholarly discussion. Found in a rural villa near Prima Porta (fig. 2), the statue has resulted in an almost unparalleled generation of literature.1 The marble sculpture is probably a copy of a now-lost bronze statue which was made shortly after 22 BCthe exact location for this original has been a question of speculation; the sanctuary of Athena at Pergamum is one of many suggestions.2 Octavian became Augustus Caesar in 27 BC after an elaborate public show of resignation and humility.3 (Augustus was a religious title meaning "revered" which the Roman peopl ...

Greek Art Over a period of time Greek art of the past has changed and evolved into what we value in todays society as true art and services as a blue print of our tomorrow.

- Invisible Man And Glaring Blindness - 1,325 words

- John Stuart Mill - 527 words
John Stuart Mill After reading 100% of the book, New Ideas From Dead Economists, I chose to write a little summery of John Stuart Mill. I did a little outside research on the subject, because his theories and philosophies were intriguing to me. I was impressed by his change in his views as he entered his mid twenties. John Stuart Mill was born in London on May 20, 1806, and was the oldest son of James Mill. His education, as a boy, was carried out by his father, James Mill. John's discipline was extremely rigid, as a result, he believed it gave him the intellectual advantage of a quarter century on his contemporaries. Later in life Mill recognized that his father's extreme system of intellec ...

- Michael Jordan - 1,040 words
Michael Jordan Michael Jordan was born on January 17, 1963 in Brooklyn, New York and was raised in Wilmington, North Carolina. He has two brothers, is married, and has three kids. He is considered by many to be the greatest basketball player of all time (Kornbluth). My focus will be on his hardships, accomplishments, and people who influenced him. First, I would like to touch on some general information about Michael. He wears number 23 on his jersey because he considered it to be half of his brother's number, 45. He had wanted 45 because it was his brother's number and he deeply admired his brother, but he was on the same team as his brother so he needed to pick a different number. His most ...

Robots ROBOTS Websters New World Dictionary defines a robot as any anthropomorphic mechanical being built to do routine manual work for human beings. This term was popularized by the Czech dramatist Karel Capek (1890-1938) in his 1921 play Russums Universal Robots (R.U.R.).

- The Acropolis - 1,533 words
The Acropolis Elmer Boyce Architecture 110 Professor Boestler 02 November 2000 The Athenian Acropolis The Acropolis of Athens has stood as a monument of triumph to the people of Athens for centuries past. The temples within its walls were used to worship Greek gods like Athena and Poseidon. Rising over three hundred feet above the city of Athens, it can clearly be seen why it is called the Acropolis, which loosely translated means top of city. It isn't the only acropolis in Greece, but it is revered more than the others because of its almost flawless planning in where each building is placed. It took two hundred years of experimenting to get it right. Each building is placed specifically to ...

... e to "Zeus, Averter of Flies." No one knows what the sacrifice was, but the writer Aelian assures us that the flies either perished or buzzed off. The chief oath taking occurred under a frightening bronze statue of Zeus with thunderbolts clutched in each hand. It was customary for all the athletes and their trainers to swear upon a boar that had been sacrificed, that they would not be guilty of any foul play. The athletes also took an additional oath that for ten successive months they had strictly observed the rules of training. If caught lying, cheating, bribe taking, or arriving late for the games they were compelled to erect expensive statues to Zeus that carried inscriptions of thei ...
