  • Analysis Of The Gettysburg Address - 1,793 words
    Analysis Of The Gettysburg Address In the early days of the United States, loyalty to one's state often took precedence over loyalty to one's country. The Union was considered a "voluntary compact entered into by independent, sovereign states" for as long as it served their purpose to be so joined (Encarta). Neither the North nor South had any strong sense permanence of the Union. As patterns of living diverged between North and South, their political ideas also developed marked differences. The North needed a central government to build an infrastructure of roads and railways, protect its complex trading and financial interests and control the national currency. The South depended much less ...

  • Descartes - 379 words
    Descartes Descartes was an intellectual trail-blazer during the European Enlightenment of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. He pioneered a radical movement which shook the traditional foundation of philosophy to expose widening cracks in previously unquestioned logic. Descartes warned the masses that what they had been raised to believe was knowledge may have been based upon flawed logic. Like many of his contemporaries, Descartes was questioning conventional beliefs, and when he found them to be lacking, began to explore alternative methods. According to Descartes, nothing should be blindly accepted as the truth. Man must liberate his mind so that he may freely pursue that which is tru ...

    Environmental Activism $115 Designer Cosmetic Collection From Cosmetique -- Only $1! Environmental Activism 1.

This began an estrangement with the mainstreams that culminated in the rise of more militant groups like Earth First! Glen Canyon represented what was fundamentally wrong with the country's conservation policies: arrogant government officials motivated by a quasireligious zeal to industrialize the natural world, and a diffident bureaucratic leadership in the mainstream environmental organizations that more or less willingly coll ...

  • Greek Law - 1,629 words
    Greek Law Greek law evolved as a necessary means by which to regulate society's behavior. What had up until then been left up to the whims of each individual to handle on his or her own was now a product of fair and sensible legal procedure. It can be argued that there was a great need for such a show of order in that there existed little or no conformity when it came to retribution. As Greek law continued to be established, it also became a fundamental part of other areas of life, branching out into political and social implications. In essence, the implementation of Greek law was instrumental in determining that the legal process only takes on its full meaning in a broadly political contex ...

  • Herodotus - 1,232 words
    Herodotus As Herodotus develops his History he diverges from the main aspect of his narrative many times throughout the text. Many wonder why Herodotus diverges from the main point by introducing minor characters who do not seem relevant to the central theme. Some consider this method of narrative confusing and pointless but I believe that Herodotus has a purpose for including these minor figures and that these characters help express Herodotus ideology towards proper moral and political systems. These minor figures are developed and manipulated by Herodotus in order to express his ideas and he is able to accomplish this because these characters are flexible in the sense that the readers (an ...
