Many critics of the novel in the early days after the publication of the novel blamed Remarque for writing for shock value.

My mouth was dry, my nose was sore, and my eyes itched from sleep crust. A huge yawn escaped from my mouth as I tried to stretch my aching limbs. As I was stretching out, I accidentally kicked my little brother Sam in the head. So much for peaceful sleep, he woke up in a foul mood. He must have thought that I kicked him on purpose b

Baseball And American Popular Culture
Baseball And American Popular Culture
Baseball and American Popular Culture Unknown Baseball is an integral part of American pop culture. Many Americans grow up with baseball, playing it before they can even count all the bases. It is glorified, taught, and fed to us. When we play baseball, we find a respect for the game. The respect we gain from playing it has turned the game into a tradition of American culture. It has formed itself into the business of professional baseball, namely major league baseball. Professional players have
The Definition Of Definitions
The Definition Of Definitions
The Definition of Definitions The sentence ?all cats are black? is evidently untrue even if only one cat in the whole universe were to be white. Thus, the property ?being black? cannot form a part of the definition of a cat. The lesson to be learnt is that definitions must be universal. They must apply to all the members of a defined set (the set of ?all cats? in our example). Let us try to define a chair. In doing so we are trying to capture the essence of being a chair, its ?chairness?. It is

Legitimizing Final Causes
Legitimizing Final Causes The word telos in ancient Greek meant: goal, target, mission, completion, perfection. The Greeks seem to have associated the attaining of a goal with perfection. Modern scientific thought is much less sanguine about teleology, the belief that causes are preceded by their effects. The idea is less zany than it sounds. It was Aristotle who postulated the existence of four types of causes. It all started with the attempt to differentiate explanatory theories from theor

Rave Culture: The Number One Example of Social Deviance Anonymous Introduction What is a rave? This is a fundamental question that, in a way, I will attempt to answer in this paper, but I will never do it. Raving is a highly subjective experience. One person's best rave is another person's worst. Any attempt to analyze rave culture must recognize the highly personal factor of the experience. It is because of this fact that I start off my attempt to analyze rave culture with a series of quotes on

Capital Punishment
Execution of criminals and political opponents has been used by nearly all societies?both to punish crime and to suppress political dissent. In most places that practice capital punishment it is reserved for murder, espionage, treason, or as part of military justice. In some countries sexual crimes, such as rape, adultery, incest and sodomy, carry the death penalty, as do religious crimes such as apostasy in Islamic nations (the formal renunciation of the State religion).

Black holes can be seen via the death throes of the matter being sucked in.

Despair, the feeling of great hopelessness and anguish, is the catalyst for pivotal character development in Like Water for Chocolate, by Laura Esquivel and Perfume, by Patrick S?skind. Both protagonists are meld by the experience of despair, albeit in different regards. The precipitation of despair itself is primarily rooted in the postponing of despair, wherein it leads Grenouille to blazon realizations on the futility of capturing the perfect scent, exacerbating his hatred for humanity.

The number of points in a line served as the logical floodgate which led to the development of Set Theory by Cantor at the end of the 19th century. It took almost another century to demonstrate the problematic nature of some of Cantor's thinking (Cohen completed Godel's work in 1963). But continuity can be finite and the connection is, most times, misleading rather
