Chapter 15 Of The Book Of John
Chapter 15 of the Book of John Anonymous This chapter takes place in the upper room in Jerusalem. This was during the Passover feast, though some scholars say otherwise. Jesus was speaking only to the disciples. The first part of the chapter is devoted to the analogy of the vineyard and it's branches. The second part is talks about the future relationship with the world. This is an important chapter, which deals with not only relationship with Jesus and the Father, but also with the outside co
Susan Sontag
Susan Sontag
Susan Sontag Jake Susan Sontag, in Against Interpretation, takes a very interesting critical standpoint on the idea of literary interpretation. Unlike most literary critics, Sontag believes that literary criticism is growing increasingly destructive towards the very works of art that they, supposedly, so greatly appreciate and respect. Her standpoint could not be more accurate. Reading her work generates numerous questions, the most important of which is quite possibly, How are we to take

Animal Farm as Animal Satire R?dvan Korkut This study aims to determine that George Orwell's Animal Farm is a political satire which was written to criticise totalitarian regimes and particularly Stalin's practices in Russia. In order to provide background information that would reveal causes led Orwell to write Animal Farm, Chapter one is devoted to a brief summary of the progress of author's life and significant events that had impact on his political convictions. Chapter one also presents bac
Euthanasia
Euthanasia
Euthanasia [email protected] In recent years, Euthanasia has become a very heated debate. It is a Greek word that means easy death but the controversy surrounding it is just the opposite. Whether the issue is refusing prolonged life mechanically, assisting suicide, or active euthanasia, we eventually confront our socity's fears toward death itself. Above others, our culture breeds fear and dread of aging and dying. It is not easy for most of the western world to see death as an inevitable par

Cultural Analysis On Death And The Afterlife
Cultural Analysis on Death and the Afterlife Jeff Jin Hung Tong If there is one constant in this world, it would surely be death. Dying is an unavoidable part of life. Indeed, everything that lives will at sometime die. The fear of death is held by everyone. Perhaps it is the correlation of death with pain or the unknown state of the human consciousness after death, maybe a combination of both, that creates this fear. The fear felt is undoubtedly universal, however, the ways in which it is dealt

A Critical Analysis Of King Lears DaughtersAttraction To Edmund
A Critical Analysis of King Lear's Daughters'Attraction to Edmund Unknown Shakespeare' King Lear is a story of treachery and deceit. The villainy of the play knows no bounds. Family lines are ignored in an overwhelming quest for power. This villainy is epitomized in the character of Edmund, bastard son of the Earl of Gloucester. Edmund is displayed as a most toad-spotted traitor. When we first see Edmund, he is already knee deep in treachery. His need for power has already clouded his mind to
The Myth Of The Earnings Yield
The Myth Of The Earnings Yield
The Myth of the Earnings Yield A very slim minority of firms distribute dividends. This truism has revolutionary implications. In the absence of dividends, the foundation of most - if not all - of the financial theories we employ in order to determine the value of shares, is falsified. These theories rely on a few implicit and explicit assumptions: (a) That the (fundamental) value of a share is closely correlated (or even equal to) its market (stock exchange or transaction) price (b) That pric
The Rights Of Animals
The Rights Of Animals
The Rights of Animals Animal rights is a catchphrase akin to human rights. It involves, however, a few pitfalls. First, animals exist only as a concept. Otherwise, they are cuddly cats, curly dogs, cute monkeys. A rat and a puppy are both animals but our emotional reaction to them is so different that we cannot really lump them together. Moreover: what rights are we talking about? The right to life? The right to be free of pain? The right to food? Except the right to free speech ? all the other

Parenting - The Irrational Vocation
Parenting - The Irrational Vocation There are some grounds to assume that a cognitive dissonance is involved in feeling that children are more a satisfaction than a nuisance. Why do people bother with parenting? It is time consuming, exhausting, strains otherwise pleasurable and tranquil relationships to their limits. Still, humanity keeps at it: breeding. It is the easiest to resort to Nature. After all, all living species breed and most of them parent. We are, all taken into consideration, ani
The Pleasure Of Meaning
The Pleasure Of Meaning
The Pleasure of Meaning Abstract People often confuse satisfaction or pleasure with meaning. It is one thing to ask How (what Science does), another to seek an answer to Why (a teleological quest in most cases) and still different to contemplate the What for. For instance: people often do something because it gives them pleasure or satisfaction ? however this does not endow the act with meaning. Meaningless things can be ? and many times, are ? pleasant and satisfying. A prime example is h
The Cultural Narcissist
The Cultural Narcissist
The Cultural Narcissist The new narcissist is haunted not by guilt but by anxiety. He seeks not to inflict his own certainties on others but to find a meaning in life. Liberated from the superstitions of the past, he doubts even the reality of his own existence. Superficially relaxed and tolerant, he finds little use for dogmas of racial and ethnic purity but at the same time forfeits the security of group loyalties and regards everyone as a rival for the favors conferred by a paternalistic sta
Psychophysics
Psychophysics
Psychophysics It is impossible to rigorously prove or substantiate the existence of a Soul, a psyche. Numerous explanations have been hitherto offered: - That what we, humans, call a soul is the way that we experience the workings of our brain (introspection experienced). This often - leads to infinite regressions. - That the soul is an epiphenomenon, the software result of a hardware complexity (much the same way as temperature, volume and - pressure are the epiphenomena of a large number of ga

What Is Sociology?
What is Sociology? Anonymous Sociology is the study of the issues, concepts, investigations, and results of individuals living together. While sociology's focus is on groups, this focus should not exclude an emphasis on individuals. After all, individuals constitute groups and groups produce individuals. How can we study and fully understand one without the other? We can't...nor can we study them as if they were merely in competition with each other...that's too simple. Rather, as a study of peo

Marxs Theory Of Money
Marxs Theory Of Money
Marx's Theory Of Money Duncan K. Foley The Theory of Money and the Theory of Value The most important point to emerge from Marx's theory of money is the idea that money is a form of value. The difficulty with this idea is that we are more familiar with money itself than with value in other forms. But value does appear in forms other than money. For example, the balance sheet of a capitalist firm estimates the value of goods in process and of fixed capital which has not yet been depreciated, as w

Narcissistic Personality Disorder
Narcissistic Personality Disorder Unknown The so-called 'narcissistic personality disorder' is a complex and often misunderstood disorder. The cardinal feature of the narcissistic personality is the grandiose sense of self-importance, but paradoxically underneath this grandiosity the narcissist suffers from a chronically fragile low self-esteem. The grandiosity of the narcissist, however, is often so pervasive that we tend to dehumanize him or her. The narcissist conjures in us images of the myt

One option is for victims to sue the DA in an attempt to compel him to prosecute, but this would be costly and proving dereliction of duty would be difficult. The DA is effectively immune. Other options are more promising. The law should encourage (and prosecutors' offices s

Questions for Evaluating Intervention Programs for Autism 1. Why are testimonials not a good basis for making critical decisions about treatment? Testimonials are not a good basis for making critical decisions about treatments because they are too void of concrete and proven data.

The term ?results may vary? is common

Humans cause their own suffering as an insane matter of course
In the past century dreadful diseases like diphtheria, leprosy and typhoid were halted; sterile women have been given children; numerous devices have been developed to let handicapped people participate in society. Many of the things we prayed for during ages have been achieved by means of expensive scientific research. What is hard to understand however is that humans spent even more scientific efforts and even more finances to destroy all those benefits. For each disease we have overcome, we h

Simulation A black hole is a star that has collapsed into a tiny point known as a singularity. It is so dense that it sucks in everything near it, including light. Black holes can be seen via the death throes of the matter being sucked in. Although it becomes invisible past a certain point, an accretion disk, which is visible, develops as the matter swirls toward the black hole. The collapsed star is so dense that nothing can escape its gravitational pull, not even light. A black hole is a conc

A Walk to Remember Critical Analysis
A Walk to Remember Critical Analysis
A Walk to Remember is a novel that deals with love, compassion, and friendship. I deeply enjoyed reading this book because it was very different from a majority of other novels. It carried a specific ambiance that couldn?t be compared to any other piece of writing, and it was able to easily pierce through my heart. The words were very heartfelt, the setting was simple, yet homey, and the characters were extremely agreeable. Personally, A Walk to Remember was touching, yet sometimes riveting, and

As we see the unfolding of the creation mandate, teaching tools have improved and multiplied. The new tool in education today is the computer.

The per student cost of fully employing computer technology in a school ranges from a low of $142 to a high of $415 per-student-year. Therefore, a school with 700 students can expect to spend from $99,000 to $300,000 per-student-year to effectively deploy computer aided learni
