Thinking About Stupidity In Our Scholars
Thinking About Stupidity In Our Scholars William Mason, Anti-Ph.D. The stupidity in our scholars, like stupidity and arrogance everywhere, follows a model. The model presented here was developed by Anticommerical University Professor William Mason. It applies in general to stupidity at any level of intensity. It has 5 stages. 1. Mimetic Arrogance One party identifies themselves as an authority on a subject and other parties imitate that arrogance. Examples of things scholars and professors are a

Desperation By Stephen King
Desperation by Stephen King debe1 Desperation, a recent Stephen King novel, is not just a book, but an experience that leaves the reader frightened, paranoid, and questioning his moral beliefs. Picture, if you will, a lone, crazed Nevada policeman who pulls over vehicles on a lonely desert highway and forcefully takes away their occupants. Whichever of them he doesn?t kill immediately, he locks up in the jail of the small desolate town of Desperation. Among those captured are the vacationing Car

Which gender is more likely to drive after drinking? JPS Introduction Last year a student from my high school was killed in a drunk driving accident. As shocking as the death was for many students, people still continued to drive while intoxicated. This year two of my close friends received DUI's and numerous people I have encountered have also been convicted of Driving Under the Influence. Working at a local bar, it is very seldom that I see a person choosing to remain sober because they have

The Basic Dilemma Of The Artist
The Basic Dilemma Of The Artist
The Basic Dilemma of the Artist The psychophysical problem is long standing and, probably, intractable. We have a corporeal body. It is a physical entity, subject to all the laws of physics. Yet, we experience ourselves, our internal lives, external events in a manner which provokes us to postulate the existence of a corresponding, non-physical ontos, entity. This corresponding entity ostensibly incorporates a dimension of our being which, in principle, can never be tackled with the instruments
Parsimony ? The Fourth Substance
Parsimony ? The Fourth Substance
Parsimony ? The Fourth Substance Occasionalism is a variation upon Cartesian metaphysics. The latter is the most notorious case of dualism (mind and body, for instance). The mind is a ?mental substance?. The body ? a ?material substance?. What permits the complex interactions which happen between these two disparate ?substances?? The ?unextended mind? and the ?extended body? surely cannot interact without a mediating agency, God. The appearance is that of direct interaction but this is an illusi
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

Form And Malignant Form
Form and Malignant Form Every type of human activity has a malignant equivalent. The pursuit of happiness, the accumulation of wealth, the exercise of power, the love of one's self are all tools in the struggle to survive and, as such, are commendable. They do, however, have malignant counterparts: pursuing pleasures (hedonism), greed and avarice as manifested in criminal activities, murderous authoritarian regimes and narcissism. What sets the malignant versions apart from the benign ones? Phen

Jane Eyre: Sexism
Jane Eyre: Sexism King Dingo In the cases of Jane Austen's novel Pride and Prejudice and Emily Bronte's Jane Eyre, the ideals of romantic love are very much the same. In both 19th century novels, women's wants and needs are rather simplified. However, this could also be said for the roles and ideals of the male characters. While it was obvious that this era was responsible for a large amount of anti-female sexism in society and the economy, can it also be said that male-female partnerships were

Computerized tests may be better at accurately assessing which reading skills my student needs to focus on, but a computerized test will not know why that student has not mastered that skill. It can dictate a learning program fit to fix that gap, or to propel them forward, but hitting rewind and watching it over and over will not always guarantee that a student masters a concept. So when we let videos be the only teaching tool for a child, or a computer program, then we stop figuring out why tha
