Abortion Pros and Cons Essay

Abstract Abortion refers to the termination of the pregnancy and most members of society tend to feel strongly and often myopically about their opinions of abortion.

This essay will take a long look at the reasons that motivate those who support abortion and those who do not. It is hoped that this deep analysis will not only strengthen one’s ability to think critically, but allow compassion and common understanding to thrive in society. Continue Reading...

Research Approaches in Maritime Security

Security works in a multiplicity of ways simply to protect the port facilities together with ships, and probably the human life (Klein, 2011). Since the establishment of the ISPS Code much has changed within the maritime security (Mcnicholas, 2008). Such changes, although not directly linked to the introduction of the code, are because of the implementation of the code in various sections of the world. Security is a needed subject in all corners of the world, not only on the mainland but also within shores and deep into the sea. Thus, as the threats linked to human and facility… Continue Reading...

Use Of Self Images in Baroque Art

into a book. The painting features a snuffed candle, a skull, and an hourglass, symbols signifying human life's temporariness.[footnoteRef:17] [17: Ibid] Rosa emphasizes a melancholic regard of death, evidenced in his attire and circumstantial evidence, indicating the darkest year of Rosa's life, when he was forced to part from his mistress, Lucrezia, and son, Rosalvo. Fearing Church persecution as they lived in sin, Rosa sent the two to Naples, where they resided with the artist's family. However, the 1656 plague that ravaged the city claimed the lives of Rosalvo and Giuseppe (Rosa's brother), somewhere in July or August of… Continue Reading...

Aristotle’s Philosophy

A rational study of human nature is required to discover the end or aim of human life, through examination of highest abilities of human beings. A human being is a social and political being by nature and cannot live in isolation, as is evident through their ability to speak and converse with others and also by their natural craving for friendship, "since man is born for citizenship" (33). Thus, man needs these associations for a good life and good action to achieve happiness, as a "happy man lives well and does well" (34). Therefore, in Aristotle's opinion, human beings… Continue Reading...

Soren Aabye Kierkegaard

noticeable in the present age. Now what, according to Soren, is meant by leading a wholly human life? The widely-accepted founder of existentialism believes existence primarily represents a thing that needs to be molded. Those who wish to be unique should make themselves so. Such self-realization can't be avoided, just as one simply can't avoid oneself. In fact, in Soren's opinion, 'self-realization' and 'self' is one and the same thing (Obinyan, 2014), for the self will not be able to be itself until it creates itself. Thus, since one needs to form oneself, our existence is clearly a task. To… Continue Reading...

How Stem Cells Can Help Spinal Cords

protested the use of stem cells taken from human embryos, which raised ethical concerns about human life. Other concerns were raised when cells were taken from aborted fetuses, etc. Now, however, these controversies are less of a concern because scientists have learned to make adult stem cells act like embryonic cells. Moreover, embryonic cells when injected can cause tumors because they begin producing cells in every direction, essentially. Moreover, there is risk that the immune system will reject them. Adult stem cells are more likely to be accepted by the immune system when they are taken from the patient.… Continue Reading...

Struggle Between Gods and Demons

tales, Hindu myths provide meaning and context for the ongoing struggle that characterizes human life. The myths offer structure to human struggle, and also show the methods by which gods and demons make their decisions and the ethical reasoning that underlies all divinen behaviors. Enmity offers literary tension as well; for there would be no Mahabharata or any other epic without conflict. Hindu mythology describes a universe that is complex; far too complex to be resolved with simplistic endings to divine conflicts. The canon of Hindu literature testifies to the struggle between light and darkness in human nature. Works… Continue Reading...

The Things They Carried by Tim O’brien

O'Brien and his fellow brothers-in-arms in Vietnam lived and the little regard for human life are the most evident themes in the story. A Working Class War The book's title is in agreement with one of the major theories that O'Brien postulates. The soldiers in the book carry a lot of stuff. Guns, ammunition, food, water, survival gear, personal gear including comics, sweets and letters from loved ones left behind at home, make up the physical load carried by the soldiers. However, they are more burdened by the emotional and psychological load of visions, goals, past nightmares and future… Continue Reading...

Culture and Organization

work, their approach to solving problems, and so on. Culture affects literally every aspect of human life. This means that the nature of social interaction in an organisation would most likely reflect the underlying culture preference. In an individualistic culture, for instance, relationships revolving around non-work issues may not be prevalent as individuals would tend to be more focused on work as opposed to social relationships. On the contrary, social relationships in a collectivist culture may be more widespread as individuals tend to value group cohesion. Therefore, culture may affect the value attached to social interactions at the workplace.… Continue Reading...

Drone Strikes and Politics in Movies

when contemplating the realities of drone warfare from the levels of senior leadership, is the fact that human life is quantifiable. When Colonel Powell, for example, estimates the statistical probabilities of civilians -- in some cases specific civilians like the little girl -- dying in the strike, they are doing so for rational and arguably good reasons. The audience, and those critical of drone warfare, will find Powell's assessments dehumanizing. There are no easy answers. On the one hand, drone warfare is dehumanizing, placing a gulf of psychological distance between the parties who use surveillance and then kill, and… Continue Reading...

Ramayana Mahabharata Divine Incarnation

cosmological and social order through a pragmatic dharma that focuses almost exclusively on the political and social domains of human life. Those domains are best preserved and consecrated through patriarchal marriage and community life. In fact, Vishnu incarnates as a human, Lord Rama, rather than as a divine being, in order to underscore the human psychological and social dimensions of the moral lessons being taught in the epic narrative. Chastity and monogamous commitment in a heterosexual marriage are established as premier social norms. Sita is the avatar of Lakshmi, Vishnu's cosmic counterpart. As above, so below, as the husband… Continue Reading...

Communicating Effectively for New Couples

influence of cultures and genders on communication. Principles of and Barriers to Effective Interpersonal Communications Communication represents an inescapable aspect of human life. One can't just "not communicate" -- this phrase has been typically employed for illustrating the fact of constant inevitable human communication. Even when you aren't verbally expressing your views, feelings, etc., your body language, clothes, and facial expressions are visible to you partner, who will derive meanings from them (Braithwaite & Schrodt, 2014). Further, communication is an irreversible process, which means you cannot retract any offensive or hurtful words you said at a later time. All you can… Continue Reading...

Pacific Island and Aboriginal Art 1980

sacred spaces, where spiritual energy could congregate away from the profane elements of human life. Men in positions of power could become divine conduits, but female artists also become conduits for mana during the creation of art in the Pacific. Dance rituals required the use of a plethora of artistic elements including body panting, which was temporary and distinct from tattoo, which often ascribed the person's genealogical lineage. Headdresses and other clothing ornaments also designated the person's status, and provided essential mana during ritualized periods of time. Similarly, items used for war would become works of art because war… Continue Reading...

How Confucianism Impacted China

a religion at all but rather a philosophical outlook. Confucianism also taught the value of human life over that of material things: this represented the principle of the sacredness of life, which could also be seen in the rule that Confucius taught (similar to the Golden Rule): Do not do to others what you do not want done to yourself (Hongladaroom 173). The main idea here was that fairness and even-handedness was a virtue that should guide all one's dealings. The Chinese were very responsive to this because for them it was a strong philosophical tenet that made logical sense.… Continue Reading...

Platos Myth Of the Cave and Technology Today

related to the internet is the computer. Today, the computer is the centre of human life. Virtually everything is dependent on a computerised process -- from telecommunication and banking to customer service, air traffic control, airport management, health care, transport, military, manufacturing, agriculture, and so forth. Even everyday household appliances are controlled by computerised applications and processes, such as microwaves, dishwashers, laundry machines, television sets, and home theatres. Computers certainly have made our lives easier. Every day processes are now automated, reducing the time, effort, and cost needed to accomplish those tasks. But have computers blinded us from the… Continue Reading...

How Hong Kong Responds to Fitness Clubs

visual goal for individuals seeking to model the presentations of human life and beauty put forward by the advertising agencies (Cederstrom, Spicer, 2015; Tavel, 2013; Kasson, 2001). Without these agencies showing Westerners how they could and should look in order to best embody their Western ideals, the fitness industry would have found no receptive audience when it came to the market to offer its products (clothing, gear) and services (club use, sports). As Tavel (2013) indicates, advertising plays a fundamental role in shaping the way people of a culture view both themselves and the ideals/goals that they believe hold… Continue Reading...

Incompatibility Between Islam and Human Rights

such as the right to life. Quran states that the first basic human right is to respect human life. The Holy Quran states: "Whosoever kills a human being without (any reason like) man slaughter, or corruption on earth, it is as though he had killed all mankind. .." (Quran 5:32). In this case, no human being has the right to take the life of other human beings. Despite the Quranic teaching, the world has witnessed the issue where human life is taken in the Islamic countries without a respect the Quranic teaching. In Iraq, conversion from Islam to other… Continue Reading...

Global Warming in 21st Century

are somewhat determined to make this planet unfit for human life in the future. There is no doubt that we, the present generation, have an obligation to preserve the planet for our future generations. We must do whatever it takes to ensure the planet is inhabitable in the future -- we must stop clearing forests, reduce dependence on fossil fuels, and be more environment-conscious. Achieving environmental sustainability, however, comes at a cost. For us to shift to more sustainable energy sources and more environment-friendly infrastructural designs, as well as reduce our vulnerability to storms and other natural disasters, a… Continue Reading...

The Human Condition and Its Diversity

geared towards demonstrating how machine have not only influenced human life but also become an integral part of the growth and development of humans across the globe.  An example of such an art is the Human Condition of 1960 that was created by Rudolf Hoflehner, an Austrian artist who lived between 1916 and 1995 (Campus Art par, 1).  The artwork was an expression of the Hoflehner’s concern regarding the burdened relationship between the social and industrial worlds affecting human life.  Secondly, visual artists express or exploit the various aspects of the human condition through the use of divine symbolism… Continue Reading...

Immortal Life: the Body and Science

to regenerate and take part in "endogenous healing" (Tippett, 2010) have advanced the way we think about human life on this planet. As Krista Tippett, Host of On Being, describes in her interview with Dr. Taylor, "a new and dramatic discovery about the human body" is now in our midst, though that discovery has been "politicized" in a way that throws a moral question over the research (Tippett, 2010). Dr. Taylor explains that a lot of fear in the public about the use of stem cells comes from the fact that most people think of aborted fetuses when they… Continue Reading...

Ideals Of Utilitarianism

science, and human perception and innovativeness attaches its consequences on the nature of the utilitarian approach to human life. Science looks for truth that must be exposed. Every action brings about a particular ending. The endings are diversified based on the action taken. Thus, the consequences of every action are founded in its ending. They speak much about its course or the process of the action itself. Rationality seems to have a grounded theory that proclaims the best for all. This means the actions at bay have to be considerate of the results. Perfection comes with the achievement of… Continue Reading...

Apa Code Of Conduct and Watsons Little Albert Experiment

considerations of today's American Psychological Association would not permit such chances to be taken with a human life. Indeed, both legislation and an ethical code of conduct exist to prevent such possibilities from occurring. As Vollmann and Winau (1996) note, the study lacked "informed consent" -- a permission that the subject must give to the researcher before experimentation can be conducted (i.e., the subject must be informed about what he or she is to be tested on). In this case, the subject had no sense of the test. The APA Code of Conduct is clear about the necessity of… Continue Reading...

Legalizing Sale Of Organs

a commodity is less than optimal or good and human life would itself become more of a commodity than it already is. Conclusion Perhaps the most maddening part of this discussion is that there is no singular and clean solution that addresses all concerns, both ethical and legal. Keeping sales illegal may seem like the best course but the amount of deaths is going to remain high. At the same time, sales of organs would help a lot more people but would likely create or aggravate problems. There are viable solutions in the works but they are not present… Continue Reading...

Licensure and Discipline Of Nurses

it affect nursing practice? Nursing is a field that is attached to human life, also including the lives of animals. Everything that is done in this field has a perspective towards a promotion of human health, safety, and sustenance. Having such a body as a free world would be a mistake to the people. Nursing licensure enables the nursing body to act as a unit and with objectivity. It makes the nursing body act universally as a single unit, being inclusive and with one objective. Nurses are brought to one field where their deliberations are monitored within a specified objectivity.… Continue Reading...

Fundamentalism and Evolution at the Scopes Trial

different as night and day -- and ultimately neither one really settled the matter of the origins of human life, for it is a question that goes on today -- that is asked even now (Ben Stein even produced a recent documentary film about this very same subject -- the teaching of evolution versus Creationism in schools). The fact is that on the side of Creationism and Evolution is a kind of faith or trust or assent of the intellect that must be made. Some make that assent -- and others do not. One can certainly be a religious… Continue Reading...

Impact Of the Rise and Spread Of Christianity

accepted as being a result of Christian teachings. It apparently resulted from the novel emphasis Christianity placed on valuing human life. Constantine, in the year 325 CE, issued a law forbidding gladiatorial fights during peacetime. While the government continually attempted at regulating this sport and decreasing its dimensions, this was supposedly the earliest move to abolish it. Eusebius suggests that this decision of Constantine was perhaps influenced by Christ's teachings[footnoteRef:10]. However, one ought to bear in mind the fact that the initial fathers didn't criticize only gladiatorial fights, specifically, but public shows and theatrical performances, generally. In their opinion,… Continue Reading...

Artificial Intelligence and Futurism Transhumanism

human beings ever were, exhibiting all the best qualities of human life such as the ability to think creatively and critically and avoiding the tendency to view every problem in terms of a combat for limited resources or an opportunity for exploitation. The notion that AI will potentially take over the world and that human beings will be forced to cede their power to AI is a largely baseless concern primarily because human beings are highly intelligent animals and artificially intelligent life is simply that -- intelligence that is potentially disembodied and not a slave to base instincts that… Continue Reading...

Eucharist and Different Models Of Sacrifice

sharing the Word with each other. Moreover, the Eucharist represents "the message of human life redeemed and transformed by the power of God working through the death and resurrection of Jesus the Christ," (Cook, 1994, p. 96). Consuming the ritual sacrament allows the believer to internalize Christ in a potent way. As a mystical ritual, the Eucharist can be interpreted and understood from multiple perspectives. The elements of Eucharistic Communing that Cooke (1994) identifies includes the gathering together of people with the express purpose of worshipping Christ, listening to scripture to hear and understand the Word of God, listening… Continue Reading...

On the other hand, the drugs can be subjected to more tests and investigation to establish their impact on consumers. Since the company cannot be trusted in this regard, such investigation should be bestowed on an independent entity; with close supervision by relevant government authorities.

Cast Away: a Film Of Great Humanity

crash, ultimately washing ashore on an island, vacant of all human life. The bulk of the film chronicles Noland’s adventures and discoveries as he navigates life alone on the island, coming to grips with both spiritual and physical discoveries (Zemeckis & Zemeckis, 2000). Noland’s initial attempts to sail away and find help are futile, so he reconciles himself to learning how to survive on the island, via building fires, fishing, and even removing a rotten tooth with an ice skate among other survival tasks (Zemeckis & Zemeckis, 2000). Motivations of the Character One thing that Nolan does while he… Continue Reading...

[6: Benson Saler, “Supernatural as a Western category.” Ethos 5, no. 1 (1977): 38.] In conclusion, the Creation of Adam sits at the center of the nine panels that run the length of the Sistine Chapel ceiling—each depicting an episode from the book of Genesis describing the steps from man’s creation to his fall to the promise of a redeemer. The ceiling is designed to be a catechism in pictures—and that is what makes it so significant in history. It is one… Continue Reading...

of the egg. Cells begin dividing and growing rapidly: a new human life is developing. Women’s rights advocates attempt to get around the fact that a new human life is developing by referring to the child at his stage as a fetus and compartmentalizing its development into stages: in the early stages, it is just a fetus and not yet a child, and therefore terminating the pregnancy in the early stages is acceptable from a moral point of view because of is not terminating a human life but rather a process of development that, if left uninterrupted, will arrive… Continue Reading...

To make their mission even more successful they needed no food supplies because they had with them abundant supplies of Sheep, horses, cows and other quadrupeds. They would eat nothing else apart from flesh from these animals. The horses they rode on never ate burley but relied on roots. They would dig for roots. Any time they arrived anywhere they were never in need of any external supplies. This made them independent and ready… Continue Reading...

Capitalism Industrial Revolution and Social Change

and cruel tyrants,” rather than as inevitable and necessary constraints on human life (Burke, n.d., p. 137). Centralization of wealth and power in church and kingdom had prevailed for centuries. Colonization of the New World opened up free enterprise in ways that liberalized markets and stripped power from the old institutions. Furthermore, Enlightenment philosophies inspired ordinary citizens to divert their allegiances from church and monarch towards free enterprise. Rousseau (n.d.) declared, “man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains,” a cry to revolution (p. 181). Rousseau also called into question how political systems and governments arise out… Continue Reading...

Ancient Roman Civilization and the Gladiator Games

it could afford to spend lavishly on the games, waste human life and destroy the beasts of other regions; fourth was the message of opposition—the idea that not all believe in or accepted the brutality of the games, which was the motivation for the slave rebellion and the “Spartacus War” against the Roman state. All of these purposes reveal at heart a conflicted Rome: a Rome riddled with contrary impulses, whether manifested by Cicero objecting to the politicians’ use of game tickets as bribes, or manifested by the bloodlust of the priests and powerful and plebes who clamored for… Continue Reading...

Abortion Pros and Cons Essay

(Reagan, 1998). In those days, people did not believe that human life existed at conception: it was only when the movements of the fetus were experienced did they believe there to be human life (Reagan, 1998). Even the Catholic Church upheld this viewpoint. One might argue that 18th century beliefs were in many ways more feminist as the common law was founded in the experience of the female in her own physical body (Reagan, 1998). Many of the changes in how perspectives shifted were in connection with the actions of the American Medical Association and their desire to not… Continue Reading...

Bartleby the Scrivener Analysis Essay

such work being such a consistent aspect of the human condition brings up questions about the purpose of human life. Is anyone meant to sit behind a screen and copy words day after day? Verbal and Non-Verbal Communication Another overwhelming theme is the prevalence of verbal and non-verbal communication. The narrator goes to great lengths to demonstrate how his office is full of dominant non-verbal communication. Nippers grinds his teeth. Turkey expresses his malaise at his job via drunken ink blobs. Ginger Nut fills his desk drawers with the shells of empty nuts. In their own way, these workers… Continue Reading...

Artificial Intelligence and Eternal Life Essay

the two are lost in a figurative icy Hell. The ideas underlying Frankenstein are that human life is precious, that it is endowed with a soul by a Creator; indeed, the essence of the novel is that God exists, that man is not God, that God has a purpose in mind for man. Though the novel does not expressly reveal this purpose, history does provide some insights -- especially the history of the Christian West. For believing Christians, the purpose of life is to know, love and serve God so that we may be happy with Him in the… Continue Reading...

Conclusion In conclusion, leadership is an integral part of human life.  Leaders are evident in families, in schools, in workplaces, in churches, in social groups, and in one’s own life.  Indeed, everyone must be a leader of his own life as he matures into an adult and makes decisions for himself.  What makes a person successful in this regard is his ability to Challenge create, achieve, inspire, energize, assess and ultimately decide what is best for both himself and for his followers if he is in a position to have them.… Continue Reading...

Abortion Essay

in extreme cases such as rape or incest, citing the sacredness of all human life in support. Conversely, pro-choice advocates argue that women have a fundamental right to make choices about what happens to their bodies. Part of the problem relates to how each movement defines life and when it begins and how these conflicting views affect women’s right to make decisions about their own bodies. According to the definition provided by Black’s Law Dictionary (1990), abortion is “the spontaneous or artificially induced expulsion of an embryo or fetus; as used in legal contexts, usually refers to induced abortion”… Continue Reading...

Super Highway 8 Rogerian

that is applicable to the human experience because this photo highlights so many themes that are present in human life: calm, transitions, transformations, and the beauty of uncertainty (Nisbet et al., 305). One of the greatest strengths of this image is also what some might consider its greatest flaw. The image of country road curves gently in such a way that there’s no way to see where the road leads to or if there is a final destination, such as a house or estate or lake or some other geographical entity. Some viewers argue that this uncertainty creates a… Continue Reading...

Population Of the United Kingdom

remote Northern areas of the United Kingdom have historically possessed greater barriers to social opportunities. Transposing facts about human life onto known geographical structures can thus illustrate the life history of the inhabitants of a land, particularly one as diverse as the UK. The book also notes how apparently small details, such as the size of one’s birth cohort can have lifelong implications. Being part of a large, aging population, for example, can have an impact upon societal resources available to care for older citizens. Birth patterns can also reveal important trends in the likelihood of continuing on to… Continue Reading...

William Gibson's Neuromancer on Technology and Humans

of highly advanced prosthetics. The prosthetics and other technological enhancements are designed to improve human life but in most cases fail to achieve that objective; no character in Neuromancer is fulfilled or happy. Human beings have used military technologies as a means of social control throughout history, and in Gibson’s world are using artificial intelligence to achieve similar goals (Latham, 1993). Technology has no volition of its own; even artificial intelligence systems were designed by human beings and therefore bear their unique stamp and deleterious characteristics. The protagonist Case is firmly entrenched in the criminal underworld. His own unenhanced… Continue Reading...

Louise’s hero’s journey is therefore not just about the translation between alien and human life, but also about the willingness to undergo the dark night of the soul that involves her future daughter’s death.

They often address how babies can experience pain in the womb and implies that abortion is traumatic for them. New York has had a long and storied relationship with abortion, not just during the 19th century but as recently as the 1970s.

The central aim of HCDS is to hold human life in high esteem and to enhance health at individual, community and societal level (Starfield & Macinko, 2005, p. 500). The efficiency of a healthcare system is determined by materials, humans, finance and availability of safe healthcare options (Nishtar, 2006, p. 5). The nature of a balanced healthcare system is such that individuals are provided with a continuum of healthcare promotion, diagnosis, disease prevention, treatment and its management, the general course of life and palliative health care via the various sites and levels… Continue Reading...

Eternal Life Paul S Ministry

of suffering and how people can move forward. Suffering plagues everyone. To live a human life, a mortal life, is to suffer. It does not matter if one is rich or poor. People suffer regardless. It could be due to feeling lost or lacking resources, a potential health crisis. There are so many ways humans suffer. However, there is beauty in that suffering. Jesus Christ suffered immensely to absolve humanity of Original Sin. This pain that Christ felt was for all of humankind and showed that through pain, something beautiful can arise. That beauty is salvation. Thanks to Jesus… Continue Reading...

How Scientific Research Works

took Newton’s theory to help explain the why. Considering the history of human life, that is a relatively modern theory, which indicates that science is still very much a field that has a lot of room to grow. As Kuhn (1972) points out, “normal science” is that science which builds upon the work of others—i.e., “research firmly based upon one or more past scientific achievements, achievements that some particular scientific community acknowledges for a time as supplying the foundation for its further practice” (p.10). Kuhn’s point is that science is normal when it is growing, when it is standing… Continue Reading...

A society where even the government, which ought to ensure that order, justice, and fairness prevail in the society, actively participates in the taking away of life. Why should those who are brought up and cultured in such a society not take life as well? As the film comes to an end, it is Rupert, the very same person responsible for instilling in the two boys the doctrine of murder as an art of demonstrating or… Continue Reading...

Natural Disasters Emergency Management Preparedness

Natural disasters have the potential to dramatically alter life in local communities. The loss of human life reverberates through the generations, as does the loss of local businesses and the generalized economic and psychosocial strain. Yet there are also larger impacts from localized events, such as changes to public policy and political philosophies resulting from major natural disasters. One of the most impactful natural disasters in recent American history is undoubtedly Hurricane Katrina. Hurricane Katrina showed Americans the many shortcomings of federal disaster relief response programs like the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which was restructured after… Continue Reading...

Gospel Of John Prologue Three Interpretations

mediator, with the ability to transmute God’s love into a love that is received directly in human life. As such, the Prologue helps to lead the reader into the Christian cosmology. Moloney presents the Prologue in a matter-of-fact way, presenting it as the opening segment of the gospel, one of the gospel’s “four major sections,” (p. 23). Neyrey describes the Prologue as an overture, adding a musical dimension in accordance with the hymnal quality of the text.

malice. Implied malice entails intention to inflict bodily harm on another person. Recklessly disregarding human life and its value is another way of exuding malice.

Analysis Of Gospel John

manna from heaven that is referred to in the Old Testament, more accessible to all and more transformative to human life. The practice of the Eucharist became the cornerstone of John’s community, and for Eucharistic communities throughout time because of the ongoing affirmation of the dependability and reality of Jesus’s love.

Jesus therefore elevates the feast of the Passover. 3. Jesus contends with nonbelievers throughout His ministry. In John 6:60-69, Jesus also… Continue Reading...

Durkheim and Weber on Sociology

to improve. Yet neither accepted the mystery and its role in human life, in human understanding. Both examined religion, both discussed the influence of religious culture—but neither had a mystical sense. The Calvinist influence of Weber’s mother can be seen in his fascination with the bureaucracy. The Jewish influence of Durkheim’s family can be seen in his outside and “objective” view on society. Their own methodologies were not unimpacted by their own perspectives and experiences, a point Weber surely should have and no doubt did appreciate to some extent. Yet, in the end, both were negatively affected by WWI,… Continue Reading...

Plato and Aristotle on Passion

Reason and passion (whether spiritual or physical) are not to be thought of as conflicting or contradictory because the point for Plato is that they can be mutually reinforcing.

Cognitive Development in Early Childhood

theory is largely based on self-discovery, Vygotsky's, on the other hand, focuses more on the socio-cultural aspect of human life. The theory explicates more on the influence of the environment in which a child grows in and learns from. For Vygotsky, social interaction within family and community settings is the primary means of a child’s habit formation. Through what he referred to as "dialogues," human beings learn the civic values of their society from social interactions and communications held with other members of the society. Vygotsky believed that a child’s initial development is stimulated by this immediate socialization. However,… Continue Reading...

Perspectives from the Liberals and Conservatives About Government Functions

murder and they are believed to have a large potential in curing chronic diseases.Conservatives believe that human life begins at conception and this process terminates human life. Adult stem cells have been proved efficient as they have been used to treat diseases like Leukemia, Parkinson's diseases and spinal cord injuries unlike embryonic stem cells. (Lakoff, 1997) The view of the conservatives is more convincing to me because: On death penalty,the government should not pity anyone for taking away an innocent life and for the embryonic stem cells research, it is inhuman to terminate life with the aim of doing… Continue Reading...

Ocean / Marine Life Conservation

by human activities on ocean and marine ecosystems continue to endanger human life. The overfishing or exploitation of fish resources beyond sustainability levels affect between 10% and 12% of the global population that depends on fisheries industry to earn a living. Most of these affected people are in developing countries. Moreover, these human activities endanger the ability of the ocean or marine areas to regulate climate. Currently, the world has experienced significant increases in water temperatures and ocean acidification, which have significant ramifications. Given the devastating impacts and threats to ocean and marine ecosystems, the issue of ocean/marine life… Continue Reading...
