Protestant and Catholic Reformation At the beginning of the 16th century, the Roman Catholic Church, modeled upon the bureaucratic structure of the Late Roman Empire, had become extremely powerful but internally corrupt. From early in the 12th century onward, there were calls for reform. Between 1215 and 1545, nine church-councils were held with church reforms as their primary intent, yet the councils all failed to reach significant accord. Around the beginning of the 16th century, the Roman...

"Mathematics and Poetry: Conflict or Conciliation" It is most likely that at the very first glance over the title may give you the impression of these two disciplines being the contrary forces, but, is it all true or there is something else lurking beneath these two seemingly contrary forces? Surely they are not all parallel but do share a meeting ground, a point of intersection. Obviously you might have guessed by now that I would rather stress upon the inter-disciplinary conciliation and not...
"One of the chief obstacles to intelligent communication is the nature of language itself. Discuss" Language, it can safely be said, is one of the most important tools, as well as one of the most powerful ones, that human beings use everyday. In, fact it has been said that "language inflicts (wounds) upon the thought of man" (Anshen 341), a feat that no other thing seems able to replicate and which can make language a dangerous tool indeed. If language can be so destructive if misused, even...
Kantian Philosophy vs. Nietsche Kant escapes the limitations of the apparent world by viewing it through a strictly rational perspective; Neitzsche also achieves this through the will to power of his original code of ethics.

(4+ pages; 1 source; MLA citation style) I Introduction Virgil’s Aeneid is usually “lumped” with Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey as one of the three major works of classical antiquity. Many of the same characters are found in all three poems, giving them a feeling of being a sort of set. Virgil’s work, however, differs from...
Of Commerce The greater part of mankind may be divided into two classes; that of shallow thinkers, who fall short of the truth; and that of abstruse thinkers, who go beyond it. The latter class are by far the most rare: and I may add, by far the most useful and valuable. They suggest hints, at least, and start difficulties, which they want, perhaps, skill to pursue; but which may produce fine discoveries, when handled by men who have a more just way of thinking. At worst, what they say is...
