According to Collins English Gem Dictionary, a criticism is a skilled in, or finding fault act whereas praising is an act that expresses approval, admiration of, glorifying and giving commendation. For example, live shows such as "American Idol" and "American's got talent", where the participants will be judged and evaluated by the judges. The comments may be fair or biased and hurtful. Criticizing someone does not necessarily have to be viewed as something negative because...
Animal testing is an experimental technique whereby animals are used as test subjects in many consumer products such as cosmetics and drugs, medical procedures and other research. It is carried out to determine any adverse reactions or complications from these products or procedures that might risk human subjects. Animal testing often brings up polarized arguments between the scientific community and animal pro-activist which mainly concerns about the ethical issues regarding the animal's...
Truth is a term defined as the thing that corresponds to fact or reality. Our five senses include sight, touch, taste, smell and hearing. Our senses help us to interact with the world. Without any of them we would not have knowledge of anything as we need either sight or hearing ability to process knowledge. Therefore we can deduce that without senses we wouldn't have the ability to know anything, let alone truth. Now the question is, with senses, can we always trust them or are there times...
ABSTRACT Dreams have an important role to play in the lives of individuals and the society at large due to the fact that they are capable of transforming an individual or society's life. Dreams can either lead to positive or negative impacts on an individual's life in the society from which she comes from. Despite this, less attention is attached to dreams in the society where I come from. In this paper, I am going to argue that in as much as anthropologists attach a lot of importance to...
We have closed our hearts to animals, Costello concludes, and our minds follow our hearts (or more strictly speaking, our sympathies). Philosophy, (Costello argues) is powerless in its ability to push society in the right direction as it fails to engage with one`s sympathies. Ironically, the burden is placed on something other than one`s rational dimensions, in which philosophy so frequently refers to. Our sympathetic imaginations, to which poetry and fiction appeal more than...
The First Meditation is also subtitled as "What can be subjected into doubt," opens with the Descartes reflecting on falsehoods he has believed in throughout his life and on the ensuing faultiness of all of the knowledge which he has accumulated from these falsehoods. In the text Descartes innovates an interesting way of separating the truth from falsehoods. He starts by resolving to erase all he perceives to be true and start again from the fundamentals, building up his knowledge and...
Quantum cryptography uses our current knowledge of physics to develop a cryptosystem that is not able to be defeated - that is, one that is completely secure against being compromised without knowledge of the sender or the receiver of the messages. The word quantum itself refers to the most fundamental behavior of the smallest particles of matter and energy: quantum theory explains everything that exists and nothing can be in violation of it. Quantum cryptography is different from traditional...
Hegel. (1977). Phenomenology of Spirit. (A.V.Miller, Trans.) Oxford University Press. Hegel started a project to build a "System of Science" and 'Phenomenology of Spirit', published in 1807, was 'Part One' of his system. In this book Hegel explicates the historical journey of the world-consciousness from the lower level of sense-certainty to the higher level of absolute consciousness in a scientific way. In this book, Hegel wrote a clear exposition of the dialectic between the...
Main topic and aim is to discuss need of defining art and presenting past definitions of art. Reflecting on whether definition of art can be accurate. I will move with a timeline and present main turning points of art in history and I will disprove them with appropriate examples. For fellow students definition of art is kind of enigma, we all have something to say but it is more of a personal view. We all attempt to create art, we learn about art, later on in life we might decide to teach art...
Colour is part of our everyday lives, from the moment we rise out of bed until the minute we fall asleep we see colour. Even while we are sleeping colour is in our dreams always there in our minds, whether it is conscious or subconscious, colour affects us all 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Bearing this in mind, it becomes easy to appreciate how something which is so present in our day to day lives is sure to have an impact on us both mentally and physically. In the therapy and recovery...
