The purpose of the scientist is studying elements and asking the questions about it. Then he finds the answer of the question and draws a theory which can give the answer of that question so all scientists are thinking are about question and answer. Simply they will be asked such a question that the answer is not known by the scientist and they have to find the answer of that question. It is not like that just open the book and find the answer. They have to find a solution from many possible...
Throughout the history of human kind, people have always tried to explain the purpose of their own existence in the world. But during the nineteenth century a new philosophical and cultural movement came up, and it was existentialism. I believe that Existentialism is the more logical answer about people's life meaning, there's no life after death, and it demonstrates that everyone has their own free will, as long as you are totally aware of your acts. The word was first adopted as an auto...

The ancient Greek philosophers gave us the basic categories of philosophy, beginning with metaphysics.  Metaphysics is the part of philosophy that asks questions such as "What is the world made of?" and"What is the ultimate substance of all reality?"In fact, the ancient Greeks were among the first to suggest that there is a "true" reality (noumenon) under the "apparent" reality (phenomenon), an "unseen real" beneath the "unreal...
Throughout the second part of the course, we read and discussed several major philosophical works. The philosophical ideas that we read came from an anthology by E.D. Klemke and Steven M. Cahn titled The Meaning of Life. The text that I will be discussing is "The Meaning of Life" by Kurt Baier. In his essay, Baier attempts to analyze and refute the notion that human existence is meaningless and without a purpose without GOD. Baier argues that the notion of meaningless existence...
Imagine seeing two identical people who are not twins, but actually clones. Many questions arise about how this can even be possible. Human cloning is the creation of the same genetic duplication of a being (Lewis). There are two types of human cloning which are Reproductive cloning and Non-Reproductive cloning (Also known as Therapeutic). Reproductive cloning is when the entire organism is cloned. Therapeutic cloning is when only organs and tissues of an animal or human being are duplicated. ...
John Locke is trying to justify original acquisition of private property rights. Locke argues that property in a thing should be allocated to the first person to labour on that thing. He was not talking about things that are already owned, but about things that are unowned or used in common by people in general. John Locke argues that "the first taker of a thing from the common legitimately acquires rights not because he was first but because and if and only if, he mixed his labour with...

As stated in the book, Utilitarianism, "The sole end of human action is happiness..." Therefore, to achieve this maximum pleasure and minimum harm, which results in happiness, one must apply the four main tenets:...
A model is a simplified representation of some aspect of the world. In what ways may models help or hinder the search of knowledge? Model is an apparent emblem that is made to give an absolutely clear explanation so that people can easily understand the subject that we refer to. In the real life situation, model is very crucial in convincing people because visualization assists human being to determine the aspect and quality of one particular subject. Model is useful because it gives us...
Euthanasia, also called 'Mercy Killing' and 'Physician Assisted Suicide; is a term in medical ethics for the practice of interfering or intervening in a natural process towards death. In other words it is accelerating the natural course of death in terminally ill patients, when all treatments become ineffective or much too painful for the patient to bear. In short Euthanasia is ending a human life with the intention of relieving the person from an unbearable pain. Haris (2001) precisely defines...
