The people of England regard itself as free; but it is grossly mistaken; it is free only during the election of members of parliament. As soon as they are elected, slavery overtakes it, and it is nothing. This use it makes of the short moments of liberty it enjoys shows indeed that it deserves to lose them. A political community in Rousseau's point of view should observe a system of direct democracy instead of representative, which in the English constitution he depicts 'slavery with only short...
It is strictly in relation to a defined predictability in act that we perceive and describe the unique. This results in two conclusions. Firstly we need to employ words, classifications and ideas to elucidate which elements of defined acts we are studying. 'Real life' does not relate stories or how it should be categorised or comprehended; our theories and concepts do this . All phenomena are able to be analysed in a number of ways. Nevertheless, even the most inductive study must decide what...
Millions of years ago gargantuan creatures ventured through the greens of the surface of the earth. These vast creatures are known as the dinosaurs. Dinosaurs lived and roamed free on the earth many years ago. This time period was known as the 'Mesozoic era'. Dinosaurs were one of the kinds of primitive creatures that lived in this time period. Most dinosaurs were herbivores which meant they only ate plants. However, other dinosaurs were carnivores and fed on the other creatures that roamed...
A person most certainly has economic and financial value, but those are not the only types one possesses. Happiness, being achieved in any possible way is also a value that one achieves. Measuring happiness is a subjective study in determining what values that people use to consider themselves truly happy. Happiness in general depends on many factors: the person's expectations, the uncertainty of the result, how much control a person feels he or she has over the result, comparison with other...
Introduction Epistemology is a subject which has dominated many philosophers' debates. It is in such endeavors that the issue of Islamic epistemology comes into play and its existence thus questioned and confirmed. Indeed, there is a distinct difference between Islamic epistemology and western epistemology (Akhtar, 2010). While westerners have perceived knowledge to include both divine and human information, Islam has seen knowledge to be more than that. Otherwise referred to as 'ilm',...
Human being is that complex animal whose behavior is beyond the understanding of all the scholars. They tend to behave in different manners in different situations. Even the behavior of one human being in a particular situation may be radically different from the other human beings' reaction to the same situation. This thing has made the world too diverse and beautiful. This diverse behavior has also led to many problems. A single pattern cannot be designed for every individual to follow....

I always grew up looking up to superheroes, I loved super heroes. They saved the world more than once and always had a solution for a problem, but what they never do is give up, something that we as teenagers and adults still haven't learned. Just imagine, what Saturday mornings would look like if our superheroes gave up? Someone would say "LOOK! A HUGE asteroid the size of TEXAS is hurling toward Earth! Help us Superman" and he would say "I seem to be having a difficulty day-you...
I believe there is such thing as an absolute truth. Absolute truths is a basically a set of truths that apply to everyone (Hardy, 40). This of course means that what applies to one person must apply to everyone else. Everyone is subject to the truth and it is not relative to just ones self. I believe that truth corresponds to reality, meaning I believe that even though I may not like it, agree with it or whatnot, it is still reality and therefore true. Relativist believing that truth is subject...
