Discussions about what constitutes knowledge have been ongoing for a long time, and were extensively covered by some of great philosophers like Plato, Humes, Kant and Socrates. David Hume defines knowledge as that which occurs from experience and skepticism (Schmitt, 1992). According to philosophers, knowledge can be acquired through various sources. These include empirical knowledge that implies through exposure, observation of concepts, or may be genetically programed within individuals. As...
"It is up to each of us to make the best use of our time to help create a happier world"1. The mark of the 21st century embraced upon a civilization corrupted with greed for power. It originated a society that talks, walks, and breathes desire for power, and to achieve this desire it will go to any cost. It does not care how many innocent people die or how many people become homeless, all it cares about is being on top and surviving. Violence is in every corner, in every street, in...
Men and the other living creatures live by means of air, through breathing it. And this is for them both soul and intelligence, and if this is removed, then they die and intelligence fails, said Diogenes of Apollonia, who is credited with writing the first recorded treatise defining thoughts as a mental function. Diogenes is also the pioneer who propounded that intelligence or 'Noesis' is the inherent power of the mind to immediately perceive and comprehend an object or occurrence, some 2,500...
Macbeth, written by Shakespeare, is a tragedy that showed the consequences of Macbeth's guilt from the peer pressure of Lady Macbeth. Lady Macbeth questioned Macbeth's manliness several times throughout the story. Macbeth wanted to prove that he was a stronger person. Even though Macbeth proved his manliness, he regretted his decision. Macbeth's decision to kill Duncan was based off of peer pressure from Lady Macbeth. The character Macbeth had been told by the three weird sisters that he was...
"If the individual retains his autonomy by reserving to himself in each instance the final decision whether to co-operate, he thereby denies the authority of the state; if, on the other hand, he submits to the state and accepts is claim to authority then… he loses his autonomy". [] Therefore, the free will of each person, correlative to autonomy, and the political obligation, correlative to authority, are contradicting terms for years. There are theorists who support that...
A saviour sibling is a child who is born via pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD). This shows any fatal diseases in embryo screening, to find a tissue type match for the existing sibling so that stem cell transplantation can take place with the newborns umbilical cord. Many people believe that this is unethical because it doesn't consider the newborns rights, or simply because some cannot understand what parent's go through. This is often questioned because it is typically thought of as...
While Michel Foucault is considered as a great contributor to literature, he never provided us with a clear-cut theoretical account of the relationship between the result of his work and the study of literature; nonetheless his influence on literary studies has been considerable. But after all, this chapter is going to investigate Michel Foucault's major contributions to literary theory. He has been considered as a structuralist, a post-structuralist, and a postmodernist, but he rejected all of...
Many questions exist concerning the nature of time. People ask what time is, what causes it and whether it is a dimension. In this argumentative essay, I will try and show that time is unreal by use of emergent concept. There is a basic development of force and motion upon which time emerges; yet what humans observe as time is by and large an illusion. The human memory generates delusions regarding preceding events in life. Conscious observation of occurrences offers the feeling of the current...
Through the course of this essay one will attempt to show that Carroll's arguments do not necessarily result in being swayed to his doctrine of moderate intentionalism. This would be through looking at some of his key claims, and how they can be scrutinised in such a way that one can happily still endorse the position of anti-intentionalism. The main concern that one has is the claim that conversations are roughly analogous to that of the interpretation of artworks and one hopes to conclude...
