Hans Jonas a prominent thinker not only has succeeded in bridging the gap of science and philosophy but also has taken science especially the Biology to the realm of philosophy. He has constructed "Philosophical Biology". He is also known for his ethics of responsibility. As, one of the most prominent thinkers of 20th century, he has written on diverse topics such as the philosophy of biology,...
Through his essay The Subjection of Women published in 1869, John Stuart Mill has advocated the emancipation of women which was a revolutionary idea of his times. The role of this essay is to explain the theoretical foundations behind Mill's feminism and show in what ways has Mill been supportive of the liberalization of women. Throughout the paper I will consider Mill's view on the reason for women's subjection, his view on marriage and family, the utilitarian context of female emancipation...
For a full reading I utilise two rounds of divination, I utilise my soul map. The first round is done with my indicator stones, and will give an overall view of the client's condition. The second round is done with runes. These I use to give more specific information about the condition and what can be done to improve things. For repeated consultations just do the second runic divination. I only repeat the first round, if there is serious spiritual change or upheaval in the person's life. The...
The ideas of knowledge and understanding come up repeatedly throughout Buddhism. They are reoccurring themes that appear to be discussed together. In Buddhism, having a greater understanding of the world, the universe and all living organisms within is an important idea to Buddhists. To understand the world around us allows one to become closer with their surroundings. Understanding is a guide to one's spiritual being. On the other hand, knowledge is just a well-known thing; it's a...
His approach is subjective rather than objective and I think he makes some valid points concerning how we judge the faith claim by other people. It was right to respect the personal belief of serious religious believers, and equally right to acknowledge that what they believe to be true should not be imposed on anyone for them to believe. We all have spiritual needs that somehow, someway when put together build our fragmenting "self". Furthermore, James is not interested in...
In order to guarantee the safety of cosmetics which include harmful chemicals, many enterprises which produce cosmetics including harmful chemicals would do animal and (or) human tests, as Dutch Cosmetics would do for getting the market access for its newly developed glow-in-the-dark make-up. As for Dutch Cosmetics, it will confront an ethical puzzle: whether animals can be injected high doses of burning chemicals which will make them painful and harmed, and whether unsuspecting people in a...
Plato is known as one of the greatest Greek classical philosophers; his work has been widely read and mediated throughout the fourth century B.C.E to the 20th century. Plato was a student of the Socrates, which soon after influenced much of his philosophising. Plato's philosophical gifts such as his use of dramatic elements and his ability to engage his readers into his dialogues have spurred discussions where readers build different opinion of their own when unravelling the true...
This paper aims to briefly write about the role of consciousness in the movement of existentialism. We will discuss primarily and briefly the respective existential preoccupations of Kierkegaard and Nietzsche to set the mood of our endeavour; to which we will end by addressing in deeper detail into Sartre's conception of consciousness and the denial of it, viz. bad faith. Sartre would be treated more deeply because I hold that he is the culmination of existential movement. One striking thing to...
From the moment we open our eyes in the morning, until we shut them at night, a human being sees over countless shapes, images and objects around them their acute vision. Reality is real things, facts, or events taken as a whole; state of affairs; something that exists independently of ideas concerning it. Something that constitutes a real or actual thing, as distinguished from something that is merely apparent. Reality is what humans allow them to ultimately want to see; whether it is by...
Throughout the process of childrens growth, they tend to raise many questions that to them, seem unexplainable. Why is the sky blue. Where do babies come from. Why do people have to die? Who is God? Does God exist? Philosophers throughout history have brought up questions that today still seem unexplained. What is it to be a person? What is it to be the same person at one time? Throughout this paper, I will bring forth my arguments against the controversial theories that are based on personal...
