There are some decisions in life that are moral wrong but by making these decisions one can obtain what they want. In Shakespeare's Macbeth that is exactly what happens. Even thought Macbeth is this great solider he is not the dominate one in the relationship between himself and Lady Macbeth. Lady Macbeth is power hunger and use Macbeth to become Queen. Lady Macbeth convinces Macbeth to kill for the crown and it spirals out of control when it leads to one murder after another. Macbeth was a...
Often subtitled a phenomenological essay on ontology, Jean Paul Sartre's 'Being and Nothingness' aims to define consciousness essentially as an act of negation. Sartre's overriding concern when writing this philosophical treatise was to uphold the fundamental freedom of the human being against the prevalence of determinism. It was for the very sake of this freedom that he stressed the impotence of physical causality over human beings, that he 'analysed the place of nothingness within...
Descartes passage, "What comes to my mind from bodies, therefore, helps me to know my mind distinctly; yet all of that pales into insignificance-it is hardly worth mentioning-when compared with what my mind contains within itself that enables me to know it distinctly....I can perceive my own mind more easily and clearly than I can anything else" (Descartes) could be hard to understand at first. First you have to determine whether material objects exist at all. One may believe that...
The incessant progress of contemporary science has given rise to ethical and policy-making conundrums causing the concept of moral personhood to reassume a central role in the deliberation of "who, or what, is entitled to having rights." The more scientists uncover what makes an entity biologically human, what societal relationships humans have in common with other species' societies, and what science can do to prolong life, the more a consensus is needed for sound ethical...
"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...
It can be stated that wisdom is accumulated knowledge and is produced by our experience. An aware mind of a human (and sufficiently evolved) being can use the accumulated knowledge to relate action and result of it to a set of particular circumstances. By observing children it is possible to see that there is insufficient amount of knowledge accumulated to link action to the outcome. In order to acquire ability to establish such links between actions and outcomes children must acquire...
THESIS: JOHN LOCKE OFFERS A FINER PHILOSOPHY ON STATE OF NATURE AND POLITICAL SYSTEM COMPARED TO THOMAS HOBBE. Thomas Hobbes and John Locke are regarded as the founders of liberalism, based on their philosophies on state of nature and the political system. Thomas Hobbes provided the earlier groundwork for the philosophy of state of nature in the Leviathan, which offers his outlooks on the concept of nature. The similarity between Thomas Hobbes and John Locke only exists in their belief in the...
    I believe that religion is not necessary for morality. Although religious groups at some point, could urge people to do moral things for the society, not all of it are considered good. Let's take these things discussed in this debate (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kuzYwzGoXw) for example, "Is the Catholic Church a force for good in the world" were Christopher Hitchens along with Stephen Fry debated with Archbishop John Onaiyekan and Ann Widdencombe MP. One good topic found there...
The book is a very simple book with abstract thought which is explained in a simpler way. The book talks about law of attraction. We attract our thoughts.

It says where ever we are we live with a power. This power rules the universe. This is a hidden secret which all the successful people knew. The book says you can get whatever you desire...
Non-human animals are widely used in a lot of psychological experiments as they have been an invaluable source of information and have produced a mass amount of results. Are these experiments on animals ethical? Should we or should we not use animals for these purposes? Evidently many psychologists think that we should use animals because they believe that experimenting on animals is justifiable, however there are also many psychologists who argue against this. This essay will look at some of...
