Trigonometry Trigonometry is based on the study of right-angled triangles. This is a form of geometry that developed out of the study of the stars. It is also concerned with the relationships that exist between the sides and angles of triangles, and their measurement. Trigonometry comes in two forms, spherical and plane. Spherical is the study of curved triangles lying on the surface of a hypothetical sphere, which is mainly used by astronomers and navigators. Plane is the study of more variety
Uzbekiston Uzbekistan Central Asia has one of the world’s earliest civilizations. Archeological research shows and proves that humans lived in Uzbekistan long before 2000 B. C. The first agricultural societies developed in 2000 B. C. farmers started breeding sheep cattle and horses. They also irrigated the land to grow wheat, barley and millet. People in the mountains had harder time surviving. They had land but it was rocky and bad for raising crops. Because of that it was very important for th

Music and Math "Music is the harmonization of opposites, the unification of disparate things, and the conciliation of warring elements...Music is the basis of agreement among things in nature and of the best government in the universe. As a rule it assumes the guise of harmony in the universe, of lawful government in a state, and of a sensible way of life in the home. It brings together and unites." - The Pythagoreans.

Anaxamander With his discoveries, Anaxamander of Miletus attempted to bring the realm of the unreal to the world where common man could conceive it. As successor and pupil of Thales of Miletus, Anaxamander worked on the fields of geometry, natural science, and astrology. The culmination of his life attempted to define the indefinite or undetermined. He was the first to discover and apply the theory of the unlimited. For a philosopher of this time period, he had many radical ideas. Anaxamander be
Artificial Intelligence Artificial Intelligence is based in the view that the only way to prove you know the mind\'s causal properties is to build it. In its purest form, AI research seeks to create an automaton possessing human intellectual capabilities and eventually, consciousness. There is no current theory of human consciousness which is widely accepted, yet AI pioneers like Hans Moravec enthusiastically postulate that in the next century, machines will either surpass human intelligence, or
Egyptian Cosmogony Egyptian Cosmogony and other weirdness: The embodiment of a complex society formed long before it’s rightful time is that of the Egyptians. Their mastery of both social and scientific knowledge was without equal, even by Roman standards. From a purely technical standpoint the stone work of the Egyptians had no precedent. With few modern exceptions Egyptian measurement and architecture was unique in its perfection. Their views were strongly influenced by their god(s). This reve
Greek gods Parallelisms between Greek and Roman Mythology have many similarities between them. Each type has there own set of Gods and Goddesses, although they were worshiped for similar reasons. The following will explain each God or Goddess and explain how they compare to each other. The King of Gods in Greek Mythology is known as Zeus. Zeus was the ruler of the sky, and had the power to create thunderstorms and lightning as well as earthquakes. He was the child of Cronus and Rhea. As the stor
Greek Mythology1 No matter what you think the ancient Greeks were not on drugs. The people of ancient Greece had an extremely intelligent society. They had sophisticated architecture and a very high level of mathematics in their culture. These areas of life dealt with real things that could be controlled. When it came to natural phenomena the Greeks had certain explanations that might look eccentric now, but were reasonable 3000 years ago. In Greece’s history there are several themes that contri
Myth or Science Throughout history there have been many attempts to explain the origin and workings of our universe. Most every culture has their own cosmogony. Nearly every individual has his or her own idea of what our universe is. During our modern era of advanced scientific knowledge, we feel that we have a good grasp on how the universe works. We have our Chemistry and Physics, along with Mathematics, to examine the universe with. Any person educated in these fields will tell you that they
Are We Free To Make Our Own Choices Are We Free to Make Our Own Choices? Pre-destination can often bring up the question as to whether we as humans control our own actions. Are we free to make our own choices, or is everything we do pre-determined by a supernatural being of some sort? Is it safe to say that we are responsible for our own choices? Do we own a free will that allows us to choose our life path, or are our actions pre-determined, making our exertions useless? In a society that believ
arete in the republic Plato is one of the greatest philosophers ever. Born in Athens, in 427 BC, and died in 347 BC. Socrates taught him. Socrates not only taught Plato, but was also Plato’s best friend. Socrates was put to death in 399 BC, because of his ideas. After Socrates’ death, Plato devoted his life to philosophy (“Plato”). In Plato’s book The Republic, the main focus is on justice, and trying to define what justice exactly is. In this book “Socrates” speaks Plato’s ideas. Through the So
aristotle and his basic philosophies Aristotle was born in 384 BC.; with him came the birth of Western realism. He was a student of Plato and a tutor to Alexander the Great (Founders, 1991). It is difficult to discuss the philosophies of Aristotle without bringing up those of his former tutor, Plato. Aristotle\'s philosophies diverted from Plato\'s, and led to Aristotle forming his own school, the Lyceum. After tutoring Alexander the Great for about five years, he founded the Lyceum in Athens, G

Artistotle Janet Jones Code of Ethics Research Paper Class number 409 Frank Sams Aristotle was a great thinker who used his reasoning ability and knowledge through others to draw ethical assumptions and principles. Aristotle was once in favor of the teachings of Plato until he began to question his philosophy. These ideas lead Aristotle to years of writing and teaching his work. Aristotle was a professor for twenty years at an academy called Lyceum. Lyceum is where Aristotle began to pursue a br
Bertrand Russells Platonic Universals The consideration of Platonic universals consequently rouses controversy among philosophers. Thinkers like Bertrand Russell and Thomas Hobbes contribute reflective explanations for the undeniable usage of question-begging ideas in language and thought. While the deliberation of Platonic universals might seem to be fruitless and, at best, obscure to the layperson, it does function as a critical foundation for metaphysics and epistemology. Whether a philosophe
Cartesian Doubt In his first meditation, Descartes sets out with amazing clarity and persistence to clear himself of every false idea that he has acquired previous to this, and determine what he truly knows. To rid him of these "rotten apples" he has developed a method of doubt with a goal to construct a set of beliefs on foundations which are indubitable. On these foundations, Descartes applies three levels of skepticism, which in turn, generate three levels at which our thoughts may be deceive

He always said the importance of teaching could change the future of the civilization. And he also encouraged his students to explore the various things to learn, but

Descartes meditations are based on the epistemological theory of rationalism: that is if someone truly knows something then they could not possibly be mistaken. He provides solid arguments for what his six meditations stand for, and how he obtained a clear and distinct perception of "innate" ideas. In Medi

Philosophy is defined by Hobbes as the reasoned knowledge of effects from causes, and causes from effects.

Kants Answer to Hume Hume’s thoughts on metaphysics, more specifically causality, had a major impact on Kant. Although Kant disagreed with many aspects of Hume’s account, by writing a whole discourse devoted to it, it is obvious that it influenced him greatly. The main disagreement was, for Hume causality was analytic and for Kant it was synthetic. In the Prolegomena, Kant tries to solve some of Hume’s errors, and at the same time remove his skepticism. In Book I, Part III, § 1 of the Treatise,

He is, without a doubt, one of the greatest political thinkers to have ever existed, and his ideas and beliefs have been an inspiration and motivation for many famous leaders. Although he has known to have been a positive influence on mankind, Machiavelli has also distinguished a bad reputation that has been unfairly given to him because of a misunderstanding

In Epistemology, students are asked many questions about Truth and Knowledge. Here are two basic questions that students may be asked, "What is Truth?" and "Can we really have Truth?" The simple answer to this question is yes. Truth, in a philosophical te
Platos Forms The influence that Plato, the Greek philosopher born in 427 BC in Athens, has had throughout the history of philosophy has been monumental. Among other things, Plato is known for his exploration of the fundamental problems of natural science, political theory, metaphysics, theology and theory of knowledge; many of his ideas becoming permanent elements in Western thought. The basis of Plato’s philosophy is his theory of Ideas, or doctrine of Forms. While the notion of Forms is essent
PythagorasHeraclitus on Death and the Soul One of the most interesting topics discussed by early philosophers is mortality and what happens to the human soul after death. Of the pre-Socratic philosophers, Pythagoras and Heraclitus are the two noteworthy philosophic thinkers on this subject. This paper will discuss the views of both Pythagoras and Heraclitus in regards to death and the soul and how their thoughts are similar and differ. For instance, I will explain how each would respond to the f

Einstein Einstein’s Mind Einstein. The name itself seems to bring a vision, in modern times, of a little man carelessly clad in baggy pants with disordered halo of white hair and soulful brown eyes. Though the physical description of Einstein might not seem genius material, Einstein was a modern Merlin. Albert Einstein conjured and revolutionized ideas of space, time and motion. Scientists idolize Albert Einstein for he is most eminent among them, at least in this century. In person he was child
History of Physics Physics began when man first started to study his surroundings. Early applications of physics include the invention of the wheel and of primitive weapons. The people who built Stone Henge had knowledge of physical mechanics in order to move the rocks and place them on top of each other. It was not until during the period of Greek culture that the first systematic treatment of physics started with the use of mechanics. Thales is often said to have been the first scientist, and
Isaac Newton Isaac Newton was a well-known English scientist. He accomplished a lot during his time and influenced the world a great deal. He is considered to have contributed more to science than any other person. His life can be divided into three periods. The first one was his early childhood, he second was the time of his accomplishments, and the third is his later life. Isaac Newton was born on December 25, 1642 in Woolsthorpe, Lincolnshire, England. His family was poor and his parents farm

why use quantum mechanics Quantum Mechanics is the science of subatomic particles and their behavior patterns that are observed in nature. As the foundation of scientific knowledge approached the start of the twentieth century, problems began to arise over the fact that classic physical ideas were not capable of explaining the observed behavior of subatomic particles. In 1913, the Danish physicist Neils Bohr, proposed a successful quantum model of the atom that began the process of a more define
