Carter and Religion
Carter and Religion In his book, The Culture of Disbelief, author Steven Carter attempts to reconcile two modern concerns: religious significance and the importance placed on logical reasoning and understanding. He attempts to explain how religiously dedicated people can also be intelligent, rational persons who should be taken seriously. He does this continually emphasizing his own astuteness and concurrent piousness. In this passionately argued polemic-which Carter, a black Episcopalian, back...

No Exit and its Existentialist Themes
I would like to take this opportunity to discuss Jean Paul Sartre\'s philosophy and it\'s integration into his play "No Exit". Embedded within the character interactions are many Sartrean philosophical themes. Personal attributes serve to demonstrate some of the more dominant ideas in Sartre\'s writings. Each of the three characters in the play show identifiable characteristics of sexual perversion, bad faith, and interactions of consciousness. This play takes an interesting setting, that of th...

"These are the houses of cats and dogs. There are no doors or windows so the animals can come and go as they please" is what my father used to tell me when I would ask about the bombed out buildings by our apartment in Beirut, Lebanon. Eighteen years have passed since the last time I tasted the best hot chocolate I have ever had, used sign language when playing with my Lebanese friends and slept in the bath tub of our house during a night of bombings. Eighteen years ago I embarked on a journey...

Gay Priests struggle with Vatican’s Rules
I chose this article in the New York Times because it is a moral issue which is stirring up controversy in religion and media. In the rapid change of social norms in today’s world, we are given a topic that mixes both the new generation of people and the old traditional way of living. My evaluation of this subject has left me in an interesting situation; and caught between moral or social customs.

Effect of Music on the Adolescent
According to (Donald F. Roberts et al, 2003), At the simplest, most global level, people of all ages listen to music because it provides pleasure; for adolescence this pleasure can be powerful and tends to be associated with the most intense experiences of life. I chose this subject because it was one which I could relate to and provide a more in-depth personal input on. Music, in my opinion, plays a role in every decision a person makes, and every goal a person has; a person’s life can unfold...

Animal Testing in the Cosmetic Industry
Dr. Frank Meehan picked up Charlie, the frail brown monkey and placed him into what would soon be his coffin. Charlie was screaming hysterically almost knowing that his time had come in the small research laboratory for a common cleaner product. Charlie had seen many of the other animals die the same agonizing death that he envisioned himself to be receiving soon. What would it be this time? Pumping the cleaner into his stomach or pouring it directly on his skin to study the burning of tissue?...

Comfority in Dead Poets Society
“In joining the Dead Poets’ Society the boys have simply replaced one sort of conformity for another.” In the text, “The Dead Poets Society”, we are introduced to the notions of conformity, authority and freedom. Conformity is perceived as keeping to accepted rules or customs. In the film, we are shown many images of conformity in numerous circumstances. The school is operated on the notion of conformity and later in the film we are shown a group of students that rebel against their stringent s...

Integrating Care and Justice: Moral Development
Part One: The criticisms of Kohlberg\'s moral development stages seem to center around three major points, his research methods, the "regression" of stage four, and finally his goals. The first criticism that I would like to address is that of his research methods. Kohlberg is often criticized for not only his subject selection, but also the methods by which he tries to extricate data from those subjects. His initial study consisted of school boys from a private institution in Chicago. The prob...

A Good Man it's Hard to Find
A Good Man it\'s Hard to Find A Good Man is Hard to Find To the inexperienced, the writing of Flannery O\'Connor can seem at once cold and dispassionate, as well as almost absurdly harsh and violent. Her short stories normally end in horrendous, freak fatalities or, at the very least, a character\'s emotional devastation. In reality, her writing is filled with meaning and symbolism, hidden in a flawless narrative style that is not biased, dogmatic, or of personal belief. Flannery O\'Connor is a...

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde: Evil Will Prevail
In the 1886 classic, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, author Robert Louis Stevenson creates a mysterious tale of good versus evil and the dual nature of man. It is for the reader to decide if good or evil prevails in the end. In this argumentation, evil prevails. Jekyll asserts, “Man is not truly one, but truly two,” in other words every man has the ability to be good or evil. But Dr. Jekyll’s potion, which he hoped would separate the two good and evil elements, succeeds only in bri...

Macbeth vs Hamlet
Thesis: Shakespeare used the same definition of tragedy when he wrote Macbeth, and when he wrote Hamlet; Shakespearean tragedies use supernatural incidents to intrigue the reader\'s interest, and his plays consist of a hero that has a tragic flaw (sometimes the want for the supernatural) which causes him to make a fatal mistake. I. Introduction II. Spirits III. Comparison IV. Conclusion Shakespeare always used the same elements of tragedy when he wrote his tragedies. These tragedies can be comp...

Anorexia Nervosa
(Part 1) Over the years, anorexia nervosa has become an increasingly common and threatening disease. The reason I am interested in researching this eating disorder is because I’ve known several of my friends to start out on a diet, not see results, and make futile attempts at self-starvation. Luckily, none have ever pursued this path for long, and medical or psychiatric help was deemed unnecessary. My interest lies in the differences between my friends’ insecurities, and the mindset of someone...

I used to think being a guy would be so much easier then being a girl. Never worrying about the constant need to meet perfection or attaining a social expectation.

Zoroastrianism is one of the oldest living religions. It was the religion of the ancient Persian Empire. Its origins are a mystery. Today, it is a relatively small religion with only about 250,000 followers. Even so, this religion cannot be overlooked because of its great contributions to Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.

In Samuel Taylor Coleridge\'s poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, the author uses the story of a sailor and his adventures to reveal aspects of life. This tale follows the Mariner and his crew as they travel between the equator and the south pole, and then back to England. The author\'s use of symbolism lends the work to adults as a complex web of representation, rather than a children\'s book about a sailor. First, in the poem, the ship symbolizes the body of man.

Feudalism - How it Worked
Feudalism began between the 8th and 9th centuries. It was first recognized in France, and later spread to most countries of western Europe. When Charlemagne died there was no strong ruler to take his place. That was when feudalism was established as the main system of government and way of life in Medieval Europe. Europe was politically divided. It was hit by several invasions of the Vikings, the Magyars, Muslim pirates, and others. People could no longer look to a central ruler for protection....

Sunset on the Sea
The Sun begins to set slowly. The Orange red blob rolls down the sky. The waves break gently into white foam on the black beach. The small crystals in the sand sparkle and glow brilliantly orange, with the sunrays. The soft sand cushions the feet. The Now red sun is cut in half by the gentle sea. The beams redden the coconut trees, which sway gently in the wind. The seagulls ride with the wind, dipping in and out Of The Sea in search of food. The sailboats bob like toys on the water.

Stem Cells: Could This Be The Cure For Cancer?
Stem Cells: Could this be the technology to cure cancer? By: Ali Ridha Stem cells could be the greatest medical advance in history in the sense that most of our serious diseases can be cured. Stem cells have the potential to morph into other cell types in the body. Serving as a sort of repair system for the body, they can theoretically divide without limit to replenish other cells as long as the person is living. During mitosis, each new cell has the potential to either remain a stem cell or be...
