People were to love each other, and there was happiness and bliss. The hippie philosophy, though, didn’t just create itself. The hippie movement was revolutionized by Eastern influence in the areas of spirituality, music, theater, art, and drugs. The views of the East made the hippie culture more than just a small group of extremists.

On the nights of February 13-14 in 1944 the city of Dresden, Germany was subjected to one of the worst air attacks in the history of man. By the end of the bombing 135,000 to 250,000 people had been killed by the combined forces of the United States and the United Kingdom.

Song of the Unsung Antihero Abstract: The sober treatment of a lowly, unheroic protagonist in Arthur Miller\'s Death of a Salesman flatters the audience. The more obvious way that it flatters us is by alienating us from the protagonist in his downfall so that we watch his destruction from a secure vantage. Less obviously, the form of the play, typical of modern American tragedy, romanticizes the protagonist through what I call the audience\'s paradox, that tension created when a serious work of

Love is the most amazing, affectionate feeling that can be experienced. According to the Encarta Encyclopedia, love is an emotion that is “explored in philosophy, religion, and literature, often as either romantic love, the fraternal love of others, or the love of God.” The actual definition of romantic love has been knowingly

St Augustine
St Augustine Saint Augustine, who lived in the late 4th and early 5th centuries, created a very interesting perspective on the notion of evil. Augustine first views of evil followed the doctrine of the Manichaen Dualists’. Their idea was that there were two omnipotent forces, good and evil, constantly fighting. Both forces, according to the Manichaen Dualists’, were of equal power. Augustine later rejected this idea and developed his own theory on the nature of evil. Saint Augustine’s view conce

It attempts to ask questions which seemingly can never be answered empirically nor by observation or experiment.

Second, one determines whether rational beings would will it to be a universal law. Once it is clear that the maxim passes both prongs of the test, there

tess of the drbervilles Thomas Hardy was considered a fatalist. Fatalism is a view of life which insists that all action everywhere is controlled by nature of things or by a power superior to things. It grants the existence of fate, a great impersonal, a primitive force, existing from all eternity, absolutely independent of human wills, superior even to any god whom humans may have invented. The power of fate is embracing and is more difficult to understand than the gods. The scientific parallel

Whether it is Calvacante dei Calvacanti struggling to see what happened to his son, the diviners in Hell condemned to walk backwards, or the blind Sapia in the second terrace of Purgatorio, the contrapasso of these characters does not allow them to see. Such a punishment is caused because, at any given moment of their lives, these characters have denied God-th

In the Islamic tradition, it was adopted by Al-Kindi, and Ibn Rushd (Averroes). The argument has several forms, the basic first-cause argument runs as follows. Every event must have a cause, and each cause must in turn have its own cause, and so forth. Hence, there must either be an infinite regress of causes

The Failings of Future of an Illusion In Sigmund Freud’s The Future of an Illusion, Freud suggests that humanity is driven by instinctual wishes that they suppress, such as incest, cannibalism, and a lust for killing. What keeps humanity from acting upon these wishes, and resulting in the break down of civilization, are the moral laws of that civilization. In European/Western civilization these moral laws are based on religion, specifically Christianity and Judaism. Religion creates a moral syst
