Racial Hatred in Notes of a Native Son - “Notes of a Native Son”: Baldwin’s Essay on the Disease of Racial Hatred Racism is an ugly word that churns up strong emotions whenever it is mentioned. Shocking images of lynchings, church bombings and race riots creep into the mind, and cause an almost physical reaction of repulsion and disgust. History books and old television clips do a good job of telling the story of racial hatred in America, but not what it actually felt like to be an African American during those times. James Baldwin, a noted African American author from New York in the 1950s and 1960s, knew what it was like to experience years of unrelenting, dehumanizing racial injustice....   [tags: James Baldwin]

The Great Chain of Being - A.O. Lovejoy begins his introduction to The Great Chain of Being by attempting to explain what is meant by the study of the history of ideas. In doing this, he is referring to "something at once more specific and less general than the history of philosophy." The key difference lies in the units of which each is made. The history of philosophy contains concepts and movements that must be broken down into smaller fragments, or unit ideas. According to Lovejoy, the history of ideas is comparable to analytical chemistry; the primary focus of the historian is to separate the individual units from the greater picture or, in terms of analytical chemistry, to isolate them into their comp...   [tags: A.O.

Another computing instrument, the astrolabe, was also in use about 2,000 years ago for navigation. Blaise Pascal is widely credited with building the first "digital calculating machine" in 1642. It performed only additions of numbers entered by means of dials and was intended to help Pascal's father, who was a tax collector.

Thinkers began to challenge authorities, including great teachers such as Aristotle and Plato, and through skepticism the modern world began.

John Stuart Mill’s Education - John Stuart Mill’s Education John Stuart Mill’s education was intense at all times, but at different stages in his life he learned different things and in different ways. Though his education was unique by all accounts, it embodied many virtues that modern educational systems strive to include. These include: close parent involvement and one-on-one work between students and teachers; exposure to intellectual role models; emphasis on independent thought, logic, and pursuing curiosities; being held to high standards for achievement; being free from invidious comparisons to peers; and learning the value of seeking out peers for intellectual support and stimulation....   [tags: John Stuart Mill Education Essays] 1779 words

Definitions of Learning Styles - Definitions of Learning Styles Although learning style may be simply defined as the way people come to understand and remember information, the literature is filled with more complex variations on this theme. James and Gardner (1995), for example, define learning style as the "complex manner in which, and conditions under which, learners most efficiently and most effectively perceive, process, store, and recall what they are attempting to learn" (p. 20). Merriam and Caffarella (1991) present Smiths definition of learning style, which is popular in adult education, as the "individuals characteristic way of processing information, feeling, and behaving in learning situations" (p....   [tags: Education Vocational Essays]

Transformative Learning in Adulthood - Transformative Learning in Adulthood A defining condition of being human is that we have to understand the meaning of our experience. For some, any uncritically assimilated explanation by an authority figure will suffice. But in contemporary societies we must learn to make our own interpretations rather than act on the purposes, beliefs, judgments, and feelings of others. Facilitating such understandings is the cardinal goal of adult education. Transformative learning develops autonomous thinking....   [tags: Adult Education Educate Essays]

law in political science - “The law, then, is a language that lawyers and judges use when they try to prevent or resolve problems–human conflicts– using official rules made by the state as their starting point” (Carter, 6). “Viewing individual autobiographies over a sweep of time reveals the variety of ways in which rights can become active or remain inactive” (Engel, 13). Reason in Law and Rights, Remembrance and the Reconciliation of Difference both examine the way that law affects daily life. They have a wide range of situations in which they have examined law and to some extent have both reached the same conclusions when it comes to the issue of law being uncertain and ambiguous....   [tags: essays research papers fc]

Words and Meaning - Words and Meaning How do words bear meaning. The notion that a word means what it stands for – its denotation - will be examined and found wanting because logical analysis is only able to illuminate limited areas of language. It will be then suggested that metaphysical speculations about the sort of entities named by words are at best unhelpful. The idea that words get their meaning from the way they are used in public discourse will then be introduced as potentially more useful, although some problems with this approach will also be noted....   [tags: Philosophy of Language]

Cubism - Cubism      Before the twentieth century, art was recognized as an imitation of nature. Paintings and portraits were made to look as realistic and three-dimensional as possible, as if seen through a window. Artists were painting in the flamboyant fauvism style. French postimpressionist Paul Cézannes flattened still lives, and African sculptures gained in popularity in Western Europe when artists went looking for a new way of showing their ideas and expressing their views. In 1907 Pablo Picasso created the painting Les Damsoilles d'Avignon, depicting five women whose bodies are constructed of geometric shapes and heads of African masks rather then faces....   [tags: Art History Cubism Arts Painting Essays]

Chromatography - Chromatography is a separation technique in which the mixture to be separated is dissolved in a solvent and the resulting solution, often called the mobile phase, is then passed through or over another material, the stationary phase. The separation of the original mixture depends on how strongly each component is attracted to the stationary phase. Substances that are attracted strongly to the stationary phase will be retarded and not move alone with the mobile phase. Weakly attracted substances will move more rapidly with the mobile phase....   [tags: essays research papers] 672 words
