Different Definitions of the Word "Pious" Depicted in Plato's Socratic Dialog Euthyphro - Plato's Socratic dialog Euthyphro is in many ways archetypal of the sort of philosophy that Socrates is thought to have been interested in. In it (as in most classic 'Socratic dialogs'), Socrates seeks out a person who claims to have a certain sort of knowledge. He then proceeds to show that these experts do not possess this knowledge by getting them to contradict themselves. With this in mind, I will discuss the three definitions of the word 'pious' that the character Euthyphro gives to Socrates, and Socrates' problems with each of these definitions....   [tags: Euthyphro] 1244 words

War as a Form of a Dialog between Cultures - If we are talking about dialogue, the first thing that comes into our mind is verbal, oral dialogue. And a good example of this in contemporary cultural context is translation. However, this is fairly new form of communication and the three much earlier and older ones are: war, love and trade.

A good illustration for this is marriage, which clearly belongs to the love-discourse....   [tags: World Cultures] 761 words

The Differences and Similarities Between Plays - The Differences and Similarities Between Plays Plays express different plots, yet authors use similar writing methods to convey a particular point.

The Legend of Colton H Bryant - I very much enjoyed The Legend of Colton H. Bryant by Alexandra Fuller.

For example, in the first chapter, Colton was being bullied and harassed. Even though he was crying, he made it lighter by chanting his mantra “‘Mind over matter. I don’t mind so it don’t matter.’” (Fuller 7) There are other examples of Colton behaving in this matter....   [tags: Alexandra Fuller, characters, writing style]

Suicide in A Perfect Day for Bananafish by J. D. Salinger - A Perfect Day for Bananafish follows the events leading up to the eventual suicide of Seymour Glass. In the story, Seymour is described as a lost spirit who sees himself as being fundamentally different from his social environment following his wartime experience; he leaves the war “seeing-more” and as a result, awakens to find that he has lost touch with the material world.

Phaedo by Plato - ... Socrates first establishes the existence of an underworld based on an ancient idea that souls that are born come from there; essentially, they are born from the dead. The argument continues that if the living come back from the dead, the souls must be in existence in that realm which for Socrates is proof that the living only come from the dead (Phaedo 70d). He then extends this reason to all plants, animals, and things that come to be. Socrates expounds this logic using the argument that “if something smaller comes to be, it will come from something larger before, which became smaller” (Phaedo 69e)....   [tags: last conversation of Socrates]

It is because Arlette constantly undermines Yvonne’s positive attributes by contentiously implying that Yvonne is not worthy of a boyfriend or a husband. Arlette is immensely restricting her relationship with her sister from advancing because of her demeaning nature. If Arlette would stop demeaning the value of Yvonne then Yvonne would not feel like she is always competing with Arlette....   [tags: relationship, desructive, sisiter]

If there were further doubt that a writer draws from their own lives to create their tales, James Baldwin himself states "One writes out of one thing only -- one's own experience."

Citizen`s Engagement in Democratics - ... The associations have a great role because they should contribute to coordinate different interests and powers. Using this normative conception, the UNFCCC negotiation does not appear democratic or efficient because, instead of a coordinated action, the environmental organizations have a disruptive behaviour . On the other side, the governments do not promote dialogue with NGOs organizations and tend to close the process to civil society. Comparing the UNFCCC negotiation with this theoretical model, the relationship between democracy and efficiency appears to be mutually beneficial because the increasing coordination among actors improves the degree of democracy and could contribute to...   [tags: Associations, NGO] 647 words
