Behaviorism - A Methodological Proposal of Explaining the Behavior - Behaviorism must be seen as a methodological proposal of explaining the behavior of organisms from the lowest to the highest. Explaining human and nonhuman behavior by reference to scientific laws and the theories expressed of physical states, events, and entities. Because modern psychology emerged roughly in the mid-19th century, information of behaviorism was gathered in its early stages by introspection (looking at your own inner states of being; your own desires, feelings, and intentions) then linking them to the outside observable state....   [tags: Behaviorism Behavior] 3387 words

School Remodeling Proposal from a Student - I would like to propose a plan to add the following things to our school building. First of all I feel that we need an auditorium to the area where the basketball courts used to be. The project will cost 15,000$ and will take up the area where the old basketball courts used to be. I believe that the benefits of adding an auditorium would heavily outweigh the costs because the students will have a place to rehearse, a place to hold large assemblies and a place to put on performances, rather then using someone else’s facility’’s....   [tags: essays research papers] 370 words

Fair Play In The NBA: A Modest Proposal - Fair Play in the NBA: A Modest Proposal As surprising as it may be to those who are not themselves fans of the National Basketball Association, Anglo-Americans are vastly outnumbered by other ethnicities. In fact, African-Americans hold a majority of positions, command higher average salaries, and receive more attention for their accomplishments in the media. Although there are a number of Anglo-Americans employed by the NBA, few ever manage to obtain equality in the field. For example, the position of team owner, frequently held by Anglo-Americans, carries with it a much lower salary and far less prestige than would be expected....   [tags: essays research papers] 1007 words

Policy Proposal for Economic Reform in Russia - Policy Proposal for Economic Reform in Russia Despite making a recovery after the 1998 market crash, Russia remains weighted with numerous holdovers from the Communist era that keep its economy from taking advantage of free-market reforms.

In order to do so, the Russian government must engage in extensive reform in several key areas: improving the rule of law, creating stable monetary policy, and ending a policy of favoritism to particular businesses....   [tags: Economics Political Politics]

Restoring Mind-Brain Supervenience: A Proposal - Restoring Mind-Brain Supervenience: A Proposal ABSTRACT: In this paper I examine the claim that mental causation — at least for cases involving the production of purposive behavior — is possible only if ‘mind/brain supervenience’ obtains, and suggest that in spite of all the bad press it has received in recent years, mind/brain supervenience is still the best way for a physicalist to solve the ‘exclusion problem’ that plagues many accounts of mental causation. In section 3, I introduce a form of mind/brain supervenience that depends crucially on the idea that some brain state-types-namely, those involved in the production of purposive behavior-are nonlocally sensitive, where by ‘nonlocal s...   [tags: Philosophy Philosophical Papers]

Humanity versus Inhumanity: An Analysis of Jonathan Swift’s A Modest Proposal - Through the creation of a pompous, highly educated and sophisticated proposer, in Jonathan Swift’s A Modest Proposal, the targeted audience, the absentee landlords and parliament of England, and the reader naturally identify with the proposer. The proposer’s rigorous logic, serious and cynical tone deduces the ghastly proposition of cannibalism for economic, political, moral, and nationalistic gain. However, through the targeted audience’s identification with the proposer, Swift is able to propose the ironic humanity of his satirical proposal and thus indict colonial landlordism in Ireland and in Enlightenment ideals....   [tags: education, sophisticates prosper]

Superiority of A Modest Proposal by Jonathan Swift Over The Lottery by Shirley Jackson - “A Modest Proposal” written by Jonathan Swift is without a doubt superior to the satire “The Lottery” written by Shirley Jackson. In order to master the intense task of writing a satire the author must put the reader in admiration, and that is exactly what Swift does. “A Modest Proposal” is an excellent piece, and shows Swift’s piercing wit and biting sarcasm. Although this satire was composed within 1729 it still holds the bite and shocking analogies in which we still are in awe upon. “A Modest Proposal” is without a doubt one of the world’s foremost examples of genius, because of the fact that Swift couriers his mastery of his wittiness and how Swift executed expressing the satire was imme...   [tags: satire, wit, example] 647 words

Jonathan Swift's A Modest Proposal and Wilfred Owen's Dulce tt Decorum Est - Literature can have many purposes including entertainment, education, or persuasion. Literature can also be written to challenge common beliefs. This idea is seen by studying “A Modest Proposal,” written by Jonathan Swift and “Dulce et Decorum Est,” by Wilfred Owen. While reading through the poems, it would be difficult to see any similarities due to the fact that one is a poem about war and the other is an economic proposal. While "A Modest Proposal" and “Dulce et Decorum Est" are two pieces of literature from two different time periods, they show a certain similarity in the way they relate to and question the views of their respective periods....   [tags: Challenging Common Beliefs, Literature]

Pastoral Poetry Represented in The Passionate Shepherd to His Love by Christopher Marlowe and The Nymph to the Shepherd by Sir Walter Ralegh - The poems “The Passionate Shepherd to His Love” and “The Nymph to the Shepherd” are both poems that can be compared and contrasted in many ways. Both poems greatly represent pastoral poetry and would be considered as pastoral lyrics. Between the two poems, they are connected but also at the same time distant from one another. Readers will notice how they differ in terms of one being a question and the other poem replying to the question given. "The Passionate Shepherd to His Love" by Christopher Marlowe is an invitation to a happy marriage life, while on the other hand, Sir Walter Ralegh's "The Nymph's Reply to the Shepherd" is answer to the proposal given....   [tags: persuade, audience, proposal, ]
