An individual’s tastes are a reflection of who they are, who they wish to be, and what position in the social order they maintain. Each day members of different social classes (high, middle, low) either consume or produce food. However, the types of food and the methods of production vary depending on an individual’s position in the social hierarchy. The position that one maintains in that hierarchy is largely determined by socio-economic status; how much money they have. For instance, many wealthy individuals and families do not regularly produce their own food; instead they hire a professional to do the cooking for them....   [tags: food as a reflection of who we are] 1786 words

This type of history is broad and represents general facts and is also marred in Hegel's opinion because of the historian's own prior understandings that influence his report. In referring to the manner in which the historian approaches his reporting of history, Hegel points out, “Here the main thing is the elaboration of the historical material, which the historian approaches with his spirit – this being different from the spirit being cont...   [tags: theology, philosophy, reflection] 1876 words

Knowledge Rather than Correct Opinion: Analyzing the Nature of Augustine’s Confession and Reflection - ... Correct opinion, in this sense is not stationary, and it only transforms to knowledge by recollection. Correct opinion is more like “temporary knowledge”, which seems superficial until evidence is found to support it. The concept of “tied down” is particularly interesting. Correct opinion does not belong to a person until that person him/herself manages to fully understand and explain the meaning of that opinion, which we then call knowledge. Therefore, knowledge, according to Socrates is of higher level than correct opinion, for it belongs to the person who owns it and does not vanish as time evolves....   [tags: Christianity, Truth]

A Reflection about Eve and Adam - A significant issue put forward in this contention is a re-examination of the significance of the name Adam, (“Adham” in Hebrew). Although some use “Adham” as a correct name for the male creation of God, Dr. Trible informs us that the phrase “Adham” can be utilised as a generic term for humankind – “adham is an androgynous term; one creature incorporating two sexes.” Secondly, the scribe points out that the creation of woman was a divine proceed rather than a demand by Adam. She extracts Genesis 2:18, in which God concludes that Adam needs a “helper fit for him.” The focus being on the phrase “helper” (“ezer” in Hebrew)....   [tags: god creation, adam, eve, genesis] 529 words

In particular, autobiography and narrative promote understanding of people’s lives, the world, and improve their sense of connectedness with the world around them.
