The Common Sense pamphlet was written by Thomas Paine he was an editor for the Pennsylvanian magazine. The Declaration of Independence was written by Thomas Jefferson.

As a founding father, and one of the first famous Americans, Benjamin Franklin’s illustrious title of “self-made man” rests well within and without United States. Although Franklin well deserves this fame, long passed down in a digestible title that seems to describe him just as much as it describes the foundation of America, it is important to understand how these two stories, albeit similar in many ways, do, in fact, differ. The American tale was initially that of religious sects finding safe haven on the shores of New World, or in other words, freedom to practice religion. But as populations increased, it was inevitable that America would come to be defined by the availability of profits and goods, also known as economic freedom. Franklin happened to break ground for his career at the very time this second phase of the American story took place.
It was dominated by social antagonism between the bourgeoisie and the aristocracy. The paper aims at providing an insight into the factors that caused the French revolution and the themes that emerged during the revolution. It further explores the significance of the revolution and its significance to date towards our system of thinking and interaction.

I think that Martin Luther’s life and accomplishments have had the greatest impact on our modern world. “Martin Luther began the Reformation in the early sixteenth century” (171-174). He also wrote the 95 thesis. Without Martin Luther today may not be anything like it is, everyone may have had to be only one religion, people may not have been able to express their feeling the way we can now. “By 1520 Luther had begun to move toward a more definite break with the Catholic Church” (174).
Consequently, the context became fundamental and it represents the starting point for the description of the events. Le Père Goriot is set in 1819, after the Napoleon defeat and when the industrial revolution started. It was a period of great revolution and changes between the hierarchy of the social classes and Balzac aims to represent the various tensions of that period, especially in Paris. Moreover, in the Avant-Propos Balzac affirm that the novelist should be the secretary of the history, he tells us the story from a scientific point of view because he added that the novelist has to study the humanity as the biologist study the animals. Hence, this essay discusses the fact that the context of the novel and the description of the social tension can be defined as the realistic part of the novel which are intertwined in the plot and in the fictional characters who have a connection to the real life.
The last lines of the novella, Candide, a satirical piece, are “but let us cultivate our garden” (Voltaire, 221). Written by Voltaire, who was a French philosopher during the Enlightenment, he mocks and ridicules Leibniz’s idea of philosophical optimism. By “our garden”, Voltaire really means ourselves. The cultivation of ourselves is to learn from the world and it’s mistakes, and then create a path that will call for a desired and fine life. Many examples of this are seen throughout the short story.
The Enlightenment was a cultural movement, which occurred during the 18th century, characterised by loss of faith in traditional religion and a turn towards human rights, politics and science. The ideas of the Enlightenment were highly influenced by many French philosophers, such as Voltaire, who highly contributed in displaying his philosophies to the world. François-Marie Arouet, known as Voltaire, considered to be one of the greatest Enlightenment writer, was a French Philosopher and writer born in November 21, 1694 in Paris, son of a minor treasury official. Voltaire received great education being born in a middle class family, and was sent to a Jesuit Collège called Louis-le-Grand from 1704 to 1711.
The article takes on the German Idealism and influences by Schelling in the section called Jung and Schelling (Bishop, 2012, p. 337). The arguments made in this section relates to the location in other texts that describe the relationship that these influential people had with Schelling’s ideas on such topics as the unconscious. In reading the sections contents we find that comments regarding the subtle references to Schelling and other German thinkers abound. We are then asked to understand the issues and subtleties between the philosophies of these
The term is utilized to portray intense power governmental issues with no space for optimism. With realpolitik as his style, Bismarck would get to be one of the summoning figures of German history. With the ruler 's endorsement, Bismarck announced that he would manage without the assent of parliament and without a legitimate spending plan. Those activities were in direct infringement of the constitution. A brisk triumph expanded national pride among Prussians.
Edgar Allan Poe wrote multiple pieces of literature during his lifetime. He wrote many poems, short stories, one novel, one textbook, as well as hundreds of essays and reviews. Poe was most famous for his poem “The Raven” during his lifetime. “The Raven” was published in 1845
Even though in my opinion, throughout the history, art was, in great part, always used to convey messages and as a means to impose ideas, in the particular cases of Neoclassical and Romantic movements this conspicuous intent raises to the eyes of a trained observer. Not surprisingly, both styles share their origins in a revolutionary France and echoed Nicolas Poussin 's 17th century classicism as a form to put rationalism before the sensuality observed in the Rococo (Gersh-Nesic, n.d., para. 1). In that moment of history, France was experiencing the dualism between monarchy and republican ideals. As McCoy (n.d.) puts, Neoclassical pioneer painter Jacques-Louis David 's Oath of the Horatii (Figure 1 oil on canvas, 3.3 x 4.25m, commissioned by Louis XVI, painted in Rome, exhibited at the salon of 1785 -- today in the Musée du Louvre), could be interpreted as designed in order to "rally republicans (…) by telling them that their cause will require the dedication and sacrifice of the Horatii" (para. 10).
In England, Stuart absolutism conflicted with parliamentary cases, and Anglican Protestantism with Puritanism. Amid this period, John Milton rose to unmistakable fame as an artist and humanist scholarly. After the English Civil War, he served as a Puritan official, his literary profession reaching a state of perfection with his clear verse stories, including Paradise Lost. In the midst of the Restoration, Bunyan proceeded with the Protestant artistic convention with his sacred moral story, Pilgrim 's Progress. John Bunyan proceeded with his Protestant literary tradition with his otherworldly fable Pilgrims Progress
One of the most popular however, is the genre of Drama ("JiffyNotes"). As was many times the case, the writers would depict their own lives as the subject of the stories they were writing.
