Throughout Europe, specifically France, in 1600’s through 1800’s, it was a time of change for the people there. But for something to become different, many people must work to change it. For example, in the Age of Absolutism there were many governments which had an absolute monarchy, and many citizens did not agree with this; it was a problematic time. During the Enlightenment, many philosophers began to have a new philosophy, that was different from the previous beliefs; it was a time of thinking of change. And the French Revolution, was when the French citizens overthrew their government to try to create a new one; it was a time of change.

The first step in doing so is crossing the threshold between the world in which he is familiar and the world in which he is not. This threshold is strikingly similar in both Orpheus’ and Christian’s stories, as they both leave their simple lives behind in exchange to traverse a corrupt and infernal environment. Throughout the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, the threshold is authentic, meaning Orpheus does not cross into a metaphorical underworld, instead he experiences the physical manifestation of the noun, as he endures palpable flames and fury in order to achieve his goal. Conversely, the threshold Christian must cross in Moulin Rouge! is a much more symbolic representation of the underworld.
Despite the constant obedience to the mind's commands and requests, sometimes hands expressively act upon strong desire without alerting the mind, but simply committing the operation. In Ray Bradbury's science fiction novel Fahrenheit 451, the symbolic image of hands evolve from a destructive and detrimental force to a gentle and prudent one. Hands play an immense role in the development and enlightenment of Montag's perception of his society because the representation of hands begin to advance along with his character. In the beginning of the novel, hands depict destruction and demolition because they relish and savor the pleasure of burning books. Hands are accused of
This is in contention with the beliefs of his time where the universe was beautiful because there was a sense of mystery and “magic”. That the mystery behind the workings of the universe made it beautiful and if that mystery was destroyed than the universe would lose all magic. Fontanelle contends that the universe is beautiful because it is mechanical. This furthers Fontenelle from Lucretius because in On the Nature of Things Lucretius never challenges the dichotomy of mechanical things cannot be beautiful. Fontenelle states “they want the world on large scale, as a watch is on a small scale, so that everything goes by regular movements based on the organization of its parts” this statement is exactly how Lucretius presents his universe, working according to the order of “parts”.
The more destruction, the more beauty it brings. with his ethos, he is able to argue that there is beauty in the destruction of words because he does it on a daily basis. With Old-speak, Syme convinces Winston that there are too many words, they would be better off with less words: "In the end the whole notion of goodness and badness will be covered by only six words--in reality, only one word. Don 't you see the beauty of that, Winston." Syme demonstrates he is the most knowledgeable on the subject, so with less words, there is less of a chance of thoughtcrime.
Following, Philo states that he will approve of all the arguments Cleanthes has presented thus far, because at the end of it all, Cleanthes cannot compile a working argument. This is simply, because Philo claims that if a “Deity” has unlimited power, as has been approved, then the “Deity” will not accept any malevolent acts in the world. Thus, having malevolent acts in the world, means that the “Deity can be kind and ultimately powerful, for these inconsistencies are the way man thinks. Philo identifies these key points which is part of his initial point that was made, what was rejected by Cleanthes, however Cleanthes is now forced to accept this, if he wants to maintain the argument that a “Deity” is endless.
The emergence from the cave is an enlightenment of intellectualism, when all the difficulties and confusion of life is gone and only reality exists. Plato uses the shadow of fire as a metaphor for intelligence. The people who emerged out of the brightness represent truth; the freed prisoner. The chained prisoner would “look towards the firelight; all this would hurt him, and he would be too much dazzled to see distinctly those things whose shadows he had seen before”(Plato
Marx’s main concern was that of capitalism and class conflict. In the words of Giddens and Sutton (2013), capitalism is ‘a system of production that contrasts radically with all previous economic systems.’ It was Marx’s belief that all societies, including capitalist societies, are divided into classes, with one being the dominant class. In the case of capitalism, there are two main classes, the bourgeoisie and the proletariat. Class conflict, Marx believed, was what encouraged the evolution of society. To quote Marx himself, The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles.
Kelly Schulze, Object Conservator, has finished completed the conservation on The Vine by Harriet Frishmuth (1880-1980) in the Alice Bimel Courtyard. Kelly finished removing loose corrosion products from the surface using a power washer, and removed the old wax coatings from the sculpture. The coatings were applied to protect the sculpture from the elements, but over time wax becomes less effective, and a buildup of old wax can obscure many details. The aged waxes were taken off by applying a customized solution of mineral spirits to the surface and then wiping it off with cotton cloths; this expose the unaltered bronze surface.

The movement and growth of power throughout history has occurred with many strides, but also with many obstacles. Jon L. Berquist writes “The process of imperialization simultaneously generates the process of resistance”. Berquist explains the pattern of an empire gaining power and consequently facing the repercussions of reign. The issues within imperialism rise from the hierarchal dynamic of its system. Especially seen within the Persian and Roman Empire, imperial power creates a society with diverse positions; some individuals who have everything and many with nothing.
After some analysis he concludes that he must exist, because he is able to question his existence. The evil genius could not impose any false ideas on something that did not exist, therefore, he takes his apparent consciousness as evidence for his existence by stating “I think therefore I am” (Meditation 2).
