In book one of the Transcendental Dialectic, Kant deals with the concept of pure reason. He asserts that these concepts which are derived from pure reason are accomplished by inference and not by reflection alone. The notions of reason are Ideal inventions which though in a certain sense rest upon experience but it go beyond the limits of experience. Generally, the concepts of reason allow us to comprehend while the concepts of understanding assist one to understand. The difference portrayed between concepts achieved through reflection and concepts obtained by inference seems to be misleading whereas the groupings of understanding state experience and so facilitates the unity of consciousness which is necessary to all reflection.
According to Susan David, she wants people to keep “the pursuit of happiness in perspective,” but she also wants people to see “negative emotions in a new and more accepting light,” (Don’t Worry Be Gloomy). A person may use laughter as an outward expression of happiness to deny their hurt or angered or pained feeling. It is their coping mechanism for other emotions that are needed to be released. To much unreleased pained can be detrimental to the state of mind. This goes back to not appreciating the need for negative emotions.
If y had some sort episodic memory of the day before I arrived, which would be person z, then y will be identical to that person, z. However, the psychological continuity view says that memory is a necessary condition for identity, which suggests that person x and person z are not identical if x does not remember being in the position of z. This does not make sense, since the idea that x is identical to y and y is identical to z implies that x is identical to z by transitivity of
Introduction The personality perspective has been described by many theorists in order to explain behaviors behind a functioning person. There has been legendary theorists’ underlying this perspective, with different views and observations of understanding personalities exceptionally well. Regardless of lack of prominence in some approaches, their terminology and ideas still influence psychology today (Meyer, 2008). Only the two theories of Carl Rogers and Victor Frankl have been applied in the case study of Thapelo and Lerato. The Carl Rogers theory of the self-concept will explain the development and structure of personality, whereas Victor Frankl’s theory will explain the meaning of life as a dynamic of personality.
I felt as though some of Locke’s thoughts were contradicting to each other. For instance, he believes that the mind and the body have no relation to each other, in fact they exist as one. Though it makes more sense to me that the mind and body do have relation to each other because they work together interchangeably. Simply because my thoughts and physical movements are always reacting to each other. If I were to break my hand, my initial thought would be pain.
Professor of translational epidemiology at Emory University, Cecile Janssens states, “Even when all genes and their complex interactions are completely understood, our ability to use gene editing for favorable traits will remain limited because human traits are just not genetic enough.” (Janssens). This would mean that giving an unfair advantage to a so called designer baby would be impossible, because we are unable know if these traits are entirely genetic, let alone isolate and edit them. Another hole in the opposition 's logic is the idea of a fetus needing consent to be genetically modified on. If it’s amoral for a fetus to undergo a process such as genetic modification in order to make it healthy, then it must also be wrong to give baby medicine, vaccines, or surgery. The opposition also commonly thinks that genetic
We have seen how the lexico-grammatical form of language is internally organised in general functional regions (i.e. the ideational, interpersonal and textual metafunctions). We looked at the ideational or conceptual meaning through the vocabulary and grammar of the texts. Just like the metafunctions of linguistic texts, visual texts also have metafunctional characteristics. By applying Halliday’s concept of metafunctions to other modes beside the linguistic, Kress and Van Luewen (1996) came up with a grammar for visual design where they assume that the visual mode draws upon the same semantic system as does language, and that everything said about the semiotic code of language could be said about the semiotic code of pictures.
Have you ever wondered what comes after homo sapiens? All species at some point will inevitably die out or evolve into something else, and as people are no exception to the theory, the next step for humankind is using technology to exceed the limitations of our bodies and brains. If you agree with this, then, most probably, you are a transhumanist. For people, who are completely unfamiliar with the idea, the name of the movement makes it pretty obvious that “transhumanism” is somehow related to humanism. In contrast, it requires some knowledge or research in order to get the deep understanding of the question.
Now let us consider a hypothetical situation where the doctor without any physical transplantation swapped your brains data, which consists your personality, memories, experiences, now would you be still you? Yes.  There is an argument among philosophers that a person at a time A is same as at time B because their personal identity is same as they are spatiotemporally continuous (continuous in space and time) and others argue that it is because of psychologically continuous. (mental states of person at time B are derived from mental states at time A).  Lets us consider one more situation that if you donate your half of the brain to other brain less person, after regaining consciousness both of you are psychologically continuous with same mental behaviour and experiences but representing different physical bodies.
This agrees with the concept of "dynamic" and "equivalent effect” developed by Eugene Nida. Hatim and Munday (2004: 339) illustrate that this phenomenon happens in translation when the TT needs to reproduce the same effect as it can be found in ST's audience. In other words, there is a search of naturalness in the TT, yet without altering the functionality of the ST. Accordingly, Hatim and Munday (2004:253) define that dynamic equivalence focuses on the TT reader or better explain "translating with naturalness and fluency". So, dynamic equivalence is a form of re-writing the ST and to achieve naturalness in translation, linguistic and rhetorical norms
