If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." The quote reminds me that although there is the constant pressure of reaching a societal standard of acceptance of our values and beliefs if we were to all embody the same values, it would create a very dull world. This is also relevant to Gandhi 's choices as he leads
Desire Satisfactionism on the other hand, would be able to explain why deception is bad. The painter desires that his paintings are good. Though he does not realize that, in reality his paintings are bad and thus his desires are frustrated. Therefore, his well-being would not increase and deception is bad for
He starts talking about the artist and the critic’s role, a point in which Wilde says when critics find ugly meanings in art they fail, but when they find beautiful meanings in art there is still hope. This is why he says there is no moral or immoral book, because those who seek morality in art fail, the only thing that must be found in art is beauty itself. In the end, and in order to support what was just said, Wilde concludes “Art is quite useless” (Wilde 4) and therefore no morality must be sought on
While some people argue that art censorship is for the good of humanity, others contend that is is injustice and it takes away freedom of expression. Before researching the topic, I swayed heavily on one side; however, after going into depth in the topic and becoming educated in the topic, I lay on the fence. I realized the censorship of art will last just as long as it has been around, but there does need to be better ways to take down someone else’s creation. Art censorship is commonly given with the excuse of necessity. Some argue that pieces of artwork are able to support and enhance stereotypes.
Despite their supposed inferiority, there seems to be a great interest in adaptations of well known stories. How can this be explained? It has been mentioned that adaptations are never perfect copies of their source; every similarity and deviation from the source is a deliberate choice by the creator. This, explains Hutcheon, makes every adaptation an interpretation of its source. Which scenes are necessary for the story?
Per se, the poem uses several stylistic devices that characterize modernist ideology poetry. For instance, the poem employs fragmentation, juxtaposition, inter-textuality, and illusion. This poem, just like other modernist ideology poems, is more predominantly intellectual/ cerebral in its appeal, rather than emotive (Eliot, 6). It is chiefly imagistic and involves symbolism, often private in nature. For instance, the poem moves from a series of fairly concrete physical settings and several interiors to a series of vague ocean images conveying the personas emotional distance from the world.
Frederick had the courage to say no, so surely Werner had it too. The courage to say no, to say nichts, is what ensures good prevails over evil in the world. Werner’s story taught us there will always be evil, but as long as there is courage and community, good will prevail. By making the choices that align with our morals, by utilizing our free will, we can ensure the outcome. Werner asks himself and the reader, “Is it right to do something only because everyone else is doing it?” (Doerr 246).
Intrinsic factors critically considered when people think about the main components of success. However, Malcolm Gladwell, a famous writer, contradicts this tendency through the book, Outliers. The book, Outliers insists that extrinsic factors define success rather than the intrinsic ones. Nonetheless, Gladwell himself goes against the topic of Outliers in his assertion: “if you work hard enough and assert yourself, and use your mind and imagination, you can shape the world to your desires (Gladwell, 2008).” The assertion implies that individuals could achieve success only with those intrinsic factors. Gladwell’s assertion is wrong because people can’t achieve success without an opportunity of relative age, an opportunity to have practical
For those who understand nothing of the study of philosophy it can often prove confusing as to why one would wish to pursue a career within this art. Philosophy, I have learned, can be difficult, frustrating, complex, and at times challenging to our own moral codes and conducts that we hold as individuals. However, for those who do understand the benefit of the study of philosophy this experience can be liberating and even empowering to a certain extent. It is true that throughout the pursuit of philosophical enlightenment many of our own ideals and creeds may be challenged, although through this confrontation of the self we are enabled to become closer to the truth of things, we may grasp concepts and ideas that which we have never considered prior to this. The young Italian humanist philosopher Giovanni Pico della Mirandola had thought exactly just that.
There is a persistent opinion in a large section of critics that Chatterjee’s work is unredeemed by any positive value. But substantiating to any such view would amount to undermining the value of Chatterjee’s literature as his genuine concern for growing debasement and a hope of betterment behind the façade of cynicism is too obvious to
