What Eisenberg and Mussen stated is that prosocial behaviour is done more due to the consequences of the action rather than what drives us to do it. Prosocial is basically doing good to someone or for the society, in which when doing good to society, it helps
Throughout the arguments by Wollstonecraft and Mill, the customs of society primarily created by men, support the oppression and prejudice against women. In turn, this has impeded the development of a women’s morality. So, what if there were no men to impede women? In 1915, Charlotte Perkins Stetson Gilman proposed a fictional society that was comprised entirely of women in the novel, “Herland”. The society is isolated from the outside world and the women reproduce through parthenogenesis, or asexual reproduction (“Feminist Ethics”).
There are still interior rural hinterlands where Caste system prevails, much not exposed by the urban-centric media. Even the young minds are not without any prejudice.The fixation of clan and caste names with their first names point to the latent tendency laying dormant in the most radical of activists of caste in India. In Annihilation of Caste, Ambedkar writes that the main point of contention in the period leading up to the inception of the Indian republic was “whether social reform should precede political reform.” Roy’s criticism of Gandhi will surely intrigue readers, but what makes “The Doctor and the Saint” relevant is the critique of Hindutva and the continued subjugation of Dalits — issues that deeply tied in with this election cycle. The questions Ambedkar asked are equally, if not more, pertinent today, as the idea of social reform languishes in the shadow of economic
Radical feminists thought women domination is more significunt to deal with, as compared to other types of domination (Jaggar and Rothenberg 1984). They concider that a society is a compound of a number of sub-groups. These subgroups are structured on the basis of natural cause or on the basis of social relations, e.g sex, caste, race, age, gender. Within each division some persons have authority over others and in this relation of domination and subordination, dominants demoralized their subordinates. Correspondingly, in patriarchal arrangement men learnt to manage the women (Lerners 1986).
Both Heller and Kiraly argued that “..._A Clockwork Orange_portrays a detached, uncaring society where ultraviolence is the only method of saying, ‘I am alive’”. Despite the fact Alex’s crimes are abhorrent; the reader regard with empathy Alex’s struggle to seem alive within a disaffected society. The narcissistic nature of the character has derived from being surrounded by society that is corrupted and fails to acknowledge its
Through his pessimism, he exposed true state of the society. With growing maturity he had effectively given pessimism with the sense of disillusionment. The Swedish Academy praised Naipaul’s distinct and unique style in which the usual distinction between fiction and non-fiction. Even though his fictions based on the original state of the society, he added some fictitious elements to give taste his fictions. In his novel “A Bend in the River” he represented social violence and mingled some romantic elements to relief the firing feuds tension.
Shaw through his play had a mission in his mind that was “to draw attention to the truth that prostitution is caused, not by female depravity and male licentiousness, but simply by underpaying, undervaluing and overworking women so shamefully that the poorest of them are forced to resort to prostitution to keep body and soul together.”(Powell, 2004, 229).Regarding the very notion of immorality and vulgarity in any profession Mrs. Warren says, “Why is any respectable girl brought up to do but to catch some rich man’s fancy and get the benefit of his money by marrying him? As if a marriage ceremony could make any difference in the right or wrong of the thing” (Act II, Pg, 106). She in a way exposes and unveils the hypocrisy and moral corruption
And even the history of relations between Deborah and Noodles is one of the most interesting scenes in the film from a psychological point of view, is absolutely not as straightforward as it seems at first glance. Leone always expertly conveyed all sorts of subtle psychological nuances - how of the story (he wrote scripts for his films, even when originally ordered scenes from some famous authors), and with the help of the actors. Personally, I think all these bloody and naturalistic scenes, which many in the film and which has deprived the American public, not superfluous, but rather simply needed for a proper understanding of the ideas of the Director. Because it is life - real life that is not clean and smooth. It has everything - blood, sex, betrayal, friendship, love, deception, crime and sacrifice.
In a country like India where caste distinctions still flourish, where there is no fusion of the various races, where religious distinctions are still violent, where education in its modern sense has not made an equal or proportionate progress among all the sections of the population, I am convinced that the introduction of the principle of election, pure and simple, for representation of various interests on the local boards and district councils would be attended with evils of greater significance than purely economic considerations . . . .The larger community would totally override the interests of the smaller community and the ignorant public would hold Government responsible for introducing measures which might make differences of race and creed more violent than
For the producers and directors, dishonoring the sacred traditions and practices of other cultures is no longer their priority. Furthermore, the producers of media continue to live selfishly by disrespecting the culture of other individuals in the world. First, in the flic entitled “The Love Guru” the audience gets to witness the mockery and foolishness of Indian heritage. To further illustrate, Mike Myers funny and insulting form of acting continues to demoralize the very essence of Hindu culture. With this, he portrayed the Hindu in the movie with such a funny
