The concept of freedom has a deep root in human history. Since ancient times, people perceive that they are created as free individuals. They looked up their liberty even by wars to remove any coercion, restraints and regulations on their actions. People’s liberty has a substantial role in their lives. Free people employ the power of nature and harness it to dominate the earth.
The teleological argument to me is what makes God’s existence real because of the design of our world and the creation of the living things. Who else could have created the earth and all the living things around us? It couldn’t be the humans; because it brings us back to the question on how were humans created? Everything has a starting point, and this starting point happens to be an intelligent designer who created the universe. A man can create such things as electronics, statues and buildings but can’t design the world and all the living things.
Oedipus’ tragedy as a result of his freely made decisions Are people truly responsible for their actions or they are just puppets in hand of Gods or people and executors of the fate that is pre-recorded? The question of determinism towards free will has occupied humankind almost over the centuries. Usually fate is defined as something that unavoidably befalls the individuals and influence their decisions and actions. In ancient Greece the religion played important role in everyday-life of the Greeks. The concept of fate had the prominent place in the Greek religion.
Free will is called into the forefront of this play, Oedipus, his fate was foretold long before he was born, seeks to prevent his fate, but he cannot. Oedipus is called “…the child of fortune,” multiple times throughout the play, he is the puppet of fate. Oedipus’ story begs the question did Oedipus every have freewill? The audience pities him because all of his actions and deeds were inevitable. The ghastly reality that his fate was his greatest adversary.
To begin his text structure was strong. The crisis is a persuasive paper because you can relate and understand the points he's trying to make. In this sentence “It matters not where you live, or what rank of life you hold, the evil of the blessing will reach you all” shows he's making a point and trying to reach his audience. He's trying to persuade us to revolt
The ideology of Oedipus’s entire life being predetermined by a higher power. Let’s not forgot how Sophocles also presents the audience with several forms of characterization to show a good amount of sense of individual thirst for knowledge during the story. Oedipus focus of his actions are based on his past decisions which then plays an effect on his entire future. Sophocles, the author, allows the audience to from an open opinion whether fate is truly playing the bigger role in the Oedipus myth.
King Creon, like a child, is so adamant in his ruling, that only a hyperbolic event could bring him to reality and teach him his lesson: a king has to listen to his people. Haemon fervently gives Creon advice about his leadership: “And [do] not be certain that your own opinion/Is the only right one, and that all men share it” (31). Although disregarded by Creon, this serves as a reminder that whatever his political status, Creon is not all knowing like the gods; he must accept other opinions. The hyperbolic event deemed appropriate by Sophocles was the suicides of the tragic hero Antigone, Haemon and his mother Eurydice. After Creon suffers the brutal realization of the three deaths, that were all largely his fault, he goes into a deep depression.
There are varieties of factors that make up the plot in the Greek playwright Sophocles’ tragedy, Antigone. Many characters contribute to these factors, making the play exciting, dramatic, and inspiring, such as, the daring actions of Antigone, the sacrifice of Haemon for his love, and the affection of Ismene toward her family. However, out of all the characters, Creon displays attributes and actions that reflect the unfavorable king as the real protagonist of the play. Creon demonstrates righteous, leader-like actions and learns from his mistakes, which supports his character as the hero. Although Creon executes harsh rules to his people, he uses his absolute power as a responsibility to clean up and fix the rough events that occurred prior
Identity is always developing. It is influenced by other people’s ideas and actions and relationships, and by one’s own choices and changing opinions. A person’s choices impact their character and in turn, their identity. In the beginning of the novel, Huck’s choices were mainly made because Tom Sawyer was involved. He “chose” to go to the bad place because Tom would be there, and he “wanted him and me to be together.” At that point, he was mainly making
