These seem crazy but again that is what is so interesting about Stonehenge because everything is based on theories. Although Stonehenge might remain one of the biggest mystery of all time, the theories that the ancient builders or glaciers moved the stones seems to make the most sense. First, a little background into the mysteries of Stonehenge that will help provide insight to the two many theories this essay will discuss. The main mysteries include who came up with the idea to make Stonehenge, where did these stones come from, how much do they weigh and when was Stonehenge built. These mysteries are slowly being answered as technology improves.
The use of Machu Picchu has hindered scholars for centuries. Machu Picchu, a mysterious, pre-Columbian city, was discovered by Hiram Bingham in 1911, who at the time, was trying to uncover Vilcabamba, a city rumored to be filled with gold (“Machu Picchu is Built”). Machu Picchu was built by the Incas, the biggest empire in the Americas, at around 1400, and was predicted to be finished around 1450 (“Machu Picchu is Built”). Moreover, this evidence compelled many to` believe that its exclusiveness have protected it from destruction. Even so, no one knows exactly why Machu Picchu was constructed “In the midst of a tropical mountain forest on the eastern slopes of the Peruvian Andes” (“Machu Picchu”).

The person recognises himself as the same and not someone else across time and place. The OED gives an older meaning of the term ‘identity’ that is still used quite frequently in everyday life but it does not represent our present concept of identity. As Gleason shows in his article “Identifying Identity: A Sematic History”, our present sense of ‘identity’ has been developed in the last forty years, deriving most of it from psychoanalyst Erik Erikson’s concept of ‘identity crisis’. ‘Identity’ is a new term, which came into use as a popular social-science term only in 1950s (910). C. Vann Woodward in his essay, “The Search for Southern Identity”, published in 1958, used the term without enclosing it in quotation marks or without defining it, but it symbolises a new weight of meaning which ‘identity’ was acquiring in the mid-1950s.
The 19th century was a significant period for American literature. It was then that the Dark Romanticists started to produce their works. It was then when American writers finally decided to face the truth and uncover ambiguous past of their land. Was it really characterized by the lack of long and stormy past?

In 2004, two years after Szonyi’s book was published, Pamela Crossley’s review was published in The American Historical Review. She believed that Szonyi’s argument revolved around the lineage institutions that existed during the Qing period. According to Crossley, Szonyi focused on paternal lineage as an institution and the “ambiguities” between social and ethnic identities. Crossley noticed throughout Szonyi’s work he utilized many pieces written by many historians, including Helen F. Siu and Liu Zhiwei, but spoke little of their impact on Practicing Kinship. Crossley’s review focuses primarily on two specific points of Szonyi’s research – paternal lineage and contradicting ideologies during the Qing dynasty, and localization of identities in the Ming dynasty.

Relativism Despite the fact that ethical relativism did not turn into a conspicuous subject in rationality or somewhere else until the twentieth century, it has antiquated starting points. In the traditional Greek world, both the student of history Herodotus and the critic Protagoras seemed to underwrite some type of relativism (the recent pulled in the consideration of Plato in the Theaetetus). It ought to likewise be noticed that the antiquated Chinese Daoist scholar Zhuangzi (now and then spelled Chuang-Tzu) set forward a nonobjectivist see that is here and there deciphered as a sort of relativism. A well said words by Protagoras "Man is the measure for goodness' sake; of those that will be, that they are, of those that are not, that they are not" has frequently been translated as inferring good relativism, the perspective that reality of good judgement is constrained to the connection in which they are certified. Protagorean relativism Protagoras of Abdera (ca.
There has been innumerable debates and discussions from decades on ‘Western philosophers’ and ‘Non-western philosophers’ and their views. However, since the discovery of the ideas, modern day scholars have maintained a very significant gap between the non-western and western philosophers putting them as two sides of the world because of its presentation of absolutely different sphere of thoughts. In spite of a very prominent division, their views string somewhere, as the basis of politics or philosophy is Human and everything starts with defining the main objective of human existence which leads to other aspects as we explore on their thoughts.
