Amongst the many women portrayed in the book, the two most important women are Athena and Penelope. Athena is the Goddess of wisdom, courage, law & justice, strength and skills. She plays the role of a mentor in disguise for Odysseus but doesn’t show him the full path to his destination as Athena wants Odysseus to fight and prevail on his own. Penelope is the wife of Odysseus and the mortal queen of Ithaca. She is portrayed as the average Greek woman, but in reality is very cunning.
In an excerpt called “The Soul of an Individualist”, Rand elaborates on the idea of an individualist, and allows the reader to get a better view at how passionate she is about one’s self. The correlation between the two pieces stress the importance of being one person and not relying on the opinion and restrictions of others. The victory of Equality would not have been possible without his struggles and his drive to be original, which is represented in both Anthem and “The Soul of an Individual”. To begin, Equality 7-2521 had numerous complications in his life, all caused by the harsh environment of his society. The restrictions and controls all went against him, resulting in a difficult time for

This determination is short-lived, however, because of the inevitable force of jurisdiction over man. The dynamic of authority is observed, noting that T.J’s differences, such as his voice, eventually leads to the carnage of his determination. When man’s uniqueness and individuality are suppressed and forced to be hidden, one can not strive. As Stanley Milgram said, obedience binds humans and authority together, and as soon as that bond breaks, regaining that fetter is more important that the prosperousness of
He showed the aspects of “he is dependent upon endless affirmation from others in the form of approval, flattery…the more desperately he clings to the belief that he is his idealized image, the more violent the hatred” (Our Inner Conflicts p. 110~p. 111). Also he showed his tendency of “He must in his own mind feel superior in some way – regardless of any particular drive to excel” (Our Inner Conflicts p. 101). Some of the actual strengths and accomplishments that Sooyang had was not able to achieved. By eliminating his surrounding people that opposes to him, he was written as a cruel king of Chosun dynasty.

A leader’s job should be involved so that his reputation is boosted. Leaders should choose clever advice-givers and dodge brown noses. With each of these character behaviors, Machiavelli goes against the grain. He knows that princes are always in the public eye. Their behavior will shake their public image and their status will involve their ability to keep
This shows how adults work as well because the same personality differences can cause disagreements and fractures in the structure of society. Most of all, everyone develops the id, ego and super ego differently which means that the nature of one person will not necessarily be the same as someone else’s nature. At the base of Freud’s Theory, the id rules first and the Hierarchy of Needs can explain how the boys regress into being id dominant. As for human nature, everyone has their own opinion, but William Golding says this: “Before the Second World War, I believed in the perfectibility of social man; that a correct structure of society would produce goodwill; and that therefore you could remove all social ills by a reorganisation of society... but after the war, I did not because I was unable to. I had discovered what one man could do to another...
The foundation being the To-Do List, and whatever else was implemented only serve to complement and make it better.
