Both Creon and Antigone show signs of hubris. In the ancient Greece this was considered a character flaw and was contemplated a sin as it generated too much emphasis on the ideals and what the desires of a particular character, which could eventually endangered other people. This enabled them to accept other people’s counsel and usually performed bad
Hubris and hamartia were terms used by Aristotle to describe the character traits and actions of typical tragic protagonists in the plays of his time. These terms have been translated with different meanings over time, hubris being consistently translated as excessive pride or self-confidence and hamartia either as sin, fault or a state of ignorance. I am of the opinion, along with most modern critics that in order to explain these character faults, modern audiences seek for the psychological reasons, which explain how if it’s inborn, the character flaw won’t be “created” and how this will affect their identity and behaviour, creating the characters’ internal conflict that will result in their downfall. Therefore the purely Aristotelian concepts
When we compare all these three movies, Bullet in the Head has more concern about social problems because it indicates Vietnam War and its consequences. For example, it criticizes militarism because in the movie soldiers (especially non-Americans or Vietnamese) kill people without any reason and violate them. The most crucial scene about the corruption in the system is robbery scene because when two friends burgled the jeweler, military forces came and gather gold from jewelry. Then, kill the owner and moved on. Therefore, this scene is a big reflector for the society and corruption.
The concept of perception and reality isn’t trustworthy because perception can easily lie to you, while reality is harder to find or realize. Don’t believe whatever you see! Just seeing something can’t prove that it’s true, but a lot of people just see and believe by default. To begin with, Julian Beever, who specializes in pavement chalk art, creates 2D drawings
Arguments On the other hand, objections against the government of philosopher-rulers can be made. However strong the foundation of the strengths of his idea of a philosopher king may be, there are also a lot of flaws and weaknesses and misconceptions that can be found in it. While in truth that his arguments with regard to them as the ones who are more suitable and capable of giving better judgments than those of the normal men, it is still not persuasive enough to capture the minds of the other philosophers that time into taking into action the idea of the philosopher king. And while his altercation may be valid enough to stand in solid ground, it is still not contemporary with the realistic perception of the world and as well as to the modern
(Dewey, 2007) In contrast, there are evidence that proves Freudian slips is unavoidable and peoples will correct it if they say it or wrote it wrongly. It is clear that slips and mistake are two different things as if ones who make a mistake and instantly he/she will correct it, that will be the slips of tongue or pen but if ones kept on making the same mistakes over and over again and he/she does not know how to correct it, obviously that is a mistake made by the person. However, since Sigmund Freud’s theory been introduced there were many philosopher and researcher who disagree with his idea. Why? Modern views on Freudian
Great philosophers like Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle were all brilliant philosophers, but their works were not truly appreciated until the Renaissance where a look on past works was emphasized. This ideal was called humanism and during this time, works from Ancient Greece and Rome were restored and referenced to create new, crucial writings. In particular, in ancient times Socrates ' beliefs were passed on through his pupils. One of his main ideals was that one should always be aware of the consequences of one 's actions. This can be highlighted in a quote by him stating, "the unexamined life is not worth living".
Heraclitus is a Greek philosopher also known as “the Riddler” because he often contradicted himself and insulted other historians and philosophers. He was interested in “exploring questions about knowledge and the human condition as in exploring cosmological issues” (24). Heraclitus believed that logos was the divine law of the universe which controlled the cosmos. Logos is something said, an account, word, and/or logic. He argued that everyone had the ability to understand this principle but instead act as if they are asleep.
So people make irrational decisions all the time. It is said that any decision-making is better if its positive and negative outcomes are analyzed, but in irrational decisions one dose not carefully analyze the outcomes (Kepner & Tregoe, 1965). Thus irrational decisions have always thought to be negative and therefore have more negative effects than positive effects. Irrational counterproductive polices is when a person has a clear goal and wants to achieve it but eventually gains opposite result that is mostly negative. After carefully examining both the side of this topic it is clear that irrational counter productive polices stimulates rejection, decision fatigue, and self-regulation
Fight club. This is a great example of the working class getting back at the upper class, exposing the upper class to obscene pictures without their knowledge. I see it as a way for Tyler to reverse the roles of society, to become the oppressor and the upper class the oppressed. The second example: “Our goal is the big red bags of liposuctioned fat we’ll haul back to Paper Street and render and mix with lye and rosemary and sell back to the very people who paid to have it sucked out. At twenty bucks a bar, these are the only folks who can afford it.” (Palahniuk, C. 1996).
“They burned down white own tire company that burned on for days and nights, and all you could see was smoke from it all the way in uptown Miami.” (Floyd). “The actions that the National guard did was arrest the rioters.” (Donnie). The Impact it had on the rioters was that the national guard and police arrested 600 people during the riot. “When President Jim Carey came into town when he was on the middle of the speech the rioters were about to start a riot and harm the president”(Donnie). These events made the Blacks realize we are hurting our comment and need to stop.
Consequently protests of police brutality turn brutal. In Ferguson, after the shooting of Michael Brown, protesters raised chaos in the city for weeks. Massive amounts of looting and destructions, along with violent confrontations between police and protestors took place. (Buchanan NYT). This large disconnect from the lessons of Martin Luther King’s nonviolence helps to cause the Black Lives Matter movement to suffer from lack of appealment from the general population.
These riots are the outcome of the incidents which have greatly taken a toll on today’s society. It hate back and forth from the people to the police, once police brutality happens people get angry and try to fight back with negative actions such as trying to beat up policeman or trying to kill them. This major issue can be resolved when officers face
Most of the time the phrase “check your privilege” is used negatively. When used in this way it often intimidates people, and they feel the need to defend themselves. We can always find a reason to justify hostility but at the end of the day it 's still just that: hostility. And hostile, overused quotes like "check your privilege" doesn’t educate people, they just alienate them and turn them on the defensive. As James Baldwin said, “It is true that two wrongs don 't make a right, as we love to point out to the people we have wronged.
