Athens and Sparta are better in different aspects. For example, Sparta discouraged superfluous arts, but Athens appreciated them. This aspect is evident by the Athenian ruins, and that Sparta has no remnants of their history besides the tombs of their generals. This aspect concludes that Athens had more to lose during the Peloponnesian War. Athens had an empire, they stood up for values, they were the school of Greece, while Sparta were clinching onto their dear iron bars.
We can easily compare the ideologies of, Plato and Aristotle, two of the most imperious Greek Philosophers of their times as they principally spoke about same subjects. They have written a lot of theories in the field of Epistemology and Knowledge. Plato was motivated by Socrates, his teacher, one of the greatest philosopher of all times. Aristotle was motivated by his teacher, Pluto, even though he was the strong critic of him too, as his theories had many flaws. Despite this their works are easily comparable as they target the same aspects of philosophy even if the bulk of points are conflicting.
Obstacles make heroes’ perseverance stronger. Numerous stories display treacherous situations in which the protagonists use determination to survive. The Odyssey, written by Homer in the Archaic Age, captures a leader’s, Odysseus, hardships and will-power to keep going. Similarly, The Martian, a film adapted from Andy Weir’s book, exhibits Watney’s strong perseverance to continue on his journey, no matter the extremity of the problems he experiences . Although both epic adventures highlight creative problem-solving and questionable decision-making, Watney’s crew shows greater loyalty because of the friendships shared.
The monster’s appearance also made many people assume that the monster would behave ruthlessly and immorally. For example, when the monster saved the little girl from drowning he was treated as a villain because of its frightful appearance. Shelley brings up the idea of people judging each other by the first impression. During the time the book was written and today there has not been much change because we still judge each other based on looks. Many immigrants are seen as horrible because of their outer appearance or what they have heard about them.
There are no men but only the great WE, One, indivisible and forever” (Rand 19). Jonas and 7-2521 didn 't do what they were supposed to, but it changed society for the better. They were supposed to all be equal but these guys knew something was wrong and they did what they could to change that. Although these books were written so long apart, the concept of the story is the same. They are so popular because they are interesting and hold many characteristics that kids enjoy.
Even though it was written around the time of 320 BCE, the teachings hold up even to this day. Plato’s vision of the perfect community can be found on page 100 of “Republic”(Book 3), and it is described as: “The Myth of the Medals”. What Plato mentions in his novel is what he believes to be the best option of a community's social structure. Before reciting what Plato actually believes that to be, his idea of what the natural social is must be conveyed. Based upon the natural way that people are born, he declares that: “When the god was forming you, he mixed gold into those of you who are capable of ruling, which is why they are the most honorable; silver into the auxiliaries; and iron and bronze into the farmers and other craftsmen” (Plato & Reeve 100).
For many years great philosophers such as Socrates and Plato have defined and given great understanding into life and its moral ethics. Socrates was born in Athens in 469 BC. He was known to be one of the wisest men on earth. Socrates is credited as one of the founders of Western philosophy. Many individuals often as the question in their mind, “Who is the real Socrates?” Socrates never wrote philosophical text, his knowledge and philosophies were expresses based on the writings of his students such as Xenophon, Aristotle and Plato.
The Cyclops, unlike most people, was not afraid to break the laws of Xenia or the stranger’s nor the gods’ wrath that was known to follow being a cruel host, because he was the son of Poseidon. This allowed him to bully the visitors as he pleased, with no fear of consequence. But in reality, neither host, nor guest was safe from harm in the end because Odysseus blinded the beast and in return got the wrath of Poseidon, making his journey home a long struggle. Although the Cyclops didn’t feel the pressure of following Xenia he also didn’t have a trace of warmth in his
"Wisdom is commonly used to describe the character of what is reasonable", a number of philosopher's have their own views on wisdom such as Socrates, Heidegger, Nietzsche and Popper. Wisdom to me is intelligence and common sense, wisdom keeps us grounded to the truth of live and avoid unnecessary problems. Socrates was a lower-class man who lived off his friend's earnings but very wise man during 339 BCE in Athens, Greece. "The Apology" starts off with Socrates charged with not recognizing the God's and he is found guilty. According to Socrates, "I know that I know nothing" and continues to state that he is the wisest man alive for knowing that.
Features Plato’s most sustained discussion on the concept of knowledge, it fails to yield an adequate definition of knowledge, thus ending inconclusively. Protagoras dialogue begins when Socrates starts to question Protagoras about what he teaches his students. This is also a strangely disjointed text. The Sophist were itinerant teachers and intellectuals who frequented Athens and other Greek cities in the second half of the fifth century B.C.E. Timaeus has nevertheless had the greatest influence over the ancient and medieval world.
In conclusion, I believe that the theme communication is better than violence is the best lesson illustrated in The Outsiders, because physical harm doesn 't change anything, there 's no point in doing it, and it usually ends negatively for the participants. This relates to me because I think sometimes we get so frustrated with people that we don 't even think about talking it out, but really, it would help us resolve our problems more effectively if we communicated with each other. I definitely recommend The Outsiders to anyone who wants an action-packed book that teaches a
They began at once to leave off their wild and savage habits; … and were glad because life had been given to them.” This myth shows the values of learning, and growth when people are able to evolve from “beasts” into people who can do things such as cook. This all begins with the outspoken opinion of Prometheus, that decides that the people need fire to keep warm. He felt strongly about his opinion, and therefore defended it, even though it involved disobeying Zeus. The power of speech used here has been proved so important, that an entire play was written by Aeschylus to exhibit it. Also, not only were there public plays showcasing these values, but ancient Greek forms of government encouraged the expression of
“We all know why we are here”. This new “therapist” was my last resort. I wasn’t proud to admit it. Who would be? Some things are easier to admit than others, and admitting that my stubborn self was wrong in an argument was far easier than admitting that I needed help.
