Two examples are on page 24 and page 103. On page 24, Odysseus protests the chieftains to continue to fight the war and that it would be a shameful thing to leave the war. But Thersites protests Odysseus, who is the Greek war leader. So, Odysseus beats Thersites with a scepter. This shows Odysseus is honorable because even though it may seem abuse, it was the right thing to do.

Preventing the death of a son and saving the life of a highly esteemed hero are choices that most would make, except for the King of Gods - Zeus. In the Iliad, Zeus does not wish to make those decisions, but is compelled to do so out of his sense of duty. Before being a father and warrior, Zeus was above all the leader of the gods. This means that as the head of the Olympians, Zeus has to be impartial in order to keep the peace of Olympus, which causes him great misery at times. Zeus’ duty as the greatest and most influential god stops him from taking sides in mortal affairs in the Iliad to maintain peace, which parallels the question of whether America’s status as the most powerful and influential country gives them the duty to interfere in
When he demanded goods or men for his great armies, they felt they had to agree. When he demanded they send tributes to honour him, they sent them without question. It was the only way they could stop him going to war with them. But his demands on Athens became too much for them to bear. This hold over the ancient Greek world ended, because one lone man named Theseus stepped in and stopped it.
Before Macbeth sends his men to do just that Macduff’s son and his wife have a very heart to heart converation about life in general. Macduff should have been there to protect his family knowing what Macbeth was capable of but at the same time Macbeth should have been more of a man to stand up and evaluate the situation and what could come of it if he went through with this. Macbeth saw Macduff as a threat from the beginning, he was strong and nobel just like he use to be. Macbeth didn’t even know why Macduff was going to England and he decided to assissinate his family just because he can. He has all of this power and that is how he was chosing to use it ruined him entirely.
Sir Lancelot once declared, “No, it is not foolish, for once a person acts shamefully, he can never recover his honor.” (438) As the quote indicates, protecting one’s honour of his role was quite critical to the social structure in the novel written by Homer, King Arthur. The king’s close ties with the knights were only made possible because of the men’s act of chivalry, loyalty, and respect of individual value. Even hints of democratic-like conventions were demonstrated throughout the myth. Each knight’s view of mankind, the way one regarded another beyond their power and ranking was how the courteous society was formed. A knight’s chivalry was what lead them to be respected as they were.
For someone to fit in the nursing leadership slot, they should show their competence and purpose to serve in the higher positions (Spector, 2016). Trait theory is an expansion of the grand man theory by defining what makes a leader great. A great leader should show honesty, competence, courage, intelligence broadmindedness and inspire. A great leader should also be forward-looking, imaginative and straightforward. If anyone possesses these traits, they are thought to have been born with the characteristics.
Daniel’s character was determined because he resolved in his heart to follow after Jehovah God regardless of the cost. His faith in God ruled his choices and elevated him in the service of the king. Daniel was tested several times; but, the lion’s den is a powerful portion of his life to examine. Daniel chapter six is the documentation of Daniel making choices, which land him in a lion’s den. Due to King Darius trusted officials, he issued a decree without thought and the decree forbid anyone
“The prince ought to have no other aim or thought, nor select anything else for his study, than war and its rules and discipline; for this is the sole art that belongs to him who rules” and “it is of such force that it not only upholds those who are born princes, but it often enables men to rise from a private station to that rank”. This shows exactly how important it was in Machiavelli’s view to master the art of war, as it can even allow people that weren’t born princes to become princes; he believed that power could be acquired through the art of war. This shows that he did not believe much in divine kingship compared to Domat, as Domat believed that power was granted directly from God himself and princes should only study the rules God has established for
I shall never let criminals excel good men in honor.” (236- 244) In this quote we can see that Creon is deliberately going against divine law for the sole purpose of trying to drive Thebes away from the destruction of the war and helping it thrive, making it steady. He is mostly trying so hard to prove his position in society because he has just become king, and he needs people to respect his authority as well as obey it. He claims in Pg.50 that “It’s my job to rule this land. There is no one else.”(885-886) This shows that not only is Creon committed to right the state but to also be the only one to accomplish it, seeing as how he is king. Antigone's second motivation, and perhaps one we can most relate to, is her devotion to her family.
Through this work, he was trying to express to his people with Naram-Sin at the helm of the monarchy that there was no possible way that they could ever be defeated or taken over. This piece was used to convey the trust and hope that the people should’ve had in their ruler, this sculpture expressed the great supremacy of Naram-Sin and the discipline of the Akkadians beneath him. He was resilient enough to conquer these barbaric and chaotic people and this showed his fierceness to the Akkadians. With this defeat, it is believed that he subjected them to life as slaves and placed them beneath society just as they were displayed placed beneath him in the relief
They both believed in the same god, but both had a different perspective of their beliefs and yes it created chaos. The King set the laws, therefore, Creon is the law but, it contradicts with Zeus’s law; no mortal man can override him, for he is the supreme god of all aspect on earth and in underground. It is clear that Creon believed only he is right and such power he feels, he overrides the god 's law, even after hearing from his son that people whisper in thin air that Antigone’s bravery and loyalty should be rewarded. On the other hand, Antigone’s character shows a lot of courage despite her role as a woman back in her time. She was gaining power through her belief of her god and took advantage of it; she voice out to the society when she had her hearing that she would rather die and be happy with her family in the underground even after the disgrace they bring upon themselves.
Week two talks about leadership qualities. Leadership is how an individual influences another individual or groups to achieve a common purpose. For a leader to achieve its set purpose or vision towards individual, organization, or a group, influence is the aim. Influence, therefore is the ability to direct or indirect manipulation to get others to act or respond in accordance to a leader’s want or desires. When a leader leads, the leader will often times have the people he or she is leading conform to his or her ways of doing things or at least agrees with the leader, which in this case regard as being obedience.
