Jocasta says, “But his child had not been three days in the word before the king pierced the baby’s ankles” (Antistrophe 2. 676-677). Oedipus’s ignorance is displayed here as Jocasta points out that the baby’s ankles were pierced.

His concept of dissoi logoi invites rhetors to dive deeper into an argument, looking at both sides of a topic which ultimately leads to the creation of new ideas of knowledge pertaining to both sides of the argument. Even the endeavors of the sophist and new concepts such as subjectivity shows merit in how rhetoric has created new knowledge into the world. Protagoras, being the most famous and influential of the sophist can be credited to enormous amounts of a new era in thinking. Without Protagoras and his controversial ideas, there might have not been a wave of thinkers coming to challenge, promote and spread new knowledge to the world.

David Reimer, originally named Bruce, was born as one of two paternal twin brothers. As an infant, his parents opted for both boys to undergo circumcisions; however, during the procedure on David, the electro-cautery device malfunctioned and resulted in the penis being severely burned so much that the child was unable to even urinate. After much debate and following a consultation with Psychologist John Money, the parent decided to have the testicles removed and to raise “Bruce” and a girl, and rename him Brenda.

“So, I close in saying that I might have been given a bad break, but I’ve got an awful lot to live for,” Lou Gehrig made that as his closing remarks in his “Farwell” speech two weeks after announcing he had ALS (“Farewell”). ALS, or Lou Gerhig’s disease, is a degenerative neurological disease that weakens and, eventually, renders muscles useless and has many other symptoms and causes that are still being discovered, including brain concussions from football and other sports. Described by scientists as far back as 1824, it wasn’t until 1869 when French neurologist Jean-Marie Charcot first wrote and published reports of the characteristics linked to ALS (“About,” ALSA.org) (“About,” Wordpress). It wasn’t until when Lou Gehrig was diagnosed with the disease. In 1938, after having a difficult time with playing baseball, Gehrig visited the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, where he was diagnosed with ALS (“Lou Gehrig”).
