However, this is not seen as a solid basis upon which absolute doubt, required by Descartes, can be built. Ironically, his skepticism offers such that I am in a state of doubt, I will also have doubt about the possibility that there could even be a deceiving being. As such, my doubt about the possibility of such a being serves to undermine the greater doubt that is supposed to be generated by this being. In order for the evil demon to generate such a degree of doubt it must be possible for it to exist. However, Descartes does not provide enough proof for his claim of its possibility.
The use of actual laziness used to write this essay made the readers ponder and question what he was trying to say. Being lazy can sometimes end up being the best choice, and this essay is a prime example of that. Morley used a great amount of irony throughout his essay. While he brought up multiple reasons that could persuade the reader, he didn't elaborate on any of them. This shows the
If he had been eager to engage in conversation with one of his peers he would have thought of a more expressive or informational response then infering that he did not know or was not willing to share why he was acting strange. When someone responds to a question with "I 'don 't know" the person asking the question tends to cut off the conversation entirely for lack of a responce to such a abstract reply, therefore people use the phrase "I don 't know,"or more currently "Idk," to, perhaps, let the peer know that they are not eager to engage in conversation at the moment. The dialogue used by the character
Both of them are using ways of writing to convey negative thoughts for something. Their message may be a little different because one is telling as someone who never supported who they are warning against and one of them was a supporter who changed their mind. Also, the message may be slightly different because one of them experienced the direct effects while the other is on the outside looking in. The way in which they deliver their messages are different but are meant to have the same effect. One of them is using a very indirect metaphorical way of conveying their message, while the other uses specific examples.
The author will usually rely on his examples to prove is arguments. He does not explain the claims he makes, which decrease the strength of his arguments. For example, he mentions that a high-five is “not the mutual appreciation of achievement, but the feeling we get upon the achievement of mutual appreciation”. This statement is arguable, some people perform the high-five to actually show appreciation of achievement rather than of trying. The author does not signify whatsoever why the high-five does not mean “job well-done”.
Julio rather be himself even though others do not like them. Being yourself is the most important thing. All in all, repetition is the main transition used in Polanco’s poem. These quotes show, how if you do or say something just because someone told you to do, does not make you feel free. Being yourself is better even though people don’t like you.
Geertz states the event transcribed took place in 1912, but only recounted in 1968. Nevertheless, the degrees of separation from which I am to the story changes my interpretation of the events. The original recounting of the events, told my whomever, was likely not accepted without skepticism from Geertz, however, he does not specify his sources. If he was directly involved in the story (perhaps as a confidant to Cohen) then the retelling of it would be different (and less questioned) than if someone else recited the story to Geertz. If he gathered many different accounts and each community had a different story from the others, but the individuals in the community had the same story, then it would be important for Geertz to understand if the story has already been told it has already been modified.

According to Online Universities (2013), “Pop culture offers an opportunity for educators to meet students where they are.” In the world of the English Language for example. Teachers, of course, in literary courses would want and need their students to read texts from the Greek mythology like The Iliad, Oedipus Rex, and what have you. However, students nowadays are more often not, not interested in that. Today, it has become a trend that students in high school sleep during their literature subjects as what is being discussed do not capture their attention. Considering that their attention span is so short, it will be hard to teach them things of the past or in history.
When thinking about the communication process, we usually tend to think about a simple process in which one person speaks and another listens. However, literature on the issue has shown that this sort of thought is completely wrong and that human communication processes are in fact quite complex and ever-changing phenomena. But, why are these processes as complex? How does communication really work? Answering to these questions is the main aim of this topic.
