Out of this tension and search for answers in Christian thought, emerged the Just War Theory of St. Augustine of Hippo. Augustine continued in the Christian tradition of believing all war to be intrinsically evil. He unequivocally condemned those who desired, sought, or enjoyed war, and made it clear that to engage in a just war is to engage in war by force of necessity. In Book 4, chapter 14 of his magnum opus, The City of God, he says “to carry on war and extend a kingdom over wholly subdued nations seems to bad men to be felicity, to good men necessity .” Later, in Book 9, chapter 7 of the same work, he states the same even more clearly: “But, say they, the wise man will wage just wars. As if he would not all the rather lament the necessity of just wars, if he remembers that he is a man; for if they were not just he would not wage them, and would therefore be delivered from all wars.
He showed the aspects of “he is dependent upon endless affirmation from others in the form of approval, flattery…the more desperately he clings to the belief that he is his idealized image, the more violent the hatred” (Our Inner Conflicts p. 110~p. 111). Also he showed his tendency of “He must in his own mind feel superior in some way – regardless of any particular drive to excel” (Our Inner Conflicts p. 101). Some of the actual strengths and accomplishments that Sooyang had was not able to achieved. By eliminating his surrounding people that opposes to him, he was written as a cruel king of Chosun dynasty.
When he becomes king of Thebes, he proposed a law that commenced the plot in the first place. His law, “...forbids anyone to bury him [Polynices], even mourn him.”(Antigone, Line 34). While this is a justifiable law, it contravened “...the great unwritten, unshakable traditions [Zeus’ laws].”(Antigone, Line 505). Antigone transgressed the law; her reason was that Zeus’ law is more powerful than Creon’s law. Creon thinks that the people will think of him as a liar if he lets Antigone free.
Lind Charnes explains through Tudor’s legend that Richards’s body is regarded as evidence of his identity. The fact that his body is handicapped the character considers his likeness as an individual suffers as well. That he word can have no legitimate authority because he is considered impaired due to his exterior. Charnes goes on to explain how the play uses political visions to combat for an alternate strategy to his form. In medieval political theology, she explains how the “King’s Body” has no flaws and is the highest manifestation of Gods graces on earth.
The morals of the time are defined by the principles that religion and the Bible at the time set forward, which also dictate social norms. The morals of the time, set by religion’s strong influence in society, are the driving force of Hamlet’s internal conflict about whether or not killing for revenge is morally excused. Leartus’ answer that revenge is never excused and the results of Claudius killing King Hamlet out of greed, illuminate the meaning of the work as a whole. Through the play, Shakespeare shows that murder, greed, and revenge are sins, no matter the reason or justification, and how detrimental procrastination is. The play also brings up the weight of one’s morality, the meaning of life, it’s complexities, and gives various advice that can be applied to everyday
A notion that society was linked, not physically but via cultural institutions, to a lesser primitive and “the other” is a significant paradigm shift that is revealed in Edward Gibbon’s reliance of Tacitus in the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (1776). Similarly, to Rousseau’s critique of the State, Gibbons finds fault an intuition herald by the people in which he critiques. Gibbons asserts that the “simple and obvious” cause of the moral decay of the Roman State rests on the shoulders of religion, specifically Christianity. Like Rousseau attributes to the State in The Origin of Inequality, Gibbons sees “the object of religion” as the degrader of civic purity. Upon asserting that the Roman Empire is not what true humanity is descended from, Gibbons turns to “the other” of the period he discusses for his ancestral link, the Germanic “barbarians”; “[t]he most civilized nations of modem Europe issued from the woods of Germany”.
Good and Evil Are not Real The concept of good and evil is one of the most foundational apothegms ever known to humankind. It was a crucial stepping stone for other morals, and it is what averts society from pandemonium, by providing structures for laws. But, one may ask oneself; where did the conceptualization of good and evil arise? I believe that good and evil does not exist and are entirely artificial. Ludicrous is what one might be thinking after I’ve stated such a radical exposition, but I disagree and can justify my argument with factual evidence.
The Bible says, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23, New International Version).” Dante’s expression is that despite our sinful ways God is willing and able to deliver us. Metaphorically speaking Jesus is the hero of men souls. Homer and Virgil served pagan gods whereas Dante sought truth and salvation in relation to the true and living God. It is important that Dante respond differently than that of Homer and Virgil because his fate depended on it. The heroes of Homer and Virgil’s time depended on their own personal strength regarding victory however Dante put his trust in the Lord for
the only crime is pride” ( Teiresias 232). This quote is intended to hit Creon hard and show to him that he really is to into his beliefs and not what 's morally right. It explains even more how he is the one against religion and is creating his own in a way. The blind prophet threatens him by saying if he goes through with his plan and doesn 't straighten back towards a religious mentality that he will be the one to be severely punished for eternity. Creon later realizes he is wrong by saying "That is true.
