They had a lot of precisions in their works, and the formulas that they invented later influenced the architecture in the past two millennia. Ancient Greeks enjoyed and loved everything there is to love about architecture with lots of passion. Greeks had two main principles orders in architecture, which were the Doric and Ionic. One of the Greeks best aims to the method of architecture was the Greek Temple. Theatre played a big part in Greeks life.
Whenever people are caught in a dilemma, they always do what protects their reputation. The first thought that comes to mind is which decision will benefit them the most. However, ignoring the disadvantages presented by the dilemma could lead to further consequences. People do not commit to what they truly believe in, but rather make a decision based off of how everyone else would see them. This is seen in The Crucible by Arthur Miller.
Niccolò Machiavelli, Baldassare Castiglione and George Washington all had small factors of similarity within their interpretation of an ideal person, some more than others. Machiavelli valued the unpleasant truth, so that people would view the world with a notion of realism. He also always wanted to be in control and make his own decisions without anyone else's opinion to mar his idea of keeping authority with others. And he furthermore pushed the trait of fake sincerity. Instead of truthfully being honest, religious and merciful, he told one that you should fake it, so that when the time arrives, you can switch your personality.
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don 't matter, and those who matter don 't mind.” -Bernard M. Baruch. What Bernard is trying to say is to be yourself and say what you want because the people who matter in your life will not try to change you and like you for being you. But the people who don’t matter in your life will say things to change you that people who accept the way you are won’t care on what you do or did and for those who do matter and want to fit will do get rid of the people who don’t accept you because they are not being themselves and not being real. For example on an article that I found “You are conformist( that is, You Are Human)” the author, Noam Shpancer states that we will easily follow on what people will do to not be an outsider. I agree with Shpancer because it is true that we will do anything just to fit in.
Yet, ‘Human-beings’ will always tend to be like Amir. Humans surrender in front of fear. No one can blame Amir because if we were Amir, we all would have done the same thing. Who could ever stand up in that situation? However, because the author recapitulates the guilt inside him, this causes not
Mill also defends the unprovability the utilitarian axiom. But also argues saying that, because we want happiness fact, this is the greatest good; and if it is for everyone, it will be for everyone. Sidgwick goes one step further by stating that the principle of utility is known by intuition; Moore also end up claiming the intuitive evidence for utilitarianism. However, and consequently, as was happened with the conception of the good in general, here empiricism has come to reject the intuitive evidence for it as dangerous sign of an arbitrary dogmatism, as they say, is one of private and subjective criteria. Thus, more recent utilitarian defend his doctrine from a position or non-cognitive justification, not rational.
Hobbes equates preservation of nature with preservation of life. He argues that since nature is always right, it follows that life is always right. Thus, humanity’s most fundamental telos is to live. In the context of passions, he elaborates, “The passions that induce men to peace are fear of death, desire of such things are necessary to commodious living, and a hope by the industry to obtain them” (78). Notably, man is induced to peace through appetite (desire and hope) and aversion (fear), which suggests a particularly strong motivation to act for self-preservation.
a. Emerson’s idea about self-reliance is doing what makes you happy and not worrying about what people will think of you; alsfheo doing things individually. In the passage, he says that every person has the potential for accomplishing amazing things without the negative effect of society; this is accomplished through the power of self-belief. Emerson also talked about how people should not follow the rules (not in a rebellious display) in order to express individualism. Regarding these beliefs, I side with Emerson because I believe that people should be themselves and not allow society to tell them how to act. On the
The other obligations are on a more personal level and vary on every person. People have to act accordingly to their obligations regardless of the positive or negative outcome of their actions. According to deontologists, it is wrong to kill, to steal, to lie, and it is right to keep promises and to help people. One should not lie about anything even though that lie could save a lot of lives. In addition, one should not perform a prohibited action even though it could bring uncountable benefits to society (Kant’s Deontological ethics).
However it is to be underlined that Hobbes’ Commonwealth is centered on fear. Men joined the civil society to live in peace outside of the state of war that is the state of nature. But the only reason maintaining peace in the civil society according to Hobbes is the fear of repercussions. The sovereign is made strong to counter the natural « bad » nature of men. He is given « the power to keep them in awe and bind them by the fear of punishment and respect the laws of nature ».
"You will never influence the world by being just like it." Ayn Rand and Kurt Vonnegut both make sure that the protagonist have a different mindset aside from others that abide by the rules of an unfair lifestyle. They both learn to be independent and go by their beliefs. Although "Harrison Bergeron" by Kurt Vonnegut and Anthem by Ayn Rand are both dystopian pieces whose protagonist are incredibly similar. Harrison and Equality both are defiant in their own way and are very much trouble makers that choose to go on their on paths.
John said, “I believe in non-violence as a way of life, as a way of living” (“Do one thing-quotes for a better world”). John believes fighting should not be a part of life that it will not solve anything. He believes to go about things in a non-violent way. Lewis explains how staying peaceful everyone will be happier when he said, “If you’re not hopeful and optimistic, then just give up. You have to take the long hard look and just believe that if you’re consistent, you will succeed” (“life hack quotes”).
The American President should focus on representing himself as a trustworthy and caring person. In his article in Organization Science, Robert Shamir mandates that being consistent to oneself and one’s own values allows a leader to be truthful to his/her populace. An inconsistent leader must lie at one point or another, and these lies will be evident in their history. Inconsistency must be avoided at all costs as the populace will become weary no longer trust their

He doesn’t want it to happen again.This is so most of humanity will be at peace.He doesn’t want any of the horrors to repeat . This is so people will know that it happened, but not have to experience it in their own life. He wishes for no one to hate one another.
