The progression of philosophies from Christian thought to nihilism to empiricism throughout the novel shows how the meaning Grendel gives to life changes as the philosophical environment crafted by Gardner changes. This idea is also present in both modern and classical psychology. Psychology attempts to explain the actions and thoughts of humans, which are tied to the meaning they ascribe to life. That meaning is in turn shaped by the philosophical environments. Plato’s “Allegory Of The Cave” and John Campbell’s “Myth And The Modern World” demonstrate how the effects of a philosophical environment on meaning extend to psychology and the actions of people in a society.
I have many amazing people in my life that push me to do what they know I can and want me to do what makes me happy. My family is my main support system and I am very thankful for that. My parents and brother always motivate me to be whatever I want to be
Throughout my life I have learned to be grateful for everything that I have, to be someone in life, and to follow your heart no matter the situation. First of all, who am I? I come from a family who are hardworking and achievers. Most of my family own businesses or land that they play a big role in. I am motivated and inspired to follow their pathway and do better, which is why I am always giving it my best to be successful.
I got back on my feet and started striving to become someone I could be proud of again. I decided I wasn’t going to sit there and wait to feel better again. I was going to make myself better, because I am the one thing in life that I can control. I can ensure that my life will be just what I want it to be. I will be someone who does something with my
The way that I was going I was not going to get anywhere in life. I knew that I was better than I was; I knew that if I tried I could really get somewhere. So then I took a risk and decided that this was no one else’s fault it was my fault and the decision that I made that brought me there. I tried everything to get my grades up and me a better
From our analysis of this argument, we once more may understand as to why the young humanist would place such importance in philosophy. As stated, philosophy quells the passions, acts as precursor to theology, aids man in understanding the self while elevating him to the divine. Above all, philosophy propounds harmony and truth. Through the recognition of Platonic values in a variety of faiths, Pico’s “Oration” presents the idea of universal harmony among philosophers and harmony through the mechanism of philosophy primarily. Thus, through philosophising, all cultures, philosophies and religions may hold similar traits, leading to united ends in differing ways.
The more we have the need of expecting things to be done or even to happen in our life the more we create room for disappointment. Just as we expect to be happy in life, and if for instance we don't get that happiness of course we will be disappointed, of course you will find life not being fair. I just don't want us to expect anything in life, but just live it. Let us just live the life that was given to us. The world is a beautiful place without expectation.
