(Bernier 74). Not many philosophers argue that life itself is death; nevertheless Seneca argues that, since death is inevitable it is a part of life, therefore life is death. In this letter he states that unlike a journey where one does not reach one’s destination, life is never incomplete if lived honorably. To Seneca, morality, courage and decency remain the most crucial traits for a life
In Plato’s Apology, Socrates is charged with not recognizing the gods recognized by corrupting the youth. Socrates defends himself, but his defense does not work. He loses the trial which leads to him be sentenced to death, and he has to face death. Throughout his defense, he brings up the subject of death and constructs a proper view of death.
Which of us goes to a better thing is unclear to everyone except the God". This proves that Socrates believed in after life which is dependent on God. Although, Socrates believed that he was a messenger of God. The people blamed Socrates to have a neutral approach towards their Gods, so they decided to put the blame on him for all the misfortunes. Socrates actually believed in after death which means that he also respected the presence of supernatural
This basically puts forward the idea that there is another place which we go to that consists of better forms of beauty and justice making Socrates not afraid of death; “That is why i am not so resentful because i have good hope that some future awaits men after death, as we have been told for
In addition to that, Odysseus is less merciful to others who have wronged him while Harry Potter, though he has suffered much, shows great mercy. Odysseus as soon as he comes home tells his son, “ I came to this wild place, directed by Athena, so that we might lay plans to kill our enemies” ( Homer 1080-1082). Odysseus had such vengeance on his mind that he would start planning as soon as he had come home, yet it seemed that he would spare not one of them, no matter how great or little their involvement. Harry Potter, on the other hand, could have hunted down the rest of Voldemort’s followers, but he left them alone to look for forgiveness and what is right. Finally, Odysseus was a great fighter known for his bow and arrow skills while Harry Potter was just a wizard.

By harming others one is being unjust and unjust deeds harm the soul. So what is the point of breaking the law if I will be hurt in the end? Furthermore, Socrates would never rationalize breaking the law because it would be violating an agreement made between the citizen and the state.
A fool can be satisfied but he will not see all the aspects that Socrates will see. Thus making him ignorant to the reasons for Socrates dissatisfaction. Although Socrates claims to be ignorant himself, he is one of most respected and studied philosophers in history. This shows that he was clearly onto something with his ideals. Socrates might say that the fool’s satisfaction is not the kind that he would want, he would want a much more fulfilling satisfaction than one who seeks common wants such as wealth, fame etc… Would Socrates be satisfied if he knew the answer to every question he or someone else asked?
More specifically, the mysteries of cheating death by creating life. It was through this area of study that he procured the self-entitlement one only associates with those who try to become God. Ethically speaking, Victor Frankenstein should not have pursued his experiment. Not only does it violate a cultural tradition of allowing the dead to rest in peace, but it also goes against ethic principles put forth by the NIEHS. Technically, according to the list of ethics listed on the National Institute of Health’s website, there is nothing wrong with creating life from death.
The important in Aristotle life is the mind and soul is the first intelechy of the body because it is main course ‘cause and principle’ of the body, the realization of the body. So can might put it like this , “The mind is the purposeful functioning of the nervous system. In this topic quiet different strand in the fabric of Aristotle skill thinking, and supplements what we can learn about him from his will. In addition, the good things that what we enjoy is Aristotle like to care wealth and health because have no value if our soul is not good.
Macbeth was forced to go against his moral code, suffering so much from regret to gain his short kingship, but because of his fear of Banqo’s abilities, he is worried that Banqo’s son will be able to easily attain the throne. He remarks on Banqo’s abilities that he “hath the wisdom that doth guide his valor to act in safety.” (58-59) Macbeth knows that Banqo is not so irrational and risky as Macbeth, and that his logical and rational thinking will lead him to not take so many risks while also ensuring his sons kingship. Macbeth risked imprisonment
[He said] it [didn’t] bother Perry a bit” (Capote 255). Dick is honestly trying to make Perry look very guilty instead of him. Even though Perry killed all four of the Clutters, Capote was still against the death penalty for Perry. Capote was also biased throughout the story because of his “relationship” with Perry. An example of Capote’s bias is when he wrote that “Dewey, a believer in capital punishment, its purported deterrent effects, and its justice, witnessed the hangings” but he could not watch Perry’s hanging.
FEMA might not be able to provide supplies to the victims that the community and the church’s can. Yes, FEMA has made mistakes in the past, but we all make mistakes, no one is perfect, it is not like they purposefully hurt those victims. Yes, it will always be a question of where the funding comes from for FEMA, but even if it is from our taxes, we know that they went to a good cause. Scientific research can start with researching how severe the events have been that FEMA has responded to and if FEMA had the correct supplies and knowledge they needed to handle the tragic events. This can determine if the mishaps where because of FEMA directly or if because they did not have the correct funding and knowledge they needed.
and I respect them for their courage, but I also find no interest in truly getting to know more about them and it is not a culture I’d decide to join into one day. The statistics I would like to know would be; what are the death rates of infection caused by the “holy-mouth-men” or the “doctors” at the temple? Are they more joyful than fearful, or vice versa? With so much torture afflicted upon them, it is easy to assume there must be little joy within this culture but you also cannot assume
Oedipus defeated the Sphinx and gained a city, so of course he thought very highly of himself. But, little did he know that his pride and anger would end up dooming him, forcing him to realize that he did not escape his fate. With having pride you believe in yourself a little too much, thinking that you can do anything. You began to think of yourself as a GOD, rather than someone who is able to perform a task better than the next. You will never have a clear vision of what is really in front of you.
God mustn’t tell us to do something irrational to society that can be labeled “evil to us, for he is above all and morally perfect. However for us human beings, we need to follow something that IS powerful than us and can lead us to something great at the end. Thus, we question when do we ignore something that is not considered ethical. Hegal wants to prove that he Abraham can be the “tragic hero” of the story, but he can still make rational decisions by his own and not by his “God” he follows. 2.
