The ideas of dualism have drastic impacts on historical and contemporary philosophy, many of those effects in my view are negative. It would take far more time than I have available to express the totality of my disagreements with dualism so for now, I will focus on dualism and ethics, more specifically, ethics in relation to free will.

"(Academy for Women, Defoe p. 578) By using "barbarous" and "we deny the advantages of learning to women" Defoe was able to lure the reader in emotionally. Second, Defoe uses Pathos to demonstrate how education is a beautiful thing when received. "And it is the sordidest piece of folly and ingratitude in the world to withhold from the sex the due luster which the advantages of education gives the natural beauty of their minds."
Brooks took this stance against Sheryl Sandberg’s theory because she tried to take her advice and “lean in.” Brooks states how when she chose to “lean in” she became miserable, but successful. She uses Sandberg 's stance to comment on the state in our society, using Sandberg’s argument as a launching pad.

Her project is that we need to kick back and challenge the idea that more is

Lao Tzu stated that “the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step” (Guise, 2013, p.10). Corroboration or Contradiction Motivation and willpower are two different mindsets but at the same time, they are codependent. “Baumeister and Vohs (2007) argued that after people depleted their self-control through prior acts, they may still be able to exert further self-control effectively if their motivation is high” (Gröpel & Kehr, 2013, para. 1). The Technical University of Munich conducted a research that demonstrated “willpower can only take us so far in completing a taxing task, we also use unconscious motivation to get things done” (Chan, 2013, para.

Welders Equal Philosophers Consider the idea that a welder deserves the same intellectual respect as a philosopher. If you have conformed to society’s standards of what jobs require the most intellectual activity, then this idea might seem irrational and intriguing.

It is common for people to criticize vocational schools and advertise for four-year colleges, and that is what provoked Rose to take a stand.

The argument being made in this particular article was the idea that essentially women in Chemistry go through obstacles that men do not have to go through.

After understanding what the article was about, I then started to look at how the evidence was given in terms of rhetorical appeals. I noticed the article had a lot more pathos appeals than any other rhetorical appeals, which gave me a red flag.
