Imagine thinking about another society that all had handicaps and you being able to keep that thought in your head and not them. This is why I would not like to live in a utopia like this.

When a world renowned hunter gets caught on his island he decides to treat him like a friend instead of prey.
Herzog shows clips of Treadwell ranting in response to perceived intruders of his self-proclaimed “Grizzly Sanctuary” and displays Treadwell’s paranoia towards people who Timothy believed were threatening harm to his beloved bears and him. The director shows that Treadwell views himself as a savior and protector of the bears, which appeared to border on mania. Herzog uses other clips to reveal Treadwell’s state of mind, such as clips of Treadwell’s emotional overreaction to a bumblebee that he believed was dead, his clutching a childhood toy bear at his campsite, and his becoming euphoric at touching bear excrement that only moments before had been inside a beloved bear. Narrating one clip about Treadwell touching the detached paw of a mauled bear cub, Herzog gives his opinion about that event that had punctured Treadwell’s romantic fantasies about nature’s harmony by saying, “I believe the common denominator of the universe is not harmony, but chaos, hostility, and murder.” The video selections and narration from Herzog reveal to the audience Treadwell’s complex and unstable state of
Jack London exposes the dog Buck as a Santa Clara valley dog free to roam the fields and go inside the Judge’s house. In his world he was king, which also foreshadows his later desire and impulse to be pack leader of the trail team. He is dognapped from his home by the gardener, taken to Alaska by a man in a red sweater who beat him with a club which is where Buck learns about the law of club. In the beginning of the book, it is said that Buck was around dogs and humans who were savages and that Buck had an “imperative need to be constantly alert” (London 14). This suggests that Buck sooner or later was going to have to be savage like the others if he were going to play their game to survive.
He also explained that just as the deers are afraid of the wolves , so are the mountains afraid of the deer and the other species with the fear of losing its vegetation. For this he has phrased that “The wilderness we hunt is the salvation of the world” which means that that it must not be destroyed. His main point here is that only the land can understand the true significance of an individual who is playing its role in the ecosystem. This is story that tells us the importance of very living species in nature and our eco system. If anything or any specie is absent, then there is a high probability of imbalance in eco system.
In comparison to “The Bear,” Keats symbolizes the urn in his poem as a “[b]old [l]over” that is the gist of the speaker’s infatuation (Keats 2). His fixation on the object’s beauty leads him to further explore the contents on it. Inscribed upon the urn’s exteriors were “marble men and maidens” (Keats 5), accompanying the “spirit ditties of no tone” (Keats 2), showing to the speaker how the ancient engravings recite a story about the “deities [and] mortals” whom were relevant to the ideals of beauty (Keats 1). The poem explicates that the urn is a symbol of melodies that fall deaf on the ears, and the urn’s beauty is timeless yet only an ideality, sparking the
I believe that Touching Spirit Bear is Fascinating book to read and it describes what’s happening at the moment and it’s also Action packed in the chapter’s. The book is mostly about a boy named Cole that goes to an island and see’s a big white bear. Some important parts is that he destroys his cabin then he tries to kill the bear he saw. Although Cole attacked the bear, he didn’t get far with it.
There is an unequal relationship between humans and animals (the other). From Jonathan Crowes outlook in his essay “Levinasian Ethics and Animal Rights,” it is impossible to know the other since we do not understand their knowledge and thoughts. In the movie Grizzly Man, Timothy Treadwell tries to break the boundary between himself and the bears (the others). Treadwell exceeds the limits in a quest to form a relationship with the bears. From Crowe’s take, being too familiar with the other is an ethical burden.

In the book, “Into the Wild” by Jon Krakauer, Chris McCandless, who introduces himself as Alex, hitchhiked his way to Alaska. He embarked on an adventure to Alaska to get away from not only his family, but humanity in general to figure out how to escape from the life he did not enjoy. He decided to give up his life as a college graduate just to prove that not everyone needs materialistic things in order to live a happy life. With regard to that, he left his family behind without a notice of what his plans were going to be after he graduated. In my opinion on what provoked Chris McCandless to venture off into the wild was his philosophical beliefs to get out of society and the way his parents treated him built a dreadful relationship between them.
