Unlike Marx who views Multiculturalism from the theory heading downwards Dalrymple views multiculturalism from the ground going up. His day to day experiences prove that "not all cultural values are compatible or can be reconciled by the enunciation of platitudes. " This means that although multiculturalists support the idea that people should embrace different cultures, there are many challenges that make implementation difficult. Dalrymple argues that the idea that we can co-exist in a society whereby the law doesn't favor one culture at the expense of another one is a lie. In short, the author's main argument is that some cultural values will always be superior to others in every society and the idea that all cultural values can be compatible with every ethnic group makes no
King has provided his opinion about education is building character. Dr. King uses his words to create an audience awareness to think for yourself isn’t the same as you may call it critical thinking. Against the common assumption that colleges should teach their students “critical reasoning,” Dr. King argues that critical thinking alone is insufficient and even dangerous. Teaching one to think critically is no small task. Most students learn by constructing knowledge based on an engaged learning process rather than by absorbing knowledge from passive sources.
Culture is, indeed, the higher learning. But, this higher learning is not acquired at universities; rather, it is assimilated continuously from earliest infancy when human beings first begin to trust in those familiar responses others make to their overtures. “culture must communicate ideals, setting as internalities those distinctions between right actions and wrong that unite men and permit them the fundamental pleasure of agreement” The secret to the vitality of culture is its historical continuity and communication. Culture originates in an organic form from its sources, and national self-interest exists in maintaining secular national consciousness from generation to generation.
He says you should find something that interests you, but something you can expand on. A solid platform to start your journey, while also being rational and realistic to your goals and future. Job emphasized the importance of finding what you love regardless of the consequences. Other than Haden’s opening title, he was respectful and didn’t disrespect Steve Jobs. I expected worse and believed his paper would be about targeting Jobs as an individual.
They both appear to have a strong sense over what is right or wrong and make the entirety decisions based upon their morals and beliefs of the time. Whether those decisions be as in Atticus’s case, inspiring, or in Proctor’s case, a mix of regretful and dramatic. Atticus shows he is a man of conscience primarily through sharing his morals and beliefs with Jem and Scout and wanting them to be able to recognise what’s wrong and what’s right. However Proctor shows he is a man of conscience through sticking to his morals, in specific wanting to keep his name keep his reputation as white as possible. Overall although Atticus and Proctor portray their good consciences in different ways they are both men of
The author also mentioned that such negative attitude to smart citizens is not common for other developed countries. While he named the region, “in East Asia, a kid who studies hard is lauded and held up as an example to other students” (Fridman), he did not provide more detailed information, like results of surveys or funding statistics of the foreign universities. It is also possible to question this argument, at least in respect of the past. It is difficult to provide a source, but there was a joke that said “the intellectual is a kind of an insult” in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and some of its
In Patriotism and Cosmopolitanism, Martha Nussbaum argues for a cosmopolitan education, writing that patriotism is expendable in order to fulfill cosmopolitan goals. Nussbaum, however, later alters her views on cosmopolitan and patriotism arguing instead that patriotism should be a primary goal of education and discards a rootless cosmopolitanism. There is an inherent tension that arises between cosmopolitanism and patriotism. The implication is that cosmopolitanism must be in conflict with patriotism by definition. In this paper I will argue that cosmopolitanism and patriotism are more compatible rather than being binary opposites and that this inherent tension is resolvable.
contemporary world individualism is becoming the norm of today... It is not something new it has existed for more than a century a century. This is why I will agree with the thesis, “There is a tendency in much contemporary thought to assume that men basically find fulfilment in the satisfaction of their own individual interests. From this perspective human communities such as families, villages, religious organizations, business firms, or trade unions, are seen as sources of restrictions and limitations on the autonomy of individuals (on their freedom from). In other words, there is a tendency to oppose individual and community and to see community basically as a threat to the fulfilment of the individual.
Immanuel Kant designed ‘The Categorical Imperative’ theory which was associated with the fact that it was commanding us to practice our morals and desires in a specific way which was exercised through two rules. Kamm (2000) claims that these components were to ‘(1) treat persons as ends in themselves and (2) do not treat them as mere means’. Kamm is basically suggesting that we seek happiness of others, as that is morally right, however fulfill capacities of one’s own intellect. From following both of these we arrive at an imperative and it is categorical. Kant also discussed the importance of perfect and imperfect duties in relation to good morality between humans.
Our self-interest and rationality, as perspectives of human beings, drives us, according to Hobbes, to sought the willingness of individuals to submit ourselves into a “political authority”. According to him, men´s self-interest and rationality, will give the possibility to accept the authority of a Sovereign in order to be able to live in
Coats mentions we must “move from the classroom as the locus of instructional delivery, to the student as the focus of instructional attainment.” His opinion, by this, is that focusing on individual students’ needs instead of engaging them in a full classroom is the best solution- using other means than instructional delivery is not only okay but appropriate. Rosenblum opposes this by saying we “internalize an ethos of caution.” He believes that instead of catering to the individual student, forcing them to learn different methods is a better way to go. Their points are strongly made, but contrast dramatically.
Both men’s points are valid. Still, the two men’s viewpoints do not contrast each other as both men take radically
Although it can be seen as a reasonable theory to implement in times of controversy, there are a few issues that still arise from this theory. Some weaknesses include inconsistency, and lack of substantiation, but one of the biggest flaws of living constitutionalism as argued by originalists, is that judges are given too much power, and belittle the power of the legislature and the American people. The main question that arises is how does the public know that judges are the best representatives to comprehend the nations fundamental values? Judges are granted the responsibility to alter the meaning of the constitution based on their own personal motives and beliefs, and they have powers that are far beyond those of legislators, who were structured to ensure representation of the American people. Congress and judges come from different environments, and different motives.
He uses this to get his point across. He tells the King of the ongoings although the King does not know for sure, he does very much trust that Velasco is truthful. He carefully chooses the things to discuss that he wants to discuss and deliberately points out parts that need changing. The basic assumption I get from this letter is Velasco feels undervalued and feels he should have more power. I also get the feeling that Velasco believes he has great ideas about the running of Spain but does not believe the King will implement them due to the King having overall
In knowing this, one measure we must take should be to challenge what we know by changing the metaphors we live by. The changes to our conceptual views lead us to a deeper level of understanding; allowing us to accept new ideas as our own and because of this we can no longer revert to ignorance. Prior to college there are many things in our lives that can keep us from enlightenment. These causes may include things like our family’s values or a lack of experience. This was demonstrated as Plato compared this concept to his story about the cave.
