He does not consider that what he is doing is morally wrong. By creating life without sexual reproduction, Frankenstein implies that he is superior to God. To go against God is problematic because the Creator knows what is best for humanity and this should not be challenged. Frankenstein’s Id expresses itself so much that he only wants to satisfy his passions. The protagonist becomes obsessed with his desires to create life and attain glory and seemingly, revenge that he neglects his family, relatives and friends.
Alchemists were chemistry practitioners that aimed to transform basic elements into gold and the elixir of life. Their foundational goal of transformation can easily translate into Victor’s desire to improve the human life, but does his fascination involve something deeper? Agrippa was a sentient being well over 200 years before “Frankenstein” takes place. He played many roles during his lifetime, including a philosopher, alchemist, physician, secret agent, polymath, soldier, and occult writer. Agrippa
This individual person who ignited the argument on theoretical physicists and changed it forever? Erwin Schrödinger known as the father of quantum physics, Schrödinger is an Austrian physicist who ignited the debate on quantum physics. In the early 19th century, Schrödinger created a new theory of quantum physics which began the debate. In the late 19th century he created his wave mechanics to prove his theory was correct. This essay will seek to cover Erwin Schrödinger’s early life which leads him to a major discovery, such as the creation of quantum physics theory, the invention of wave mechanics and how this changed quantum physics forever.
The ego can enter the conscious, the preconscious and the unconscious and when the id seeks for socially unacceptable needs, the ego hides that desires in the unconscious. The super ego develops at the age of 5, and follows the values and norms learnt from the society and the adults through reinforcement and punishments. At this stage the individual is aware about the guilt, shame and anxiety. Instincts (drives) are the psychological energy which motives the human behavior internally. The two human instincts are Libido and Thanatos.
The “Thousand year Reich” was Hitler’s prediction that his ideas would last 1000 years in Nazi Germany. In this essay we discuss how the education was affected by the rule of Hitler. Why was the education so important in Nazi Germany? The education was so important because the children were the next generation of Nazi Germans and if they wanted their ideas to last they had to plant them in the brains of the young people. They also wanted to prevent the children from having their own opinion on Nazism.
It was considered quite a successful accomplishment. By the time this paper was in draft, Heisenberg had already been in a good relationship with his mentor, Bohr. But Heisenberg never sought Bohr’s advice before advancing the paper. And hence, later when Bohr read the paper, he found an error in Heisenberg’s argument, and the spirit of competition and rivalry in Heisenberg blinded him to what Bohr was suggesting. A conflict started between the two, and Heisenberg stubbornly defended his position, claiming that such a small error in his thought experiment that used the gamma ray microscope would have made no difference.
German philologist and “romantic critic Karl Morgenstern, who held a professorship in aesthetics at the University of Dorpat” (Au 4) first introduced the genre of Bildungsroman. He held two lectures on the topic of Bildungsroman in 1819 and 1820 (Boes 233). Morgenstern mentions that the genre has two purposes; to portray the hero’s journey and development and, to foster “the Bildung of the reader to a greater extent than any other type of novel” (Boes 231). Nevertheless, the term had not been prominent, or well known amid this time. It became familiarized in the 1870s, where German philosopher Wilhelm Dithey frequently undertook it in numerous literature studies.
Stoicism in the Roman Empire was a major influence politically and ethically. Zeno from Cyprus was the founder of stoicism; he was also the student of Polemo who is the fourth head of Plato’s Academy (Sharples, 2003). The Stoics believe that the only good things are characteristic excellence or virtues of human beings such as wisdom, justice, courage, moderation and etc. Stoics claim that a good thing must be beneficial to its possessor under all circumstances but this is not true all the time for example if someone has money and he spent it on vices then it does not bring that person any benefit. For the Stoics philosophy is not a past time thing but a way of life (Baltzly, 2014).
Same is the case with Good and Bad. Heraclitus and St Augustine said that good and bad are complete opposites of each other thereby resulting in universal harmony . Suppose no bad things occur to us we don’t know what is suffering thereby lose the essence of life. So, what is Good and what is Bad? This question has been reckoning philosophers since the ages.
In Norman’s view, “the battle fought is internal, a psychological war won by the courage to be me” (4). Moral codes are forsaken and these heroes make their own rules. Self-knowledge is valued more than physical strength and loyalty is to a particular project and for a community of like-minded people. This hero paved the way for the modern hero. The modern hero is often characterised by the mere instinct to survive in a world which has no known reason for existing.
