Yet when some of good is removed from this wholly good creation... then he uses these good, created talents... for evil ends." If people lose evil, why would God still allow evil to exist? If our decision is made already for us then the good choices should be made, and no one should ever lose their good ways. The argument is made that maybe then we have "free will" with our decision making as humans. Then if it is true that humans have free will then would that not make us as powerful as God himself.
The two alternate endings are not possible for a narration that should adhere to the laws of verisimilitude but John Gardner in The Art of Fiction provides some relief to just such an argument: “The reality of the world of the tale, in other words, is that of a moral universe. What ought to happen, possible or not, does happen” (73). He states, what should happen does happen. And moreover in the very beginning, Fowles states that “I must conform to the definition of freedom for me as well as for my characters” and shows the pleasure that he finds in allowing his words to break from convention that has been almost shown on every page, especially at the close of the book with two separate endings for Charles and
We see many philosophers base their beliefs on something specific however Descartes philosophy comes from extreme scepticism also known as nihilism. He begins his philosophy by having disbelief in the true existence of anything at all. Descartes main aim was to attain certainty. He had a desire to be certain about the things that truly exist and those that do not. He believed that once he could be truly certain of one thing that he could re-build the world from there for the better.
In Socrates’ first speech, he regards the rational non-lover as the superior, as they will never be tempted into shameful acts. He wishes to leave, but realizes it is foolish, and sees a daemon (a warning personified) so he corrects his mistake in the second speech. The lover can become holy, even more than the lover, but that comes with risks. They can only be holy with self restraint, without going too far. We can see the parallel with Equus, much like Socrates, Dysart and society in general are seen as the norm and most successful, but Alan forces us to reconsider that, and shows us the flaws in Dysart and society’s values.
They direct the flow and the motion of the story, claiming that that is their only reality, but because the reader/audience is not privy to their play as a written text or one that has been authored, unlike the one the “Actors” were performing before the intrusion of the “Characters”, it is harder to imagine the credibility of both their actual reality and overlaying illusion. Pirandello confronts this notion by emphasizing in the play that the “Characters”, although are seen as expressing agency with regards to their story, are also shackled to it because it is their only “immutable reality” (Act III). It is extremely noteworthy that the “Son” rebels and is persistent about not performing with the other “Characters” but he is not able to
In the book The Achievement Habit by Bernard Roth chapter two, “Reasons Are Bullshit,” Roth explains why reasons are bullshit in a very meaningful way. The reason this chapter is very meaningful is because Roth persuades the reader that reasons are just excuses prettied up by using the rhetorical triangle which relates directly to ethos, pathos, and logos. Roth helps the readers to never give excuses, because excuses are just something to hide because you are not willing to try harder. Roth says, “Many reasons are simply excuses to hide the fact that we are not willing to give something a high enough priority in our lives” (42). Roth gives a lot of examples throughout the chapter, also he provides a lot of evidence to show the readers you do not have to make excuses to succeed in life.
I believe the true question he is trying to get the readers to ask themselves is “why should we live a morally upright life if tragedy strikes us all equally anyway?” For example, a character named Gabriel is always responsible and cautious, and others, like Sergeant Troy who is the complete opposite, is careless and destructive. One thing I learned from this book by asking myself this question is, we should live a morally upright life because of the same reason why we shouldn’t lie or cheat. It is something we are taught. I can easily relate the quote “don’t do unto others as you wouldn’t want done to you”. These quotes are set into place to make you question the decisions that you make and I think Thomas Hardy does a great job at making us look at things in a different perspective.
Third, you can’t give up on your beliefs and lose hope because the odds aren’t in your favour. The first reason to prevent the loss of hope is to never stop fighting for your beliefs on a topic. This is a humongous part of the novel The Chrysalids by representing many examples in the novel like Joseph Storm and Elias Storm and The Sea-Land Lady. Over time, in the novel, The chrysalids people ' beliefs began to solidified because they have to show what they mean to the novel or do in the novel by helping other people to believe and not lose hope along their journeys’. One example that portrayed never stopping the fight for your beliefs and dreams is when:” Joseph and Elias Storm both fought for something in hopes of one day recreating a city from the before the Tribulations(nuclear destruction) and a new religion”(Wyndham 15,16,17).

The essential attributes defining the professionalism are as follows: First and most essential attribute that a professional should have is the specialized knowledge. The second essential attribute is the competency. Professionals are expected to get the job done. They 're reliable, and they keep their promises.
