This investigation has allowed me to gain insight as to how historians utilize different methods, as well as challenges that they may face, when carrying out historical investigations. I feel that I have developed stronger skills of interpreting history, and have gained immense historical knowledge about a topic I would not otherwise learn about. In order to carry out the historical investigation, I read multiple books by historians of different ethnicities and origins, particularly from the Eastern Pacific region, I researched the chronological timeline of comfort stations, and I analyzed interpretations of events, all of which are methods often used by historians. I found a massive limitation in the sources I used to carry out my investigation. The majority of the books and websites I found, with a few exceptions,
Seldom, do groups remain together for centuries and as evident in the text, conflict is bound to happen. He appeals to logos by defining democracy when he states that governments derive their power from the consent of the governed. In a way, this defies the current situation in Great Britain and discusses the offenses Great Britain has committed. In, “…mankind are more disposed..,” he declares that humans prefer to suffer sufferable evils than to abolish those evils they are accustomed to. He expands his purpose by showing an example of human nature and that humans do not like the unknown, even if the unknown may be somewhat positive or beneficial.
In the book, Grendel many theories were introduced. These theories were introduced because of the author, John Gardner, who wanted to go through the main ideas of Western Civilization and because Gardner wanted to relate the book to faith and reason. The theories that Gardner introduced were existentialism, nihilism, anarchy, and modernism. Although the theory that was constantly used by many of the characters was nihilism. Nihilism is a theory that moral principles and beliefs are meaningless and that life is useless and meaningless.
I believe that Danforth, the judge, is to blame. He chose to listen to the girls as a verifiable source of information. He makes the ultimate ruling on who lives or dies based on their accusations. He created more fear instead of peace within the community. He didn 't question their credibility until someone else brought that issue to light.
Authors show character 's personality through their actions and their words. There were many instances in the book that Atticus used his actions and words to fight for social justice. By looking at impartiality, moral conviction, and selflessness Atticus showed through his actions and words, it is clear that Harper Lee believed that everyone should be treated equally, no matter their race, ethnicity, gender, or religion. In To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee presents the idea that moral conviction is demonstrated by doing the right thing even if everybody is against you.
Daisy is a victim of denying what is below the surface. This is seen in many different aspects throughout the novel. By approaching reality in a deeper way, everything will automatically become more complicated in countless ways. Even as readers, we do not know everything there is to know, especially when dealing with Jay Gatsby, but what we do know still manages to be contradicted by the complicated character of Daisy. It is recognizable that Daisy continually denies reality for her own convenience within her individual relationships mainly involving Tom and Gatsby, which deal with Tom’s affair, the situation of Gatsby, the feeling of regret following the realization of her first love, and her past of loving Tom.
In conclusion, Leibniz’s arguments disprove Locke’s philosophy of life. “Leibniz does a masterful job of turning Locke’s arguments against him”(Chaffee 290). Leibniz theory that we all have internal instincts in our souls adeptly repudiates Locke’s arguments. Although Locke’s work helped to develop the Declaration of Independence, his theory about experience was not accurate. John Locke is a great philosopher who helped us in many ways become who we are as a country with his many different philosophical theory’s and writings.
As such, to address the issue most thoroughly, one must define imperialism in its most basic form as it systematically came about in the 1800s with the uprising of organized empires. At its very core, imperialism is defined as “the domination…over subject lands in the larger world,” (The Twentieth Century, 733). The exact forms of said domination and the mediums by which it has occurred varies greatly, and can be seen over nearly all eras of history. The most obvious form of domination came in the form of brute force. Hitler’s Nazi Germany is one of the most infamous examples of this.
Tim O’Brien never lies. While we realise at the end of the book that Kiowa, Mitchell Sanders and Rat Kiley are all fictional characters, O’Brien is actually trying to tell us that there is a lot more truth hidden in these imagined characters than we think. This suggests that the experiences he went through were so traumatic, the only way to describe it was through the projection of fictional characters. O’Brien explores the relationship between war experiences and storytelling by blurring the lines between truth and fiction. While storytelling can change and shape a reader’s opinions and perspective, it might also be the closest in helping O’Brien cope with the complexity of war experiences, where the concepts like moral and immorality are being distorted.
On making judgements by John Kavanaugh, an opinion piece in the 1998 Ethics notebook, distinguishes between the two fundamental types of judgement that all human beings are capable of formulating. While acknowledging the negative connotation of judgments against an individual’s soul and conscience, Kavanaughs work critiques modern societal norms that have eliminated much of the second type of judgement. This form of judgement, of the actions and behaviors of others, Kavanaugh views as grossly under expressed and often criticized in a modern society which increasingly finds its members moving towards a sense of narcissistic individualism. Supporting his argument Kavanaugh references the account of a young teenager, who merely stood by and watched the violent murder of another without taking any prohibitive actions to stop the crime, simply because he did not believe he should judge another. The suspension of such judgement, according to Kavanaugh, constitutes a complete abandonment of intellect and conscience.
Volcano’s Have you ever wondered how deadly a volcano is? They can be one of the deadliest natural disasters ever because of the harsh winds. They are formed from tectonic plates and there are 3 different types. Mt.Tambora is one of the worst ever.
It only takes a little mistake to damage the quality of the overall story. Hart notes, “Too much reportage and we cross into scholarship or journalism. Too much imagination and we cross into fiction,” (Hart 223). Writing non-fiction is a challenge, yet a doable one.
In the readings we were presented in the modules of this course, the authors have made claims and used pathos in order to strike fear and anger in the audience. They present the argument and evidence of one side, using interviews from those who share their point of view, and use powerful rhetoric to invoke emotion in the reader for their particular claim. There is no evidence for the other side, no points
The story constructed by Hewes has a deeply inspiring quality to it. However, it is my belief that although he does make efforts to disentangle the biographers and Hewes’ potential skewing of events, he does not go far enough at certain points. At times he seems to enable the old adage, “When the legend becomes fact, print the legend” without due skepticism. The strength of Young’s article rests on how well he buttresses the more questionable parts of the story with well sourced and verifiable information. His use of such a wide array of evidence to substantiate his narrative when viewed holistically, make up for the shortcomings of his less reliable
Mark Twain wrote about these topics that teachers of this age find hard to discuss. Jane Smiley in “Literature’s Dual Life in the Case of Huckleberry Finn” explains that “when a nation’s history is fraught with conflict” it is best to “talk it out” because these subjects are meant to be difficult and the only way to bring true understanding of it is to analyze it (Source K). The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is an irreplaceable tool to help understand the true historical context of such difficult issues. David Matthews in “Dumbing and Numbing Down Jim” clarifies that even removing the offensive words in the novel takes away from the actual meaning and history behind the story (Source F).
