... s, we usually first remember by sight, then by sound, and last by the pronunciation of the word. There are many cell assembler in our body. Cell assemblers are basically many cells that are put together to preform a unified task, such as remembering. When cell assembly is developed, you can perceive an event, and you can also be able to perceive that really aren't there; such as when someone hallucinates something. When a child is growing up and maturing, the first three years or so are extremely important.

Susan Bordo - 1,092 words
Susan Bordo works at the University of Kentucky as the Otis A. Singletary Chair of Humanities. She also is a philosopher who deals with many traditional aspects of philosophy such as Rene Descartes and Sigmund Freud. However, what sets Bordo apart from most other philosophers is her training of the study of popular culture and representations of the body. She is a philosopher, that is, who writes not only about Plato but also about Madonna and O.J. (Bordo 138). Much of Bordos work as a teacher deals with the representation of the female body in marketing and advertising. She feels that most adds in the past and present set up gender identities and play off of the norms of society in the rep ...

Edward Gein - 811 words
Ed Gein was born at the turn of the century into the small farming community of Plainfield, Wisconsin. Gein lived on his family homestead with a weak, ineffectual brother and domineering mother who taught him from an early age that sex was a sinful thing. Eddie ran the family's 160-acre farm on the outskirts of Plainfield until his brother Henry died in 1944 and his mother in 1945. When she died her son was a thirty-nine-year-old bachelor, still emotionally enslaved to the woman who had tyrannized his life. The rest of the house, however, soon degenerated into a madman's shambles. "Weird old Eddie", as the local community knew him, began to develop a deeply unhealthy interest in the intimate ...

Seeing Tv - 1,844 words
I have watched television on many occasions throughout my life. When I was growing up I watched TV to pass the time on days when I could not go outside, and the whole day I would complain to my parents that, "there is never anything fun to do in the house." As a child I would sit down in the family TV room watching, what I now consider, mindless shows for hours upon end. I did that to relieve the current state of boredom that I was in. Little did I know that those wasted hours I spent in front of a box would shape some of my outlooks on people and life for the future. I did not come upon this realization until I started attending classes in the beginning of this semester. Through the reading ...

Booty - 827 words
The joy of the word "booty" Who likes booty? I like booty, and I think we should all like booty. Whether it is pirate's treasure or the beautiful behind of a woman, booty is a fantastic possession. I come from the lower class section of Ft. Lauderdale and in that area the booty is most often linked to the description of the African-American woman's posterior. I have always used the word booty, but recently I was told that it was a "black" term. I was shocked to hear this, and when I inquired as to why it was a "black" term, I was told that I shouldn't use words like that because they make me sound foolish. I do not always use the word booty but in some circumstances it is very necessary to u ...

And whilst this "Tornado of the West" is leaving in its wake a continuous trail of crushed moral values amongst our young brothers and sisters, the parents are openly and unashamedly displaying an attitude of incredible irresponsibility by aiding and abetting the youngsters in their suicidal ventures.

I Love Youlets Just Be Friends - 775 words
"I think we should just be friends." This famous line, expressed by millions of men during all-too-familiar break-up sessions, breaks girls' hearts repeatedly. The feeling of rejection permeates the female body entirely when this phrase enters the conversation. Why does this line come up so often right before the relationship starts getting serious? Questions like this run through the minds of women everywhere, especially those around the "marrying" age. What is it about men and commitment and why are they so afraid of it? The Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary defines commitment as an agreement or pledge to do something in the future; the state or an instance of being obligated or emotio ...

Degas - 391 words
Upon first impression one might see a nude as merely the representation of sexual desire. This is true in the instance of the Venus Anadyomne painted by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (plate 1), a typical representation of the nude in the mid-to-late 1800s. However, in the case of Edgar Degas, whose nudes are often sensually portrayed, the sexual nature of the nude is not the only message of the painting. Carol M. Armstrong said, the female nude has been linked ... to what we call, inadequately, abstraction: facture, the handling of paint per se, foregrounded as an obvious fact of the painting. If this is true, then understanding the artists technique in painting his subject is just as import ...

Psychological Feminist And Black Approaches To Dogma And The Problems Of Evil - 1,449 words
Why does evil exist? This is the question theodicy asks. Why would an all-loving, all-good, and all-powerful God allow suffering to take place? In this class, we've tried to understand varying answers to this question and others from many different perspectives: psychological, feminist, artistic, and African-American. Throughout this course we've read many authors who have tried to, if at least partially, solve the problem of suffering for themselves and for all of us as well. The movie Dogma displays many of these points- of-view in a single piece of artistic expression. It touches on concepts which have been espoused by psychologists such as Freud, feminists such as Saiving and Noddings, a ...

Art - 1,150 words
We all speak and act from our bodies, but what we actually consider as "our" or other peoples body is very much open to debate. The images shift and change threw the times and culture changes, and so does the perception of the "ideal" or "politically correct" body. In the world we live in, the body has become a commodity, a fetish. The appropriate or "politically correct" image of the body results in its veneration as an ideal and promotes a whole set of values behind the image. Therefore, it is interesting to look at the ways in which the body is promoted and advertised.

Who Is The Real Vilain In Macbeth - 800 words
Is Lady Macbeth the real villain of Macbeth? (500 words) I don't believe that Lady Macbeth can be seen as the real villain because she is only part of the reason why Macbeth decided to kill Duncan and Co. If she hadn't have promoted the idea of Macbeth being King he would never have killed Duncan. This is because Macbeth is a little soft, where's Lady Macbeth is someone who wants to get in there and get the job done to better herself. Macbeth seemed to like the idea of being King until he found that there were more than just Duncan who would stand in the way of him being King. He learned when he thought about it carefully that he had to go through the whole process of taking full control whi ...

The Sentiment, Mood, And Philosophy Of The Best Slow Dancer - 1,085 words
Feelings can twist reality in the most peculiar ways. Emotions push the mind to the most stunning conclusions, and stir within the soul the strangest storms. In fact, senses reach their peak in David Wagoners poetic work The Best Slow Dancer. In the poem, Wagoner brings out the height of sentiment through the eyes of a teenage boy at a school dance, who overcomes the teenage social hierarchy and his own fear to share in the longed-for dance with one special girl.
