Billy Pilgrim Ideal Society
1,267 wordsDescription of this essay: Slaughter House five Could theirs be the ideal society? It's quite possible. Vonnegut's portrayal of the extraterrestrials known as Tralfamadorians is nothing short of amazing. Their knowledge, insight, and beliefs are both stunning and thought-provoking. To be quite honest, it was the only element of the story that grasped and kept my attention. Who would have thought that upon opening a book titled Slaughter House-Five that they would have been greeted by aliens rese...

Communism The Ideal Society
1,359 words... and puts them in terms of an exchange value. They reduce all that is noble and admirable about humanity to monetary matters, all in the name of capitalism.

The bourgeois creates a system in which anything and everything is measured by its strict cash worth. Now that the roles of the bourgeoisie...

Plato And Aristotle Aristotle Politics
1,813 wordsOn hearing the word politics, what usually springs to mind are images of government, politicians and their policies or more negatively the idea of corruption and dirty tricks. The actual definition seems to have been obscured and almost lost by such representations and clich's that tend not to pinpoint the true essence, which defines this thing, called politics. In order to make an attempt at a definition of politics a systematic approach is required. To begin with, a brief historical overview w...

Ideal Society Society Based
1,883 wordsCritics of The Republic, Plato's contribution to the history of political theory, have formed two distinct opinions on the reasoning behind the work. The first group believes that The Republic is truly a model for a political society, while the other strongly objects to that, stating it as being far too fantastic for any society to operate successfully by these suggested methods. In an exchange between Crito and Dionysius, this argument is first introduced, with Crito siding with those who agree...

Third World Countries Division Of Labor

Plato Critique Of Democracy The Equality
1,237 wordsIn order to clearly understand why Plato seems to find democracy and the democratic soul so objectionable one must first understand the definition of what democracy means. Plato's discord with democracy does not concern the democracy we know today nor does it directly concern Athenian democracy. Rather, it is the Form of democracy in which he criticizes. For a Greek (man), democracy, meant the rule of the people in a much more literal sense than it does for the citizens of most of the modern sta...

Before attempting a comparison of Enlightenment thought and that of Rousseau, it should be noted that the Enlightenment consisted of a large group of individual thinkers who were often not in agreement and thus, as Crocker points out, the ideas generated by the movement consisted of a vortex of conflicting theories and proposals (1969, p 1). However, bearing this lack...

Belief In God Spoke Zarathustra
1,545 wordsTHE PHILOSOPHY OF FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE Sometimes philosophy is called timeless, implying that its lessons are of value to any generation. This may be hard to see in Nietzsche's work; but, we are assured that it was appropriate thought for his time.

Rousseau And Marx Sought The Equality Mackinnon
849 wordsRousseau and Marx spearhead the movement of the worker. They attempt to alter current, unjust, stifling situations and bring a natural equivalence to all.

MacKinnon, a raging feminist? would probably not disagree with Marx on that point, like wed all think, but agree with him. For it would take away ...
