Personal Philosophy On Life - 511 words
I have no single philosophy for life, but rather three philosophies. Each of which has different meaning. My three philosophies include the following: work hard, take pride in myself and the accomplishments that I make, and also everyone is on this planet for a reason. In the following paragraphs I will explain each of my three philosophies. From this, I hope that others will understand why I look at life the way that I do. The first of my three philosophies, to work hard, can be very easily explained. I feel that if money or a gift given to me by another person because I earned the reward is much more valued. In other words, knowing that I worked hard, did a good job, and deserve a reward m ...

Song Of The Unsung Antihero - 2,676 words
Abstract: The sober treatment of a lowly, unheroic protagonist in Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman flatters the audience. The more obvious way that it flatters us is by alienating us from the protagonist in his downfall so that we watch his destruction from a secure vantage. Less obviously, the form of the play, typical of modern American tragedy, romanticizes the protagonist through what I call the audience's paradox, that tension created when a serious work of literature employs an obscure and lowly character as protagonist and so makes him the center of our attention, makes him famous. Many nineteenth and twentieth century writers seek to convey the experience of a lowly character chaf ...

Song Of The Unsung Antihero - 2,609 words
... of poverties, that greatest of indignities, death. In a less extreme form we have in Death the same technique that makes the formulaic horror movie ultimately so reassuring. In such movies, all but one or two characters are obviously victims, idiots who insist on backing into dusty, cobwebbed rooms while a heavy-handed score positively shouts warning. While these obvious victims are dropping like flies, the audience is encouraged to identify principally with the common-sensical hero who is marked from the beginning as a survivor. Happily, Miller rejects this emotional gimmick through the bulk of the play, drawing us into the foolish Willy Loman's psyche through a variety of experimental ...

If Capitol Walls Could Talk - 2,386 words
... upuy du Lome was forced to resign over the matter, and tensions between the US and Spain increased. Six days after Hearst published the Lome letter, the USS Maine sailed into Havana harbor. The surprised Spanish, who had only been given a few hours notice that the Maine was coming, were quite upset. Although the Maine claimed to be on a friendly mission, it was a powerful warship. The Spanish authorities felt that the US was trying to intimidate them and was interfering with Spanish sovereignty by trying to affect Spanish policy toward the Cuban insurrectos. On February 15, 1898, in an event that still remains a mystery, the Maine suddenly exploded as it sailed around Havana harbor. This ...

A Waif In The Wind Of Obsessive Corruption - 1,800 words
A Waif in the Wind of Obsessive Corruption! A professor once asked me to write an essay on what I thought was the philosophy of life. Assuming money was no object, and society permitted it, what would I consider my garden? Not giving it much thought, I threw together what I thought would suffice. Later, upon giving it considerable thought, I realized I truly had no opinion on the subject. My mother once told me that the meaning of life was in fact, life itself. She said that the ability to live and make our own destinies come true was the real reason behind our existence. However, society plays a large part in what we consider an ideal life. As children, were taught to conform, strive for su ...

My Philosophy Of Balance - 1,622 words
Balance. Our world depends upon it physically, psychologically, and spiritually. This principle, although easy to overlook, is the foundation of my personal philosophy. Without balance there is no harmony, no conflict and no growth. Any productive result, any achievement, any strength is useless without it. The balance in my world is achieved by these fundamental beliefs: God exists, and yet evil exists; all humanity does have free will and all these beliefs contribute to the development of a meaning for life. All of these beliefs are components of each other, an interdependent relationship that creates my personal philosophy. Each values participation in my final belief is measured and bala ...

Albert Ellis And William Glasser - 1,910 words
... has little to do with what can be changed right now, calling past problems "psychiatric garbage."(Page 37) The "what" of behavior is important then, not the "why" a client did something. The question is then, if the behavior is one way, can it be better? This is a very simple and straightforward look at therapy. What behavior is responsible for causing the difficulty and how do we modify it? He highlights in the Identity Society (1975) principles of Reality therapy: involvement of the therapist or helper, awareness of the current behavior, evaluating behavior to see if it is good for the client or people who care about the client, Planning responsible behavior, commitment to the plan (us ...

Nvironmentally Conscious Propoganda - 863 words
WRIT 140 September 11, 2000 Environmentally Conscious Propaganda Almost every single original concept today has become mainstream or shows a general trend towards becoming so. Propagandists realize this and often exploit these ideas, tainting their flavor of originality and creating a new generation of gullible "wannabes" who can partly adhere to any philosophy, but do not allow themselves to be inconveniences by certain doctrines. Anything that might elicit followers or have the potential to, has drawn the attention of these solicitor, yet one of the fastest growing target audiences today seem to be "nature lovers." Three examples extracted from various sources reveal that advertisers are t ...

Ten Mistakes Parents Make In Choosing A Boot Camp - 1,816 words
This is having the effect of empowering parents, giving them many more effective resources to which to turn when their struggling child is making self-destructive decisions. These new options enable parents to intervene before a tragedy develops. With that new ability and responsibility, comes the opportunity for parents to make their own mistakes.

Beloved By Toni Morrison - 746 words
In the article Marginalization of African Americans by Allen Lutins, states that the misery and so-called ghettoization of African Americans would be eliminated through a clear understanding of their historical conditions. Seths plight can only be fully inderstood if it is done within the framework of wherw she is coming from. Moreover, when myths dealing on welfare and the supposed antiquity of black rights in this country and the state are shattered, and when social programs and public education are funded amply and given sufficient time to achieve their goals. The author noted, that those who claim that all Americans have equal opportunities fail to recognize the importance of history. By ...

Dual Relationships As An Advocate Or A Mediator - 781 words
In this report we are going to explore the ethical, moral and legal challenges of the notion of dual relationships as an advocate or mediator. First of all I would like to give a short description for the two concepts: advocating and mediating. Advocating is considered to be the pure defending of a certain person, position, idea or else. Whereas mediating is somewhat different activity. In mediation, a neutral third party, i.e. mediator or two co-mediators, assists the disputing parties in finding their own mutually acceptable solution to the dispute. The parties agree to negotiated terms, if they can, making all of the decisions themselves. Mediation, like negotiation, seeks solutions where ...
