Cogito Ergo Sum Descartes Argument
1,454 wordsDescartes Meditations Descartes Cogito Ergo Sum (I am, I exist) argument is a complex one. In many ways, he constructs a convincing argument for the existence of the self, and for the process of the thinking being, the essence of that self. In this meditation on his philosophy, Descartes on numerous attempts tries to convince both the readers, as well as himself, of his theory that we must reject all of our present ideas and beliefs and start from nothing. He believes that the only thing that ha...

Book And Movie Worth A Thousand
772 wordsIs a picture really worth a thousand words, or do words inspire and free the imagination? It has always been my experience that books are truly the better of the two mediums when it comes to releasing the imagination and providing the reader with an in-depth story. Perhaps with the book Cry the Beloved Country it will be different; perhaps the movie will unleash the viewers imagination with greater success than the somewhat dated book. Let s analyze three aspects of the book and movie and see ho...

Diversity Every Day Teach Our Children Pooh
1,030 wordsIn comparing childrens programs for their use of cultural diversity I watched several segments of Rugrats, Winnie the Pooh, and Out of the Box. The animated programs, Rugrats and Winnie the Pooh, dealt with diversity in much the same way. Out of the Box, however, was put together on a different level. The Rugrats is a delightful cartoon about a group of adventurous babies that are always getting into one thing or the other. The babys personalities are all quite different and ones weakness is off...

Animals In Captivity Animals To Live Zoos
533 wordsAre Doing Time Doing Time Are zoos really safety retreats for exotic animals or wretched prisons? When I was a child, I used to think that zoos were cheerful and exciting places to go, wonderful places where humans helped misplaced animals to live happy lives. However, I was very wrong! Fortunately, I was blinded by the clowns and cotton candy and did not see that the animals were not happy or cheerful, and the zoos were not wonderful places. Now that I am an adult, I have come to realize just h...

625 wordsEpithalamion is an Epithalamion Epithalamion Epithalamion is an interesting mixture of negatives and positives for me. I found parts of it interesting and well written. However, I found other parts that I am less enthusiastic about. Spenser used many different devices in this poem that make it stand out from many other similar poems from the same time period. Epithalamion is a wedding song, traditionally sung on the threshold of the bedchamber. It was usually narrated by a sort of emcee, but Spe...

Piano Concerto Full Attention
603 wordsFranz Josef Haydn wrote quite a few concerti for piano, which have never really enjoyed the popularity of such pieces by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. While some accuse Haydn's piano concerti of being too light or having no meaning, I find those to be inaccurate surface impressions. I have found a great deal of enjoyment from these pieces of Haydn, and one of my favourites of his piano concerti is the seventh. Haydn's seventh piano concerto was written in the key of F Major, and is in incredibly chee...
