    There have been many philosophers throughout time who’ve had ideas and opinions about the purpose and proper structure of the education systems. Two major examples would be Alfred North Whitehead and Wilhelm von Humboldt. This paper will present a succinct version of both of their thoughts on the integration of research and education within the system of universities, as well as a juxtaposition of their positions. In “Universities and their Function,” Whitehead writes that “[t]he universities are schools of education, and schools of research.” (Whitehead, “Universities,” 2). For the universities to properly serve these functions, they need to cultivate imagination in the students and in the faculty. In fact, he states that “A university is imaginative or it is nothing”(Whitehead, “Universities,” 2). This imagination comes from fruitful interaction between the students and faculty. However, for the faculty to be able to teach with imagination, they must learn themselves with imagination. Thus comes the importance of imaginative teachers and researchers. Whitehead writes “Do you want your teachers to be imaginative? Then encourage them to research. Do you want your researchers to be imaginative? . . . Make your researchers explain themselves to…

    essay. The God of Scriptures is sovereign (1 Tim. 6:15), immutable (Mal. 3:6), infinite (Jer. 10:10), perfect (Mat. 5:48), and prophetic (Is. 14:24). However, the God of Whitehead’s Process Theology is a source of meaning and reason; it changes and is changed, it is everlasting but imperfect and does not know the future. Therefore, the God of the Bible cannot be identical to the God of Process Theology. These are a few core issues and not an exhaustive list. Nevertheless, Process Theology’s…

    688). But as stated, Pompey too has given himself to the white hegemony and plans to forsake his community for personal gains. Pompey thus actually teaches Lila Mae that “she hated her place in their world, where she fell in their order of things, and blamed Pompey” (Whitehead 239). To push technological progress forward, Lila Mae accepts the inability she shared with Pompey and, like Fulton, decides to not fight directly against white hegemony. She lets them think what they want to think while…

In the short span of four parts, her tale spans the themes of dreams, imprisonment, misogyny, and death. Not only…

    Poetry is a journey into a new world of language that leaves readers fascinated. Poets take their time to intermingle different forms of figurative language to present their topic in a way that takes time to understand.

    Within “The Lady of Shallot”, James R. Kincaid argues that through the contrasting elements of fiction and reality, negative results occur as a means of drawing attention to the perpetual uncertainty within Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poem, “The Lady of Shallot”. This level of ambiguity is emphasized within the text through the Lady’s lack of agency, causing the events of the poem to be enacted on her rather than through her own devise. Kinkaid pushes forth the idea that the text removes the Lady’s…
