  • Anselm Kieefer Ash Flower Analysis

    Anselm Kiefer- Ash flower Anselm Kiefer is a German painter born in 1945 and belongs to a group of artists who although did not personally experience World War 2, were profoundly affected by its aftermath. In his early work, the themes in Kiefer’s paintings revolved around myth and history, incorporating the Nazi ruling over Germany as his main historical theme (Tate, 2014). Kiefer’s debut piece largely referenced this. In this performance piece he is dressed in his father’s war uniform, making the iconic Nazi salute (Heroische Sinnbilder Fig.1). Kiefer is most famous for the works that reference this period of time. In fact, he has done little work on other subject matter during his time as an artist. This is due to the fact he believes the topic of Auschwitz is far too complex to be covered artistically in one lifetime. He…

  • Anselm Kiefer And Monet Analysis

    artists that have inspired me the most so far in my work are Anselm Kiefer, the Chapman brothers and Monet.

Monet was…

  • Essay On Descartes Ontological Argument

    So, by its very nature, the supremely perfect being must exist. The ontological argument gives us ideas for some other properties that must be possessed by the supremely perfect being. This being must be omnipotent. If it weren 't, a more powerful being would be greater than the greatest being. Using this mechanism, St. Anselm identified other properties that are intrinsic to the nature of a supremely great being. This being must be ultimately just. This being must be ultimately good. This being…

  • Pros And Cons Of Unlimited Spirit

    The difference being that angels, although living in eternity, were not before for all else that is, which is only God. So angels are created spiritual beings and because of this they are limited, they have a beginning.

  • Saint Thomas Aquinas: Proving The Existence Of God

    then and there at that second. God is outside of time meaning he is eternal. Augustine then admits that Gods knowledge of the world entails necessity, to deny that is incompatible with freedom (Palmer, 118). He believes that freedom is the capacity to do what you want when you want even if God already knows what you want (Palmer, 118). I do agree with Saint Augustine`s way of thinking. I have actually thought about the fact that God determines every choice we make in life and this reasoning…

  • Ontological Argument

    Theists think that it is ridiculous that the Universe can exist without a cause, and, have come to the assumption that the universe was created by God, who exists without a cause, complete with a range of intrinsic traits and values. We can see that although theists believe in god(s) and atheists don 't, both have some similar assumptions about how the universe came to exist. St Anselm (1033-1109), who was the Catholic archbishop of Canterbury and a Doctor of the Church, first created the…

    It is greater to exist in intelectu and in re than in intelectu alone 4. A being than which no greater can be conceived can’t exist just in intelectu, since a greater being could be conceived that exists both in re and in intelectu 5. Therefore God must exist in the intelectu and in re Anslem then goes on to state that God does not rely on anything else for his existence, making him a necessary being, whose existence is solely based off his essence. In comparison to everything else which relies…

  • Existence Of God Research Paper

    Beshoy Hanna The existence of God Essay 3 The existence of God has come into question since the beginning of time. Throughout history, philosophers have searched for an answer to creation.
