  • Lila Mae In Lord Of The Flies

    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 she works on the perfect elevator.

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 most…

(1, exposition) Therefore, in this regard, the use of metaphors is relative to one’s own experiences. This is to say that it points to “process” as a part of the process theology, and does not mean to suggest that things are undergoing some sort of change. (14, exposition) Things are…

Fiction helps make history into a story that enables an in depth perspective on historical events and Whitehead uses character to exemplify the emotions and situations felt through slaves at this time period.
