    Pure set theory deals exclusively with sets, so the only sets under consideration are those whose members are also sets. The theory of the hereditarily-finitesets, namely those finite sets whose elements are also finite sets, the elements of which are also finite, and so on, is formally equivalent to arithmetic. So, the essence of set theory is the study of infinite sets, and therefore it can be defined as the mathematical theory of the actual—as opposed to potential—infinite.”…

    Should There Be Infinite

    To the best of our knowledge, humans are the only creatures on earth that are able to contemplate infinity. We commonly talk about the infinite universe (which cosmologists now tell us is almost certainly finite but unbounded), we speak of infinite number series, such as the set of even numbers, and we use it metaphorically, as in saying someone has “infinite patience.” Time itself is spoken of as infinite, though it is always tied to finite objects which are changing and we can 't even come…

    If evil and irrationality are truly parts of human nature, they would be evident in society. For both Golding and Conrad, civilization seemed full of mankind’s evil. Golding commented that Lord of the Flies was his “attempt to trace the defects of society back to the defects of human nature” (Epstein 204). It is about the failure of civilization to overcome evil (Thapliyal and Kunwar 86). Civilization on the island seems to be in ruins, but the outside world is in much bigger shambles. The story…

    After drawing out a diagram of the classroom I am observing in for the first part of this narrative I realized after including everything on the drawing the organization of this classroom contributes to the academic and social growth of the diverse learners in the classroom. It is very important for a classroom like this to be set up the way it is presented especially for a small special ed class with only 7 students. One way the organization contributes to academic and social growth for…

    It’s first important to note what the word ‘Princeps’ means. It comes from ‘Princeps Senatus’, meaning ‘First among equals’, which gave an individual the privilege of being the first to speak in the Senate and being the first name on the roster. This title was used officially by Augustus (then Octavian) because it had no royal connotations. In actuality, Augustus had auctoritas (‘authority’) far greater than that of merely a Princeps. He was an Emperor, but he did not explicitly say so, for his…

    In the Osiris, Isis, and Horus story, the cycle of life is mainly represented by the life, death, and rebirth of Osiris. In a context of nature as well, since Osiris was considered the god of the Nile, it was said that when the river dried up and vegetation died, it symbolized the death of Osiris. The same way during spring, when vegetation started to grow and the Nile River flooded again, it represented the rebirth of the mentioned god. I believe Isis had more than one role. She was Mother and…

    On activity 1.8 I helped my group members understand the handshake problem, which we first experimented with in a class activity. At first some of my group members wanted to just count the amount of people there were and multiply it by the amount of handshakes that each person would perform if they shook hands with every person. I realized the problem with using this method is that some handshakes would be performed twice, we wanted the amount of handshakes if each person shook hands with every…

    My post-formalist period: Learning about history through literature and philosophy As I posited in my theory critique, post-formalism describes a process of drawing upon one’s personal experience, and combining it with knowledge acquisition in order to make sense of the world and one’s place in it. In this scenario, the teacher takes on the role of facilitator – one who is responsible for providing the opportunity to arrive at that crossroads. This is how I came to gain a more nuanced…
