    Mother Teresa In our world, there are many people who work to achieve justice. Most of those heroes do not think about themselves, they only think about others, and how they can improve their world and their society. Every one of them has their own way to help the people around them. They spend a lot of effort, money, time and for some even their life to make the world a better place for others. Some of them use their position to help people; others do not have anything except their strength and their time, so they decide to use what they have to help anyone in need of it.. Those people do not want to be a famous person, or gain money. If a regular person wonders why anyone would do this?

    fortune (catastrophe). According to Aristotle, th peripeteia and anagnorisis must go hand to hand, leading up to the creation of the catastrophe. However in Medea, no real peripeteia can be observed because of the fact that Medea is determined and planning her revenge on Jason is some form. Euripides 's attempt at including peripeteia is so faint that it results in Medea lacking an anagnorisis as there is no peripeteia that precedes it. Aristotle also believes that a tragedy must contain…

    to “fatal results”. The very notion that Medea evades punishment “in this chariot which the Sun has sent to save her from the hands of enemies” is a testimony to the idea that the combatant forces of reason and passion are arbitrary in the larger scheme of our existence. Although the human mind is accustomed to manifesting itself in binary oppositions constituted of reason and passion which extends to all facets of life, such a notion is underplayed in the face of god. Removed from our…
