    one could find Woodruff’s definitions of Art, Human, Action, and Worth to be useful, meaningful, and/or valid. Paul Woodruff defines art as a system of techniques that can be learned, refined, and mastered. Merriam Webster defines art as something that is created with imagination and skill and that is beautiful or that expresses important ideas or feelings. The way Woodruff defines art seems to be more of a complex definition opposed to Merriam Webster’s simpler definition. In my opinion, when…

    begins with definitions. The Oxford English dictionary labels the process and point of definitions to be, stating or describing the nature of scope of meaning of a specific term.

In modern science, numerous theories have been developed and many studies have been conducted that would prove Euclid’s statement to be false. Due to theories not being scientific fact, one cannot blankly state that Euclid’s definition is…

The definition of a true friend has changed over time. “The Japanese have a term, Kenzoku, which translated means “family”. The connotation suggests a bond between people who’ve made a similar commitment and share a similar destiny. It implies the presence of the deepest connection of friendship, of lives lived as comrades from the distant past.” (Lickerman, Alex. “The True Meaning of Friendship.” Psychology…

    effective reproductive technology when trying to accomplish this. In this paper, I will argue that surrogacy redefines the definition of family in a positive light. Surrogacy is changing the world we live in for the better by creating bonds between human beings based on relationships, emotions, and choice instead of genetics. Although genetics are an important factor in the definition of a ‘traditional’ family, its significance is greatly diminished today. Surrogacy has been around since…

    dialogue Euthyphro, Socrates inquires into the nature of piety and goodness by questioning Euthyphro, whom Socrates deems to be somewhat of an expert on moral matters. Euthyphro defines piety as being that which the gods love. Socrates argues that this definition brings about a dilemma (named the Euthyphro dilemma) that Socrates believes has only two options, both of which challenge the common role that god and religion play in relation to morality. I will argue that perhaps these two options do…
