    A New Perspective On Africa “The only man I envy is the man who has not yet been to Africa- for he has so much to look forward to.”- Rich Mullins The continent of Africa is one of the most under recognized and under appreciated gems of the world. In the past, the continent of Africa was seen as barbaric and hopelessly primitive. Many believe the media propaganda that this continent is impoverished and under populated. By taking a deeper look at some often under-represented aspects of this great continent I realized that Africa is a magnificent continent with a richer history and more prosperous future than many other places in this world. One of the biggest misconceptions about Africa is its size. Out of the three most commonly used maps, two of them distort the true size of Africa. The Robinson Projection is normally used in secondary education. The Mercator Projection is the most commonly used map in education in this country and many others. This map greatly under-represents the true size of Africa. Looking at this map, the continent of Africa and the country of Greenland appear to be similar in size. The two are actually very different. Greenland is 800,000 square miles, while Africa is 11,700,000 square miles. This distorted view causes many to underestimate the size, vastness, and resources of Africa. Many do not realize that the continent of Africa is so large that it could fit the United States, India, China, Argentina, New Zealand, and the complete continent…

    For what my two cents are worth, Karl Marx is one of the greatest and most influential philosophers in history. In addition to the litany of ideas and thoughts he contributed to the eternally evolving world of philosophy, Marx is also a premiere example of how philosophers build of one another’s work. Marx drew from many of his predecessors, but there were two in particular that influenced Marx tremendously. Both Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel and Charles Darwin, made astronomical impacts on Karl…

    During the Industrial Revolution, Europe has no supported social services, no public education, no help for the disabled, no help for the sick or old, and no regulation of housing, industry, or child labor. There was the very wealthy, a very small middle class, and an increasing large lower class. England was much worse, but this happened all over Europe. America’s industrialism had similar results but to a lesser degree that the European peasants experienced. The society Marx lived in was this…

    learn to know spiritual nature in its existence, that is, the point where Spirit and Nature unite, namely, human nature” (Hartman). Hegel goes on to explain the purpose of human activity by using great men in world history and what drove them to carry out their purpose and goals. People that are driven to reach a goal, are the ones that are internally self-driven to accomplish great things in the world. The power that these individuals have is their ability to be self-driven…

    German Philosopher, Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, believed Antigone was an unrivaled example to support his claim on tragic collisions: stating that there isn't a tragic hero, only a collision between two who are equally right in their own standards. Antigone and Creon both had justified views in this play written by Sophocles— Antigone focusing more of lawful ethics and the Creon based more on family morals. This does, indeed, support Hegel's theory of a tragic collision, but only to an extent to…

    Each and every day us as humans face difficult struggles between cherished ethics such as equivalence, freedom, autonomy, and impartiality. “Using lethal insecticides to kill “pests” has huge consequences up the food chain, all the way to human beings. One of the difficult challenges of sustainability is that the notion requires up to expand our understanding of who and what belongs to our community.” I will agree with Rachel Carson on that previous statement. We beings are so quick to judge…

He attended private school where he joined a radical group later becoming the president. While studying in London with…

The dialectic approach can be applied to many different areas of teaching to enhance the educational delivery and the resulting understanding of the students.
