    Final Paper: David Lewis Prompt In his work, Mad Pain and Martian Pain, David Lewis argues that we can apprehend the concept of pain by applying an ambiguous, yet effective Materialist Mixed Theory of mind. The Mixed Theory of mind includes an Identity Theory and a Functionalist Theory—which Lewis must necessarily accept in order to have his theory of pain. Phenomenologists argue that Lewis fails to account for the experience of pain—the what it is like to be in pain and to feel pain. I will argue that David Lewis does not appropriately defend the Phenomenologist’s objections. The phenomenal experience of pain is not fully accounted for when we try to understand the concept of pain with physicalist and functionalist theories alone. 1: Key…

    This claim is complete bogus, and here why. As previously stated, George killing lennie would mean much more to both of them, then a person who doesn 't have a bond with neither of them. Also, Curley killing Lennie would result in a greater amount of physical pain to Lennie, because Curley was going to shoot him in the gut, and the pain would be long lasting. While George was going to kill him quickly, which would result in less pain. Therefore, George undoubtedly made the right right decision. …

    Near the end of the school year I broke my collarbone for the second time in a year. As a result, along with other injuries suffered at the same time, I had to quit football and wrestling, and I believed I would never play a sport again.

At the same time as all of this, I was still trying to complete my freshman year of high school, which was only my second year in public school.…

    parents tried to help me recover as best they could. I was unable to look past the terrible things that had happened to me and became bitter and resentful as a result. It was around this time that I became increasingly embarrassed of my scar and my learning deficits. I was sick of being seen differently (having grown up with the same kids almost my entire life) and began to hate going to school. The summer before my freshman year of high school, I was in Mexico with my family and friends when…

    The nights were the hardest part for him; he could not stay asleep due to the pain in his back, and he struggled going to the bathroom because he would almost always feint when he would stand up. I would wake up with him in the middle of the night and have him sit in a rolly chair so I could wheel him to the bathroom. He was unable to take his pain medicine until very late at night, so I would stay up with him and massage his back to help take the pain away. One night, it was close to 4 in the…
