  • An Argument Against Three Points In Plato's The Republic

    Even Genius People can be Wrong (An Argument against three points in Plato’s The Republic) “What should young people do with their lives today? Many things, obviously. But the most daring thing is to create stable communities in which the terrible disease of loneliness can be cured.” (Vonnegut) Plato explains the perfect city and their perfect kind. He follows the idea of Vonnegut’s stable community and uses many different ideas to explain how to create this perfect city. Some of his best points, the ones that I agree with the most, are that a philosopher should be king, people should be divided into classes through education, and that everyone should have their place and job. Sadly, not everyone can be perfectly right all of the time. It is difficult to for one man or even one woman to convey all of his ideas in a way that will please everyone. There are some points that Plato makes in The Republic that are can be argued against, such as the idea of an afterlife, the idea of education, and when you decline in social status, you can’t ascend. One point that can be argued against in Plato’s Republic is his idea of an afterlife. “Hear the word of Lachesis, the daughter of Necessity. Mortal souls, behold a new cycle of life and mortality. Your genius will not be allotted to you, but you choose your genius; and let him who draws the first lot have the first choice, and the life which he chooses shall be his destiny.” (Republic) Plato explains that his idea of the afterlife…

  • Reflection On Katrina Andrews

    to the client, not what you perceive to be the biggest problem. Sometimes the client will not always voice what their biggest problem is, which is why it takes keen observation and open ended questions to discover the client’s real need(s). My personal goals for next week at CC4C are: I will ask my preceptor about the ways, if any, to provide input into being a part of providing education before going to the first visit. If acceptable to preceptor, I will ask my client, one question about her…

  • Rewarding In Nursing

    The most rewarding part of nursing is to be able to help people as a career. However, it is not always as nice as it sounds to be. I was stroked with an event during my clinical rotation in the last year of my nursing school 1993 that influenced my decision making in my nursing career. A 7 year old boy was brought to ER who was a severe burning victim with no one inch of normal skin. The kid, coming from a very low income family, suffered from the burning accident in a concrete trash house came…

  • Reflection Of The Interview Journal

    Later in 2012 my husband and I filled bankruptcy. My husband blamed me a lot for this because of the huge pay cut I had taken. We went from being able to purchase three to four hundred dollars of groceries to maybe fifty dollars of groceries every couple of weeks. Three years after starting work with Dr. Sheila Hill my hours started being cut. I went two weeks without working and no pay. I knew there was no way I could take this kind of pay cut. On the days I had off I would go around town…

  • Analysis Of The Sacrifice Of Purusha

    1. “The Sacrifice of Purusha” – In this narrative the Gods used Purusha to create the worlds. From Purusha came the verses and chants, the meters from that, the formula from that, and from that came horses, animals with double rows of teeth, cows, goats, and sheep. Purusha’s mind became the moon, his eye became the sun, his mouth turned into Indra and Agni, from his breath the wind was created, from his navel the atmosphere, from his head the heavens, from his feet the earth, and from his ear…

  • Bible Flood Essay

    Looking thoroughly at evidential proof of a worldwide flood, there are multiple biblical accounts, written accounts, and scientific statements that many scholars believe the claims of the catastrophic event [the worldwide flood] actually happened. Is there really evidence that proves the world wide flood actually happened that is written about in the book of Genesis? The Bible gives testimony of the Great Flood and how it covered the whole earth: “Now the flood was on the earth forty days. The…

  • The Importance Of Pre-Parenthood

    have always wanted the things you have now and are, as you have always been, a very fulfilled person, and my existential angst is entirely foreign to you. I laugh awkwardly when we are talking in order to avoid crying because really the issues we discuss, i.e. the (inescapable?) futility of life, are not funny topics. They are quite morbid and I don’t quite know how to escape that overwhelming and persistent feeling of dread without pushing my qualms onto someone else to write a manifesto that…

  • Compare And Contrast The Epic Of Gilgamesh And The Great Flood

    Epic of Gilgamesh, The cause was the gods being irritated and not getting sleep; and the survivor only being Utnapishtim and his wife. Also in the story of Genesis, it is God being upset with the corruptness, like in the Incas story. But Genesis also only had noah and his family survive. There is one huge difference that is a very important detail in The Epic of Gilgamesh and in Genesis, there is no ark built to ride out this flood. The farmers reside to a cave very high up with their families.…

  • Why My Mother Died Today

    implies the word “meaninglessness” very well. To him the perception of marriage is different from the others. The certain social norms ‘love’ as a serious matter and ‘marriage’ as an important social institution are one of the ritualized beliefs which Meursault has given up earlier, even he gave up his ambition. Meursault had settled himself into a style of life in which inarticulate personal needs and satisfactions dictate spontaneous responses to the demands of nature and others. In every part…
