  • Media Autobiography Essay

    I have always enjoyed listening to many different genres of music from jazz, to pop, to R&B, and Hip Hop; however, I have to admit that two particular genres, Neo-Soul and Hip Hop had the most impact in creating who I am today.

I have always been a musical soul due to fact that I have been singing and performing since I was 6 years old, but the first time I heard India Arie I realized that music had the…

  • Difference Between The Matrix And Nozick's

    Although in Nozick 's example, individuals start outside the machine, those in The Matrix, like Neo, begin life in the Matrix. Neo 's subsequent choice to unplug from the Matrix to confront the real world would go against status quo bias and aversion loss, which, I suggest, explains why The Matrix 's narrative revolves around sinister machine rulers, who treat humans as mere batteries, and aim…

  • Pheddo: The Affinity Argument In The Phaedo

    [Step 1] In the Phaedo, Socrates makes an argument that the soul must be immortal (78b-84b). This argument is referred to as the Affinity Argument. It begins at 78b in the Phaedo, when Socrates asks to which class of things the soul belongs. What Socrates means by the “soul” is the self; the mind (Phaedo 65c & 66e). What Socrates means by “class” is class of existence. This is best illustrated in another of Plato’s accounts of Socrates, The Republic, where his standard of measurement of…

  • Gilbert Ryle Criticism Of Dualism

    He is not wrong in his criticism of the fundamental language of dualism. For instance, saying there is a soul inside the body would be a mistake. Prepositions like in, out, and around have an unavoidable physical tone. If there is a soul, it cannot be “inside” the body. This kind of soul would be “nowhere” because it would not exist in space and would have no physical location. It would seem Ryle just wants Cartesians to be more careful with the words they use to explain dualism. It is not right…
