    Beaujorne Sirad A. Ramirez Philo 201 The Implication of the Presocratic Philosophy In the contemporary times, scientists have been exploring the beginning of everything. From the Big Bang theory and the Theory of Evolution, scientists searched and analyzed the universe and the possibility (and impossibility) of coming from nothing and the hereditary lineage as animals from monkeys. The very idea of beginning shows the very origin that will make people understand their very selves and why people are acting this way. By tracing the origin, one looks for a reason on how everything became into its present form. The origin describes the reason for everything. On the other hand, the search for the origin is not a novel idea. Since the Ancient…

    One of the greatest questions that we, as mankind, have had the liberty in trying to decipher is how we came to be. How was the universe formed? How did the world become as it is? What are the building blocks of all things? Some say the world just is. Others take refuge in the “Big Bang.” Some firmly believe that God created both the heavens and the earth. In this essay, however, I am going to divulge the thoughts and reasons behind some of the Pre-Socratic views of the Cosmos and the building…

    A Philosophical Stand-Off The pre-Socratic philosophers were among the first to lay the foundation upon which our current beliefs and philosophies were built upon. These philosophers of ancient Greece were some of the very first scholars to apply logic to the universe and attempt to rationalise the world around them. Just the thought that these individuals had such a colossal ability to infer, with regard to the era they presided in and the resources accessible to them, is simply remarkable.…

    Greek philosophy is widely considered as the beginning of organized Western thought. Mathematics, science (including biology, cosmology, and physics), political theory, psychology and more were all developed in the Greek era. Ancient Greece’s influence on philosophy is so abundant that the works of Plato are often considered the footnotes of western philosophy. In making such a bold conviction it is only to say that Ancient Greece marked the starting point for Western philosophy. In this paper I…

    After watching the movie "A Beautiful Mind" i learned a wide range on how critical thinking can take form in many quiet and sneaky ways and just how important it really is. This movie would be very helpful to a student of Critical Thinking because of those reasons. It shows the hit/effect critical reading has with a practical example and shows how it can affect us in or day to day lives and how much we can benefit from thinking critically and how much we can loss by having a "dull" mind. In the…

    As a movie fanatic and today's film curator i think it's important to spread the indie spirit. The definition of Independent films comes from its rebellious relationship with the origins of american cinema itself. Indies are defined as being made outside of the studio system but the connotations of what that actually means are usually blurred. Today i will convince my audience to watch more independent films instead of commercial films. My three main points are that Indies are more personal,…

    just slapped me in the face and made things worse. I met with a UNM academic advisor, and I would say that I do not particularly like him because he made me question myself as to why I am even going to school and he basically made me feel like I would not be able to succeed as a pre-med student. I got offered a transfer scholarship and a grant from UNM; the catch is that I have to be enrolled in 15 credit hours there and I cannot use a consortium agreement, which basically states that I am…

    within the narrative. Early on, pre production, we did not distribute roles to each individual because we wanted everyone to share responsibilities; However, towards the end we agreed on roles based on what occurred in production. The idea behind not giving each other roles was to offer different perspectives, a new set of eyes with the desire to improve the final product. In a larger project, switching roles frequently would not work, but because we are…

    As an avid book reader, my response to “book or movie,” is always book. The book has free reign to take one where the author intended for one to go. A movie has no such ability. It is constrained by social obligations and media requirements. Often, the director of said movie is unable to dig into the details and moments the author has laid before one. This is additionally accurate for those telling a true story. Many vital parts of the story line are left out because the director saw them not…
