  • The Pre-Socratic Philosophy

    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…

  • Heraclitus And Parmenides Comparison Essay

    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.

  • Greek Influence On Western Philosophy

  • Doctrine And Covenants

    The Doctrine and Covenants goes on to tell us more about whom some of God’s children chose to follow.

  • Pre Production Reflection

    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…

  • The Giver: Book Vs. Movie

    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…

  • Essay On Being A Pre-Med Student

    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…
