  • Personal Narrative: My First Black Baby Doll

    had a slight effect on my interpretation of my role in society. I was unaware that movies such as Snow White and Cinderella were trying to teach me where I was supposed to fit into society. I never understood why the only accessories for my dolls were either pretty clothes or beautiful furniture. I chose instead to steal my brother’s G.I. Joe toys. Spaceships, jeeps, guns and mountain climbing equipment, was much more exciting than new pots and pans. My Barbie’s were never married or even dating; they were always off on grand expeditions. The women that I picked as role models from movies were always strong and independent. They were always going against what was the normal standard way for a lady to act. My Barbie’s were Rosalind Russell from His Girl Friday, or Katherine Hepburn in any number of movies. They flaunted their lack of need for a man to give them approval. They went against the hierarchy of society as described by Artz (Artz, 384). These women never seemed to be helpless, and while they always ended up with a man, in the end, it seemed to me it was always more on their terms. They never really seemed to conform, it was much more of a compromise. The men in their lives had to accept them on their terms or not at all. From my position, I never really gave much thought to whom minorities might turn to for role models. The only black characters that I can recall from both TV shows and movies are as Leary describes, “servants and buffoons” (Leary,…

  • Rediscovering DNA: James Watson And Francis Crick

    together. With their combined experience “they decided not to focus on x-ray crystallography”, but instead chose to build models of the molecule (Moitra 20). The model building focus left them with a need for the facts. In order to build an accurate model, Watson and Crick needed research to base the model off of. After speaking with an x-ray crystallographer, Maurice Wilkins, Watson and Crick decide to attend a lecture given by Rosalind Franklin, Wilkins’ Partner (Moitra 21-22). Their meeting…

  • Socrates Response To The Apology Analysis

    It is apparent that Euthyphro does not truly know what piety is; therefore, his soul is not in the best possible state since he has false beliefs. Certainly, money can buy education; however, it cannot buy true knowledge, which can only be attained through one 's desire and persistence to do philosophy. True knowledge, unlike wealth, is embedded within oneself. Even if Euthyphro had money to buy education to know what piety truly is, he would not know until he does philosophy. Bertrand Russell…

  • Wittgenstein Analysis

    What in the Tractatus is Wittgenstein Talking About? Early Wittgenstein seems to suggest that sentences of natural science have meaning, without being able to give meaning to the way of which we understand those sentences. This dismisses philosophy as only a tool to help clarify claims of natural science. However, he uses philosophy to come to this realization. He makes the realization that the way he explains his own findings are in fact a violation of those findings stating, “My propositions…
