Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is a comparison of Naturevs. Nurture. Some critics argue that the Being is a monster from birth, while others claim that it cannot be limited to such a narrow category. The argument lies in the education of the Being. He is not a born killer, but is created by the rejection of society. The Being is born an innocent creature with ability to appreciate the sublime, but after learning about human emotions, he is transformed into a monster through the emotional rejection he receives from a human family.
The Being is ignorant about the world around him for the first half of his life. He does not harm or attack another human being. He moves and reacts in similarVIEW DOCUMENT

The debate between Art and Nature in The Tempest is very much based on the Renaissance debate, on whether “civilized man” or the "natural man" was superior. The advocates of “civilized man” presenting the "natural man" as being savage, intemperate and brutal in contrast to the nobility, self-control and high-mindedness of the “civilized man”. The advocates of "natural man" presenting him as what Rousseau was later to term the "noble savage" and the civilized man as being corrupt, affected, merely more adept at cloaking his vices, which were at best more refined, but nevertheless hardly a reason for pretensions to moral high ground. Montaigne, inVIEW DOCUMENT

The creature is Rousseau's natural man, a creature no different that the animals responding only to physical needs. It is only later through contact with the DeLaceys (society) that the creature develops a consciousness and realizes that he is a societal outcast. While alluding to a couple of Rousseau's ideas, in particular the natural man, Mary Shelley utilized the theories of Hartley and Locke for the development and education of the creature.

Another possible analogy of the Borg is the sense of being programmed like the replicants. The old argument of natureVsnurture: How much do our genes control how we will live our lives? Our dependence on machines is one popular theme in science fiction including Star Trek. The Borg are cyborgs--completely dependent on their mechanical components to survive. In modern society, how much do we depend on machines to survive? The Borg reflects several aspects of our own human society and human self.

Behavioralism is an approach that believes that political science needs to be handled and studied scientifically, instead of just focusing on norms and values. The approach also studied “how individual really behave in a group” instead of studying about “how they should behave”.

What could possibly have influenced the children today to become more aggressive? The answer is simple, the media. Children today are exposed to television shows, songs, video games, movies, and music videos that express, or show, more anger, violence, and profanity than what children from ten years ago were not. It is the media that is making America more violent than ever.

1621 words - 6 pagesMorality is tangible with rationality. There are moral norms common to civilized states that influence strategy. However, when national interests are at stake, most states limited the importance of moral factors. The core of realism remains: national interest trumps all other interest. Necessity and reason supersede morals and ethics. Thus, morality as it relates to strategy is relative, not universal.
Carl von Clausewitz describes the essence of war as “the act of force to compel the enemy to do our will.” States have no limits in the amount of force each side will use to reach “absolute victory”. The amount of force must match the effort of the enemy to produce positive factors. In addition, there is not a limit to the means used for...VIEW DOCUMENT

Drawings and other self-generated forms of visual art produced by people suffering from mental illness sparked the interest of psychiatrists around the end of the 19th century. They were considered “outpourings of the mind in turmoil” (Rubin 6). Fascinated by these samples of artwork, psychiatrists began to study them in an attempt to better understand the creator and the illness. Art therapy is a fluid, adaptable and evolving field. Today art therapists employ a variety of methods and work in a variety of rehabilitation settings, but the focus of this paper is the use and benefits of visual art therapy in correctional settings. Unfortunately, there has been little research to measure the effectiveness of art therapy in...VIEW DOCUMENT
2062 words - 8 pagesWhen discussing the National Socialist movement that swept through Germany it is often generalized that Hitler’s oratory genius allowed him to acquire overwhelming support and achieve dictator status. However one can’t help but wonder; who were these people that went along with him, and why did they do so? Were they truly brainwashed by the Nazi ideology or did they only agree with some of it? Theodore Hamerow in his monograph “On the Road to the Wolf’s Lair” tackles these questions by taking a look at key members of the conservative resistance in the military elite, bureaucrats and religious figures. Hamerow goes back as far as the immediate aftermath of World War I to look at the ideas, beliefs and plans of these individuals. He then...VIEW DOCUMENT

Devoe emphasizes this reasoning in an article entitled, “Same-Sex Marriage Isn’t About Freedom,” which states “Gay marriage is individual freedom’s ‘decisive blow’ because it destroys the last communal restraint: traditional marriage” (Devine). Even with people’s disapproval to gay marriage, there are others who are strongly for it. Same sex marriages are able to benefit the society in many ways such as political,...VIEW DOCUMENT

However, nowadays this wise saying can be converted to “Hidden in the glorious wildness like un-recycled gold”. Gold recovery has vast benefits contrasted with gold producing. Gold mining requires huge amounts of money and causes environmental pollution. Moreover, unjust exploitation of labor occurs during the mining. To prevent these problems, the business of recycling gold was founded and it is rising recently. By examining the benefits of recycling gold in terms of environment, economy and humanity, the importance of reprocessing gold can be emphasized.

2719 words - 11 pagesAs Nils Christie argued, crime is a property of the state (2004). As such, it can be defined by the same systems of ideals which influence the state. Crime statistics, which refer to a category of human acts that society view as deviant, can consequently be argued to be without objectivity (Dorling and Simpson, 1999). The statistics they provide are thus arguably not exact. To a certain extent one could infer they are reflections of society, of those who present the data and most importantly of those who accumulate it. The facts themselves become a socially constructed foundation for social knowledge, which inevitably become subjective. This essay aims to discuss how ideological biases within the Police and to a certain extent the...VIEW DOCUMENT

Missing pieces of history cast shadows of mystery over the Trojan War. For thousands of years, writers and artists have never stopped their obsession with this legendary past of myths and history. One of the greatest woks is Homer’s epic, the Iliad and the Odyssey. Following Homer, poets created a series of epic, with the background of the Trojan War, and these different epic works constitute a systematic epic group, the Epic Cycle. Inspired by Homer’s the Iliad, Director Wolfgang Petersen created his colossal battle epic film, Troy. Though keeping esteem towards the original plot, Troy tells the story from a new perspective. As a modern film in this century, Petersen’s Troy tries to illustrate this piece of history from the...VIEW DOCUMENT

In great works of literature, authors often create complex and dynamic characters to add depth and meaning into the story. In the Iliad, Homer beautifully depicts the multifaceted character of Achilles as an epic hero. As readers look closely at Achilles, he reveals different sides of himself as the epic poem develops. Representing the struggle between his dominant, selfish, and Dionysian nature as an epic hero and his hidden empathetic Apollonian core, Achilles reveals the mythos of...VIEW DOCUMENT

Most people who are victims of this physically detrimental abuse are women: they make up 85% of domestic violence victims, and one in every four women will experience it (Domestic Violence Facts). In a society that fights so adamantly for equality and human rights, there is absolutely no reason for domestic violence to still be occurring. Some people may think that domestic violence is not as it seems, but these people are mistaken. Domestic violence is wrong because it is harmful, sometimes even lethal, to the spouse, damaging to the children, and is a form of female degradation.
The first reason that domestic violence is unethical is because it is, obviously,...VIEW DOCUMENT
