    Fate plays a large role in Shakespeare's Macbeth. Not only do the weird sisters use it to wreak havoc among the Scottish nobility, but many people throughout the play try to tempt fate.

To those who believe that fate is an all-encompassing aspect of God, fate is merely an excuse for one's deeds. But to Macbeth an...

    Freedom and Reason in Kant Alice Fur nari 24 /2/97 Morality, Kant says, cannot be regarded as a set of rules which prescribe the means necessary to the achievement of a given end; its rules must be obeyed without consideration of the consequences that will follow from doing so or not. A principle that presupposes a desired object as the determinant of the will cannot give rise to a moral law; that is, the morality of an act of will cannot be determined by the matter or content of the will for wh...

  • Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas
    1,224 words
    After both reading and watching Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson, I have come to realize that the story follows the mythic journey. The mythic journey is the basis for nearly every story ever told. The mythic or heroes journey usually begins in the heros ordinary world. Next comes the call to adventure. The third step is when the hero refuses the call to adventure. Before leaving to go on a journey the hero meets with a mentor. Now the hero must cross the first threshold, th...
  • Femininity Role Of Women
    584 words
    The New Femininity Femininity is not a word that we are encouraged to use these days. A lot of people would argue that femininity is the thing that keeps women obedient to men. However, there is a hidden assumption behind this term. The assumption is that masculinity is superior to femininity; that femininity is not a beautiful and powerful thing in its own right. I believe that women have something men do not have. Women have special qualities that belong to them as women, and they do not inten...

    The key issue in the Middle East, increasingly, has less to do with the Arab-Israeli conflict and more to do with fundamentalist Islam. What is fundamentalist Islam? On the one hand, it manifests itself as a new religious conviction, reaffirming faith in an awe-inspiring God. On the other hand, it appears as a militant ideology, demanding political action now. One day its spokesmen call for a jihad (sacred war) against the West, evoking the deepest historic resentments. Another day, its leaders...

  • Feminism In Christian Ethics

    In Feminism And Christian Ethics, Lisa Sole Cahill argues that feminist ethics has much to offer Catholicism. For one, the main issues that concern feminist ethics are basically the same ones that make up Catholic identity. That is, how women and men define themselves in society, what means are available to them for attaining their ends- in short inter personal and social relations. Second, the founding principles that guide feminist ethics are rooted in the tradition of natural law, a tradition...

    Stunning Comparison in Faulkner's A Rose for Emily and Barn Burning In the words of Oscar Wilde, 'The well-bred contradict other people. The wise contradict themselves.' Conflict between the 'well-bred' people and their 'wise' counterparts satiates William Faulkner's short stories 'A Rose for Emily' and 'Barn Burning.' The inability of Emily Grierson in 'A Rose for Emily' and Abner Snopes' father in 'Barn Burning' to accept and cope with their changing environments leads to an even greater quarr...
  • Fair Is Foul And Foul Is Fair

    In the tragedy, Macbeth by William Shakespeare, the paradoxical theme of "Fair is foul, and foul is fair" functions throughout the play. The line is a prophecy which one thing seems like another. It implies especially to the characters that they are not as they seem to be. The Three Witches are the ones who introduce the paradox that runs throughout the play. The theme affects these characters because although they speak of the future, they do not seem to affect the course of it. They are the a...

    Frederick Douglass was an emancipated slave who passed from one master to another until he finally found the satisfaction of being his own; he went through almost as many names as masters.

His father may or may not have been a white man named Anthony, but Douglass never firmly validated or rejected this possibility. During transit to New York (where he became...
