    819 words
    Conflicting Lifestyles When comparing the contemplative lifestyle to the moral virtuous lifestyle, one finds the differences to rest on the three types of good: goods of the body, external goods, and goods of the soul. One conflict comes between leading a courageous, brave life and desiring happiness. To explain the aforementioned I feel it necessary to define true courage.

A trend that would almost explain the urbanization and mixture of American culture into one entity as it seems today.

This is a result of increased demand for mining commodities, and a drop in wo...
