• Fetal Cell Transplants Fetuses Are Aborted
    449 words
    Transplanting fetal cells is an issue that is considered by some as a like saver, and at the same time considered murder by others. It is a very controversial subject, which can be looked at in different ways. Once researched, people make their own personal opinion on the subject. Many who develop their own "views" have no background knowledge of it, which should not be done. After reading, "Difficult Decisions: Fetal Cell Transplants," I have developed my own opinion. In certain situations, it...
  • Mill On Liberty People Opinion Truth
    1,933 words
    In Chapter 2, Mill turns to the issue of whether people, either through their government or on their own, should be allowed to coerce or limit anyone else's expression of opinion. Mill emphatically says that such actions are illegitimate. Even if only one person held a particular opinion, mankind would not be justified in silencing him. Silencing these opinions, Mill says, is wrong because it robs 'the human race, posterity as well as the existing generation.' In particular, it robs those who di...

  • The Effect Of Public Opinion
    542 words
    Public opinion is one of the major concerns of each politician. The polls, which are taken on the sample from population, are reliable sources of people's opinions. Our private point of view may be shared by many others and then if this is noticed by politicians they should be aware of that. They can use it for their own purposes like building a political platform with the help from the polls information, or ignore it with the danger that it may someday turn against them. The people's reaction o...

    1,780 words
    Plato's View in Human Knowledge Plato presents three different views about knowledge in Meno, Republic, and Theaetetus.

Strangely enough, Plato's views in Meno, Republic, and Theaetetus are similar, regardi...

  • Opinion And Belief Operating System
    304 words
    Opinions and beliefs are very similar. Because of this, some people don't understand the difference between an opinion and a belief. When you have an opinion about something, you feel a certain way about something. When you believe something, you think that something exists or a state exists. Knowing the difference is important because when people treat beliefs like opinions people tend to do two things. The first is that they discard the consequences of the possibility that the belief is right....
  • The Crito Reasonable People
    1,398 words
    The purpose of 'Crito's seems intended to exhibit the character of Socrates in one light only, not as the philosopher, fulfilling a divine mission and trusting in the will of Heaven, but simply as the good citizen, who, having been unjustly condemned is willing to give up his life in obedience to the laws of the State. The main argument that seems to entail the discussion between Crito and Socrates is the opinion of the majority on Socrates' fate. In the 'Crito's socrates states, 'Why should we ...

Which will quickly escalate to war, so in essence these leaders are giving their opinion on how to find peace, resulting in a difference of opinion. St. Augustine in the mist of all this violence writes a book not...

    Public opinion can be defined as an aggregate of individual views, attitudes, and beliefs about a particular topic expressed by a significant proportion of a community. This is very important to political parties. They base their ideas, and campaigns on what most people think and try to respond to the majority. For example, most people think that shoplifting is wrong so laws have been passed to punish those who do. Public opinion is never static. It is an evolutionary process that we, as citizen...

    Thank you very much for rereading my review. I really appreciate it. : ) I do however, respectfully disagree with your opinion of my review and I've listed the reasons below. The following line is my opinion of Maupassant's story: This is a story that has stood the test of time and is as relevant today as when Maupassant wrote it in the late nineteenth century. When I state that Mathilde is unhappy with her lot in life, that is my opinion. No where in the story does it say that she is unhappy. ...

  • Abortion General Opinion

    For a policy Abortion Abortion For a policy to be deemed responsive, it must correspond with public opinion. For many policy arenas, this is not the case.

Over time, there has been consistency between policies and laws enacted and the general aggregate opinion of the nation as a whole, more so than most policy arenas. Until 1973, abo...
