  • Monism Vs Dualism Mental Events
    1,020 words
    For centuries philosophers have debated on monism and dualism, two different philosophical views of the human person. Philosophers have been trying to decipher whether the person is made up of the mind, the body, or both. Monists hold the belief that existence is purely based upon one ultimate "category of being" this means that either the person is made up of only the body or only the mind (Morris p 155). Dualists hold the belief that existence is based upon the body as well as the mind and its...

Edmund is known as an excellent writer but even for him this job is tough. If he just talks about boring, old Reagan as a pres...

    Eternal city Trieste and the Meaning of Nowhere Jan Morris 180 pp, Faber Trieste was the nexus city of Jan Morris's most original book, Fifty Years of Europe: An Album, which sneaked out, under-noticed, in 1997; perhaps the title, which sounds like a Brussels-funded pamphlet, dissuaded critics. I loved it.

    Due To Due to a lack of attention or understanding of English grammar, many Americans have, for several generations, used the adjective due as part of a prepositional phrase to introduce adverbial elements- to the disapproval of some strict grammarians. Although I prefer their prescription, for reasons of style, I must oppose their claim to correctness, on the pragmatic grounds of logic and sensibility. The most shakily grounded argument against the adverbial use is one of etiquette or style. Wi...
