  • Negative Liberty Positive Freedom Coercion
    562 words
    In his essay 'Two Concepts of Liberty,' Isaiah Berlin distinguishes between two conceptions of freedom, namely negative and positive conception of freedom. Basically he defines negative liberty as the absence of coercion. He states: 'To coerce a man is to deprive him of freedom' (121). According to him, coercion is the intention to interfere in the freedom of an individual. Thus, absence of coercion is absence of deliberate, intentional coercion.

  • On Aids And Moral Duty Discrimination Goes On
    532 words
    The two essays I read were On Aids and Moral Duty by Willard Gaylin and Discrimination Goes On by Robert H. Cohen. On Aids and Moral Duty says that HIV positive individuals have a moral responsibility to let others know they are HIV positive to protect innocent people from unknowingly contracting the virus. Discrimination Goes On states that the discrimination of people infected with HIV is very real and it would be ignorant to force them to let everyone know of their condition. It could even b...
  • Jane Eyre Events Or Moods
    544 words
    In Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, good weather is Bronte's tool to foreshadow positive events or moods and poor weather is the tool to set the tone for negative events or moods. This technique is exercised throughout the entire novel, alerting the readers of any up coming atmosphere. In the novel, Jane's mood was, to a degree, determined by the weather mentioned. For example, after Jane was publicly, falsely accused of being a liar by Mr. Brocklehurst, an upcoming positive event was predicted w...

  • Rousseau Negative Change
    273 words
    Rousseau believed that an impartial "legislator" would be needed to come into a society in order to implement positive change, while blaming the original negative change on "divine intervention." In this essay I will prove that divine intervention is not the only explanation for this original negative change as well as how a "legislator", is not the only option or even the best option to implement positive societal change. Rousseau's unwillingness to offer any other explanation s for these pheno...

  • Acts Of Non Conformity Admonished Or Admired
    459 words
    Acts of non-conformity should either be admonished or admired, I feel, depending on circumstance and the effect that act has on people. Each and every act is unique and different and may either have a negative or positive effect on people. It is the result of the act of non-conformity where we can truly decide whether it should be admired or admonished. Acts of non-conformity which have a positive effect on people, or show that a person is comfortable being an individual, should be admired as th...
  • Positive Behavioral Support Problem Behavior
    423 words
    Schools are in great need of systems, processes, and personnel who are able to support the needs of students with problem behavior. Research indicates, however, that (while I am a big, fat cheater) information has not been made available to teachers and other professionals in a format that allows these strategies to become common practice. Many teachers choose isolated behavioral strategies that are not applied immediately after the problem behavior has occurred. As teachers, we are often expend...

    Is Change a Positive Force in our Lives? with detailed reference to Melina Marchetta's 'Looking for Alibrandi' The idea of change being a positive force in our lives can only be considered true when measured by the individual's response to change.

For example, in...

  • Writing In The Curriculum
    399 words
    Reminecing back to when I was in high school I was terrified of writing. I probably could say that I continue to feel that way at times. Teachers usually think of themselves first as teachers and not at all as coaches, at least not when I was in school. As I read the topic of "Teacher as Coach" I thought that if my school teachers had that mentality I probably would look at writing in a more positive manner. Most often than usual, we would turn in our writing assignments and when they were retur...
