  • Theory Of The Noble Lie To Glaucon
    1,425 words
    In Bloom's second edition of "The Republic of Plato", there are many troubling issues. The one that strikes me the most, however, is the idea of the "noble lie".

In the discussion between Socrates and Glaucon that involved how to create an ideal city, they divided the people into three classe...

  • Pilgrimage To The Holy City Of Mecca

    Muhammad is by far one of the most influential men in the history of the religious world. Even today his teachings are still worldly known and his views on dying for a place in heaven result in our terrorist bombings, suicide, and even the world trade center disaster. To understand the fundamentals and the reasons why Islam is a violent religion you have to divert back to the teachings of Muhammad and his life. Muhammad was born around 572 B. C to his father Abdallah and his mother Amina. Both o...
  • Cities Would The Human Race
    646 words

In one corner people say that cities ruined man's already perfect way of life. They believe cities led to many flaws we have in society today and that humans would be better off without them. On the other hand, some people believe that cities are the best thing that could have happened to our planet. They say that...
