  • Fukuyama's Counter Argument In A Section
    1,009 words
    A penny for his thoughts Our Posthuman Future Francis Fukuyama Profile 17.99, pp 400 A little, for Francis Fukuyama, has gone a long way. In 1989 he made himself famous by opining that, with the breaching of the Berlin Wall, history had ended. His pronouncement hardly qualified as an idea; it was a slogan, crassly bolstering American triumphalism. At the time he was a middling policy wonk in the federal government, so he was merely doing his job by dressing up propaganda as philosophy. History s...

  • Modern Human With Neanderthal Traits
    1,587 words
    Were Neanderthals the same as modern humans, or were they an entirely different species? This is a major topic of debate among Anthropologists, and many people strongly argue each view, backing their opinion with evidence from physical remains and inferred ideas about behavior.

Also, most decisions involve choices between different outcomes and humans are likely to place different values on dif...
