  • Characteristic Of His Trust In Nature
    2,634 words
    Every culture of the world has its stories. Whether large or small, technologically developed or ancient, nomadic or settled, every population on Earth has a unique mythological tradition and special history. Despite the great variety that can be found among these tales, there are certain characteristics that repeat from story to story. Psychologist Carl Jung called these characteristics archetypes. Archetypes, he said, are universal, and that there are as many archetypes as there are typical si...
  • One Idea Of Perfection
    537 words
    HUMAN NATURE: ARE PEOPLE GOOD OR BAD? From the time when humanity was able to believe in it, Utopia has existed as a mere word, thought or principle. It is a place that is hoped for, and is also a society that was and is apparently deemed to be possible, or is it? The Merriam-Webster's dictionary defines it as "an imaginary and indefinitely remote place of ideal perfection in laws, government and social conditions". It doesn't exist. It cannot exist because of our nature, our practices, and our ...

That is why the idea of justice varies g...
  • Personal Freedom And Choice

    Camus' 'The Stranger': Choice and Individual Freedom Are Integral Components of Human Nature Camus's The Stranger is a grim profession that choice and individual freedom are integral components of human nature, and the commitment and responsibility that accompany these elements are ultimately the deciding factors of the morality of one's existence. Meursault is placed in an indifferent world, a world that embraces absurdity and persecutes reason; such is the nature of existentialist belief, that...
  • Five Arguments For The Existence Of God
    375 words
    In the Bible, a book meant to be the word of God, condemns such things as murder, adultery and theft. I find it hard to believe that an all-powerful, all-knowing, infinitely-good being that "created" this world and everything in it would allow any of these things to occur. He would not only condemn them in an ancient book, but abolish them altogether along with any other things evil. If God is supposed to be the "heavenly father" wouldn't he want and impose onto his children his goodness and wee...

This searching is often human nature and leads different cultures around the world to describe the human problematic in many different ways. For the Nauha, a native Mexican tribe, the surface of the earth is slippery and narrow like a jagged path following mountain peeks. With a world view as such...

    The philosophy of Naturalism is a world-view that is built on an unverifiable assumption. The philosophy of naturalism is the fundamental underpinning to the entire atheistic evolutionary world-view (Howard 109). This literary movement in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries visualized a type of fiction that examined human life with "objectivity and scientific inquiry". Naturalist typical views were either "biological determinism by hereditary instincts" or as "socioeconomic determi...
  • Existence On The Number
    1,193 words
    Sam Vaknin's Psychology, Philosophy, Economics and Foreign Affairs Web Sites Knives and forks are objects external to us. They have an objective – or at least an intersubjective – existence. Presumably, they will be there even if no one watches or uses them ever again. We can safely call them "Objective Entities'. Our emotions and thoughts can be communicated – but they are NOT the communication itself or its contents. They are "Subjective Entities', internal, dependent upon th...
