  • Paper On Gendered Reason Philosophical Thought
    1,848 words
    email: title: A Paper on Gendered Reason Philosophical thought has traditionally been the realm of the masculine; one in which men thought women were unable to comprehend. Canonical philosophers have perpetuated a theory that women are less than capable of pondering subjects of importance, those dealing with rationale and reasoning. These theories came from the great philosophical thinkers, Plato and Aristotle, Descartes and Rousseau, Kant and Hume, Locke and Hegel. Each of them had their own re...
  • Major Existential Philosophers
    781 words
    Existentialism Like 'rationalism' and 'empiricism,' 'existentialism' is a term that belongs to intellectual history. Its definition is thus to some extent one of historical convenience. The term was explicitly adopted as a self-description by Jean-Paul Sartre, and through the wide dissemination of the postwar literary and philosophical output of Sartre and his associates - notably Simone de Beauvoir, Maurice Merle au-Ponty, and Albert Camus - existentialism became identified with a cultural move...
  • Darwin Mythos
    683 words
    There are many different philosophies towards life. All these philosophies are based on the opposition of mythos and logos. The factor that changes most philosophies is the correct definition of the two terms. Philosophers have been trying to explain the difference between mythos and logos for centuries. The only thing that is agreed upon by all philosophers is that logos can be explained and mythos cannot. This is the most generic difference between the two. An example of mythos is the bible. W...
  • Major Contribution Of Hegel To Philosophical Theory
    1,195 words
    Imagine studying the political and social developments of the 20th century without ever considering Communism or evaluating the idea of Fascism. Envision a Russia without the effects of Joseph Stain or a Germany untouched by the doctrine of Adolph Hitler. The above statements seem incredible because these systems created so much of the political and social turmoil throughout this century. Just as politics seems incomplete without the prevalence of these ideas, it is also incomplete without the p...
  • Social Philosophy
    1,410 words
    Beginning of Philosophy The word philosophy comes from the two Greek words philbin, which means "to love" and sophia, which means "knowledge" or "wisdom". Thales: One of the first known Greek philosophers, was doing speculative physics when he claimed that everything in the natural world was made of water. Leucippus and Democritus: Arrived at the conclusion that all matter was made from tiny particles (atoms) that were similar except for their size and shape; differences in larger bodies were ac...
  • Western Vs Non Western Vs Feminist Philosophy
    1,207 words
    Throughout my whole philosophical experience I have yet to read about a woman or minority philosopher. It was only in the last chapter of my philosophy book that I got a taste of different philosophy. For nine chapters I studied philosophy from a white male point of view. Granted among these men there are different philosophical ideas but all came from the same region of the world and very similar cultures. It turns out, as I had suspected, that Western vs. Non-Western vs. Feminist philosophy is...
  • Philosophers
    342 words
    Throughout history, many philosophers have wondered about the reason of earth's roundness, the moon's shape, the sun rising and the sunset or maybe just the reason of being here on earth. Most of them have made their own hypothesis and even created theories. Nowadays there are few people that philosophize; there is no need. We have everything solved, if we wonder about the sun's size we look up in the encyclopedia or check out our 4th grade geography book. To be astonished is to strike with surp...
