  • Mesmer About Matters Of Money And Society

    In his book, "Mesmerism and the Enlightenment in France", Robert Dranton attempts to explain the mentality of the pre-Revolution Frenchman. He uses th theory and expansions of Franz Anton Mesmer.

He also shows how the radical branches of mesmerism carried on long after the revolution and affected the thinking of many ...
  • Hegemonic Theories And Political Economy Theories
    365 words
    In "The Virtual Community", Chapter Ten: Disinformocracy, Howard Rheingold states in the very first sentence of chapter ten that virtual communities could help citizens revitalize democracy, or they could be luring us into an attractively packaged substitute for democratic discourse. Focusing on journalism and the public sphere, I'm going to apply theories used in our text book, and compare them with Rheingold's ideas. These theories include the hegemonic and political economy theories, democrat...
  • Developing Political Theory Aristotle
    1,725 words
    Defining the Good Throughout history, many people have attempted to define what it is to be good. They have tried to explain what it is like to live a good life and what it means to be a good person. Many have tried to offer their own insights into what being good really is. Some philosophers have spent most of their lives pondering and arguing their idea of what being good really is. Some philosophers are thick headed about the subject and will refute anyone else's idea of what being good is. O...

  • Good Suggestion Of Montesquieu's Aims
    750 words
    'I ask a favour that I fear will not be granted; it is that one not judge by a moment's reading the work of twenty years, that one approve or condemn the book as a whole and not some few sentences. If one wants to seek the design of the author, one can find it only in the design of the work. ' (Montesquieu 1989: preface) The Spirit of the Laws took Montesquieu twenty years to write and was first published in Geneva in 1748. It was distributed freely, without the hindrance of censorship and deeme...
  • My Big Fat Greek Wedding
    1,754 words
    Throughout the semester, we have been introduced to many topics related to interpersonal communication. I have come to believe that these concepts have allowed me to better understand interactions that occur in our daily lives. My knowledge of these concepts was challenged when asked to relate these notions to a movie. During the time that I was watching the movie, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, I realized myself grasping onto what was going on and being able to relate certain scenes and situations t...
  • Rational Choice Theory Politics
    2,119 words
    What is Politics, Is it the Preserve of Government? Politics is a very emotive word and is used by different people to mean different things. There is no unifying theory of politics and hence no set boundaries of what can and cannot be said to be political. It is this ambiguity that makes it impossible to argue that politics is the preserve of government. This is so since preserve is such a precise word and there is always going to be a perspective that can illustrate an example of politics that...
  • Intention Of Machiavelli's Nature Of Politics
    1,622 words
    Niccolo Machiavelli (Born May 3rd, 1469 1527 Florence, Italy.) His writings have been the source of dispute amongst scholars due to the ambiguity of his analogy of the Nature of Politics and the implication of morality. The Prince, has been criticised due to it's seemingly amoral political suggestiveness, however after further scrutiny of other works such as The Discourses, one can argue that it was Machiavelli's intention to infact imply a positive political morality. Therefore the question nee...
  • Darby Shaw
    688 words
    Politics: The Pelican Bre if Masking his voice and dressed in a disguise, the assassin carried out his orders. He murdered two Supreme Court judges, and escaped without a trace. No one in Washington could figure out who would kill these two respected men. It took a graduate student from Tulane to change the question from whom to why for the case to be solved. The student named Darby Shaw realized both judges were complete opposites on the political spectrum, except in issues involving the enviro...
  • Traditional International Relations Theory
    924 words
    Feminists rely chiefly on the contention that the traditional analysis of world politics is fundamentally gendered. Gender-sensitive analysis begins with the premise that societal institutions are made by humans and are therefore changeable by humans. Feminists systematically deconstruct the notions traditionally held by realists and taken for granted as how the world works. Gender-sensitive analysis takes many factors into consideration that the realist does not. As history dictates, the world,...
  • 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...
  • Political Theory Versus Scientific Theory
    1,197 words
    Political Theory versus Scientific Theory Theory is ubiquitous. Everyone is a theorist. A theory is generally stated to be an idea or belief one has formulated that is to be tested by others.

Theories are functions of indirection, whereas facts are a matter of direc...
  • Developing Political Theory Aristotle
    1,621 words
    The primary concern of political theorists is to determine by what form of constitution the state will most likely succeed. According to Aristotle the definition of political success means the general happiness of the citizenry. Both Aristotle and James Q. Wilson share the belief that molding excellent character within the citizenry is the first and most important step towards solidifying the happiness of the state as a whole. The basic structure of Aristotle's philosophies are derived by gather...

    "I think, therefore I am,' a quote by Descartes, an enlightenment mathematician and developer of analytic geometry.
