  • Underground Man's Self Consciousness
    1,510 words
    In both Notes From the Underground, by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, and the play No Exit, by Jean-Paul Sartre, we see that the characters have lost that state of comfort with or acceptance of one's self that is apparent only before interaction with other people. The self-doubt that comes from interactions with others has diminished their dignity, and they see themselves as, or are mainly concerned with, what view they want or think others to have of them. They are ultimately uncomfortable with their live...
  • Servant Self Conscious Acts
    526 words
    Relation of Master and Servant According to Hegel, "the self conscious is itself and for itself" meaning that it has to come outside of itself, so that it can do two things. One is to cancel out the other otherness. The second is to try to become recognized. This recognition process is called Master and Servant self-conscious. The conflict between master and servant is one in which the historical themes such as dependence and independence are introduced. It sets up the realization of the self co...
  • Mental Content Of One's Thoughts And Sensations
    10,732 words
    EMOTIONS AND THE SELF Much of the perplexity that motivates modern discussion of the nature of mind derives indirectly from the striking success of physical explanation. Not only has physics itself advanced at a remarkable pace in the last four centuries; every hope has been held out that, in principle, all science can be understood and ultimately studied in terms of mechanisms proper to physics. Seeing all natural phenomena as explicable in terms appropriate to physics, however, makes the menta...
  • Impulses Of The Consciousness
    650 words
    The works of Conrad Aiken are informed by his life-long dedication to the exploration of human consciousness and its evolution. As Aikens earliest writings demonstrate, these - and the two corollary issues of identity and poetry as the means of evolving consciousness - pre- occupied him from the very outset of his career. In a book entitled "Impulse", Aiken through his hero Micheal Lowes tries to determine what is right and wrong. The hero, like mediocre poets, is opposed to superior ones, "do n...
  • Analysis And Intuition Henri Bergson
    799 words
    Analysis and Intuition Henri Bergson was a modern philosopher who merged empiricism with a bit of rationalism to become part of a new empiricism that held room for intuition and movement with a flux through time. He essentially refused sciences claim to explain the universe in mechanical conditions; instead he considered life an unending creation, a matter of change and time unlike something static. In Henri Bergsons (originally) dualistic realm there existed the distinctive modes of consciousne...
  • Let My Form
    445 words
    Selflessness Buddhism denies that there is anything corresponding to the common idea of a soul or self. Instead, the Buddha taught that the soul is a false notion imputed to a collection of constantly changing parts. These are referred to as the five "aggregates" (skandha): form, feelings, discriminations, consciousness, and compositional factors. Form refers to one's physical form, and feelings are our emotional responses to the things we experience. Discriminations are classifications of these...
  • Self Consciousness On Women Of Our Society
    1,709 words
    It is 21 century now, and we have always said the self-consciousness of women that our society offers to females is more and more awake. However, if we look at the advertisements, which reflect the general thoughts of our society, we will start to wonder does the society actually offer fair self-consciousness to women? As time goes by, the advertisement of each age just proves that women are denied the opportunity to having fair self-consciousness. A good example is that after 1910, most Chinese...
