  • Truth Of The One Individual
    1,030 words
    An elephant was brought to a group of blind men who had never encountered such an animal before. One felt a leg and reported that an elephant is a great living pillar. Another felt the trunk and reported that an elephant is a great snake. Another felt a tusk and reported that an elephant is like a sharp plough share. And so on. And then they all quarreled together, each claiming that his own account was the truth and therefore all the others false (traditional parable). None of the accounts that...
  • Novel The Scarlet Letter By Nathaniel Hawthorne
    442 words
    Part IV Task The quote, "Our problems are manmade: therefore, they may be solved by man No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings". by President John F. Kennedy, holds truth. In other words, we create our own problems and make our own choices on how to solve them, in turn, controlling our own destiny. This quote is proven in the play The Crucible, by Arthur Miller, and in the novel The Scarlet Letter, by Nathaniel Hawthorne. The Crucible by Arthur Miller uses irony and theme to support ...
  • Allegory Of The Cave Soul Resonance
    1,492 words
    The Allegory of the Cave: Turn Around Putting the Allegory of the Cave into my own words seems comparable to the Christian idea of using the lord's name in vain. First, I'd like to introduce a phenomenon I have observed throughout my life time. I call it soul resonance. Bear with me here. When two objects emit sympathetic vibrations, the sound or force multiplies. Example: Two tuning forks of the same frequency are struck upon each other and held a few feet apart. The vibration is much stronger....
  • Truth
    463 words
    Logic can very often restrain us from recognising the truth when it is presented to us. Allow me to begin by asking a question. What is man? Who are we indeed? We struggle, we grapple, we strain, grasping for truth that is always there, but we feel is out of our reach. We make ourselves prisoners by our own embankment of logic, an instrument that we work too hard. An ox that we send to the field, but provide no water for, driving it on, past exhaustion; a tool that we abuse without having even a...
  • Light Of True Reality
    780 words
    Plato's analysis of the truth through "The Parable of the Cave" is an effective, valid tool to help us analyze our own life and ultimately find the truth. He did this by first analyzing his own life and the bearers who used shadows to keep him from reaching the roadway to wisdom. It has proved to be an effective assessment not only when he was alive but even up until today. The parable symbolizes man's struggle to reach understanding and enlightenment and is a universal and everlasting concept. ...
  • Hawthorne's Protagonist Hester And Her Daughter Pearl
    2,786 words
    American Literature Grad. Standard Performance Package - "History of the Arts" Part 1 History, as it is lived, does not divide itself neatly into periods; yet, with the advantage of retrospect, we can often classify people, events, and works of art according to certain shared characteristics. Strong differences in the religious, philosophic, economic, and social beliefs experiences uniquely shaped the content and character of the Colonial and Romantic literary genres. The literature of the Colon...
