  • Use Of Reason Lead To Uncertain Assumptions
    1,234 words
    Descartes vs. Pascal For centuries, human beings have been debating over the validity of the use of reason. This is a very, very difficult subject to discuss, as one is forced to study something which is at that moment being used in their study. Two classic thinkers who contrasted on their view of reason were Descartes and Pascal. Though both saw reason as the primary source of knowledge, they disagreed over the competence of human reason. Descartes, the skeptic, said that we could use reason to...

  • Use Of Knowledge
    364 words
    Throughout the ages, man has always used his idea of correct knowledge as a way of pushing himself higher, a way of reaching a new plateau of superiority. Whether or not this knowledge proves to be true is superficial. The only matter of any importance is that he believes he is correct. A well respected and possibly pompous mathematician may be proven incorrect by a student, yet were it a colleague that had shown him the error in his ways, he would have accepted the remark with quiet disdain, ne...

  • Very Different Subjective Knowledge
    1,300 words
    A discussion of the Duality of Knowledge and the Way in which Human Interpretation Skews its Perception Since the dawn of human civilization, knowledge had always been a controlling force of humanity. The greatest of men and the bloodiest of all tyrants have both used knowledge as a tool to secure control over thousands and to ensure their place in history. Similarly religion, a force that has been around since prehistoric man, continues to manipulate the minds of millions in an effort to contro...
  • Our Civilization As The Roman's Problems
    1,078 words
    Knowledge is one of the most important factors in maintaining a peaceful and free society. Knowledge allows a society to plan for the future, while learning from past mistakes. Many great nations have fallen into war and chaos because they did not utilize the wisdom gained from the past. Many societies' problems were preventable, if people had used the lessons at their disposal and placed emphasis on solving their problems through the use of their intellects, rather than their weapons. A great e...

    Knowledge management software has played a very significant role in the development of global organizations. I'll identify the specific benefit, in my opinion, that knowledge management software has added to global organizations and identify a few key global organizations to further develop the benefit. I believe the major benefit that knowledge management software has given to global organizations is that is has allowed the geographically dispersed businesses to tap into their employees knowled...

  • Right New Knowledge Humanity
    755 words
    Every person has thought, at least once in their life, that it would be nice if there were no disease, no crime, no poverty, and / or for some other improvement in the Human condition. Since everyone has dreamed of a better world, it is fair to say that Humanity has a common dream. While no two humans are exactly the same, we are all of one race, the human race, and we all share the experience of life in an essentially identical carbon-based life-form structure. We all work for continuing surviv...

  • Hx Machine Boilers Descaling The Boiler
    4,247 words
    The most important feature of learning is making the basic effort to discover key facts on your own. The cutting and pasting that is becoming increasingly popular since the web has made it possible to find a wide range of material has little to do with learning. Monkeys could accomplish the same thing if banana oil were spread on the keys of a computer keyboard. Even worse, much of the cutting and pasting done by students today involves theft of material from other people. It is dishonest or eve...

  • Selected Poem By Ralph Waldo Emerson
    646 words
    Critical analysis on American literature I analyzed a selected poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson titled "Bacchus" written in 1847. In this poem I believe that he accurately depicted a metaphorical piece about everyone buying into things that weren't worth buying into, and jading their chance to boost themselves further in life. It sounds much like today, but was more realistic in the 1800's because it was spread by people and writings, real experiences, not television etc. Emerson starts out the poem ...
  • Knowledge Into Good Use
    747 words
    As reading Francis Bacon's essay, "Of Studies", one realizes of its enduring quality. Bacon's precise ideas were as valid in his days, as they are in the present times. His assertions have that universal quality that not only makes them cross physical frontiers, but also temporal ones. Throughout the essay there are many points in which I agree; but one of my favorite statements is the one that follows: "To spend to much time in studies is sloth; to use them too much for ornament is affectation;...
  • Personality Attribution Of One Spouse
    2,025 words
    Schreber's lives in his a world within his own mind. When he writes that he does not know if the streets of Leipzig are real or "miracles", or that he receives light rays directly and has entered into contact with them he is practicing reification and reductionism. Miracles are something that have no justification or rationality, rarely are they said to happen. They have no cause or concrete evidence of them even being real. So when Schreber writes that he does not know in the streets of Leipzig...
  • Too Sing America
    746 words
    I, Too by Langston Hughes, it creates a feeling of an individual vs. a large group enhancing the loneliness felt. The poem recognizes a certain inequality African Americans felt during a time period of racial discrimination. Hughes recognizes that although different in color, all people living in America were Americans and deserved to be treated equally. Hughes is not known for using lots of symbolism. His poetry is generally straight forward and to the point. There is not much hidden meaning in...
