But, in his novel, Crime and Punishment, Fyodor Dostoevsky serves up both on a platter to minor character Arkady Ivanovich Svidrigailov in order to communicate his theme that freedom is empty or of little value if not governed by a guiding principle. Svidrigailov has plenty of freedom, but no such guiding principle. For most of the novel, Svidrigailov lives outside of all moral and societal boundaries. He commits terrible cr
The Cambridge illustrated history of China displays and describes the foundations of Chinese philosophy, which were constructed during the Eastern Zhou dynasty (770-256 B.C.). Following the ancient history of China I will discuss the aspects of the culture that help create and establish certain philosophers into existence.

Throughout this essay I will examine their methodology on social reality, how we can gain knowledge from their ontological position and their theory of knowledge, by focusing on their writings about religion. Both Emile D
