Cherubic Demons
Cherubic Demons Virginia Woolf was a professional writer who made many important contributions to the progress of women and women?s rights. She was born in 1882 during a time -- the middle of the Victorian era -- in which the feminine ideal that she struggled against so much was very prevalent; the ideal women was thought to be passive, pretty, and proper. ?The Angel in the House? was Woolf?s term for the internalized ideal against which she strove to overcome. Her father was a writer too; he wa

Creationism Vs. Evolution
Creationism vs. Evolution In my short life on this planet I have come to question things that many take upon blind faith. We all know that we must some day die; yet we continuously deny the forces at work inside ourselves, which want to search out the answers of what may or may not come after. It is far easier for humanity to accept that they will go to a safe haven and be rewarded for their lives with pleasures and fantasies of an unfathomable scale than to question the existence of a supposed

Rave Culture: The Number One Example of Social Deviance Introduction What is a rave? This is a fundamental question that, in a way, I will attempt to answer in this paper, but I will never do it. Raving is a highly subjective experience. One person's best rave is another person's worst. Any attempt to analyze rave culture must recognize the highly personal factor of the experience. It is because of this fact that I start off my attempt to analyze rave culture with a series of quotes on the exper

For Whom The Bell Tolls
For Whom The Bell Tolls
For Whom the Bell Tolls When reading an Ernest Hemingway novel, one must try very hard to focus on the joy and encouragement found in the work. For Whom the Bell Tolls is full of love and beauty, but is so greatly overshadowed by this lingering feeling of doom--a feeling that does not let you enjoy reading, for you are always waiting for the let down, a chance for human nature to go horribly awry. This feeling is broken up into three specific areas. In Ernest Hemingway's novel, For Whom the Bell

Platonic Paradox
Platonic Paradox To research Plato's paradox in the Meno, we can first consult the definition of what platonism is. Websters defines platonism as actual things are copies of transcendent ideas and that these ideas are the objects of true knowledge apprehended by reminiscence. For this essay, we will assume that trancendency is- that which is beyond comprehension, and reminiscence as past experience. The Meno is a dialogue between Socrates, a scholar and Meno, who eventually became an explo
