In the last class we studied the work of Friedrich Nietzsche

He mentions that the superior people in society must exhort their power over the inferior people by using their "will of power". In his eyes the will of power is a metaphor for the "will of life". Will of life being the will to grow, accumulate, and do what you please because you owe nothing to anyone. I believe that he is trying t...

Philosophy Mid-term Socrates Socrates said "the unexamined life is not worth living". He said this during his trial, for he did not want to live out the rest of his life without questioning and provoking questions. For him it was not worth living, and those immortal words have echoed on, but today, to apply that statement to my own life, it is as I believe he would have wanted it to be, a puzzlement. Though I know there is no right or wrong answer, either I agree or don't agree; I also know that...

The most evident and substantial theme that Steinbeck employs in The G
of Wrath is simply an outcry against the ill treatment of all migrant workers. The Joads function as a symbol the migrant working family, their horrific existence, and the effects that poverty has upon them. In penning The Grapes of Wrath, Steinbeck is generally calling for an end of man's inhumanity towards his fellow man, while he is specifically calling for a more humane treatment of the migrant worker. He reveals several methods of reaching this goal, the most apparent of which is his foremo...

We have been through many wars. When we fight we are standing up for our country. This act is right because of two main reasons. One being that we owe it to our country to pay it back for giving us what it has. Another reason is because if no one was willing to die we would not have what we have today. Over the years m...
