Rise Of Communism
Rise Of Communism There were many events that lead up to the Bolshevik Revolution. First off, in 1848, Karl Marx and Fredrich Engels published a thought-provoking book. The Communist Manifesto expressed their support of a world in which there was no difference in class. A world in which the workers and commoners ran the show and there was no high and supreme ruler. Many intellectual Russians began to become aware of this pamphlet as well as the advanced state of the world compared to Russia. Oth...

Affirmative Action
Affirmative Action Once upon a time, there were two people who went to an interview for only one job position at the same company. The first person attended a prestigious and highly academic university, had years of work experience in the field and, in the mind of the employer, had the potential to make a positive impact on the companys performance. The second person was just starting out in the field and seemed to lack the ambition that was visible in his opponent. "Who was chosen for the job?...

Foundations of Education

Gandhi Teachings
Gandhi Teachings From Gandhi, to Gandhiji, to Mahatma and Bapu, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi has traveled the distance from being the national hero to a legend. Gandhi, in life, was much more. Gandhi was a thinker, a philosopher, and also a statesman. He believed he could lead only if he was a worthy leader. To be a worthy leader he had to be morally strong. As he used to say, "A liar could not teach his pupils to speak the truth, a coward can not train young men to be brave." So to be morally...

The main argument for employees being given the title Human Resources Manager\' over Personnel Manager\' is to augment their ego. They feel the change of title e...

The Fall of the French Monarchy
The Fall of the French Monarchy The revolution resulted, among other things, in the overthrow of the Bourbon monarchy in France and in the establishment of the First Republic.

Why Was There Relative Stability in the Balkans, I
Why Was There Relative Stability in the Balkans, In the Period 1890-1908? Between the years of 1890 and 1908 there was a period of relative stability in the Balkan area. Whilst, in this essay, it is my primary objective to look at what factors caused this, it is first important to understand that the climate was only stable in comparison to the years before it when there was great tension, argument and conflict.

The Pleasure of Meaning
The Pleasure of Meaning Sam Vaknin\'s Psychology, Philosophy, Economics and Foreign Affairs Web Sites Abstract People often confuse satisfaction or pleasure with meaning. It is one thing to ask "How" (what Science does), another to seek an answer to "Why" (a teleological quest in most cases) and still different to contemplate the "What for". For instance: people often do something because it gives them pleasure or satisfaction however this does not endow the act with meaning. Meaningless thing...

Slavery / Freedom
Slavery / Freedom A slave is a tool, a total servant, a possession. Being a possession, a slave is required to total obedience to a master who has the power to do anything to a slave. Freedom means, to carry out one own choices, actions without coercion or constraint by necessity or circumstances. Fate often take a hand in the distillation of freedom. When this distillation occurs at weaker levels, benevolent slavery begins. A benevolent master usually receives gratitude from those slaves who ar...

Leadership is an art, the skillful application of leadership behaviors beyond techniques is much...

Two Nation: The War Continues... "So the question for white Americans is essentially moral: is it right to impose on members of an entire race a lesser start in life and then to expect from them a certain degree of resolution that has never been demanded from your own race?" With this question the author concludes his book. The book is called "Two Nations: Black and White, Separate, Hostile, Unequal."

Pateman defends her idea that the individual about which Locke writes is masculine, instead of the gender-encom...

I chose the archetype The prostitute with a heart
I chose the archetype "The prostitute with a heart of gold". An archetype is defined as a universal idea that can take many forms, appearing "spontaneously, at any time, at any place, and without any outside influence" (Pygmalions Word Play, Carl Jung, p. 82). When present in the unconscious, an archetype shapes thoughts, feelings, moods, speech, and actions. The prostitute with a heart of gold originated in early Greek mythology as the story of Pygmalion. Next, a more modern version called M...

The Contrast of Virginia Woolf and Alice Walker
The Contrast of Virginia Woolf and Alice Walker After reading the four essays assigned to this sequence, it becomes interesting to contrast two author\'s points of view on the same subject.

Also, the difference in writing styles could be drastic, or slight. Nevertheless, the writers display how versatile the English language can be. Alice W...
