Candide by voltaire
Candide by voltaire Voltaire's Candide is a novel which contains conceptual ideas and at the same time is also exaggerated. Voltaire offers sad themes disguised by jokes and witticism, and the story itself presents a distinctive outlook on life. The crucial contrast in the story deals with irrational ideas as taught to Candide about being optimistic, versus reality as viewed by the rest of the world. The main theme which is presented throughout the novel is optimism. Out of every unfortunate sit
Plato vs. aristotle
Plato vs. aristotle
Plato vs. aristotle Plato and Aristotle, two philosophers in the 4th century, hold polar views on politics and philosophy in general. This fact is very cleverly illustrated by Raphael's School of Athens (1510-11; Stanza della Segnatura, Vatican), where Plato is portrayed looking up to the higher forms; and Aristotle is pointing down because he supports the natural sciences. In a discussion of politics, the stand point of each philosopher becomes an essential factor. It is not coincidental that

Ancient Art of Japan: Kokeishi Dolls By: N. Daniel Kokeishi are a simplistic form of wooden dolls found only in the Tohoku area of Japan. The “ko” of Kokeishi means “child”and “keishi” means erasing. These special dolls are surrounded by an air of mystery, as their point of origin is somewhat unknown. There are several theories about how the Kokeishi dolls came to be. The first is the most controversial. About 100 years or so ago it was not uncommon for peasant families to have to abort childre

The old west has been portrayed truly and falsely through art, music, and literature from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s up till this day when illustrated through movies. Artistic expression and communication presented the realities and illusions of the old west, some of which attracted various people there, while keeping others at home. Beginning with art, one of the main painters of these years (1860-1900) was Frederick Remmington. He painted over 2,700 pictures of the frontier. One example

Considered to be the earliest known treatises on the subject, Sun Tzu discussed military organization, defensive and offensive strategies as well as tactical maneuvering.

Firstly, Soviet and Western thinking were governed by different aims. While the Soviet aim was messianic, the West was content to defend “national interests.” Secondly, Russian military thinking is more holistic than Western military thinking. T

The Basilica plan church is the simpler of the two. It is based on the Basilicas of the Greek and Roman cultures.

Sight and Blindness: a Metaphor for Humanity's Place in the Universe In Oedipus the King, sight and blindness were used as a metaphor for humanity's place in the universe. The gods and unchangeable fate remained hidden from humans; therefore, they were blind to the truth of existence. It is ironic that the only insight Oedipus had into the gods' will was through a blind man. Teiresias was a blind prophet who could see the truth about Oedipus' situation. The prophet was physically blind, and O
