A specific indication of this would be explaining or understanding the nature or knowledge of the world.

Sociological Imagination Outline the main characteristics of the ‘sociological imagination’ and discuss how sociologists might apply these to the study of everyday life. The sociological imagination is “a kind of interpretive imagination which does not treat its subject matter like objects in the natural world.

Speaking of Hughes Langston Hughes was a great poet as well as a great philosopher. He fought to find meaning in oppression and spoke of his own personal struggles with it. Many critics have analyzed his poems and see him as a leading African American poet who is a non-racist as well as a highly intelligent person. He put his soul into the poems he wrote and is idolized for speaking the truth about the society he lived in. “The Negro Speaks of Rivers”, by Langston Hughes, is a perfect example o

Atomism: Democritus and Epicurus Philosophy 116 October 17, 1996 In the Atomists, we see pluralism taken as far as it could possibly go. We see Democritus and Epicurus divide all the world, as well as the universe, into two categories; atoms and empty space. Everything else is merely thought to exist. The atoms are eternal, infinite in size and number and they are moving through the empty space. There is no motion without empty space. Both Democritus and Epicurus agreed that motion was impossibl

Dialectic And Spectacle In The Harrowing Of Hell Roland Barthes's essay on The World of Wrestling draws analogically on the ancient theatre to contextualize wrestling as a cultural myth where the grandiloquence of the ancient is preserved and the spectacle of excess is displayed. Barthes's critique -- which is above all a rewriting of what was to understand what is -- is useful here insofar as it may be applied back to theatre as another open-air spectacle. But in this case, not the theatre of t
