Philosophy
Philosophy When I was born, I did not know the difference between right and wrong. Now, I do. The word philosophy means the love of knowledge. One type of knowledge is propter quid, which ask the question why or how. In this paper, I will demonstrate how Socrates, Hume and Aristotle, three well known philosophers, would explain how I acquired this knowledge in relation to the principles of right and wrong. Socrates is the first philosopher, I will discuss. Since Socrates did not write anything

The Life of Rene' Descartes
The Life of Rene' Descartes Rene' Descartes was a French mathematician, philosopher and anatomist. He contributed a great deal to modern ideas , particularly those concerned with geometry. He was known in his time as a mechanist, because he believed that nature could be explained through rational means, and inherent patterns could be found. During his life, Descartes remade geometry and made modern geometry possible. Rene' Descartes was born on March, 31 1596 in La Haye, Touraine, which was a fo

The United States and National Security, and Dominant Party in Balance of Power The emergence of the United States as a dominant party in balance of power equations is a relatively new phenomenon in world history. New military technology coupled with increased global integration has allowed the United States to reinvent the fundamental assumptions of international diplomacy while propelling itself to the top of the hegemonic stepladder. This positioning was achieved piecemeal during the course o
Why Is There Gravity
Why Is There Gravity
Why Is There Gravity? When you pick up a stone and release it falls to the ground. This seemingly simple concept has been known throughout history as gravitation. Isaac Newton managed to explain gravity in terms of its effects, but few have come up with a working explanation for the driving force behind it. The mysterious nature of some of the more peculiar effects of gravity, as well as the simple ones, indicate that explaining why there is gravity will be a long, difficult, yet intriguing tas

The Effects of HIV Mutations on the Immune System Science C.J. Stimson INTRODUCTION The topic of this paper is the human immunodeficiency virus, HIV, and whether or not mutations undergone by the virus allow it to survive in the immune system. The cost of treating all persons with AIDS in 1993 in the United States was $7.8 billion, and it is estimated that 20,000 new cases of AIDS are reported every 3 months to the CDC. This question dealing with how HIV survives in the immune system is of criti

Rene Descartes Rene Descartes was born March 31, 1596 in La Haye, Touraine. Descartes was the son of a minor nobleman and belonged to a family that had produced a number of learned men. At the age of eight, he was enrolled in the Jesuit school of La Fleche in Anjou, where he remained for eight years. Besides the usual classical studies, he received instruction in math and in Scholastic philosophy. Roman Catholicism exerted a strong influence on Descartes throughout his life. Upon graduation fro

Werner Karl Heisenberg was born in Wuerzburg, Germany, on December 5, 1901, and grew up in academic surroundings, in a household devoted to the humanities. His father was a professor at the University of Munich and undoubtedly greatly influenced young Werner, who was a student at the Maximilian Gymnasium. Heisenberg had the opportunity t

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 omnipotent being.

Word Count: 1284 If theories of their existence are true, black holes are the most powerful force in the known physical universe. Many people are familiar with the term black hole, but few people actually know anything about them. A black hole forms as a result of a massive star running out of fuel to burn (Chaisson, 193). Once the star is no longer exerting outward force by burning off gases, it begins to collapse under it’s own intense, inward gravity (Chaisson, 193). It is like slowly lettin

Mathematics Throughout the years, the history of mathematics has taken its fair share of changes. It has stretched across the world from the Far East, migrating into the Western Hemisphere. One of the most fundamental and key principles of mathematics has been the quadratic formula. Having been used in several different cultures, the formula has been part of the base of mathematics theory. The general equation has been derived from many different sources, most commonly: ax2 + bx + c = 0, with x

To better understand biological processes in organisms we can take a look at a biological circuit, a term borrowed from electrical engineering that illustrates the interconnections among proteins or genes (1). Circuits can describe connections needed to regulate a single gene or an entire genome. Through a circuit we can visualize important components and reactions

Resistivity Aim: To investigate the physical and electrical properties of a wire in order to find the resistance using Ohm’s law and from this to find the Resistivity of the wire at room temperature. Hypothesis: Electricity is the flow of charged particles around a complete circuit; a circuit consists of three main factors, voltage, current and resistance. Ohm’s Law states that at a constant room temperature these factors can be related by the equation, V = IR Where, V = Voltage (V) I = Current

These particles, usually molecules or atoms, typically occupy a volume about 1000 times larger than occupied by the same number of particles in the liquid or solid state. Thus molecules of gases are much further apart than those of liquids or solids. Most of the volume occupied by a gas is empty space. This accounts for the

The history of Superstrings and the conditions that brought it forth are viewed as wells as the impending implications of this discovery.

Pythagoras was known as “the father of math and music” by his disciples, the Pythagoreans. They were inspired by his teachings, and they considered him a demigod. The P

Combining the branches, we are able to achieve a higher goal; finding the solution to a differential equation. First, the basis of differentia

Over the past few years many people have argued over the amount of violence on television, and whether it promotes violence in American society. Since TV is such a big part of today’s society it is easy to point a finger at it as a promoter of violence. So does violence on television promote violence in American Society? It is true that the amount of violence on TV shows today is growing. But does this really desensitize the publics view of violence? The Japanese crime rate is a good example th

Complex Number, in mathematics, the sum of a real number and an imaginary number. An imaginary number is a multiple of i, where i is the square root of -1. Complex numbers can be expressed in the form a + bi, where a and b are real numbers. They have the algebraic structure of a field in mathematics. In engineering and physics, complex numbers are used extensively to describe electric circuits and electromagnetic waves (see Electromagnetic Radiation). The number i appears explicitly in the Schr

Type of air pollution, formed when oxides of sulfur and nitrogen combine with atmospheric moisture to yield sulfuric and nitric acids, which may then be carried long distances from a source before they are deposited by rain, is called acid rain This pollution may also take the form of snow, fog, or a dry form of precipitation. Acid rain is currently a subject of great controversy because of widespread environmental damage for which it has been blamed, including eroding structures, injuring crop
