I believe it is open to interpretation whether does something have to have a meaning or if it does not, is it still considered as an art?Through the study of Theory of Knowledge, we are encouraged to see things in a bigger perspective and to examine every angle of a situation.In this matter, from one point of view, art has to have meaning in much the same way as words written on paper have meaning considering how an artist intends to convey a message and to communicate emotions without words.On the other hand, art also does not have to be about anything to be good.Sometimes, many tried hard to figure out the meaning of an art but it turns out that the artist’s intention does not want his art to have any meaning at all.

Yet does being all-good mean that he has to eliminate all evil in the universe.Because there is evil apparent in the universe every second this would mean that God too would have to suspend the universe every second, just to eliminate all the evil.Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy.(Job 37:23) Since god exists in another dimension and he has to eliminate evil, this would mean that he would have to suspend the universe because of the different dimensions.New York: Routledge Firm, 1998. .

Would we not consider our society more advanced or better than it was when it was legal to own slaves?Even though the Cultural Differences Argument contains a major logical fallacy, Cultural Relativism could still be true.Different cultures consider different acts to be moral and immoral and not all cultures will necessarily have the same opinions on all matters.No, it does not follow.The fact that the argument is invalid does not imply that the theory cannot be true; however, it does imply that the theory needs a new central argument.

It is possible that a person finds the truth of something yet believes it to be horrid, but this is simply because the person does not look beyond the horrid surface and into the core.But if one is able to see the beauty of truth one can see the essence of life, that brings us closer to the understanding of life which is primordially the our main focus in life.What does he mean when he says the ‘wonderful brown fog comes from the impressionalists”?In his poem, Yeats is capable of defining the atrocities of the revolution as a beauty because he understands beyond the surface of the deaths and violence of the revolution.An example of a person who is capable of seeing beauty in truth regardless of the surface of the truth is W.B Yeats in hi...

The first defense against STR that I will consider is what Hinchliff calls ‘The Point Model’.With the paradoxes explained, I can consider what they mean for both Presentism and Eternalism, and show how the minowski Universe appears to favour Eternalism.Penrose (1999) asks us to consider two people (Jack and Jill) walking past each other on the street.I will consider the example used by Lombard (2009) in his paper “Time for a Change: A polemic against the Presentism – Eternalism Debate”.I will consider the postulates that make up STR and consider the important paradoxes these lead to.

Mill says himself that each individual is primarily interested in their own happiness.However, the presence of egoists could contradict the claim that human nature is so consituted to desire nothing but happiness.Even if we were to consider Mill’s third stage without psychological egoism, it does not solve the problem of alternative ultimate ends.In my opinion, human nature is, to a certain extent, constituted to desire what is part of happiness and the means to happiness.There are a number of arguments that an egoist could use whilst remaining perfectly rational such as if he can consider self-interested behaviour which is harmful to others, then it is perfectly permittable for others to ‘pursue hostile courses’6 against him.

An even bigger factor to consider is health.There are many reasons surrounding peoples’ choices on the issue of abortion, it is hard to consider which is the underlying concern.A common misconception is that these Pro-Choicer’s think of abortion as an alternative to contraception, but they really consider it a last resort to prevent either bringing a child into an unfortunate life or putting unreasonable burdens on the parents.“Pro-choice Abortion – It Wasn’t a Choice”.At the other end of the spectrum there are people who consider themselves Pro-Choice.

However, this does not mean another person can’t help carry out the abortion.Finally, my rebuttal to this is that abortion cannot be murder if the fetus is not an actual human being, but just a clump of cells.My central argument revolves around Thomson’s notion that the motion has prior claim over her body, which allows her to decide what she wants to do with it and I declare that Marquis’s defense of the wrongness of taking away a fetus’s potential for a valuable future is nevertheless still up to the mother because she created the fetus.Yet, this does not mean that the fetus has a right to continue to use the mother’s body in order to live.I rejected Marquis’s idea that this potential encompasses all that life has to offer and deprivin...

The practical implementation of this could mean that one would be permitted to smoke cannabis consume ecstasy at particular venues.If the fact that drugs are illegal results in a likelihood of harm to other people then it follows that we should at least consider the legalization of some drugs on these grounds.This could mean that a drug which, when consumed, could result in harmful environmental impact or damage to others who are not consuming the drug, should be banned.We could consider, for example, the extortionate cost of drug treatment which it could fall on the state to provide.The fact that drugs are illegal makes them extremely expensive which mean that many drugs users must turn to theft to satisfy their habit, which may ‘requir...

The man is the stronger sex and he should have the power to act according his own outlook.In fact in Macbeth all men except Macbeth are real men because they do not weaken and they save their ability to control their lives only by their volitions .A manly deed can be considered again the act of Macduff who sacrifices his family in order to maintain the welfare of the whole nation.The progressing action in the play makes the characters face different difficulties and their different reactions bring the contrast between what is manly and what is not.The “manly” qualities which are presented in Macbeth enrich the reader’s view of life and how it has changed during the centuries.

Now suppose Searle were replaced with a computer.As an analogy, consider how being unmarried is a necessary condition for being a bachelor.So if passing the TT is a sufficient condition for mentality, passing the test is enough for mentality, but this does not mean that passing the test is a requirement for mentality.The computer takes the symbols it receives as inputs, and, consulting a rule book (its programming code), it gives an appropriate output.But since Searle does not understand Chinese, we have no reason to think the computer does either.

For now it can be agreed upon that it is over the course of time and nature that a person is virtuous, they must perfect it through habit, and doing what is virtuous.In order to build character, one must stay away from vices, and stick to preservation of the mean, and during this process, they must stay with the mean, and not deviate, for its these deviations away from the mean, in which a character would begin to follow a building of unmoral virtue.Virtuous action being built upon a character that is un-virtuous would therefore contradict the third requirement for an action to virtuous.If this is the case, then it would contradict Aristotle’s third point of performing a virtuous action.Aristotle points out that it becomes the mean, whic...
