When he says “Drive me out of this country as quickly as may be to a place where no human voice can ever greet me.” (Ln. 1382-1383), he telling Creon to exile him so that he doesn’t have to talk to anyone. Oedipus did sinfully wrong crimes and instead of standing up for himself he
Mill would say that if God is omniscient then surely he is aware of our suffering and would therefore intervene in the evil as he loves us all. Yet God still allows our suffering to continue which suggests that God is not powerful (omnipotent) at all and cannot stop us or save us from this evil. Mill also believes that the natural disasters and natural problems within the human body such as curable or incurable cancers and diseases such as motor-neurone disease (causes of the body to shut down slowly) for example show faults in the design. These disaster show poor design but how can an all knowing
The best an account of war can hope to accomplish is to remind readers that you can’t ever really wrap your mind around what it’s like for those on the ground, because you can never know or really get it until you live it. And Kyle hits his mark there. Time and time again, they were in dangerous situations, and all I could think with each page of battle was that it all seemed unreal, like a movie. And that thought was quickly followed by the realization that everything was very real, and I just couldn’t fully comprehend a reality like that. I don’t imagine that most people want to know what a single firefight is like, yet these men actively hoped for these situations so they could take down evil.
He does not listen to Teiresias’ warning. Teiresias tells Creon to make right of his abuse of power by granting proper burial rights and freeing Antigone from her impending death. Teiresias warns Creon that his corruption, stubbornness, and disregard for citizen’s rights is an abuse of his power. Because Teiresias is always right, Creon eventually decides to listen to him. This conflict proves the quote true because Creon disrespects the gods because of his new power.
Brutus knew that he had to put an end to Caesar's rain, but in order to do so, he had to take the life of the man he was once so close to. Brutus killed Caesar, not to better himself but to save Rome from the tyranny that was to come. “Stoop, Romans, stoop And let us bathe our hands in Caesar's blood Up to the elbows, and besmear our sword: Then walk we forth even to the market-place, And, waving our red weapons o'er our heads, Let's all cry 'Peace, freedom and liberty!'”(3.1.105-10). Brutus's thought process was that if he killed Caesar, Rome would be at peace. It is true that this isn't what comes in return for the death of Caesar.
It would be some sort of game to create children as you wish and start a pure race. Nothing would be left undecided; it would all be planned. Then, comes the possibility of error. For example, Vincent, conceived naturally, was predicted to die at the age of 30 but he beat those predictions and outlived them. We, as humans aren’t perfect and what is trying to be reached is perfection, which is obviously impossible.
If Frankenstein had looked to his family and friends more, instead of his studies and work the outcome of his fate would have been quite different. Walton decides to take a different route as he says “The die is cast; I have consented to return if we are not destroyed. Thus are my hopes blasted by cowardice and indecision; I come back ignorant and disappointed. It requires more philosophy than I possess to bear this injustice with patience.” He realizes he would rather have his life then new knowledge and takes safety over dangers of exploration. Unlike what Victor had decided to do.
The aberrant perspective of Gilgamesh which I am presenting may seem divergent and atypical when analysed in accordance to our modern values and principles, but to Gilgamesh this would be quite natural. The values and ethics that contemporary readers hold shape their perspective of characters as they respond in various ways to the adventures that said characters undertake. A perfect example of this is when the narrator speaks of the state of Uruk and says “No son is left with his father, for Gilgamesh takes them all”. From this, the contemporary audience frames Gilgamesh as an immoral tyrant, as their value of free will is being challenged. However, Gilgamesh’s intentions were in the interest of the people, as he moulded the sons into warriors to protect the city.
He actually risked his life and tried to triple his IQ, by going through a surgery. He was also cheated and was not told that there wasn’t enough research in that area. The saddest and worst effect was that he will always remember being a brilliant genius but he will never get the chance to be on again. That is just a little bit compared to the other sad things he went through, but that is why I am against him having the
He quickly grows a negative view upon humanity. “My soul glowed with love and humanity: but am I not alone, miserably alone?" The monster was able to create this bond initially with humanity, which they couldn’t make it with him. So morally what makes him any less human. This could represent Shelley’s view that man in the religious times, rejects something who’s characteristics do not fit gods standards.
