Michael Lindsay‘s article “Evangelicalism Rebounds in Academia” explores the growing importance of evangelicalism in post secondary institutions. Lindsay suggests that diversifying college campuses by increasing the evangelical population leads to a more profound understanding in campuses. By providing hard evidence and alluding to renowned literature Lindsey successfully educates the reader in the evangelical movement and its benefits to society. Michael Lindsay is a well educated evangelical who is the assistant professor of sociology and assistant director of the Center on Race, Religion and Urban Life at Rice University in Houston. He has published three books and written many articles for well-known magazines and newspapers.
In the novel, Chillingworth displays malevolence and iniquity. However, he also can be seen to portray innocence and good moral character. Roger Chillingworth can be seen as good character when he says, Dost thou remember me, Hester, as I was nine years agone? Even then, I was in the autumn of my days, nor was it the early autumn. But all my life had been made up of earnest, studious, thoughtful, quiet years, bestowed faithfully for the increase of mine own knowledge, and faithfully, too, though this latter object was but casual to the other,—faithfully for the advancement of human welfare.
Yet close to the end of Table XI, Gilgamesh seems to feel emotions one wouldn’t believe he was capable of. This brute of God/man finally expressed more than his superior nature. He showed caring, compassion, and love for his friend. He showed that his true fear was one thing, Death. His arrogant evil ways seems to fade as the epic continues and almost disappear.
Soon after Antipas and Luke’s correspondence started both men realized that they have some similar interests as the writings of Luke writings about Jesus life. The conversation between Antipas and Luke covered both historical and spiritual themes that were popular the their time. The gladiator fights and terrible events coming after that were also deliberated between the two. As the debate flourished to more spiritual level Luke started to tell more and more about Jesus. Antipas replied to Luke saying, “If the goal of your narrative is to demonstrate Jesus’ claim to honor, it will have a lot of ground to cover” (Lost Letters of Pergamum 63).
The young pastor suffers endlessly throughout the book. In contrast to the strong willed Hester, Dimmsdale is seen as quite cowardly. He shies away from the letter. This demonstrates that he doesn’t like to show himself for who he is. Since he is more weak spirited than Hester, as shown in “His spirit lacked the strength that could have borne up, as thine has been, beneath a burden like thy scarlet letter," (ch.14) The letters weight affects him more.
The Scarlet Letter, written by Nathaniel Hawthorne and published in 1850, was just what America was needing in his time. He composed a both beautiful and tragic story while still creating a deep symbolic novel that few could forget. He captivated his readers with his allegorical novel, depending on symbolism and characters heavily, in the style of true dark romanticism. The novel deals with many issues that were prominent at the time, such as the importance of society versus nature, human temptation versus society’s influence, and many others. In Hawthorne’s novel The Scarlet Letter, he focuses on the conflicting views of society and nature in the Puritan society and uses contrast, symbolism, and imagery to convey his beliefs.
In 1616, he received his baccalaureate and licentiate degrees in Law. Aside from his Law degrees, Descartes also spent time studying philosophy, theology, and medicine. After a short stay in the military, Descartes went on to lead a quiet life, continuing his intellectual pursuits, writing philosophical essays, and exploring the world of science and mathematics. In 1637, he published "geometry", in which his combination of algebra and geometry gave birth to analytical geometry, better known as Cartesian geometry. But the most important contribution Descartes made were his philosophical writings; Descartes, who was convinced that science and mathematics could be used to explain everything in nature, was the first to describe the physical universe in terms of matter and motion, seeing the universe as a giant mathematically designed engine.
Earlier challenges in his life greatly shaped his character into the well-known theorist we reference today which is merely inspiring. Years later, not only did Fritz complete high school but he went on to become a physician to earn his medical degree (MD) with
There is nothing spectacular at his appearance though. He is a middle-aged, tall and well-built man. He has a tanned complexion, with some wrinkles here and there, the only ones that make it more difficult for him to defy his age. He has two of the warmest and gentle brown eyes that I have ever seen and which, as the saying goes, are “the mirror of the soul”. He has thin lips, which can sometimes be cracked, as a sign of the level of stress he experiences everyday at work.
