By and by the curiosity masters the fear, and they come swimming, creeping and flying towards him; and as he is still immovable, they not only resume their haunts and their ordinary labors and manners, show themselves to him in their work-day trim, but also volunteer some degree of advances towards fellowship and good understanding with a biped who behaves so civilly and well. These sentences have a variety of words in them, making the writing less boring, and it puts more emphasis on the short sentences and
The information really stayed on topic while all the different views of the reading, it’s really showed how critical thinking while reading is very important Does the information reflect a bias on the author’s part? If so, what is the bias? No I don’t think the information has any bias on the author’s part at all. The information was very Informative citing other author’s when making references and staying on track with the subject. I think this whole subject and paper was written with facts and no personal biases were added.
“Apology” February 20, 2013 As I read the Apology written by Plato I noticed that Socrates makes his defense in a question and answer type of structure. He is very wise as to asking the right questions. He tries to make Meletos answer his questions as it will prove Socrates defense later. Socrates tries to make Meletos contradict himself and therefore, the contradictions are his defense. For instance, Socrates asks “Do not the good do their neighbors well, and the bad do them evil?
Pythagoras was interested in many things, mathematics, philosophy, astronomy and music. Thales, who was a Greek philosopher and mathematician, influenced him. It is believed that Pythagoras discovered the Pythagorean theorem on his travels to Babylon and India. The Pythagoreans were students of Pythagoras. He taught them about philosophy, mathematics, religion, music and many other things.
Why would a man who tutored the greats care about rhetoric? Aristotle explains through out his piece on how language effects us all and how one may use language to effect someone. From ethos (ethics of the speaker), to logos (logic and reason), to pathos (pathetic appeal), Aristotle muses on how to almost control a crowd and for whom ever your audience is to feel just how the speaker or writer wishes. Although he does not mean to give this privileged information to just anyone, it is destined for those whom are already in power. He on more than on occasions expresses that there are those who lead and those whom must be lead.
Each time Ben had a question about something in his surrounding and tried to figure out why it works the way it works, he was automatically being a scientist. For starters, Ben created for himself, with this; he got the idea of helping others. However, there are several other inventions of Ben that we use in present day but that much in our dally life. Such like the following; clocks, astronomical instrument, the flexible catheter, a clothes pressing machine, improvements in the printing press, laboratory equipment, the glass harmonica, even a chair that can be converted into a ladder!
They are concerned with how well you make your case. Whether they agree or disagree with your judgment is not essential to your mark. Disagreement does not lead to bad marks; bad essays do. If there are important arguments against your position, do not ignore them; deal with them honestly. Give those who disagree with you a fair go.
Smart man Beckman gets an A+ from those who can understand him, but a D from those who didn’t know what the hell he was talking about. The rest of my sources weren’t so bad. The journal (The Case Against Teaching Virtue For Pay: Socrates and Sophists, by David Corey) treated me much better, for in this source you didn’t have to have an extensive knowledge in Greek philosophy. The general gist of the text was arguing payment for teaching virtue because many felt that virtue could not be taught based on the fact that most did not know what virtue was in full. Socrates said that he had no
Let’s take the simple example from above for example. “What are you doing?” is a clear cut and simple message, but depending on the tone of voice an body language it can be interpreted different ways. If the sender has a soft calm voice, and opening body language then the receiver will effectively perceives the message as a general inquiry as to what they are doing. However if the sender has a demanding tone and say a hand on their hip, then the receiver will ineffectively perceive the message as negative and may even take offense to the sender for being demanding. The sender could very easily just be trying to make casual conversation, but depending on the nonverbal communication imbedded in the message will determine if the message is effectively or ineffectively received.
As Haddon is writing the story from Christopher’s perspective, he is reciting the story through the use of Christopher’s characteristics, such as the opening sentence being only three words – “I see everything.” This connotes a feeling that Christopher only wants to get his point across, without having to waffle around with anything else, therefore making his sentences short and precise. Then, he proceeds to illustrate the point by explaining the difference between his perceptions and those of normal people. He uses another short sentence again later on in the chapter by saying “this is the joke.” Again, this implies that he just wants to get his point to the reader without having to go into too much detail. Haddon uses lists and images evidently in this chapter so that he could, again, show the reader the characteristics of Christopher’s condition. He uses the lists to compare the difference of people’s points of view about the field that he was in, with his own.
