This leaves out the lower class’s beliefs on the use of technology, as well as women and middle class’s views (who used technology the most in their daily lives). One must not draw or base conclusions on the use of technology off of these documents only, because they provide limited-to-no information on missing voices. Half of the documents provided regarding Rome were supportive of technology. Both documents 6 and 8 tell of Plutarch and Frontinus’s attention to detail and capabilities of Roman technology. Plutarch, for one, likes technology, but he simply shows his thinking on the use of well-designed roads, which could only be used by the elite anyways.
Around the dawn of the first millennium, the Han and Roman attitudes toward technology were both of self betterment, however the Han Empire in China placed a much greater worth on technological enhancements than the Roman Empire did. However, it should be noted that every document was written by someone of the upper class, giving no insight into how people of lesser status felt towards technology. This, plus the fact that there are no female perspectives, shows how only a very narrow segment of a larger society felt towards technological advancement. An additional document from either would provide only further to help the understanding of societal attitudes to technology. The Han's view of technology was very self glorifying.
Overall I believe that the economy for pre-Conquest England as well- governed to an extent as the King did have large control, he did control this well, but he may have been seen as too powerful where the government is concerned. However it wasn't well developed so therefore in my opinion it wasn't very prosperous. The political aspect of pre-conquest England was fairly good due to the fact that Edwards court
This Is important in the controlling, however not as important as other reasons such as the Army or Trade. Non-Romans; In the roman empire , Romans were very open to Non-Romans , foreigners had no trouble becoming generals or sometimes even Emperor which made it even easier for new people to integrate in Rome. This isn’t really a huge part in controlling the empire in the sense that Non-Romans had no real authority with Rome’s going on with conquering’s unless they were in the Army. Buildings; The Roman soldiers weren’t only warriors but also were skilled builders, they built roads so messages could be sent easier across the empire, also they built aqueducts which brought in clean water and made the people happy. They also built forts which help protect them when in battle.
Transcendentalism Essay In today’s society, the most successful people are not usually the most likeable and popular. They also don’t do the usual things that are expected from average people, whom are not successful. This special quality makes them stand out in the world. Ralph Waldo Emerson stated, “To be great is to be misunderstood”, which shows that the great, successful people in society may not fit in. To be great, people must be hard working, have good work ethic, and not care what others think of them for their actions.
History Essay In Han China and the Romans, both have different attitudes towards technology. Some people were happy to have technology, while others weren’t looking forward to working with tools, but despite their complaints, the Hans and the Romans people still view differently at how the technology affects their life. Some view technology as a tool to use people to get what the government want, some viewed technology as beneficial, while others wanted to help make labor easier on people. In documents 2 and 5, people were used to achieve what the government wanted. Cicero, an upper-class Roman political leader said that “vulgar and unbecoming to a gentleman”, (Doc 5) is what men are turning into.
The fact the Romans treated the Britons harshly and took advantage of them financially meant that there were enough people amongst other tribes to join Boudicca’s revolt. Therefore this was another cause of the revolt. The failure of Boudicca’s revolt was basically due to the fact that the Romans were professional soldiers, and the tribes who revolted against them were not. They also lacked the organization needed to successfully overthrow a powerful army such as the Romans. The Iceni were voluntary allies of Rome while Prasutagus, their king, was alive.
Secondary The theory ignores a secondary theory, this is due to the fact that our lives are now involved in technology, to the point which we no longer are able to interact with each other, but we are able to type a message or send a video in order to communicate. Social Class: By the late 20th century people did not feel that they had to define their self, based on the success they had, an example would be that a middle class citizen would have to work hard to earn the class of middle, and that was their success, however they believed that any success they had, such as good health, was a part of them. Social Expectations: Postmodernism expected people to be able to sell different items for a profit, for example, people from the HGP (Human Genome Project) were aiming to identify the genes of a human before another, which would mean they would ‘own’ part of the human gene, which they owned and
Another point of viewing the education system of the time was that learning these ideas and skills lead to a better moral being. Contrary to those opinions some were against this type of education, they thought that this extensive learning of the arts and the humanities wasn’t as important as being educated in everyday tasks. During the Renaissance era, the arts were greatly valued. To learn things such as history, poetry, literatures and the Latin language were considered primary skills. The arts were very popular, if you were a skilled artist you could be patroned by the wealthy families and become extremely famous and successful.
