Muir reminds me of another man who made a difference to the science world, Charles Darwin. They were both innovators and neither one of them would back down from critics or skeptics. They are role models of some sort. I want to be a man who won’t be affected by a critic and will just go to the lengths to prove my critics wrong. William Anderson once said Muir exemplified ‘the archetype of our oneness with the earth.” For that, I thank John
I believe that life is shaped by unique ambitions that seem so magical at a young age. My life so far has been a striking example of this. Ever since my childhood biology and especially medical sciences have never failed to fascinate me. One of my distinct memories from middle school is a lecture on cell biology and physiology. I was amazed at how something so microscopic could be so well-organized and carry out functions that have such a profound effect on the entire organism.
One advancement during the early modern word that was widely discussed was the scientific revolution. From the many inventions of Nicolaus Copernicus, Galileo Galliei took interest in his telescope and enhanced it tremendously. Before Galileo’s time the European people had the highest respect for the Pope so therefore always listened to what the church said. Galileo said
Edmund Beecher Wilson There have been a huge amount of scientists who have made extremely important contributions that help us better understand science today. More specifically, many have made contributions to the field of genetics. Now we better understand genetics and can learn from the experiments and findings of great scientists from the past. Edmund Beecher Wilson was one of those great scientists, having been a pioneering American zoologist and geneticist. He was the son of a circuit judge, but instead of going into the field of law, he chose to study biology at Yale University.
Since the begging of humanity, mankind tries to predict the soon to be future. Many scientific books and movies thrilled readers and viewers with visions of the future world. The book Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and the movie Matrix directed by The Wachowski Brothers tried to put forth-such views. The strongest theme in both the book and the movie was the idea that as humanity progresses through the centuries, the advancement of science leads to perfecting the world that man lives in, which in turn conflicts with human individuality. Although, the concept is similar in both the book and the movie the portrayal of the conflict is different.
Guns Germs and Steel Quotes “History followed different courses for different peoples because of differences among peoples' environments, not because of biological differences among peoples themselves” (p. 39). This quote has a very strong message that is proven correct not only in the past but also today. Because of that message I chose to write about this quote. When we look at the most powerful communities today we see that they are all located near areas with ample natural resources. When the first community was found to have been located in Mesopotamia, near the Tigris and Euphrates river, it was no coincidence that the settlers remained in that location, but because of the rich and workable environment.
The second sentence says that he has created one of the greatest inventions ever and different people have used it to make new and approved products. The last sentence translates that he’s proud of his accomplishment and that the world has benefited from it. Hopefully, people have taken these words and realized how lucky they are and are indeed touched by the fact that he said this. All of the things that I said before were ways that Charles Goodyear has touched many lives. He has a great history behind him even with a harsh life.
Ambition has led people and characters of various professions such as politician, inventor, and scientist who have searched for power or knowledge, to their own ruin. This becomes evident in the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. Due to being overly ambitious Victor Frankenstein is able to create life, but the consequences of his ambition soon catch up to him. The consequences do not affect just Victor
Ben Franklin was one of our founders of the United States, an inventor, and involved in politics. Benjamin Franklin must have had is time very well organized to become all of this. Furthermore, Ben Franklin was always humble with the great achievements he accomplished during his lifetime. Not just was he humble with the inventions he made, but his inventions also helped everyone else. For example, starting a library has helped everyone’s education.
We don’t need more STEM In today’s day and age, with the way we learn and the way things are taught, the liberal arts are more important than the STEM program. There’s absolutely no need to just cut of the liberal arts completely. Liberal arts has been being taught to college students for many years we should not just change that out of nowhere going from arts, natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities, to just science technology engineering and math. The liberal arts are very important in the learning and history field. “Leonardo’s curiosity and passion for painting, writing, engineering and biology helped him triumph in both art and science”.
