I would like to ask if Mr X suffering from depression? As a therapist it would be unethical for me to treat a patient who suffers depression. In this instance I would suggest to Mr X as politely and as tactfully as possible that he seek help or advice from his account GP before seeking any further assistance from me. This is obviously assuming that as an ethical and professional therapist I have taken a medical history and have asked for information regarding any medication Mr X is taking and also any additional or alternative treatment he is receiving and have taken it all into. As a novice therapist I am not allowed to treat a client who is suffering from depression and I would try to refer Mr X to a more experienced professional.
Except me those words don't fit with the quote I chose. I chose this quote because I can't seem to wrap my finger on why Vonnegut is putting up this wall, as if death, war, and all the tragedies can just be brushed off your shoulder like nothing.
In Fahrenheit 451, Bradbury emphasizes a world in which books are of little importance and forbidden. Firemen like Montag, burn books without knowing the reasoning behind it. In Bradbury's novel, education's emphasis on technology leads to a culture where people understand how things are done but never bother to wonder why things are done. Such an education discourages people from developing their creative abilities, and as the narrative points out several times, those who cannot build destroy. The result is a society where fanatical, destructive behavior, such as the firemen's book-burning, flourishes.
This relates to reputation by how Elizabeth is telling John that he shouldn't care what people think about him about his decisions. In the connection with the theme reputation Danforth is taking to John on page 140 and 141. Danforth: Proctor, you mistake me. I am not empowered to trade your life for a lie. You have most certainly seen some person with the Devil.
After reading One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest, it is impossible for one to hold the same meanings for the words sane, insane, health, and sick. It is obvious that extreme caution should be taken before labeling a person as one of these things too quickly. What is seen from the outside is certainly not always reality. In the novel, most of the sane persons could easily be called the opposite, and vice versa. Moral of the story: Dont judge a book by its

When reading a work, the “common” reader has already made the decision to not “collaborate” with the author’s ideas, and chooses not to leave their “mark” on the work as they overlook the opportunity to perform a deeper analysis of the main ideas. Due to the “common” reader’s inability to conceptualize the deeper meanings of certain ideas, he or she is therefore unable to comprehend all of the concepts the author intended to convey to readers. The “common” reader reads Percy’s essay "The Loss of the Creature" and extracts only the main ideas of the work, as they miss out on a “deeper” understanding of the concepts given by Percy. The “common” reader would most likely read each paragraph as a boring collection of meaningless statements, as they put strong emphasis on noting the simple ideas of a topic, instead of analyzing the main ideas and making comprehension of these concepts the main priority. Percy introduces an example that effectively allows different types of readers to be immediately distinguished based on how they choose to perceive certain
Simply just avoid the statue. The same goes with books. If you don’t like a book, such as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn because of the strong racial view against African Americans, then don’t read the book. In this essay the writer explores the ideas of what I just stated in the above paragraph and it makes total sense. The
O'Brien leaves out the conclusion to the tale about Mary Anne, instead letting her characters pass into the state of myth. Rather than allowing us to know what becomes of someone who undergoes a violent loss of innocence, we are left wondering how war affects a person, and to what ends of time that person will continue to feel its effect. The one piece of "knowledge" that Mary Anne's story teaches us is that once innocence is lost, it can never be
K. V. ENG 101 3/31/14 To Ban or Not to Ban In Dennis Baron’s, Don’t make English Official- Ban it Instead he is insisting that instead of making English the official language of the United States, we should just get rid of it altogether. In his small article he manages to whip up six small arguments to convince the readers of his ludicrous proposal. Rather than actually convincing the readers, his points are unclear, sometimes confusing and unsatisfying. In the end he doesn’t actually set up a solution for his readers, and leaves them with the whole “so what was the point,” feeling. Through his poor perspectives and unfocused essay, I am far from convinced that English should not be the official language but banned.
