The word objective immediately brings to mind a state of actual existence, as opposed to simply ideal existence. We normally associate something like a chair or a table with objective reality, and we don’t consider it to have the same nature of existence as say ‘beauty’ or ‘parenthood’, even though most would agree that all these things ‘exist’ in one way or another. Mackie defines something being objective as ‘Being part of the fabric of the world’, i.e. it has an ontological, mind dependant existence. As a further definition, Mackie posits that an objective moral value has the quality of ‘ought-to-be-pursued-ness’, it is something one should or ought do because it contains an inherently normative aspect.
The author has described it in a narrative but realistic manner rather than presenting his personal point of view. Both in language and culture, the fundamental moral message that literature hopes to disclose is that through reading and learning from life and our surroundings, we can all magnify our moral attitudes and practices. Regarding this point, the main intention here is to be aware of this rich legacy that writers like David Mitchell have accomplished, in order to ignite a moral spark, and a new way of thinking upon new generations like mine. Looking at different perspectives, this whole essay demonstrates that morality is treated in a conceivable way; the limits of our own imagination are forsaken to create unique artistic pieces, transmitting an overall
Christina describes her mother’s primary concerns centralized around how she wished to be perceived by others and the public image she wished to project 74-75). Her false displays of intimacy, excessive vanity, egocentricity, lack of empathy, and attention seeking behavior are evident in her interpersonal relationships and emotional neglect of her children. Her career as a film star exacerbated these negative personality traits (27, 83). Any affection she showed toward Christina usually took the form of a shallow nod of approval or pat on the head for performing tasks such as mixing alcoholic beverages for Joan and her guests or when in the presence of others, but in private her treatment of Christina was very cold and her parenting style was excessively rigid, strict, and authoritarian. She relied primarily on punishment (particularly corporal) and negative reinforcement to gain compliance and desired behavior.
*A note on grading: your essay will be partly graded according to the usual basic standards of good spelling, punctuation, grammar, sentence structure, and organization. Most importantly, though, you should keep in mind that this is a critical essay. As such, you are asked to develop and explain your opinions, raising questions and making observations that you believe help the reader or viewer understand the films more completely. Keep in mind that a “critical” essay does not require you to be “negative” in all your opinions; certainly you can point out and explain what you think are the strongest and most interesting features of the films in question. In critical essays, some of the most important features for the writer to develop are: critical insight (non-obvious ideas or observations that you believe may assist the viewer or reader in “discovering” the films more completely and complexly); originality (putting your own personality and “voice” in your writing); and credibility (your ability to convince the reader that your ideas are sound and interesting).
Truth and Reality: Putnam and the Pragmatist Conception of Truth by Christopher Hookway 1. Introduction: truth, convergence and interests According to Hilary Putnam, “it is virtually a conceptual truth for both Peirce and James [he might have added Dewey] that the long-run opinion of those that inquire, the opinion that they are ‘fated to hold’ is the true one. This is their constitutive account of truth.” (1997: 169). It is expressed in Peirce’s “pragmatic” clarification of the concept of truth as “the opinion which is fated to be agreed to by all who investigate”, but, although endorsed by James and Dewey, it had little role in their philosophical thought. Most contemporary philosophers who draw on pragmatist ideas have rejected it.
It was hard for her to receive so much attention from her father, but have her mother abandon her emotionally. Hadaller wrote “The clear distinction in the novel between Helen’s child Maudie and Milton’s Peyton highlights the intense polarization in the family.”(Hadaller58) It was a twisted situation for the family, Milton choosing Peyton and Helen consuming herself with Maudie. In the end it only caused trouble for everyone. “The dependant Maudie and the fiercely independent Peyton are set up in the novel to dramatize the family’s fracture. Both parents seek to love and adore one child to the exclusion of the
