Romanticism

Romanticism

During the nineteenth century there was a literary transformation going on in America that changed many writers? approach and mind-set to writing. This transformation was known as know as Romanticism. William Cullen Bryant, Washington Irving, James Fenimore Copper and Edgar Allen Poe were major contributors to the Romantic Movement. Most of the romantic writings included emotions, imagination and ?reveled in nature.? (220) One poet and poem that applies not only nature, but life and death to emphasize its message, is William Cullen Bryant and his renowned poem ?Thanotopsis?.
A theme that is used in nearly every literary piece is nature, which Romantic poets utilize to convey their overall message to their readers. Bryant is one of the first and most significant poets in America literature. He helps get the ball rolling for the Romantic period while acting as a standard for many aspiring poets for years to come. In his poem ?Thanotopsis? Bryant

Why Industrialization Began In England

Why Industrialization Began In England

England was the predecessor in the industrial revolution because they began industrialization in multiple areas in a dynamic self-feeding manner. The entire country experienced industrialization in agricultural, textile, and trade, some even say human commerce. This movement began an expanded commercial revolution. In this essay, we endeavor to investigate the explosive and vigorous growth of the infrastructure, situational surplus of supplies, population growth, and concurrent transportation developments, which allowed an abundance of capitol growth by which the English Industrial revolution was financed. In the process other countries watched in amazement of England?s progress.
The historians write about the agriculture revolution. What does this mean Simply stated, it meant that farmer were eager and very open to new methods and ideas encompassing all aspects of agriculture. Utilizing new planting techniques increased production, decreased cost of goods and food to the consumer. The appropriate application of science to the farmer?s land increased his yield. Examples of the application of science to farming include field fertilization by manure and other organic products, crop and field use rotation. One would plant wheat, then turnip, the oats or barley then finally

U.S. Vs Asian School System

U.S. Vs Asian School System

Andre? Umansky

Two Systems into One

In the past twenty years the United States school system has been accumulating quite a bit of criticism. Evidence shows that the United States has been lagging exponentially compared to almost all the industrialized countries. This specifically refers to Asian countries that are statistically blowing the U.S. out of the water. Recent survey results in the universal subject of math show us that the U.S. eighth graders have fallen behind, while the twelfth grade level showed only slight improvement (appositive). This means that the U.S. students are barely floating above water, where as, Asian students have built some sort of super boat (appositive). Yet we all recognize that not any one device is perfect, and are usually leaking water in the most unnoticeable spot. Before one realizes the problem, the boat is sinking. We would potentially look at these education systems as extremes of each other. Each education system being on the different side of the spectrum. Both systems having faults and advantages. Taking the positive aspects from both sides and merging them together, a harmonious education system could be established (verb phrase).

Western Civilization

Western Civilization

Greeks viewed gods in different ways. “Poseidon, now with all your
heart defend the Danaas and give them glory, though only for a little, while Zeus still sleeps; since I have mantled a soft slumber about him and Hera beguiled him into sleeping in love beside her” (Iliad 44) shows that Greeks thought gods to be cunning or even deceiving. Even though they are icons of divinity, the fact that they deceive each other shows that they also possess human-like traits. Hera was cunning enough to distract Zeus with a ploy involving intimacy. As a result she was able to get her brother to help an attack on Earth that Hera wanted as victors. Greeks also had a large respect for the gods since they were the supreme beings. In the Iliad Hektor says, “Come then, shall we swear before the gods For these are the highest who shall be witness over our arguments” (Iliad 45) to his opponent, Son of Peleus, during a fight. Gods were respected in a way that the Greeks thought that they were the most intelligent and able to decide what is just.
The Greeks basically stressed the fact that the Gods were the epitome of divinity

Value Of Manufactured Output ? US$ person year

Value Of Manufactured Output ? US$/person/year

Value of Manufactured Output ? US$/person/year

Since the beginning of this century the quantitative approach to the study of economic growth and development got an important stimulus from the increased availability of official statistics on income, output and expenditure. The creation of national accounts on a consistent basis for many countries greatly facilitated systematic comparison of economic performance of nations. However, cross country comparisons of levels of per capita income and productivity have remained relatively scarce. The main reason for this is probably the lack of an appropriate way of converting national income and output for all nations into a common currency. While examining the Value of manufactured output around the world, data confirm that North America and Europe have a major trading industry. For example, the U.S and Russia have comparisons of physical quantities in 8 industries, including three mining industries (coal, iron ore, oil and natural gas). For some machinery groups Soviet output was converted to US dollars on the basis of dollar values from Gerashchenko. Other countries such as Canada, Saudi Arabia, Japan, Brazil, France, Germany, Australia, and The Netherlands all have a tight manufactured trading output.

The Plague

The Plague

The Plague

Around the year 542 AD a great plague came to Constantinople that so gripped the city and eventually the rest of Europe that it has altered the course of history completely. The plague reached Constantinople, the capital of Rome, during the reign of Emperor Justinian, 15 years after he took power. While we will never know the total number of people who perished from the plague it is estimated that at its height the daily death count reached 10,000 people or more.
Most of the information that we have today about the Plague and its origins was written by a man named Procopius who was a legal advisor to a General named Belisarius. Procopius journeyed with Belisarius throught the Mediterranean area around the time the plague exploded. Procopius recorded his observations on how the disease effected the people, and how it ran its course, and because of his accounts, the whole of Europe eventually awakened to the reality and impending doom of the disease spreading everywhere.
From the records we have today we are able to see that the first place the plague was really noticed was the Egyptian harbor town of Pelusium. The town, as most towns throughout Europe

The Old Man And The Perennial Questions

The Old Man And The Perennial Questions

The Old Man and the Perennial Questions

The Old Man and the Sea is a classic novella by Ernest Hemingway that draws upon Socrates? eternal Perennial Questions to put across a theme of honor in struggle, life, and death. The main character, Santiago, is an old fisherman who has been on a low for 84 days. Even though he has not caught anything, the boy, Manolin still looks up to him. Hemingway uses Santiago?s perseverance to show that he is a character to admire. Socrates? questions also emphasize this point. ?Am I free or determined? is the first query that stresses Hemingway?s themes.

In this work, many of Santiago?s actions reflect Socrates? eternal question ?Am I free or determined? The main character feels that he does not control his luck with fishing ? he says it is all up to God. Santiago thus thinks of himself as determined. Manolin, the boy that looks up to the old fisherman, tells Santiago that he is bound to have good luck because he had once gone 87 days without catching a fish. Manolin, also thinks that Santiago is determined, that his catching fish is all dependent on how many days he has gone without caching

Value And Price

Value And Price

Value and Prices

Marx defines value, as the socially necessary labor needed to produce a commodity. To understand what value is we must first understand what socially necessary labor and a commodity are, furthermore how they interact to give us a true value of a given commodity.
A commodity that by which ?a man must not only produce an article satisfying some social want, but also his labor itself must form part and parcel of the total sum of labor expended in society?. (Marx, Capital Vol.1) This is stating that to produce a commodity a man must not only produce it because there is a demand but must also add in all other labor that went into producing the raw materials he is using to make the final commodity. All ?the relative mass of labor? that is needed to make the materials, machines, buildings and tools that were originally used in the making of the raw materials that will eventually become the final commodity. (Marx, Capital Vol.1)
Socially necessary labor can be said to be ?the quantity of labor necessary for its production in a given state of society?. (Marx, Capital Vol.1) Therefore the socially necessary labor time

The Great Man Theory

The Great Man Theory

The Great Man Theory: How Great Is It

In 1840, British historian Thomas Carlyle delivered a string of lectures ?On Heroes, Hero Worship and the Heroic in History?. Here Carlyle submitted his ?Great Man? theory?that exceptional individuals are responsible for instigating momentous change. The theory states that most ages are unable to achieve their full potential because of some kind of political or cultural gridlock. It is only when a great man?a charismatic, powerful leader?enters that the gridlock can be broken and the potential can be realized. To evaluate the theory?s usefulness, its components can be analyzed and applied to two examples of ?great men? of history: Alexander of Macedon, and Gaius Julius Caesar. From these examples, it can be concluded that the ?Great Man? Theory is seriously flawed: it oversimplifies by placing all responsibility in one person.
When addressing whether a ?Great Man? intended to do what he did, the theory is helpful in identifying important actors. After resolving disturbances and revolts within Macedonia and Greece, Alexander the Great thrust into Asia Minor in a campaign that would eventually level the Persian Empire. He pushed through Persia on to the frontiers of
