The Effects of Philosophy from the Renaissance to the Modern Age Era

...The Effects of Philosophy From The Renaissance to the Modern Age Era Philosophy for most of Europe was latent throughout the entire Middle Ages which lasted nearly nine centuries. Medieval Philosophy was the only recognized and practiced philosophy during that time period. There were individuals during the Medieval time period that tried to preach different philosophies, however it was not something that was encouraged. If someone tried speaking publicly about a different way of life or theory on life, they were usually brutally chastised. When the Church began to restore power it helped to the “rebirth” of philosophy. Towards the late Middle Ages and beginning of the Renaissance era, there were several very influential philosophers’ starting to rise such as Marsilio Ficino and Giovanni Pico della Mirandola (Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy, 2012). It was philosophers like these men that contributed towards the rebirth of philosophy. The Church did have some involvement in this movement as well. It was then that the Churches began to rise against foreign enemies and stand up for their selves. They started to break out of the orthodox way of life they were used to. The Church showed people that there is still hope. That is when people started to bestow their selves in the Church and grasped on to the thought of change. Once people started to think for themselves, they began to realize there is more to life, and life may actually have a purpose. That is where......

The Artist

...Introduction In current world of moviemaking, films are often created to meet the formula that appeal to today’s audiences. Modern movies offer high action, incredible special effects, 3D, or 3D animation to capture the audience’s attention, but one Oscar winning film deviated from this traditional recipe, “The Artist”. French director Michel Hazanavicius brought back to life the bygone era of silent movies and broke the current Hollywood blueprint. A quote from the novel “The Chosen” seems appropriate when describing this film, “I've begun to realize that you can listen to silence and learn from it. It has a quality and a dimension all its own” (Potok, 1967). “The Artist” The year is 1927 and Hollywood is in its last few years of silent movie production. A new and exciting medium is starting to make its way into the theaters, the “talkies.” George Valentine (Jean Dujardin), a mixture of Rudolf Valentino, Errol Flynn, and Douglas Fairbanks, is the biggest superstar at the studio he works for and on the silent screen. Peppy Miller (Bérénice Bejo) is the fledgling extra looking to find her way in Hollywood. Peppy, with her unforgettable smile and charm makes an impression on George who happens to be at odds with his wife in his personal life. There is obvious chemistry between the two that is sparked in a playful dance scene when George mimics the steps of Peppy, but doesn’t realize who it is because he can only see her legs. George and......

Modern Family Law in India

...Modern Family Law: Changing attitudes and Agendas in the Personal Laws and the Uniform Civil Code Introduction: In the current modern state the need for a legal centralism is required. The dominant legal model of the uniform legal system brings out the modern State and the attitude of the people. India is one of the many countries in which the uniform legal system has gained such momentum maybe not in implementation but has gained much interest in a heated political debate. Article 44 of the Constitution of India, 1950 has anticipated the eventual implementation of the uniform legal system. Article 44 in the constitution of 1950, reads, “Uniform Civil Code for the citizens of India- the State shall endeavor to secure for the citizens a uniform civil code throughout the territory of India.” But the much anticipated eventuality has been a distant dream since the past 60 years. India is known for its socio-economic diversities and inequalities. India is one of the most diverse democracies of the world. India’s secularism which is enshrined in the preamble of the constitution is not an anti-religious policy but outlook to frame the country into one entity. India’s pluralism is linked with how the Hindu culture has never been mono-cultural or monotheistic. India’s democracy also aims at providing all citizens equal rights; this premise is based on treating equals equally. There are many shifting agendas in the personal laws in India. People’s outlook towards bigamy ,......

Transmission of Buddhism from India to China

...Hao Tran Prof. Penkower Religion 1550 5 November 2013 Tu/Th – 2:30 pm Transmission of Buddhism from India to China There is a phrase that goes like this, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” This phrase can be used to accurately describe the Han’s dynasty’s attitudes and beliefs when the nation is prosperous with wealth, land, and culture. During this time, Buddhism is non-existence in China because change is unnecessary, since there is no urgency to adopt a new idea when the existing one work well for them. However, during the turmoil and the downfall of the Han’s dynasty, the Chinese seeks answers and salvation from “a promising seed-bed for the implantation of alien ideas and institutions” (Wright 20). This alien idea is known as Buddhism and it will spread to the South and North of China. Nevertheless, the transmission of Buddhism from India to China did not go smoothly and many obstacles lie on the way from the similarities and differences between two countries, adaptation that must take place from both sides, and the socio-political conditions that must occur for Buddhism in China to flourish. Fortunately, even though not much, there are some similarities between Indian culture and Chinese that help Buddhism to emerge in an “age of cataclysmic change” (Wright 34). First, the worships of many Buddha and bodhisattva can be related to the Chinese, since China is a polytheism society. Therefore, the Buddha and bodhisattva can just be one of the many gods......

Hats Off to All Artists, from an Ex-Non-Believer

...Like a lot of of people in the world, I used to ridicule and make fun of artists - all kinds of artists. Anyone in the arts and fine arts stream, though I just kept that to myself. But i recently hit another way of thinking. Something which made me respect them over most other jobs in the world. If you think about it, God made us all using a variety of combinations of things (which we identify as elements today). Humans are made out of carbon, just like diamonds. So technically, isn't that what all artists are doing today??? Using the things around them in different combinations or showing the something in a different light. Like a scientist, or an architect. But the same goes for say writing literature, painting, sculpturing, photography, dancing, singing, etc etc. For example, if one makes a song, you need the key melody which is a combination of sounds that we hear in nature, then the tune is built on that, lyrics are needed to give it meaning in a way we can understand it, different instruments and beats are needed, and lastly, a well trained voice to bring it to life. Then the song is layered and it goes on... BUT Isn't that exactly what all artists strive to do everyday?? Isn't it similar to doing something only God can do, though its on earth? I think that's respectable. I think that deserves the high amount that artists earn. It deserves respect since not many people can do it to that degree. Seriously, they are giving life to something which most people......

To What Extent Does Modern Liberalism Depart from Classical Liberalism

...The classical liberal ideology emerged as a result of the Enlightenment period, which brought about new philosophies, challenging the existing assumptions about the nature of humankind and society. Modern liberalism developed around 1870 as a result of both philosophical and practical changes, including mass industrialisation. Classical liberals argue that modern liberalism has broken the principles of doctrines central to liberal thought whilst modern liberals claim that they are simply adapting and building on classical liberalist ideas. This essay will discuss the extent to which modern liberalism departs from classical liberalisms by analysing approaches to the size of the state, democracy and the concept of freedom and aims to justify the argument that modern liberalism departs considerably from classical liberalism. Modern liberalism departs from the ideas of classical liberalism with regards to the concept of freedom, although the extent of difference is limited. Isiah Berlin first discussed the concept of freedom in an essay published in 1958. Berlin proposed two concepts of liberty; positive, which is supported by modern liberalists, and negative, which is supported by classical liberals. The classical conception of negative liberty suggests that society is best when there is an absence of external restrictions or constraints on the individual. Therefore, classical liberals strongly supported full individual freedom. John Stuart Mill, a political philosopher......

The Emergence of Modern America from Reconstruction to an Industrial Power (1865 – 1890)

...The Emergence of Modern America from Reconstruction to an Industrial Power (1865 – 1890) Student’s Name Institution The Emergence of Modern America from Reconstruction to an Industrial Power (1865 – 1890) Reconstruction of modern America was not a missed opportunity because of rapid economic growth and prosperity, unified nation with a powerful government and political and business reforms (Carnes, Mark & Garraty, 2011). During this period in the 19th century, America emerged as an industrial power and agricultural power mostly in the North and the West and not in the South. This phase of reconstruction made America dominate as the World’s largest economic power. America also rose as a superpower nation with one of the strongest governments in the world (Kennedy, David, Cohen & Lizabeth, 2012). Another positive effect of reconstruction of America is that it led to an end of the infamous Trans-Atlantic slave trade. In this trade, slaves were sourced from West Africa and were sold in the slave markets in America, slaves were sold to be exploited as cheap sources of labor, they were treated inhumanely. Reconstruction, therefore, ended this commerce and gave the slaves their right of citizenship. Actually, in 1867 and for the first time slaves were allowed to vote. Reconstruction era also led to social and business reforms in America. These changes resulted in the expansion of government and education, curtailment of excesses, recognition of......

To What Extent Has Modern Liberalism Departed from Classical Liberalism by giving them the means to do so. A third belief that liberals have regarding the individual is that the state is regarded as a ‘necessary evil’. This means that classical liberals believe the state should only exist in order to lay down the law and keep order, every other form of intervention should be kept to a minimum so as to keep individual freedom at a maximum. Modern liberals differ greatly on this view of individualism. Modern liberals believe in developmental individualism over egoistical individualism. Developmental individualism is the goal to see the human race flourish as a whole rather than to see the individual get the best that they possibly can. So for this reason modern liberals view society as a whole rather than as atomistic parts. Modern liberals also believe in positive freedom over the negative freedom classical liberals favour, this means that they would rather enable the individual to achieve their goals as they believe it furthers societies prospects as a whole. Modern liberalism, in the case of individuality, therefore differs greatly from classical liberalism in that moderns believe society should be more equal and almost provide a socialist way of viewing liberalism. Classical liberals also believe in freedom; this could be freedom of the people or freedom of economics, classicals believe in not interfering in anything like this. In the case of free market and free economics classical liberals believe that by allowing the market to be......

It from India

...IT from India’ to 'IT for India' Bottom of Form India has come a long way as a supplier of IT services to the world. Analysts say that India has revolutionized the services sector the same way as Japan changed the manufacturing sector. But, Indian IT sector has mainly catered to a global market, and very little was done for the local market in India in the past. India presents a very large untapped market in terms of technology adoption and usage. The scope of technology development for India as a market is at a position when the world was some 15 years ago. The major advantage is that India can start implementing technology from the point where the rest of the world is right now. It can leapfrog ahead of the rest of the world with very little legacy technology to cope with. Indian Market-India should be considered not as a country but as another world in itself. People have committed the mistake of considering it as a single big unit of similar attributes and needs or in other cases, seen little value in understanding the diversity of the country. They concentrated more on the well-off English speaking crowd of the country and never seen any true value in tapping the regional segments. FMCG, Education, Entertainment almost everyone else except IT has understood the value of tapping into the regional segments. This can be mainly attributed to the fact that IT was never meant for the Indian market. While other industries aimed to cater to local demand, IT was basically......

To What Extent Has Modern Liberalism Departed from Classical Liberalism 40

...are huge differences between classical and modern liberalism and as a result classical liberals believe that modern liberals have not stayed true to initial ideas posed by the likes of John Locke given that modern liberals have embraced collectivism while classical liberals favoured pure individualism. But they are fundamentally both forms of liberalism so are united in their belief of freedom and rights of the individual but they have slightly different views on the type of freedom they support. Classical liberalism has a belief in utilitarianism first posed by Jeremy Bentham, this is where individuals make tiny calculations about whether their actions will ‘maximise pleasure or minimise pain’. This is an egotistical form of individualism that assumes individuals are motivated by self-interest. Modern liberals do not share this view as they see it as a flawed method. This view of classical liberalism was opposite to that of paternalistic conservatism, who believe that the state can make the best decisions for the individual whereas classical liberals such as Bentham believed individuals knew what was best for themselves and thus can have the responsibility and freedom to act as they choose. This means that because the likes of Locke and Bentham prioritised the freedom and happiness of the individual, this leads classical liberals to a belief in negative freedom, which argues that there should be a removal of external restrictions from the individual. This is effectively any......

India from 1918-1947

...In 1900, India was part of the British Empire; but by the end of 1947, India had achieved independence. For most of the Nineteenth Century, India was ruled by the British. India was considered the jewel in the crown of the British Empire. Queen Victoria had been made Empress of India and the British had a major military presence in India. Indian nationals had no say in central government and even at a local level, their influence on policy and decision making was minimal. In 1885, educated middle class nationals had founded the Indian National Conference (INC). Their aim was to get a much greater say in the way India was governed. In response to this development, the Morley-Minto reforms were introduced in 1909. Morley was the Secretary of State for India and Lord Morley was Viceroy of India. Their reforms lead to each province in India having its own governor and Indian nationals were allowed to sit on the councils which advised these governors. After 1918, nationalism within India intensified. This was probably due to 2 reasons: 1. Many educated nationals in India were far from satisfied with the Morley-Minto reforms. White Englishmen still dominated India and there had been no real decrease in their power or increase in national power. The INC (Indian National Council) wanted a lot more. 2. Woodrow Wilson had stimulated the minds of many people with his belief in national self-determination – i.e. that people from a country had a right to govern......

About India from Wiki

...Will loaded soon... Sorry India (i/ˈɪndiə/), officially the Republic of India (Bhārat Gaṇarājya),[c] is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country with over 1.2 billion people, and the most populous democracy in the world. Bounded by the Indian Ocean on the south, the Arabian Sea on the south-west, and the Bay of Bengal on the south-east, it shares land borders with Pakistan to the west;[d] China, Nepal, and Bhutan to the north-east; and Burma and Bangladesh to the east. In the Indian Ocean, India is in the vicinity of Sri Lanka and the Maldives; in addition, India's Andaman and Nicobar Islands share a maritime border with Thailand and Indonesia. Home to the ancient Indus Valley Civilisation and a region of historic trade routes and vast empires, the Indian subcontinent was identified with its commercial and cultural wealth for much of its long history.[9] Four of the world's major religions—Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism—originated here, whereas Zoroastrianism, Christianity, and Islam arrived in the 1st millennium CE and also helped shape the region's diverse culture. Gradually annexed by and brought under the administration of the British East India Company from the early 18th century and administered directly by the United Kingdom from the mid-19th century, India became an independent nation in 1947 after a struggle for independence that was marked by non-violent resistance led by Mahatma......
