Thus, they can rightly be considered the first monotheistic religion in the western tradition. Not only did the Jews describe monotheism for the first time, but they also described a God as a personal being with a supreme and transcendent will. The Egyptians, Syrians, and Babylonians of the day in contrast had assigned a deity

Claudia Obeng Intro to Philosophy Professor Wood Paper #2 03/09/15 John Searle: The Chinese Room Argument Is it possible for machines to think? How does the mind work?

Andrew English Professor Snyder Intro. Philosophy April 22, 2015 Paper 2, Question 4 As Human beings, we are “free” the time we are born. The term we use for this is freewill. What I mean by saying this is that us as creatures, can choose whether to be, whatever we want. We are free to our own judgements and actions. Meaning that there is no overpowering force controlling our movements or our thoughts obliging us to do things we do not want to do. However, hard determinism says the exact opposit

Andrew c English Professor Snyder Intro to Philosophy March 3, 2015 Paper 1, Question 4 The world was and is meant to be questioned. Us as Human beings are curious about the life we live in and constantly ask ourselves what is the purpose of life and why are we here. Ancient Philosophers Plato and Aristotle had to consistently deal with questions such as these. These two Greek Philosophers, in all probability, were the two best philosophical minds of their times (besides our professor). Plato wa

Similarities of Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson
Similarities of Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson's works have numerous differences. Compared to Dickinson's short and seemingly simple poems, Whitman's are long and often complex. Yet both twentieth century writers share several similarities when delved into thoroughly. Though their approaches differ, they often deal with the same themes, and both pioneered their own unique style of writing. Using death as a theme is probably the strongest connection that Whitma

[...] Now, at the name of the fabulous artificer, he seemed to hear the noise of dim waves and to see a winged form flying above the waves and slowly climbing the air. What did it mean? Was it a quaint device opening a page of some medieval book of prophecies and symbols, a hawklike man flying sunward above the
