I will share my ideas and thoughts on what is my philosophy of life. The way have experience life has made me change my way thinking more then once, am sure it will change again. What is my purpose in life? What is anybodyâ€™s purpose in life? Thatâ€™s a question that we all deal with, why are we here, what is the point of life?...

When the movie Independence Day came out in 1996, I wanted to work for the Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI). While I have never realized that dream, it did spark in me an extremely strong desire for knowledge and wisdom of pure science, which has evolved into an even greater desire to understand the fundamental properties of this universe. It’s ironic really, because, according to Philosophy: The Power of Ideas, Western philosophy began when Thales of Greece considered the possibility that there must be some “fundamental kind of stuff” everything in the universe is made of. (Moore 22) While Thales was on the right track, he was wrong to suggest that thing...

Running head: GREEK PHILOSOPHY
November 03, 2009
Greek Philosophy is a great civilization that is very much still a part of our culture and everyday living of today. These great men discovered things that were too advance for their life time. Without them, society of today will not have geometry, logic or natural sciences. The term philosophy is Greek in origin meaning “love of wisdom.” (Owens, 2003) Pythagoras suggested that “wisdom is something divine and man cannot be truly wise but a lover of wisdom.” (Owen, 2003)
Greek philosophy began around 1200 B.C.E. Historians believe that it was...

My current teaching philosophy incorporates motivation, commonality, other’s characteristics, making a difference, and relevance, as well as, values, the learning environment, and student/teacher relationship. First, I think the subject that is being taught should motivate the instructor. Knowing what one’s motivation is will enable a continuous cycle of success in student/teacher interaction. A motivated instructor learns as much as possible about the subject and passes it on to the student. In turn, the student is motivated to apply what is learned. A motivated instructor motivates the student. Ultimately, this will be a common occurrence. Teaching should maneuver the learning system...

PAPER # 1
The book The Republic by Plato, was written in Athens around 380 B.C. Around that time Plato wasn’t so happy with the conditions in Athens. This book is focused on the conception of justice and what it is to be just. This theory has been presented differently by each of the characters in the book, which are Cephalus, Polymarchus, Thrasymachus, and Glaucon. However, Socrates is the one who is given a challenge: to prove that justice is good and desirable.
The book starts off with Cephalus giving his own conception of justice, which he believes to be “justice is nothing more than honoring legal obligations and being honest”. However, Socrate’s counterexample...

Personal Philosophy of Education
My personal philosophy of education and, indispensable goal for my future classroom is that all students need to have freedom for expression and creativity. Students should be able to find their own strengths and weaknesses, in terms of their social, emotional, intellectual and physical development and skills. While it is known that all children have the option to be competent within their learning and development, I believe the purpose of education within this framework is for teachers to guide their students with an intention of creating well accomplished and independent Australian citizens of future generations. It is crucial that children...

Philosophy of Education
The many different ways that students learn is what we call the philosophies of educations. Throughout the experience in this class I would not have had the chance to learn so much that I know I will be able to take with me in my future of becoming a teacher. The many philosophies inform us that not every student is the same and, we as teachers need to take the time to truly figure out what will be most excellent for our future classroom.
Getting the chance to take this class has helped me really understand what my philosophy of education is going to be. Through all of our discussions I tend to see myself always leaning to the side of relating situations back to...

The Philosophy of Socrates
I believe Socrates is the most influential philosopher of all time is the great Socrates. It is simply astounding that such well thought out ideas were formed thousands of years ago. I enjoy how Socrates spent his life striving to help others teach themselves rather than simply throw information at them. Socrates dedicated his life to better himself as well as others, and that is why I consider him the best philosopher of all time.
Before devoting his life to philosophy, Socrates served in the Athenian army, which was required of all citizens. Socrates was widely known for his bravery and courageousness, traits that showed throughout his lifetime. It is...

Philosophy of Music Education
My Philosophy of Music Education
Music is more than just notes on a page, pitches, and rhythms. Its more than just learning how to play an instrument or learning to sing well. Its an emotional learning experience, where not only are you physically involved, but you are emotionally involved to the point where your soul is touched. Music can express things in a way that words are inadequate of accomplishing. Music is a universal language of beauty. It brings people together, promises hope, peace and joy, and heals even the deepest of wounds. To me, music is something that speaks to me and impacts my life in very powerful ways and I...

Philosophy of Discipline and Classroom Management
I believe Classroom Management is the key component in any educational setting. I believe that if students are in a safe environment, then learning can take place. This doesn’t necessarily mean punishing behavior problems but rather a combination of setting the tone in a class, preventing behavior problems with interesting and engaging curriculums and effectively including all students in the classroom so that their needs are met. Having the right environment for all students to learn is my major goal of implementing good classroom...

My Nursing Philosophy
Before starting this assignment, I had not thought about my beliefs and principles as a nurse. I was aware that not all nurses have the same moral values, however I did not know specifically what I believed in. In my professional experiences, I have disagreed with decisions made by my colleagues, but I never considered how much of this can be related to values. According to Allnurses.com (2010), to develop an accurate philosophy of nursing, one must contemplate the qualities of the endeavors to which a nurse obligates their heart and soul to. After a lot of thought of the practices I follow and feel important, I have decided that my main nursing philosophies are to...

I define my philosophy of nursing within the three nursing domains of person, health, and environment. My goal is to communicate the importance of nursing as a knowledge-based career, depending not only on the nurse fulfilling her role but also on the patient’s compliance. A patient must learn to provide self-care at home in the same capacity as the nurse would provide care in the clinical setting. I discuss various subjects within nursing. I explain why I want to be a nurse, what I believe a nurse’s role is, the different domains of nursing, and where I believe nursing will be in the future. My philosophy demonstrates the interdependence of the nursing domains. You cannot fully...

Introduction to teaching 1301
My philosophy is that an educator is the most valuable resource our country has. Of all the jobs or careers in this world none of them would be possible without teachers. There are two main points to my philosophy, why teachers are important and who teachers are.
Teachers are very important in our society because we need them to provide our youth with the knowledge and social experiences they will need to improve their future and the future of the entire planet. Teachers are more than just people who relay information about a certain subject. Who teachers are, they are anyone and everyone. Teachers are grandmothers,...

Subjective Essay on Feminist Moral Theory
Do men and women have different morals perspective? I would venture to say that if asked, 9 out 10 people will answer, “yes”, for different reasons. A large number of feminist seem to believe so as well.
All beliefs are influenced by something, as children, the influence usually comes from our parents or whoever we are raised by. In saying that, morals are introduced to us as youth. As we evolve into young adults we encounter other influences, decide what makes most sense to us as individuals, and we start to develop our own morals/ethics. Our surroundings also play a large part in our moral approach. In the book Elements of Moral Philosophy it...

Religious Philosophy Article Critique
Axia College of University of Phoenix
I believe that yes, a person’s religious views should effect the way they treat others. In Christianity, we follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ, whom never sinned. He is still the Holiest person below God, but as God. Jesus knew that his purpose on earth was to do the will of his father and in doing so he was humble and compassionate to those that he healed, and at the same time he was also to the point and direct when he needed to be. He knew everything about everyone then just as he does now.
Jesus’ treatment of others shows people that they can be like that to and still care even if what...

In mathematics, there is a rule called the order of operations which instructs a student to solve certain steps first, before calculating others steps to arrive at an accurate solution to a mathematical expression. Similarly, society teaches an order of operations to life in that students are to first, matriculate through secondary education to attain foundational skills in support of man’s progression in society; second, enter into college to gain skills and knowledge to prepare for survival in society; third, graduate from college with...

It is important to be able to distinguish between a valid argument and a sound argument. A valid argument is one in which the
conclusion follows necessarily from the premises, such that if the premises are true, the conclusion must also be true. A sound
argument is one that is valid and the premisses are true (hence the conclusion is also true).
Here is an example of a valid deductive argument with true premises and a true conclusion (notice it is in the form of a syllogism):
Premiss 1: If the North won the Civil War, then the slaves were freed.
Premiss 2: The North won the Civil War.
Conclusion: Therefore, the slaves were freed.
But consider this argument:
Premiss 1: If the South...

In this essay I intend to write about the relationship between discipline and obedience from the Montessori perspective and how both these virtues are related in the development of the will.
The word discipline traditionally means the enforcement of rules and orders through force and punishment. “It is the practice of training people to obey rules and punishing them if they do not” (Wehmeier, 2005). It gives one the impression that discipline has to be enforced upon a person. Though it is a common saying ,”spare the rod and spoil the child “, does this really work? . Must children be caned and made to be silent and afraid of their teacher who moves at his/her pace expecting every child to...

Q) Critically assess the charges against and the defence given by Socrates in the apology?
The apology- a compilation of Socrates dialogue- is a rare collection of works done by Plato which we must treasure. This work gives us a distinct clear picture of what must have happened in Athens in the 5th century. Each deep mystifying dialogue, if interpreted properly, unveils realities leaving us either enlightened or puzzled.
Apprehending, such an abstruse matter, is indeed a tough task. So there may be a possibility of us misinterpreting him.
First we feel that Socrates has misinterpreted the message of 'Oracle'. He has only partially...

Sample Talent Management Philosophy
We achieve results through people. Therefore, our success hinges on our ability to effectively attract, engage, and reward talented people.
As a national organization, we compete for talent across sectors, organization sizes, and geographic areas. To be successful, we must attract high caliber people who can grow with us. Attracting a talented work force requires a strong employment brand. Therefore, we are committed to creating a culture of excellence which rewards performance, supports professional growth and development and values diversity. In addition, we seek to treat each person as an individual and to create...

One of the most debated topics across all Division I colleges nationwide is whether or not college athletes should be compensated for their impact on the revenue of the school from sports. Many schools call sports the “front porch” of their campuses, bringing in the bulk of their revenue, creating nearly free advertising, and attracting students that would otherwise not attend their school. A 2009 court case brought this issue to light when a former college player sued the NCAA and EA Games for using his name in a video game and not paying royalties. The case is headed towards an NCAA payout, and many athletes are joining the plaintiff side as allowed by courts, as their names were used as...

The Problem of Evil
November 17, 2014
One of the most prominent arguments against the existence of God today would be the problem of evil. Not only is it a problem for Christians, who want to provide a defense for their faith, but it is also a problem for Christians, who being faced with suffering and pain on account of evil, and without knowing the thoughts or intentions of God, wish to reconcile the two ideas together. In spite of Mackie’s Logical Argument of Evil proving, some would say, that it is not possible for both God and evil to exist, I believe that it is in fact possible that they exist simultaneously. My reason for believing so stems from...

Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems, such as those connected with reality, existence,knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language.
Importance of Philosophy
By studying philosophy, people can clarify what they believe, and they can be stimulated to think about ultimate questions. A person can study philosophers of the past to discover why they thought as they did and what value their thoughts may have in one's own life. There are people who simply enjoy reading the great philosophers, especially those who were also great writers.
Philosophy has had enormous influence on our everyday lives. The very language we speak uses classifications...

The Age of Baroque was between 1600 and 1750. “The term ‘baroque’ is associated with such features as ornateness, spatial grandeur, and theoretical flamboyance” (Fiero, 2011, p. 10). The Age of Baroque follows the Renaissance, which means ‘rebirth.’ Therefore, the Age of Baroque can be in comparison to the years of adolescence, where the events and cultural patterns are contradictory and full of emotional statement. This paper will highlight two examples of art, music, descriptions of architecture, philosophy, and literature of time as well as reflect how...

Using the definition of systematic theology given by B A Dermarest in Elwell's Evangelical Dictionary of Theology, explain how it relates to three other disciplines of theology: biblical theology, historical theology, and philosophical theology. Which of the four approaches is the most important in your current or future ministry context?
“Systematic theology thus begins with the totality of biblical revelation and the extra biblical truth, provisionally respects the development of doctrine in the church’s history, draws out the teachings of Scripture via sound grammatical, historical, and cultural exegesis, orders the result into a coherent whole where the interrelatedness of its parts...

Numerous individuals see the nursing profession as an honorable profession with high ethical standards. When a nurse graduates from college they take the Florence Nightingale Pledge, which implies they have a moral obligation to their patients (American Nurses Association, 2015). Nurses additionally take after a Code of Ethics that gives them a guide to what their obligations are in providing quality of care to patients and what their ethical commitments are (American Nurses Association, 2015). Despite the fact that there is a Code of Ethics, nurses still face numerous predicaments when...

Why was Socrates regarded as a man of virtue?
Why was Socrates regarded as a man of virtue?
Socrates: Man of Virtue (470-399 B.C.E.) Socrates proposed the theory of value in which there are two sorts of good: virtue and happiness. Both are unconditional goods. But happiness is a "self-generated" good in that it "derives its value strictly from its inherent properties;" whereas virtue is an "other-generated" good in that it derives its value from happiness, precisely from its conduciveness to happiness.
Virtue is an instinct in all humanity which can be aroused through self-examination. This universal truth is accessible to everyone who thinks and question. Socrates assumes that any...

The story begins with Captain Robert Walton hanging out in St. Petersburg, Russia, probably near the end of the 18th century. He's waiting around for a ride to the port of Archangel, where he's going to hire some hardy Russians to go sailing off to the North Pole. Unfortunately, the boat gets stuck in impassible ice hundreds of miles from land. Boring! With nothing else to do, he writes letters to his sister back in England. His main complaint? He wants a male friend to keep him company. (What about that ship full of sailors? No, he means a worthy companion.)
Soon, Walton's despair is interrupted by the sight of —a man! On the ice! Riding a dog-sled! The man boards the ship, and it seems as...

Socrates was one of the greatest Greek philosophers. His work was not to propose any specific knowledge or policy: it was to show how argument, debate, and discussion could help men to understand difficult issues. Most of the issues he dealt with were only political on the surface. Underneath, they were moral questions about how life should be lived. Such is the influence of Socrates that philosophers before him are called the Presocratic philosophers.
Socrates made enemies, three of whom brought charges against him. Socrates was tried for his life in 399 BC, found guilty, and put to death by drinking hemlock. The story of his trial and death is the subject of a tract by Plato which is...

Is Suicide Justifiable?
According to Albert Camus, suicide was considered the fundamental issue for moral philosophy. Unlike other philosophers who had written on the subject and tried to find sufficient reasons behind it to put off facing the consequences of the absurd, Camus was interested in not only accepting, but also embracing absurdity while renouncing suicide. His philosophy is profoundly evident in one of his non-fiction works, The Myth of Sisyphus, which illuminates the ethics of suicide. Through Camus’ thoughts and writings, the concept of absurdity has influenced authors around the world and has left a great impression on their writings, such as Henrik Ibsen’s play,...

Carvakas were ancient supporters of philosophy that assumed religious indifference and disbelief in contemporary philosophical theories, ideas and suggestions. The term Carvakas was used to denote the philosophical school of ‘Indian Materialism’.
In its most basic sense, “Indian Materialism” refers to the school of thought within Indian philosophy that rejects anything surrealistic or supernatural. It rejects the existence spiritual, non worldly entities such an soul or god and the after-life. Their primary philosophical import comes from science and naturalism, thus they rejects ethical systems that are grounded in super naturalistic beliefs. The good, for the Indian materialist, is...

In the Middle Ages the existence of God was unquestionable to theologians. They simply knew that He was not an invention of humans. Even so, many of them tried to prove that God was real.
The main conflict in the XI century was between two social groups: First of all, those who saw theology as a Bible commentary –and said that God was unreachable and a mystery-. Secondly, those who thought that rational analysis would be better -and were in favour of a more empirical and rational knowledge-.
Religion and philosophy were largely mixed. The task of philosophical theology was to clarify, determine and explain the existence of God. How were philosophers supposed to do...

Benjamin Franklin is one of the most beloved figures from American History. An elder statesman by the time of the American Revolution, Franklin was considered by many in both Europe and the American Colonies to be the epitome of what it meant to be an ‘American.’ He was considered a leading intellectual of the period as well as publisher, inventor, diplomat, and political philosopher. Franklin’s Autobiography was originally intended for his son, but was published publicly soon after his death in 1790. His story captures observations on colonial American life in Philadelphia as well as his views on literature, philosophy, and religion.

There are many problems that all teachers face in their classrooms daily whether they are new teachers or teachers with years of experience. It seems that educators should teach the lesson and then test them whether the children have learned the material or not. As Jiddu Krishnamurti once said, “Merely to stuff the child with a lot of information, making him pass examinations, is the most unintelligent form of education.” One that troubles teachers commonly is finding the right combination of techniques to effectively encourage students learning and participation in the classroom without simply throwing them information and expecting them to do wonderful on a...
