Ambrose Bierce: Animal Characteristics
[ send me this paper ]
8 pages in length. Ambrose Bierce maintained that humanity mirrored many of the same characteristics as animals, stating that "in each human heart there is a tiger, a pig, an ass, and a nightingale. Diversity of characters is due to their unequal activity." It can easily be argued that Bierce's perception is quite accurate in that all of mankind has absorbed a great deal of idiosyncratic tendencies reflective of animal behavior. For example, as is mentioned in his quote, the human heart exhibits a vast array of illustrative attributes: the tiger's ferocity and independence; the pig's greed; the ass's stupidity; and the nightingale's delicacy and benevolence. Indeed, finding all of these qualities within a single individual is considerably more difficult than recognizing one or two; however, most of humanity displays a combination of all such animal characteristics at some point throughout life. The writer discusses these traits as they relate to Iago and Desdemona from Othello, Mustafa Sa'eed from Tayeb Salih's Season Of Migration, and Reginald Nwankwo and Gladys from Girls at War by Chinua Achebe. No additional sources cited.

Aristotle and the Good Stuff
[ send me this paper ]
(7 pp) One of the things, that seems to happen whenever we think of philosophy, is this perverse mental block that flings itself into the air, calling something similar to, "Danger! Will Robinson. Danger! Danger!" Many of us get stuck there - take the warning and run the opposite direction. Take a deep breath, tell yourself, that thinking is not harmful to your heath and give this Greek guy a chance. This discussion will focus on some of the "good stuff:" the ideas of reason, virtue, and happiness as defined by Aristotle.
