human condition when one compares characters in the stories of different writers. Each writer's story indicates a perception of the human condition that is acted out by the story's characters. One interesting study may be to compare the character of Miss Emily Grierson from "A Rose for Emily" by illiam Faulkner with the character of Elisa Allen in "The Chrysanthemums" by John Steinbeck. Through the author's description of the characters, the world around them, and their reactions, the reader can learn a lot about the individuals, and even more so when they are compared to one another. Miss Emily Grierson and Elisa Allen's very different lifestyles create in each of them a similar perception about the world they live in, but they each respond to their perception of life in very different ways.
It would first be prudent to take a look at the differing lifestyles of the two protagonists,….
The world would now be required to accept socialism, Leninism, and eventually Stalinism, as part of the European landscape.
With the defeat of Germany, Austro-Hungary, and the Ottoman Empire; the shift in the balance of power moved toward the only major participant not devastated on its own soil by war -- the United States. The U.S. grew in economic power after Versailles, assisting not only its former allies in rebuilding, but also a crucial and profitable effort to help finance Germany's rebuilding and aid the new Weimar epublic. However, because of the failure of the war to achieve the ideals of peace and unity promised by President Woodrow Wilson, America shifted to an isolationist foreign policy -- it was deemed acceptable to be economically aggressive, but politically neutral. Until the stock market crash of 1929 and resultant Depression, the U.S. enjoyed a decade of relative prosperity and limelight due to….

It is simply human nature. These pigs will be the ones attempting to gain all of the power and control the rest of the population. The image of the humans and the pigs being indistinguishable points to the frailty of the human condition and it declares that this condition cannot be "fixed" and it will lead to humanity's downfall in one way or another. Power and greed only make people more power hungry and greedy. There can be no equals in this kind of society because people, regardless of we like it or not, are simply not equal. There will always be those with more and there will always be those with less. Additionally, there will always be those that want to control everything and those who allow that control to occur.

oth The Great Work by Thomas erry and Sacred Energies by Daniel Maguire suggest ways in which human beings can change the destructive path they are on. The two works take a cosmological approach to the problem, the former focusing on the earth as sacred, while the latter uses religion as a possible remedy to the situation.
The three major themes upon which The Great Work is based, comprise the current situation of the human community, how this came to be, and the possible future of the human community. erry blames Western science and religion for the state of the world today. The reason for this is that science and religion have become separate in human consciousness, rather than integrative forces. Religion is therefore no longer seen as either a fundamental or concrete force on which to base life. In the same way humanity has become separate from every….
The human condition is a very wide topic that attracted considerable attention and evaluation from different perspectives. Some of the major perspectives that have dominated evaluation of the human condition include religion, history, literature, philosophy, art, psychology, anthropology, and biology. The use of these different perspectives to examine and help understand the human condition is attributable to the fact that human beings are diverse. In essence, a suitable understanding of the human condition requires an exploration of the diversity of a human being.
The human condition is basically defined as the major attributes, events, and circumstances that generate the essentials of human existence. Some of these essentials include birth, growth and development, mortality, and emotionality. However, there have been numerous difficulties over the years to identify a suitable and actual definition of the human condition because of the contradiction of the human condition itself (World Transformation Movement par, 4). The difficulties….
Despondent State of Human Condition in Funny by Anna Kamienska and I Am a Cat by Natsume Soseki
In the world of literature, humans predominate as characters in portraying social realities in the world. This is a common practice among writers, since human experience is best illustrated through the point-of-view of a human; and with every social experience, a subjective interpretation of this experience yields a particular reality that is unique and distinct for an individual. In effect, this process becomes the core of literature -- the documentation of social experiences as interpreted by the subjective writer. However, writers of literature are not confined to human subjects alone in conveying the harmony and conflict that exists between individual and society, as well as human society and the environment. In Anna Kamienska's Funny and Natsume Soseki's I Am a Cat, the writers used the natural environment, in particular, animals, in portraying….

Islam and Confucianism
In spite of the fact that the Chinese are typically known to be restrictive when it comes to foreign influences affecting their culture, there were a series of episodes through time requiring the nation to accept that it was ethnically diverse and that it was necessary for it to experience reform through adopting elements from other cultures. Through bringing together Confucianism and Islam individuals were able to address the topic of life from two perspectives. Confucianism primarily deals with the material segment of life, particularly relating to the human character. In contrast, Islam deals with the spiritual….

Globus pallidusinterna (GPI) of the patient was treated through DBS. The internal pulse generators (IPG) helped stimulate the inner cognition area of patient's brain. Since the study employed Yale Global Tic Severity Scale (YGTSS) for assessing the results after intervention, lateral assessment indicated that 84%improvement in YGTSS was observed by the researchers. Thus, DBS as an effective intervention treatment is corroborated by two results of two independent research studies.

Technology and the Human Condition
Does Technology Interfere with the Human Condition
Many people see technology as the saving grace of humanity, as a way to improve the human condition. However, as technology becomes more and more integrated into our daily lives, many are beginning to see technology more as a burden to humanity than as its savior. Instead of bringing people together, many argue that technology has done more to keep people apart and isolated and point to the fact that technology has come to replace human interaction in many aspects of life. In his story "Harrison Bergeron," Kurt Vonnegut creates a dystopian future where technology is used to enforce equality, with the result being that the warmth and caring of human interaction is replaced with isolation and cold callousness. Likewise, Jonah Lehrer's essay, titled "e Robots," reviews Sherry Turkle's new book which deals with her take on technology and its….

consequences of the human condition is the abusive manner in which people can treat each other, sometimes without even consciously realizing it. Although even otherwise-loving and happy couples who appear to "have it all" may experience emotionally abusive behaviors from time to time, when these patterns of behaviors persist, they can work an enormous toll on their victims as well as their perpetrators. Unfortunately, studies have shown time and again that emotional abuse tends to perpetuate itself from one generation to the next, making the need for timely and effective interventions essential. The implications of emotional abuse are profound and include both social as well as economic costs that demand more attention from the healthcare community to break the vicious cycle of intergenerational emotional abuse. To this end, the reason for writing this study included identifying current approaches and best practices for emotionally abusive situations.

Although the author does not provide any credentials in this article, a search of the Internet revealed that she is a professor at North Georgia College and State University in Georgia. The author provides a narrative companion to Kingsolver' novel, The Poisonwood Bible, and describes the book in terms of its departure from traditional social views as well as traditional literary forms. Author uses five character-narrators to describe a picture of everyday life in the fictional village in a Congolese village to highlight the marginalization of women in various settings using a narrative approach.

The authors present a retrospective interview assessment of childhood psychological abuse as an extension to the Childhood Experience of Care and Abuse (CECA) instrument. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the relationship of emotional abuse in childhood to other adverse childhood experiences and to major depression and suicidal behavior in adult life using a sample of 204 London, UK women. The authors conclude that, "Maternal poor psychosocial functioning needs to be identified as a factor requiring intervention in order to stem escalation of risk across generations" (258).
The human condition is one of suffering and redemption. One who does not suffer is not human. Death and the withering away of youth and vitality explicitly demonstrates the entropic nature of existence. This situation is problematic for the rationale mind. No universally accepted system of navigating the death sentence, known has human existence, has sufficiently explained the quandary. Blaise Pascal, the renowned 17th century mathematician and philosopher, in his unfinished and fragmented collection of thoughts gathered in his "Pensees" presented a basic and mathematically-based solution to living a life according to greater purpose.
Within the Pensees, Pascal introduced mathematical proofs to the utility in accepting and living by a religious and hierarchal system. This idea is commonly referred to as Pascal's gamble. The argument states that it is better to believe and act accordingly to a dogmatic understanding of God due to the great benefits of the choice. Pascal….
The human condition requires us to consume other living or inanimate objects in order to continue with our lives. This basic and simple habit of eating begins as a newborn as we eat what our parents feed us. The purpose of this essay is illustrate the phrase " you are what you eat," and look at the philosophical meanings of eating and consuming foods. This essay will explore different aspects of food consumption, the state of human being and how these ideas relate to each other and literally feed off one another.
Before examining the phrase in depth, it is necessary to define the terms within the phrase in order to give some sort of scope or boundary to fit in this conversation. In order to know what you are, it is required to take a step back and look at what "isness" is. Being appears almost impossible to….
Creative Problem Solving
The human condition appears to be creative in nature. Porter (2010) suggested that "ideas appear to arise by chance only when people are actually looking for them. It does not happen to people who are not curious or inquiring or who are not engaged in a hard search for opportunities, possibilities, answers or inventions, " (p.5). The purpose of this paper is to explain a created problem using the Creative Problem Solving Process (CPS). Specifically, this paper will focus on refining the solutions that were presented in an earlier essay.

On the other hand there is another side to the vision of human life. There is the experience of human joy and happiness that also has to be taken into account. We find this side in works that resonate with color, joy conviviality and friendship. In this exhibition works by Renoir and Picasso have been selected to show this side of the human condition. In this context the famous painting by Renoir entitled, the Luncheon of the Boating Party portrays a very different sense of the human condition compared to that of Bacon. We also this sense of the gentleness and beauty of human life in Picasso's the Bathers.
Another artist who has much to say about the human condition is Giacometti. This famous sculptor portrays human being in terms existential searching and mystery. His sculptures refuse to comment directly on the human condition but leave us with a sense of….
Human Factors in Aviation
rief Historical ackground
The Airline Industry has a history that dates back to 1903 when the Wright brothers made their first successful flight in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. Initially the public did not take the idea of the airplane travel favorably. ut this event marked the beginning of the Airline Industry as more and more inputs were given by people such as Charles Lindbergh who successfully completed a solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean in 1927 and created massive interest in flying with the general public.
The concern for human factor involvement in aviation started as soon as the interest of general public was roused in it. The initial concern was for the safety of people daring to fly the aircraft as accidents were reported due to a flaw in the design or working of the plane. A pilot task was to juggle with the complexity of design of….
