Western Civilization From Prehistory Term Paper

… The British, French, and other empires spread across the globe. And although neither country was in the strict sense "ruled by a monarch," the idea behind the concept remained the same. Territorial expansion was a means toward achieving glory and immortality.

Of course, things have changed in the more than two thousand years since Alexander's time. In recent centuries, the way of the warrior has lost something of its old luster, and would-be conquerors have found it increasingly essential to justify their ambitions by other means. So, in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries we have the concept of the White Man's burden, and the idea of the Western Powers bringing enlightenment and civilization to the benighted races of the Earth. Still more recently, however, even…. [read more]

Economy After 9-11 Term Paper

… American Economy After September 11, 2001

This paper will explore the issue of the American economy after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. Essentially, these attacks on American soil shattered an innocence that existed within the American population that we were untouchable.

Many will argue that the American economy was already suffering through a recession. Many will argue that the September 11, 2001 attacks on America did not hurt the economy but in a sense, rescued it from further damage. This paper's…. [read more]

Abigail Adams Lynne Withey Prefaces Term Paper

Before long, anti-British sentiments intensified and the revolutionary movement began. Abigail Adams, though not at the helm of the movement, could not avoid to become caught up in it. When, in 1774 John Adams was elected to be one of the members of the Constitutional Congress in Philadelphia, their lives would accelerate even more and a few years later the war broke out.

Le Mepris (Contempt) is a 1963 by Jean-Luc Godard based on the novel Il Disprezzo by Italian writer Alberto Moravia.

"The Trial of Thomas Builds-the-Fire"

In this story, Thomas Builds-the-Fire is on trial. A man in a BIA suit explains Thomas's "history," which is described as "a storytelling fetish accompanied by an extreme need to tell the truth. Dangerous" (93). However, we soon learn, this storytelling fetish has been silenced for two decades. Apparently, the strength of these stories is so powerful their mere existence is enough to cause worry. Thomas Builds-the-Fire may have been silent, but the stories remained alive within him.

His recent rumblings have begun to cause alarm, however, for "recently Thomas had begun to make small noises, form syllables that contained more emotion and meaning than entire sentences constructed by the BIA" (94). A single syllable spoken by Thomas Builds-the-Fire…. [read more]

Freudian Theories

Sigmund Freud was a physiologist, medical doctor, psychologist and became known as the father of psychoanalysis. He was a very influential thinker of the twentieth century. He initially worked very closing with Joseph Breuer, but later elaborated the theory that the mind is a complex energy-system on his own. He expressed and refined the concepts of the unconscious, of infantile sexuality, of repression, and proposed a tripartite account of the mind's structure. All of this was part of a radically new conceptual and therapeutic frame of reference for the understanding of human psychological development and the treatment of abnormal mental conditions. Freud's most important and frequently re-iterated claim, that with psychoanalysis he had invented a new science of the mind, remains the…. [read more]

Dream Content as Therapy: Ego vs. Repression Dissertation
