USA and China Term Paper

… ¶ … United States and China

The John King Fairbank book - the United States and China: Fourth Edition Enlarged - is a very well written book that covers everything about the history of China (religious, political, social) that an alert reader would want to know.

New Theory -- the Black Research Paper

… Evolution assumes that organisms are driven towards greater complexity -- however, looking at many microbes, we now find that some trend towards decreasing complexity and have a net loss of complexity relative to their ancestors -- also based on environmental pressures (Morris,, 2012). The entire basis of this new theory comes from literally thousands of articles and research ranging from anthropological/sociological interpretations of Darwinism to numerous scientific studies on the topic (Lane, 2010). Other theoretical interpretations that help propel The Black Queen use the idea that rather than evolution being a smooth and linear process, it happens in quick bursts, then is relative stable for a time to allow the organism to adapt to the changes, with a repeat in the cycle. These bursts…. [read more]

Organic Evolution Essay

… Organic Evolution

Please discuss the pre-biotic conditions on planet earth. Why did it take approximately one half billion years before the earliest bacteria-like life evolved? Why did the formation of oxygen by photosynthesizers make such a difference on the planet? Specifically, why does it appear that the aerobic metabolic pathway is a mirror image of the photosynthetic pathway? What would have happened to this system if oxygen had been present on earth 4 billion years ago?

Scientists believe that about 5 million years ago, the Solar System was filled with a plethora of hot gases and dust, swirling around a hot core. They think that once the core approached about 1 million degrees, the physics and chemical properties caused the gases to coalesce, forming the…. [read more]

Wealth of Nations Book Report

… Wealth of Nations

Adam Smith, whose Wealth of Nations was published in 1776, was the father of modern economics and capitalism. He argued that the free operation of market forces was the best recipe for a flourishing and growing economy. If everyone is as free as possible to pursue his or her own self-interest, he or she will be led by an "invisible hand" to promote the welfare of society as a whole.

There are many reasons why self-interest is the most effective technique of increasing wealth in society. Within a community/society/countries, there are two main assemblies, the government and the citizens. Both assemblies play an important role in the market place, the government is there to regulate any conflicts and minimize problems and bring…. [read more]

Determinism Certain Controversies Continue to Exist Essay

… Determinism

Certain controversies continue to exist within the scholastic arenas, such as nature vs. nurture and, more recently, global warming. Another one of these ongoing debates concerns determinism, or what "determines" or drives a nation to develop in a certain way. Does a society move in a specific direction because of cultural impetus? Or does it evolve, as Marx believed, from an economic standpoint? From the economic determinism side, it is argued that production is the primary motivator for all of social, political and cultural life and even the individual's social consciousness is determined by the economic structure. Allen et al. (2007) surveyed the cultural values of select East Asian and Pacific Island nations in 1982 and then again in 2002 and found, more practically,…. [read more]

Anthropological Thought Essay

… Spencer, Herbert. 1860. The Social Organization. The Westminster Review. In Anthropological Theory: An Introductory Theory. Fourth Edition. R. McGee and Richard Warms. McGraw Hill.

The purpose of Spencer's article is to introduce the concept that social structure is similar to a living organism. It is an attempt to explain how the individual fits into society as well as how society is a result of the individual components within it. The theory presents the development of society using a living organism as an analogy to help explain the key concept.

According to Khayatt (1994), it is quite normal for LGBT students to experience harassment, isolation from their social group, the feeling of marginalization, and an inability to speak openly about their sexual/gender orientation.

Social Inequality in India: the "Caste System."

Social inequality is a social aspect that is found in every nation and country in the world.

Mind and Body Term Paper

… Both issues are of contemporary significance, however, despite the contrast between Gibson's punchy prose, and Russell's more lyrical and theological style of narration.

However, both authors have a largely negative view of physical interference. Case's desire to live in a manipulated world of virtual reality seems to bring him little happiness, and when cut off from his supply he is like a junky deprived of a potent drug 'fix.' The Jesuit's priestly withholding of his physical self from humanity, his aspiration to find another world outside of his own in a kind of Godlike hubris, and finally his manipulation of the physical environment of the Runa seems to show the dim view Russell takes of playing God with the natural essence of the world. The…. [read more]
