Asking For Plato's Forgiveness. Floyer Sydenham: A Platonic Visionary Of 18th-Century Britain, Kyriakos N. Demetriou 2013 University of Cyprus

Asking For Plato's Forgiveness. Floyer Sydenham: A Platonic Visionary Of 18th-Century Britain, Kyriakos N. Demetriou

Kyriakos N. Demetriou

Floyer Sydenham (1710–1787), the eminent British Platonist, has been unduly neglected in the interpretative historiography of the modern Platonic tradition. Amid a climate of indifference, he set out to offer the first complete English translation of the Platonic dialogues, begging for subscriptions that never materialized. He died in debtors’ prison on April 1, 1787. Between 1759 and 1780 he managed to translate nine dialogues incorporating a large number of explanatory notes and linguistic emendations to the existing texts. Set in the context of the intellectual and discursive tradition of the era, Sydenham’s Platonism expanded on Lord Shaftesbury’s ...

Why I Am Not A Materialist, John Cramer Dr. 2013 Oglethorpe University

Why I Am Not A Materialist, John Cramer Dr.

Oglethorpe Journal of Undergraduate Research

Materialism is a world view that insists the world is nothing but matter. My purpose here is to show it is not a viable world view. Its monism creates severe difficulties for it, centered on the nature of the human mind and the truth of beliefs. Nor is it fit for human consumption because it denies human uniqueness and denigrates human needs.


Asclepios, M.D.? The Ancient Greeks And Integrative Medicine, Anna T. Wiley 2013 Xavier University, Cincinnati, OH

Asclepios, M.D.? The Ancient Greeks And Integrative Medicine, Anna T. Wiley

Honors Bachelor of Arts

The healing at the Sanctuaries of Asclepios in antiquity was thought to occur due to divine intervention, so it is often assumed in modernity that any healing which took place was product of ancient spirituality or had no legitimate medical foundation. The practices in the temples are cloudy, with Pausanias, Aristophanes, Aelius Aristides, steles, and votive offerings providing the bulk of the evidence. Due to the limited evidence available of what occurred in these sanctuaries, evidence of healing at Asclepieia is analyzed through a modern Integrative Medicine lens, specifically showing how techniques similar to optimal healing environments, hypnosis, and imagery ...


The Psychopathology Of Everyday Athens: Euripides On The Freudian Couch, Brendan C. Chisholm 2013 Xavier University - Cincinnati

The Psychopathology Of Everyday Athens: Euripides On The Freudian Couch, Brendan C. Chisholm

Honors Bachelor of Arts

Freud’s theories suggest that authors often describe aspects of their own self-image, or their interpretation of the people around them, in individual characters or themes. Using this idea, I will perform a psychological study of characters and themes in four of Euripides’ plays, the Medea, Bacchae, Hecuba, and Trojan Women, then apply Freud’s Dream Work theory to conclusions about the plays in an effort to open a window into the psychology of Euripides himself.

Ovid's Insight Into The Minds Of Abandoned Women, Rachel A. Bier 2013 Xavier University - Cincinnati

Ovid's Insight Into The Minds Of Abandoned Women, Rachel A. Bier

Honors Bachelor of Arts

Mythical heroines, such as Penelope of the Odyssey, often took minor roles in literature, ones in which their characters' complexities were not addressed. Ovid revived the heroines of tradition and gave them voices which expressed realistic feelings and thoughts in his Heriodes. In these fictional letters to absent lovers, Ovid creates realistic characters, each of whom reacts to her abandonment with an insightful feminine voice. By examining the heriones' voice and the ways in which the Heriodes differs from the literary tradition, and by considering the effects of the epistolary genre on the characters' voices, I argue that Ovid managed ...


“Human Relations Movement In View Of Interpersonal Relations With Emphasis On Mayo’S Work”, Ratnesh Dwivedi 2013 India Today Group

“Human Relations Movement In View Of Interpersonal Relations With Emphasis On Mayo’S Work”, Ratnesh Dwivedi

Ratnesh Dwivedi

Human relations movement refers to the researchers of organizational development who study the behavior of people in groups, in particular workplace groups. It originated in the 1930s' Hawthorne studies, which examined the effects of social relations, motivation and employee satisfaction on factory productivity. The movement viewed workers in terms of their psychology and fit with companies, rather than as interchangeable parts, and it resulted in the creation of the discipline of human resource management. An interpersonal relationship is an association between two or more people that may range in duration from brief to enduring. This association may be based on ...


Augustine And John Paul Ii On The Goods Of Marriage: Proles, Fides, Et Sacramentum, Thomas Richard Finke 2013 Xavier University, Cincinnati, OH

Augustine And John Paul Ii On The Goods Of Marriage: Proles, Fides, Et Sacramentum, Thomas Richard Finke

Honors Bachelor of Arts

As an example of the way in which the Church consistently presents her teachings on marriage, I intend to demonstrate the consistency between the writings of St. Augustine and John Paul II. Though they write in very different times socially and philosophically, their presentations on the good of marriage remain consistent in their conclusions. The framework for this presentation will be the three goods of marriage as defined by Augustine: procreation, fidelity, and the sacrament. Augustine defined these goods in his De bono coniugali, and John Paul II contains them in his writings: Familiaris Consortio, Mulieris Dignitatem, Love and Responsibility ...

The Exploration Of Nationalism In The Works Of Livy And Jacques-Louis David, Kelly M. Bunting 2013 Xavier University - Cincinnati

The Exploration Of Nationalism In The Works Of Livy And Jacques-Louis David, Kelly M. Bunting

Honors Bachelor of Arts

The concept of nationalism is one that occupies a prevalent position in many ancient and modern works. Manifestations of such “valuation of the nation-state above all else” in art is often a natural consequence of a patriotic artist’s work. Art provides on opportunity for the artist to express feelings, to educate their audience, and to further their own political agendas. Two such artists that took advantage of the widespread capabilities and audience of art are Titus Livius and Jacques-Louis David. These men recognized the ability of art to inspire passion and to reach the masses, and they used it ...


To The Jew First: A Socio-Historical And Biblical-Theological Analysis Of The Pauline Teaching Of `Election' In Light Of Second Temple Jewish Patterns Of Thought, Anthony Thornhill 2012 Liberty University

To The Jew First: A Socio-Historical And Biblical-Theological Analysis Of The Pauline Teaching Of `Election' In Light Of Second Temple Jewish Patterns Of Thought, Anthony Thornhill

A. Chadwick Thornhill

Paul's "doctrine" of election has remained a controversial and enigmatic topic for centuries. Few studies, however, have approached Paul's doctrine through the context of Second Temple Judaism. This study examines Paul's view of election through the lens of Second Temple Jewish texts written prior to 70 CE. In doing so, it is argued that the best framework through which to view Paul's discussion of election is through a primarily corporate model of election. While such a model is rooted in Judaism, Paul departs from his Jewish contemporaries in arguing that the locus of election is in ...

International Terrorism And Television Channels:Operation And Regulation Of Tv News Channel During Coverage Of Terrorism, Ratnesh Dwivedi Mr

Ratnesh Dwivedi

The concept of globalization or internationalization of certain wars, which were result of terrorist activities worldwide , as well as the high attention of terrorism coverage broadcast worldwide might open up better opportunities to journalists – particularly to those who work in democratic countries like U.S.A and India – to improve their coverage. The context is the key: the context of the operation methodology, follow of guidelines of regulatory bodies,and of the journalistic culture and of the global environment. It is very important how media presents consequences of terrorist acts, how information is transmitted to public. Television and press have ...
