- Throughout history there have been arguments about anything and everything that is disagreeable. People innately have there own and often different opinions.

- Practical reasoning has been much discussed by philosophers, and it is catalogued under Moral Philosophy. For Aristotle?s moral philosophy, as it appears in his document now called the Nicomachean ethics, reflects his teleological (goal-oriented) metaphyics.
- These values are based entirely on one concept: jen , which is best translated as “humaneness,” but can also mean “humanity,” “benevolence,” “goodness,” or “virtue.” This humaneness is a relatively strange concept to Western eyes, because it is not primarily a practicable virtue.
- David Hume wrote much about the subject of religion, much of it negative. In this paper we shall attempt to follow Hume’s arguments against Deism as Someone knowable from the wake He allegedly makes as He passes. This kind of Deism he lays to rest.

Surrounding these issues we can find differing opinions, and positions in how people feel about such topics in our community.
- The Hungry Soul: Eating and the Perfecting of Human Nature, by Leon Kass takes a unique view of examining the body and soul by focusing on the eating habits of human beings. He uses this in order to distinguish humans from animals and the divine element (God).
- I’m often bored and impatient with poems by young poets who, before learning how to relate to language, to make a poem that has structure, has music, has some kind of autonomy, launch out into confessional poems.
- Is man naturally good or is he evil? This question has not only been pondered by countless philosophers, but also by religious leaders around the world. Most often a single religious faith believes in either one or the other, and often these beliefs tend to create a certain world-view which dictates much of the faith.

The flame of reason and human endeavor, which had all but burnt out over the previous one thousand years, was rekindled, and a great many people became inspired with a renewed passion for the pursuit of knowledge.
- “How can they meet us face to face till we have faces?” Each person harbors a face veiled by the imperfections brought to us through a shallow self-concept. Each instance in a life is filtered through a lens of personal interpretation, which makes each work of every hand and each treasure of every heart different.
- Everyday children are born; millions of new lives start each day, throughout the world. The growth and the development of these children, has been a topic of confusion and debate for years. Many psychologists are argued over what factors make up the person we are, whether they are biological or environmental.
