The Will To Power
The Will To Power
the Will to Power In the Will to Power, Nietzsche claims: The will to power interprets (-it is a question of interpretation when an organ is constructed): it defines limits, determines degrees, variations of power. Mere variations of power could not feel themselves to be such: there must be present something that wants to grow and interprets the value of whatever else wants to grow. Equal in that- In fact, interpretation is itself a means of becoming master of something. (The organic process co
Delusional Disorder Treatments
Delusional Disorder Treatments
Delusional Disorder Treatments This disorder is characterized by the presence of non-bizarre delusions, which have persisted for a least one-month. Non-bizarre delusions typically are beliefs of something occurring in a person's life, which is not out of the realm of possibility. For example, the person may believe their significant other is cheating on them, that someone close to them is about to die, a friend is really a government agent, etc. All of these situations could be true or possible
Piaget Theory Of Cognitive Developement
Piaget Theory Of Cognitive Developement
Piaget Theory Of Cognitive Developement There are two classical theories of cognitive development. The one that I will focus on is Piaget's theory of cognitive development. Jean Piaget, a Swiss, educated, mollusk biologist lived from 1896 to 1980. He hypothesized that learning is a physical, biological function of dealing with successfully with the environment. (Phillips, 1998) This is the basis for his theory. Looking at Piaget's theory of cognitive development in more detail we find that he ba

Berkeley's Theory of Immaterialism As man progressed through the various stages of evolution, it is assumed that at a certain point he began to ponder the world around him. Of course, these first attempts fell short of being scholarly, probably consisting of a few grunts and snorts at best. As time passed on, though, these ideas persisted and were eventually tackled by the more intellectual, so-called philosophers. Thus, excavation of the external world began.

Object-Oriented Database Management Systems
Object-Oriented Database Management Systems The construction of Object-Oriented Database Management Systems started in the middle 80's, at a prototype building level, and at the beginning of the 90's the first commercial systems appeared. The interest for the development of such systems stems from the need to cover the modeling deficiencies of their predecessors, that is the relational database management systems. They were intended to be used by applications that have to handle big and complex

Ricardo`s Theory Of Value
Ricardo`s Theory Of Value
Ricardo`s Theory Of Value One of the enduring questions of economics is Where do profits come from? One of the ways in which economic philosophers have tried to answer it is by first answering the question of value. At the center of most economic paradigms is a Theory of Value. The classical political economists found value to be determined in production; since most of the cost of production could be reduced to labour, this approach was refined into The Labour Theory of Value. Neoclassical eco

Cathedral By Raymond Carvers For now we see through a glass darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then I shall know even as I am known (1 Corinthians 13). The narrator of Raymond Carver's Cathedral is a man living a life of monotony, continuously feeding the cold and bigoted mind that we witness for the first part of the story. The process of guiding Robert through the drawing of the cathedral, removes the narrator from that dark looking glass and initiates a tranformation

Descartes On God Upon cursory examination, one might assume that Rene Descartes is anon-believer in the existence of a heavenly being, a God that presides over humans and gives us faith. However, this is simply not the case ? Descartes is simply trying to destroy all of the uncertainties that have come about by the attempted scientific explanations of such a supreme being. For Rene Descartes and all of the other believers in the world, the existence of God provides a convenient answer to unex

Psychology: Depth Of Processing And The Self Reference Effect Introduction There have been many experiments done on depth of processing and the self reference effect. The Depth of Processing model of memory maintains that how deep something is encoded into a person's memory depends on using certain types of processing. This relates to the self reference effect because it is believed that people have the tendency to remember something better when they can relate it to themselves. People who can p

Perception has never been random, since the beginning of time it has been human nature to judge others before really getting a chance to know them. People immediately cast others into stereotypes in every situation: they form a schema, or an organized set of thoughts about something containing properties and uses. These schemas effect the way people carry themselves around others. Schemas are usually formed with in

Michael Milken Pleaded Guilty To A Number Of What Are Generally Called
Michael Milken pleaded guilty to a number of what are generally called white-collar crimes ? as opposed to blue-collar crimes or those Godfather-type underground activities known as organized crime. But on examination, much of Milken's white-collar work bears a startling resemblance to the methods of organized crime in schematic if not case by case. Milken was no capo, but he certainly applied the general mind set of the gangster to finance. And in doing so, he created a vastly more power

A Risk Neutral Framework For The Pricing Of Credit Derivatives 1. INTRODUCTION Considerable research effort has gone into Credit Derivatives since the early 1990's. The roots of credit derivatives can be traced back to the notion that the credit risk of a firm can be captured by the credit rating ascribed to it. This premise is also the cornerstone of loan pricing and credit risk management models the world over, including J.P. Morgan's CreditMetricsTM. Empirical research enables the predictabil

In this formation, Gill's argument is essentially circular in its reliance o

Upon it's publication, Goldhagen's thesis came under much scrutiny by his academic peers. Goldhagen's argument is that the usual historical ex

He moved back to Switzerland to watch and observe children. Piaget did not think of children as being wrong, he thought of them as thinking in a
