The Soul’s Power Every living thing has a soul, but not all the souls are the same. The soul in most of the religions and philosophical traditions is defined as the source of life in a living thing. The great philosopher Aristotle said that all of living things have souls but it differs as plants have nutritive souls , animals has sentient souls and humans have Logical souls. In Never Let Me Go Kazuo Ishiguro is showing how important the soul is, by showing how three clones whose lives are decided for them since the day they were born are totally different from the people they were copied from. As the moment they were cloned, somehow they had developed a souls in their bodies which made them totally different persons who think and have different personalities. Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go is ironically parallel to Plato’s Allegory of the cave as the clones learn the truth of their existence as “the mind is more real than the body”.

Effects of Being the Designated Driver Drinking and driving has been a problem in the United States for what seems like forever. According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving, driving while intoxicated is “the crime most frequently committed by a non-criminal,” (DWIfacts.net). It seems at least once a week there is a story in the news about someone leaving the bar drunk and never making it home. What if those people made a different choice? What if they chose, or chose to be a designated driver? Their stories would have ended much differently. There are hundreds of reasons to make the right decision and be the designated driver. For one, it is fun to be the voice of reason and the morning-after- story-teller. Also, it keeps the driver and

Life on the road means being completely dependent on nature. Many people travel outdoors because of the compelling beauty of nature. Travelers of the road do it for the thrill, and others for soul-seeking. Nature has a strong effect on humans, whether it’s positive or negative. For example, a travel can either end in acknowledging the beauty of nature or a fatal accident. So many famous writers and philosophers write about the value of nature; Henry David Thoreau, Jack London, Boris Pasternak, and many others. Life on the road has its advantages and disadvantages. This can be seen when Jon Krakauer wrote about Chris McCandless, a very famous traveler and an intelligent man, after his death in the book, Into the Wild. Chris McCandless was a

The first stanza introduces the situation in the poem: “Then - shuts the Door” (2), which is meant to show the way that the Soul shuts people out of her life. The Soul that is mentioned in the poem is interesting, because it suggests that the friendship that the “Soul” wants to achieve goes beyond that of the physical world. A “Society” (1) that is defined in this poem is the world society that encompasses all people. This is not what she wants, because it is selective. The first stanza is filled with meaning, like the “Door” in line 2 that separates the Soul’s world from the “Majority”. The majority defined in the poem is created from a feeling of hatred. The Soul is not happy with the community in her area, and chooses to create her own. The imagery of shutting the door from the rest of the world is solemn but also points out the frustration that the woman has towards the community that she feels she does not belong. This dilemma is similar to that of Emily in William Faulkner’s “A

What is a soul? The spiritual or immaterial part of a human being or animal regarded as immortal. Many Philosophers studied the soul in several ways in order to get the point of what is the soul.

The Philosopher Aristotle came to the conclusion that the soul is the first grade of actuality of a natural organized body. He uses it in the axe and eye as examples but yes it might be confusing but at the end it will make sense in what he means.
