In order to get a better understanding of what is needed in the present time, we must first learn and understand how and why people of the western culture helped others through human
Do you think it would be easier for you if someone could help you with a difficult problem? Through the dilemma tales “Wondrous Powers: Mirrors, Sandals, and a Medicine Bag”, readers can learn that knowing how to cooperate with one another is an important class during our lifetime. Although many people would say if one people has strong skills or abilities to solve any problem by himself, this people then does not need to cooperate with others, this opinion is one-sided. Cooperate with others can allow us to be more clever and to finish many jobs that are hard to do.
In everyday life people experience difficulties and problems that they feel they are not able to deal with on their own and need help with. The help that people receive to overcome their problems can be in many different forms. People may receive help in an informal way, such as having a chat to a close friend or relative, who can offer support and advice or they may seek help in a more formal capacity from various helping professionals, such as counsellors, social workers, psychiatrists, doctors, etc. For all of these professionals it is their
Peter Paul Rubens’ painting, Prometheus Bound, is a large oil painting on canvas currently on display at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The painting is approximately sized at eight by seven feet and portrays the Greek Titan Prometheus chained to a cliff as his liver is eaten by an eagle. Rubens captures and allows the viewer to experience the most dramatic and gruesome moment of the myth, when the majestic bird attacks the Titan, by implementing the tenebrism technique, a unique composition and perspective, and symbolism.
“I think. I am. I will.” A quote by Ayn Rand that is similar to Rene Descartes quote, “I think therefore I am.” This quote tells society that Prometheus can do anything by himself. He does not need the “we” of society to complete a task. Prometheus can think independently and wants to express himself as one individual. “I will,” illustrates that he will and can do anything. Prometheus believes, just as Rene Descartes does, that if he can think by himself, he is able to live by himself. As he is alone he is thinking by himself, therefore he is alive and able to express himself as he truly is.
“…We must always honor the wishes of others before our own. We will make the way smooth by restraining emotion . . . To try to meet one’s own needs in spite of the wishes of others is to be “wagamama”—selfish and inconsiderate . . . It is such a tangle trying to decipher the needs and intents of others…”
Nobody really can get through life without help, eventually along the way there is something thrown our way that we cannot deal with alone. When you look back at one of the most confusing and unfair times in the world's history, the Holocaust, you can see that this was true for all of the families affected. George Gottlieb, Krystyna, and Elie Wiesel all needed help from upstanders on their road to surviving the Holocaust,and without it survival would have been nearly impossible, these are three different cases that all have one glowing similarity, that being the contributions of others to help them fight the persecution, and from all of these testimonies we can draw something that should be applied today.
Even though not everyone is perfect, we still can help them other come there problems
The leaders of Prometheus’ past community only enforced their ways of control and order, never truly caring for all of the brothers as they often described was the goal of their system. The leaders of the community were corrupt and only seeking their own benefit, which Prometheus saw in his opinion of the society and used to reinforce his view of the good of his actions. Corrupt leaders call for rebellion, as seen many
For example, in Mr. Saeed’s said in the Interview with Muhammad Saeed that, “if the situation is too hard for you to handle than always ask for help because there will always be a person or people who can help you” (Saeed). At first, I too felt as if I was the only one who can’t handle such situations but it’s a very common problem. I am very grateful that I attempted to open up and have such great parents to support me in order for me to
In the world, it is so easy to walk past an individual that is in distress without even knowing that there is something wrong. People notice something and expect the individual in front of or behind them to assist the distressed, and it happens more than often. For example, driving past an individual that is stranded on the side of the road is so simple. It is much easier to drive past than assist, especially when driving on a city street. Many people think about helping, and want to help, but they just do not.
In the play Prometheus Bound, there were many powerful characters that played a huge role in the rise of Prometheus; there is one character alone that is worth talking about. In the play, Zeus is a relatively new God in Greece. He recently became the God of Olympus. Many of the Greeks come to find out what type of God he will be. When situations arise throughout the play, Zeus shows his ruler ways in not such a good light. He is mostly described in the play to be a cruel, vengeful, and dictatorial God. Even in tough situations, Zeus still acted in a vengeful manner. A great example of his vengeance towards Prometheus, he ordered Hephaesteus to chain Prometheus to a cliff, in hope he will die, but Prometheus is a Titian, therefore he cannot die. This part in particular stood out when reading the play; Zeus shows his cruel, vengeful, and dictatorial
Once upon a time, a little boy named Joseph needed to know what happened to all the necessary water for the village. Joseph was only 8 years old and was unsure about many problems in his world around him. Prometheus thought of mankind with such sympathy that he wanted to provide water for the village. However, he had a brother, Epimetheus. Zeus, the king of all gods, extended his wrath to not just Epimetheus, but everyone that was living in the village. Zeus was angry because Epimetheus told Prometheus to provide water for the village.
To begin with, problems give people a chance to make things right. For instance, two angry friends. A person has a chance to apologize and resolve the problem. Furthermore, when a person hurt someone else’s feelings. They are able to kindly lift the other’s spirits by apologizing and becoming wonderful friends.
In the play Prometheus Bound, the gods are directly involved as characters and are portrayed as extremely stubborn. Prometheus, a titan and god of foresight, is being punished for aiding the humans who Zeus would like to replace with a new master race. As a relatively new leader of the gods, Zeus has the power to punish Prometheus in anyway he wants even though Prometheus is a god himself. Zeus decides to bind Prometheus to a rock, hence the name Prometheus Bound. There are many instances where Zeus is proven to be stubborn and cold shouldered towards everyone, regardless of their standing. When talking to
