The shift from Realism to Impressionism in the 19th century represented not only a change in form, but it also represented a shift in ideology. As one of our module videos notes, rather than focusing on accuracy and clarity, Impressionism emphasized “what the mind and the eye sees” and the “impression of light and color.” We will briefly discuss how the differences in the approaches of the Realists and the Impressionists had interesting implications for arts and how these ideologies can be applied to the ways in which believers and unbelievers interpret art.
The value of your life isn't really something that can be measured. Some people consider your life more valuable than others, and some don't. Your parents love you, and would trade everything they own to save your life, but the majority of people wouldn't do the same. Although Your life may hold more value to some humans than others, but how much is your life actually worth, and what gives your life its value?
From the beginning of time people have pondered existence and what it means to truly “Be’, indeed the most important questions that one can ask are those of a metaphysical nature. The deeper questions that seek to explain the reason we’re here in the first place, if for any reason at all. It’s easy to get lost in the many differing theories proposed from Determinism to Rationalism to Solipsism to Absurdism the possible theories one can ascribe as correct are endless. But the ones that try to answer those big questions in the most general of terms are the ones that seem to hold the most verisimilitude. Existentialism, Nihilism, and Objectivism are the most general, and although quite different they are also quite similar. But existentialism seems to be the one which offers the most hope for optimism or any concern for altruism and personal growth.
Visual art and construction can be integrated within one another through different mediums. Frank Lloyd Wright shows this in the building, Fallingwater, while Wim Delvoye presents it in his piece, Caterpillar 5bis. These two men have very unique and different styles but in the end they both relate to art and construction. Whether it be art in construction or construction in art there is no doubt that the two have crossed paths.
The purpose of my report is to demonstrate the views of the catholic tradition and the secular world view Nihilism. These two views are very different in what they believe which will be interesting to compare and contrast the two. I am going to pursue the questions, ‘is there a higher being?’ ‘what happens to a person at death?’ and ‘what is the meaning/purpose of life?’. Knowing what secular, my secular world view and religious traditions will be very helpful with my findings for my report. Secular is something that is not connected to religious matters, my world view of Nihilism is based around the belief of life being meaningless with values being unfounded. The Catholic tradition ‘transmits in its entirety the Word of God which has been entrusted to the apostles by Christ the Lord and the Holy Spirit.’
Another term for Constructionism and the term is usually used in mathematics, science and technology (Holstein and Gubrium, 2008:8).
The topic that I decided to write about for my research assignment was Christianity on Nihilism. I found an online article of a Baptist pastor named Sean Dougherty writing about his opinion on Nihilism and Christianity. According to Pastor Dougherty Nihilism is a belief in nothingness as it discards morality and religion. Pastor Dougherty believes that without God there is no definition of Good and evil. That there is no purpose in life to help others that people will become hedonistic and become selfish.
Constructivist theory emphasizes the meanings that are assigned to material objects, rather than the mere existence of the objects themselves. Anne Marie Slaughter emphasizes that objects like military power and trade relations are important because of their social meaning . Constructivism intends to prove that an objective thing such as military power means something different when placed in different
The definition our book, found in the glossary, provides for this word is, “a viewpoint that denies objective moral truths and traditional religious and moral principles” (Fiero). Since there was limited information in our book or tours, I decided to do further research online. On a website, http://www.nihil.org/, I found they talk specifically about nihilism, stating that nihilism is a concept that is usually used to define either that we are under a rule of law and morality or that we are free with a sense of nothingness, no rules, governing body, God or otherwise. On the contrary, they believe that nihilism fits somewhere in between the 2 perspectives stating, “Nihilism argues for a middle path: we lack inherent order, but are defined by
Each art movement has a distinct style. Russian Suprematism has an elementary and uncomplicated painting style of basic geometric shapes that young infants can comprehend, for example, simple squares, circles, and rectangles. Kazimir Malevich was the founding artist that initiated the simplified art movement; he based the Suprematist style on fundamental geometric forms, especially the square and circle. An example of this simplified art movement is Malevich’s painting “Black Square,” it is an even black quadrangle with a consistent white boarder. This straightforward art piece is a common trend in Suprematism, similar artworks of the time have non-objective analysis of the artwork, the artist has no intention behind the artwork, but the audience solely interprets it. Therefore, one
Constructivism theory consists of insight towards oneself and other people, sexual orientation, cultural values, and beliefs. Schultheiss (2005) described this as meaning making, including the creation of social and psychological worlds through individual, cognitive processes. Meanwhile, social constructionism focuses on external insight, or
The 1859 publication of Darwin’s On the Origin of Species had dramatic consequences, among them the creation of doubt about God’s place in a world where species independently evolve and continually change. Darwin had not merely questioned God; he had shaken one of the core Christian beliefs: that God had created a flawless and unchanging earth. When Darwin’s ideas were not scientifically disproven, the basis of Christianity itself was called into question. That questioning continued as scientific discovery advanced. The traditional view and place of God became less and less applicable to modern life, triggering an onset of nihilism in many as the foundations of their lives were chipped away by scientific progress. Scholars and
The constructivism was an art movement that was after World War I in 1919. Constructivism was an artistic and architectural philolosospy that originated in Russia. This movement was favor of art as a practice of social purpose, it also had a great effect on modern art movement of the 20th century. It describes both an art and an attitude towards life and art.
Constructivism refers to the idea that learners construct knowledge for themselves and that each learner individually and socially construct meaning as he or she learns. In the views of constructivism, there is no such thing as knowledge independent of the knower, but only knowledge that the student constructs for themselves as they learn. According the constructivist theory, “learning is not understanding the “true” nature of things, nor is it remembering dimly perceived perfect ideas perfect ideas, but rather a personal and social construction of meaning out of the bewildering array of sensations which have no order or structure besides the explanations which educators fabricate
Constructivism is mainly a theory created on perception and logical study, about how individual learn. It says that individuals develop their own comprehension and information of the world, through encountering things and considering those encounters. Constructivism is a theory on realizing, which recommends that individuals get learning by encountering things and in conjunction with information that they as of now have, "develop" their own comprehension of these things (Piaget, 2016).
