Classical Liberalism vs Classical Conservatism

...Classical Liberalism VS Classical Conservatism Are you Republican or Democrat? Maybe you are Conservative or Liberal? What do these terms mean and how did they begin? Classical Conservatism is defined as “a political philosophy emphasizing the need for the principles of natural law and transcendent moral order.”(Frohnen, Beer, and Nelson, 2006) Classical Liberalism is described as “a philosophy committed to the ideal of limited government and liberty of individuals including freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, and free markets.” (Hudelson, 1999) These two ideas have shaped our philosophies and parties for centuries to come. These philosophies were made possible by many bright men of the time like Edmund Burke, John Adams, John Locke and Adam Smith. Classical conservatism or traditional conservatism, Burkean conservatism, and Toryism, is a party that has re-expressed their convections to fit the time. (Frohnen, Beer, and Nelson, 2006) In classical conservatism, many parties have adapted their view points. One of the first parties in American that adapted the philosophies of conservatism was the Whigs. The Whigs opposed monarchial power, advocated internal reform of administration, and freedom under the law. They believed in balancing orders in the common wealth and religious toleration. (Kirk, 1953) One person highly recognized for his work in the public sector for conservatism was Edmund Burke. Edmund Burke was born January 12, 1729 in Dublin, Ireland,......

...The Impacts of the French Revolution Latisha Wilson His 104 Professor Irene Geisler 6/17/13 The French Revolution was motivated by many origins. Many French people were displeased by the political, social and economic disorders, especially those of the third estate. The philosophers of the enlightenment changed publics’ points of view of government and society. Their goals were to expose and destroy the inequalities of the old order. The enlightenment ideals emphasized the idea of natural rights and equality. The enlightenment which was a period of where new ideas were spread throughout France often criticizing absolute government and the injustices of society. Enlightened thinkers believed that through reason humanity could advance into a new and better world. The Philosophers of the enlightenment were a vast political cause. They spread the idea that everyone should be equal. They tried to apply reason and the scientific method to laws that shaped human activities. John Locke believed that people have three natural rights. Life, liberty and property. The most impressive of the philosophers was the writer Voltaire. He fought for tolerance, reason, freedom of religious beliefs, and freedom of speech. Montesquieu wrote about separation of powers, dividing power among to separate branches of government. Jean Jacques Rousseau wrote in favor of human freedom. The enlightenment movement opened up citizen’s minds about positive change, respect for a person’s place...

...overthrow of a government or social order in favor of a new system. In history major changes take place often. One example of a major change was the French Revolution. The French Revolution occurred in France during the late 1700’s. The French people wanted to replace their Absolute government with a democracy. The ideas of the Enlightenment encouraged members of the 3rd Estate to revolt against Louis XVI. Revolution is change. The French Revolution is an example of change. There were many causes that led to the Revolution. One cause was the 3rd Estate wanted freedom. The 3rd Estate had a meeting to declare their equality within the French government. They produced a document known as the Declaration of the Rights of Man. Another cause of the Revolution was the need to lower the tax burden on the 3rd Estate. The 3rd Estate paid most of the taxes in France. A third cause of the Revolution was people wanted to have a democracy. In order to achieve this democracy the French people felt they had to execute Louis XVI by guillotine. There were many effects from the French Revolution. One immediate effect was instead of getting a democracy Napoleon took control of France. Napoleon was a dictator. However, over time France becomes a democracy. Today France is a democracy. One of the most important long term effects of the French Revolution was the inception of the Napoleonic Code, which influenced revolutions in other countries.

...The post has just arrived and in it a very nice surprise, the discovery that Jacques Seguela, one-time adviser to President Mitterrand, now close confidant of President and Madame Sarkozy (indeed he intoduced them), and something of a legend in French political communications, has dedicated his latest book to little old moi. With apologies for the missing accents here and in the French bits of the long posting which follows – the dedication to ‘Le Pouvoir dans la Peau‘ (Power in the skin) reads ‘A Alastair Campbell, mon spin doctor prefere’ (three missing accents in one word – mes excuses sinceres). So what did I do for this honour, you are asking? Well, perhaps the fact that he asked me to read his book, and write a ‘postface’ assessment both of his writing and of the issues he covers, and the fact that I said yes, has something to do with it. He says some blushmakingly kind things in his ‘preface to the postface’, which I will have to leave to French readers of the whole thing (published by Plon). But for the largely Anglophone visitors of this blog, I thought some of you might like to read the said ‘postface’ in English (apart from the bits where I quote direct from his book). I hope all those students who write asking for help with dissertations will find something quotable in it. Meanwhile I am off to Norway for a conference and a meeting with the Norwegian Labour Party. I’m looking forward to being in the country with the highest ‘human development index’ in......

Lemon Sauce

...INT1 Task 3 Exemplar Does More Sugar Make Lemon Sauce Runny? Project Design Plan Cornstarch is a common thickening agent in cooking. Plant starch is made of a mixture of amylose and amylopectin. When heated in a water-based solution, the starch molecules can unwind and then form new hydrogen bonds with other starch molecules, making a network of long molecular filaments that can hold water molecules in a gel (Holmes, 2012). The Argo Cornstarch website warns that too much sugar can interfere with thickening (Argo, 2012). Literature Review There are many different ways to thicken liquids and thickening liquids has many applications. Many experiments have been done to test different thickening methods. GVSoapCo tested 4 different substances to thicken homemade liquid hand soap: Xanthan Gum, Borax, Salt or Crothix. This experiment used the same soap recipe, substituting the different thickening agents. The experimenter then tested the thickness or runniness of the finished soap by spooning it up and drizzling it. This showed that the Crothix thickener made the thickest, smoothest soap, whereas the salt made the thinnest, runniest soap. While the spooning method was effective at showing the qualitative difference the thickening agent made, it didn’t produce quantitative measurements of the relative thickness (GVSoapCo, 2013). Foy compared low sugar pectin with traditional pectin in making grape jelly. She reported that the traditional pectin made......

Classical and Neoclassical

...Classical and Neoclassical The classical art period is thought of as a time which expressed itself in architecture, art, music and literature. (Miriam-Webster, 2015) The ancient Greek and Roman cultures embraced order and predictability. During the 15th and 16th centuries classicism spread throughout Europe in many forms, depicting rigorous discipline and training. This art period even promoted the formation of schools of art and music. The Neoclassic art movement began in Europe during the late 1700’s and continued until the early 1800’s. This movement’s goal was to revive ancient Greek and Roman or Classic style in European art. The Neoclassical style highlighted tradition, valor, sacrifice and nationalism which mirrors the style of the classic period The Neoclassic art movement spread through most of Europe, but the French and English artists embraced neoclassical art even more. There were several reasons for the inception of neoclassicism. One of the well-known reasons was the discovery at the ruins of Herculaneum and Pompeii. Ancient artifacts of Classical works were located at these locations. It was noted on Arteducation .com (2015) that German art historian Johann J. Winckelmann commented about classic art. He stated that “noble simplicity and calm grandeur” were the most important aspects. And since the current art movement was the extremely ostentatious baroque and rococo art styles, many artists chose to return to the classic style. In...

Auguste Escoffier

...Auguste Escoffier Jessica Hostetler Basic Food Theory and Skills January 27, 2014 Auguste Escoffier has done more for cuisine than any other chef. He is known as the “Chef of Kings-King of Chefs”. He was also known as the “Father of Classic Cuisine”. He has made the art of cuisine something to be respected. He started out cooking at a very young age. When he was thirteen, he apprenticed in Nice, and quickly moved upward in his chosen profession. In fact, worked for around sixty-one years! He became so famous that he cooked for many popular cultural figures, some being Edward VII and Kaiser Wilhelm II. He was famous for a good reason though. He simplified modern cuisine in many wonderful ways. He eliminated unnecessary garnishes, reduced the number of courses served in a meal, he made more of a use for seasonal foods, and so many more things. He basically just simplified the art of cuisine. He said, "Because it is simplified on the surface, it does not lose its value. On the contrary, tastes are constantly being refined and cooking must be refined to satisfy them." Auguste Escoffier had many accomplishments he was even known to be better than Marie-Antoine Carême. A big accomplishment of Escoffier’s had to do with Grand Cuisine. Grand Cuisine consisted of very complicated dishes. It had rich sauces and garnishes that sometimes outweighed the main ingredients of the dish. Escoffier simplified the way of Grand Cuisine making it less complicated. Another......

Sphagetti Sauce

..."Choice, happiness, and spaghetti sauce" In the video, Mr.Gladwell speaks about choice and happiness. He mentions how Pepsi chose to get aspartame for their drink. He said that Pepsi had to choose on how much aspartame they should add in their drink for people to like it. Finally they thought why they shouldn’t try a new product. They came up with Diet Pepsi. They started experimenting with Diet Pepsi. While analyzing data of Diet Pepsi they came across a new question; why where they looking for the perfect Pepsi , when they should have been looking for the perfect Pepsis. Instead of looking at one choice they should have been looking at many choices. Later, Mr. Gladwell talks about Campbell’s Soup and their tomato sauce which were of two different kinds, Prego and Ragu. They strived in making the best tasting sauce ever for which they added different quantities of ingredients in their sauce. This took them a high two to three decades of great effort to figure out the choice of the consumer. Then they started adding flavor to the sauce where they dint go with the highest average. They had to stick to choose the best flavor instead of the best sauce. Mr.Gladwell quotes that a "surer way to true happiness" can be found by embracing diversity. In marketing terms, companies might be able to make profits by embracing the differences in consumer's preferences. A major challenge in the FMCG was that it was asking what the customers want. The fact is that the......

Mother Sauces

...said that “Sauces are the splendor and glory of French cooking.” In culinary arts there are the basic five mother sauces, including; béchamel, veloute, espagnloe, hollandaise, and tomato. These mother sauces are used to make up other small sauces. The French mother sauces were originally four base sauces set forward by Antonin Careme in the 19th century. Careme’s four original mother sauces were Allemande, Bechamel, Veloute and Espagnole. A carefully constructed French sauce is usually developed in several stages and requires attention at each stage to balance all of the components. Some French sauces function to contrast while others help to extend or amplify intrinsic flavors. Throughout the history of cuisine; sauces have been used as a basis for many regional styles of cuisine. A sauce is defined as a liquid or semi-solid food served on or in the process of preparing other foods. Sauces are created to accompany other foods and make them look, smell, and taste better. They are easily digested and nutritionally beneficial. Sauces are not served by themselves; they add flavor, moisture, aromas, and visual appeals to a finished dish. Today there are many different compound or small sauces that can be seen worldwide, however these small sauces are linked to and are derived from the five classified mother sauces. Two French chefs that contributed to the creation of these fundamental sauces are, Marie-Antoine Crème; who was responsible for classifying the sauces into......

...Classical Conditioning Paper Nicole Young PSY/390 January 23,2012 Dr. Steve Lazarre Classical Conditioning Paper In the mind of B. F. Skinner learning is considered to be a relatively permanent change in an individual or animals behavior due to practice and experience. Classical condition is a type of learning generated by a response from one stimulus to another unlearned stimulus. This form of classical conditioning was founded by Ivan Pavlov and he is most famous for his experiment with dogs and the bell. In Pavlov’s experiment with classical conditioning it involved the salivary glands of canines. The scenario for this paper will teach a dog to not chew on furniture, using classical conditioning and, vinegar in a spray bottle. Classical conditioning was discovered accidentally by Ivan Pavlov, who was a Russian physiologist. Pavlov discovered this form of learning while researching digestion. Pavlov’s classical conditioning is a form of learning through acquired experiences. Classical conditioning is where an earlier or previously neutral stimulus causes a reaction or reflex to a physical response (Olson & Hergenhahn, 2009). As he observed dogs beginning to drool when food was shown Pavlov could then begin to predict the other forms of stimulation. As Pavlov further researched the response from the canine, Pavlov found that when he presented a bell to the animal he could then reproduce the animals’ reaction to salivating with just the sound of the bell......

A French saying describes the attitude of French cooks toward their art: “ L’excès en tout est défaut “ —“excess is always a fault.” In other words, you can have too much of a good thing. French cooks use strong flavors, such as garlic, in small amounts so that they will not overpower other flavors. In fact, the most important rule in French cooking is not to use too much of any one ingredient. History of French Cooking Hundreds of years ago, the chefs who worked for the kings and queens of France developed haute or grande cuisine. This kind of cooking featured huge, complicated meals that took hours of preparation and often included unusual ingredients such as rare wines and exotic fruits. When the French nobility was overthrown in the 1789 French Revolution, the chefs......

Classical Leisure

...Classical Leisure Classical leisure in ancient Greece was a health and knowledge based ideal that promoted virtuous choices and conduct, and in turn led to true happiness and fulfilment. This state of being, known to many as Aristotle’s ‘classical leisure ideal’, was not restricted by work or time and had no ulterior motives. The parallels in contemporary leisure pursuits that can be seen today include studying, poetry, music, games, travel and sport; and are crucial for the preservation of arts, culture and the history of leisure in the 21st century. The classical leisure ideal emerged in Greece in 400-500 BC, where Greek life was based on the city-state, and philosophers such as Socrates, Plato, Epicurus and especially Aristotle expressed leisure (schole) as the main goal in life (telos) (Lynch and Veal, 2006). ‘This state of being was contemplative and felicitous, with activity both giving intrinsic pleasure and being undertaken for self-development’, and was completely separate from ‘free time’ - ‘...anybody can have free time. Not everybody can have leisure’ (de Grazia, 1962 as cited in Lynch and Veal 2006 p. 8). Conditions that need to be met for classical leisure to exist include an awareness of the concept, ‘a breakdown in the universal ‘work ethic’’ and an ‘absence of the clock’ (p. 8). Consumerism and narcissism hinder these features and thus prevent some modern societies from adopting a system based on classical leisure. The ideas of freedom and......
