November 23, 2011 The painting I chose to write about was “The Last Judgement” which is a masterpiece by Michelangelo. This painting covers the whole entire wall behind the alter of the Sistine chapel. This is an illustration of the second coming of Christ. In the painting you can tell that Michelangelo was inspired by the Bible, but he also uses his own visual ideas and imagination in this painting. This painting is huge, and its measurements are 48X44 feet. This painting was created between the years of 1536 and1541. This painting was made out of fresco, so Michelangelo had to work fast on this painting so he would be done before it dried. It’s obvious that Michelangelo not only got ideas from the Bible, but he also added some theories from mythology in his painting. For instance, the boatman at the bottom of the painting is the boatman from Roman and Greek mythology that ferried the unsaved to hell, and that’s exactly what he’s doing in this painting. The emotion and frightening looks on the people faces helps show that they’re going to hell. This painting has some other unique features about it. For example, the men and women have very voluptuous body figures. This is how most of the people are painted in Michelangelo’s paintings. I believe this is how people were perceived in his era. This is totally different then how things are in our times. Now women have to be skinny or even anorexic to be perceived as beautiful. Painters don’t usually draw voluptuous people in their paintings anymore. Since I’m a Christian and I know quite a bit about the Bible and some pieces of this painting is out of the Bible. For instance, under Christ the Archangel can be seen reading from “The Book of Life”. He’s telling people which ones are going to heaven and which ones are going to be cast down into hell.

Last Judgement

...Shawn Davies 09/21/2012 Dr. Scott G. Sinclair Intro to Christianity through Art The Last Judgment The last judgment in the bible talks about how Christ comes to pass judgment on those who have sinned. The person would need to repent for their sins in order to be saved and be able to rejoice in the light of the Lord. There are many ways to interpret the passages in the bible pertaining to the last judgment. It mainly depends on the person and what he or she can draw from the passages that gives them the most meaning to their life and how to apply it to their current situation. I found a few passages that helped me get a better understanding of what the last judgment is about. I feel that, as with many things from the bible, people can take passages from the bible that refer to the last judgment too literal sometimes. Sometimes when I walk down the street, in certain parts of San Francisco, I usually end up running into someone who has a cardboard sign that says "the end is near." I believe that the last judgment is there, in many ways, to help make sure that Christians as a whole try to stay on a path of good. I felt that when I read passages that talked about the last judgment it made me think outside of my normal realm of thinking. This particular passage from Revelations 20: 11-15 that peaked my interest and caused me to reflect on it a bit: " Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no...

Conscience and Moral Judgement

...right decisions and not a voice giving us commands” (Philosophical Investigations 2009). He recognised its purpose as a faculty that distinguished right from wrong actions, inferring that humans, by nature, would do good and avoid evil, abbreviated by the term ‘Synderesis’ (Philosophical Investigations 2009). Aquinas inferred that there were two main principles that would define moral decision making: ‘Synderesis’, “a natural disposition of the human mind by which we instinctively understand the first principles of morality”, and ‘Concsientia’, “the application of knowledge to activity” (Philosophical Investigations 2009). Whereas ‘synderesis’ would describe the differentiation between an innate source of good and evil, ‘conscienta’ was a judgement derived from our reason, a theory based on links to Aristotle’s concept of ‘phronesis’, or practical wisdom. Aquinas demonstrated within his reasoning that the conscience was vulnerable to making mistakes, therefore requiring to be trained in the ways of wisdom, accepting that at times people would do bad things in their attempt of discriminating good from evil (Philosophical Investigations 2009). He believed that if the conscience made a factual mistake, then blame wouldn’t be faced by the mistaken conscience. However, if it is oneself that is ignorant of the rule, choosing to ignore it, then they are the one to be blamed. This concept of conscience is important because it more full acknowledges the individual’s active role in......

Day of Judgement

...with you from the same grave? Now regarding your father and your mother–do you remember that day when your father died how much you cried? Do you remember how much you hugged and kissed him and said, "If I could only see him again for one second?" And now, on the resurrection day, after thousands of years, imagine how much you really missed him. Of course you will hug him and kiss him... or at least that is what you imagine. But no, this will not happen. Allah says: "That Day shall a man flee from his own brother, and from his mother and his father, and from his wife and his children." Imagine yourself running away from your own father! From your own Mother, from your spouse, from your children! It has been a thousand years since the last time you saw them and you are running! Can you imagine yourself running from your mother, your children and your spouse? Everyone is running, but where to? No one knows where to. We are just running and saying the same word "myself, myself" again and again. "Myself–Myself". Imagine yourself running without an aim. You don't know where you are going, you are so afraid, and you're just running and running. You don't want to be tied down by anyone and you don't want anyone to stop you from running. Maybe this picture scared you, but I told you that resurrection day it not all fearful. Now imagine the bright and beautiful side: A family coming out from their graves holding hands. Imagine with me– the father, the mother, and the......

Harsh Judgements in Society

...Harsh Judgements in Society In the article, “More Than A Body? Prove It.” the two authors of the piece were working on getting their PhD’s. Some people may think that will affect the way people view or read the article but knowing that had no affect on me. They used good examples and were direct with getting to the point and purpose. While reading this article it made me more aware that girls and women are really allowing media to influence their lives. I always knew that media had a very big impact on girls at young ages but I was never aware of how much the media in today’s society really has an affect on women of all ages. The purpose of this article was mainly to make everyone aware of the things they learned while working on the campaign. It is so common to have girls feel insecure about the way they look but now a days it is getting to be a little extreme. The media has such an effect on the way girls and women view themselves. The effects that the media has on women today is mainly viewed as negative. One little article can make a woman feel so insecure about themselves. It is really sad to think that so many people are going out and getting all kinds of extreme surgeries just to look the way “they think they should”. No one can ever tell someone how they should or should not look. Everyone is different and each person should be embraced for the way they look. If everyone looked the way magazines say we should then we would live in a world with no diversity. One of......

He Who Lasts Last Lasts Best?

...HE WHO LASTS LAST LASTS BEST? As discussed in the exercise, the improvemnets in technologies and business processes at one side expands the market but on the other hand also brings decay for several players in the market. With the decay deciding the exit / collude / compete strategy for any particular industry player becomes a crucial factor. In this exercise we have two players – David & Goliath in the slingshot industry, which is one of the decaying industry. Based on theprevious quarter results of each other, both the players decide either to stay or to exit in the coming quarter without knowing each other’s choice. Since we know that slingshot industry will extinct by 1991, we need to come up with the exit strategy for the existing two firms. To analyze a possible exit point we have used the „Elimination of Dominated Strategy“ with following steps: 1. Drawing the sequential decision tree for David & Goliath from 1988 to 1991 2. Working from backwards to eliminate non-credible options at each point 3. Finding a possible set of best strategy at each level 4. Taking the chosen set of strategy above to the previous level 5. Repeating steps 2 to 4 till we locate a possible exit point for one of the players | David | Qty | Revenue | Goliath | Qty | Revenue | David & | Qty | Revenue-D | Revenue - G | | Alone | |   | Alone | |   | Goliath | | | | | | |   | | |   | | | | | Jan. 1988 | 3 | 1 | 3 | 2 | 2 | 4 |......

False Judgement

...time in their life when they have misjudged a situation. Whether it was assuming someone took your pencil when it is actually in behind you ear, or assuming which character is the killer in our favorite movie, we all have misjudgements all the time in our lives. When was the last time you have mistaken a situation? The theme of false judgement demonstrated in the play “Othello” by Shakespeare, the short story “The Invisible Wound” by Karoly Kisfaludi, and the film “To Kill a Mockingbird”. In these three storylines, the author exhibits the theme of false judgment through a character of innocence that is poorly misjudged and ends tragically for them. Othello accuses his wife, Desdemona of adultery, while the unnamed protagonist in “The Invisible Wound” also inaccurately assumes his wife is cheating. In “To Kill a Mockingbird”, the jury accuses Tom Robinson of a crime that he did not commit all because of the colour of his skin. Given the above, it is clear that these three story lines hold the same theme of an error in judgement occurring. Throughout the play, “Othello” by William Shakespeare, a few of the characters are condemned on untruthful information. Desdemona and Cassio are victims of poor judgement. Accusations towards Desdemona seem to be the most prominent to any reader – which all begin when Othello falls to Iago’s manipulation that causes Othello to poorly judge his own wife. Othello accuses his wife, Desdemona, of adultery. Iago provides “proof” of Desdemona’s......

Judgement

...Hana Resa Ananda 141521019 Judgement Judgement is the final step in process of knowing. Before we’ve been learned together about conceptualization as the second process of knowing, and conceptualization considered apart from judgement. Simply allows to us to think the materials provided by sensation and perception. Conceptualization is the beginning of understanding, in that it classifies and relates as such-and-such the this-here-now of sensibility tentatively and hypothetically. The classification must correct and to be verified, that is, it must be shown that the evidence is sufficient to warrant the assertion in each case “it is so”. Only then is knowing complete, for only then is any truth-claim made. Judging Judging is the act of the mind by which a proposition is grasped as virtually unconditioned, that is, as having sufficient evidence for its assertion as true. The first is composition and division. This refers to the act of formulating a proposition in the form: S is (not) P. Proportion is difference language but the meaning, for instance: x. The book is red y. The book is red, these two sentence are same but has difference meaning. Utterances: 2 utterences Propostion: 1 proposition The second role of judgement on this traditional presentation is precisely affirmation or denial of a proposition. Judgement in the full sense requires an answer to the question for reflection, although it supposes an answer to the question for intelligence. The......

The Last

...Benjamin Lucas COMM240 – Interpersonal Paper The Last I recall a brightly lit room on a Sunday morning, as I kissed her on the forehead, “I love you…” Slowly she opened her eyes and as she sat next to me, “Hey… Um… How many were there before me?” she asked. “Like, how many girls did you love before me?” “Love? Five…” I stated. “I loved five women before you.” The disappointment in her eyes after a sigh, though she smiled… “What are their names?” “…Who, What, When, Where, Why…” I said to her. “Can you tell me about them?” “Who I loved, was a girl from college. I wasn’t exactly close to her, but with some superficial facts and a few interactions over a semester, you know, like most guys fantasizing over girls they barely know, I filled in the blanks like a fairytale author. And who she became in my head was probably more than the reality. She was a third year, sorority girl, and yeah, I was an infatuated freshman, sure, but the several times you get to spend together outside of class… It really allowed me to see, she also had a good heart and a bright spirit. The only problem was, so did just about every other guy. And while she turned me down nicely, I swear… There were times when it seemed like the cliché sorority girl may have felt something for the typical awkward freshman.” “What I loved, was an old friend, but she was more than just a friend. We met early in college and kept in touch through the years. We saw each other grow, and change...

The Judgement of Beauty

...The Judgement of Beauty The judgments of beauty are universally consistent and biologically based, not influenced by culture and individual history. Argue for or against this statement using what you have learned from the course to support your point of view. You may use one or more examples from outside readings to illustrate your points. “Beauty”, as defined in the Oxford Dictionary (2015), is a collection of pleasant qualities, especially those increase the attractiveness of a person or an object. It can be categorized into two different kinds: external beauty and inner beauty (Panek, 2011). External beauty mainly focuses on appearance and body shape (Etcoff, 1999), while inner beauty refers to internal qualities which is considered nice and graceful to others (Perry, 2011). A person described as “beautiful” usually possess a combination of both. While the concept of “inner beauty” is universal, the standard of external beauty is subject to variations (Carla615, 2011), hence would be the main focus of this essay. Some believe that such judgments are universally consistent and based on biological evidence, while others are convinced that culture and one’s individual background may also impact on judgements of beauty. In fact, judgments of beauty are made under a mixed factor of biological intuition, individual history and cultural change. They are not universal across the world. Across centuries, the standard of beauty was always under the influence of culture.......

Wise Judgement

...Running head: WISE JUDGEMENT Wise Judgement Crystal Davila ENG 106 Survey of Literary Masterpieces University of Phoenix Daphne Matthews May 7, 2012 Wise Judgment There is this teenage girl Michelle who states that she is “in love” with her 17-year-old boyfriend. Her boyfriend is encouraging her to have sex with him saying that he will make sure they only have “protected” sex. The questions that come to my mind is what exactly is protected sex and how does she know she really is in love. At this age, do young adults really understand the true meaning behind love? There are five components of wise judgment and they can be applied to this scenario to understand what is happening and what can be done to help her understand how serious this situation can be. The first component to wise judgment is factual knowledge about matter of life. In this situation, does Michelle really understand what is at steak? This is similar to The Death of Ivan Ilyich when he states “What is the right thing?“ (Tolstoy, 2243). If not she should understand that correct information about protected sex. Even if someone has protected sex does not mean they are one hundred percent safe. Everything that is available for protective sex has warnings printed on them. Just because someone is in love does not mean they have to have sex. On the other hand, if Michelle was not ready and understood what can happen if she does give in to having sex with her boyfriend then she......

Judgement Calls

...no smoking policy and by smoking in the bathroom he/she was breaking the policy which can affect the other smokers and the non-smokers. Such an effect would be being blamed for his breaking of the rules and suffering the consequences. 5. During an initial lunch with some important potential customers, your boss made a spectacle of herself. The potential customer’s managers spent most of the time watching her as she talked about how dumb your company’s suppliers are and how all manages are like those in Dilbert. She used her fingers to wipe her mouth and kept the napkin on the table to wipe her fingers on. She used a salad fork to stab the chicken out of her chicken soup and wrapped her tea bag around her dessert spoon to wring the last drops of tea from it. At the end, she asked for a doggie bag because she “might want a little something later.” She says she can’t wait for the next meeting, which may make or break the whole deal. In this particular scenario my boss has just about broken every rule of proper etiquette. By doing this she as left a lasting impression of the lack of leadership skills, professionalism, and single handedly destroyed reputation of the company. During the initial lunch it would almost be impossible to speak with her and remedy her behavior. This further explained with the following: “Not conforming to etiquette in purely social situations might cause some embarrassment or a loss of social status or invitations to future events. Not......
