hope is the human condition that pushes us to attain the socially and culturally produced ideals of
happiness, by giving us the will to persevere and continue our pursuit towards it. The purpose of this
essay is to argue that the interaction between culture and emotion, specifically the socially and
culturally produced notion of happiness and the emotion of hope, is a social fact. This would be
dubbed as the process of hoping for happiness. To illustrate the interaction between hope and
happiness, the essay will firstly discuss what happiness and hope is, before linking the two concepts
through theory and an example. I would also assess the process and the implication that

Chuva’s planning for the Giver- Novel is better
· The movie moves too quickly, speeding through explanations and experiences where the book lingers.
· The Community is hastily shown to us, whereas the book spends long chapters introducing us to their society, only slowly revealing how ominous their rules truly are.
· The movie lacks a cohesive logic. In the book, Jonas and the Giver are the only two people capable of deep emotion. The actions and apathy of the other characters are seen as tragic and maddening, but we understand that without memories and emotions, they cannot help themselves. They are little more than robots.

Romeo and Juliet – love or infatuation?
The question of whether the emotion between Romeo and Juliet is one of true love or childish infatuation, is a difficult one to answer as their "violent delights has violent ends" in only three days. I conclude, however, that there is not a question that their ‘violent delight’ was an attraction based on physical love, rather than a lasting emotional attachment. It is thus my opinion that the emotion these two teens felt, was mere infatuation, and not love.
We can see the infatuation in quite a few examples throughout the play. The first is that only moments before Romeo saw Juliet, he was desperately in love with Rosaline. This shows that he falls

Hard Times by Charles Dickens – Commentary
Charles Dickens’ Hard Times is set during the industrial revolution of the mid-19th century in Coketown, England. The title refers to the era of great change that brought about hard times to the working class. The setting creates a clear contrast between the owners of properties and the people that work for them. Aside from this, the extract also explores the dualities between humans and machines as well as men and women. Dickens offers a criticism of the modern education system using the example of Mr Gradgrind’s method of teaching, one that seeks knowledge and fact above all else whilst disregarding emotion, creativity and imagination.

incestuous marriage to the king, “Oh most wicked speed, to post with such dexterity to incestuous sheets” evokes notion of deceit and disloyalty reinforcing Claudius’s portrayal as a catalyst for tension and regression. This is reinforced by Hamlet’s self-reflexive statement “I have a father killed, a mother stained”. The metaphor of “a mother stained” illustrates the disease-ridden Denmark triggered by Claudius’s crimes of fratricide and regicide “a father killed” which inevitably leads to Hamlet’s psychological conflict with emotion and logic. Shakespeare explores the disturbance to the natural order to highlight the political tensions of the time and to expose the deceitful intent of a

Theory of Knowledge EssayAs a Russian IB student who spent more than half of his 18 year life in China, I have been a witness to varied, conflicting and numerous forms of belief and knowledge. This led me to an opinion that every one of us perceives things differently and our diversified forms of knowledge and belief bring us to different conclusions and opinions on specific subjects. Our ethnicity, upbringing, nationality, as well as mentality all affect our believes and the knowledge we gain as well as make us think differently whether from emotion or reason. Nevertheless we must be able to distinguish belief from true knowledge. This is a basic instinct every intelligent human being

In the book Things Fall Apart, the main character, a man named Okonkwo, is a very angry man. During the story, he tries to take his anger out on his children and wives by beating them. His anger is probably because he had a terrible life growing up because of his father being a lazy man. The fact that showing any kind of emotion in the tribe besides for anger is considered a sign of weakness probably helped in his struggle to be a better man than his father so he feels he has to be angry. He beats his kids and wife all of the time for things like not being on time to bring his meal and his children not showing interest in the same things he is interested in.

What is love? Is it a complicated blend of brain chemistry that is created in such complex ways that people don't know how to control it, or is love simply put an emotion. Who really knows the answer? Whether it's a feeling created in your brain or an emotion that derives from the heart, it is a very powerful sensation to any human. Many people have the chance to love in their life time, but many people experience it in different ways. You can have love for so many different things sports, cars, books, but there is only one thing that a person can be in love with and that is another person.

Pursuing Social Harmony – Politeness Vs Negative Emotional Expression
I believe that society is failing in our pursuit of social harmony by placing the act of being polite front and center and discouraging the expression of any form of negative emotion or thought, despite those emotions being very real and impactful to our psychological and physiological well-being. To further our failures, we are encouraging each other to focus only on positive expressions of emotion, despite feeling any form of positivity or not. We are force feeding emotional repression at an alarming rate and standing with our hands raised in confusion, wondering why suicide rates and anti-depressant medication

I would argue that Thomas Hyde would certainly not have wanted to condemn every sufferer of ALS to simply die as he was only requesting it for his own personal circumstances. This brings to question a further weakness of Kantian Ethics – its inability to consider individual circumstances. Whilst Kant aimed for the greater good of society as a whole, he failed to consider the prosperity and free will of the individual. His theory lends itself to reason and intellect yet in my opinion, fails to appreciate emotion and the complexity of the human

impressions can be accurate especially if they are intuitive.
· Forming impressions of an individual especially when their first impressions are more accurate when they are non-conscious and automatic. This occurs when there is no deliberation that goes into this formation as with deliberation comes explicit thinking.
· Future research should be conducted into the area of emotion. An individual’s emotion and the mood they are in that day can result in different perspectives of different situations. Someone who is happy will have a more positive perception of who they meet and what they experience. This is opposite to someone who may be in a bad mood. Therefore, depending on what emotion you are feeling as well as the emotion another individual may be feeling, it can change the way you perceive things, especially with the impressions you make.

The Depths of Anger: Aristotle vs Seneca
Everyday humans are faced with many emotions. Some are easier to control than others. Out of
the various emotions that we continuously feel, there is only one that can’t be hidden. Most of
your emotions can be covered or faked but anger is the only emotion that will always reveal
itself no matter the situation. This makes anger one of the most complex and intriguing emotions
to study. There are two important philosopher, Aristotle and Seneca, that both have an opinion
on how we should deal with anger and why it is important to be conscious of it.

Darwin’s theory of natural selection caused many psychologists to try and explain all human behaviors through instincts, most agree that our behavior is motivated by other biological and psychological factors.
Drive reduction theory – behavior is motivated by biological needs. A need is one of our requirements for survival, a drive is our impulse to act in a way that satisfies this need
Homeostasis- balanced internal state
Drives are primary and secondary-
Primary- biological needs like thirst and hunger
Secondary – learned drives like money

emotion is an aspect of loss which is quite evident in Owen’s ‘Disabled’, but, for the most part, is not present in Frost’s ‘Out, Out –’. Instead, the boy is portrayed as being devoid of any emotion – with the events of the poem elucidating what happens to the boy physically, opposed to the emotional effects. The absence of emotion on the boy’s behalf is mirrored by the lack of emotion and callousness of the adults treating him (with them “[turning] to their affairs” after the boy’s death). This is most salient in lines 29-34, with it describing the treatment of the boy post-injury. Emotional loss is, however, dealt with differently in Owen’s ‘Disabled’ – with it being shown to a substantial

Tommy Emmanuel may also use memory to know that specific chords and notes sound good together to him. Again, whether music sounds good or not is largely subjective.

wear a person down. The crushing fear of being replaced by another person, ultimately leading to the demise of the relationship is nothing short of a burden. The idea of jealousy has to be learned and can become a habit that lasts a lifetime, transcending all relationships. After someone is accustomed to the feelings of jealousy, that emotion becomes familiar, never leaving the mind of a person.
Jealousy ruins relationships because jealousy breaks trust, causes stress, and lasts forever. This is a detrimental to have in a relationship. Once a reason to be jealous is presented, then that will always be a reason to cause worry regarding the other partner. As a result, it is a good idea to get to know the past of a person before committing to a relationship. When knowing the past of a person, one has the opportunity to make decisions moving forward in the relationship and what to expect if one chooses to ignore any of the warning signs that could be present. Jealousy is harmful in a relationship and a heavy emotion to process.

Although the story had vivid descriptions of the scenario and some episodes of humor, it never fully captivated me. It moved at a slow pace and the dialogue between the characters were confusing since they were not on the same time line and didn't seem to relate one to another. The story develops at the moment of her death yet the strong emotion that comes with this subject was not revealed with the protagonist. As the old woman narrates from a delusional state, the description of the characters translates vaguely and the plot never seemed to be going anywhere.

Themes throughout Macbeth Setting a mood, showing emotion, and revealing the inner thoughts of a character are all effects that the use of motifs achieves. Themes are present in today's society and literature as well as in the past; however, during the present time, motifs are prominent in the home, office, and school instead of within great literary works. William Shakespeare, one of the greatest playwrights of all time, is known especially for his ability to use themes throughout a play in order to create either a comic of tragic effect. Motifs can be found on two different levels; they can either be easily noticed, or they must be inferred by "reading beneath the lines."

believe). One character sees glimpses of the future, another embodies tragedies from the past. There are ghosts and vampires in the play as well. There are many motifs in this play that set a background for future themes. Age/youth, guilt/innocence, beauty/grotesque horror, sin/redemption, and love/death are many of the contrasting ideas that go on in this play. I might not have understood the play the way others did. What I got from the play was that a takeoff of fun legends turned into the opposite of happy fairytales. What would be foreshadowed, in a typical fairytale, was immediately cut down and the exact opposite occurred. I think that the message of this play is that "happily ever after" is not real. Reality is not love, friendship, honor, and triumph. Reality should be considered loss, death, fear, and negative emotion. In a sick way, this play makes you reconsider what genuine practicality is.

The presentation has fulfilled the potential of utilising any opportunity in the aspects of modern play to enhance the story the director is willing to exhibit through the script. More importantly without going astray from the originality or essence of the script the director has managed to complement and interpret the play.

states that emotions arise from the physiological arousal. One would only experience a feeling

However, this experience opens his eyes not only to what is standing in front of him, but, on a deeper level, to the duality of life. Dual means two, or, a pair of something. Therefore, duality of life is the principle that there are two sides to everything: people, events, ideas, and beliefs. Nothing in life is the way it appears; people are not always true in the way they portray themselves, and circumstances are not always justified by history.
