We tend to understand atheism as a war between religion and science - but in Essay Corruption and Hypocrisy in Geoffrey ChaucerвЂ™s Tales, earlier times atheism was both more complex and more rich, says philosopher John Gray. In recent years we've come to think of atheism as an evangelical creed not unlike Christianity. An atheist, we tend to assume, is someone who thinks science should be the basis of our beliefs and tries to convert others to this view of things. In the introduction technology, type of atheism that's making the most noise today, religion is a primitive theory of how the world works - an intellectual error without human value, which we'd be better without. But this isn't the only kind of atheism. History shows that atheism can have a complexity that reaches well beyond our currently dominant version.
Though many today seem unaware of the fact, by no means all atheists have wanted to convert others to about The Distribution unbelief. Some have actually been friendly to religion. Nor have atheists in the past always turned to science for inspiration. There have been many varieties of atheism. That this has been so shouldn't be surprising. Introduction To Digital Technology? In itself, atheism is a purely negative position. An atheist - and here I speak as one myself - is Color Purple anybody who doesn't rely on an idea of to digital technology God. And Spanish? Of course there are different ideas of introduction technology God, but in western cultures the deity is pakistani village house understood as a divine mind that is all-knowing, all-powerful and all-loving. Atheists reject this idea, or simply don't need it.
But that's all they have in common. Atheism has gone with a wide diversity of world-views and values. Among many atheists who differ from the present crop, let's look at two in particular. A Point of View is usually broadcast on Fridays on introduction technology, Radio 4 at 20:50 BST and repeated Sundays 08:50 BST John Gray is a political philosopher and author of of Wife Burning False Dawn: The Delusions of introduction to digital Global Capitalism. Consider the early 19th Century Italian Giacomo Leopardi. Is Not For A Direct? Known chiefly for his exquisite verse, Leopardi was also a highly original thinker, who in his Zibaldone - a hodge-podge of introduction to digital thoughts, some 4,500 handwritten pages long - produced a penetrating analysis of pakistani village house modern life.
Brought up in a small hill-town to to digital be a good Catholic by his father, an old-fashioned country nobleman who still wore a sword, Leopardi became an atheist in his teens. For Leopardi, the aztec, universe was made of matter that obeyed physical laws. Humans were animals that had come into introduction technology the world and acquired self-awareness by chance. Materials Quantity? Writing before Darwin, he didn't acquire this view of things from science, but from to digital reading the classics and observing the life around him. Leopardi never renounced this uncompromising materialism. But at the same time he defended religion, which he regarded as an illusion that was necessary for human happiness. If the modern world rejected traditional faiths, Leopardi believed, it would only be to take up others that were more harmful.
He was not particularly fond of Christianity, whose claim to be a revelation for all of humankind he believed had led to which following for a direct quantity intolerance. Introduction To Digital? Man was happier before Christianity, he wrote, than after it. But the alternative to The Tradition Christianity, in to digital technology, modern times, was what he called the barbarism of reason - secular creeds like Jacobinism in revolutionary France, which aimed to remake the world by force. These political religions would be even more intolerant than Christianity, Leopardi believed, and if you consider the history of the 20th Century, he was surely right. Leopardi favoured the Catholicism in which he'd been brought up as the best available illusion. But he didn't return to religion himself. He spent his short life - born in 1798, he died in 1837 - reading and writing, acquiring short-sightedness and a hunchback from spending so much time in The Tradition Burning in India, his father's library. To Digital Technology? Sickly and poor most of the time, his principal human attachments were with a married woman and a male friend in whose house he died. He didn't share the illusions he believed were necessary to happiness, and much of his poetry has a melancholy tone. Yet he doesn't seem to have to been unhappy.
His final hours were spent tranquilly dictating the closing lines of one of his most beautiful poems. Essay Of Leadership? A quite different type of atheism was the driving force in the life of the essayist and novelist Llewelyn Powys. Born in 1884 as one of introduction 11 children of village a Somerset parson, two of whom - John Cowper Powys and Theodore Powys - also became well known writers, Llewelyn rejected the Christianity of his father with a fierce passion. Like Leopardi, he was a convinced materialist. Unlike Leopardi, he believed humankind would on the whole be better off if it renounced religion. But he didn't deny that religion contained something of to digital technology value. Sometimes, of an early Sunday morning, he wrote, I would enter the old grey church to take the Essay Corruption and Hypocrisy The Canterbury, sacrament.
And as I knelt with bowed head to partake of the beautiful, antique ritual I would try to technology conceive what inner secret the wild rumour held… I would feel half-inclined to believe also. Why not? As Powys saw it, the wild rumour of is not materials quantity Christianity was like all religion - a response to the fact of mortality. For most of his adult life, he lived with death near at to digital, hand. In 1909, he learnt that he was suffering from of Wife Burning Essay tuberculosis. At a time when antibiotic treatment was not yet available, it was a disease that could easily be fatal. In fact Powys lived on another 30 years, never free of sickness, but determined to make the best of a life that would always be in danger. Entering a Swiss sanatorium in 1910 for just over introduction to digital, a year, he used his time there to village throw off the timid morality in which he had been reared. Risking his health, he enjoyed many erotic encounters with other inmates. In a diary he kept, he recorded a haemorrhage that almost killed him, marking the episode in introduction to digital technology, his own blood. As he wrote later in a memoir of his illness: Presently, with the about ChaucerвЂ™s The Canterbury, pretty egotism of introduction youth, I dipped my fountain pen into the basin at my bedside and scratched a red cross on my diary, a cross such as a tramp might have made who could not sign his name, and yet who wanted to record some important event in his wayfaring.
A month later, when he had recovered, he was once again risking his life in dalliances with fellow patients. In 1914, Powys left for East Africa, where he spent five years working with one of his brothers as a sheep farmer. The harsh realities of life in of Wife Burning in India Essay, the bush fortified his brand of atheism. Writing after his return, he declared that Africa laps up the life-blood of all the delicate illusions that have for so long danced before the eyes of men and made them happy. Truth alone is left alive. What was suspected in Europe is made plain here… the surface is everything, underneath is nothing. He wasn't disconcerted at this discovery. He was clear that human life had no intrinsic meaning or purpose, but that only made him all the to digital technology, more determined to savour the sensation of being alive. As a freelance writer he was never financially secure and often hard-up.
But accompanied in later years by his devoted partner Alyse Gregory he travelled widely, visiting the of the following direct variance?, West Indies, Palestine, America and Capri, among other places. To Digital Technology? Powys chose to live as a hedonist. Always close to death, he aimed to heighten the Purple Essay, sensation of life. He attached as much importance to the contemplation of landscape and wild animals as he did to sexual pleasure. His essays are full of images of natural beauty - a hare drinking from a small pond, fox cubs playing at dawn on the Dorset cliffs. A week before he died of a perforated ulcer in introduction, Switzerland in December 1939, he wrote to a friend: I have had a happy life for half a century in sunshine. The two atheists I've discussed were very different from one another. Where Leopardi accepted a godless universe with tranquil resignation, Powys embraced it with exultant joy. But for both of them, religion was much more than an outdated theory. If Leopardi believed religion of one sort or another was beneficial for human happiness, Powys valued religion as a kind of poetry, which fortified the human spirit in the face of death. But each of these atheists was also very different from most of the unbelievers of recent years.
The predominant strand of village house contemporary unbelief, which aims to convert the world to a scientific view of introduction to digital technology things, is only one way of living without an idea of aztec God. It's worth looking back to other kinds of atheism, far richer and subtler than the version we're familiar with, that aren't just evangelical religion turned upside down. We asked for your comments. To Digital? Here is Essay a selection of those received: My late husband for most of his life regarded himself as an introduction to digital atheist. He was an engineer working in the defence field. Whilst he regarded his view as being the correct view, he always and without exception respected the right of others to hold a different view. Perhaps this attitude should be expressed in aztec and spanish, all religions and avoid many of the religion-based problems seen in to digital technology, the world today. In his latter months (he died of cancer last year) he changed his view and found a faith - as often happens when people are seriously ill.
I'm an atheist, though I do like to believe that this isn't all to our life. Our body goes back to the earth/nutrients it came from when we die but what of our 'soul' or personality. Purple Essay? It boggles my mind thinking of our universe and what we still don't know. Though I don't believe in any God and have no appreciation for people who twist the stories and teachings of technology their faith to hurt or abuse anything they don't agree with I'm not against religions. I'm always willing to listen and Color, learn from other beliefs and views. Some people find peace in 'finding' and to digital, loving their God and I can completely appreciate that. I just can't stand the twisted sides of some religions where it is the 'human' aspect that spreads hate, intolerance and bigotry. I think everyone should be allowed to of Leadership believe in what they want as long as their actions as a result harm no one.
Please don't forget that you only hear the noisy atheists. To Digital? Atheism is an absence of belief, therefore there is nothing to pakistani village say. I suspect the vast majority of atheists go about their daily lives never thinking of their atheism still less talking about it. As much as I don't like the label, Atheism is simply the rejection of a claim that god/gods exist. It's very important to note, this isn't the introduction, exact opposite village, position, which is to believe there isn't a god, or gods.
For this reason, Theism is a belief system, and Atheism is not. To Digital Technology? As a lifelong atheist, I think I was born without a God 'spot', I have no problem with the religious beliefs of others. The Tradition In India? In fact I sometimes envy them. Introduction? It would be nice to about The Distribution of Leadership believe there was something else after death. To Digital Technology? It seems to me that being an atheist is an act of faith. The universe is vast, and humans inhabit just one small planet. To declare that nowhere out there are there beings that would match the definition of god must be an act of Purple Essay faith because it cannot be based on actual knowledge of the situation.
To go further, that act of faith is in some ways greater than that of religious believers. Christians, and technology, probably the members of other religions, tell of having felt they are in contact with god. It may happen often or it may be rare, but it helps to sustain their faith. However, the atheist can never hope to be contacted by someone who says You're right, I don't exist, and aztec, their faith will never receive that sustaining support. A Point of View is broadcast on to digital, Fridays on Radio 4 at 20:50 BST and repeated Sundays 08:50 BST.

CTAE: Marsh, Maxine / Introduction to Digital Technology
Sample Essay Responses and Rater Commentary for the Argument Task. The sample essays that follow were written in response to the prompt that appears below . The rater commentary that follows each sample essay explains how the response meets the technology, criteria for that score. For a more complete understanding of the criteria for each score point, see the which a reason for a direct materials, Analyze an Argument Scoring Guide. In surveys Mason City residents rank water sports (swimming, boating and introduction to digital technology fishing) among their favorite recreational activities. The Mason River flowing through the city is rarely used for these pursuits, however, and the city park department devotes little of Essay, its budget to maintaining riverside recreational facilities.
For years there have been complaints from introduction residents about the quality of the river's water and the river's smell. In response, the state has recently announced plans to clean up Mason River. Use of the river for The Tradition of Wife Burning in India water sports is technology therefore sure to increase. The city government should for that reason devote more money in this year's budget to riverside recreational facilities. Write a response in Purple which you examine the stated and/or unstated assumptions of the argument.
Be sure to explain how the introduction to digital technology, argument depends on the assumptions and aztec and spanish what the implications are if the assumptions prove unwarranted. Note: All responses are reproduced exactly as written, including errors, misspellings, etc., if any. While it may be true that the Mason City government ought to introduction to digital technology, devote more money to riverside recreational facilities, this author's argument does not make a cogent case for increased resources based on The Tradition of Wife Burning river use. It is easy to understand why city residents would want a cleaner river, but this argument is rife with holes and assumptions, and thus, not strong enough to lead to increased funding. Citing surveys of city residents, the author reports city resident's love of water sports. It is not clear, however, the scope and introduction validity of that survey. For example, the survey could have asked residents if they prefer using the river for water sports or would like to see a hydroelectric dam built, which may have swayed residents toward river sports. The sample may not have been representative of city residents, asking only those residents who live upon the river. The survey may have been 10 pages long, with 2 questions dedicated to river sports. We just do not know. Unless the survey is fully representative, valid, and reliable, it can not be used to effectively back the author's argument.
Additionally, the author implies that residents do not use the river for swimming, boating, and fishing, despite their professed interest, because the water is polluted and Corruption and Hypocrisy in Geoffrey ChaucerвЂ™s The Canterbury Tales smelly. While a polluted, smelly river would likely cut down on river sports, a concrete connection between the introduction technology, resident's lack of Corruption and Hypocrisy The Canterbury Tales, river use and the river's current state is not effectively made. Though there have been complaints, we do not know if there have been numerous complaints from a wide range of people, or perhaps from introduction technology one or two individuals who made numerous complaints. To strengthen his/her argument, the author would benefit from Burning in India implementing a normed survey asking a wide range of residents why they do not currently use the river. Building upon the implication that residents do not use the river due to the quality of the introduction to digital, river's water and the smell, the author suggests that a river clean up will result in increased river usage. If the river's water quality and smell result from The Tradition of Wife problems which can be cleaned, this may be true. For example, if the decreased water quality and aroma is caused by pollution by introduction factories along the river, this conceivably could be remedied.
But if the quality and Essay about of Leadership aroma results from the natural mineral deposits in the water or surrounding rock, this may not be true. There are some bodies of water which emit a strong smell of sulphur due to the geography of the area. This is not something likely to be afffected by to digital technology a clean-up. Consequently, a river clean up may have no impact upon Essay about Corruption in Geoffrey ChaucerвЂ™s Tales river usage. Regardless of whether the river's quality is able to be improved or not, the author does not effectively show a connection between water quality and introduction technology river usage. A clean, beautiful, safe river often adds to a city's property values, leads to increased tourism and revenue from aztec and spanish those who come to take advantage of the river, and to digital technology a better overall quality of life for residents. For these reasons, city government may decide to invest in improving riverside recreational facilities. However, this author's argument is not likely significantly persuade the city goverment to allocate increased funding. Rater Commentary for Essay Response Score 6. This insightful response identifies important assumptions and thoroughly examines their implications. The essay shows that the Essay, proposal to spend more on riverside recreational facilities rests on three questionable assumptions, namely: that the introduction technology, survey provides a reliable basis for budget planning that the river’s pollution and odor are the only reasons for its limited recreational use that efforts to clean the Color Purple Essay, water and remove the odor will be successful.
By showing that each assumption is to digital technology highly suspect, this essay demonstrates the weakness of the entire argument. For example, paragraph 2 points out that the survey might not have used a representative sample, might have offered limited choices, and might have contained very few questions on water sports. Paragraph 3 examines the tenuous connection between complaints and limited use of the river for recreation. Complaints about water quality and odor may be coming from only a few people and, even if such complaints are numerous, other completely different factors may be much more significant in reducing river usage. Finally, paragraph 4 explains that certain geologic features may prevent effective river clean-up. Details such as these provide compelling support. In addition, careful organization ensures that each new point builds upon the previous ones. For example, note the clear transitions at the beginning of paragraphs 3 and pakistani house 4, as well as the logical sequence of sentences within paragraphs (specifically paragraph 4).
Although this essay does contain minor errors, it still conveys ideas fluently. Introduction! Note the effective word choices (e.g., rife with . Of Leadership! . . assumptions and may have swayed residents). In addition, sentences are not merely varied; they also display skillful embedding of introduction technology, subordinate elements. Since this response offers cogent examination of the Essay about and Hypocrisy Tales, argument and conveys meaning skillfully, it earns a score of 6. The author of this proposal to increase the budget for Mason City riverside recreational facilities offers an interesting argument but to introduction to digital, move forward on Essay about Corruption and Hypocrisy The Canterbury the proposal would definitely require more information and thought.
While the correlations stated are logical and probable, there may be hidden factors that prevent the City from introduction technology diverting resources to this project. For example, consider the survey rankings among Mason City residents. The Tradition In India! The thought is that such high regard for water sports will translate into introduction to digital usage. But, survey responses can hardly be used as indicators of actual behavior. Many surveys conducted after the winter holidays reveal people who list exercise and weight loss as a top priority. And Spanish! Yet every profession does not equal a new gym membership. Even the to digital, wording of the survey results remain ambiguous and vague. While water sports may be among the residents' favorite activities, this allows for many other favorites.
What remains unknown is the priorities of the general public. Do they favor these water sports above a softball field or soccer field? Are they willing to pakistani house, sacrifice the municipal golf course for better riverside facilities? Indeed the survey hardly provides enough information to discern future use of introduction technology, improved facilities. Closely linked to the surveys is the bold assumption that a cleaner river will result in The Distribution increased usage. While it is not illogical to introduction, expect some increase, at what level will people begin to use the Essay about The Distribution, river? The answer to this question requires a survey to find out the reasons our residents use or do not use the river. Is river water quality the primary limiting factor to usage or the lack of docks and piers?
Are people more interested in to digital water sports than the recreational activities that they are already engaged in? These questions will help the city government forecast how much river usage will increase and to assign a proportional increase to which of the for a direct materials variance?, the budget. Likewise, the author is optimistic regarding the state promise to clean the river. Introduction To Digital Technology! We need to hear the source of the voices and Corruption ChaucerвЂ™s The Canterbury Tales consider any ulterior motives. Is this a campaign year and the plans a campaign promise from the state representative? What is the timeline for the clean-up effort? Will the state fully fund this project? We can imagine the to digital technology, misuse of funds in renovating the riverside facilities only to watch the village, new buildings fall into dilapidation while the state drags the river clean-up. Last, the author does not consider where these additional funds will be diverted from. The current budget situation must be assessed to determine if this increase can be afforded. In a sense, the City may not be willing to draw money away from other key projects from road improvements to schools and to digital technology education.
The author naively assumes that the money can simply appear without forethought on where it will come from. Examining all the and spanish, various angles and factors involved with improving riverside recreational facilities, the argument does not justify increasing the budget. While the proposal does highlight a possibility, more information is required to warrant any action. Rater Commentary for Essay Response Score 5. Each paragraph in to digital the body of this perceptive essay identifies and examines an unstated assumption that is crucial to the argument. The major assumptions discussed are: that a survey can accurately predict behavior that cleaning the river will, in itself, increase recreational usage that state plans to clean the river will actually be realized that Mason City can afford to spend more on riverside recreational facilities. Support within each paragraph is both thoughtful and thorough. Essay! For example, paragraph 2 points out vagueness in the wording of the introduction technology, survey: Even if water sports rank among the favorite recreational activities of Mason City residents, other sports may still be much more popular. The Tradition Of Wife Burning Essay! Thus, if the first assumption proves unwarranted, the argument to fund riverside facilities rather than soccer fields or golf courses becomes much weaker.
Paragraph 4 considers several reasons why river clean-up plans may not be successful (the plans may be nothing more than campaign promises or funding may not be adequate). Thus, the weakness of the introduction to digital, third assumption undermines the argument that river recreation will increase and riverside improvements will be needed at all. Instead of dismissing each assumption in isolation, this response places them in Essay The Canterbury a logical order and considers their connections. Note the appropriate transitions between and within paragraphs, clarifying the links among the assumptions (e.g., Closely linked to the surveys or The answer to this question requires. ). Along with strong development, this response also displays facility with language. Minor errors in punctuation are present, but word choices are apt and sentences suitably varied in introduction technology pattern and length.
The response uses a number of about in Geoffrey The Canterbury Tales, rhetorical questions, but the implied answers are always clear enough to support the points being made. Thus, the introduction to digital technology, response satisfies all requirements for a score of 5, but its development is Essay and Hypocrisy ChaucerвЂ™s not thorough or compelling enough for a 6. The problem with the to digital, arguement is the assumption that if the Mason River were cleaned up, that people would use it for water sports and about The Distribution of Leadership recreation. This is technology not necessarily true, as people may rank water sports among their favorite recreational activities, but that does not mean that those same people have the financial ability, time or equipment to pursue those interests. However, even if the writer of the arguement is correct in assuming that the Mason River will be used more by the city's residents, the arguement does not say why the recreational facilities need more money. If recreational facilities already exist along the Mason River, why should the city allot more money to Essay Corruption and Hypocrisy ChaucerвЂ™s The Canterbury Tales, fund them? If the introduction to digital, recreational facilities already in existence will be used more in the coming years, then they will be making more money for themselves, eliminating the need for the city government to devote more money to them. According to the arguement, the reason people are not using the Mason River for water sports is because of the smell and the quality of water, not because the recreational facilities are unacceptable.
If the city government alloted more money to the recreational facilities, then the budget is being cut from which of the following a reason for a materials variance? some other important city project. Also, if the assumptions proved unwarranted, and more people did not use the to digital, river for Color Purple Essay recreation, then much money has been wasted, not only the money for the recreational facilities, but also the money that was used to clean up the river to attract more people in the first place. Rater Commentary for Essay Response Score 4. This competent response identifies two unstated assumptions: that cleaning up the Mason River will lead to increased recreational use that existing facilities along the river need more funding. Paragraph 1 offers reasons why the first assumption is questionable (e.g., residents may not have the necessary time or money for water sports).
Similarly, paragraphs 2 and to digital 3 explain that riverside recreational facilities may already be adequate and may, in fact, produce additional income if usage increases. Thus, the The Tradition Burning, response is adequately developed and satisfactorily organized to show how the argument depends on questionable assumptions. However, this essay does not rise to to digital, a score of Color Purple Essay, 5 because it fails to consider several other unstated assumptions (e.g., that the survey is reliable or that the efforts to clean the river will be successful). Furthermore, the final paragraph makes some extraneous, unsupported assertions of introduction technology, its own. Mason City may actually have a budget surplus so that cuts to other projects will not be necessary, and of the for a direct materials variance? cleaning the river may provide other real benefits even if it is to digital not used more for and spanish water sports. This response is generally free of errors in grammar and usage and displays sufficient control of language to introduction, support a score of 4. Surveys are created to aztec, speak for the people; however, surveys do not always speak for the whole community. A survey completed by Mason City residents concluded that the residents enjoy water sports as a form of recreation. If that is so evident, why has the river not been used? The blame can not be soley be placed on the city park department. The city park department can only do as much as they observe.
The real issue is technology not the residents use of the river, but their desire for a more pleasant smell and a more pleasant sight. If the city government cleans the of the is not a reason for a quantity, river, it might take years for the smell to go away. If the budget is changed to to digital technology, accomodate the clean up of the Mason River, other problems will arise. The residents will then begin to complain about other issues in their city that will be ignored because of the ChaucerвЂ™s, great emphasis being placed on introduction to digital technology Mason River. If more money is Essay about and Hypocrisy in Geoffrey ChaucerвЂ™s Tales taken out of the budget to clean the river an introduction assumption can be made. This assumption is that the budget for another part of cit maintenance or building will be tapped into of Wife Burning in India to. In addition, to introduction technology, the budget being used to clean up Mason River, it will also be allocated in increasing riverside recreational facilites.
The government is trying to and spanish, appease its residents, and one can warrant that the role of the government is to please the people. There are many assumptions being made; however, the government can not make the technology, assumption that people want the aztec, river to be cleaned so that they can use it for recreational water activities. The government has to realize the long term effects that their decision will have on the monetary value of their budget. Rater Commentary for Essay Response Score 3. Even though much of this essay is tangential, it offers some relevant examination of the argument’s assumptions. The early sentences mention a questionable assumption (that the survey results are reliable) but do not explain how the introduction technology, survey might have been flawed. Then the response drifts to irrelevant matters a defense of the city park department, a prediction of budget problems and the problem of pleasing city residents. Some statements even introduce unwarranted assumptions that are not part of the original argument (e.g., The residents will then begin to complain about other issues and This assumption is that the budget for another part of city maintenance or building will be tapped into). Near the The Tradition of Wife Essay, end, the response does correctly note that city government should not assume that residents want to to digital technology, use the river for recreation. Hence, the proposal to increase funding for aztec riverside recreational facilities may not be justified. In summary, the language in technology this response is reasonably clear, but its examination of unstated assumptions remains limited and therefore earns a score of 3.
This statement looks like logical, but there are some wrong sentences in it which is not logical. First, this statement mentions raking water sports as their favorite recreational activities at the first sentence. However, it seems to have a ralation between the first sentence and aztec and spanish the setence which mentions that increase the quality of the river's water and the river's smell. Introduction To Digital! This is a wrong cause and result to solve the problem. Second, as a reponse to Color Purple Essay, the complaints from residents, the introduction, state plan to clean up the which following for a materials, river. As a result, the state expects that water sports will increase. When you look at introduction, two sentences, the result is not appropriate for the cause.
Third, the last statement is the conclusion. However, even though residents rank water sports, the city government might devote the budget to another issue. This statement is also a wrong cause and result. In summary, the statement is not logical because there are some errors in it. The supporting setences are not strong enough to support this issue. Rater Commentary for Essay Response Score 2. Although this essay appears to be carefully organized, it does not follow the following is not for a quantity, directions for the assigned task.
In his/her vague references to causal fallacies, the writer attempts logical analysis but never refers to any unstated assumptions. Furthermore, several errors in grammar and sentence structure interfere with meaning (e.g., This statement looks like logical, but there are some wrong sentences in it which is not logical). Because this response does not follow the directions for to digital the assigned task and contains errors in Essay about The Distribution sentence structure and logical development, it earns a score of 2. The statement assumes that everyone in Mason City enjoys some sort of introduction to digital technology, recreational activity, which may not be necessarily true. The statement also assumes that if the state cleans up the river, the use of the river for water sports will definitely increase. Rater Commentary for of Wife Burning Essay Response Score 1. The brevity of introduction technology, this two-sentence response makes it fundamentally deficient. Sentence 1 states an assumption that is actually not present in the argument, and sentence 2 correctly states an assumption but provides no discussion of of Leadership, its implications. Although the response may begin to address the assigned task, it offers no development. As such, it is clearly extremely brief . providing little evidence of an organized response and earns a score of 1.

The design is narrative text, written in Arabic and excerpted from Essaydi#8217;s personal journal in which she considers and reconsiders her experience as a woman, Muslim, Arab, and African. Although she remains behind the camera, these photographs constitute an intimate portrait of the artist. While the photographs provide a space for pakistani village Essaydi to voice her own reflections, they are not uniquely personal; they also represent a narrative shared by women with similar understandings of Islamic heritage, cultural mobility, and gender identity. Indeed, Essaydi considers this work a collaborative endeavor undertaken with the Moroccan women who pose for introduction to digital technology her photographs. The images are captured after hours of preparation. As the Color Purple models and backdrops are painted with henna, the artist and her collaborators engage in a lively exchange, recounting memories and experiences of being women of Moroccan heritage. The images, then, depict women in repose, caught in moments of quietude, rather than immutably silenced. Essaydi#8217;s photographs reverberate with their conversations, past and present. The serenity and elegance of these photographs belie their subversive nature. Essaydi transgresses gender stereotypes by using calligraphy, a sacred Islamic art form traditionally reserved for men.
Even more, she expresses herself through calligraphic script, rather than writing in introduction to digital technology, the service and spirit of the Qur#8217;an, the Muslim holy book, as convention dictates. Subjecting text and content to her will, the artist employs writing as a delicate act of defiance against The Tradition in India a culture in which women have been relegated to the private sphere. Essaydi#8217;s photographic work challenges conventions of space in multiple ways. This is clearly the case with respect to Islamic cultures in which religion has historically dictated spatial boundaries for men and women. The presence of men defines public venues, streets, and meeting places, while women have customarily been confined to private spaces, though this is increasingly contested by women throughout the Muslim world. The artist also challenges the expectations of viewers, who rely on the clear juxtaposition of to digital, positive and negative space and on village house, depth of field as primary points of orientation.
This is seldom possible in Essaydi#8217;s photographs in which spatial relationships are obscured by script. Instead, the writing serves as the defining element of the to digital composition, constituting the foreground, background, and subject. The artist removes all allusions to clearly recognizable architectural elements, and substitutes her signature use of hennainscribed cloth. What remains is, quite simply, space. In Essaydi#8217;s work, it is rarely defined except by the presence of the women who inhabit it. She lures viewers in and, once they are engaged, compels them to make sense of the scene. Aztec And Spanish. The ambiguous space of the photographs resonates with Essaydi#8217;s personal experience and, perhaps, her frame of mind. Relocating multiple times during her lifetime has required multiple reinventions of self, particularly when cultures are crossed, children are raised, and time has passed.
The space the artist occupies, then, is ill defined, located between cultures, traditions, and histories. These works, abstracted from a definitive place, conjure the distance between the to digital artist and her homeland. Aztec And Spanish. In Morocco, women have traditionally been expected to introduction to digital technology, remain indoors at most times, and those who transgressed rules of gender conduct have sometimes been subjected to more extreme confinement, a practice only recently abandoned. For the Converging Territories series, the artist revisited a large, unoccupied, familyowned house in Morocco where women who defied traditional gender roles were secluded from others.

In the act of taking it over, she literally redressed it through careful staging. She reversed the connotation of these spaces, transforming them into a place where women are seen, not hidden. Especially when Essaydi#8217;s work is understood as a collaboration between the artist and her models, this site becomes a place of about Corruption The Canterbury Tales, intimate dialogue and introduction expression, where voices are unleashed rather than muted. Converging Territories #32, 2004. Chromogenic print on aluminum, 48 x 58-1/8 inches. Courtesy of the artist and Edwynn Houk Gallery, New York. Essaydi#8217;s distinctive artistic process is indebted to Moroccan wedding customs, which include adorning women#8217;s bodies during the Night of the Henna, an elaborate celebration that is pakistani village, a prelude to the wedding itself. On the introduction eve of her marriage, the following is not variance? bride and her female friends and family members come together to apply henna to to digital, her hands and feet in intricate designs. In the Apparel stilllifephotographs of the Converging Territories series, instead of ornamenting women#8217;s bodies and skin, Essaydi writes upon objects that are customary wedding gifts, such as flowers, eggs, and sugar.
In the about and Hypocrisy in Geoffrey The Canterbury Tales context of introduction, Essaydi#8217;s larger body of work, in which women#8217;s bodies are so inscribed, the The Tradition of Wife gifts associated with the bride invoke her presence.

In Les Femmes du Maroc, Essaydi once again stages Moroccan women in enigmatic spaces awash with text. Which Of The Following Is Not A Reason Direct Quantity Variance?. Rather than taking a site from introduction her past as a point of departure, in this more recent series she engages the imaginary spaces of specific nineteenthcentury Orientalist paintings in which European artists rendered their romanticized impressions of the Islamic world. The name Essaydi has given the series, Les Femmes du Maroc, is itself a play on the title Les Femmes d#8217;Algiers (1834), a wellknown painting by the French Romantic artist Eugène Delacroix. Les Femmes du Maroc: Harem Woman #1, 2008.
Chromogenic print on aluminum, 40 x 30 inches. Courtesy of the aztec and spanish artist and Edwynn Houk Gallery, New York. Introduction To Digital Technology. Essaydi recasts each painting, stripping it of nearly all decoration and affectation. She removes the Essay Corruption The Canterbury Tales opulent color, the elaborate décor, and the male figures that occupy European Orientalist paintings so that, in to digital technology, her own work, women and their gestures become the sole focal point. Rather than simply replicating the centuriesold Western tradition of is not direct materials quantity variance?, exoticizing the Eastern #8220;other#8221; and the female body, the artist inserts her own narrative#8212;literally and introduction to digital figuratively#8212;into the images, thereby inviting viewers to reconsider mythologies of an imaginary notion of the Orient. More than simply cultural critique#8212;whether of Arabic, Islamic, or EuroAmerican narratives#8212;Essaydi subverts the terms of those cultures by aztec and spanish appropriating their visual vocabularies.

In one of her signature images from the series, Essaydi reinterprets La Grande Odalisque (1814) by JeanAugusteDominique Ingres; her rendition now resides in the collection of the Musée du Louvre in Paris along with the of Wife Burning in India Essay original painting.
By appropriating this imagery, Essaydi directly confronts the introduction manner in which Orientalist paintings have fostered monolithic stereotypes of the Islamic world as exotic, sublime, sensual, and remote. Established during the pakistani house nineteenth century, these deeply entrenched misconceptions persist and remain highly charged in the twentyfirst century. Introduction To Digital.

Together, the works in this exhibition demonstrate the artist#8217;s critical exploration of Color, themes addressing women, space, and memory. While deeply engaged with varied histories, Essaydi#8217;s work is indelibly linked to her own experience and introduction technology bears witness to Burning, her ongoing interrogation of conventional distinctions#8212;women and men, public and private, past and present, self and to digital other, memory and imagination#8212;that beg to be reexamined and reformed.

Details also help us visualize the emotions of the about The Distribution of Leadership people in the scene.
