Soul as 3-Part Partition

In an attempt to illustrate that the soul, much like the city Socrates describes earlier in the book, is partitioned into three parts, Socrates presents his arguments in three logical steps. He firstly establishes the assumption that the same thing cannot undergo opposite things. Then, he demonstrates that the soul must contain at least two parts, namely the appetitive and the rationally calculating. Lastly, he demonstrates that the spirited part must be different from both of those, thereby proving the tri-constituent structure of the soul.

First, Socrates tackles the question of whether we do everything with the whole of our soul or distinct parts by stating a fundamental premise upon which all subsequent arguments are built. This states that the same thing cannot undergo opposite forces or be in opposite states at the same time in the same respect. More concretely, Socrates gives an example of a person not being able to be standing still and moving with respect to the same frame of reference simultaneously. Recognizing the generality of this argument, he then hypothesizes the correctness of the premise by further listing a string of opposites, including dissent versus assent and wishing versus not-wishing.

Building off of the aforementioned premise, Socrates advances his argument by elucidating the distinction between a natural object by itself and an object of a particular sort. For instance, he argues that thirst, in its independent form, causes people to crave drink. However, when a drink with particular attributes, such as a hot drink, is desired, there must exists a different appetite which depends on the addition of those attributes. Observing Glaucon’s lingering confusion, Socrates offers another example in relation to the concept of knowledge. He argues that the natural object of knowledge is of what can be learned by itself but when in practice…...

Networking hardware is hardware that is used to help work stations connect to a server. What will be used on the wireless network will be the WPA2 encryption standard, Special hardware will be implemented when using WPA2 to work properly. The hardware that will be chosen would be routers, and switches. By using both along with firewall protection it will help protect not only the network but those networks that use Ethernet cabling. Each desktop will run Norton Anti-Virus. Norton will run the update programs automatically whenever there is an update to be made. This software along with the firewall will keep Kudler’s Fine Foods network safe and secure. Security Concerns Security should be the top priority for the network within an organization, and for the growth of the business. One of the concerns would be the mobile devices on the network. Smartphones and IPhone are effectively small computers and face many of those same threats that personal computers or laptops risk for those organizations. One thing that Kudler’s Fine Foods should install would be Norton Mobile Security. This offers an advance antitheft feature that will let you remotely lock your phone if it is lost or stolen, remotely erase sensitive information, block fraudulent websites......

En1420 Project Part 3

...Project Part 3 Michael Sherman EN1420 For a working woman, maternity leave is a standard part of giving birth. Physically, the new mother needs that time to recover from the birthing process, but there is an emotional reason, too. Experts preach over and over that for those first few weeks of a baby’s life, it needs the interaction and touch of its mother to help with bonding to start their development on the right track. Shouldn’t the father be part of that process as well? Shouldn’t the father of the new child be able to take paternity leave from work? I believe they should, not only to bond with the child, but to help the mother with her recovery and to coordinate visitors, appointments and any errands that may be needed. Some people have a stigma that the mother is the one responsible for raising the child from birth. I respectfully disagree. I believe the father should be as much a part of a baby’s first weeks as the mother. Why should a father be robbed of the intimate bonding time with his child just because he didn’t physically give birth to them? I feel this would help the father take better care of the child when the mother returns to work, especially if the father is home at different times than the mother. Having time at home bonding with their father will help the child recognize him when their mother is not around and put them at ease. Studies have also shown that fathers who are home on paternity leave are more likely to be directly involved......

Plato’s Argument for Three Parts of the Soul

...Introduction Plato argues that the soul comprises of three parts namely rational, appetitive, and the spirited. These parts also match up the three ranks of a just community. Personal justice involves maintaining the three parts in the proper balance, where reason rules while appetite obeys. According to Plato, the appetitive part of the soul is the one that is accountable for the desires in people. It is accountable for the effortless cravings required to stay alive like hunger, thirst, and for pointless cravings like desire to over feed. The desires for essential things should be limited by other sections of the soul, while illegitimate desires ought to be limited entirely by other elements of soul. The rational soul on the other hand is the thinking element in every human being, which decided what is factual and merely obvious, judges what is factual and what is untrue, and intelligently makes sensible decisions. Finally, the spirited soul produces the desires that love victory and honor. In the just soul, the spirit acts as an implementer of the rational soul, making sure that the rules of reason are adhered to. Emotions like indignation and anger are the impact of the disappointment of the spirit. Someone might respond to the claim that the soul comprises of three parts. Argument Plato argued that a community has three parts which are guardians, producers, and soldiers and each part performs a particular function. For a community to be just, every element has...

The excitement is getting to know the staff, their duties, and to watch them work a full house, as well as entertaining friends at Club IT. The overwhelming part is all the information and ideas that needs integrated and implemented into this club. As an intern hired to complete the needs of Club IT, the major focus is helping Ruben and Lisa expand, maintain, and continue to build its client list. Club IT is a nightclub of music and dance. Ruben Keys, a drummer and Lisa Tejada, a jazz violinist, both graduates with Business Administration degrees, decided to own and operate a nightclub ("Club It", 2000-2013).

Fallacy Exercises, Part 3

...Fallacy Exercises, part 3 I. Identify the fallacies committed by the following arguments, giving a brief explanation for your answer. If no fallacy is committed, write "no fallacy." NOTE: If an argument is followed by “IGNORE” it is an eample that we didn’t cover and you are not responsible for it. 1. Either we require forced sterilization of Third World peoples or world popula¬tion will explode and all of us will die. We certainly don't want to die, so we must require forced sterilization. False Dichotomy. These aren’t the only two possibilities. People could control the population by other means. 2. James said that he saw a picture of a beautiful girl stashed in Stephen's locker. We can only conclude that Stephen has broken the rules, because girls are not allowed in the locker room. Accident – the rule applies to real girls, not pictures of girls. 3. Why is it so difficult for you to reach a decision? Complex Question. The thing being assumed is that it is difficult for the person to reach a decision. 4. People who lack humility have no sense of beauty because everyone who has a sense of beauty also has humility. Circular argument. The conclusion says nothing different than the premise. 5. Butane is combustible. Therefore, it burns. Circular argument. “Combustible” means “burns”. 6. Honey, this postcard just arrived, and it says we have won a free airline trip.

Decisions in Paradise Part 3

...Decisions in Paradise Part 3 Cindy Chastain MGT/350 February 5, 2011 George Beaini Decisions in Paradise Part 3 In my first analysis it was realized that Kava had been demolished by a series of different disasters. It was urgent to identify the specific needs of Kava’s residents. I had recently graduated college and as my first assignment I was given a life changing challenge. Kava was in need of survival education. The Educational Company was sent to Kava by the Red Cross Organization to help educate the civilians in disaster survival. Kava had been hit by tsunamis and earthquakes, which led to disease and death. My second analysis I performed a Strength, Weakness, Opportunity, and Threats (SWOT) analysis. It was discovered in the SWOT analysis that communication would be a major weakness. This was a situation which could be resolved. The communication weakness was a non-critical, but urgent situation. Four years later, 2014, tourism has flourished and the residents of Kava have expanded their survival abilities. The following is a recap of my last four years on Kava. The Evaluation Plan The evaluation plan was to ensure The Educational Company can provide the residents of Kava the education services they needed to survive during and after a disaster. The objectives of the evaluation were to answer the following questions: - Are plan decisions being implemented? • Develop a project team - Is the plan being maintained so that it is a useful......

Business Research Part 3

...Preparing to Conduct Business Research Part 3 One of the most well-known forms of research done for diversity is through the United States Census Bureau. This census provides a statistical outlook of race in the workplace and general population. The information provided gives a breakdown of information regarding race distribution, geographic distribution, race and Hispanic origin data, Asian population growth, and Hispanic population growth. The examination of racial and ethnic group distributions nationally shows that while the non-Hispanic white alone population is still numerically and proportionally the largest major race and ethnic group in the United States, it is also growing at the slowest rate. Conversely, the Hispanic and Asian populations have grown considerably, in part because of relatively higher levels of immigration. Individuals were first presented with the option to self-identify with more than one race in the 2000 Census, and this continued in the 2010 Census. People who identify with more than one race may choose to provide multiple races in response to the race question. The 2010 Census results provide new data on the size and makeup of the nation’s multiracial population. The Census Bureau included a “some other race” category for responses that could not be classified in any of the other race categories on the questionnaire. The vast majority of people who reported only as “some other race” were of Hispanic or Latino origin. Data on......

Project Part 3

...Project Part 3 Task 1: Use a Kernel The recommendation for First World Bank Savings and Loan’s Linux-based infrastructure in to use a vendor supplied kernel. The reason for this is two-fold; Security & Support. Both of which are essential to the daily inter-workings of the bank industry. With the choices of vendors available (Red Hat, Novell, or Canonical/Unbuntu), there are only two that do a great job regarding the customization for enterprise-ready systems; Red Hat and Unbutu. With these distribution-specific kernels, security issues that are related to them vary. With that now mentioned, you may not want to do a recent security update as soon as it comes available, as it may not be needed in your network environment. The main thing that cannot be stress enough (with both vendor –specific distributions & stock kernels) is that updates need to be thoroughly tested within a “test” environment. Prior to testing, a plan needs to be written up and discussed so that all possible threats are exposed to the system, so that these can be confirmed as mitigated. The key is to test, test, & test the updates prior to rolling them out to a production environment. Stock kernel would be the other choice, but it is not recommended due to the amount of information needed to be sorted through for the specific needs of the banking infrastructure, when doing a security update. This would be extremely time-consuming as not all updates are security specific. The individual would need to sort......

Club It Part 3

...Club IT, Part 3 Student Name Axia College of University of Phoenix XBIS 219 Instructor Date Opened in 2005, Club IT has enjoyed success in a business, nightclub, where many fail. This is mostly because of the experience of the owners, Ruben Keys and Lisa Tejada. Both Keys and Tejada graduated from college with degrees in Business Administration and during college they both worked in numerous nightclubs as musicians while attending college. Entertainment at Club IT is all music related with live bands on the weekends and a live DJ on the weekdays. Club IT's customers are mostly tech knowledgeable young adults. Smart phones, tablets, and other forms of wireless communications are part of their everyday lives and they are just as likely to shop online as they are to shop at a brick and mortar business. (Appendix D, n.d.) Also, their customers are frequent visitors to social media sites like Facebook and Youtube. Even though the owners have experience their success is impressive because their information systems are either non existent or out of date. The primary goal of information systems is to process data into information and knowledge. Data is raw information that has not been organized or analyzed. Once data has been organized so it has meaning and value it becomes information. Data and knowledge that has been processed to convey understanding, experience, accumulated learning, and expertise as they apply to a business-related problem is considered......

Club It Part 3

...Final Project: Club IT, Part 3 Wayne G. Hatfield XBIS/219 Shenise L. Soto Club IT, owned by Ruben Keys and Lisa Tejada, is a fresh, hot night club located in the center of downtown Chicago. It is a hotspot for people to come and enjoy food, drinks, and local concerts. When Ruben and Lisa designed this night club, they began to think how they could attract more than just night club customers. By implementing a good ethical standard for new businesses, Ruben and Lisa made this business a Web base business. Customers can register online and place their orders ahead of time. Also they can pre-register for upcoming concerts, upcoming events, and receive a discount. The two owners had many goals for this business when it first opened. One of the many discussions included with the management team and that they were happy with the technology department. However, they would like to see it improve over the next several months. A major concern they had was that they needed to find a better way to run the technology of the building in a faster, more effective way before they could open another building. The vision Ruben has is one day running both buildings on the same technology system. This can be done, however it will take the right team of professionals to implement the programs. Club IT should also have not just one, but multiple computer programs to aid them in running the facility. Different questions could be asked. How does the staff take orders at the bar?
