Coleridge and Kant: Significant Parallels and Contrasts in Ethical and Religious Ideas

Coleridge and Kant: Significant Parallels and Contrasts in Ethical and Religious Ideas

Date: August 1969
Creator: Carr, Barbara C.
Description: One notes that Kant's philosophy became a part of Coleridge's thinking, and his devotion to its principle intensified through the years. Although Kant influenced Coleridge's aesthetics greatly, significant parallels between Kant's moral and ethical principles and Coleridge's religious doctrines are evidence of distinct influence. Particularly interesting are the views these two men had on the being and nature of God; on sin, salvation, and redemption; and on the various aspects of religion and faith.

The Comic Element in the Novels of Thomas Wolfe

The Comic Element in the Novels of Thomas Wolfe

Date: 1957
Creator: Hanig, David Daniel
Description: As to form, Wolfe's novels are deliberately loose, because that is important to his purpose. Conceiving America as an open society of potentiality, he could do no less than remain open himself. To do otherwise would have meant impotence if not sterility. In this thesis, I shall attempt to show that the episodes, divergences, and observations all illustrate and amplify this spiritual growth.

A Comparison of Christopher Marlowe's Edward II and William Shakespeare's Richard II

A Comparison of Christopher Marlowe's Edward II and William Shakespeare's Richard II

Date: January 1960
Creator: Ford, Howard Lee
Description: This study purports to examine several areas of similarity between the chronicle history plays by Christopher Marlowe and William Shakespeare. Edward II and Richard II are alike in many ways, most strikingly in the similarity of the stories themselves. But this is a superficial likeness, for there are many other likenesses--in purpose, in artistry, in language--which demonstrate more clearly than the parallel events of history the remarkable degree to which these plays resemble each other.

A Comparison of Morris' News from Nowhere and Life in the Twin Oaks Community

A Comparison of Morris' News from Nowhere and Life in the Twin Oaks Community

Date: December 2007
Creator: Garner, Royce Clifton
Description: It is the purpose of this paper to explore how Morris' novel relates to life in Twin Oaks, primarily as depicted in two books: Living the Dream (1983) by Ingrid Komar, a long-term visitor to the commune and Kinkade's Is It Utopia Yet? (1996). This comparison will demonstrate that the experiences of contemporary intentional communities such as Twin Oaks provide a meaningful context for reading News from Nowhere because of the similarities in goals and philosophy. It will further demonstrate that though Twin Oaks was originally inspired by a utopian novel much more in the tradition of Bellamy's work than Morris', the community's subsequent evolution has brought it much closer in philosophy to News from Nowhere than Looking Backward.

The concept of dignity in the early science fiction novels of Kurt Vonnegut.

The concept of dignity in the early science fiction novels of Kurt Vonnegut.

Access: Use of this item is restricted to the UNT Community.
Date: May 2003
Creator: Dye, Scott Allen
Description: Kurt Vonnegut's early science fiction novels depict societies and characters that, as in the real world, have become callous and downtrodden. These works use supercomputers, aliens, and space travel, often in a comical manner, to demonstrate that the future, unless people change their concepts of humanity, will not be the paradise of advanced technology and human harmony that some may expect. In fact, Vonnegut suggests that the human condition may gradually worsen if people continue to look further and further into the universe for happiness and purpose. To Vonnegut, the key to happiness is dignity, and this key is to be found within ourselves, not without.

The Concept of the Ennobling Power of Love in Shakespeare's Love Tragedies

The Concept of the Ennobling Power of Love in Shakespeare's Love Tragedies

Date: January 1968
Creator: Fort, Barbara Jean
Description: This study proposes to demonstrate that the Platonic doctrine of the ennobling power of love is of paramount importance in a number of Shakespeare's plays. This study has been limited to the three love tragedies because in them the ennobling power of love is a major theme, affecting both the characters and the plot structure. The plays to be studied are Romeo and Juliet, Troilus and Cressida, and Antony and Cleopatra.
