What Color Line? Discrimination and Ethnic Identity

What Color Line? Discrimination and Ethnic Identity

Date: March 30, 2006
Creator: Jones, Andrew & Nuñez-Janes, Mariela
Description: This paper was written based on an interview with a Hispanic professor. The informant was interviewed about his life, schooling, experiences as a professor, and specifically about being a Hispanic professional in higher education. These experiences are discussed, as well as the question of how discrimination affected the professor's preference for an ethnic label. The most important conclusion of this research is that people who do not experience a sense of feeling different based on their ethnicity are likely to accept a color-blind perspective of society. The paper briefly explores the political implications for people who support this model.

Truth in Context: Nietzsche's Affirmation of Tragic Morality

Truth in Context: Nietzsche's Affirmation of Tragic Morality

Date: April 14, 2011
Creator: Heister, Luke & Yaffe, Martin D.
Description: This paper discusses research on Friedrich Nietzsche's affirmation of tragic morality. In 'Ancient Tragedy and the Origins of Modern Science', Michael Davis states that the "beauty of tragedy is its presentation of the moral necessity of chance" (3). The work of Nietzsche, using metaphor and ambiguous, paradoxical language, can be decoded as a discussion regarding the human desire for, yet inability to reach, autonomy. Nietzsche, though flirting at times with the realization of establishing human autonomy, ultimately affirms the kind of morality relative to the ancient tragedian's worldview. Nietzsche develops this intellectual discussion through the means of conceptual thought experiments and an analysis of mythical archetypes.
