Comparison of Two Texts

English, Not applicable
In a paragraph between 250-300 words, discuss how Foucault’s concept of identity as the “construction of docile bodies” relates to Lorde’s general discussion of patriarchal power on women’s bodies and political concerns. Questions to consider (but not necessary to address): In what ways can Foucault’s notion of institutional power on the routinized body be applied? Foucault is not discussing race or gender, and yet there are clear affinities between his theory and those of Lorde’s regarding the intersections of both—what are these affinities? Is there a point, praxis, or politics to either of these pieces and if so, what is it?

social class in the US

English, Not applicable
 (a) Why is there poverty in the United States of America? (b) Should we blame society for poverty or are the poor mostly responsible for their own poverty?There are two definitions of poverty: (i) Relative Poverty--the lack of resources of some people in relation to those who have more and (ii) Absolute Poverty--a lack of resources that is life-threatening (Macionis, 2015).  In 2014, the U.S. government classified 47 million men, women, and children as poor (Census Bureau).  The poor now represent 15 percent of the US population.  To be counted among the poor, families or individuals must report income below the official poverty line, which in 2015 is set at $24,250 for a family of four (Census Bureau).  As a result, the United States considered the richest nation on earth, contains tens of millions…

Modern epistemology

English, Not applicable
 This week's readings continue a similar theme to last week's. Descartes, a "rationalist", goes to great lengths to doubt everything he thought he knew in search of something certain, something foundational. His ultimate conclusion was that internal awareness and conceptual knowledge should serve as the starting point for inquiry. Locke, a empiricist, attacked the idea of any innate knowledge, arguing that there is no universal standard known by all, and that knowledge is constructed solely from sensory experience and then subsequent internal processing by the mind.For this discussion, post a reflection covering two parts: 1) What do you think of Descartes's doubts? Too much? An appropriate way to try to get to something certain? 2) Discuss an example from your own life where you really had to reevaluate something big - love, faith, work, meaning/significance,…
