Computers Mimic The Human Mind The mind-body problem has captivated the minds of philosophers for centuries. The problem is how the body and mind can interact with each other if they are separate and distinct. One solution to the problem is to replace any mental term with a more accurate physical description. Eliminative Materialists take this idea to the extreme by stating that everything that is believed to be mental will someday be explained in terms of the physical world. One way that people

A personís capacity to remember and the total store of mentally retained impressions and knowledge also formulate memory.

In this paper I will focus on the underlying meaning in the Underworld scene in Vergilís The Aeneid (lines 356 through 1199). I will also focus on three scenes in Ovidís Metamorphoses. Both epics contain a larger message about the importance of the Roman past for its present and future under Augustus. The story of Aeneas in the Underworld can be interpreted

In poetry, tragedy, comedy, and history, Greek writers created masterpieces that have inspired,

It was 1593 according to our modern calendar, but at the time the new year in England began on the following March 25th. Nicholas Ferrar was one of the more interesting figures in English history.

Dukkha can also be described as the suffering we experience and see in our lives. Unpleasant conditions such as being sick, seeing our loved ones get sick and die, getting aggravated over things our

In order to find the end of suffering, I found that one must review the purpose for the suffering to being in oneís life (Harvey 49). the
