I do not think other people see me as I see myself. People are swift to put you in a place that they are comfortable with, to make it easier on themselves. It usually requires a pre-judgment, but they do it anyway. I don’t think anyone is really seeing someone. For example if a picture of someone is shown to 10 people there will be 10 different perspectives. As humans we show what we want people to see or sometimes people see what they want to perceive. You can get others opinions for surface value or the physical, but deep within, you'll be the one to know who you really are. I have made the inside of the collage black and white for a reason. White is a strong color, in my collage it represent goodness, innocence and my purity as a Christian. It reflects a positive connotation and can also illustrate my character traits of kindness. Black represents power and mystery. It is to exhibit how I am a mystery; no one fully knows who I am and what I am capable of. The picture that has color is to show breaking free of a colorless society and to show uniqueness that I am original and not a copy. Empiricism is the philosophy theory that all knowledge comes from experience. When we are born, we are a blank slate, we learn from what is going on around us. For example the knowledge of pain, in order to know what pain is a person has to experience it. Empiricism involves the 5 senses, taste, touch, feel, smell and seeing. How would someone know what the color pink looks like if they…
This was an important claim of David Hume. Hume thought that by the adoption of
this thesis, we could banish obscure, meaningless ideas from our discourse, since such
ideas cannot be traced back to experience in the way described by the thesis. Thus our
thinking would achieve greater clarity and would be free of metaphysical nonsense.
Hume supported the claim by appealing to the fact that people who lack access to a
particular realm of sense experience, e.g. sight in the case of the blind…

Learning theory says 2 ways...operant conditioning and classical conditioning
Self-observation, it is a thought. (thinking about self, “I look good/bad today”)
Judgement, comparing an observation to some standard. (today/yesterday, experience/ideal)
Observation and Judgement are conative. Personality is encapsulated in the way you think about these things.
Self-response is the reaction to ...

reality, and what do they offer as alternatives to reality; that is, if everything is not real, then what else is there? How does their analysis of first philosophy implicate and predicate other aspects of their philosophical projects (epistemology, physics, ethics, ontology, politics, and hermeneutics)?
Metaphysics is a traditional branch of philosophy concerned with explaining the fundamental nature of being and the world.
Aristotle's Metaphysics was divided into three parts:
1. Ontology: The study…
5 definitions of philosophy
1) Search for self-understanding
2) Love and pursuit of wisdom
3) Asking of questions about the meaning of our basic concepts
4) Search for fundamental beliefs that are rationally justified
5) Philosophy explores the meaning of reality and illusion, and faith and reason
Main branches of philosophy
Metaphysics- questions reality and what is there. The branch of philosophy that deals with the first principles of things, including abstract concepts such as being,…
metaphysics. This main question that is raised by Descartes is, “Why and what should I doubt?” This vital question examines the existence of knowledge and where is originates from. There are two schools of thoughts that attempt to answer this question: empiricism and rationalism. Empiricists like Locke, Berkeley, and Hume believe that sense experience is the best source for all of our knowledge. In contrast, rationalists like Descartes, Spinoza, and Leibniz think that we acquire knowledge independently…

Final Examination Part B
Question #2a: Why should I help someone else in need? David Hume based his philosophy on a belief in cause and effect relations. Hume would begin by observing the person’s current situation and what originally caused him or her to end up there in the first place. He would then analyze the factual relationships between the events (i.e. events A and events B), provided by the senses and evidence, and try…
The theory of knowledge, or Epistemology, is an important area in philosophy. Many great philosophical debates have developed because of the different views and principle issues dealing with epistemology. Although there are several principle issues in epistemology, my areas of focus are, empiricism, rationalism, Skepticism, and Justification.
Empiricism is the theory that experience is the main focus in giving us knowledge of the world. Empiricists believe that knowledge without personal…

Running head: DOROTHEA OREM’S SELF CARE THEORY
Dorothea Orem’s Self Care Theory
West Virginia University
When a patient needs to decrease the potential problem that prevents him from reaching his optimal health, nurses can use Orem’s Self-care Model as a tool to identify when and how much they can influence the patient care. This theory is the key of nursing care if it is used optimal and in a period of time when patient’s development can be discover and manipulated…
