academic writing isn't primarily personal ("I grew up in Alaska, so I know all about...") Reasons why academics (and you) should use the first person: to directly respond to another scholar's ideas ("I, however, disagree with Smith's assertion because...") to clarify a point in the writing ("I do not intend to claim that all women...") to put the writer's thoughts into perspective ("My thoughts on this subject are clearly influenced by my gender...") to simplify wording ("the relationship between corporation and universities consumerism and religion is suggested to be.." versus "I suggest that corporations and universities..."In the past, scientific writers avoided the use of "I" because scientists often view the first person as interfering with the impression of objectivity and impersonality they are seeking to create. But conventions seem to be changing in some cases? for instance, when a scientific writer is describing a project she is working on or positioning that project within the existing research on the topic. Check with your science instructor to find out whether it's o.k. to use "I" in his/her class. Social Sciences: Some social scientists try to avoid "I" for the same reasons that other scientists do. But first person is becoming more commonly accepted, especially when the writer is describing his/her project or perspective. Even though it is considered improper to use I in an academic essay there are times it can be used effectively. [ In many cases, using the…
Socrates in his “Allegory of the Cave” (Plato). A story in dialogue form that depicts men chained from birth into a fixed position, it calls into question whether we as humans see only what we imagine and envision in a structure of a virtual reality. Should one find himself free of this sciolism, “he will see him in his own proper place…and he will contemplate him as he is.” While he could see reality, the other men would insist “that up he went and down he came without his eyes” (Plato).
It is with…
Why I Should Be Allowed to Participate in Drug Court
The past month has definitely been a learning experience for me. The biggest lesson that I have learned would have to be about complacency. Since I first started attending AA & NA meetings I have heard people say that they became complacent. They felt comfortable where they were in their sobriety and decided that it was okay to slack off a little bit. It was okay to miss the occasional meeting and not call their sponsor every day…

In order for you to have a successful business you must have the ability to operate a business, have financial skills and understand marketing. I would also use fair and ethical procedures in my business affairs. This is called organizational ethics. “In addition to employing fair and honest tactics in business, corporations must also manage relationships within the organization in an…

The hardest vow to keep
As human beings it’s our nature to break promises and not keep our word. We are not perfect, but when we take a vow to God we should honor those words.
Saving a marriage has to be mutual. Both individuals have to want to be together, no matter what they have been through. Staying together wasn’t an option for Toni and Vanessa Sanchez. They had been married for 12 years and Toni hasn’t been faithful any of those years…
printing press, which I have no idea why. While it does cause people to become more introverted and anti-social, it also widens our range of knowledge. Technology, such as everything else in our world, has its cons and pros.
Yes, there is no denying that our society has evolved because of inventions such as the telephone, computer, cell phone, and laptop; these new inventions give us the ability to do things, which would have otherwise taken all day, in an hour. Even at this moment, I am using my two…

Everyone Is Donating Their Eggs…Should I?
I was reading up on fertility clinics and happened to stumble across an advertisement for embryo donation, I had never really put in much thought into it but this time the $10,000 banner that adorned the advertisement caught my attention. I was healthy and fit all the requirements that the couple was looking for and within no time I found myself contemplating all the things I could do with that money. I could really use this money, so I spoke to my parents about…
I know I want it, but do I need it?
This generation gets new things so easily so of course it won’t be hard to throw anything away. I know this from personal experience; once something doesn’t look right anymore or looks outdated I throw it in the trash. A lot of things that I end up throwing away are things that I bought out of impulse while in the store. It’s my disposable culture that I have gotten used to, which I am starting to notice become a problem. There are many ways to avoid buying…

“Where I Lived, and What I Lived For”
A. In “Where I Lived, and What I Lived for” Thoreau discusses many different distinct philosophies and beliefs. One would include that, “To be awake is to be alive” (Thoreau, 181). He states that millions are awake for physical labor and effective intelligence, but only one in the hundreds of millions are poetic and lead a divine life (Thoreau, 181). We are awake for the daily tasks needed to be done but we…
