Sturm und Drang
Um 1770 beginnt eine richtige Revolution, eine Gegenbewegung zur Aufklärung, der „Sturm und Drang“ (tempesta e assalto) heißt. Diese Bewegung, im Gegensatz zur rationalistischen Dominanz der Vernunft, hatte im Mittelpunkt Ideale wie die Natur, das Gefühl und die Phantasie. Als Vorbild dieser neuen Dichtung gelten die spontanen und primitiven Schöpfungen aus der Jugendzeit der Völker. Der „Sturm und Drang“ dauerte zirka 20 Jahre (1767 – 1785) und war eine Bewegung von jungen Autoren deren Leitworte: Natur, Gefühl (sentimento), Leidenschaft (passione) und Freiheit waren. Dank der Jugendwerke Goethes und Schillers bekam die Bewegung große Bedeutung in der Geschichte der deutschen Literatur.
Johann Gottfried Herder war der Theoretiker des „Sturm und Drang“. Während die Aufklärer überzeugt waren, dass ein Dichter dauernd über die Regeln und die Aufgabe der Poesie nachdenken sollte, dachte Herder, dass uns die Realität, dass wir nachdenken und überlegen, zu wahrer Kunst unfähig (incapaci) macht. Ursprung wahrer Kunst ist nicht mehr die Vernunft sondern das Gefühl und die Leidenschaft. In diesem Sinne identifizierte er sich mit dem Kulturpessimismus und dem Motto Rousseaus „Zurück zur Natur“. Sein Meisterwerk ist „Stimmen der Völker in Liedern“. In diesem Werk zeigen sich kosmopolitische Elemente: neben deutschen Volksliedern stehen nordische und slawische Texte, schottische Balladen, sizilianische Reime, spanische und französische Romanzen aber auch Volkslieder aus Madagaskar. Dieses Werk wurde als erste universelle Anthologie in der Welt angesehen.

Active and Passive Euthanaisa

...Active and Passive Euthanasia   James Rachels was an American philosopher who specialized in ethics and animal rights. Over the course of his career has written six books and over 85 essays. In 1975, Rachels wrote the article “Active and Passive Euthanasia”, in which he argued that the distinction so important in the law between killing and letting die which was based on the principle of double effect. He argued that if we allow passive euthanasia, we should also allow active euthanasia because it is more humane and that there is really no moral difference between the two. In my paper I have chosen two questions to answer concerning the article written by James Rachels. Rachels offers two principal arguments against the distinction between active and passive euthanasia. What are these arguments? Passive euthanasia is when the doctor does not do anything to bring about the patient’s death because the patient ends up dying at whatever illness they may have. While active euthanasia is when the doctor does something to bring about the patient’s death, for example, the doctor gives a patient with cancer a lethal injection which causes the death of the patient. Rachels claims that "killing is not itself any worse than letting die." What support does he offer for this claim? Do you agree? Why or why not? Rachel argues that there really isn’t a moral difference between the two because many believe that killing someone is morally worse than letting someone die...

Crt Monitors and Active and Passive Matrix Displays

...CRT MONITORS AND ACTIVE AND PASSIVE MATRIX DISPLAYS The texts “CRT Monitors” and “Active and Passive Matrix Displays” gives us the necessary basic knowledge about the types of monitors. Most desktop computer systems sold now by default come with LCD monitors. But if you are one of those who want to know the difference between CRT and LCD monitors, these texts are immense help. To start with, a CRT monitor in general is nothing more than cathode ray tube with millions of diminutive red, green and blue phosphor dots. The working principle of CRT monitor is sustained by the theory of electron beam traveling across the tube to the area of deflection system where the beam is given direction to a specific pixel on the screen. The first CRT monitor has been invented in 1970s. However, monitor was greenish and the only possible sphere of usability was text-based computers. On the other hand, it was just a start. In 1987 when the VGA display system was invented and CRT monitors took a step into the astonishing success and recognition. As years went by, new technology of monitors was invented. These were an active and passive matrix display technology using monitors. First of all, these monitors were different from CRT because of the new thin film transistor technology. It was that kind of technology where particular row was switched on and a charge was generated and sent down the column. As result, the pixel appeared on the monitor at the intersect place of the row and the......

Apple is “considered amongst the largest information technology companies, ranking on the second place, coming behind Samsung Electronics and it’s the third largest mobile phone maker, being topped only by Samsung and Nokia (second and first place, respectively)” (Gartner, 2012). The company was founded on April 1 of 1976 by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne, later; the first one will become spokesman and one of the most recognized faces of the company. Their first product was an assembled circuit board without screen nor monitor and was called Apple I. As their founders analyzed other companies’ products and their functionality, another format and reach of Apple products were prototyped, to be sold in a near future. Later on, Steve Jobs was fired. Although with the launch of one of their first Macintosh came a profitable era, called “Apple’s first golden age” for Apple, which reaches from 1989 to 1992 (MacAddict, 1992), its undying competence with Microsoft, their sworn rival, the suit later filed against them, along with a lot of failed products their stock prices and market share were brought to a downward slide.

Different Types of Passive Optical Network

...A passive optical network (PON) is a system that brings optical fiber cabling and signals all or most of the way to the end user. Depending on where the PON terminates, the system can be described as fiber-to-the-curb (FTTC), fiber-to-the-building (FTTB), or fiber-to-the-home (FTTH). All PON systems have essentially the same theoretical capacity at the optical level. The limits on upstream and downstream bandwidth are set by the electrical overlay, the protocol used to allocate the capacity and manage the connection. The first PON systems that achieved significant commercial deployment had an electrical layer built on Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM, or "cell switching") and were called "APON." These are still being used today, although the term "broadband PON" or BPON is now applied. APON/BPON systems typically have downstream capacity of 155 Mbps or 622 Mbps, with the latter now the most common. Upstream transmission is in the form of cell bursts at 155 Mbps. Fiber to the curb (FTTC) refers to the installation and use of optical fiber cable directly to the curbs near homes or any business environment as a replacement for plain old telephone service (POTS). Think of removing all the telephone lines you see in your neighborhood and replacing them with optical fiber lines. Such wiring would give us extremely high bandwidth and make possible movies-on-demand and online multimedia presentations arriving without noticeable delay. Fiber to the curb implies that coaxial cable or......

Active and Passive Euthanasia

...2630- Introduction to Ethics April 20, 2013 Active and Passive Euthanasia Most moral codes state that killing another human being is morally wrong. I would agree that to kill another human being in the heat of anger, for material gain or in the event of committing a crime would be morally wrong. But I feel that our moral codes are lacking in certain areas and do not take into account some situations where killing another human being would be morally acceptable. This type of killing would be to end the person’s suffering only. These cases the killing would be called active and passive euthanasia. Active euthanasia “taking a direct action to kill someone, to carry out a “mercy killing”. (Vaughn, 2010) “Passive Euthanasia is allowing someone to die by not doing something-by withholding or withdrawing measures necessary for sustaining life.” (Vaughn, 2010) In today’s medical profession, defining death has become more difficult, as technology has provided physicians and medical staff the ability to prolong a patient’s life by artificial means. In years gone by, once a patient’s heart stopped beating and respiration stopped, a person was declared dead. Today, machines can keep a patient’s blood flowing, heart beating and lungs breathing, thus technically keeping the patient alive, possibly for years with no hope of a full recovery, only to live in a vegetative state. In cases such as these, passive euthanasia is allowable by law, withholding food and water,......

Active vs Passive Investing

...then passive investing will seem like the better path to follow. Active investing deals with applying humane intelligence and research to find the best deals in the market. Active investing can be compared to making a bet with your friend on a basketball game, and hoping to beat the odds. Passive investment, on the other hand, does not seek to forecast future securities prices nor does it favor certain securities. Instead, passive investing deals with investing in asset classes or indexes using historical data rather than the research active investors seek. Although there may be favorable outcomes to each form of investing, passive investing will be a better choice. The main reason to invest, whether passively or actively, is for profitability. When investing passively, there is the chance to perform close to the index, which does not necessarily reach the highest return at that moment. When incorporating fees for investing, the fees for passive investing are usually lower, due to less trading, than those of active investing. Less capital gains distribution also makes tax efficiency more favorable in passive investing. Engaging in passive investing also saves a busy investor some time since there is little to no research the investor has to find in order to make choices on certain securities. In its entirety, active investing typically cost more, which in turn takes away from any return, making profits lower than the actually seem. In the long run, passive......

Active and Passive Euthanasia

...euthanasia, because he sees no moral distinction between active and passive euthanasia, they are both intentional acts to terminate a life. Simply letting someone die is morally the same as killing someone so why is one more acceptable than the other? When a doctor lets a patient die, the doctor is not doing anything. In other words, contrary to how it may seem, doctors are acting by not acting. One is acting in the choice to not do anything. Rachel uses the example of a situation in which a doctor does not treat a patient of a life-threatening illness that is known to be treatable. By withholding treatment, the doctor is actually committing murder, However in a scenario where the illness is terminal withholding treatment is an acceptable practice based on the patient’s wishes. In these scenarios, active euthanasia would seem to be more humane but is not legal or acceptable. It seems to me that Rachel puts doctors in a situation where they must strictly either be torturers or murderers. In choosing to prolong the patient’s life, the doctor is criticized for prolonging suffering. If it is decided that medical support should no longer be given, the doctor is immediately a murderer. This is supported by Rachel’s’ argument that passive and active euthanasia have no moral distinction, they are both intentional acts to terminate the life of the patient. While I completely agree with Rachel’s argument that passive and active euthanasia have no moral distinction, I can see where......

Passive

...ROLE AND RISK & COST CONCEPT IN ACTIVE AND PASSIVE MANAGEMENT Name: Institution: Role and risk & cost concept in active and passive management Active and passive management are the two classes in which the investment strategies are categorized. Active management is whereby financial professionals try to outperform a specific benchmark. Passive funds like the exchange traded funds (ETFs) are whereby the index is tracked with no active stock selection (Barr, 2009). The risk of a failing a benchmark or index can be reduced through passive investment. Passive investment also reduces the cost. The active investment has the potential of boosting returns through outperforming some benchmarks. However, there are increased risks and also there are no guarantees that the benchmarks will be exceeded or matched. In a well-diversified portfolio, active and passive investment can flourish. The role of ETFs which is an important building block for dynamic and diverse portfolios is to offer access to equities and fixed income across large developed economies and the emerging markets. ETFs can be traded like share, thus similar liquidity is offered hence it allows the investor to adjust to their portfolios. In the context of investors’ specific objective, active management allows risks to be managed properly (Barr, 2009). Passive funds don’t neutralize risks, but they introduce benchmark risks and concentrated risks to investors and in relation to exchange-traded fund. The......

“Our Obligation Is to Give Meaning to Life, and in Doing so to Overcome the Passive, Indifferent Life”

...Author Note This paper was prepared for PHI 100: Introduction to Philosophy Homework Module #8 Taught by Professor David Smith 1. “Our obligation is to give meaning to life, and in doing so to overcome the passive, indifferent life” a quote by quote by Elie Wiesel, Nobel laureate for peace, Holocaust survivor and author. I do not know, I find times I believe life does not have meaning, and agree with the Nihilists, Taylor and Schopenhauer. There are times I believe I tread my own destiny and find meaning in what I do, like R. M. Hare Self-Chosen Commitment. I still have many questions left unanswered. I think we all, at one time or another ponders the meaning of life. I have concluded, and it is not 42, Elie is right, my world or my meaning of life is a succession of obligations. I do not know if it is good or not so good. Growing up, I had obligations to my mom and dad, later in life to God, as a solider I sought obligations to my country, then my wife and daughters and now to myself. Could I have lived my life differently and shied away from any obligation? I do not think so; something is side giving you the drive to seek what others will not. I do not know what that is, God? Maybe. So this one I would have to agree with Elie, and Hare, we give our own life meaning, or not 2. Of course human history is progressing, in science, technology, standards of living, socially and governing. Yet there were nearly 10,000 rapes last year and 16,254...

Active vs. Passive Euthanasia

...Active vs. Passive Euthanasia 1. Question What is the difference between active and passive euthanasia and is one form better or worse than the other when it comes to ending someone’s life? 2. Introduction There are a few differences between active and passive euthanasia. Active euthanasia involves assisting someone that is dying so they die quicker and painlessly. Whereas, passive euthanasia involves letting someone that is sick die by not prolonging their life with medication. It does not involve “killing” them, but instead letting their ailment take them more slowly. Is one of these methods more humane than the other when someone is dying? Is it more acceptable to let someone suffer for a longer period of time? Or would it be better to assist someone that is dying to end his or her life with dignity? 3. Position Statement Someone that is ready to die should be allowed to chance to die with dignity and with active euthanasia, as long as they are in the right frame of mind to make that decision. 4. Supporting Reason Allowing someone that is terminally ill or dying to die with dignity gives respect to the person in his or her last days. If someone is dying and they want to end their life, and not suffer, they should be allowed to have help from doctors to make that decision. The alternative would be to have them suffer for the remainder of their days, waiting for their time to die. This can cause depression and feelings of hopelessness. Not a good......

Esther: Passive Coward or Wise Leader

...Esther: Passive Coward or Wise Leader? The Persian name Esther means “star”. Throughout the book of Esther, we see several “star” qualities that reflect the strength and courage of the main character. At the beginning of the book, Esther seems to be a passive, compliant girl, however, as we see throughout the text, she moves from being an object, to a leader, and ultimately, savior of the Jewish people. The name and story of Esther evoke countless thoughts of beauty, strength, character, and courage, which bring her to a leadership role. Although the word “God” is not used a single time throughout this story, God’s hand is clearly over Esther, Mordecai, and the Jews. The story of Esther is set in the Persian Empire, and primarily occurs in Susa, the winter capital of the Persian Court. Esther’s story takes place between 486 and 465 BCE, during the reign of king Ahasuerus, or Xerxes. Prior to the entrance of Esther, King Xerxes had been planning to invade Greece and was having a six month long banquet with his princes and nobles to strategize. Not only was he working on a plan for invasion, he was also demonstrating the fact that he possessed the resources and wealth to wage war (George 13). At the end of this six month period, Xerxes held a seven day long feast. On the seventh and final day, King Xerxes summoned Queen Vashti to appear in her crown, and only her crown, for the people and nobles to witness her beauty. Queen Vashti refused. Xerxes viewed Queen......

Examples of PTPs E. Benefits of PTP’s IV. Conclusion   Publicly Traded Partnerships (PTPs) and the passive loss limitations According to the IRS Publication 925, there are two sets of rules that may limit the amount of deductive loss from a trade, business, rental, or other income producing activity. These rules apply to individuals, estates, trusts, personal service corporations and closely help corporations. When it comes to PTP the rules must be applied separate to income or loss from a passive activity. In this essay I will tell what a PTP is and I will also give examples of some PTP’s. I will also tell what benefits these PTP’s claims will result from their investments. A publicly traded partnership (PTP) is a partnership between limited partners who provide the capital for the company and the general partners who manage the company. Limited partnership shares in the company are publicly sold by the partnership, offering equal equity or dividends of a public traded company. The publicly traded partnership must withhold tax on any actual distributions of money or property to foreign partners Real estate, energy (including alternative energy fuels), transportation and commodities are some of the PTP’s that the IRS restricts to limited partners...
