    This work presents an important investigation of design basics and the golden proportional model in Persian painted pottery motifs (late fifth-early fourth millennium B.C.) and presents a comparison among Persian, Egyptian and Grecian fundamental design basics. Generally, Persian, Egyptian and Grecian pottery motif designs have some similarities and dissimilarities in their design basics. It can be concluded that the employed elements are nearly the same for all the investigated civilizations. The techniques used to achieve the principles in Persian studied designs have been understood to be either design of Egyptian painted motif like or Grecian motif design like. The used golden proportional models were found to have distinctive variations for the different civilizations. Persian has a higher degree of diversity in golden proportional models compared resulting in a more well-performed/pleasant designs

    A Religious Revolution? How Socrates\u27 Theology Undermined the Practice of Sacrifice

    Get PDF
    Mark McPherran and Gregory Vlastos argue that Socrates’ theology threatened Athenian sacrificial practices because it rejected the do ut des principle (aka the principle of reciprocity). I argue that their arguments are flawed because they assume that the Athenians understood sacrifice as something like a commercial transaction. Drawing upon scholarship in anthropology and religious studies, I argue that we need to revise that understanding of sacrifice and that, once we do, McPherran’s and Vlastos’ arguments no longer show that Socrates would have been a significant threat to the practice of sacrifice. Finally, I argue that McPherran’s Socrates does undermine sacrifice, but not for the reasons that McPherran suggests. Rather, he undermines sacrifice by making external actions irrelevant to piety

    In general, the disabled situation in Saudi Arabia is pitiful. Many people with physical disability suffer from losing their rights. They are subjected to discrimination, neglect, unemployment, and isolation. The local response has a lack of advanced and reasonable insights to handle this type of problem. It is a reality; the current position is critical. However, each problem has a solution, this paper explains several solutions to the problem of disabled in Saudi Arabia. In the United States, the situation of the disabled is very good, which deserves to be the best example to follow. There are some solutions that can help to improve the disabled state in Saudi Arabia. Law, awareness, automatic doors, parking, accessible pedestrian signals devices are remarkable factors to resolve to this complex issue

    The purpose of this research is to explore neohumanist philosophy by Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar in order to produce new information to the early childhood education in Finland. It is an educational philosophy, which neohumanist education is based on, and it is relatively unknown to the professional educators. The values and educational ideas guide the practical work of educators and that is why profound knowledge of different kinds of educational philosophies helps the educator to make the right choices in the practical work. This research is focused on clarifying the central concept of universalism. The purpose is to find out how Sarkar describes universalism in his writings. A commentary was written of the book Liberation of Intellect: Neohumanism to separate and clarify the concepts of neohumanist philosophy. Concept of universalism was found to be a central concept and it was chosen as the focus of this research. A systematic analysis was done of writings where the concept of universalism was mentioned. The main material was the book Liberation of Intellect: Neohumanism where the central concepts of neohumanist philosophy were introduced by P.R. Sarkar. Secondary materials were writings from The Electronic Edition of the Works of P.R. Sarkar V7.5 where the concept universalism was mentioned. All together there were 36 quotes from 28 different articles which were included in this research. These quotes were analyzed to clarify how Sarkar describes the concept of universalism. The results show that Sarkar describes quite consistently universalism as a spiritually based love towards all beings. The concept of universalism, neohumanist philosophy and neohumanist education were discussed in the context of Finnish early childhood education.Tutkimuksen tarkoitus on tuottaa uutta tietoa suomalaiselle varhaiskasvatukselle tutkimalla Prabhat Ranjan Sarkarin neohumanistista filosofiaa. Se on suhteellisen vähän tunnettu kasvatusfilosofia, johon neohumanistinen kasvatus perustuu. Arvot ja kasvatukselliset näkemykset ohjaavat kasvattajan käytännön työtä ja siksi erilaisten kasvatusfilosofioiden syvällinen tuntemus auttaa kasvattajaa tekemään oikeita valintoja käytännön työssä. Tutkimus keskittyy keskeisen käsitteen, universalismin, selkeyttämiseen. Tarkoitus on selvittää miten Sarkar kuvaa universalismia kirjoituksissaan. Kirjasta Liberation of Intellect: Neohumanism kirjoitettiin kommentaari, jotta neohumanistisen filosofian käsitteet voitaisiin eritellä ja selkeyttää. Universalismin käsite todettiin keskeiseksi ja valittiin tutkimuksen kohteeksi. Systemaattinen analyysi suoritettiin kirjoituksista, joissa universalismi mainittiin. Ensisijainen materiaali oli Liberation of Intellect: Neohumanism, jossa Sarkar esittelee neohumanistisen filosofian. Toissijainen materiaali koostui The Electronic Edition of the Works of P.R. Sarkar V7.5 kirjoituksista, joissa universalismi mainittiin. Tutkimusaineisto koostui yhteensä 36 lainauksesta, jotka olivat peräisin 28 eri artikkelista. Lainaukset analysoitiin, jotta selvitettäisiin miten Sarkar kuvaa universalismin käsitettä. Tulokset osoittavat että Sarkar kuvaa johdonmukaisesti universalismia henkisyyteen perustuvaksi rakkaudeksi kaikkia olentoja kohtaan. Universalismin käsitettä, neohumanistista filosofiaa ja neohumanistista kasvatusta käsiteltiin pohdinnassa suomalaiseen varhaiskasvatukseen liittyen
