Russell - Skinner - Articulation - Education

Re-readingHow to become a man of geniushas reminded me how I lacked the “art of denunciation” in my feminism mail. I went straight into the theory and headed on directly into the issue too bluntly. My target was evidently attacked. I should have been more pontifical to add a cynical rhetoric. I have also been going through vaguely on behaviorism that involvedBertrand Russelland B. F. Skinner. But before googling anything more I selected B. F. Skinner’s Science and Human Behavior from Anthology. Initially it was quite difficult to grasp the topic but slowly as I kept reading the topics were being discussed more elaborately though the complexity of the text was always present. The essay started off with Darwinism and his study of genetics, how we have all formed from one single cell and the behaviorism of human being is different from that of a rat’s is because of the affair a human involve into and other the verbal behaviorism between them is the only difference. After following the nex…

Contribution from Lamisa


Usually when I look at a very long poem, I get frightened. I then read the first two or three lines, and if I don't find it interesting, I don't read it. The other day, when I was reading 'In Praise of a Limestone', the same thing happened; I got scared just by lookingat it, and I did read it, but forcefully, without any interest.

Today, I attempted to read 'The Love Story of J. Alfred Prufrock' by T.S. Eliot. When I first looked at it, my initial reaction was, "Urgh,anothervery long poem!" I did feel terrified. My reaction after reading the first three lines, "Hmm, this may not seem so bad." I actually did feel like reading on. My reaction after finishing the poem, "Beautiful!" I absolutelylovedthe poem! The language was very easy to understand, and while I was reading the poem, I could actually visualize what the poet was saying, which doesn't often happen to me in the case of poems, so I decided it must be a very well-wri…

White Teeth - Post by Washek

I have read the articlewhite teethand post colonial literature. The article mentions many examples that I could relate to as it mainly discusses racism, discrimination, and immigrants issues and I have already developed some ideas about them in the last few months, from books such as the Metamorphosis, The Heart of Darkness and the recently read problems of the Somalian immigrant, in the Granta magazine article Fragments of a Nation. The article "white teeth and post colonial literature" takes example of many literary works some of which I recognize include The Heart of Darkness and Bend it like Beckham- the movie. The article talks about how literary works can help us express the influences that, mainly the western culture have on the immigrants. The article divides post colonial literature into two types-

1.the first wave post colonial writing and 2.the second wave post colonial writing
The first wave post colonial writing is the writing of those writers of a country who have…
