Choose to answer ONE of the following:
A. Human Aggression: We certainly can observe that human societies have as much intra-group and inter-group aggression as certain primate societies, like chimpanzees. Choose either intra-group or inter-group aggression and explain how it is adaptive to human societies. Do you think humans can ever overcome their aggressive tendencies to form social unity? What would have to happen?
B. Human Relationships: To what extent does biology/instinct influence our cultural ideas about family and marriage? In what ways do humans seem to “go against” or “overcome” our instincts with regard to relationships? Explain your answers in detail.
C. Human Sexual Behavior: Students often observe that humans engage in sexual behaviors that are often not “procreative” (result in conception of a child), and wonder why these behaviors would be so common if they are not affecting reproduction. Are these non-procreative sexual behaviors adaptive in some way? Explain your answer in detail. (Note: if you are uncomfortable discussing sexual topics, you are in no way obligated to answer or reply to this question. Please be sure to not be too informal or in any way disrespectful in discussion of sexual topics).
blinking lights of the swingshift at Feinberg and Breslin’s First-Rate Plumbing and Plating with a message from the kingdom of fire.” This short segment of the essay described to the readers what the worker in the factory is doing. The worker is mixing different kinds of acid and making a solution that would clean the metal salts. The author then refers the solution as a burning stew to remind readers about the violent nature of the solution. However, there is more in the poem than describing the scenery that the author is in. After making the solution, the poet compares the worker as a messenger from the kingdom of fire and showed that the worker has brought message of the completion of his tasks. And with the metaphor of knight putting on armors and going into a battlefield, it is not hard to understand that the author thinks that he is working on an honorable job and want the same gratitude from the people as a knight. However, at the end of the poem, the poem also showed that all the “fame” that the author gets for working in such a dangerous environment is getting a cold shower to rinse off any residue chemicals and he smokes to ease the upset he felt. These are all metaphors and images that the author wants readers to understand and envision. They combined to tell a story of the dangerous environment the workers have to face and how the workers feel, with the images and metaphors while showing the readers that the author is very upset that he couldn’t get any attention and honor for working in such a difficult environment. And at this very moment, the power of the imagery review itself. If we take a closer look at the poem I mentioned above, you will see the author not only showing readers his working environment and his upset about the attention he receives, he also tries to influence the reader’s emotion with those imagery and metaphors. In the poem Fear and Fame by Philip Levine, the image that Philip Levine portrait is dangerous, harsh, risky and negative. With this image in mind, the readers will start to feel the empathy for the characters inside of the poem and pity them for having to work in such a harsh environment. With the feeling integrated into the readers, readers can understand the argument and even agree with the viewpoints from the author as the author finally brings up the attention and honor he should have received from the public for working in such a difficult and dangerous environment. This provokes the readers into thinking if they have been taking things for granted without even acknowledging the sacrifice and harshness others have to endure. It is said that a picture contains thousands of words, but to me, a poem far outplayed an image as it carries not only the image itself, but also an idea, a piece of emotion, a gentle touch of comfort that tingles our soul. A piece of poem is an art, a piece of art that bring us more than pure enjoyment and the satisfaction of decoding and understanding what it means. The value of a poem is how thought provoking it is. Poem can be a reflection of a society or simply a person’s idea of what is right or wrong. With poem, we have the opportunity to understand what the poet thinks and we can reflect on ourselves with that value just like we engage in a self-reflection on if we have been taking things for granted without giving the credit to those who worked for it when we read the poem: fear and fame. I believe that imagery is one of the main way that a poet communicates with us and with imagery, we just got ourselves the best ticket to witness the greatest collection of films at the backseat of the cinema.
