John Milton employs classical rhetorical techniques in "Paradise Lost" to accomplish Satan's temptation of Eve which begins on line and ends with line of Book 9; however, Satan's oration resembles pejorative sophistry and Milton uses Ciceronian arrangement for Satan's argument. Milton envisions Satan as a clever, cunning creature who purposely misleads Eve--an innocent.

The question which led to this book by the academy of Dijon was somewhat rhetoric: ‘What is the origin of inequality among mankind. And whether such inequality is authorized by the law of nature?’ Rousseau chose to write a discourse on an answer that deserves only one word. The answer is Vanity/5(26).

The sum of the discourse stands in these two particulars: 1. That the chief good and chief happiness of man is not to be had in the creature, or in any worldly thing. The second verse lays before us the general doctrine of the book, "Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher; vanity of vanities, all is vanity." Where, more particularly, we have.

A repetition of the great truth he had undertaken to prove in this discourse, the vanity of the world (v. III. A confirmation and recommendation of what he had written in this and his other books, as worthy to be duly weighed and concluded, with a charge to all to be truly religious, in consideration of the judgment to come (v.

13, 14). "Vanity of vanities," lamented Solomon, "all is vanity!" It is a philosophical discourse, and yet it is more. Its focus is on man the creature, his life on earth, and the inscrutability of God and His ways.

The dispositions and actions of childhood and youth have in them a great deal of impertinence and iniquity, sinful vanity, which young people have need to watch against and get cured.

Rene Descartes () published Discourse on Method in The original work contained sections on optics, geometry, and meteorology. The fourth section, the Discourse, outlined the basis for a new method of investigating knowledge.

Ecclesiastes Seeing there be many things which increase vanity — This seems to be added as a conclusion from all the foregoing chapters; seeing not only man is a vain creature in himself, but there are also many other things, which, instead of diminishing, do but increase this vanity, as wisdom, pleasure, power, wealth; seeing even the good things of this life bring so much toil.

- NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book V. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of Him who hath subjected the same in hope; because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God."[53].

He concludes this discourse of the vanity of the creature with this plain inference from the whole, That it is folly to think of making up a happiness for ourselves in the things of this world (v. 11, v. 12). Our satisfaction must be in another life, not in this. Though he hates books, Jean-Jacques does not entirely deprive Emile of the opportunity to read; he eventually caves and allows his pupil to peruse the one book that “provides the most felicitous treatise on natural education,” Daniel Defoe’s The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of.

The name of this book signifies "The Preacher." The wisdom of God here preaches to us, speaking by Solomon, who it is evident was the author. At the close of his life, being made sensible of his sin and folly, he recorded here his experience for the benefit of others, as the book of his repentance; and he pronounced all earthly good to be "vanity and vexation of spirit.".

For man is not only a contributary Creature but a total Creature: he does not make one, but is all. He is not a piece of the world, but the world itself; and next to the glory of God, the reason why there is a world.

A Discourse Upon the Origin and the Foundation of the Inequality Among Mankind Jean-Jacques ROUSSEAU ( - ) This work presents Rousseau's belief in the profoundly transformational effects of the development of civilization on human nature, which Rousseau claims other political philosophers had failed to grasp.

The themes in this book were very intriguing. The question which led to this book by the academy of Dijon was somewhat rhetoric: ‘What is the origin of inequality among mankind? And whether such inequality is authorized by the law of nature?’ Rousseau chose to write a discourse on an answer that deserves only one word.
