Regina Pranata AHS 1000-05 Professor. Li Xing Hua March 31 st 2015 Journal 1 In chapter five of The Myth of Progress Wessels focuses on the real meaning of progress. He believes that real progress will be attained only if we develop a socioeconomic model that fosters diversity and energy conservation. In order to enable readers to understand the real meaning of progress, he discusses two terms: “hierarchy of progress and “ancient values,” according to Wessels the most essential thing that form the “hierarchy of progress” is the physical and emotional well-being of the individuals and the community. He asserts that for individuals to reach a state of well-being, they must live lives that are rich in experience. He mentions that the experience must be fulfilling and it is attainable only if people are engaged with others and willing to make personal sacrifices to help people around them. By engaging ourselves and directing our attention, compassion and empathy towards others, a community well-being is achieved. My experience conforms Wessels idea about community well-being.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
