12/04/07 p.842 Duelism; body (negative association) v.s. soul (positive association) “I was glad to be in bondage, tied with troublesome chains, with the result that I was flogged with the red-hot iron rods of jealousy suspicion, fear, anger, and contention.” “Yet physical things had no soul.” The issue of controlling desire—“ I was captivated by theatrical shows. They were full of representations of my own miseries and fuelled my fire.” The above idea is particularly a respond to Aristotle’s idea catharsis. In Aristotle’ s point of view, he sees tragedy have the function of purging one’s emotions of pity and fear. Catharsis—purification of one’s soul. St. Augustine’s argument— the pain itself is pleasure—parody—ironic oxymoron “Nevertheless he wants to suffer the pain given by being a spectator of these sufferings, and the pain itself is his pleasure.” Concept of freedom —exercising control is the access to freedom p.841 Sin

    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.
