Iago without a doubt is a sadist, and from his actions this is proven Human decency: - Iago lacks human decency; everything he says and does is basically an attack on human decency - Constantly making racist comments, objectifying women - Everyone else around him has human decency so they trust that he is being genuine with his actions and believe that he also has a sense of human decency - Iago is amoral, and a very good liar; acts like he is a moral being Lack of Motivations - Wants a sense of power, so when he is not given the promotion he seeks it in another way - Motivations appear clear in beginning, but start to fade as the play progresses and any motivations that would be the cause of Iago’s actions become almost irrelevant

    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.
