41: Other Minds
... similar physical behaviour in others, I draw the analogy that it is caused by the same (or at least similar) mental states to my own. As in all arguments from analogy, I assume that because x is similar to y in some respects, it will be similar in others. So as I know how I behave if I am feeling, say, angry, I assume in someone else’s case that his ... impossible to conceive of any set of experimental circumstances under which I would be able to ascertain whether or not the human who is expressing anger-behaviour really is angry or not. And as Norman Malcolm has pointed out, as there are no conceivable criteria I could use to determine whether someone is angry or not, simply claiming that they are angry is a meaningless statement. Many philosophers, perceiving this fatal flaw in the argument from analogy, have attempted to produce theories on other minds that are not based on analogy. Malcolm himself held that the problem lies in the belief that in looking for evidence of other minds, we need to start off from our own case and then look for evidence that other cases ...
42: Ebonics
... language has developed in America. Furthermore one has to be aware how the American society is loaded down with the influence of stereotypical thinking, racialism and competition. In his autobiography, the famous black spokesman, Minister Malcolm X, portrays the undisguised hostility that exists between white and black people in America. He illustrates this conflict with the following words: "…You cannot find one black man, I do not care who he is, who ... of the … white man!. The greatest miracle … in America is that the black … has not grown violent … they would have been justified by all moral criteria, and even by the democratic tradition" (The Autobiography of Malcolm X, page 371 & 349) Is Ebonics simply the democratic consequence, a black non-violent upraise against the "devilish acts of the white man" as as foreseen by Malcolm X? Who is prospering from Ebonics? ...
43: The Man And Legend
... we have obviously made great progressions through civil rights movements but I do not believe that it can be fully eliminated by any means.(pg. 80) People like Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr., and Malcolm X have made critical contributions to the civil rights movement, and their thoughts should be used as a road map reward. For most of his life Malcolm X believed that the way to achieve equality in America was to preach separatism between blacks and whites. These ideas of black supremacy led many to believe that Malcolm X was an extremist. He ...

45: Crisis: Generation X
Crisis: Generation X Generation X is the most misunderstood generation to date. Douglas Coupland attempts to make sense of what sense this generation has been left with. Due to high expectations placed upon Generation X, commonly know as "X-ers", by the successful "Baby Boomer" generation. Couplands' writings validate his generation (Generation X) and invalidates the Baby Boomers. Generation X, Shampoo Planet, and Microserfs were written to support the ...
46: Black Panther Party
... aggressive actions would not only drive the party apart but also create false information regarding the Panther's programs and accomplishments. In recent years, historians have devoted much attention of the early 1960's, to Malcolm X and Martin Luther King and have ignored the Black Panthers. The Panthers and Huey P. Newton's leadership of the Party are as significant to the Black freedom struggle as more widely known leaders of ... the college curriculum while others (including Huey and Bobby) proposed the SSAC's organize an event dubbed "Brothers On the Block" that would bring an armed squad of urban youths onto campus, in commemoration of Malcolm X's birthday, the year after his assassination. The death of Malcolm X was yet another event which led Black youth to question the traditional leadership of the Civil Rights Movement and its philosophy ...
47: Black Women and Their Push For Equality For African Americans
... comparatively minute number of famous female participants. Generally the female activists lie in the shadows of their male counterparts such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Stokely Carmichael, Bobby Seale, and El-Hajj Malik Shabazz (Malcolm X). Even organizations like the Black Panthers with female members are mostly remembered for their male leadership. Hence, women are not visible in the picture portraying the Panther Party. The strength of the Movement is associated ... aided the formation of the NAACP and SNCC. While we can only learn from the Panther’s strength through historical example, the NAACP and SNCC still currently continue to operate and strive for civil rights. Malcolm X attempted to give women their proper respect when he says in a speech, "behind every strong man stands a strong woman." He reveals the necessity of women in the Civil Rights Movement. Malcolm’ ...
48: Civil Rights
... period of liberalism. This strong liberalism greatly helped the African American cause. However, the biggest factor in this great social change was the influence of black civil rights leaders such as Martin Luther King and Malcolm X.

49: Gods Gift to Calculators: The Taylor Series
... the four basic arithmetic operators. So how do mathematicians take a function and turn it into a polynomial function? Lets find out. First, lets assume that we have a function in the form y= f(x) that looks like the graph below. We'll start out trying to approximate function values near x=0. To do this we start out using the lowest order polynomial, f0(x)=a0, that passes through the y-intercept of the graph (0,f(0)). So f(0)=ao. Next, we see that the graph of f1(x)= a0 + a1x will also pass through x= 0, ...

History King Malcolm II ... reigned from 1005 to 1034 and was the last king in the direct male line to descend from Kenneth MacAlpine, who united the Scots and Picts in 843 A.D. and is considered the founder of Scotland.
