Inside Or Outside The Whale: George Orwell's Art And Polemic, Richard H. Walker

Masters Theses

This chronological study of the evolution of the works of George Orwell is helpful for the futurist, the citizen awash in groupthink, scholars of standpoint epistemology, of mind and nature, of radical humanism, and others. A former British officer and Spanish revolutionary, he became a Democratic Socialist who believed in intellectual freedom above all and was a champion of the common man. Described as the leading exemplar of the public intellectual, he focused on activism vs passivism (and pacifism), and transforming art and politics into cultural power with mind and nature as the foundation.

The Influence Of Mass Culture And Television On The Possibilities For Effective Social Criticism In America, Michael Petersen Apr 1991

The Influence Of Mass Culture And Television On The Possibilities For Effective Social Criticism In America, Michael Petersen

Political Science and International Relations Undergraduate Theses

People in the United States cherish freedom. Because we place such a great emphasis on freedom, many of us reject claims that we are not really free. However, there is a group of social theorists who claim that our freedom is largely an illusion. This group is called the Frankfurt School, and they are concerned with restoration of individual liberty in advanced industrial societies. Herbert Marcuse, a Frankfurt theorist, opens the initial chapter of One-Dimensional Man with the following statement, “A comfortable, smooth, reasonable, democratic unfreedom prevails in advanced industrial civilization, a token of technical progress” (Marcuse 1964).

False Hopes: The United States Senate And Campaign Finance Reform 1980-1990, James Heimbach Jan 1991

False Hopes: The United States Senate And Campaign Finance Reform 1980-1990, James Heimbach

Honors Theses

The cost of winning a seat in the United States Senate has risen dramatically over the last ten years. It has become the norm rather than the exception to spend over $1 million on a campaign. For example, in the 34 Senate races in the 1988 election, 32 campaigns spent over $1 million. Due to the necessity to raise more and more money, candidates have had to turn to alternative sources of campaign funds. Thus, the rise in campaign costs has been accompanied by a rise in the role of the political action committee (PAC). PACs are special interest groups ...
