Answer to Question #166652 in History for Christopher

Question #166652

These weekly reflection assignments are for the purposes of reflecting on the readings (primary sources such as Plato, Ovid, Marie de France, Thomas Mann, or both films; secondary sources such as Nissinen, Foucault, and all of the "handouts" throughout the course). There is no specific content I am looking for other than careful reading and reflection--except for this one requirement: you MUST quote from one of the texts for each of the reflections at least once, giving the context of the quote and the importance of the quote for your reflection. 

Minimum word requirement: 400 words. 

Expert's answer
  1. Plato describes that your soul is immortal and that your body is just an obstacle for your body, that you gain all of this wisdom from when your soul finally leaves your body. Plato gives you a different way of thinking towards the body and the soul.
  2. Foucault discusses how people organize themselves and others through knowledge production. He saw the knowledge can generate power by lifting people into the subject and then commanding the subject with knowledge. For Foucault, knowledge is a source of power.
