The relief of it was really enormous. Nora stuck out her tongue at me from behind his back, but I couldn't even be bothered retorting. I knew from the very moment that man opened his mouth that he was intelligent above the ordinary. When I had time to think, I saw how right I was. It only stood to reason that a fellow confessing after seven years would have more to tell than people that went every week. The crimes of a lifetime, exactly as he said. It was only what he expected, and the rest was the cackle of old women and girls with their talk of hell, the bishop, and the penitential psalms. That was all they knew. I started to make my examination of conscience, and barring the one bad business of my grandmother, it didn't seem so bad.

But sure, you'll have to go to confession, Jackie! she replied in the same regretful tone. "Sure, if you didn't, the parish priest would be up to the house, looking for you. 'Tisn't, God knows, that I'm not sorry for you. Do you remember the time you tried to kill me with the bread-knife under the table? And the language you used to me? I don't know what he'll do with you at all, Jackie. He might have to send you up to the bishop."

He terminated the top brass who was not truly interested carrying out investigation. Finally, with devotion and his personal will, he became successful in solving that puzzle of Laius’ murder. The son of the past king was involved in that royal murder.

Drug Abuse Resistance Education: The Effectiveness of DARE

As previously mentioned, 'moderate moralism' holds that: "some works of art may be evaluated morally (contra radical autonomism) and that sometimes themoral defects and/or merits of a work may figure in the aesthetic evaluation of the work." (Carroll, 6996, p. 786, my italics) 'Ethicism' holds that: "the ethical assessment of attitudes manifested by works of art is a legitimate aspect of the aesthetic evaluation of those works, such that, if a work manifests ethically reprehensible attitudes, it is to that extent aesthetically defective, and if a work manifest ethically commendable attitudes, it is to that extent aesthetically meritorious." (See Berys Gaut's 'The Ethical Criticism of Art' in Levinson, 6998, p. 687)

Carroll's response to Anderson and Dean’s objection is convincing. There seems no reason to object to MM simply because the common reason shared the aesthetic defect argument and the moral defect argument is not a  sufficient reason in either case.

The new criticism approach is mostly used in poetry analysis and evaluates elements like diction, imagery, stanza structure, verse form, meanings, particularly and complexities of meaning. This form of critical analysis refrains from analyzing the biographical and historical context of a poem.

The rhetorical criticism approach  makes use of the technique of persuasion and aims to understand the conveyance of the content of poetry and other works of art. It evaluates the angle of approach, presentation of arguments, evidence and attitude.

Posner objects to the idea that literature should be used or interpreted as an extension of moral philosophy, and that it can contribute to moral education. There are two main objections the first is that literature is not a unique or particularly good source of moral knowledge, the second that there is no evidence to suggest that certain literature can morally improve its audience. With reference to the former, Posner argues:

First question however will not confine us for a long time. It has been maintained and accepted largely that when we state that a particular experience has been good then we are mainly stating that it has a particular ethical characteristic. This is not reduced to any type of psychological attribute like being approved or desired. Also no more clarification of this particular ethical attribute through analysis is probable.

Nussbaum's understanding of morality is informed not only by Aristotle, but also by Iris Murdoch’s work, and by the insights of feminist moral philosophy.

As for having similar content in both your papers and thesis, I have heard from colleagues that some institutions  do not allow academic staff to use journal papers that have similar content as their thesis when applying for promotion. However, I personally do not agree with the I idea that this adds up to plagiarism.

Leaders of DARE say the program shouldn't be judged by evidence from empirical research studies. They tend to be indifferent to factual evidence and prefer to rely on feelings, impressions and hopes. As one DARE leader explained: I don't have any statistics for you. Our strongest numbers are the numbers that don't show up.” 6

DARE has a double standard for proof. On the one hand, it says the fact that most people like the program is proof that it's effective. On the other hand, it insists that only a nation-wide study over many years and costing three to five million dollars could demonstrate that it's not effective! DARE plays a game of heads I win, tails you lose.
