Discussions, 2007, Vol. 2 No. 1 - 2536 words | Philosophy » Mythology

2011, Vol. 3 No. 10 - 3636 words | Literature » Shakespeare
Shakespeare’s comedies, at first glance, seem to uniformly end on a positive note, with the fulfillment of desires, the overcoming of obstacles, and the victory over malevolent forces. In Twelfth Night and Measure for Measure, however, this is not the case. The... Read Article »
2011, Vol. 3 No. 03 - 1374 words | Political Science » Identity

2010, Vol. 2 No. 11 - 1506 words | Education » Gifted Learners
Gifted learners, although possessing higher levels of intelligence than their peers, are disadvantaged in the sense that they frequently do not, or are not given the opportunity, to reach their full potential (Farmer, 1993). Krause, Bochner and Duchesne (2003:212)... Read Article »
