Questions

Subject: Shakespeare

TutorMe
Question:

Did Polonius' advice to his son in the opening Act of Hamlet constitute Shakespeare's true feelings?

Inactive
Andrew D.
Answer:

Shakespeare often uses characters to skewer opinions he does not agree with, and Polonius perhaps takes the brunt of this ire. No piece of advice from Polonius actually constitutes something useful for his son, for example: "Neither a borrower or lender be," but what is friendship if not a series of small debts to honor?

Subject: World History

Question:

Did the assassination of Franz Ferdinand cause WW1, or was it simply the spark that lit the assembled tinder of early 20th Century Europe?

Answer:

History has a somewhat dim view of individual human contributions to the scope of history. Historians would likely argue that conditions in Europe had created a powder-keg that was inevitably going to cause another large scale conflict, and Ferdinand was just unfortunate to drive underneath that balcony that day.

Subject: Folklore and Mythology

Question:

What is the relevance of mythologies from past civilizations for a student in the modern context?

Answer:

Mythology and Religion were Humanity's first ventures into the realm of knowledge and understanding. Although they were often wildly inaccurate, in some ways Mythology comprises man's early attempts at Physics, Philosophy, and Sociology. Understanding myths of the past give modern students a lens through which to view the world of Bronze Age man, and understand how thought has developed from then, to now.
