Thinking Process Involved in Web Designing

It is true that computer science has a very limited set of choices and is in a phase where it has to abide by the dictates of market. Not yet it has seen its creative artist who can detect new avenues of expression and take us towards new worlds of experience. Now a computer programmer has to employ his skill towards the achievement of a goal that is quite pragmatic in nature. The basic idea of all computer programming and web designing is that how to make things useful and how to provide information about a certain product or entity to the end user.
We switch from one page to another by doing a simple act and the one who has programmed that for us knew certain realities and facts about our demand. That is why the first age of web designing is the age of pragmatic attitude in which the basic idea is of utility and usefulness. Till now computer language, being limited, knows only how to develop a page on which everything, which a user can demand to satisfy a certain want can be provide…
Logic of Being

Structure of our language depends on the way our mind functions. Our mind functions in a way that is suitable for our existence in this world. This suitable way of thinking, we learnt through our experiences in this world. We don't think it viable to unite contradictory ideals in our thought that is why we believe in the law of non-contradiction. We do not want to remain ignorant of any thing that is why we have created an answer to each and every question. For instance God as an answer to the question regarding the principle cause behind all causes.

Metaphysicians gave this cause the name God and attributed all sorts of positive adjectives to this logical construction. He is the necessary Being, the un-moved mover, Causa Sui, Summum Bonum etc. While attributing all sorts of positive attributes to this concept God, metaphysicians did some thing illogical. Nietzsche says, "Causa sui is the rape of logic. 'They committed a logical fallacy that influenced a…

Aberrant acts can be classified in two basic categories.There are acts that are harmful to the interests of society ,individuals and other groups in the society and there are acts that are called moral evils and considered as harmful to the moral character of the person who has perpetrated those acts.In most of the societies of east to have sexual relationship outside marriage is considered as a moral evil and deemed at as some thing condemnable and abhorrent by the members .In various societies of east ,specially in Islamic societies, including the society of Pakistan, to drink is deemed at as an accursed act.

Imagination according to Plato is an inferior faculty which imitates reality. Plato maintains the view that work of imagination in the form of art and literature presents nothing but imitations of truth in the form of sense ideas. That’s why Plato gives no place to artists in his republic. On the other hand he believes that rational knowledge, presented in his dialogues in the form of rational discourse, is the only true form of knowledge.

When Muslims discovered Plato, they were really impressed by his thought and system and majority of the early Muslim thinkers and mystics formed the view that religion and philosophy intend to reveal the same reality. That what religion shows and reveals through faith, philosophy establishes through rational discussion. However this faith in Plato created certain questions of real import and significance pertaining to the compatibility of religion and philosophy on certain issues. First amon…
A Phenomenological Interpretation of Dr. John Dewey's Views on Education

Heidegger in his Being and Time presented a comprehensive analysis of human experience .While concluding this analysis he says that all human experience can be reduced to following three categories:

1-MOOD (befundlichkeit)

2-LANGUAGE (verstehen)


According to Heidegger all human experience can be comprehended through these three categories which can not be set apart from each other and which constitute the manner with which we encounter ourselves in a given situation. All human experience can be finally reduced to these three categories. What ever we experience we experience in a certain mood, with a certain understanding of our situation and with a thought expressing itself in a language. In fact these three components that is the mood with which we encounter our own situation, the process of thinking that clarifies and communicates to us the knowledge of our possibilities in a …
