  • La bande dessinée comme outil de vulgarisation “Vivos se los llevaron”

    La bande dessinée comme outil de vulgarisation “Vivos se los llevaron”

    Ce genre de bande dessinée est très similaire aux autres bandes dessinées qui racontent une histoire fictive. Pourtant, ici, les événements sont vrais. Ils sont des faits.

    The real Heart of Darkness are the friends we made along the way

    At a first glance, one might argue that in the Heart of Darkness, we devolve into the worst version of ourselves. And that anyone who finds themselves isolated from the world will succumb to their darkest and most vile and horrifying impulses. After all, that is why we built cities and empires, so that we could live together in society. So that we could live by the rule of law, so that we wouldn’t kill our neighbors whenever a disagreement was brought up. So that we don’t end up like Mr. Kurtz.

    Angelical Temptations: Unequal companions

    The goal of this essay is to prove that Adam and Eve are not equal because they are tempted in a different way. I have to analyze their hierarchy which encompasses their place in the world as the newest creation in the garden of Eden, and the authority that each possess as well as their pursuit of knowledge which drives their actions and informs their respective trials and temptations.
