Persuasive Letter to Hon Tony Clement

Clearly, there are supporters and opposition concerning using human eggs for stem cell research.

Letter to the Editor About Arthur Schopenhauer

Dear Sir, Your editorial on the correctness and practicality of Arthur Schopenhauer’s philosophy in our everyday lives was well very well-written. In it, you have made clear the main elements of Schopenhauer’s philosophy: that existence, far from harmonious, is actually full of conflict, that the will – the innermost essence of every man – is irrational and nothing but a blind impulse toward existence, and that happiness cannot be attained by humankind because the will necessitates suffering (Pfeffer, 1972, p. 42)….
