The conceptualization of the behavioral phenomena is one of the most controversy subjects from realism and antirealism perspective. The individuality of humans' perception and behavior would give the idealist antirealists, such as Berkeley, a golden chance to say that it is impossible to view it as mind-independent entity. However, as a realist, I argue that the behavior exists with or without our perception. To illustrate the independent existence of human behavior I am going to put forward their claims about the presence of color they sees that if we cant see then, there is nothing perceived as color. So, for the color to be identified it must be perceived by others. For human behavior; is the presence of the perception of the "other being" is necessary for the identification of the behavior? What about if a person is by himself and eating who else, other than himself, perceive and identify his behavior? If an antirealist would answer that "himself" identified him self's behavior then I would ask: What about the involuntary behaviors If the answer is yes for the conscious/voluntary behavior what about the unconscious/involuntary behaviors. What is the importance of our realization of can ident other is necessary for the identification of the behavior? For example the eating behavior, are we always aware/ conscious of this behavior? What about ask: What do we mean by perception? Is it our observation (sight)? Or is it our hearing? By which one of the five senses we perceive human's behavior? We perceive the behavior either by one or a combination of senses "the necessity of the presence of the other to perceive the
Laughing at violence is a corresponding theme with antirealism, opening audiences to the interpretation of its ambiguities. Antirealism is not for everyone, but for those who accept the humor and intentional morals behind it. Family Guy mainly centers around a dysfunctional family coping with everyday life from a heavy reality. The show’s methodology of antirealism voices out a platform to use satire as a way to criticize and expose stupidity and vices in the context of politics and other topical….
AMERICAN REALIST SCHOOL OF JURISPRUDENCE
The realism is the anti-thesis of idealism. Some jurists refuse to accept the realist school as a separate school of jurisprudence. American realism is a combination of the analytical positivism and sociological approaches. It is positivist in that it first considers the law as it is. On the other hand, the law as it stands is the product of many factors. In as much as the realists are interested in sociological and other factors that influence the law….
Elaborate upon the concept of Realism and Neo-Realism in international relations with a focus upon the works of Morgenthau and Waltz.
Most theories of international relations are based on the idea that states always act in accordance with their national interest, or the interests of that particular state. State interests often include self-preservation, military security, economic prosperity, and influence over other states. Sometimes two or more states have the same national interest. For example….
Literary realism is the trend, beginning with mid nineteenth-century French literature and extending to late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century authors, toward depictions of contemporary life and society as it was, or is. In the spirit of general "realism," realist authors opted for depictions of everyday and banal activities and experiences, instead of a romanticized or similarly stylized presentation.
George Eliot's novel Middlemarch stands as a great milestone in the realist tradition….
Realism is one of the key theories in international relations. Realism can be simply understood as a political point of view, which emphasizes on competition among countries in terms of power, with the aim of reinforcing their national security. For some scholars, realism is already obsolete as it only makes sense in the time of war. However, with regard to many issues arising, its premises and tenets still stand the test of the time, proving their reasonability.
When it comes to realism, classical….
Defoe's Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, first published in 1719, was the only earlier prose fiction to earn similar favour. The change in opinion, as well as the last step in the novel's rise to sovereignty, has been attributed to the growing presence of realism as the novel's defining formal characteristic.
Before the eighteenth century, prose fiction was a relatively rare phenomenon and aroused controversy about narrative fabrication, a largely religious concern quite foreign to readers today. Nonetheless….
Realism as a philosophy flourished in the 18th and 19th century and was revived after the Second World War. E.H Carr, George Kennan, Thompson, Schumann and Morgenthau were its leading exponents. Morgenthau is generally recognized as its main proponent. He was the first one to develop a realist model and the central focus of realism, according to him was power. His theory was developed in the form of six principles of political realism. Following are those six principles:
1. Politics governed….
actors. Many theories have been used to explain the wide range of international interactions but one theory that has historically held a central position in the study of IR is realism.
Realism (or realist theory) is a school of thought that explains International Relations in terms of power as it focuses on the concepts of power and the balance of power. Like what it is said by Morgenthau: “International politics, like all politics, is a struggle for power. Whatever the ultimate aim of international….

Realism is a very old philosophy which dates back to as early as ancient Greece. The many interpretations of realist opinion lead to several varieties of realism. “The most common thread of realism is what may be called the principle of thesis of independence. This thesis holds that reality, knowledge, and value exist independent of the human mind” (Ozmon & Craver, 1995, 39). The idea behind realism supports an environment in which material items hold an important place in the idea of reality. “For….
