After taking this course, I now have a better understanding of who I am as a person. Personality is the combination of characteristics or qualities that form an individual s distinctive character. To help define behavior we used five approaches. The five approaches include the phenomenology/humanistic approach, biological approach, psychoanalytic approach, trait approach, and the cognitive approach. The first approach is called the phenomenology/humanistic approach. Phenomenology is oneÃ¢â¬â¢s experience of the world. This approach says that people are innately good and is motivated to reach their full potential (Personality). Carl Rogers is the man who is most often associated with this approach as well as Abraham Maslow. Carl Rogers said life experiences is the basic component of growth and wellbeing. Abraham Maslow had a hierarchy of needs in order to reach oneÃ¢â¬â¢s full potential. At the top of this list of this hierarchy is self-actualization (Personality). The next approach is the biological approach. Psychologists like Hans Eysenck believe that genetics are the primary determining factor of personality even though he also thinks conditioning plays a role (Cherry). This approach studies temperament which is the innate personality features or dispositions. Also twin studies have been done using this approach. Researchers have studied and proved that identical twins raised together are more similar than fraternal twins raised together in traits like constraint, emotionalityShow MoreRelatedDifference Between Humanistic Geography and Positivistic Approach1000 Words Ã |Ã 4 PagesDifference Between Humanistic Geography and Positivistic Approach There are definite differences between positivism and humanistic methods that geographers use.

Today, civil rights organizations such as the NAACP, Black Lives Matter and the National Action Network are among the most recognized in the United States. But, Southern Christian Leadership ConferenceÃ (SCLC), which grew from the historic Montgomery Bus Boycott in 1955, lives on to this day. The advocacy groupÃ¢â¬â¢s mission is to fulfill the promise of Ã¢â¬Å"Ã¢â¬Ëone nation, under God, indivisibleÃ¢â¬â¢ together with the commitment to activate the Ã¢â¬Ëstrength to loveÃ¢â¬â¢ within the community of humankind,Ã¢â¬ according to its website. While it no longer wields the influence it did during the 1950s and Ã¢â¬â¢60s, the SCLC remains an important part of the historical record due to its affiliation with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., a co-founder. With this overview of the group, learn more about the SCLCÃ¢â¬â¢s origins, the challenges it has faced, its triumphs and leadership today. The Link Between the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the SCLC The Montgomery Bus Boycott lasted from Dec. 5, 1955, to Dec. 21, 1956, and began when Rosa Parks famously refused to give up her seat on a city bus to a white man. Jim Crow, the system of racial segregation in the American South, dictated that African Americans not only had to sit in the back of the bus but also stand when all seats filled up. For defying this rule, Parks was arrested. In response, the African American community in Montgomery fought to end Jim Crow on city buses by refusing to patronize them until the policy changed. A year later, it did. Montgomery buses were desegregated. The organizers, part of a group called the Montgomery Improvement Association (MIA), declared victory. The boycott leaders, including a young Martin Luther King, who served as MIAÃ¢â¬â¢s president, went on to form the SCLC. The bus boycott triggered similar protests across the South, so King and the Rev. Ralph Abernathy, who served as MIAÃ¢â¬â¢s program director, met with civil rights activists from all over the region from January 10-11, 1957, at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. They joined forces to launch a regional activist group and plan demonstrations in several Southern states to build on the momentum from MontgomeryÃ¢â¬â¢s success. African Americans, many of whom had previously believed that segregation could only be eradicated through the judicial system, had witnessed firsthand that public protest could lead to social change, and civil rights leaders had many more barriers to strike down in the Jim Crow South. Their activism wasnÃ¢â¬â¢t without consequences, however. AbernathyÃ¢â¬â¢s home and church were firebombed and the group received countless written and verbal threats, but that didnÃ¢â¬â¢t stop them from founding the Southern NegroÃ Leaders Conference on Transportation and Nonviolent Integration. They were on a mission. According to the SCLC website, when the group was founded, the leaders Ã¢â¬Å"issued a document declaring that civil rights are essential to democracy, that segregation must end, and that all black people should reject segregation absolutely and nonviolently.Ã¢â¬ The Atlanta meeting was only the beginning. On ValentineÃ¢â¬â¢s Day 1957, civil rights activists assembled once more in New Orleans. There, they elected executive officers, naming King president, Abernathy treasurer, the Rev. C. K. Steele vice president, the Rev. T. J. Jemison secretary, and I. M. Augustine general counsel. By August of 1957, the leaders cut their groupÃ¢â¬â¢s rather cumbersome name to its current one Ã¢â¬â the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. They decided they could best execute their platform of strategic mass nonviolence by partnering with local community groups throughout the Southern states. At the convention, the group also decided that its members would include individuals of all racial and religious backgrounds, even though most participants were African American and Christian. Achievements and Nonviolent Philosophy True to its mission, the SCLC participated in a number of civil rights campaigns, including citizenship schools, which served to teach African Americans to read so they could pass voter registration literacy tests; various protests to end racial divides in Birmingham, Ala.; and the March on Washington to end segregation nationwide. It also played a role in 1963Ã¢â¬â¢s Selma Voting Rights Campaign, 1965Ã¢â¬â¢s March to Montgomery and 1967Ã¢â¬â¢s Poor Peoples Campaign, which reflected KingÃ¢â¬â¢s increasing interest in addressing issues of economic inequality. In essence, the many achievements for which King is remembered are direct outgrowths of his involvement in the SCLC. During the 1960s, the group was in its heyday and considered to be one of the Ã¢â¬Å"Big FiveÃ¢â¬ civil rights organizations. In addition to the SCLC, the Big Five consisted of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the National Urban League, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and the Congress on Racial Equality. Given Martin Luther KingÃ¢â¬â¢s philosophy of nonviolence, it was no surprise that the group he presided over also adopted the pacifist platform inspired by Mahatma Gandhi. But by the late 1960s and early 1970s, many young black people, including those in SNCC, believed that nonviolence wasnÃ¢â¬â¢t the answer to the widespread racism in the United States. Supporters of the black power movement, in particular, believed self-defense and, thus, violence was necessary for blacks in the United States and worldwide to win equality. In fact, they had seen many blacks in African countries under European rule achieve independence through violent means and wondered whether black Americans should do the same. This shift in thinking after KingÃ¢â¬â¢s assassination in 1968 may be why the SCLC wielded less influence as time went on. After KingÃ¢â¬â¢s death, the SCLC discontinued the national campaigns for which it was known, instead focusing on small campaigns throughout the South. When King protÃ ©gÃ © the Rev. Jesse Jackson Jr. left the group, it suffered a blow since Jackson ran the economic arm of the group, known as Operation Breadbasket. And by the 1980s, both the civil rights and black power movements had effectively ended. One major achievement of the SCLC following KingÃ¢â¬â¢s demise was its work to get a national holiday in his honor. After facing years of resistance in Congress, the Martin Luther King Jr. federal holiday was signed into law by President Ronald Reagan on Nov. 2, 1983. The SCLC Today The SCLC may have originated in the South, but today the group has chapters in all regions of the United States. It has also expanded its mission from domestic civil rights issues to global human rights concerns. Although several Protestant pastors played roles in its founding, the group describes itself as an Ã¢â¬Å"interfaithÃ¢â¬ organization. The SCLC has had several presidents. Ralph Abernathy succeeded Martin Luther King after his assassination. Abernathy died in 1990. The groupÃ¢â¬â¢s longest serving president was the Rev. Joseph E. Lowery, who held the office from 1977 to 1997. Lowery is now in his 90s. Other SCLC presidents include KingÃ¢â¬â¢s son Martin L. King III, who served from 1997 to 2004. His tenure was marked by controversy in 2001, after the board suspended him for not taking an active enough role in the organization. King was reinstated after just a week, though, and his performance reportedly improved following his brief ouster. In October 2009, the Rev. Bernice A. King Ã¢â¬â another King child Ã¢â¬â made history by becoming the first woman ever elected as president of the SCLC. In January 2011, however, King announced that she would not serve as president because she believed that the board wanted her to be a figurehead leader rather than play a real role in running the group. Bernice KingÃ¢â¬â¢s refusal to serve as president isnÃ¢â¬â¢t the only blow the group has suffered in recent years. Different factions of the groupÃ¢â¬â¢s executive board have gone to court to establish control over the SCLC. In September 2010, a Fulton County Superior Court judge settled the matter by deciding against two board members who were under investigation for mismanaging almost $600,000 of SCLC funds. Bernice KingÃ¢â¬â¢s election as president was widely hoped to breathe new life into the SCLC, but her decision to turn down the role as well as the groupÃ¢â¬â¢s leadership troubles, has led to talk of the SCLC unraveling. Civil Rights scholar Ralph Luker told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Bernice KingÃ¢â¬â¢s rejection of the presidency Ã¢â¬Å"brings up again the question of whether there is a future for SCLC. There are a lot of people who think that SCLCÃ¢â¬â¢s time has passed.Ã¢â¬ As of 2017, the group continues to exist. In fact, it held its 59th convention, featuring the ChildrenÃ¢â¬â¢s Defense FundÃ¢â¬â¢s Marian Wright Edelman as keynote speaker, July 20-22, 2017. The SCLCÃ¢â¬â¢s website states that its organizational focus Ã¢â¬Å"is to promote spiritual principles within our membership and local communities;Ã to educate youth and adults in the areas of personal responsibility, leadership potential, and community service; to ensure economic justice and civil rightsÃ in the areas of discrimination and affirmative action; and to eradicate environmental classism and racism wherever it exists.Ã¢â¬ Today Charles Steele Jr., a former Tuscaloosa, Ala., city councilman and Alabama state senator, serves as CEO. DeMark Liggins serves as chief financial officer. As the United States experiences a rise in racial turmoil following the 2016 election of Donald J. Trump as president, the SCLC has become engaged in the effort to remove Confederate monuments throughout the South. In 2015, a young white supremacist, fond of Confederate symbols, gunned down black worshippersÃ at Emanuel A.M.E. Church in Charleston, S.C. In 2017 in Charlottesville, Va., a white supremacist used his vehicle to fatally mow down a woman protesting a gathering of white nationalists outraged by the removal of Confederate statues. Accordingly, in August 2017, the Virginia chapter of the SCLC advocated to have a statue of a Confederate monument removed from Newport News and replaced with an African American history-maker such as Frederick Douglass. Ã¢â¬Å"These individuals are civil rights leaders,Ã¢â¬ SCLC Virginia President Andrew Shannon told news station WTKR 3. Ã¢â¬Å"They fought for freedom, justice and equality for all. This Confederate monument does not represent freedom justice and equality for all. It represents racial hatred, division and bigotry.Ã¢â¬ Ã As the nation resists a surge in white supremacist activity and regressive policies, the SCLC may find that its mission is as needed in the 21st century as it was in the 1950s and 60s.

Those are the words of prominent French diplomat Charles Maurice De Talleyrand after spending a year in the United States. Those words of respect came because of the actions and influences that Alexander Hamilton had on a young United States that still have an effect today.

The Philadelphia convention ultimately resulted in the new Constitution for the United States. Hamilton had little influence on writing the constitution and felt like it was still not 100 percent optimal to his view of a strong central government, but signed it anyway as a delegate from New York. In HamiltonÃ¢â¬â¢s eyes it was much better in his eyes then the Articles of Confederation. Even Though the constitution did not align with HamiltonÃ¢â¬â¢s views perfectly, he championed the ratification of the constitution. Hamilton along with James Madison, and John Jay then authored a series of papers that became known as the Federalist Papers. These Papers supported the ratification of the New Consti tution.

Question: Explain the importance of situating a society's cultural and artistic expressions within a historical context and Examine the influences of intellectual, religious, political, and socio-economic forces on social, cultural, and artistic expressions. Answer: Introduction Indian sculpture is as ancient as the origin of civilization process. Great baths of the Mohenjo-Daro is one of the finest ancient sculptures of Indus valley civilizations. The Vedic period was marked by pastoral settlements of bamboo, mud, timber and thatch in the valleys of Saraswati and Ganga. The structures of perishable timber were not available in that period, but the facts were based on the evidence left by the Buddhist sculptures of second and third century B.C. The temple of Hindu was also constructed with different sizes and shapes (Boardman, Griffin Murray, n.d.). The art and sculpture of Greek had a thoughtful effect throughout the ages. The style of the sculptures has been copied and reproduces by the modern day audiences creating finest art in the world class. The western sculpture and art was derived from the Roman art. The Alexander the great conquest in the East gave birth to the Greco-Buddhist art. The Greece used different types materials in their art and sculptur e including limestone, marble and stone and other materials such as mud and clay were used. The sculptures of Greece are very important as it tells the story about heroes, God, Greek culture, events and Mythical; creatures in general. Main context Social, cultural, and artistic contributions to historical changes The sculpture and art of ancient Indian and Greek had many difference and similarities. Even though the cultures are far away, they depict the same topics: goddesses and gods, royalty, animals, myth and sports. In sculptures, Indians had used a variety of materials and Greece used mostly stones. The paintings of sculptures are also similar, but the architecture was different (Lewellen, 2002). The architecture of Greek used golden ratio and buildings were made up of marble. Greek also used an ionic and Doric column for holding the building roof up. The buildings of India had elaborately carved design like dancing of god, goddess and people. In Greek theatre, there was a lot of theatres performed but it was not much in India. The Plays in Greece and India were based on myth. Importance of cultural and artistic expressions The arrival of the Alexander the Great on the north western border of India was called as the Greeks Yavanas. A Sanskrit grammarian, Panini was acquainted with the yavana word. The term Yavanani was explained by the Katyaanaa as the script of Yavanas. The grammar of Panini was known as the Asthadhyayi, which means eight chapters of classical Sanskrit and Panini at the end of the Vedic period. The beginnings of contacts of India with Mediterranean area were date back to the early era and in the sixth century B.C. they were found registered in the Greek sources (Barringer, 2014). The contacts were continued in the history of Greece, which helps to identify the culture values and ideals links with India. In each era, the important challenges in political situations, directedness of trade connections and broadening of geographical horizons was an important process in Greek culture that has been marked with the growing notions about India. Influences of religious, political, intellectual, and socio-economic forces on cultural, social, and the artistic expressions In the period between 600 BCE to 300 BCE, there are some the ideas that are shared by the Greece and India such as monism, unitary inner self, incorporeal being. There are several of the similarities between the Indian and Greek culture that is best explained related to their common indo-European heritage (Hitchens, 2007). There have been influences of the intellectual, political, religious and the forces of social economic on the artistic and the cultural expressions. India has the richest cultural heritage throughput the world, the art belongings to the sculpture were mostly practised throughout the subcontinent. Painting in the India is mainly concerned with the religious deities. The sculptures in the India vary from 2500 BCE to 1800 BCE during the production of the bronze and terracotta sculptures. The dancing girl belongings to the Mohenjo-Daro are the eventual masterpiece. The Greek sculptures evolved from 800 TO 300 BCE, which was mainly inspired by the art to Egypt and near eastern monumental. Historical developments in world cultures Long before the developments within the Indian and the Greece, Alexander arrived in India in the north-western borders of the India. The start related to the Hellenistic Period is mainly taken as 323 BC, and the Persian Empire was conquered by King Darius (Kaminsky Long, 2011). The term Renaissance means rebirth, and this started within the fourteenth century in Italy. All of the events were heralded with the recovery of Italian scholars related to the Greek and the classical literature of Roman. The mediaeval Europe was unified, and there was a smaller area that was divided into smaller and the culturally diversified political units that were completely dominated by the Roman empires (Nadel, 2005). Earlier Greek sculptures were mostly the bronze and the porous limestone's but there were while bronze that never seems too gone out of the fashion (Kaminsky Long, 2011). The cave paintings of the Palaeolithic I helpful in describing the early ancestors related to the production of the art. Conclusion Greek sculptures were free from the artistic conventions relating with the many of the civilizations. Many of the Greek words are consulted by well known 3D artists that aim to create virtual images. There has been historical evidence related to the influences of the Egyptian canon within the traditions that prevailed in the Greece. The conclusion can be made as the Greek civilization mainly influenced India within the period after the Alexanders campaigning in India. The Greek-influenced on the Indian sculptures, by the tradition art and the desired paintings. The study revealed the desired facts related to the sculptures that prevailed within the India and the Greek. References Barringer, J. (2014). The art and archaeology of ancient Greece.

Introduction The American election debate usually attracts a lot of interest from its citizenry and the whole world due to the fact that the United States is a world super-power. Additionally, policies implemented by presidential contenders once they assume office tend to have ripple effects on the whole world.Advertising We will write a custom essay sample on The Immigration Debate specifically for you for only $16.05 $11/page Learn More The November elections this year will pit incumbent president Barrack Obama who is a Democrat, against Mitt Romney who is a Republican. It is noteworthy to mention that these two presidential candidates do not concur on most of the social and economic issues, which the federal state should address. Immigration is one of the aspects on which Romney and Obama have different perspectives. It touches on the Dream Act, border fencing and the problem of undocumented workers. In MarottiÃ¢â¬â¢s words, Ã¢â¬Å"Obama says he has passed legislation that has helped immigrants in America, and Romney says he will be the one to sort out the immigration issue America is faced withÃ¢â¬ (par. 2). Border Fences The American government has made significant strides in ensuring that its border, especially with Mexico, is impervious. However, there are occasions when individuals deem it appropriate to cross the border without legal authority from the immigration department. It is in this regard that Obama is agitating for the deployment of additional 20,000 security personnel to fortify border security (Wood par. 4). Additionally, he vehemently proposes the building of a 370 mile high security fence on the American-Mexican border to ward-off illegal immigrants. Mitt Romney also passionately advocates for the beefing up of border security. Additionally, he highly advocates for introduction of an electronic entry and exit verification system. The system will ensure that a vetting process is installed to confirm that p eople entering the country are recognized by the immigration department. Such drastic measures according to Romney are necessary, because a chunk of illegal immigrants hail from South America and get into the united states via Mexico. Consequently, it is quite crucial that anyone who wants to get into the United States via the Mexican border is kept at bay, regardless of the individualÃ¢â¬â¢s creed, color or race (Marotti par. 7). According to Wood, Ã¢â¬Å"Romney has sought to put immigration reform in an economic context, suggesting changes designed to help American businessÃ¢â¬ (par. 5).Advertising Looking for essay on government?

Get your first paper with 15% OFF Learn More The Dream Act The Dream Act which was introduced to the American congress in 2001 is yet to be ratified, because it cannot garner enough support from both sides of the floor. It seeks to provide legal status, education and jobs to individuals who came to the Uni ted States when under sixteen years of age but are yet to attain the age of 30. Incidentally, president Obama supports the Dream Act and is intent is to ensure that the above mentioned individuals are accorded citizenship (Marotti par. 8). President Obama saved a host of young illegal immigrants from deportation in June, when he granted them two-year work permits through executive decision. Accordingly, this shows his unwavering commitment in his concern for the welfare of immigrants. On the contrary, Romney is opposed to the ratification of the Dream Act in all regards. Romney predicates that giving any illegal immigrants a soft landing will only provide momentum for additional immigrants to flock into the country. His deep conviction is that illegal immigration should be curtailed. However, he asserts that students from overseas who study in the United States should be granted work visas upon graduating, especially those from science and engineering disciplines (Iverac par. 8). Un documented Workers The other perspective of immigration is the thorny issue of undocumented workers. Obama holds the view that the federal state should initiate and expedite the formalization of citizenship for illegal immigrants. He believes that it is the moral duty of the federal state to accord illegal immigrants a fair trial before deporting them back to their countries. He is lobbying for the actualization of a guest worker program to enable the economy meet its high demand for low-skill low-wage labor. Furthermore, he underscores the importances of having an employment verification system to enable employers tell whether the person being hired is a legal or illegal immigrant (Wood par. 5). Subsequently, this sort of information from employers can go a long way in helping the state to keep tabs on the number of immigrants working in the country, both legal and illegal. On the other hand, Mitt Romney castigates illegal immigrants. He believes that they should all go back to the ir countries and re-apply for immigration into the United States. As a result, he is championing for the self deportation strategy where the federal government makes it impossible for illegal immigrants to secure jobs in the United States (Iverac par. 9). He argues that making life abrasive for illegal immigrants will make them want to go home without any coercion by the state. Romney believes that the current and previous regimes have been playing cat and mouse games with illegal immigrants for a long time, and it is time the issue is brought to an end.Advertising We will write a custom essay sample on The Immigration Debate specifically for you for only $16.05 $11/page Learn More He is propagating the sanctioning of employers who hire illegal immigrants, in order to deter the menace of illegal immigrants doing jobs that would have otherwise been taken up by legal immigrants and ordinary citizens. On a lighter note, Romney is seeking support from all q uarters to relax the laws that enable people acquire temporary work permits. He believes that immigrants play a very pivotal role in the economic development of the nation. Therefore, by enabling people get entry into the United States where they can be more productive is instrumental in job creation and technological innovation, if the law is followed to the letter (Wood par. 9). A point of concurrence on the immigration issue between Obama and Romney is the employer electronic verification system. They believe this should be implemented to enable employers screen the immigration status of possible employees. Conclusion The United States of America is epitomized by everyone around the world for its impeccable infrastructure, education, quality healthcare and freedom of expression. Consequently it is a dream destination for people who live in less developed countries (Marotti par. 5). Therefore, scores of people will continue applying for green card lotteries in a bid to gain entry into the United States. However, there are those unscrupulous individuals who will always try to circumvent the system by gaining illegal entry into the country, through the porous borders or otherwise. By and large, the immigration issue is a sensitive matter and it should not be subjected to political rhetoric by republicans or democrats. Much as the candidates will try to appease voters mostly of South American descent, the crux of the matter is that illegal immigrants are not eligible to vote. Illegal immigrants will still be a source of unemployment in the United States, if their grievances are relegated to a lip service discourse and not decisively dealt with. Iverac argues that, Ã¢â¬Å"What precisely will happen next year depends whether two parties will be able to reach a compromiseÃ¢â¬ (par. 25). Works Cited Iverac, Mireta.

Aisha Rapant Essays (1576 words) - Literature, Absurdist Fiction Aisha Rapant Essay The Stranger Seeing past normality Albert Camus creates a series of characters in The Stranger whose personality traits and motivations mirror those that are overlooked by the average man. Camus develops various characters and scenarios that are considered rude and unpleasant, but because it has become common, society accepts it as norms. Camus incorporates atrocious personality traits of the characters, variety, consistency, and everyone's fate through the creation of the characters. Camus demonstrates the disregarded reason behind the origins of relationships between people to characterize people as selfish. The relationship between Salamano and his dog displays how Salamano as self-centered. When Meursault mentions, "He hadn't been happy with his wife, but he'd pretty much gotten used to her. When she died , he had been very lonely. So he asked a shop buddy for a dog and he'd gotten this one very young" (Camus, 44), the inconsideration is displayed. This evidence proves the wife's lack of importance towards Salamano , but along with time, he adapted to her, just like he did with the dog. After her death, he became lonely which supports the reason for him getting the dog. Not to love the dog, but instead to put an end to his loneliness. Another source of selfishness is shown through the relationship between Marie and Meursault. Meursault's lack of communication and the excess amount of physical contact desired and received is displayed by Meursault in the reference, "I kissed her. We didn't say anything more from that point on. I held her to me " (35). The textual support confirms that Meursault's purpose with Marie, for her physical appearance and not her personality. The relationship between Meursault and Raymond displays another representation of a person being egoistic in the novel. When Meursault states that " According to Raymond, all I had to do was to state that the girl had cheated on him. I agreed to act as a witness for him" (37), the contextu al evidence proves that Raymond only uses Meursault for his own benefit by making him his witness. In this relationship, Camus presents Raymond with selfish-like characteristics for using Meursault for his own benefit and not returning the favor to Meursault. Camus employs a change in routine, Meursault having food with other people, which reveals the unexpected cause for him becoming involved and encountering bad situations. Meursault mentions that "I ate at the restaurant, at Celeste's , as usual" (Camus, 3), which displays his every day routine. The principal factor of his everyday routine which involves food, usually took place at Celeste's . Meursault in the textual quote displays a shift in his food routine when mentioning, I've [Raymond] got some blood sausage and some wine at my place. How about joining me' (28)? Raymond's invitation leads up to him becoming involved in a faulty situation. Meursault mentions the situation when saying, "He'd thought of asking me to write it for him. Since I didn't say anything, he asked if I'd mind doing it right then and I said no" (32). Through the excuse of just having dinner with Raymond, it results in Meursault writing a letter to Raymond's ex-girlfriend. Later the letter cause s a quarrel which results in Meursault becoming a witness as well. Another instance of a change from Celeste's restaurant is when Meursault consumes coffee at his mother's funeral. Another change in routine is shown by Meursault when he mentions, "Then he offered to bring me a cup of coffee with milk. I like milk in my coffee, so I said yes, and he came back a few minutes later with a tray. I drank the coffee" (8). Instead of eating at Celeste's or drinking coffee there, Meursault decides to drink coffee at his mother's nursing home. During this time, he does not cry during his mother's funeral and many witnesses notice this fact. The result of not crying reappears during the court scene where they mention several times that he lacks emotions for not crying at his mother's funeral. With an alibi of lunch, Meursault goes to Masson's house and it leads him to becoming involved in a huge problem. Following with Masson's routine, "My wife always takes a nap
