I titled this "The World May Look the Same to Everyone..." because I think that is a very true concept of everyone living in today's world. The world appears to be a sphere with geographical landmarks and continents to everyone, but not everyone has the same views and beliefs of the world. This is something that has occurred to me that is present in all of the texts we've read. These different views and ideas have been around ever since the world began and it is something that will never become extinct. There will always be different ideas or religions practiced by different people and I think it is important to realize and understand these differences, specifically by exploring the views and beliefs of the characters we have read about. A brief overview of some characters beliefs is the particular belief from The Daodejing is that people should not try too hard and let things come naturally, Pangloss’s philosophy, Sigmund Freud’s belief that one cannot live fully unless they have a feeling of complete oneness with their thinking and themselves as a whole, and the view of the world from Georg’s friend living in Germany from “The Judgement”. By looking at the differences of views and beliefs from these characters’, it makes us realize that is still how the world is today. No matter how similar the world looks physically, it is made of up many different beliefs and views that make our world seem different to everyone.
