Do theories such as Hanslick’s about musical beauty seem applicable to other arts as well? If not, what does this mean in terms of our ability to “define” what art is?

The various philosophical approaches to art that we have studied all involve discussion of specific arts: Hanslick deals with music, Plato with poetry and speaking, Nietzsche with tragedy and drama (as well as music), and Tolstoy with music and literature primarily. Do you see any connection between the theories each develops to explain the nature of art and their chosen examples of art? Do theories such as Hanslick’s about musical beauty seem applicable to other arts as well? If not, what does this mean in terms of our ability to “define” what art is?

Describe your personal philosophy for leading and managing in the energy industry.

You have been selected as a new senior leader in a publicly traded global energy organization. Prior to assuming your new role, you have been asked to prepare a document to introduce yourself to your global team. This is your leadership philosophy. A leadership philosophy introduces you as the new leader and allows both your senior leaders as well as your team to understand your approach to managing and leading the organization as it pursues it’s organizational goals.

Explore the legal rights and responsibilities of the tenant and the landlord.

Larry Landlord has recently renovated an apartment and has put it on the market to be rented for $800.00 a month. Larry Landlord has been in business for approximately five (5) years and has had both positive and negative experiences with tenants. Larry Landlord is hoping to find a good, long-term tenant for his apartment. Roger Renter saw Larry’s sign for the apartment for rent and thought the location and the apartment would be perfect. Roger met Larry to look at the apartment and Roger fell in love with it. All of the interior fixtures had been replaced and the unit had a nice large closet. Roger noticed that although newly painted, the exterior of the apartment did show a little bit of wear. Because of the condition of the exterior of the building, Roger asked Larry about any roof leaks. Larry stated that he had never had a leak and was not aware of any leaks.

Roger and Larry entered into a valid contract for the rental of the apartment. (Note: The issue of whether or not a contract exists is NOT part of this question. For purposes of this question assume the contract is valid and there are no issues with the contract.)

Roger Renter was very happy in his new location; the apartment was quiet and the neighbors were friendly. Larry Landlord was also very happy because Roger Renter was a model tenant. Roger Renter paid on time and was quiet and respectful to other tenants.

The part of the country where Roger rented was rainy in the summertime. Roger rented and moved into the apartment in October. In June, a tremendous rainstorm occurred and Roger’s roof began to leak. The leak was minor at first and Roger merely put a trash can under the leak and had no other issues that month. When handing over his monthly rent check, Roger told Larry about the small leak. Larry thanked Roger for letting him know about the leak and told Roger he would have it fixed.

The next month the rains came again and the leak grew larger in Roger’s apartment. Roger was not home at the time of the rain and therefore the leak damaged some of Roger’s furniture. Roger called Larry to let him know that there was a leak and asked when it might be fixed. Roger also stated that he thought Larry had fixed the roof. Larry curtly stated, “When it rains, sometimes it pours. When it pours, sometimes it leaks.” Roger did not like Larry’s tone or response and called back to ask when the roof might be fixed. Larry stated, “When I get to it.” The following day, Roger sent Larry a note about the roof leak and asked Larry to please address the issue.

The week before the rent was due, another rainstorm occurred and the leak was even larger. This time the leak damaged Roger’s clothing, furniture, and some precious items he had inherited from family members. Roger called Larry and asked Larry to fix roof immediately. Larry responded in a similar and condescending manner. Roger hung up the phone and threw his baseball bat against the wall, damaging the drywall and knocking out an electrical socket.

Since it was the rainy season, Roger knew it would rain again and therefore simply moved his items away from the leak and did nothing to help mitigate the damage from the leaking roof.

Larry came into the apartment to investigate the leak and found damage from not only the leak but also from the thrown baseball bat. Roger states that the baseball bat damage was a direct result of Larry’s inability to fix the leak based on his anger from Larry’s curt response.

Suppose you are a mediator. In five to seven (5-7) pages discuss the rights and responsibilities of the landlord and the tenant in which you:

Explore the legal rights and responsibilities of the tenant and the landlord.
Decide whether or not the landlord and / or the tenant had a legal duty to mitigate damages.
Determine whether or not Larry has legal grounds to evict Roger. Explain why or why not.
Describe whether or not Roger has a legal obligation to pay for the damage he caused and determine whether or not Larry would be liable for any direct damage.
Support each response with facts presented in the scenario.

Choose a philosophical work by any philosopher.What was the work about? Did you understand the work?

Choose a philosophical work by any philosopher. Even from wikipedia will qualify.  Describe what the work was about and give true reflection. Some questions that can be answered within the paper are: what was the work about? Did you understand the work? Was it easy to read or not? Where do you agree or disagree? Did you like, hate or love it? Why? How does it reflect the Philosopher’s world and how does it reflect our world today? Do you recommend it why or why not?
