This is an extract from dissertation on Buddhism:
Buddhism and Kant’s theory are both two theories that in many ways are alike, but at the same time they are different. They share similar and different beliefs, and practices. In this dissertation I will describe Buddhism and Kant’s theories. I will also show the similarities and differences between these two theories.
Buddhism is a religion and a philosophy. Buddhism is based on the teachings of Siddharta Gautama, who is known as Buddha. The main goal of a Buddhist is to reach nirvana. The Buddhist beliefs are called dharma. Dharma has many meanings. It can mean teachings, truth, and the elements of experience. Nirvana is emancipation from suffering. It is also detachment from desire. To reach nirvana it is essential to give up attachments to the things of this world, and to see the interconnectedness of everything, and to clear your mind so that you can see things the way they really are.

This is an extract from dissertation on Napoleon and French Revolution:
Napoleon played a major part in not only France’s history, but all of Europe’s as well. Napoleon was a child of the Enlightenment and the Revolution. Napoleon affected Europe during and after his short reign. Though Napoleon had a short reign, it was a successful one. Many things contributed to his rise and fall to power. Europe wouldn’t be what it is now, if it wasn’t for Napoleon and the French Revolution.
The rise of Napoleon is very complicated. There were many things that played a part in his rise. If the French Revolution wouldn’t have occurred, then he wouldn’t have had a reign. The Revolution happened because the people were not happy with the Old Regime. The Old Regime used the feudalism system left from the Middle Ages. France had three major social classes also known as estates. The First Estate was made up of Church officials, the Second Estate was made up of nobles and wealthy land owners, and the Third (and largest) Estate was made up of three groups: the bourgeoisie (merchants and artisans), laborers (cooks, servants, and others), and the peasants (serfs). The Old Regime had a major problem; they were making the Third Estate very mad. They would allow the church officials to be exempt from taxes and make the nobles and wealthy land owners pay little taxes and then they made the Third Estate pay high taxes. This made the Third Estate very upset and what even made it worse was that France was in major debt. Continue reading
This is an extract from dissertation on American Dream:
In the past fifty years, many people have sought out the American Dream. Many changes had to take place in our society for some people to reach this. The dream has been affected and changed throughout the years, but still not all can achieve it to this day, though it may be easier. It has been an adventure and somewhat of a struggle, but it still seems that some people were not quite able to reach the American Dream.
The typical American dream is to own a nice house, at least one car, a job to support a family, and security. Not many people in the early days could achieve this dream for various reasons. For example, by the 1970’s, all working women combined earned only 60% of the males salary and only 12% of women in the 1950’s had jobs. Therefore, not everyone could live the American Dream.

This is an extract from dissertation on Genetic Engineering:
Genetic engineering is a scientific process that has recently come a long way. Within the past four years of the twentieth century we have witnessed the most rapid adoption of a new technology in history. Millions of acres of farmland have been planted with genetically engineered crops since 1996. The crops consist mainly of corn, soybeans, and cotton. Genetic engineering techniques allow scientists to insert specific genes into plants and/or animals. Also, species are very easily crossed using genetic engineering. There are many good things that come with genetic engineering; however, there are many bad things as well. Because of this, genetic engineering has caused a great deal of concern and debate.

This is an extract from dissertation on Capital Punishment:
Crime is a many and varied phenomenon. The search for answers to the problem of crime is not new nor an easy one. What is it that makes some individuals resort to criminal behaviour while others do not? It is intended in this essay to discuss and compare three criminological theories: Classicism – Positivism and Sutherland’s differential association theory, and how they have aided today’s understanding of crime.
Prior to classical criminology’s evolution in European society, the explanation of human behaviour was approached in one of two different ways. One was spiritualistic and the other was naturalistic. The spiritualistic explanation was one of other world powers or spirits controlling objects or persons and effecting their behaviour. Therefore criminal behaviour was caused by the individual being possessed by demons. On the other hand the naturalistic theory postulated that the explanation must be found within the world of physical and material fact (Vold, 1979). Continue reading

This is an example dissertation chapter on Intelligence:
Intelligence is a word that describes the ability of an individual to perform desired tasks well. Over the years many people have come up with their own idea of what intelligence is, based on what they feel is important. It has been a trend in the past for people to think that intelligence is correlated to academic achievement. That is, the ability to perform well at linguistics, mathematics, logics and other school-based forms of intelligence as discussed in class.
Recently there has been a switch to try to include a wider range of things in the definition of intelligence, such as problem solving skills, abstract reasoning, adaptability to the environment, mental processing speed, creativity, motivation, goal-directed behavior, sensory acuity, and the ability to acquire knowledge as well as many other things as discussed in class. People have begun to believe that intelligence takes different forms depending on the requirements of the environment and the culture that you live and are raised in as discussed in class. As a result it has been difficult to develop a clear-cut definition of intelligence that will suit everyone’s beliefs. Continue reading
This is a sample dissertation chapter (example) on Asian Gangs:
All throughout the cities of America the urban population has experienced gang activity and gang violence. This is nothing new. The existence of street gangs in this country has existed for many generations. Gangs have been around since the 1950s and early 1960s. Gangs are a loosely organized group of three or more people who interact together for a common purpose and usually participate in some kind of illegal activity, whether it be violent crimes or drug dealing or both. In the United States in the past years it has been African-American gangs that seem to get much of the media attention. Gangs like the Crips and the Bloods get much notice and are often glorified in rap songs. Hispanic gangs also get a large amount of publicity. The movie “Colors” with Robert Duval and Sean Penn was a big hit in the 80’s. However, in the past years the prevalence of Asian gangs has increased (Kodluboy, 1996). Communities and law enforcement as well as most parents would obviously like to see an end to gangs and illegal gang activities. However in order to do that many things need to be understood. Mainly why do youths join gangs? How do they recruit new members and from where? Also, what activities or crimes do they participate in? The answers to these questions differ for different ethnic gangs. Therefore, the methods used to stop gang proliferation will more than likely differ depending on whether the gang is Asian, Hispanic, White or African-American. This dissertation will address some of the reasons for the existence of Asian gangs as well as contrast some of the many differences between Asian and other ethnic gangs. Continue reading
This is an extract from dissertation on marriage:
One might ask themselves what the conditions of a good marriage are. The answer to this question depends on whether the person is looking at it from a secular or religious perspective. Those looking at it from the secular view would say that a good marriage is made up of love, trust, honesty, understanding, etc. but from the religious perspective there is an added element. This element is faith, whether it is put in God, Allah, Buddha or another deity. But it can be said that both the religious and secular views have something in common when it comes to the conditions of a good marriage: they believe that marriage is a commitment between two individuals in an intimate relationship who promise to care for each others human needs.
