A Biographical Look into Arthur Miller’s Understanding of Wives and Mothers
Xiaojuan YAO,Jingrui HUI
Studies in Literature and Language , 2012, DOI: 10.3968/j.sll.1923156320120503.1119
Abstract: The article attempts to examine Arthur Miller’s biographical background especially his mother, his wives and the other women around him and investigate his relationship with them in order to gain a better understanding of the wife and mother figures in Miller’s plays. Seen from the more general background, Miller’s particular outlook on wives and mothers is influenced greatly by his biographical background. His mother’s struggle with his father and her desire for knowledge as well as her courage and strength in the economic crisis, together with his own three marriages, especially his tremulous life with the sex symbol Marilyn Monroe and also all the other women around him all contribute to his shaping of authentic and complex wife and mother images in his plays. Key words: Arthur Miller; Understanding; Mothers; Wives
The Feminine Rebel: Treacherous Housewife-mothers and Aggressive Wives Fighting for Personal Identity in Authur Miller’s After the Fall
Xiaojuan YAO
Studies in Literature and Language , 2012, DOI: 10.3968/2263
Abstract: This article attempts to explore Arthur Miller’s representation of wife and mother characters in his play After the Fall. In the play, Miller puts more emphasis on his wife and mother characters’ awakening and rebellion. Miller portrays Rose as a treacherous housewife-mother who rebels against the idealized woman image of loving wife and sacrificial mother by becoming a separate person, asserting her own ambition and meeting her own demands. And through Louise’s victory in her fighting for personal identify, Miller shows women’s strong voices in their family. Besides, via Maggie’s tragedy in her self-pursuit, Miller proves that women can be as significant and tragic as men. In his effort to depict wife and mother’s rebellious spirits, Miller creates some complicated and diverse wife and mother images. So, that his representations of autonomous women achieve victories and suffer defeats disproves the viewpoint that Miller’s women are mere objects of male desire without self-defined identity.

Some Thoughts on American Legal Culture: the Legal ‘Abject’ in Arthur Miller’s The Crucible and in William Gaddis’ A Frolic of His Own.
Anna-Maria Konsta
Intellectum , 2009,
Abstract: The paper explores through the analysis of the novels “The Crucible” by Arthur Miller and “A Frolic of His Own” by William Gaddis the way people who are initially subjects of law, i.e. holders of rights and obligations, can be transformed by the law and through the law into ‘abjects’. An ‘abject’ is considered to be a person who at some point comes in contact with ‘the fragility of the law’; in other words with actions that take place when the limits and rules fall apart and transform people into abjects of law, a ‘dead body’.
The Limits of Misogyny: Schopenhauer, “On Women”
Thomas Grimwood
Kritike : an Online Journal of Philosophy , 2008,
Abstract: Given that, for the past thirty years or so, there has appeared a seemingly limitless range of approaches to the “problem of woman” in Nietzsche’s writing, it is somewhat surprising that his oft-cited philosophical mentor, Arthur Schopenhauer, has largely escaped the same scrupulous attention. Indeed, the idea that Schopenhauer despised women has gone relatively unchallenged in general philosophical literature from around the 1930’s onwards. Schopenhauer’s role as an “arch-misogynist” serves as an unproblematic background figure or frame of reference to the more unsavoury elements of texts by the likes of Nietzsche, Freud and so on. For example, in Francis Nesbitt Oppel’s recent work on Nietzsche, Schopenhauer’s texts are cited as a means to interpreting Nietzsche’s “misogyny” as ironic: in order to analyse Nietzsche’s writing on women as an ironic play on misogyny, there is aneed for an “original” misogyny to supply the object of such an irony. Schopenhauer, in brief citation, serves as a ready example of such “original” misogyny, without the need for direct interpretative engagement.

The Modigliani-Miller Theorem with Financial Intermediation  [PDF]
John F. McDonald
Modern Economy (ME) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/me.2011.22022
Abstract: This paper shows that, if firms borrow at an interest rate that is greater than the rate at which they can lend, the value of a firm declines with the amount borrowed. The model assumes the possibility that a firm may go bankrupt, which introduces the need for financial intermediation. A modified version of the homemade lev-erage examples introduced by Modigliani and Miller [2] is used to introduce the concept. A state-preference model is used for a more formal proof.
The Modigliani-Miller Theorem for Equity Participation  [PDF]
John F. McDonald
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2012.24066
Abstract: The paper shows that the use of an equity participation loan has no effect on the value of the firm, and that taxation of the borrowing firm and lender reduces firm value. The paper includes the assumption that firms borrow at an interest rate that is greater than the rate at which they can lend, so the value of the firm declines with the amount borrowed. Also, it is assumed that the firm may go bankrupt, which introduces the need for financial intermediation, as discussed by McDonald [1]. A state-preference model is employed.

El problema de la demarcación en estética: una crítica del criterio de Danto
Revista de Estudios Sociales , 2008,
Abstract: the development of the visual arts during the twentieth century blurred the boundaries between what is, and what is not, considered art. arthur danto proposed an aesthetic theory that would allow us to redefine the boundaries of art. in this article, i examine two of the most problematic aspects of danto's theory: the excessive weight he gives to the concept of mimesis, and his teleological conception of the history of art. if these two elements are attenuated, the theory loses most of its explanatory power. in the last two sections of the article, i argue that the artworld to which danto gives a central role in the demarcation problem is only a byproduct of the conditions that determine the nature of art in general.
