What is the Difference Between Common Law and Civil Law?

Code – the collection of laws of a country or laws related to a particular subject. Codification – the process of compiling and systematizing laws into a code.

 

Common law – the system of law that emerged in England begin- ning in the Middle Ages and is based on case law and precedent rather than codified law.

Tomato or potato?

"I think a tomato is much more spiritual than 1+2=3 [...] When people ask: 'What is the fundamental principal of Buddhism?', you may very well answer: 'A tomato'. Because, look how, when you examine the material world, how diaphanous it is. It really isn't very solid. A tomato doesn't last very long." ~Alan Watts in audio: "Comparative Philosophy - Philosophy of Nature" {http://ow.ly/SACuh}

function of the fool

 

https://www.cliffsnotes.com/literature/k/king-lear/character-analysis/fool

 

The Fool assumes the role of Lear's protector when Cordelia is banished. The Fool functions much as a Chorus would in a Greek tragedy, commenting upon events and the king's actions and acting, in some ways, as the king's conscience. The Fool is the king's advocate, loyal and honest, but he is also able to point out the king's faults, as no one else can. The Fool's use of irony, sarcasm, and humor help to ease the truth, and allows him to moderate Lear's behavior. The Fool shares his master's fate, and this reinforces the impression that the Fool's purpose is to protect Lear until Cordelia can arrive to help her father. Both Cordelia and the Fool are caretakers for Lear, and when one is present, the other need not be.
