parable

Son and Father (by Ignacy Krasicki)

Every age has its bitter, every age has its grief:
Son toiled o'er his book, father was vexed beyond belief.
The one had no rest; the other no freedom, forsooth:
Father lamented his age, son lamented his youth.

 

c.f

A parable is a succinct story, in prose or verse, that illustrates a moral or religious lesson. It differs from a fable in that fables use animals, plants, inanimate objects, and forces of nature as characters, while parables generally feature human characters.

paradigm

from wiki

The word paradigm (pronounced /ˈpærədaɪm/) has been used in linguistics and science to describe distinct concepts. Until the 1960s, the word was specific to grammar: the 1900 Merriam-Webster dictionary defines its technical use only in the context of grammar or, in rhetoric, as a term for an illustrative parable or fable.

 

interesting phrase

Paradigm shift

Paradigm shifts tend to be most dramatic in sciences that appear to be stable and mature, as in physics at the end of the 19th century. At that time, physicist Lord Kelvin famously stated, "There is nothing new to be discovered in physics now. All that remains is more and more precise measurement." Five years later, Albert Einstein published his paper on special relativity, which challenged the very simple set of rules laid down by Newtonian mechanics, which had been used to describe force and motion for over two hundred years. In this case, the new paradigm reduces the old to a special case in the sense that Newtonian mechanics is still a good model for approximation for speeds that are slow compared to the speed of light.

 

 

 

paradox

para-dox(思想,opinion)

n. [a seemingly absurd or self-contradictory statement that is or may be true]

paragon

para-gon

n. [a model of excellence]

  ex. a paragon of virtue

  ex. We don't expect candidates to be paragons of virtue.

 

ps. A paragon is a large, flawless diamond. The title is now used figuratively to denote a model of excellence or perfection of any kind; one having no equal; a perfect embodiment of a concept.

簡單的說paragon就是個大的,無瑕疵的鑽石

 

長知識(from wiki):The largest flawless diamond in the world is known as The Paragon — a D-class gem weighing 137.82 carats (27.56 g), which is the 10th largest white diamond in the world. The gem was mined in Brazil and attracted attention for being an exceptional white, flawless stone of great size.
