  1. Will you please make a video about how to write a conclusion for an essay? Your videos have helped me so much! Writing conclusions is now my only fault in my writing. And I would really like some advice…

  2. Mr. Sato, you are terrific! My students and I enjoy your videos; thank you!

  3. Very insightful. I've just subscribed and I've enjoyed a few of the videos you've posted – bitesize and concise, but very intricate. I was just wondering, in regard to symbolism.. what ways can you improve whether you're receptive to decoding symbols in texts/media? I feel I need to be in a particular mindset to achieve it, but any other time I enter something, it's with passivity. Thanks!

  5. "Learning to think, not just know is the most valuable thing you can learn in school." Words I live by.

  6. …or maybe the author just meant that the curtains were f###ing blue. Don't get me wrong, I certainly embrace death of the author, but It is possible to read too much into things.

  7. Very tedious, i.e. Draggy maybe you should mix it up a little bit by cross dressing or something. Song a dance routine maybe?

    BTW why are men who dress up in women's clothes called drag queens?

    Not a barb aimed at sex or gender roles, but emotionally and psychologically over bearing people.

    That some theories propose is a trait passed down from female members of a family.

    Like Norman Bates in Psycho, playing out the role of his deceased mother, by killing traveling females right?

    Which as the movie suggests , are usually up to no good anyway, with the female in the midst of making her getaway with embezzled money before she gets killed by Bates

    So all sorts of convoluted misogynistic feelings in that movie that's for sure, what would you expect with someone by the name of Hitch cock right?

    What's the symbolism there I wonder

  8. I've been wrestling with narrative symbolism for almost 20 years. I've read countless academic books in effort to show people that symbolism and the interpretation of symbols has a science to it even if the art still remains. I wish they would have made it as simple as you have done. Nice job. It's no To Kill a Mockingbird, But here's how I've applied it to Mad Max Fury Road. https://youtu.be/iaaOktcdkHw

  9. Definitely are gonna link these to the online boards for school. Thankyou.

  10. Proper symbols are used to associate an image with the realm of ideas as conceived by Socrates, Aristotle etc. this is no easy stuff to comprehend at all.
    Allegories are the same for political concepts and representations are the signs we use to convey the notion of love, passion, joy, sadness etc. Don't mix them up !

  12. does humain language include indexical iconic or symbolic signs ? justify your answer.

  13. Pretty good analysis of symbols, but I think I like real life examples from film to understand the application thoroughly.

  14. Question: Is there an official way to distinguish Symbols that are way more emotionally charged for a specific person than a Symbol that just entered their minds?
    Because I use a lot this word, and I'm starting to get sick of the lack of variety.
    I personally separated the "weight" of symbols into the words Badge and Emblem, but I'm not sure if there is already a therm to this situation.
    Somebody?

  15. Nice video but… this is not symbolism this is semiotics. Symbolism is a universal language that has no other knowledge prerequisites in its opperation other than you are human. It is the recognition of archetypes at a level of principles… ie the circle is probably the most powerful symbol there is, you don't need to know the name of a circle to know its qualities as experience. The circle does not actually exist as it has only x2D attributes…. it is only ever implied or represented. Yet symbolically it represents the unbroken whole…the completion, and the movement around its circumference is symbolic of time… the cycles of the day the year the century and so on…. Symbolisim could be said to be the bridge between the intellect of knowing and the experience of the manifest world of substance.
